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.
It’s been an odd week what with the loss of Steve Jobs and all. The film industry also lost Charles Napier this week which is also a bummer. I saw him in person once in a diner in Tahoe and he looked cranky. Like turbo cranky. It was early though and perhaps he hadn’t had his coffee yet. Regardless, he was one of those great character actors that even if you didn’t know his name, you’d know him when you saw him. So RIP to both Charles and Steve. Aside from that, the new show American Horror Story premiered and you can read my review / recap here. Now it’s Friday and it’s time for this week’s Goodie Wrap.
