This, the longest and most likely last trailer before Zack Snyder’s Superman reboot hits theaters, is also the most revealing with an extended look at the fall of krypton, Russell Crowe’s Jor-Ell sending baby Kal-El to earth, Clark’s journey from boy to Superman, the Fortress of Solitude, more of Amy Adam’s Lois lane, Michael Shannon’s Zod and plenty of big set piece snippets.
“What Does the S stand for?”
There are early reports of great buzz at Warners which is promising and the dream team of Christopher Nolan and Zack Snyder look set to deliver one of the big films of the year.
Personally I am a little disappointed that Snyder’s take seems to be somewhat muted compared to his usual bombastic style. I know he has plenty of detractors but Snyder’s first 3 films are all well made, visually gorgeous and utterly unique. I was hoping when I first he heard that he had signed for the project that we could finally see a truly epic Superman. Here’s hoping the film is the best of both worlds: Nolan’s depth and intelligence and Snyder’s muscular visual prowess.
In terms of the trailer itself it’s interesting to see how the trailer tone shifts form the Terrence Malick style photography that we have already seen in earlier teasers to the full on CG heavy action that of course wouldn’t have been available for earlier previews.
The music is also a bold departure from the usual “BRMMMMs!” that have become the sound track ever since Nolan’s masterful Inception teaser. Instead we get with a rousing score which I assume is from Hans Zimmer’s score.
Zack Snyder & Christopher Nolan are certainly no amateurs when it comes to overseeing excellent trailers and choosing the right music. The trailers fro 300 and Watchmen benefited greatly from their distinctive Nine Inch Nails and Smashing Pumpkins soundtracks.
Man of Steel is Produced & Distributed by Warner Brothers, DC Entertainment, Legendary & Syncopy and is released worldwide from 13 June 2013.
