The first trailer for HBO’s F451 adaptation has dropped, and, eh, I don’t know. I don’t want to extrapolate (or attempt to, rather) too much from a teaser. However, my reticent-at-best feelings persist.
Hit the jump for some first look images, too.
Oh man. F451, perhaps one of my top five novels of all time, is getting an HBO movie adaptation. I knew this. However, I also now know that the movie is going to have significant talent in the form of Michael B. Jordan and Michael Shannon.
Another week, another batch of Cable casting news. This week’s frontrunner? Michael Shannon! Do I buy it? Yes! But! Only because the movie’s very writers have teased an announcement is coming soon.
Man, General Zod has a serious hate-stiffy for old Clark. Homeboy makes it pretty clear in this trailer he is willing to trash tons of us squishy homosapiens just to get old Kent out of hiding. The result? A pretty fucking wicked trailer, replete with all sorts of ‘splosions.
What the fuck is going on here? Zod can travel all the way to Earth, but homeboy can’t broadcast a clean transmission?
From now on, that is what I’m calling the region of every superhero’s outfit that gently holds their package. Their dong cradle. ‘Cause as you’ll see, Supes’ outfit is gingerly cradling his super-children. Just waiting to doff the outfit, and unfurl the silent terror. I’m not sure what I’m talking about anymore. I just like using the phrase “dong cradle.” Try it.
Michael Shannon has been cast as General Zod in Zack Snyder’s Superman flick, which has been given the official title, “Man of Steel.”
