‘Man of Steel’ HD Trailer

Posted: July 21, 2012 in Movies

Warner Bros. have released the full high definition trailer to next summer’s blockbuster, Man of Steel, from director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) and producer Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception).  The film’s teaser trailer was shown before screenings of Warner Bros. new film The Dark Knight Rises, but this full fledged trailer delves deeper into who Superman is and where he comes from.

The trailer is narrated by Superman’s father Jor-El (Russell Crowe) and gives us a glimpse of Superman’s younger years and his adopted parents, Jonathan and Martha Kent (played by Kevin Costner and Diane Lane – yes, Diane Lane is now old enough to play Superman’s mom).  The trailer really stands out to me because of the music that plays throughout and Russell Crowe’s voice always gives me the chills.

Zack Snyder has had a pretty hit and miss career thus far with his standout film being 300 and having pretty good success with Watchmen, but he’s also directed garbage such as Sucker Punch.  For the most part however Snyder has a pretty stellar record with narrative action titles, so there is a good feeling that Man of Steel will deliver, especially considering Christopher Nolan is over-seeing the project and David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy) writing the script.

The film is out summer 2013.
