New Man of Steel Trailer! Mind = Blown!

I saw the latest trailer for director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel last night on my phone while waiting in line to get into a screening of Oblivion. It blew my mind on a little handheld thingie, so I can only imagine how it'll play on the silver screen. I will say that, with each new assemblage we're getting from this flick, I'm feeling more and more confident that the WB has a winner on its hands. Lots of new footage here, with plenty of dialogue from Russell Crowe's Jor-El, and a genuinely poignant exchange between young Clark Kent and Kevin Costner as his foster father Jonathan.

Also, while I'm not 100% certain, I'm pretty sure this trailer gives us our first real taste of composer Hans Zimmer's new Superman theme, which has the unenviable task of standing in for John Williams' iconic score. And, I gotta say, not bad! As you know, I was initially reticent about getting yet another depiction of Superman's origins to add to the multitude of tellings it's already gotten, but seeing this, it becomes clear why the filmmakers felt it necessary to go back to formula and re-ground this most iconic of heroes for the modern generation. They already had my money, but this makes me even more willing to hand it over:
