Second Trailer of Man of Steel [Trailer Review]

Man of Steel - Superman Logo

The second trailer from Warner Bro’s Superman re-reboot Man Of Steel has landed. After the pretty vague first teaser, this one has got more meat, and plenty of stuff to be discussed. We’ll get to the specific details, with the screenshots and even GIFs. There’s a lot of material to digest here, explosions, cape flutter, and Lois Lane. The new Man of Steel (MoS) trailer has totally grabbed my attention.

First and foremost, this is the only Superman movie with no Superman in the title. And the trailer starts with an image of a submerged Kal-el, sporting a beard. This image almost gives a Nolan reboot feel to the series, darker, grittier and moody are instant words that pop-out when you see this version of Superman. Although there is no reason for us to get concerned about this, but I just hope the overall tone of MoS isn’t all gloomy and serious. A little fun isn’t a bad thing as we’ve seen from the Avengers.

Thoughts on the Man of Steel Teaser [Trailer Review]

Man of Steel Superman Logo

The first teaser trailer of Zack Snyder’s Superman movie – Man of Steel, was first shown at The Dark Knight Rises screenings. It is indeed a smart move on the part of Warner Brothers to try and create as much hype, as early as possible (given that this movie does not get released until summer 2013). And what better spot to choose than the most awaited movie of 2012. In the movie theatre where I was watching TDKR, the audience seemed to have been left underwhelmed and let down by this initial teaser.

The audience did clap at the end with the money shot of Superman’s sonic-boom shot. And isn’t the music used in the trailer from LOTR? (The one when Gandalf dies) Yes, there is lots more to come and this is only the first teaser. I have already heard a lot of good things about the Comic Con footage, and here’s hoping that the next teaser shows us some more of that.

I have seen it a few times myself, and here are a few thoughts [after the jump]

New Trailer for The Amazing Spiderman is Bloody Brilliant [Review]

The Amazing Spiderman Trailer GIF - Andrew Garfield

The first teaser trailer was a big disappointment, as the only bit of Spidey footage we got, was a reflection on a skyscraper’s glass window. With Sony hell-bent on correcting that first mistake, the newly released Amazing Spiderman trailer, looks like a step in the right direction. The trailer is here, embedded after the jump. And I’ve got a few good things to say about it as well.

The New Phantom Menace Trailer Is Just Bloody Awful [Star Wars]

Darth Maul - Phantom Menace
The early poster/teasers of Phantom Menace re-release got me all excited. I almost forgot how disappointed I was when I saw it the first time. There was a reason why I booked my ticket early for the 3D screening of The Phantom Menace, which is out this week. And after having seen the latest trailer of Star Wars Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, I am finding it hard to remember that reason. To put it simply, it is just awful, almost on the level of a Hanna Montana TV advert for Disney Channel. But wait, I am NOT going to stop at just that. Hit the jump, and find out ..
