Ouch. But that's nothing compared to the TWO MONTH-long wait that I had to endure for Green Lantern, a movie I was highly anticipating. It opened here in ****ing August, after half the globe had declared that it sucked. At that point I figured "Why stay away from reviews?" When I finally watched it, my expectations were at rock bottom. A lame experience all around.

What's weird is the first trailer they showed was... The Heat. The Heat? A Fox buddy cop comedy trailer in front of a Universal sci-fi drama? Odd. But no Man of Steel.
I got the Heat, too, with my showing of Oblivion.

I'm hoping to see the trailer again with IM3. I'm sure that crowd will be WAY MORE responsive to it than the Oblivion crowd.

Crossed fingers. I'd love to see the latest trailer on the big screen, and seeing it in front of another superhero movie with a generally like-minded crowd would be a plus.

I'm just thankful I got to see ANY MOS trailer in the theater, after my bad luck of not seeing any with TDKR, Hobbit, and Oz.

Scores like Iron Man and The Crow. I don't know how else to explain it I just mostly dislike hard rock or semi hard rock soundtracks.

There was this scene were in At Worlds End when Jack Sparrow and Elizabeth are walking on the beach trying to look cool and then some heavy rockish guitar queue comes in and I remember just hating it.

After Iron Man 3's false marketing and advertising, I'm really hoping Man of Steel destroys it both critically and at the box office. I know it's unlikely for MOS to beat it at the box office but a guy can dream .

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
The marketing promised to have the Mandarin in it. This was the IRON MAN VS. MANDARIN story that has been hyped up since the first Iron Man movie. Turned out that the Mandarin himself was just a drunk actor hired by Killian (Guy Pierce's character) to pose as a terrorist so that Killian could have his revenge on Tony for something Tony did to him many years ago.

Heck, apparently most of the iconic lines the Mandarin says in the trailer are not in the movie and are just there for shock value as well as some of the scenes from the trailer like the scene with a tattoo of Cap's shield on his neck.

The Weekend Warrior's 2013 Summer Box Office
http://www.comingsoon.net/news/inter....php?id=103553

Quote:
With so many big movies in May you'd think there isn't much left for the rest of summer, but there are two more comic book superhero movies picking up where Iron Man 3 leaves off with the Zack Snyder Superman movie Man of Steel (Warner Bros. – June 14) expected to be an enormous blockbuster as it introduces British actor Henry Cavill as Clark Kent aka Superman.

Warner Bros. really needs to get this franchise right this time after Bryan Singer's less-than-well-received Superman Returns, which still cracked $200 million but even moreso after the dud Green Lantern. Snyder may have one of the most Oscar-nominated casts in the history of superhero movies starting with Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent and Russell Crowe as Superman's birth father Jor-El. That's a lot of quality actors, a much higher caliber than any movies outside of Christopher Nolan's "Dark Knight” series, and there's going to be a lot of excitement from Superman fans from young to old. We would be shocked if this one doesn't open in the $90 million range and if it doesn't keep bringing in business over the rest of the month of June and July on its way to $300 million or even more, although it has quite a bit of competition in the weeks that follow.

I always laugh when people predict like 296 ... as if Warner Bros isn't going to do everything in their power to get that to 300 if it's that close, like they did with The Hobbit.

In terms of the score samples ... a few good clips, but they're too short to amount to much of anything.

It's an enjoyable film i guess. But **** does it have its problems. I will say, one positive to the film is how Pepper gets to do a bit more.

So...did they say how long the sneak peek or something was going to be? As previously posted its probably going to be aimed towards women, so I guess that means more Clois.

Same. IM3 spoilers:

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
The people who are hurt about The Mandarin being an actor and complaining he's not in the film, need to remember he was in fact there, the whole time, he was just working in secret, pulling the strings from the shadows. Killian even professes 'I am the Mandarin' with his shirt off, revealing some cool dragon like tattoo's, looking exactly as the Mandarin should. He's not the right ethnicity, conventionally speaking, but then again neither is Ben Kingsley.

He's there, people just get hung up on the twist part. The twist isn't that the character doesn't exist in the film, the twist is which person the title really belongs to.


And as for All Things Superman...erm.... How about those Hans Zimmer samples ey folks?
