Behold the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END trailer - in HD 1080

Hey folks, Harry here... the pirate event from Sunday was fairly awesome. We had wenches and pirates of all ages. I had them being wenchy & piratey - and we even had a real life Scottish pirate in a skirt... I mean Kilt. The Wenches were yummy and the wee pirates were cute as hell - including my own nephew. But the, had to be 4 at the oldest, girl that brandished her sword while screaming "RRRRRRRRRR" at the crowd - she was best. The gorgeous print of the first film was appreciated - and getting to see the trailer twice in a row that big was a real delight. And the fun extra that AICN provided was exactly that. A fun extra. That said - the new trailer is almost online - hopefully gorgeously. So here ya go - this is where it'll be:

    I was at a local pub and it was on during a commercial break for Dancing with the Stars. It's sad to go to a bar and find basketball on one tv and Dancing with the Stars on the rest. Although...there's more pro athletes in the Dancing show, anyway!

    russian trailer --


    Yes, I saw it 10 minutes after it hit YouTube, but ya know what - that shit ass version - where you couldn't understand any of the dialogue - where at the moment of the whirlpool cannon exchage - you couldn't see the hundreds of ships - because the visual quality was ass. And this is a trailer that really deserves to be seen and heard the best way possible.

  • March 20, 2007, 12:02 a.m. CST

    Well, its ok I suppose...

    That was awesome...

    by Darth Thoth

    Especially considering I have to be one of 25 people on this planet who has yet to see either of the first two movies. And I call myself a geek, ha! What a joke am I! Well, this time around I plan to make sure to see both 1 & 2 on DVD in time to catch this latest installment on May 25th. It looks good. Goodnight everyone.

    by Zarles

    Fourth time I've seen it in the past hour, and it just keeps getting better. First two times on my 32" widescreen HDTV, and now twice online. The swordfight between Sparrow and Davey Jones on the mast of the Pearl fucking OWNS my ass. Excuse me while I grease up and bend over. Hurry the hell up, May!

    yeh it looks kick-ass....

    by Seph_J

    however Spidey 3 is the king of the summer. I thought pirates 2 was immensely better than 1, so if this improves on 2 by the same degree, it will certainly be fucking cool.

    At least one of the summer flicks is looking big. Spidey can't ever really get this epic looking I guess, and Transformers is too modern to be this large I suppose.

    yeah, that was pretty fucking thrilling...

    by iamnicksaicnsn

    I have to say. Damn, hope it's better than 1 and 2. 2 was better than 1, but they both had too many areas where things just got dragged out, so hopefully they'll take care of that in this one.

  • March 20, 2007, 12:47 a.m. CST

    As long as there's....

    by seanny_d

    no pointless sequence like cannibal island. "Let's take an already long movie and stretch it out by another 20 minutes by completely diverging from the main plot to have a cooky scene with a bunch of cannibals!" <br><br>It would have been a fun DVD extra, but as a theatrical cut, I felt it completely ruined the pace of the movie. <br><br>Personally, I'm hoping for more swordfighting in this one. That one final three-way fight was awesome, but I needs more sword fighting. And it looks like we're gonna get some with Davy and Jack atop a ship.

  • March 20, 2007, 12:55 a.m. CST

    Where are the damn Chinese Pirates??

    by apass

    all I see is the same old stuffs from the 2nd movie again, n is the whole moive shot entirely in the wide open sea? There is nothing oriental in the trailer even though they're supposed to be going to china issit?

  • March 20, 2007, 12:58 a.m. CST

    Except for chow yun fat-huh apass

    by skydog

    he's kinda oriental.

    This looks cool. Pirates uniting from the four corners. This director has such great visual flair, I love the imagery.

  • March 20, 2007, 1 a.m. CST

    by DinoBass

    He has a little of Fincher's dark side along with Spielberg's blockbuster chops. He keeps impressing me with each movie he makes. Wouldn't mind him taking a crack at The Hobbit.

  • March 20, 2007, 1:06 a.m. CST

    Yes, he would be great for The Hobbit.

    The dumbest thing...

    by jimmy rabbitte

    ...Disney could do is make Harry pull this trailer off the site. This type of following and word of mouth only adds to the lore of a movie. Of course the suit-wearing idiots have to love or understanding for the fan experience. I guess that's why films don't *seem* to take hold they Star Wars did back in '77. All of the joy has been litigated out of it... I wonder if Bay had a hand in this as well...

  • March 20, 2007, 1:38 a.m. CST

    Hmmm, seems like they find Jack, eh?

    by Vi

    I hoped there would be at least a little suspense as to whether they rescue Jack from the dead or not. The trailer kind of blows it all out there.

  • March 20, 2007, 1:50 a.m. CST

    fuck everything - that looks fucking great

    by slappy jones

    I cannot fucking wait...I hope it poohs all over spiderman 3, then ejaculates right into the face of transformers all the while dragging harry potter who is tied to its tow bar across gravel.....and then takes a piss on bourne for good measure...

  • March 20, 2007, 1:53 a.m. CST

    Why deny what everyone already knows?

    by Literarywanderer

    How could they not advertise Jack's return? The general movie goers only see the Pirate flicks for him.

  • March 20, 2007, 2:08 a.m. CST

    Gore Verbinski

    by Fernwick_

    Man, I remember and you can look up my old post, when I said he would be a great director, and I got the crap tore outa me for it, but The Ring, POTC, and you could SEE this guy knew how to direct a film :) Ah, to be right, I do think he should do some kinda Superhero Movie... give HIM the Spiderman franchise when Raimi is done, just keep Toby, I dont buy him leaving, just give him 20 million like they gave Eddie Murphy for Pluto Nash... and he'll do it, and you KNOW Spidey will make some cash, hell give him 30 million, come on its Spiderman!

  • March 20, 2007, 2:10 a.m. CST


    by El Scorcho

    Can't get excited about it, which makes me really sad. 1st flick was incredibly fun, but DMC just wasn't very good. This trailer gets a big "meh" from me. I want to be looking forward to it, but I'm not. Maybe the lowered expectations will help.

  • March 20, 2007, 2:23 a.m. CST

    The Dead Mans Chest trailer was also great...

    by GravyAkira

    And the actual film was very mixed in my opinion. This trailer kicked all kinds of ass though. You cant fuck up a film with Johnny Depp, Chow-Yun Fat, and 200 million dollars can you? Please dont! Go Spidy!

    The trailer felt longer than the second movie, and that piece of uninspired dreck lasted an eternity. This one looks to be even longer and more pointless than the second one. Between this epic sedatiive, and the fucking lamest costume/villain ever put to film in Spiderman 3 (Harry, aka "The Night Surfer" aka "The Cockboarder"), this summer already looks disappointing...

    I feel nothing but sadness and pity for people whose lives have become so jaded and joyless that they are not made giddy as schoolgirls by trailers such as this and the Spidey 3 one. It is truly a grand time to be a geek.

  • March 20, 2007, 7:18 a.m. CST


    by Leopold Scotch

    You're absolutely spot on. That's one of the best trailers I've seen for a long, long time, and opinion is one thing, but there's no way you can call that trailer "boring". It's objectively untrue, so not only are they whiners, they are also liers. Pah!

    Boring trailer

    by NightArrows

    Yes, a trailer can be boring, and this trailer was boring. This looks like more of the same. Same fights, nonsense, same overly long meandering plot. Part 2 was incredibly slow at times, with fights that were ridiculous and pointless. One thing that did look interesting was the fight between Jack and Squid Dick, though I'm sure there will be a runaway ferris wheel that they get tangled up in while fighting a rabid shriner at the same time, or some other such bullshit. Go and enjoy the movie, make love to the trailer for all I care. This series peaked at the first film, it was fresh and Depp's schtick wasn't THE show. Pirates should have stayed a solo affair, instead of become a cash"epic".

  • March 20, 2007, 8:22 a.m. CST

    Orlando Bloom

    by Lost Prophet

    is a bad actor that got astronomically lucky with Legolas. If he never appears on screen again it would not be a loss.

  • March 20, 2007, 8:23 a.m. CST

    by Sepulchrave

    simply because I love ships and sea mythology and spent my entire childhood reading about Odysseus, Sinbad, Jason, the Kraken, A Wizard of Earthsea, Scylla and Charybdis, Erik the Viking and so on. These films are just great. That whirlpool looks awesome.

    Because I'm not in the slightest bit gay. BUt seeing that trailer does make me tingly in my funny bits. Looking forward to a dizzying conclusion to a fun (if not terribly substantial) ride.

  • March 20, 2007, 8:38 a.m. CST

    Darth Maul's Death...

    by HeWhoCannotBeNamed

    ...was absolutely ridiculous. It just didn't make since for this simpleton. Granted I now hate Star Wars with ounce of my being, but I thought Maul should have been a force to be reckoned with thoughout that horrible prequal trilogy. I have wasted prescious bandwidth speaking of SW. Ugh.<P>I am truly excited about this mindless popcorn flick. I even enjoyed the second installment despite all the hate out there. True old fashioned fun. Sure it's simple and sometimes, if done right, it works. I loved The Sea Hawk, Captain Blood, The Black Swan and so forth. Swashbuckling is the shit. Pirates rule. Ninjas drool.<P>Bourne is the man Slappy Jones!

    Ridiculously Good

    by Hyphin

    ...i find that this is my most anticipated film for the summer. It's not the trailer that did that, mind. I just loved part 2 as much as part 1. Yeahp, I loved all two and a half hours of it. I was sad it ended. I dont get it. I thought geeks werent of that 'this movie is long' camp. You want the truth. I swear to God, I have NEVER thought a movie was too long and was waiting for it to end. Just never. I dont know why or if that makes me wierd. I just never have. <p>And Orlando, if you read this page, know that I actually extremely like what you do. Loved everything except Troy, but as someone said above, that wasnt your fault. Also, dont worry, Im not gay.

  • March 20, 2007, 10:02 a.m. CST

    please not this again

    by Lost Prophet

    Roland is right- <p>It is really simple: he didn't kill Anakin because he is a complete and utter cunt. He is actually one of the biggest arseholes in film history. As proved by his behaviour in the rest of the series- sending Luke off to kill his own father, not telling Luke that he was trying to shag his sister, deliberately fucking about in the desert to ensure that the Empire had enough time to kill luke's adopted family etc.<p>Leaving Anakin was totally in character.

    (singing) 'Well I have spent, all me tin, on the lasses drinking gin, and across the western ocean I must wander!' Really cool stuff. Pirates are just fun and will come out big this summer. LOVED the Davy and Jack battle (Davy hauling him up one-handed)...and Cutler Beckett....oooh, he's a nasty one. I'm sure he'll come to a appropriate end. But Barbossa is probably going to be the coolest thing about the movie. I've said it before...but HE is a Pirate's Pirate!!!! "Four of you have tried to kill of you succeeded.."

    I just hope AWE has a discernible plot.

    by CreasyBear

    The cannibal island side-trek is indefensible, unless the defense is "It would be neat." The first Pirates really did drag a little, because the writers had to work their way around their own plot, but at least it made sense. Pirates II was not much more than a bunch of individual "Wouldn't it be cool if there was a ___?" ideas patched together with cinematic duct tape. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather see any Pirates movie over pretentious, no-action melodramas, but I'm hoping AWE delivers on all fronts, not just the eye-candy level.

    by HeWhoCannotBeNamed

    I too think PotC is a far better set of films than SW. Certainly not cinematic masterpieces to be placed on some pedestal, but entertaining fare nonetheless. I don't speak of SW too much since people really get crazy about it, however your "pretentious, no-action melodramas" description is spot on. BTW, love your screen name. Ever see the first Man of Fire with Glenn?

    minderbinder's right

    by CreasyBear

    Even picky movie-lovers have to admit that it looks fun. And I'm more interested in this summer's line-up than any other in recent memory for big-budget fun. Bourne, O-13, TFers, Pirates, Spidey, Harry Potter, and if I'm feeling generous, FF-2 and Stardust. There are usually only 3 must-see movies per summer.

  • March 20, 2007, 11:04 a.m. CST


    by HeWhoCannotBeNamed

    Just asking for your comparison thoughts. Worth seeing IMHO, however I think the new version blows it away. However, Glenn's portrayal was awesome. At least is was to me when I was in sixth grade. A dark movie in the eyes of an elementary punk. I would buy it today if it were released, however I prefer Tony Scott's remake. Sometimes remakes can turn out good. However, there are so many other films out there to enjoy, I would recommend many others before picking up the Glenn version. Take care.

    by grievenom

    Yes, it looks like more of the same. Some are getting hard-ons because of that. Personally I don't care. More of the same means another endless, pointless annoying experience, and dorks trying to talk like pirates. Yo-Ho-Hum.

    Re: Obi-Wan not killing Anakin

    by SilentP

    You know, it's probably not that easy to kill someone you love, even if it's a mercy kill. If your brother was dying a slow, painful death of cancer, could you just pull the plug on him so easily? Obi-Wan was probably just thankful that the fire would do him in soon, so he wouldn't have to.<br>That said, I still prefer the version of the scene I remember reading about when Lucas talked about the duel one of those times long before the prequels were made. He said something like, Anakin falls into the lava, and then the Emperor's ship shows up, and that's why Obi-Wan has to run off without getting a chance to check whether Anakin's really dead. I don't know why he changed that.

    Pirates 2 should have been a standalone film...

    by dr_buggerlugs

    ...the thing I hated about Pirates 2 was that the first film was a great, entertaining pirate adventure and rather than just worry about creating another great pirate adventure they decided to go all TRILOGY on our asses - 2.5 hours and no ending? What shit's that? Rather than hamfisting some big over-reaching arc that never existed in the first place, they should have just had another stand-alone Cap'n Jack adventure featuring more pirate shenanigans and then go and do a third, a fourth, fifth etc etc - that ambition ruined DMC because it just spent all it's time going nowhere rather than just worrying about making a great film. But no, all of a sudden, POTC is now A TRILOGY when it was never intended as such. POTC2 should have been it's own film same as POTC3.

    What is with this Cannibal Island hating mess?

    by Frijole

    They HAD to get off the open water at that point... they had to go SOMEWHERE... so why not somewhere where something entertaining happened? They had to go somewhere dangerous to show just how terrifying the Kraken being after them was. So when an island of cannibals was the closest option AND preferable to the Kraken... then you know the Kraken is pretty damn powerful. It would have been too convenient for them to have been right by Tortuga (as well as lame since that wouldn't convey Jack's fear of the Kraken). Plus, they needed to stop long enough for Will to catch up with them (from a story standpoint... not that they knew he was coming). I really don't get you people...

    I hate that movie so much. Lucas needs to die for that. The only good thing about that movie was Duel of the Fates. But that's only 'cause Lucas doesn't know how to write music, so he couldn't go back and fuck that part up. Stupid cunt. And yeah, we only saw a few seconds of the swordfight between Jack and Davey Jones, I'm sure it's much longer and much more exciting once you see the film. I have a feeling it will kick ass.

    Cannibal Island

    by ProfGriffin

    Besides the rollicking fun of the bone cage and the jack sparrow shish ka bob, there was a purpose of the cannibel island. According to screenwriters Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio, it was important place to reunite characters, and what Gibbs says about the Cannibals thinking Jack is a god trapped in human form is somehow important. The 'trapped in human form' specifically is what they claimed was the most important thing. Hey...whatever. It was fun.

But you summed it up pretty nicely.<p>Of course, looking at Obi that way (and Yoda, who was complicit in the whole plot) really does elevate Luke at the end of Jedi. Here's a guy who rises above the manipulations of others, basically tells both factions claiming mastery of the Force to fuck right off, and engages in a little emotional manippulation of his own to win the day.<p>That Luke's a smart fucker by the end of the only trilogy that matters.

    How is it more "cutesy"?

    by Frijole

    Aside from giving Jack a BIT more comic relief action than in the first movie (which I think was neccessary to keep the character likable given the fact that he does some extremely bastardy/dastardly things in DMC... if he wasn't so damn likable, in part thanks TO his comic moments, he'd be a villain in the movie) explain to me how the second movie is any more "cutesy" than CotBP?

Much like Andy Serkis gave life to Gollum, Bill Nighy is so OBVIOUSLY Davy Jones.

    You're all probably a bunch of crybabies that are worried about your kid having bacteria and a lethal boo boo. Look, Purel crowd, Obi-Wan's best friend turned on and murdered the entire Jedi order. That ain't right. He lied to Luke about his father because he didn't want Luke to focus on revenge and get himself killed when he needed to train. It was still a lie, but it was not done to harm, but to protect. The problem is that by applying moral relativism in the Prequels, EVERYONE looks like a great guy next to the Jedi. The Emperor didn't go far enough if you ask me.

    the Anakin and Obi Wan duel would have been better

    by Doc_Strange

    If Lucas didn't edit the shit out of it. If anyone had seen the Back in Black thing for Target stores, they showed a shit load of footage showing Kenobi being on the offensive and more wide angle shots of the duel. As it was, I think the Duel was great but the duel between Obi, Maul and Jin was easily the best. If they were to make more SW films, they seriously need to not edit down the duels so much as we all lose something as I'm sure there was a lot more footage in the duel with jin, maul, and obi as well.

    by pjdon

    Off the subject but i sent this to Harry and he didn't put it up. Shia LaBeouf said in an interview with UK mag Total Film that they have actually built a mobile phone that can change into a robot for Transformers and that it is called Sound Wave. It's on pg53, check it out. A lot of you will probably complain that his is too hip or contempary or something but i'm sure a cassette recorder was just as 'hip' in the 80's. This seems like a logical disguise for a spy robot and i personally can't wait to see an actual mobile transform, no cgi or nothing.

    FYI, Takara is making a Soundwave MP3 player. Yes, it transforms. Yes, pressing eject reveals a memory card reader. Yes, it is quite possibly the nerdiest thing ever. Yes, I want one. They are also making a G1 Optimus Prime transformable iPod dock.

    Of course there is. This is HER story... of all the characters so far, she's in the midst of the biggest character arc. The series began with her singing "Yo-Ho-Yo-Ho..." as a child on the ship and I GUARANTEE it will end that way as well... Her sailing off into the sunset, now a pirate herself and captain of her own ship... Take it to the bank.

    Duck Marth Faul!

    by David Lazarus Long

    The best lightsaber battle of all time is the Luke/Vader fight. Specifically the moment under the stairs when Vader mentions Leia and Luke goes nuts and rushes him, the music swells, the camera follows the glowing blades through the bluish darkness of the the Emperor's throne room... <p> Man, it gets me six kinds of emotional just THINKING about it. Sure, Maul hopped around and did backflips and whatever. But there was no more heart in that fight than in any of the entire collective 400 minutes worth of prequels. It was cool when I was in seventh grade, but looking back on it I just see a bunch of trite garbage loosely strung together with words like "Jedi" and "the Force", and that saber fight was a bunch of horseshit because nothing leading up to it made me give two shits about the people fighting it. <p> Rolande, in regards to your charge against Obi-wan being one of the "most Evil Motherfuckers in the History of the Galaxy", I have to admit that you make a pretty sound case. The only flaw I can find is that I always kinda figured that when Lucas wrote the whole bit about "I knew your father, Vader killed him, etc etc", that he himself didn't know he was going to make Vader be his father, or even Leia be his sister. Therefore, "from a certain point of view" would be more Lucas covering his own ass and not neccessarily the machinations of Darth-wan Kenobi. This of course is based on nothing but the rantings of my own ass. It'll be weird watching the OT again with the idea of Ben being an evil scheming fuckwad running through my head... =P<p> And on a topical note, this movie looks t3h r0x0rz. I've been waiting for a damn year to see Han get unfrozen-errr...

    Praising POTC / bagging out SW PT

    by BendersShinyAss

    How can you guys bitch and moan about things that should have been done in Star Wars but then sing naked around the HD tape of Pirates? Some of the issues you guys have are just miraculously overlooked when it comes to pirates. I want to know why Orlando Bloom steals the key quetly while Davy Jones sleeps but then in the next scene talks about the time coming when he will fight and kill Davy Jones. The guy could have sliced and diced the fucker up in his sleep just a second ago. Not even the cathedral organ woke him up when he slipped on it.

    by David Lazarus Long

    it's just that I'd rather not sit around twiddling my thumbs for 3 minutes while my 3ghz processor struggles to do what Media Player Classic does instantly on a regular basis: play crystal clear video! <p> That's why Quicktime gives MPC a rimjob for quarters at the carwash. And fuck that squirrely little "Q" they want to stick in the corner of my screen. I fuckin' hate that little Q. What the fuck is it for? Just in case I decide I want to sit around for 3 minutes while it loads whatever piddly ass options it has (unless you want to shell out $49.99 and get the PRO version of a terribly clunky program). I'd rather just not install the bastard, but then I wouldn't be able to see ANY of this "1080p goodness" because it's ONLY in Slowtime. <p> It should only be used if you have a Mac, from whence the program was spawned and where it should remain, because on a Mac, like ITunes, it runs great. I, like 90% of computer users, have a PC. I'd rather not have some hackjob port of a program slowing my shit down while I read 8 different tabbed articles. <p> I likes my PC just fine, but it has enough flaws without Mac ports gunking up the works. Just like I like the OT without the prequel gunk clogging up the works. (oh, and he brings it back around to SW- Zing!)

    by David Lazarus Long

    It's funny, but it wasn't until recently that I've been getting so frustrated with Quicktime. I just realized what it was. See, I didn't mind that QT takes 3 minutes to load because I only had DSL and everything took forever anyway, so who cares? Now that I have fiber, that 3 minutes is quite noticeble when everything else I do on the internet it essentially instantaneous. <p> BTW, if you have the ability to get fiber, GET IT. NOW!

    Instead it was just too unremarkable for the most part. If it had been shit it would have been easier on me waiting all those years for it. I hate the fact that Singer said he wanted to do a sequal because he said the origin story had been overdone. Instead he basicly re-made the original. I want a Superman which reflects the time in which it is made like the 70's version did. I want a new superman! I don't think the completely invunrable, bullets bouncing, lifting things superman really works in film, there is no tension. I want a more dynamic man of steel who has to put a bit of sweat into fighting crime. I want bullets to at least hurt him a bit, not bounce off his eyeball. And I want a bit of character, SR was so souless.

    by nonsensical

    How can you claim that Bayformers and Pirates will make more and do better than Spidey 3 and Shrek becuase they are too close together and will cancel each other out. Spidey is May 4th. <p> Shrek is the 18th. Spidey has two whole weeks uncontested before Shrek comes out. If anything Shrek might hurt Pirates which comes out on May 26th. As for Bayformers which comes out on July 4th, this film has to compete with two films just five days before it comes out Pixar's Ratatoulle on the June 29th, Live Free or Die Hard also on the 29th, and then if it takes the top spot after the long weekend it will loose it the following week to Harry Potter on July 13th. Nevermind the fact that some movie goers actually wait until the Fourth of July holiday week to see the movies that have come out since Memorial Day and if you look at the films being released then you'll see Bayformers has some strong competition that pretty well reaches everyone. <p> Hostel: Part 2, Ocean's 13, and Surf's Up on June 8 <p> Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, and Nancy Drew on June 15 <p> DOA: Dead or Alive, and Evan Almighty on June 22 <p> Live Free or Die Hard and Ratatouille on June 29 <p> Sure, "you" might not want to see any of these movies at all, or you may want to see them on or near the day they come out, but not everyone does that. If you look at the position of each of the summer films, Spidey 3 is the only one in the best position to make money and will likely be the only one that is number one at the box office for more than a week. Well at least until Harry Potter which should hold the top spot until it faces the Simpson's on July 27th. <p> Seriously, look at what is coming out this year ans when it come out. Pirates might be hurt a little by Shrek, but I doubt it. Bayformers might not be hurt by the films that bookend it, but given that one of those is a Pixar film and the other is Harry Potter, I seriously doubt it will have the power to stand up to the competition, especially once reviews start coming in and point out how bad the story is.

    The Superman debate...

    by nonsensical

    Singer doesn't get Superman. That's the reason he made the film he did. The complaint that there was no origin isn't valid if you look at the origin in a different way. <p> Look at Batman Begins. It gave us an origin story and a great film because it took the premise and ran with it. Superman Returns should have been Superman Birthright. If you read that novel reintroduction of Superman it gives you a more human Superman, it gives you a character that has to work to earn the trust of the people and it establishes Luthor as a real villian that has more up his sleeve than a few real estate schemes. Singer missed the ball on this and he'll do it again in the next film. The issue is that he just doesn't understand Krypton's last son. He never did. <p> If he did then there would have been more fun in the movie and scenes where Clark throws a ball too far for the dog to go after would have seen the dog taking to the air after the ball and returning to play rough with his master. Yes, I'm saying that Krypto would have been in the film and geeks would have loved that "a boy and his dog" stuff that Krypto always has brought to he story and the character.

    Why Superman Returns fails.....

    by BendersShinyAss

    It's like a fan film. it doesn't sit on it's own. It wants to be all knew, but locks itself down in the roots and production design of the originals. It had no breathing room. I enjoyed the dazzle of watching superman again on the big screen... but I haven't seen it since. I just don't care too. Thats a disaster for a superman film. If Superman 3 was on tv right now, or someone handed me the dvd and said 'lets watch it' I'd give up the next 2 hours for it. Superman returns doesn't evoke that emotion in me. I think the studio went safe and it ultimately didn't pay off. Say they had of gone with kevin smith, or even JJ Abrams scripts then we would have had GOOD action films. Kevin smith's would have been a solid superman action film. Just superman, nothing else. Abrams would have been a hit and miss affair, re-inventing the whole mythos of superman past through flashbacks, cut with a battle taking place. It would have been interesting, maybe even good. but it cuts out Donners film. thats obviously a problem. <p> Personally.... i say give it Ratner. hahahahaha. I'm not joking.

    Superman Returns was a mix tape/love letter...

    by Childe Roland

    ...from Singer to Donner. And in being that, I guess it was fine. But as a movie, it bored me up until it disturbed me. Then it bored me again.<p>Any exhibition of Supermanliness in that movie was basically a beat-for-beat homage to another previously existing moment in either Superman I or II.<p>In fact, the plot is essentially a greatest hits compilation from those movies: Luthor plans to use platetectonics to cash in on the real estate market? Check. Superman saves crashing plane/falling aircraft with Lois on board? Check. Superman is depowered? Check. Superman gets repowered and exhibits abilities completely inconsistent with previous in-film portrayals of the character (in the I & II, we're talking time travel, cellophane S and white hand we're talking a sudden immunity to the thousands of tons of Kryptonite he's lifting above his head while another piece of it is broken off in his side). Check-a-roonie. Femme fatale has a change of heart that fucks up Lex's plans? Check.<p>The only original elements that Singer brought to the dance are just creepy or weird. Superman uses his X-Ray vision to peep on Lois and her new family. Wow. That's not uncomfortable or out of character at all. And Superman has a kid.<p>Actually, if the kid had been developed one iota, it might have been a worthwhile addition to the mythos. But the kid was literally a plot device. They should've named him MacGuffin. Seemed totally shoehorned into the picture.<p>Personally I think the kid was Singer's way of saying his love for Donner isn't homoerotic (I didn't see all the gay undertones in this movie that so many others claim are present), but rather like a son's love for a father. It's a nice sentiment, but it doesn't make for a good or even particularly interesting Superman movie.

    Superman Returns was fucking dreadful

    by Lost Prophet

    no way around it. And I am forced to agree with Brokeback on this, which is terrible. Not becasue it was overly reliant on Donner but because it was slow, badly acted (paging Kate..), full of stupid plot holes, and overlong (which is not something I thought I would ever write/say/type/whatever)<p>regarding this perspective argument on Obi Wan- this just doesn't stand up- if it is assumed that he becomes more of a cunt now we know the whole story, then the appropriate phrase is "more of". It is only because he is such a vile character in the OT that this is even relevant. Most of it I can deal with- not telling Luke about his parentage, deliberately letting Luke's family die etc, but the really cunty thing is the whole setting the farm boy up for incest. Every wasy I look at it that is just a despicable thing to do. <p>Mind you, having said that, perhaps he just assumed that incest was the bored yokel farmkid equivalent of board games. Stick to scrabble, kid, it's less psychologically damaging. <p> and he is such a cunt that he would have kicked padme's back door in and stolen her wallet on the way out.
