His marriage dissolving before his very eyes, a former Marine (Skarsgård) ruins his credit by gambling online as his wife (Paula Patton) strikes up an intimate relationship on a popular social networking site. When identity theft puts their life savings at risk, the couple tracks down the man (Michael Nyqvust) they believe is responsible for the crime. Meanwhile, an introverted teenage goth (Jonah Bobo) becomes the victim of a humiliating prank when his two biggest tormentors pose as the girl he likes, trick him into exposing his true identity online. When the prank leads to tragedy, the young victim’s mother (Davis) is overwhelmed by grief as her husband (Bateman) explodes with rage. Later, an ambitious TV reporter’s quest to expose an online prostitution racket has unexpected repercussions for the frightened young man at the center of the growing controversy.

Warner reboots Superman again, with some inputs from Dark Knight wunderkind Chris Nolan. The basic storyline generally follows the expected introductary arc, but the timeline is juggled and there are a few adaptations. With his home planet Krypton about to be destroyed, a father sends his son away in a spaceship, which eventually lands on Earth. A farming couple raises the boy, who gradually learns of his super powers. When grown to manhood, the baddie from Krypton arrives, intent on destroying Earth, and it’s up to Superman to see off the threat. Note that this movie is far more violent than previous instalments.
