Both are hot but yeah...what was he thinking?!?!
with the way she reacted to the break up do you blame him she acted like jim carrey when jenny McCarthy left him lol
she was so depressed that she hooked up with sean penn for a little bit lol
They say they are treating this like it is the first Superman movie ever made, but I think there is an undercurrent to this poster and the themes of this film that is also very aware that this isn't the first Superman film. If you think about it, the way the public seems to be reacting to Superman in MOS is rather similar to how the general public views the iconic image of Superman - with cynicism and skepticism. The world finds it hard to believe in a goody, goody hero who does things for selfless reasons. In the film, that leads to distrust and fear. In the real world, reduced sales and declining popularity. This poster, despite its flaws of execution, thematically represents the filmmakers' task. Superman is on trial. They need to make him seem relevant again and make people believe in him again.
Clearly the blue light is coming from the door behind Supes shoulder
I don't really think so. I mean if you want to make it sharper and more properly aligned or something you run the risk of making it look too doctored, staged, and well... just fake looking.
I think the blur is done to draw the eye into the center. The soldiers are blurred on the sides. Supes is sharper and features the red accents. It's really cleverly done to stand out, not to mention it's not the generic poster we're used to seeing for genre films so it will stand out when displayed in theatres. I think the fact that it's thought-provoking too whilst answering no questions. 'Why is Superman being captive by the military?' it forces people to ask?
Everyone is saying that it's an exact shot from the film. But watching the Comic-con trailer it's not really. In the comic-con shot the soldiers are farther apart and the shot is taken more from the ground pointing up.
I am thinking the same thing. I looked at it yesterday and even lightened up the picture on my phone to try to match it. But the guards look different and even cavill neck is smaller. So it looks restaged and in that case done well. It still doesn't forgive that esthetically it looks poorly done. The same focus into the center you mentioned could have been done without taking away the sharpness and adding blur and shadow.
But it is what it is and I'm happy with the response from the non fans for the most part. I just wish that with all that fake countdown crap, using and toying with the real fans (us/we the loyal) they would have given us something to make up for it. We were the ones that this was for right?? Who else was out there working for it? "Share this batman dvd release and unlock a MOS exclusive". Exclusive for who? Now we are just supposed to be grateful. The funny thing is, in true Superman form fashion we have been...
If they had just released "poster" without all of that we would have loved it bc it's something after 6 months of nothing. We still would have complained lol but the response would have been more appreciative.
WB seems to now exactly what fans of other movies want and give them way more then they should. When it comes to us however... we are like the teenage step children. I know I'm venting for nothing and the trailer is around the corner. I'm just sick of being laughed at and sometimes it feels like the ones who are making this movie are the ones egging us in the face. That countdown really pissed me off I guess. I didn't mean to write all this but I guess that's what's cool about forums. Sorry guys. This is years/decades of a frustrated fan right here.
Maybe so, but if you could be the guy who banged Scarlet Johannson AND Blake Lively, then I think it's understandable.
You know, maybe feelings matter too. Sometimes people act like stars are not real people.
y'know......down the line, I WOULD like to see some posters and images with Superman in classic, heroic poses.
I said the same. Down the line... like closer to the release. But I would like to see This superman in those classics
looks like paramount is going to be making a big star trek push this month.
Yes yes yes!
yeah. I mean, I understand the approach WB is trying to take by choosing to release this current image of Superman in shackles. a different take that, from the looks of it, has succeeded in getting people talking.
but, at the end of a day, Superman is a hero, a symbol of hope and light. not some "villain" in shackles.
if WB only released promo images and posters that show Superman in dark light, or give off a moody, somber, depressed vibe, you'll give people the wrong impression ( unless, of course, the movie really is like that ).
you have to play up the heroic side of Superman, too.
give us at least one powerful, epic image of Superman looking heroic..........
I'm sure we'll get plenty of heroic Supes in marketing when the time comes. Right now, what they need to sell is the idea of Superman as a more complex character than he usually appears.
The image of Superman that the general public is used to is the one of him as a "figure of light" - but this poster is a reminder that he inhabits a dark world. I'm glad they're going for this angle early on.
wonder what "tone" the trailer will take..........
^ how recent was that quote??
I found it today. Its a quote from his promoting the dvd release.
Wow a few quotes today Russell Crowe had this to say over at MTV.com
That could very easily be interpretation in the wrong way ha ha
On Nolan's quote in glad he says its Synders gig, Nolan deserves a lot of credit for bringing the idea to the studio but Snyder deserves a massive part of the credit.
I don't even know what Crowe's trying to say..........lol
either way, it starts
I think he's trying to say that being Jor-El allows him to promote values like love and selflessness to young people.
I think Blakes hotter personally also she seems a nicer person which goes along way with me
