Who isn’t excited about this film? Finally, after Man of Steel we’ll see something from Henry that will show his versatility as an actor. I mean cmon’ he’s great and all but post- Superman-blitz, I was thinking that he’d be stuck as just the Superman which isn’t such a bad thing at all to be honest. And it’s fun to see him getting all down and (dirty?! – nah) and suave for his role as Napoleon Solo and ofcourse, he’s co-starring here with the charming Armie Hammer ^_^
So let me cut this short now and check out the trailer of the film that was released yesterday 🙂
Here are some of the movie stills released by Warner Bros. Pictures
The film is slated for release August 14 of 2015!
I’ve actually been dying to watch this film since its trailer’s release and I got just what I’ve expected it to be. The film’s another look at Clark Kent’s more emotional past and mysterious history. For a chance to salvage at least a part of his dying planet Krypton, Kal-el was transported to Earth by his parents where he was adopted by his human parents and was raised as Clark Kent. Trying to be as normal as possible, Clark still struggled to find his place in life especially after discovering his super powers. Here, there was enough emotional sub-plots that would make you succumb in your room and listen to Five For Fighting “Superman” song humming “it’s not easy to be me…” Henry Cavill was perfect as Clark Kent. His seriousness somehow is all too depressing but that face is a Superman face made in heaven. The heaviness of his demeanor all throughout the film was successful enough in trying to maneuver the audience into the more intimate side of this most famous super hero.
The film can also boast of an incredible supporting cast from Amy Adams to Diane Lane and Michael Shannon to Kevin Costner. It was an ensemble that made it all possible for this film to fully realize its potentials and avoid being cliché at least 80% of its entirety.
My only problem is its 3D effects which I didn’t appreciate that much. I would’ve watch it on regular cinema and still feel the same about it – there was somehow lacking in this aspect but overall, it’s still to be consider as one of the best this year – by far. The elements of it being a franchise are all there – people just need to watch it and I’m sure they will!
