Final Trailer for MAN OF STEEL Highlights Hans Zimmer’s Ominous Score

     June 6, 2013


Warner Bros. has released a new, final theatrical trailer for director Zack Snyder’s highly anticipated Man of Steel.  There are bits and pieces of new footage here but it’s mostly stuff we’ve seen before.  The main reason to watch the trailer is to hear Hans Zimmer’s fantastic score set against images from the film, which take on a more foreboding tone along with a warning from Russell Crowe’s Jor-El.  One more week, folks!

Hit the jump to watch the new trailer.  The film also stars Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin CostnerDiane Lane, Antje TraueMichael Shannon, and Laurence Fishburne.  Man of Steel opens in 3D on June 14th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Man of Steel:

In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time. Clark Kent/Kal-El (Cavill) is a young twenty-something journalist who feels alienated by powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Transported to Earth years ago from Krypton, an advanced alien planet, Clark struggles with the ultimate question – Why am I here? Shaped by the values of his adoptive parents Martha (Lane) and Jonathan Kent (Costner), Clark soon discovers that having super abilities means making very difficult decisions. But when the world needs stability the most, it comes under attack. Will his abilities be used to maintain peace or ultimately used to divide and conquer? Clark must become the hero known as “Superman,” not only to shine as the world’s last beacon of hope but to protect the ones he loves.

    Strange when in the final trailer: a villain says nothing and nearly all attention is devoted to the mayhem. I’d like to re-watch “Superman Returns” than watch this.

      Sure pal.

      Bryan we need you back on the set. Hugh Jackman has a problem with his lines.

  • Troller

    Anyone know the name of this Hans Zimmer sound piece?

    • mbmarquis69

      I think it’s called “Arcade”.

  • Nathaniel Haywood

    Keeps looking better and better! I love the new snippets of action in this one. You also get to see a brief glimpse into how we’re going to get a lot more of Jor-El than in previous films.

  • Jason Richards

    Wow, what an absolute jaw dropping trailer. This movie looks way too good to be true.

  • amar

    Zack is director who knows how to use cgi better, all his movies has fantastic visuals.

  • Elephant

    I’ve never seen so much marketing for a movie where my excitement for it still doesn’t go down. Usually they give enough away that watching the movie isn’t as fun. But here, despite all the trailers, the TV spots, the clips, I’m still as excited to see Man of Steel as I was a year ago.
    We know nearly every dramatic beat in the story by this point, but each new clip or trailer still raises the heartbeat, doesn’t it?

    • mbmarquis69

      We have to tip our hats to the marketing for MOS. Rarely have I seen trailers that are this effective. They sell the hell out of this movie. Tone, pitch perfect. Showing just enough, holding just enough back. The voice over is almost poetic in its simplicity. I sound like a Superman fanboy and I’m not at all. The trailers just have that affect on me.

      • Lex Walker

        Above all else, Snyder’s movies make awesome trailers.

  • Unique Jenique

    Hans Zimmer is a god. Excellent score. The footage of Jor-El is great. Glad we get to see more of him in the film. My body is ready.

  • Flubacca
    • Lex Walker

      So many logical issues with his argument, not the least of which is his general statement of “They’re the same genre so all Superhero Movies are the same.” If everyone was repeating the basic Donner formula over and over again with secret identities being a big part of the equation, a damsel in distress, superpowers, etc. I’d agree with that writer’s assessment of movies repeating themselves due to “limited ingredients”. That’s just not the case though. The recent slate of Batman and Marvel films alike have all added a considerable amount to the genre since their classic albeit overly simplistic “grandfather” donned the red and blue tights. Are all superhero movies new and innovative? No, just look at Green Lantern, Fantastic Four, or Amazing Spider-man. But the number of clever interpretations offering something new far outweighs the duds that fizzle out. We’ve even gotten some original flicks like Chronicle and All Superheroes Must Die. That writer was so desperate to show us how he’s “over” superhero movies that he failed to make a real argument. /nerdrant

    Can’t wait for this film. Also can’t wait for Goldilocks to give it a C-. That is always a sign that it is a good movie. The question still remains and haunts us all…why is Matt Goldilocks still working at Collider??!!

  • There’s a storm coming Nolan

    Hmmmm… a week until the movie premieres and not one review posted on Rotten tomatoes yet. I wonder why?

    • Lex Walker

      A lot of the California-based press only just had their first press screening last night, and the rest of the screenings aren’t until early next week, and even then there’s an embargo on publishing.

      • There’s a storm coming Nolan

        If the product was stellar there would already be early reviews posted, especially because the critics who are privy to the early screenings are usually the ones most likely to give positive reviews. The fact that none have been posted yet isn’t a good sign.

      • Lex Walker

        Posting a review early after attending a press screening gets you on the PR shite-list with a studio, and while it does happen anyways, we’re not even in the week of release yet. I can see it happening Monday or Wednesday, but doing it now is just begging for Warner Bros. to get mad at your publication and thus get that member of the press knocked off of future screening invites.

      • There’s a storm coming Nolan

        Well I understand what you are saying, I’m going off ancedotal evidence I’ve noticed from reading Rottentomatoes for years now. Usually, especially when a studio is confident and wants to cement the hype around a picture, they’ll have an advanced screening so critics can post positive reviews before a release so more buzz can be created (e.g. Star Trek Into Darkness, This is the End). However, Man of Steel hasn’t had a single review posted yet and that does not bode well.

      • Lex Walker

        Right, the problem with anecdotal evidence is that not all films screen the same amount of time in advance. So while some reviews will inevitably drop pre-embargo, it’s hard for that to happen when most of the reviewing press haven’t written their reviews yet or won’t even see the film until next week. Reviews will drop early, you just need to give people time to write them. Also, by contrast, Star Trek and This is the End both started the press screening process about 3 weeks before the films’ release dates.

      • Strong Enough

        someone said the same shit last year with TDKR and it turned out at 87

      • Da truth

        It was also shite!

      • Strong Enough

        you act like i give a shit about your opinion!

      • Strong Enough to be an arse

        Will you be “Strong Enough” to admit your an idiot when this film is lambasted by the critics? I don’t think so.
        Also, is it true Jon Nolan is offering to have peeps pee in his mouth for money under the user name of anyone who critiques Nolan? Copy and paste under this comment to confirm jon.

      • Strong Enough

        I have to admit your weird but funny. but more of the former. changing usernames must be a pain tho. keep up the good work. lmao

    • Leo

      The embargo lifts on Monday, June 10. Expect reviews that day. They do this to lessen spoilers.

    they should put hans zimmer above the title with the actors coz lets face it he’s as much as a star in this as any of them. his music has no equal

    • Lex Walker

      Unfortunately, save for John Williams, there’s no composer out there who’s really a household name (in average non-geek America). Zimmer, Elfman, Horner, and the rest are all great, but if you ask someone for a piece they composed or a specific movie, most would be really hard-pressed to do so.

  • Lance

    This looks great! The trailers really have been fantastic for this movie. Hope the actual film doesn’t let us down, because this summer could use a big cinematic victory about now.

    Christopher. James. Nolan! (And friends.)

  • Strong Enough

    I checked the soundtrack and it said Junkie XL did this track not Hans

    • mbmarquis69

      That’s interesting. It does have a “younger” vibe to it if that makes any sense.

  • Joe

    A M A Z I N G L Y
    E P I C !

  • Chris Nolan Hack Fraud Sellout

    I’m beyond excited!!!!! Once this movie fails critically and makes a tepid box-office run (after the big opening box office) I’m going to f-cking throw it back in all your stupid f-cking faces so f-cking hard I’m a gunna cream myself!
    Also, is there any truth to the rumours that Jonathan Nolan comes onto this website and pastes an offer to have a Nolan impersonator piss in his mouth for money under the screen name of anyone who criticizes Nolan? Cause if it’s true that’s f-cked. Feel free to paste the comment here Jon if it’s the truth.

  • Hopeless

    Came for the trailer, stayed for the fantastic score!


    One huge question I’d love to know, how does Clark Kent transform into Superman? ie.. How does he hide that suit and cape under his Daily Planet smart suit? Does it transform? Is it part of him? Does he have to run home and get it out of his wardrobe?

    I’ve not seen this question asked in interviews.

  • Jared

    Anyone else notice how in the scene where he’s being swallowed by the mountain of skulls his suit and cape are black like Zod’s?

  • Andrew Sanders

    Just one more wk to go,…prob end up as the longest wk ever!!
