In case you weren’t sold by the first, second, fifth, second to last, foreign language, or Taiwanese News Agency trailers, here is the final Man of Steel trailer to convince you to go see it when the film is finally released on June 14. You know, in case you choose not to go back and see The Internship for a fourth time, because you just can’t get enough of that zany Vince Vaughn-Owen Wilson bromance.
In this latest trailer, we get the full General Zod treatment as he’s all like, “Stop hiding, Kal El” and Superman is all, “Come on, Zod, everyone calls me Superman here”. And then Superman yells a bunch while Zod makes us puny humans pay for hiding the Man of Steel.
… That a creative production company made. Sorry, I hate when I run out of room in the title of the post and then people have to click on the link and read it just so I can finish saying that this is the opening title sequence for Man of Steel, as interpreted by the people at Will & Tale, who specialize in creative development and animation, among other things.
The video is pretty good for one of them fancy viral efforts that the kids are all talking about, even if it didn’t fool YouTube user “eckosboy” who totally called it “fake”. Haha, nothing gets by that “eckosboy”.
Ladies and gentlemen, bros and babes of all ages, welcome to the 2013 FilmDrunk Summer Movie Guide, your exclusive, ultimate and all-around life-changing directory to the summer’s biggest action-packed blockbusters, laugh-jammed piss-your-pants comedies, tear-jerking dramas and whatever crap that Adam Sandler made. Print this out and slap it up on your fridge with those magnet letters that spell out “penis” and don’t miss out on a single film experience between now and the end of September.
You may be asking, “Hey Burnsy, why now? Why not last week when GI Joe: Retaliation came out?” Because, a-hole, the summer movie season doesn’t ever begin until Michael-f*cking-Bay says it does, and with Pain and Gain hitting theaters – nay, theatres! – this Friday, Bay is telling us that it’s time to put on our adult diapers and prepare ourselves for the *explosion sound*.
Today brings us the longest trailer yet for Man of Steel, the Zack Snyder-directed, Christopher Nolan-produced Superman movie starring Amy Adams and Henry Cavill, with Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner as Superman’s adopted gay dads. Zack Snyder rightly got a lot of flak after Sucker Punch for his penchant for excessive slow motion and ridiculously over-stylized everything, but now that he’s making a Superman movie and not a weird, thickly-veiled allegory for child rape, all the epic affectations actually seem like they fit. This is… a pretty badass trailer. I kind of want Russell Crowe to narrate my life now. And if Michael Shannon manages to be half as scary as General Zod as he was as that Jew-drowning psychopath on Boardwalk Empire, this is going to be amazing and small children will pee their pants when they see it.
