AN EPIC NEW TRAILER HAS ARRIVED… BUT I CAN’T ALLOW MYSELF TO PRESS PLAY
The marketing team behind Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel has done a remarkable job selling the film to audiences. They sold me after the teaser trailer was released. Actually, I was probably on board the moment they announced the keys to the franchise were handed to Christopher Nolan.
Little by little, they released epic posters, astonishing images and incredible trailers. Indeed, Superman is in good hands and I can’t wait for his return to the big screen.
THE BEST SUPERMAN MOVIE EVER?
Time will tell if the latest and easily the most ambitious Superman movie will take it’s place alongside the best superhero movies of all time. I’m willing to bet it will but something funny happened when they released the latest and presumably final trailer.
I couldn’t bring myself to watch it! I’ve analyzed nearly every Man of Steel trailer they’ve released thus far yet I couldn’t press play.
Honestly, I’m already excited enough for this movie and this new trailer is apparently action packed…
I DON’T NEED TO SEE ANYTHING MORE.. BRING ON THE MOVIE
A while back, I wrote about how major movie villains are revealed in the social media age. How much information is too much? Star Trek Into Darkness did a wonderful job disguising a major twist involving the villain. It was nice to see some information held back.
In regards to Man of Steel, the first 3 trailers did a phenomenal job of showing off the film without giving too much away. (Including the villainous General Zod) I think that’s why I’m avoiding the fourth trailer. This is my chance to step back from the marketing and simply wait for the film to come out. Still, it’s very difficult to avoid this new trailer especially when my favorite sites raved about it:
“We all thought there was no way a trailer could top the last one director Zack Snyder provided us for Man of Steel. At three minutes, even its length was epic. And the action it showed was pure, ass-kicking Superman. The latest trailer (number four, if you count the teasers as one) is shorter than the previous one but, somehow jam-packed with even more spectacle.” (/FILM)
“While previous trailers focused on the coming-of-age tale of a Kryptonian stranded on Earth and the love between a son and his father, this new cut is chock full of dread, evidenced by Superman drowning in a mountain of skulls.” (Collider)
“Zod narrates this newest trailer, full of never before seen footage. One feeling I get from watching it is that Zod is a very real threat, which is great because Superman is going to kick his ass.” (Geek Tyrant)
“If anything, this trailer puts to rest any doubts that Man of Steel will be anything other than epic. Unlike some previous Superman movies, it looks as if the world’s greatest superhero will be taking on a threat that’s on a scale commensurate with his powers.” (Screen Rant)
I wake up ever morning, read movie news and watch the latest trailers. Not pressing play is hard but we’re less than a month away from what looks like an unforgettable blockbuster event. A Superman movie unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. Man of Steel!
