Symbol of hope: It was great that Christopher Nolan chose a darker hero for his superhero debut. Given that he'd been directing such-themed movies (Memento, The Following, and Inception), wouldn't it follow that the Man Of Steel himself would take on a darker tone? While in a few ways it did. Zack Snyder's fantastic vision. I love Snyder's photography, visuals and emotion in every movie he takes on. A lot of action yes, but this is a Superman movie, typical in Snyder like we've seen in Watchmen or in 300 or even in Sucker Punch. Zimmer's cold, bright score helped breathe a different life into DC Comics' newest film feature. Finally a real superman, forget about cliché thing of superman, hiding his identity with only his glasses on, single curly hair on his forehead, tearing his shirt off, flying around like a bird with his stupid underwear. Henry Cavill was an outstanding Clark Kent. His portrayal was on point: charismatic, fragile but strong, charming but menacing. Great performances by Michael Shannon, ...
This year marks the 75 anniversary of the character of Superman, and timed with this milestone marks a the first filmic retelling of the character since 1978 with Richard Donner's classic, making us all believe a man can fly. To mark three quarters of a century of arguably the most iconic superhero ever, Christopher Nolan (director and co-writer of the Batman/Dark Knight Trilogy) and Zack Snyder (the man who gave us such stylish films as 300, Watchmen, and Sucker Punch) have created a new origin tale that, although doesn't fly, definitely leaps a tall building in a single bound. We all know the origin of Superman, how his father Jor-El and Lana put baby Kal-el in a rocket and basted him off the planet of Krypton before the planet was destroyed, the rocket crashed to Earth and the child was adopted by Jonathan and Martha Kent, who eventually stood for truth, justice, and the American way and became Superman. The film takes the same road, but veers in some interesting directions. The majority of the first 4 ...
It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's yet another Hollywood superhero reboot! This time the victim is Superman. However, unless last year's bland, near-remake "The Amazing Spider-Man", this movie has quite the pedigree behind it. Produced by Christopher Nolan with a screenplay by David S. Goyer, both of "The Dark Knight" trilogy fame, and directed by one of my favorite directors Zack Snyder ("300", "Watchmen", "Sucker Punch"), there was something different about this one. My suspicions raised even higher when I first saw the trailers that there was something unique brewing. Alas, when I sat down after nearly 2 years of hype at the midnight screening of "Man Of Steel", my gut was confirmed. There's never been a superhero movie like this. Kicking off on Superman's homeworld of Krypton, there's an exciting, even frantic air about the proceedings. While in the past Krypton was only a vague foggy planet with stoic characters in the past movies, it's treated here with the utmost respect, and the audience spends n ...
Darren Aronofsky Really Was In Line To Direct Man Of Steel In an article detailing how movie studio's loyalty to certain actors and directors can sometimes backfire, THR reveal that Darren Aronofsky was not only on Warner Bros.' Radar for Man Of Stee, it seems he was actually a "finalist", and it came down to he and Zack Snyder for the gig. "Snyder’s three subsequent Warners films — Watchmen, Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole and Sucker Punch — disappointed. However, while giving him Man Of Steel (over the other finalist, Darren Aronofsky), Robinov took out insurance with producer Christopher Nolan, the studio’s most important filmmaker (Batman, Inception)." Aronofsky is a director that fans have wanted to see helm a CBM (probably because the man is incapable of making a bad movie) for a very long time. He passed on The Wolverine, but now it seems we also missed out on witnessing his vision for Superman - not that Snyder didn't do a bang up job. Do you think Aronofsky will ever get h ...
Man Of Steel sees 300 and Sucker Punch director Zack Snyder offer a fresh take on the ultimate superhero: the Man Of Steel himself, Superman. And with The Dark Knight team of Christopher Nolan and David S Goyer on production and writing duties, this is Warner Bros attempt to update the big blue boy scout for the 21st century following the middling Superman Returns. Man Of Steel will have Immortals' Henry Cavill square up against Machine Gun Preacher's Michael Shannon as General Zod as he seeks to protect his adoptive planet. Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner will be on hand to provide fatherly advice as Jor El and Jonathon Kent respectively while The Muppets' Amy Adams serves as Superman's love interest - the feisty reporter Lois Lane. So far we've had the official plot synopsis, the release of the banner image and the inevitable fanboy posturing over changes to Superman's outfit. The first official footage is expected to be unveiled at Comic-Con 2012, so stay tuned to our Comic-Con hub to ensure you d ...
Man Of Steel- A Closer Look Expectations are high for June 2013's Man Of Steel. Warner Bros. needs a new mega franchise now that its two cash cows--Harry Potter and Batman--are finished. (At least for the time being. We don't think we've seen the last of either character.) Those two franchises helped Warner Bros. dominate the box office in recent ten years. Now Disney is set to prosper in the same way thanks to its acquisition of Marvel and all the lucrative superhero properties that came with as well as the recent purchase of Lucasfilm that will begin to pay off in 2015 with the release of Star Wars: Episode VII. Man Of Steel's trailers prove that the influence of producer Christopher Nolan is strong. Director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) has clearly dialed back a lot of his own stylistic flourishes in order to better serve the story. That's a smart move on Snyder's part considering that audiences around the globe widely rejected Sucker Punch, his 2011 dud. Nolan's lead is a good one to follow: The Dark K ...
Watched "Sucker Punch".. Now, I'm not a big fan of Zack Snyder's direction or style of direction, but this one is really the worst of the lot.. It was such a waste of time.. I may not see any Zack Snyder film in the future except "Man Of Steel", just because it has Christopher Nolan's name attached to the credits..
Film rant III: (by the way, thinking of starting a film blog... see if one of these local Chicago papers would pay me to do film reviews weekly. Talk about a sweet job) Man Of Steel. My first issue is the directorial choice of Zack Snyder. His resume of 300, Watchmen and Sucker Punch don't exactly inspire confidence. However, I praise Christopher Nolan as a god and his involvement nearly absolves the pick of Snyder. My issue with Synder isn't necessarily (or absolutely, I should say) negative, but its a style choice. I don't see Snyder, a director of hyper stylized and visually over-saturated *** kicking, going well with Nolan's realistic, gritty, fantasy turned reality style of film making that has made him one of my top director choices. That being said, Batman, being much easier to make more real due to his lack of superhuman powers, fits Nolan better than Superman, who is the definition of superhuman. I am interested to see Nolan's writing and producing at play in this. The trailer, very minimalistic ...
When the planet Krypton is destroyed, Jor-El (Russell Crowe) manages to send his son to a planet far away: Earth. More precisely: Kansas. He grows up as a mere human named Clark Kent (Henry Cavill) but all the while struggles with his difference to everyone else. When a mortal threat to Earth becomes apparent, Clark is aware of the power he actually holds and must decide what type of man he is going to be. The darker direction of this movie was surely influenced by Christopher Nolan who is a producer on the project. Nolan turned the Batman franchise into a phenomenal success with the Dark Knight trilogy after it suffered the terrible artistic and commercial blow that was Batman & Robin. Director Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen, Sucker Punch) is known for his hyperkinetic style and will definitely bring a new energy to Superman that has never seen before. Snyder has described his version of Superman as being completely different to any past adaptation: “When we started working on the movie, the t ...
