I’m not really one to post a lot of trailers but every once in a while I watch one that gives me goosebumps and instills within me a need to share it…even though every site on the web is posting it too. That’s exactly how I felt when I watched the (supposedly) final trailer for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. The first teasers that were released back in July with the same footage shown in each, with one being narrated by Russell Crowe as Jor-El, and the other by Kevin Costner as Jonathan Kent, left me all tingly. The first full length trailer that was released back in December made me excited, but angry that I had to wait another six months to see the final product. Now with this latest trailer, the film’s release date is a short two months away and it can’t get here soon enough.
Back in August I think it was, Warner Brothers released two versions of the same teaser trailer for Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel. One was voiced by Kevin Costner, who plays Jonathan Kent, and the other was voiced by Russell Crowe, who plays Jor ‘El. They were very short (hence being a teaser) and didn’t show much at all. Today, however, we get a full length trailer that shows what we can expect from the upcoming reboot of the Superman franchise.
I hate teasers. Especially when they’re released 85 years before the movie is due to hit theaters. Ok, so that’s an exaggeration, but still….this film is still over 10 months away. To make it easy, we’ll just say a year. Anyway, with the release of The Dark Knight Rises came not one, but two new teasers for the highly anticipated return of Superman. The Man of Steel teasers do just that….they tease. You don’t see a whole lot aside from Clark working on a crab boat, and a little boy running through a field with a make-shift cape.
July 20th is getting closer and closer, which means that the third and final installment of Christopher Nolan’s Batman saga will come to a close. The third trailer was just released and after watching it three times, I’m still not quite sure how I feel about it. I’m probably one of the few who prefers Batman Begins, but I did love The Dark Knight. To give an example of how much I’m looking forward to TDKR, I drove 90 minutes to see Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol on IMAX just so I could see the six minutes of TDKR footage that was attached. It was worth it even if I couldn’t understand what the hell Bane was saying. But that’s all besides the point.
