That is a much better version. Seeing these fan made trailers the last few years, and posters, that are often better than the official thing has me wondering just what qualifications it takes to get hired by these outfits.

That was by far the best version we've seen yet.
It's kinda sad that the amateurs have started doing a better job promoting movies than the professionals.

The autofocus fail makes it unwatchable, so it can't be the best, automatically.

I think what we mean but I'll say me in particular, means the amateur fan version blends the voiceover dialogue + footage together to form a tighter narrative and tone for the film.

Yeah, since they had to blend stuff off a screen with the officially released stuff it is bad on a technical level, but artistically it's my favorite. It seems to me at least, that it gives us the best feel of what the movie will be like.

Despite some quality problems it does give me a good indication of the look, feela nd tone of the movie and so far it is meeting my high expectations.

Clearly you gotta know someone.

In the Biblical sense of the term.

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

This just makes me want to see more. I wonder when we're going to see those Entertainment Weekly photo shoot results that were done a couple of months ago? Costner, Adams, and Cavil were all present for them. I would have thought they would have come out with the issue coinciding with "The Dark Knight Rises" release but I haven't seen anything yet.

I have a feeling 10 years from now we'll all look back and cringe at how goofy those big red shorts looked. It's just gonna take time for some people to adjust.
The trunks will be back within a year.
Looking like - not.

"What I can say is that it's a modernisation of the character and a very realistic view of one, obviously, very fantastic individual," Cavill said.
"It's an unreal situation, but it's approached from a very practical viewpoint. We wanted to make the character easier to identify with."

Cavill is aware of how much pressure is currently on his super shoulders. "It’s important to do the role justice. There are a lot of people relying on me to do this well.
"I gladly accept that responsibility, and it’s a great one to have because it’s a wonderful opportunity.
"I don't let the pressures get to me because that's going to hinder my performance and, therefore, let people down. So I choose to ignore the pressure side of it and focus on doing justice to Superman."

Re: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Yeah he's not really saying anything new. It must be frustrating when asked by reporters about a role that no one will see for another year and that's wrapped in secrecy. You're basically limited with what you can talk about. I continue to get a "Batman Begins" vibe from this film though. Everything about how they seem to be handling the characters and Clark's "journey" seems like they're using the same story structure, which is fine by me and something that I had a haunch they would do.

I want another trailer already.
