Today must be Awesome Movie Trailers Day! Following up on that totally rad “The Lone Ranger” trailer comes this new, full-length trailer for Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel”. As with Tonto in “The Lone Ranger”, I am totally digging the mood Snyder is striking in “Man of Steel”. It’s like a combination of the “mature” themes of Bryan Singer’s “Superman Returns” and the comic book action of, well, the comic books. (I know, I know, most people hated Singer’s “Superman Returns”, but I’m not one of them, so whatever, dudes.) Check out the first full trailer for “Man of Steel”, and you will believe a movie about a guy who flies can be cool again.

Clark Kent​/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twentysomething journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

Starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, Russell Crowe, and fighting for truth, justice, and the American way June 14, 2013.
