Here’s the third – and perhaps the best – trailer for Zach Snyder’s Man of Steel. Of course, if there’s one thing we can count on, it’s that Snyder cuts a hell of a great trailer… But can the movie live up to it?
(And yes, of course someone has already remixed it with the John Williams score from the ’78 Superman.)
Under the cut, R.I.P.D., Byzantium and which superhero movie is releasing a teaser trailer next week.
…Look, I’m no comic expert, but is ‘kind of bleak and depressing’ really the direction you go with to sell Superman? Superman? Have you learned nothing? Superman: Still not Batman. Superman: Will never be Batman.
(There’s another version that features Kevin Costner’s Pa Kent. Still depressing.)
Just deal with it, boys. I thought April Fools had come early when I heard that Diablo Cody is adapting the Sweet Valley High series for the big screen. (It is indeed for real. There goes one of my jokes for next year.) Of course, the reaction has beenmixed. And we can take solace in the fact that Cody is keeping the series in its proper time period – the 80′s. In any case, it’s only Sweet Valley High, and they’ve never exactly been classic anything.
Mark Hamill is not in Zombieland. Because really, once one has spoofed their most famous role in the form of a character called the Cocknocker, everything else in that vein is just kind of downhill.
Stephanie Meyer’s other property. Her science fiction novel, The Host, will be adapted by Gattaca’s Andrew Niccol.
Remakes rearing their ugly heads.Highlander and He-Man not as dead as we thought. DAMN IT. But at least we can be grateful for one thing:
My eyes! My eyes! io9 unearthed some a test shot of Nicolas Cage from the late 90′s Superman movie that never got made, and it’s every bit as awful as you might expect.
At least it’s more respectable than Twilight: Diana Gabaldon’s wildly popular time-travel romance series Outlander has been optioned by Essential Films, with Braveheart’s Randall Wallace on script. This is great news… For my mother!
A federal judge ruled Wednesday that they are entitled to a part of the copyright on the character that Siegel co-created. Time Warner, the parent company of D.C. Comics, may owe the heirs for use of the character since 1999. The ruling, if upheld, will no doubt complicate matters for a Superman Returns sequel and Justice League film.
