Man Of Steel - All You Need To Know in 4 Teasers/Trailers And 10 TV Spots

man of steel
As most of you would know by now that Man Of Steel is Superman and Superman is the Man Of Steel, the upcoming super hero reboot.  Before you rushing to the cinema near you in June 2013 to witness the soon-to-be epic in 2D, 3D or IMAX 3D, Warner Bros has been pampering the fans with numerous trailers, teasers and TV Spots. That's the whole objective of this post.

By the way, one particularly interesting discovery from the trailers/TV spots is that the "S" icon on the superman's suit is not an S, it is actually...Shhhhhh...(sorry, we have no clue at the moment as well, I guess you will need to find it out yourself in June 2013 ;-)),

Short synopsis of Man Of Steel (source: GeekTyrant):

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Henry Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond his imagination. Transported years ago to Earth from Krypton, a highly advanced, distant planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question 'Why am I here?' Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Diane Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Kevin Costner), Clark discovers having extraordinary abilities means making difficult decisions. When the world is in dire need of stability, an even greater threat emerges. Clark must become a Man of Steel, to protect the people he loves and shine as the world’s beacon of hope – Superman.

Now, enjoy the trailers/teasers and TV spots of Man Of Steel below.

fast and furious 6
Here are the TOP 5 Movies from US for the week ending 26th May 2013 (Sun).

SPECIAL NOTE : Everyone is expecting Fast And Furious 6 to top the US Box Office Chart for the last week but no one is expecting it to did it so well. For the opening weekend of $122 millions, Fast 6 is the best instalment of the Fast franchise. If you might already know, Fast 7 is already in the pipeline and the villain is confirmed to be another action "hero" Jason Statham. I am so looking forward to it.

Pacific Rim - Cool Behind The Scene Featurette

Pacific Rim
The two-minutes behind the scene sneak peak of Pacific Rim that I am going to share next will give you a glimpse of how the giant robot is integrated with the human so as two-become-one (technically should be three-become-one since there are two human beings controlling the robot). From the visionary director, Guillermo del Toro, this upcoming original sci-fi looks set to be an epic in the making and will be remembered for many years to come. 

In this sneak peek, there are many new footage not shown in the previous trailers. Also, you can get a better glimpse of the giant monsters (Kaiju) and the epic fight with the giant robot.    

Pacific Rim will be released globally on 12th July 2013 in IMAX and IMAX 3D as well. For my earlier coverage on this movie, click here.

The Wolverine - The Insanely Good Trailer

the wolverineThe Wolverine, a spin off from the X-men franchise is also a sequel to the 2009's X-Men Origins : Wolverine. Hugh Jackman again reprises the titular role (I personally view that Hugh Jackman fit into this superhero with animal-keen senses, enhanced physical capabilities and super healing power, perfectly. What do you think?).
Directed by James Mangold and stars, Hugh Jackman, Will Yun Lee, Svetlana Khodchenkova, Hiroyuki Sanada, and Brian Tee. It hits theatres on 26th July 2013.
Short Synopsis of The Wolverine (source;

Weekly Box Office Movies in US (Ending 2013/05/19)

Here are the TOP 5 Movies from US for the week ending 19th May 2013 (Sun).

SPECIAL NOTE : After two weeks at top, Iron Man 3 finally succumbed to the second place by the newly released Star Trek sequel, Star Trek Into Darkness. The new crown tops the chart with $70.2 millions over the opening weekend, it's at the lower end of the estimates (In comparison, it is slightly lower than the 2009's Star Trek, which tops the chart with $75.2 millions on the opening weekend). However, this sequel performed much stronger in the international markets as compared to its predecessor, so far, it has garnered $165 millions internationally.

Iceman Cometh 3D [冰封侠3D] - Latest Movie Poster

iceman cometh 3d
If you are a martial art (or Kungfu) movie fans and do Hong Kong martial art movies for a while, you will sure to know who is Yuen Biao (元彪), he is a famous Kungfu Hong Kong actor with similar rank/status as Jackie Chan (成龙) and Samuel Hong (洪金宝) in the 80s. 

The reason why I talked about Yuan Biao is because one of his most famous martial art movie is The Iceman Cometh 急凍奇俠 (1989). This year, the remake (Iceman Cometh 3D - 冰封侠3D) will be released in 3D, starring the most popular martial art actor of the present time, Donnie Yen (甄子丹). The exact release date has not been announced but the film distributor (China 3D Group) has just release the official movie poster recently. Thus, it looks like it is coming real soon.

Brief synopsis of Iceman Cometh 3D (source: wikipedia):

The Iceman Cometh 3D revolves around a Captain America-like character portrayed by Donnie Yen. The heroic role and his evil foe (Wang Baoqiang) lived during the Ming Dynasty. Both were frozen during a fight and were defrost in modern day Hong Kong where they continue their battle.

Man Of Steel - Behind The Scenes And New Movie Banners

Man Of Steel
One of my favourite superhero in my younger years is Superman (followed by Spiderman and Batman). The reason is quite obvious, he can fly, he can see through object with his laser eye, he has super strength that can stop a speeding train and most importantly, he is very down to earth alien (when he is Clark Kent).

The reason why I brought-up the superman is because the latest reboot, Man Of Steel is just around the corner (June 2013) and I have high hope for this new franchise of the "old" superhero. The main reason being it is produced by Christopher Nolan (whom last brought us the Batman Trilogy which is super awesome).

Recently, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have released two new character banners for Man of Steel. One featuring Superman the other featuring Zod. Also, there is a "Behind The Scenes" clip to let the fans have a peep on how they re-imagining the superman in this reboot (but not too much though).

For my earlier coverage of Man Of Steel, click here.

Now, enjoy the movie banners and featurrete below.

Pacific Rim - Latest Trailer That Will Blow You Away!

Pacific Rim movie poster
Move away Godzilla, forget about the Transformers, here comes the long awaited sci-fi, Pacific Rim, the gigantic man-made robots vs the gigantic monsters called Kaiju. Directed by Guillermo del Toro (the well known director whom last brought us the Hellboy franchise and Pan's Labyrinth). 

Last weekend, Warner Bros released the latest trailer of Pacific Rim at  the Hero Complex Film Festival. It is awesomely awesome and I can guarantee you that watching the trailer once is not enough, especially if you are a sci-fi fans. 

Before proceed to the trailer, check out the short synopsis of Pacific Rim below (source:

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes — a washed up former pilot and an untested trainee — who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Now... enjoy the trailer below.

Pacific Rim - Latest Character Posters (Jul 2013)

pacific rim
Being a sci-fi fan, one of my personal most anticipated movie is non other than Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. One specific reason is it is not a sequel or prequel ie a brand new story with giant monsters and giant robots. A bit like Transformers but with a fresh touch. 

Warner Bros has released quite a few mouth watering giant robots posters (click here to see the details) and visually awesome trailer(s) since a few weeks ago. Recently, they have released yet another marketing campaign that allow user to create their own Jaeger (aka the giant robot) poster (poster on the left is an example of the poster created via this app). If you find it interesting, click here to find out more of the app.

Also, two more character posters have been released just awhile ago. So, enjoy the app and the character posters below..

Ender's Game - First Visually Stunning Trailer [IMAX - Nov 2013]

Ender's Game movie poster
Ender's Game is a popular Sci-fi written by American author, Orson Scott Catt. Finally it is adapted into a motion picture with promising casts like Harrison Ford, Ben Kingsley ("Mandarin" from Iron Man 3) and Asa Butterfield (from "Hugo" fame). I must admit that I've not read the book but from the view of the first trailer, it is a true hardcore Science fiction. 

Before getting into the hot trailer, check out the short synopsis below (source:

In the near future, a hostile alien race (called the Formics) have attacked Earth. If not for the legendary heroics of International Fleet Commander, Mazer Rackham (Ben Kingsley), all would have been lost. In preparation for the next attack, the highly esteemed Colonel Graff (Harrison Ford) and the International Military are training only the best young children to find the future Mazer. Ender Wiggin (Asa Butterfield), a shy, but strategically brilliant boy is pulled out of his school to join the elite.

Arriving at Battle School, Ender quickly and easily masters increasingly difficult war games, distinguishing himself and winning respect amongst his peers. Ender is soon ordained by Graff as the military’s next great hope, resulting in his promotion to Command School. Once there, he’s trained by Mazer Rackham, himself, to lead his fellow soldiers into an epic battle that will determine the future of Earth and save the human race.

Now, enjoy the very first visually stunning trailer from Ender's Game and a few of the movie posters/photos.
