      this looks really really good. especially since the poster is so cartoonish. i was not expecting much when i saw it b/c of how cheesy the poster was. that trailer looked pretty awesome.

        All right Bryan, this looks good. It meant even make up for Superman, (thinks about it) naw ;).

            Looks like a B-Movie.

              Hmm. Curious. Just happy it's not at all what I thought it would be :P

                  @bawnian-dexeus Two words: Christopher Nolan. His take on Batman is revelatory, and when something in Hollywood is even slightly unique, the studios feel the need to copy the sh*t out of it.

                    Saw this with Holmes. Looks hilariously bad.

                      @k-man@ejk1 I'm curious, and I am not going to sound like a hater, but did movie studios have a meeting in the past decade? First we are getting a realistic/fantasy approach of Snow White, and now the same with this. It's like with the superhero genre. They didn't pump out so much in the past and now they are coming out left and right like crazy (which is good mind you) and now it seems like we are getting the same treatment with fairy tales. I'm just really curious that all of a sudden all these stories I grew up with are now just getting the realism touch, and I can only assume Snow White and Jack-magical-beans won't be the last.

                        @combatmadness360 - That is normally very true, yes, but this film began shooting at the beginning of this year, which means a lot of these shots are definitely completed. If there are any that are unfinished they are probably pretty close.....and quite frankly, if I was Bryan Singer, this would be unacceptable. Its not like a couple of the shots are bad......they're ALL bad!

                        Perfect example, Look at the "heli" shot, pulling away from the bean-stock as they are all climbing up it.....good God, is there ANYTHING in that frame that looks even remotely real?

                        Look at :56 (when Nicholas Hoult is sitting there with that idiotic, crooked smile on his face starring aimlessly into space)....that shot is SO CLEARLY shot in front of blue screen that its shameful.

                        Or look at the shot of the giant running at the very end......It's not even exciting because it looks so ridiculous.

                        If you haven't already, watch this in 1080p on apple.com/trailers.....its a good laugh.

                        Quite frankly, this *looks* to be the worst presentation of a fantasy film since Eragon.....yes, THAT movie.

                        They have a lot of similarities, none of which I'm liking.

                        I know it seems like I am just ripping this apart (which I am) but the crazy part is that I WANTED this film to be amazing. I really did! I've been mentioning this film on my anticipated films of 2012 list over and over this past year.....but I'm realistic, and this looks like sh*t. I'm not afraid to call it how I see it.

                                  @k-man Well, they could still be doing the special effects, color correcting, and what not. To see the final visual product, you really have to go see the finished product. In an early trailer like this, some of the visual stuff you kinda gotta expect to be not as good as they will be.

                                        No, I'm not a big fan of Jack, right now.
