MAN OF STEEL TRAILER GOES ALL IN ON MALICK, LETS LOOSE THE ACTION

I loved it.

 

I will fashion an old pair of jeans I have into jorts. The haters can then proceed to eat my jorts.

I'm with you, Stelios. In particular, the little teensy whiff we get of Cavill's performance, like the bit of dialogue at the end, makes me believe the guy has a real chance to completely own the part.

Yeah im kind of in love with that......as well as Amy Adams. Amy Adams is fucking Lois Lane! I can't believe that information slipped by me.

Yup, count me in. With 2 nitpicky exceptions:

1: CGI cape and Supes. Is it that hard to find a big fan, if you want that billowing look? And Reeve's real flyby was much better.

2: The trailer played well, but would have been better with THIN RED LINE SCORE from the Comicon trailer.

It looks like everything I want to see out of this character. FUCKING. PSYCHED.

post #7 of 150

Dug it..  Dug it a lot, actually.  

post #8 of 150

Love love love Clark saving the school bus, doing good before he wears the suit.

post #9 of 150

And, hey, there's Toby Ziegler! I didn't know Richard Schiff was in this!

 

Where I come from, we call that a bonus.

post #10 of 150

Count me in as a big fan.  I watched in my phone, so weird CG wasn't too noticeable.

Pretty much my reaction. I remain hopeful and fairly excited.

Agreed!

 

Wow. It's been a while since I've seen such positivity on CHUD toward a trailer.

 

Is Gabe T on a cigarette break at the moment?

I remember back in the 90's, when I imagined an epic superhero story that was all hushed mythic awe, scored to new-agey Enya sounding music.  Then I realized that was a dumb idea.

post #14 of 150

I really liked that. The first trailer led to me making a lot of snarky "Cape Of Life" jokes, but I thought this was excellent. I'll always be skeptical of Snyder, but I'm much more enthused about this than I was previously.

Those of you who thought Bailey might be Zack Snyder can cross that theory off your lists.

Bailey swoops in!

post #17 of 150

I've actually liked all Zack Snyder's movies to varying degrees so far, which is more than I can say for most people.  I'm reasonably sure I'll like this one too.

post #18 of 150

I can't say that. I really dig 300, unashamedly. WATCHMEN was an interesting failure, IMNSHO, with some great parts but not a cohesive whole. SUCKER PUNCH has amazing visuals but is pure ass as far actual story and content go.

 

But if WB and Nolan helped guide Snyder to better filmmaking, I think we're in for a treat.

post #19 of 150

Loved this. Can't wait to see more than a few frames of Shannon. 

post #20 of 150
That kind of blew me away, I have to say. Serious goosebumps. And I watched it on an iPhone, on a bus.
post #21 of 150

Michael Shannon as Zod looks awesome in the quick little blink and you missed it shot..  Very much looking forward to Shannon's brand of annoyed menace in that role.

MAN ON FIRE. That's what the music is from.
post #23 of 150

The song is Elegy by Lisa Gerrard, from the album Immortal Memory.

No big horn
No villain monologue

Looks splendid im in.
post #25 of 150
Oh. It sounded like the end of MAN ON FIRE, when Denzel meets Dakota Fanning on the bridge and then is dying in the car.
post #26 of 150

Now there's a Superman. Looking forward to him doing things beyond lifting heavy objects in this. It looks like we'll be able to finally leave the Donner version behind.

post #27 of 150

Heh, I think Snyder's best movie BY FAR, is Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole.  Wish he'd do more animated features.

Agreed.  I want to see him punch stuff.  HARD.

It is the same song, you're correct. Tony had Gerrard in his record shelf too.

Why do you say that?

 

Trailer got me geeking out for Superman for the first time in a long while. However, the WATCHMEN gave me a similar reaction, and we know how that turned out.

post #31 of 150

Is there a chance Metropolis Kent has been dropped, at least for the first movie? I've seen no hint, in this trailer or in previous synopses and set photos, that Cavill will wear glasses or have to act clumsy.

 

Maybe he's Clark the first half, and Superman the second half, without a secret identity per se.

The trailer seems to say that he is considering or wrestling with being "open" about being Supes. 

post #33 of 150

There's just always been this disconnect with me when it comes to Smallville Clark vs. Metropolis Clark. Villains like Zod and Brainiac usually challenge Superman to embrace his alien heritage over being human, but it's always at a point in his life when "being human" means acting like someone he is not as mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent.

 

I'd almost prefer him be Superman full time, only wearing civilian clothes when hanging out at the Kent farm, which is where the "real" Clark lives anyway.

The Comic Con trailer ended with him putting on his glasses.

Excuse me?

 

Anyway, fine trailer.  It did it's job.  Remaining neutral.  

post #37 of 150

Sounds like there's enough stuff in this movie for it to be three hours long. And, truthfully, if the whole film is of the same quality as this trailer, I hope it is.

Agreed.  Fishburne looks like too much work for him.

End of the film, perhaps?

 

By the way, I fucking love this trailer.

Whoa there little whipper snapper - let's not get too ahead of ourselves here.  Remember how great that first trailer for Singer's Superman was?  I believe it made many people (including myself) weepy.  What happened with the movie?  Watchman trailer was awesome.  Movie turned out to be, again?  And all those glorious Sucker Punch trailers.  Sigh.

 

This is a well done trailer.  I remain cautiously optimistic...or anything...about the movie.

I don't think Untitled was dismissing the Donner version, merely pointing out that this is the first live action Superman picture in over thirty years which is not set in Donner's universe. It'll be interesting to see what the fresh approach brings (although I'll certainly mourn the absence of the iconic theme tune if we lose it).

 

EDIT: Oh wait. That's not what you were protesting about. ignore me!

I thought WATCHMEN was well regarded here. I loved it. I know Nick and Stel liked it.

I haven't done a headcount, but I think many people agree time hasn't been kind to it. I really dug it when I saw it theatrically, but I don't think it holds up on subsequent viewings. YMMV, of course.

post #44 of 150

I still love WATCHMEN, warts and all.  The only thing I've soured on is Matthew Goode as Ozy, but he doesn't kill the film for me.

post #45 of 150

*checks*

 

Nope, still love WATCHMEN.

 

Trailer looks good.  Cautious optimism engaged.

What made that trailer good had nothing to do with Singer's Superman, and I think most realized that immediately.  It was as much a trailer for the Donner film as it was for Returns, and without the Williams/Brando combo it would have evoked zero nostalgia and fallen flat.  I'd actually go so far as to say that Singer's visuals in that trailer do as much harm as they do good as there's really only couple shots among the half dozen used that feel justified being paired with that audio track and score.

Yup. Exactly. I love Watchmen. Goofy music and all. I just wish Fassbender was a thing then so he could be Veidt.

post #48 of 150

Yeah, I didn't mean to throw the Donner version in the trash or anything. Just that it has been seen as the iconic version of Superman for a newish take. I was maybe a bit to cavalier in tossing Superman 1 and 2 aside but they just don't hold up to well with me. It will be nice having a Superman movie that doesn't feel like it has to be connected to them. A lot of new takes on the character have been written since the 70s and the movies should reflect that. It's really great that All Star Superman and Birthright will play an influence in this.

post #49 of 150
Snyder is king of the trailers if you ask me, and this seems to be no different. Been a long time since a trailer has grabbed me like this. Looks fantastic.
post #50 of 150

I already hate the characterization of Pa Kent in this. 'What was I supposed to do, let them die? Maybe...'  NO. That is not what Pa Kent would ever say. He would never question the rightness of the decision to put the lives of others before your own.
