Honestly, one of the best trailers of the year are The Man of Steel teaser trailers. I remember seeing it for the first time before The Dark Knight Rises, and still thinking about it when TDKR started. I am a bit late on posting this, but I just watched the first full trailer for Man of Steel tonight. I blasted the sound on my parents’ big flat screen TV and watched it in HD. I got goosebumps all over as it started playing.
I thought the teasers were good, but they built on that same feeling and tone for the full trailer. It confirms that this will be more along the lines of The Dark Knight films and much less like Thor, Iron Man, etc. I like the serious, dark approach to the Superman franchise. It bodes well for the actors, director, and everyone else involved. While I can certainly enjoy those comic book superhero films already mentioned (and I do), I like the more artistic approach that this one is going for. It may bode well in awards season, although the Golden Globes nominations came out today, and TDKR is not nominated.
My only immediate thought when seeing Henry Cavill floating in the water was a flashback to The Twilight Saga: New Moon. Very similar scenes. See, I can still bring it back to Twilight. I am losing my little bit of credibility very fast.
The music in the first half of the trailer is by Lisa Gerrard and Patrick Cassidy and it is called “Elegy.” The music from the second half is from Elizabeth: The Golden Age. The track is called “Storm” and is composed by Craig Armstrong.
In the trailer, you can see glimpses of almost all of the major actors involved in the film. Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Michael Shannon, Antje Traue, Russell Crowe, Harry Lennix, and Christopher Meloni are all in Man of Steel. Zack Snyder directed and David S. Goyer wrote the screenplay based on a story by Goyer and Christopher Nolan.
“Next summer, “Man of Steel” is coming to the big screen. The film is from director Zack Snyder and producers Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer & Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster and published by DC Comics.”
Man of Steel is in theatres June 14, 2013.
