I was blown away when I saw the latest preview for the upcoming film Man of Steel. But what’s even more amazing is this homemade remake of the trailer.
Filmed using only an iPhone with practically the same shots as the original, this is truly the work of talented and hardcore fans of Superman.
(This kinda reminds me of the Snuggie Countdown video.)
The new official trailer for Man of Steel showcases a darker, gloomier version of your kind-hearted hero Superman, as he grapples with the possibility that the world might reject his unique alien powers. Henry Cavill (that hottie from The Tudors) stars as Clark Kent while Amy Adams is Louis Lane.
The trailer features flashbacks from Clark’s youth, including when his school bus crashed into water. He saves the nearly drowning students, however, his father disapproves of his actions and encourages him to hide his secret, even at the risk of others. Later, a fully cloaked and grown up Clark remembers haunting advice from his father: ”My father believed that if the world found out who I really was, they would reject me. He was convinced that the world wasn’t ready.”
Today Superman is seen as morally sound and idealistic with a strong sense of justice, however, he was actually rougher and more aggressive in the original comics by Siegel and Shuster.
I’m crossing my fingers the film will redeem the wreck that was 2006′s Superman Returns. Another thing working in its favour is that The Dark Knight’s Christopher Nolan is a producer.
The movie will be on screens starting June 14. Will you see it?
