If the trailers are any indication - this movie makes Batman Begins look like a joke.

Wait did Jor El speak to his adult son in that trailer? I hope it's a dream sequence or hologram, because that would be a major change to the character's story. One i'm not sure would sit well with me.

I'm almost sure it is hologram or projection, no way his parents survives out of Krypton. We have a week to find out if I am wrong though. I can't fucking wait!

Absolutely glorious. No movie has ever inspired such hopes in me.

For sure Jor-El is some sort of projection in the Fortress (or the ship discovered under the ice.)

Man of Steel almost recoups budget before it's even released
Commercial deals mean that it's already made $170m


Though it might upset Tony Stark, 'Man of Steel' could end up being the major blockbuster of 2013, and it's already making money before it's out.

According to figures from the Hollywood Reporter, the Superman reboot has already made $170 million (£109 million) in commercial deals and endorsements.

Considering its production budget of a reported $225 million (£144 million), it sounds like Zach Snyder's film is going to be quite the payday for Warner Bros once it's released next week.

Among the brands wanting a slice of Supes are the likes of Wal-Mart, Gillette, Kellogg's, Chrysler, Nokia, Hershey's, Converse and famed US department store Sears.

And that's without the toy manufacturers buying in rights, which so far include Mattel, Fisher Price and Lego.

In all, it's said to have 100 merchandising partners.

Animated film 'The Lorax' was the previous title winner, with 70 companies paying out for rights.

Meanwhile, the figure already hauled in by 'Man of Steel' beats that of 'The Dark Knight Rises', which made $150 million (£96 million) in third party deals.

However, 'Man of Steel' is expected to extend its commercial lead still, with more 'international partners' soon to be coming on board.

It's thought that the film's more wholesome take on its subject matter has been more appealing to major brands than Christopher Nolan's darker world of Batman.

And such is the popularity of the character, the production has even snared the US National Guard to help in promoting it.

The film is released in the UK on 14 June.

I know I'm going to hate this movie. I wish I could like it, but it's inevitable. I'm not 12 years old anymore.

I'm excited for this movie but it doesn't really need more hype.

Well I hadn't seen any negative reviews yet. The usual sources I read have been extremely positive.
post #718 of 847
Some of those RT review are confusing. One critic says the film has no emotion then another says it has too much. lol8[1].gif

By the reviews, it seems that any Superman film will simply be a no win with the critics, at least not unanimously. The original Reeves were just too embedded with most people I think, it might be too difficult for them to get past that. A different take is simply not going to work for them I guess, I am trying to avoid the complete reviews to avoid spoilers but some complaints seems insane. I guess I'll find out first hand tomorrow night.


Also, IM3 got 78% and I really think it should be much worse than that even if I had no idea who Mandarin is, the movie just wasn't that good. And then SR got 76% while MoS is hovering at 66%? I mean really? I haven't seen the film but it is hard to imagine it being worse than SR (coming from a guy who actually, kind of, sort liked SR).

By it's nature Superman is just a hard adaptation to pull off well, I'm not sure how much it really has to do with Reeves being embedded. At this point I think people just want something with more action and less kryptonite continents than Superman returns.

Keep in mind MOS has only 59 reviews up while Iron Man 3 has 264, so the rating could change a lot
post #720 of 847
True the ratings could change but this is still a good indication of where it will stay at. TDKR pretty much stayed at 90% the whole time.


Reeves definitely has an attachment to most who grew up with his Superman films, he is the quintessential Superman/Clark Kent to most. It is also the main reason Routh is a spitting image of Reeves in SR, people just has that image on their head. Cavill is completely different, not just in acting, emotion but also in build. Some reviews that gave the film a negative already said Supermans charm was missing and that is mostly Reeves part right there, Superman isn't exactly Bruce Wayne trying to be a playboy but people has grown accustomed of that.
