Chris G. Williams Beware: I mix tech and personal interests here.

Sorry Neo, but Superman is gonna kick your ass this year. I just watched the second trailer (twice) and OMG. http://www.apple.com/trailers/wb/supermanreturns/trailer2/large.html

You must watch it now. (twice.) I'll wait... seriously, go ahead.

I know, I know... I was one of the first (of many) to stand up and scream that this movie was going to suck horribly (and it very well could) but after watching this trailer, I have hope. Much hope. Is it the same level of OMG as Batman Begins? No, honestly, I doubt it. But damn that was a good movie. This movie is going to kick all sorts of ass, in a totally different (i.e. not DARK) way than Batman did. Which is good... Supes isn't dark. He can't be dark. It just doesn't work.

Yeah he's too scrawny, and the costume is ugly, but damn... when that music kicks in... I get chills. Frickin' Chills!!

Kevin Spacey is unfreakinbelievable in this trailer, and presumably in the whole movie. He's a great choice for Lex Luthor, insane and evil, in only the way Kevin Spacey can be. Wow. I'm gonna go watch it again.

Damn. My hopes are high for this film. Please. Do. Not. Suck!!

So I don't get it...where did Superman go? What's the storyline? Does it happen "after" the last movie? So many questions...

I think Spacey is AMAZING as Luthor...awesome pic...although bald, he reminds me a bit of Howie Mandell (Superman...deal, or no deal?). He'll steal the show for sure.

yes, this is technically Superman 5 and occurs within the same continuity as the previous movies. That was the main reason I was convinced it was going to suck massively. That and the ugly costume and scrawy actor. Still the trailer looks damn good and Spacey is da bomb. I love his interaction with Lois in the clip.

I trust you implicitly and you're right...Spacey is amazing...but I'm still on the fence. It definitely has suckage potential.

Ever time I saw spacey I expected him to put his little finger up to his mouth like Dr Evil...
