Another day, another set of new posters for comic book adaptations. Tuesday brings brand new looks at both Robert Schwentke‘s R.I.P.D. starring Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds as well as yet another banner for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams and Michael Shannon.
Both posters expand on previous ones, adding action and scope. In the case of R.I.P.D., that’s accomplished by adding a slew of new elements: vortexes, explosions, and hovering police cars. For Man of Steel, the task is simpler: pull back and fly away. Check out the posters below. Read More »

Many TV spots do little more than rearrange footage from a film’s primary trailers into 30-second bites. And that’s fine. But the Man of Steel TV spots have been giving up perhaps more new footage than usual, and this third spot has quite a grand scope packed into half a minute.
The capper is a shot of one very angry Superman (Henry Cavill) as he flies into action, but there are also some quick new shots of Michael Shannon as General Zod, and some action and effects bits that we haven’t seen before. All in all, it’s probably the most epic TV commercial that will be airing this month, so have a look below if you haven’t already seen it. Read More »
The latest trailer for Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel did a lot to convince people that the director of 300 and Watchmen was in fact the right choice for the film. The continuation of a certain tone from Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies doesn’t help, but Snyder’s casting choices — Kevin Costner, Russell Crowe, Michael Shannon, and Henry Cavill as Superman — are persuasive arguments that his sense of direction for Superman is steady. And then there’s the range of action seen in the trailer, which brings the character to life in a way that few expected.
Now there are a couple new bits of marketing that don’t quite push our perception of the film in the way that trailer did. As the header image above suggests, a new poster focuses very much on Superman and his power in flight. The TV spot, meanwhile, looks to his birth family, and gives the voiceover reigns to Russell Crowe as Jor-El to explain his son’s potential destiny on Earth. Read More »
Here’s the big reveal of all the secrets Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. have hidden within the new Superman film, Man of Steel. Days ago we saw a grainy video broadcast featuring the villain General Zod (Michael Shannon) and his demand for humanity to hand over Kal-El / Superman (Henry Cavill). Now this new trailer shows not only what happens when Zod’s plan doesn’t go off in quite the way he hopes, but who Superman is and what makes him tick. Thankfully, all of that results in a lot more action. Read More »

He’s coming. Superman is flying back to theaters on June 14 and the first TV commercial for Man of Steel aired Monday night. Basically a shorter version of the trailer that’s been online for a few months, Zack Snyder and the crew are being very stingy with new footage. There may be a shot or two in here but, either way, if you’re as excited for the film as we are, you’ll want to watch this. You might just get goosebumps. Read More »
We knew that the guiding principle behind Zack Snyder‘s new Superman revival Man of Steel was to make the alien superhero make sense in a modern era. And while we don’t know precisely how he and his actors and crew have accomplished this, but the first footage from the film does gieve some indication. We see Clark Kent and his alter-ego Superman (Henry Cavill) having what appears to be a crisis of conscience or morality, and doing some serious soul-searching.
New images from the film have hit the web, and while they don’t exactly pinpoint more details of Snyder’s approach, a couple of his accompanying comments are useful. Read More »
