Before I get into this weeks’ latest trailers. Myself along with every Lamb member want to offer our sincerest condolences to the families and friends who have lost loved ones during that senseless act of violence last week in Aurora, Colorado.  These victims were movie fans just like you and me and to see their lives end for no reason makes us very sad but also very angry.  To help respect the lives that were lost.  I recommend that everyone should go see a movie in a theatre this week.   Now, let’s look at some trailers.

Man of Steel.    06/14/2013

Look,It’s a bird, it’s a plane,it’s a really slow and boring trailer.  This retelling of the Superman origin says that it’s being directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan, but it looks like it was directed by Michael Bay and Produced by Steven Speilberg.  All that was shown was just a man on a boat who has flashbacks of him as a kid wearing a cape, and at the very end is shown flying.   I hope a more straight forward preview will be done soon because this was horrible.

Branded.   09/07/2012

A man gets a great job at a new company run by Max Von Sydow and Jeffery Tambor.  Only to discover that they are putting these weird creature inside most humans to control them.  The story looks very original and I like the acting.  But the bad CGI really takes me out of the movie completely to the point that I can’t buy into this world.  It’s too bad this wasn’t released in the 90’s.because I would have had a greater interest in seeing this than.

The Master. 11/09/2012

Finally we get the full trailer for director Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest movie and it looks really good.   I’m going to predict right now just based on this trailer that this film will get picked up for a lot of nominations at the 2013 Academy Awards. The cinematography is gorgeous, the acting looks amazing and the story about the start of certain faith based organizations is fascinating.  I’m highly impressed by the trailer.

Chickens with Plums.  08/17/2012

From The writers and directors of the Academy Award nominated picture “Persepolis” come their first live action movie.  Based on the graphic novel by Marjane Satrapi. This is a highly visual and whimsical fairy tale about a man who loses the will to live after his violin is destroyed.  I recognize the lead actor from “The Diving Bell and The Butterfly” and Isabella Roselini being in this.

Trailer Hitch:  Superman: The Movie  12/15/1978

This week I thought it would be appropriate to look back at the trailer for the first time the man of steel hit the big screen.  While the special effects are indeed dated, this is still a fun movie. Christopher Reeve is iconic in the lead role, and Gene Hackman is a lot of fun as the villain Lex Luthor.  It’s a great comic book movie that doesn’t get completely dark and serious in it’s tone.  It’s just a lot of fun.

Have a great week everyone.

    I guess I’m the only one that actually liked the “Man of Steel” teaser trailer though it is interesting that Superman at any point would work on a boat….

    I wasn’t wowed by the Superman trailer. I saw the Russell Crowe version in the theater. I really like the Kevin Costner version better for some reason. I’m sure the actual film will turn out amazing. I heard about the Comic Con footage and the inevitable subsequent trailer will probably be awesome.

    Branded. Wow. I was totally expecting something quirky but that looks weird as hell and dark. Kinda reminds me of a darker version of They Live.

    I can’t wait for The Master. Looks awesome. I’m glad Joaquin didn’t turn out to be crazy.

    Chicken with Plums I’ll probably skip but it does look intriguing.

    Original Superman Trailer – blast from the past! Funny that half the trailer is Krypton.

      I like your idea of “Branded” reminding you of “They Live” I never thought of that before. It does look a little bit better, but the CGI still looks outdated

  3. I love, love, love the Man of Steel trailer. I love the vibe and tone. Not boring. Not horrible. And I prefer the Jor El version.

    I so can not wait for The Master. I’m such a Paul Thomas Anderson superfan.

      This is the scientology picture and Phillip Swymore Hoffman is doing an impersonation of L. Ron Hubbard. Right. I don’t want to speculate too much because I might get sued.
