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

It deserves to be double posted though! I'm honestly really excited. Here's the new poster which is okay...but I wish he was lower in frame.

Well he posted the YouTube version which I was thankful for since the player at Coming Soon seemed determined not to let me see it. But yeah, it does look stunning.

Although the shorter, quicker paced t.v. spots feel weird after watching those awesome trailers.

It is funny thinking that in this day and age, a Superman movie is the underdog film going up against the Marvel juggernaut.

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

I just noticed that Lawrence Fishburne is Perry White. If this movie ends with Clark waking up in the matrix to find out this was all fake, then this may not turn out to be the worst live action superman adaptation. Warner Brothers is the distributer for Man of Steel and the Matrix

I'd also give the scene from the older trailer were Jonathan Kent tells clark he should have let a bus full of children drown a pass if it turns out he said that because he's still actually the guy from Waterworld and he was right there to save the kids anyway, so Clark shouldn't have bothered

I will say that the music sounds good. Thats honestly the only good thing i've said about the movie (and don't expect any other good words). It doesn't sound like anything will become iconic like the old superman movie music (the Man of Steel composer is no John Williams) but it still sounds like it will be good.

^Well, it's a good thing you've made up your mind about the movie before seeing it.

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

Well, I haven't seen Transformers 3, but I saw 1 and 2 and I hated them, so I didn't watch it, yet I know its bad. If I hate The Dark Knight and Rises, then what are the chances I'll like The Dark Superman of Steel Rises? Almost everyone, from writers to producers, worked on the Nolan movies, which I despised. All the movie clips have horrible stuff in them (like Pa Kent telling Clark to let kids die), and it looks like the whole thing will be Superman brooding and otherwise being another Nolan "dark" "hero". There is a better chance of me growing wings than liking this movie.

I'm not trying to make anyone angry or start something, thats just my opinion. I've been trying to keep it in, but the closer the movie comes, the more I feel like posting about it. Still, I don't want to derail the thread. I don't like the movie, I think Nolan should be put away for crimes against humanity for his hack work, end of story.

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

We saw a planet explode in the trailer though.

I'm not sure where they're getting the idea that it might not be destroyed. Reading the snippet, perhaps Zod isn't aware that Krypton has been destroyed and this is why he decides to enact his plan on Earth.

Kid, there's a big difference between "bad" and "I didn't like it". Learn it. Or get a broader vocabulary. There's plenty of movies I don't like...that doesn't make them "bad", it makes them movies I don't like.

The exact same as any other movie that comes out.

Since it's abundantly clear that you don't know, let me help you: when movie trailers are put together, sometimes two parts of a scene (or different scenes) might be put together to make it seem like something happens in the movie one way, but in the actual movie, it happens a different way.

This is called "editing". And this "editing" is done in such a way for trailers and or previews for t.v. shows to generate interest or misdirect. For example, in the new Star Trek trailer, there's two shots of the Enterprise burning in orbit followed by a shot of a different ship crashing in the water. The intent is to make the viewer think that it's the Enterprise that is crashing thus generating excitement or interest.

You still with me?

So when Clark asks "What was I supposed to do...Let them die?" you don't know if Pa says something else completely in the movie. His "Maybe" might be the answer to something else completely but edited in the trailer in such a way in order to elicit a response from viewers.

Hey, let's have some fun....did it occur to you that Pa's response in the movie could be "Maybe" pause "No, of course not son, you did the right thing and I'm proud of you."

I'm gonna go with no.

A brooding hero is not considered a "dark" hero. Wolverine is a "dark" hero. The Punisher is a "dark" hero. The Superman we see in these trailers is nowhere near being a "dark" hero. In fact we really don't know what he's going to be like since we've seen less than three minutes of Henry Cavil's performance in a two hour movie.

It's probably best that you stick to cartoons or funny books for your superhero fix anyway.

There is a better chance of you growing wings than you ever approaching something with an open mind.

You cannot "like" or "dislike" anything you haven't seen.

Hate to break it to you kid, but Nolan has the respect of his peers. He's working in his chosen field and he's not only successful, he's crazy successful. When you reach even a tenth of that, get back to us.

Well, there is a brief shot (very brief as it's edited with another explosion) of a planet blowing up. Right here in fact:



This is at the 2:29 mark in trailer #3.



And really, does the lack of this even constitute a spoiler? If so, then I hope it never shows up in the current series because that just shows how cliche and predictable it is to have it.

THANK YOU.

It's exhausting to read all the reviews of a movie written by people who have only seen a few trailers and tv ads.
