I think Sndyer will want to show that this movie is different from his previous movies by showing no CGI and no slow mo shots.

Hopefully. You just reminded me I was watching Watchman just the other day and was thinking about that exact thing. WAYYY overused the slow motion crap. Its a great movie overall, one of my top 7 cbm probably, maybe more, but the guy needs improvement. Nolan and Goyer will help with the story and original twists tremendously so we dont end up with another extremely disappointing Watchman ending.....

There are some moments when the slow motion is a GOOD thing.

I mean, you gotta love the bit in 300 where Leonidas kicks the messenger into the pit. Or in Legend of the Guardians where Soren is flying through the rain. Or even as The Comedian is thrown through the windoww of his apartment in Watchmen.

Where it gets annoying is in the middle of fight scenes, when it actually feels like someone is mucking around with the play/pause button.

And this is obvious in Watchmen's jail fight scene, a few scenes in Sucker Punch and the Guardians attack scene in Legend of the Guardians.

Like REALLY obvious.

That's what he needs to adress.

I don't mind a slow motion shot of Clark soaring through the air for example. But if he keeps doing slow motion punches and kicks in a fight scene I'll be watching with gritted teeth.

I agree. I didint say remove it completely, he juts over uses it to the point were its nothing special. It was like every single fight scene. I never saw 300, I heard to many bad things about it. One of these days I may get around to it if I ever remember but all Ive seen with Synder is Watchman and I am impressed except for the few things Ive said. He has more potential than most

I love 300, so I'd very much recommend it.

Both it and Watchmen have been in my top twenty films before I even knew they were from the same director.

But I guess that just shows how much I love Snyder's style.

Sucker Punch I also really love, but conceed that in terms of the substance, it lacks something. It's a flawed idea.

But it still has that Snyder element, that makes it feel like a work of art, not just a story.

And Legend of the Guardians is just a wonderful children's story, gives you a warm fuzzy feeling, and is in places just fantastic visually. Really really beautiful.

I'll be really curious to see how MOS comes out. I mean, he's said it's the one movie he would make look 'real world' as opposed to his usual fantasy settings, but I'm still wondering if there will be moments we'll notice 'this is a Snyder film'. And whether or not those moments will be positive or negative.

I'd recommend Dawn of the Dead as well. I know some people love the original but Snyders remake is a lot better in my book. A damn great movie.

That's the one Snyder film I haven't seen, and really should. Problem is, I can't stand Zombie movies. I find them really tedious

But it's the closest thing he's done to a 'real world' setting really, and I'd like to see what his early work was like

You should definitely check it out. I for one loved it.

Then again I love the zombie genre so there's that.

Be careful if you're one of those who find the plausibility of a Zombie Apocalypse ever happening to be like zero, then the cynic in you will make catty, sarcastic comments through the whole thing. At least that what my friend did when we all first watched it in theaters.

The only tedious thing is the main girl. Everything else is awesome in one way or another.

Since the date for Dark Knight Rises was announced people have been speculating that it will be with TDKR. Websites, forum dwellers, blogs...

I think WB is going to not do it out of spite.

IIRC, I remember hearing people say that the SR trailer would be attached to BB. Then it wasn't.

They need to save all the CGI money shots for the 2-minute theatrical trailer, silly.

July 2012 seems like a good date to start promoting the film. Although it seems to virtually confirm the June 2013 date.

Although if it does come out this year (and could be, with all the date shifting WB's done in the past few weeks) -- it's still a good date to start promoting it. Two possible scenarios:

- If it comes out December 2012, I expect that the full-length trailer will debut with Skyfall or Breaking Dawn 2.
- If the June 2013 date holds, then a bigger teaser to come out December with The Hobbit with more CGI shots. Then the full-length trailer to debut with Pacific Rim or Star Trek 2. (I would think more studios would vie for an April 2013 release, aside from that Evil Dead remake.)

Teaser in July, than in the winter some kind of second trailer thats just really a longer teaser, than a period of secrecy.....than around May of next year things really kick off with big news. Something along the lines of that formula.
Back to formula...?

I’m a big SR fan. But I would concede that Singer’s approach to the flying scenes (with a few notable exceptions) was somewhat “minimalist” – a fixed camera, linear flight, etc. (Donner did the same. But there, technology was the limiting factor.)

The fact is… nowadays many fantasy characters can fly. So Supes really needs to stand out from the crowd – to knock our proverbial socks off. Despite the risk of complaints, I say Snyder should “over direct” the flying – go all artsy and fancy and slo-mo (at least occasionally). In other words, Snyder should be Snyder.

Other heroes may fly. But audiences need to be reminded that Superman invented it – that he owns the sky.

Yeah I'm pretty confident of that, thing is alot of Superman/DC fans are gonna go see TDKR so it'd be stupid not to have the teaser with it.

the only reason Nolan's movies can have a teaser so fast is because he is using a lot practical effects on sets. thats why BB had a teaser in the summer. SR was still filming in summer 2005.

MOS will be almost 6 motnsh in post production when TDKR is realesed. the trailer will have a lot money shots. lets move on.

You're kidding. That, for me, is the biggest proof that Snyder can do a good job with Superman. That movie makes me even more confident than Watchmen, honestly, and I'm not even a big zombie guy. One day I was zapping while the thing I was watching was in commercials, when I happened to catch DOTD. It pulled me right in and I completely forgot about the other thing. It proved to me that Snyder can do compelling narrative, which I didn't really get out of the Gahoole movie, frankly. If he makes MoS that kind of movie, where the story just gets you and you're not just waiting for the good bits you saw in the trailers, I'll be happy.

Now, I'm not saying it's better than the original, which I haven't even watched. But I'd say it's Snyder at his best.
