Don’t you just love it when social media loses its collective minds when it comes to entertainment, or anything to distract us from things going on in the world? If you are a fan of movies, a few days ago Facebook and Twitter was abuzz with the reveal of the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser. So enamored, one person made a funny clip splicing together the trailer with footage from Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar showing Matthew McConaughey’s reaction.
Then again you have a situation where an image or clip is leaked online to the public, much to the displeasure of the studio handling an entertainment property. This usually results in cease and desist notices and having videos yanked off of YouTube or other video site. So, instead of jumping on the bandwagon with everyone else posting a shaky cam version of Warner Bros.’s upcoming 2016 release, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I waited, knowing that the videos would either be pulled or eventually the studio would cow and release it officially (much to its displeasure, I’m sure).
On Monday, WB was to have a special free promo release at select theaters nationwide where people could see the two-minute teaser trailer on IMAX. But with the studio going ahead and putting it online officially it makes the free promo a moot point.
Nevertheless, Zack Synder’s follow-up to his new spin on Superman, Man of Steel, will make its debut in theaters worldwide on March 25, 2016. The trailer is very cryptic showing stark images accompanied by several different voices, including Jeremy Irons (who plays Alfred), Holly Hunter (a US Senator leading a crusade against Superman), plus what Ben Affleck will sound like as the Caped Crusader.
Handling story duties is Academy Award winner Chris Terrio, who penned Argo, and David S. Goyer, who has written such comic adaptations as Blade (and its sequels), helped conceptualize the story of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, and developed TV properties like Flashforward and Constantine.
Without further ado, the teaser for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.
