It’s been a busy day for trailers hasn’t it? Well, this is the fourth official trailer for the upcoming Man of Steel film, released upon this world on June 14. Entitled “Fate of Your Planet”, the 1:47 second trailer ups the ante by showcasing the size of the threat that Superman – and the earth – must face. Zod, played by Michael Shannon, is indeed meancing. Destruction abounds. Kryptonian supermen and superwomen run rampant. Millions will die. And are those laser beams shooting out of Supe’s eyes?!?
Can anticipation for this assured summer blockbuster get any more frenzied? You bet it can!
Watch the trailer and then let us know what you think!
This trailer seems to have everything you could possibly want in a Superman film: slices of Americana, high action, super-speed flying, Kryptonian lore, a viable villain, and…punching! YES!
So now, with a little more context, has Zach Snyder hit Man of Steel out of the park?
The now-famous question near the end of the trailer is asked of mankind – but we here at Biff Bam Pop! ask it of you: what do you think?
Your summer blockbusters not coming quick enough? Here’s the second official Star Trek Into Darkness trailer, playing before Oz the Great and Powerful in most theaters:
Oh wow. They are specifically dodging the identity of the villain, but “by now you’ve all heard about what happened in London,” and “he’s a fugitive and” Kirk wants “to take him out.” What do you folks think?
All I know is I can’t wait for May 17th! “Punch it!”
I’ve been pretty upfront about my unabashed admiration of the work of Rob Zombie, most recently with my review of The Lords of Salem, which premiered last September at the Toronto International Film Festival. The movie is set to hit theatres April 19th, which gives everyone lots of time to digest this trailer for the film, which just dropped in the last hour.
Believe me when I tell you, though, that no trailer is going to prepare an audience for The Lords of Salem. While I firmly believe it’s Zombie’s best and most accomplished, it is also his most brutal and hard to define. To call it a horror film is way too simplistic – this is a tour de force, a magnum opus – it’s Rob Zombie unleashed. Literally. I can’t wait to see it again.
Check out the trailer and start counting the days until The Lords come-a-calling. And if you want a further taste, revisit our interview with star Dee Wallace, who have us a some insight into the film last summer.
