The great part about the holiday movie season is not just the overwhelming amount of Oscar caliber films released at this time, but also the fact that the studios start advertising the big summer blockbusters before said films. Here is an example of what I mean.
Warner Brothers will be attaching a new trailer for The Man of Steel before showings of their big holiday film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey this weekend. However, if you can’t wait until Friday to see it, consider yourself lucky because it has hit the Web a few days early.
You can watch the full trailer below.
What do I think of it? Well, while FBOL editor-in-chief Rich Drees says he is excited by Zach Snyder’s take on the Superman legend, I have nagging doubts, none of which are set aside by this trailer. Because with everything that Snyder gets right–like the mythic and majestic nature of the character–there are things that raise red flags–like the completely and utterly out of character advice Pa Kent gives young Clark.
Hopefully, more hints as to what the film will really be like will come before it opens on June 14, 2013.
