Beacons of hope: Check out the new trailers for Man of Steel and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (video)
We've got sneak peeks of two of the most anticipated blockbusters of the year.
Wed Apr 17 2013
If you ever want to see film geeks go into Twitter hyperdrive, try releasing trailers for two big-name blockbusters in two days. When Warner Bros. unleashed the latest—and longest—sneak peek of their upcoming Superman reboot, Man of Steel, the response from fans was somewhere between feverishly hyperventilating and multiorgasmic. We can't say as we blame them, really; the film, out June 14, is one of our most anticipated movies of 2013 and this trailer is a great indication why.
The second preview—a teaser for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, the sequel to last year's megapopular YA-adaptation hit—has also had folks buzzing since its unveiling during Sunday night's MTV Movie Awards. Katniss Everdeen is back! Donald Sutherland and Philip Seymour Hoffman want to rein her in! Let the games begin…again!
The fact that both of these movies feature heroes who inspire and offer hope in a time of need means that their trailers couldn't have come at a better moment; frankly, we could all use a little more hope right now. Check 'em out for yourself. (And watch more trailers on Film's video page.)
