One thing is certain, the progression of the trailers for the pole holding up summer movie season, otherwise known as Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, has been excellent. Kudos to whomever is running that particular show in the Warner Bros. marketing department. Each trailer has shown us just a little bit more each time, at every turn succeeding in whetting our appetites. As someone who has not been high on this project since the beginning, the footage progression I’ve seen in the trailers has brought me around. Now I’m not embarrassed to say that I’m excited about next weekend. You might be, as well, once you get a look at this epic final trailer.
Watch the trailer below:
The trailer, found via /Film, isn’t so much an official trailer release as it is a Nokia commercial (notice the spotlight on the Nokia phone placed not-so-elegantly into the film). That said, it paints a much better picture of the scope and speed of the action Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan are trying to deliver. Gone is the slow-motion orgy one would expect from the director of 300, in comes breakneck action beats and thunderous Superman on Zod action. Yeah, that’ll do.
As we learned with our 10 Must See Movies of June 2013 list, this month has plenty to offer. While that plenty includes a number of interesting smaller movies, Man of Steel stands alone among the titans of summer, especially with all the question marks around World War Z. In the battle for your summer movie money, it’s always nice to be sure. This trailer should do much to help sure up that decision.
Man of Steel is in theaters June 14. The official synopsis is below.
In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question ‘Why am I here?’ Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.
