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.
