    This is starting to look up. I was kind of skeptical, but that new trailer rocks. Keeping my fingers crossed.

    I have my fingers crossed that Bryan Singer doesn't take the heart out of this one. Superman is too important to screw up. Not that I didn't like X-Men I & II but they were a little lacking.

    Oh I'm looking forward to this. Unless of course that scene with Lois and Superman flying next to the globe has Lois wondering if Superman can read her mind.

    Does anyone know for CERTAIN though that the John Williams score will be used in the movie, and it's not just being used in the trailers?

    i couldnt help but laugh at the rescue of the plane though.

    in the animated series, when clark "debuts" as superman, he tries to save a plane and ends up ripping it apart before it hits the ground, muttering "oh great, way to go clark." while hes working.

    the trailer is awesome :D

    i know what im working on next :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Williams' main theme will be used and incorporated into the movie, though the rest of the score is be by someone else. Can't remember the name of the composer at the moment.

    Am I the ONLY person who thinks that trailer made the movie look worse than I originally thought?

    I don't know what it is, but there's something about this movie that just makes me glad I'm not a diehard Superman fan, because I'm not going to see my precious childhoot hero stomped all over (of course, I already had that with Batman & Robin).

    Oh, and usually I dig Spacey's acting, but he seems so forced in this that I don't even think HE can save it.

    *The above is simply my opinion, and you're welcome to disagree*

    i dunno, i think his take on luthor being... well... psycho is pretty good. hes happy go lucky and can change in a heartbeat. sort of like gene hackman but on pcp while being bipolar.

    i gotta admit, im looking forward to the film moreso now, especially given the pretty nifty flight effects. the hard landing shot was pretty cool, and i think routh can pull it off.

    im still not sold on the suit, but im more 85/15 on the movie now, than earlier this week when i was 70/30 (itll be good/itll suck balls odds)

    The guy's name is John Ottman (he did the music for X Men 2). I cant say I'm familiar with his music at all. A friend of mine heard, or read, an interview with him where he was talking about composing a new theme for Lex Luthor. The decision not to use the "March of the Villains" from William's score was not taken lightly and mainly done because that theme is more closely associated with Otis than with Luthor. I also saw a net interview with Richard Donner who was over the moon about Singer's work on the new Superman which bodes well too given his stamp of approval. So I'm hopeful :)

    Cheers,

    Dave

    I was finally able to see the Trailer on my Wife's Computer since it's a better System.

    The one scene that made me laugh was when Lois asks Superman "Where were you"?

    I could almost picture the rest of the scene...

    Lois: "Where were you"?"Where have you been"? Nag,...Nag,...Nag...Complain,...Complain...

    Superman: "Now THAT is exactly WHY I went away for a while".. :eek

    The New Preview looks interesting, I look forward to seeing the Movie.

    Even though I STILL don't like the new costume, it looks like it's going to be a pretty good movie. :)

    OK, I've got to admit I was completely skeptical about this movie until now...

    That trailer actually gave me goosebumps. I loved it.

    Kevin Spacey looks brilliant as Lex and the special effects look tight. I'm actually looking forward to this now.

    I think most of us think it looks good because we are hearing Williams' music. (his best ever IMO)

    ;)

    It would not be nearly as good without it.

    Now, John Ottman...sigh.

    Do a search on IMDB. How many memorial scores has he written?

    NONE

    I hope they do use William's theme a LOT because I have never enjoyed Ottman's original work.

    Actually, no, that's not it.
    Can't you just accept people might actually think it looks good on it's own merits?
    By "most", I think you mean "you". ;)

    I was never really interested in another Superman movie. Hearing all of the termoil the preproduction had been through, I was sure this would be an attrocity. However, I have to admit, I'm surprised by the trailer. I'm actually interested in seeing this movie now.

    I think Kate Bosworth was miscast as Lois Lane.

    They should've cast Mischa Barton. Someone with a Margot Kidder-like hardass bitch quality.

    If Superman is returning... Kate Bosworth will have us all wondering why/how Lois Lane became so sugar sweet.

    I think Lois is a BIG miscast as well.

    I am not saying Margot was a great Lois but she was pretty good. She had that "*" to her, like Lois should have. Hatcher also had it.

    Oh, she was cute at one point IMO too:

    Since the "official" website doesn't seem to understand that some people have WIDESCREEN monitor.

    I made a 1440x900 desktop image from the Official site. ("wallpaper" to you MS-Monkeys, you know it isn't paper and it doesn't go on a wall)

    P.S. Sorry a friend got laid off from MS yesterday and I am on a bit of an Anit-MS thing today. .....and I live in Seattle.

    the new ad doesnt really make me want to see it, dont think it will be total trash from the trailer it looks like an ok movie, but not a must see for me, but then i guess thinking about it ive always been more of a marginal supes fan,

    batmans always been my boy :p

    but well like ive said before ill rent it for sure, but thats about it, the kid still looks like superboy, and if they were doing a begins type movie, i think he would suit the role more, let him grow into it over a few movies...... the suit doesnt look mega crap in some scenes, but that close up.....nerf ball :p


    sadly wasnt to impressed at spaceys take on luthor either, i thought he would hit it out of the park and would be the best part of the flick, but looks like hes going for the same loony/a bit goofy version of lex like hackman did, which i was never a fan of in the first movies, thought they could do so much more with lex, but at least this time he doesnt have ottis.....at least someone please tell me he doesnt have an ottis?

    wish they went more for that cold hearted super smart no non-sense buisnessman approach for the flick, a bit more like the lex from the justice league cartoon, spacey doing that approach to the role would be incredible,

    Yeah, I wonder how much those contacts cost? They were probably thousands of dollars and custom made for the movie. And if so, I'll bet a much better pair of contacts could've been found off the shelf for a lot less that would've given Brandon more realistic looking blue eyes.

    On another note, I always wished Jim Carrey had worn blue contacts when he portrayed Andy Kaufman in "Man on the Moon".
