Let's see Man Of Steel at the Valley View Cinemark

It's finally almost here, the much anticipated re-boot of the of the iconic and classic Superman franchise. Directed by Zack Snyder ( The Watchmen, 300), the re-invented Superman is a darker and  edgier hero and no longer the shallow boy scout character that he used to be.Christopher Nolan, the director who turned Batman into a troubled and complex psychopath was in charge of creating the new story and giving the new Superman more depth and making him less of a cartoon .

Man Of Steel

Details of the plot have been guarded and not much has leaked out. Henry Cavill stars as the new man of steel and Michael Shannon plays his arch enemy, Genral Zod.  Other than that, this is all IMDB says:

"A child, sent to Earth from a dying planet, is adopted by a couple in rural Kansas. Posing as a journalist, he uses his extraordinary powers to protect his new home from an insidious evil."

The trailers that are out hint at a lot more. To see them, click HERE or HERE . This is not your fathers Superman.

UPDATE: Showtimes were posted today. As a group, let's plan to catch the 7:40 show. NOTE: Several members have complained that 3D gives them headaches, so for this time, we'll plan on catching the standard digital showing ( not Real 3D or XD 3D).

Due to the expected popularity of this movie, I would heavily recommend advance purchase of your tickets. You can get them by clicking HERE


If anyone wants to meet beforehand for an appetizer of adult beverage, let's plan on meeting at the Oak Barrel ( 5975 Canal Rd at the front of the parking lot where the Cinemark is located) at 6:00.  I'll try to get there at 5:30 to watch for the people who sign up.

      Sorry we missed you Jan. We had a decent sign at the Oak Barrel and waited in the lobby of the theater until five minutes before the movie.

      If anyone would like to go with Jan to one of the 3D shows, the XD Real 3D show is at 7:00 and the Real 3D show is at 8:20. You could still meet us at the Oak Barrel before the show.

    Here's an interesting tidbit I just read about: Despite having cost $225 Million to produce, The Man Of Steel is close to being profitable even before being released, due to $170 million worth of product placement deals!

    Something came up. Won't be able to make it.

    hi group. Im new and am looking forward to seething this movie. I have read comics most of my life so I am always interested in seeing superhero movies.

    I love movies and need a movie buddy! I normally go to Valley View. I'll watch just about anything, but I love typical guy movies.

    Is the plan to see 3d or 2d?

    1 · June 3, 2013

    • Pat

      Hi Kathy: No final decision has been made yet, but this strikes me as one of those movies that would benefit from being seeing in 3D. A lot will depend on how they end up scheduling the 2D and 3D movies

      June 3, 2013

  • Terri C.

    Depending on work schedule, but hope to be here :)
