Fark the haters.  This looks awesome.
 
2013-04-16 11:54:30 PM  
My only worry is the movie has the same pacing as the trailer. It was 2 minutes of origin, then 1 minute of explosions everywhere. But the explosions part did look badass.

Ohh and the "It's not an 'S', on my world it means 'hope'" was pretty corny. You grew up in Kansas Clark, it's an S and you know it. Embrace your superiority.

"They'll kill him."

"...How?"
 
2013-04-17 12:04:24 AM  
"Holy crap" isn't the phrase that does this justice.  That looks incredible.

Mentat: Fark the haters.  This looks awesome.


THIS.  Damn - I rarely go to the movies, and I've seen two trailers today that make me really REALLY want to see the movie.  And I live in a city that doesn't seem to have a theater that runs anything on its US opening day.

Love that line, I'll be seeing this opening day.

It looks good, but I hope there's more to it than another recounting of his origin story, lots of explosions and Zod.

I really don't want to see another 90 minutes devoted to telling a story that we all already know by heart.

Nice religious messages in there.
It will do well at the box office.
 
2013-04-17 01:53:30 AM  
I've purposely avoided seeing anything about this movie, but I see we have two Robin Hoods in it playing Kal-El's biological and adoptive fathers, one of which hasn't been in a movie this big in a couple of decades.  Oh sure he's made movies with a nearly $200 million budget before, but they've never been successful.

Having said that, I may consider watching this.

I can't say I plan on rushing to the theater to see it, but I hope it's good so I can watch it on netflix later on.

Brings a new meaning to the phrase: Kneel Before Zod!

It's like seeing a different "version" of Hamlet.  You know the story, but it's the interpretation of it that is important. I'm just curious if we are talking about a series that has a beginning-middle-end trilogy in mind.
 
2013-04-17 04:10:55 AM

Here's hoping the actual movie measures up.

Pretentious CGI crapfest. That was my take. Your mileage may vary.

I thought the symbol on his chest was like a family crest, after the late 70's movie.

But the xenophobia angle looks new, as far as Superman movies go.

From what I understand, the writers asked "What if we DID have an all  powerful alien land in our world?" The charted what they thought would be real-world consequences.

scottydoesntknow: Ohh and the "It's not an 'S', on my world it means 'hope'" was pretty corny.


And I don't even think that's right. I thought it was just his family crest/seal/heraldry, which by coincidence looked like an ornate 'S'.
 
2013-04-17 06:07:39 AM  
Looks great. And no doubt it'll be better than the piece-of-crap Superman they made last time.

But please, for the love of Zod, we really need some sort of farking moratorium on farking origin farking stories.

Why?  Consider that for a lot of people, this will be their first Superman movie.  For a lot of people, it will be their first exposure to a Superman story of any kind.  Just because you have read all the comics, seen all the movies and know all about him, doesn't mean no movies should ever again address the basics.

When the latest version of "Pride and Prejudice" with Kiera Knightley was released, did you groan to yourself, "This story again?"  I know I did.  Then I saw the movie, and it was such a fine interpretation that it was like seeing it for the first time all over again.  It's not the number of repetitions that matter, or else no one would ever watch another adaptation of "Romeo and Juliet" or "Grease" ever again.  It's the quality that matters.  A timeless story like Superman's origin deserves to be told as many times as people can make quality adaptations out of it, no more and no less.

They've been doing that for years in the comics, actually (since 2003-04ish?).  It's meant to be the coat of arms for the house of El as well as "hope".  So I mean hey, at least they brought that over from the comics and didn't just make it up now.
 
2013-04-17 06:24:27 AM  
Well at least he's fighting proper supervillians this time thank god.

But agree with a lot of you. Not the damn origin story AGAIN?!
 
2013-04-17 06:38:44 AM  
Looks good actually. I always felt like supe was a shiat super hero but even he deserves better movies than we have seen in the past.
 
2013-04-17 06:51:10 AM  
They said they wanted to distance themselves from the Richard Donner movies, but they're still going with the messiah angle.  At least he seems a little more down-to-earth (he was practically Alien Jesus in the first movie).

Well, it's not "Winter is Coming" but...

It looks like a good movie, but claiming this will be a lot of people's first exposure to the Superman story is a leap. Between the older movies and the cartoons that have aired on TV for more than half a century, there aren't many people over age 10 that don't know at least the basics.

Constantly re-booting franchises like this is just studios admitting they are out of ideas. Did we really need a Spider-Man origin story 10 years after the last origin story was told?

I guess you will be first in line in 2016 for "Batman Begins, Again."
 
2013-04-17 07:08:01 AM  
I guess if you're going with the origin story, go deep, as it looks like they've done here. I'm also getting a "Zod engineered the destruction of Krypton" vibe so that seems like a new twist on the old tale. I feel better about it now that I've seen this trailer though it does look a little ponderous. Hopefully they've balanced that with some 'splosions.*

And Supes seems like more of a Moses story than a Jesus story to me.

It's not that the studios are out of ideas, It's just that they have hit on a formula that increases how much money a good idea can make.  So instead of just continuing to make Superman movies and ignoring the crappy origin story they did a few years ago, they are choosing to re-make the origin story to set up the next two films that are already green-lit and coming down the pipe behind it.  The trilogy formula at a glance seems to be profitable for the studios and the logical place to start a trilogy with an already exisitng story or character is at the beginning.

The difference is that there aren't a thousand other Romeo stories waiting to be told which are put aside each and every farking time so that we can hear about Juliet yet again.


/and bull.shiat. is this the first exposure to a Superman story for a signficant number of the people who are going to pay to see this movie

//and so what if it were? watch one of the existing origin stories if your interest is piqued; we don't reset to the first episode of a series every time someone new starts watching

Well, the last attempt at Superman sucked, and frankly they've sucked since Superman III.  Spiderman, we all know, should have been called "Spiderman - Rights Retention."

The Batman movies got it right.  People will nitpick, but that was hands down the best film version of that character we'll ever see.  The tone, the script, the direction, and the cast were as close to perfect as we'll get.

/Not saying they won't do it, god knows there's a Justice League franchise to launch, I'm just saying I don't know who will have the balls to take it on after Nolan.
 
2013-04-17 09:04:31 AM  
We didn't need to see the Batman origin again, and Batman Begins was great.  If this is done well, I'm fine with it, regardless of if it was the story I'd have picked.  Quit whining.

The comics answer that for you. He uses his laser eyes and a mirror to reflect it and burn off the hairs.
