    I'm pretty sure Jamie doesn't like my gushing either.

    Apparently on Wednesday, a MOS "sneak peak" will be shown during Modern Family.
    I remember Kal-El.9859 talking about that last night. He saw an announcement on tv.

    Been reading the posts for the past few pages.

    Let me get this straight. NO ONE here saw the third MOS trailer played in theatres when they went to see pretty much every big movie currently in theatres? (Iron Man, Oblivion, etc.)

    If MOS flops or does "ok" at the box office, it will be entirely WB's fault by this point for their extremely poor marketing. What's worse is that if MOS indeed doesn't do as well as it should have, we will see the "super haters" go on and on about how MOS' box office results clearly proves that Superman cannot be successful in the 21st century. They said the same thing about SR when it came out, even though the main reason why that movie didn't do great was due to poor marketing and being an almost carbon copy of the Donner films.

    Modern Family? So I guess they are trying to market it to women, I don't expect a lot of action to be shown...I wonder if the will highlight the romance?

    After the disappointment that is Iron Man 3, I surely hope the other metal man this summer delivers big time.

    I saw Oblivion and they just had the second trailer. Hopefully it will be with IM3 this weekend.

    Glad I'm not the only one. It's an enjoyable film. But i am reading reviews and thinking "Did i see the same film they saw?" I just didn't find the film THAT impressive. It's better than IM2 though.

    When I saw Oblivion, I got no Man of Steel trailer. Was definitely a bummer. Almost as disappointing as the movie!

    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.

    What kind of scores do you mean in particular? Often it seems that it's just poppy hooks dressed up with electric guitars and drums. There is a lot of very cinematic sounding metal, without sounding like metal arrangements of orchestral tunes.

    Oh, you're definitely not the only one. But don't go to the Iron Man section of this forum and try to explain why, because you'll be eaten out alive. :funny:

    There is a reason I haven't really posted my thoughts about it :oldrazz:

    I think the thing that pisses me off about IM3 the most
    is the unnecessary twist of Mandarin. I mean Ben just did an interview where he said that he would have actually liked to play Mandarin as a real villain. Wasted opportunity for the character.
