Posted December 11, 2012 05:39 PM by Webmaster
Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have released a new international trailer for Zack Snyder's upcoming film Man of Steel (2013), starring Henry Cavill, Russell Crowe and Amy Adams. The film is slated for release beginning June 14, 2013 and will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
The film also stars three-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams (The Fighter) as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Oscar nominee Laurence Fishburne (What's Love Got to Do with It) as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent's adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Oscar nominee Diane Lane (Unfaithful) and Academy Award winner Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves).
Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), and Faora, Zod's evil partner, played by Antje Traue. Also from Superman's native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman's mother, played by Ayelet Zurer (Angels and Demons), and Superman's father, Jor-El, portrayed by Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
Rounding out the cast are Harry Lennix as U.S. military man General Swanwick, as well as Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy and Richard Schiff as Dr. Emil Hamilton.
Man of Steel is being produced by Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer and Nolan, based upon characters appearing in comic books published by DC Comics. Superman created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Thomas Tull, Lloyd Phillips and Jon Peters are serving as executive producers.
Zack Snyder's behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Amir Mokri (Transformers: Dark of the Moon); production designer Alex McDowell (Watchmen); editor David Brenner (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides); and multiple Academy Award-winning costume designer James Acheson (Restoration, the Spider-Man films) and costume designer Michael Wilkinson (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and 2, Watchmen, 300).
Looks better than the teaser from a few months back but I'm still not sold. Another re-telling of Superman's origin is not needed. And there's the fact that Donner's first Superman will always remain for me the Godfather of superhero movies. Still, I have enough curiosity to want to see more about this film in spite of the fact that Zack Snyder is directing and David S. Goyer wrote it, he's very much a hit and miss writer...
Stunning cinematography in that trailer, hope it holds up in the whole film. Glad after "Returns" its getting a total reboot. That scene of him flying in space with earth behind him, just incredible. Hope we finally get a worthwhile Superman movie! Day 1 in theaters for sure. It does give chills to you.
(I'm thinking Supermans origin journey will be interesting like Batman Begins, so I don't mind. But I know a lot of others won't agree)
Fade to black, fade to black, fade to black... and that pretentious Celtic caterwauling... very fucking lame. Added to which, Hack Snyder has never made a good movie. Flush this turd. I miss Brandon Routh.
@CandyStalker butthurt nerd is butthurt that this actually looks good. Yeah, Zack Snyder hasn't made a single good movie. He only did what few have accomplished, make a remake that a lot of fans of the original actually liked more than the original, and he only made an extremely entertaining war epic and he only gave fans of Watchmen a proper, accurate and long ass adaption which most actually loved. I'll be the first to admit that Zack Snyder isn't a great director. His films are either good or they're terrible, but when they are good, they're effing excellent. People can always tell from the trailers for his films which will be the good ones and which will be the awful ones. Regardless of HOW good Man of Steel is, I think it's safe to assume, this will at the very least be a very entertaining movie. Get over yourself.
