Man of Steel starring Henry Cavill and Amy Adams coming to 3D Blu-ray in November
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has announced that the newest Superman film entitled MAN OF STEEL (click the link to read the review), from director Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Russell Crowe and Kevin Costner, will be available in a 3D Blu-ray combo pack as well as a Blu-ray combo pack on November 12, 2013. There will also be a 3D Limited Collector’s Edition, which features the theatrical version of the film in 3D hi-definition, hi-definition and standard definition, and also includes a limited release metal “S” glyph with lucite glass stand. Snazzy.
Here’s the official synopsis for MAN OF STEEL: A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.
I’ve mentioned before how much I dislike Zack Snyder as a director, but how can I resist watching a Superman film? I can’t, so I’m going to have to suck it up and hope that its better than I think it will be. Though to be honest, MAN OF STEEL didn’t do fantastic at the box office, only grossing over $289 million. Sure, that’s a lot of money, but when you’re budget is $225 million, that’s not so great. Maybe Joss Whedon can give Zack Snyder some pointers, if Warner Bros. makes the bad decision of letting Snyder direct the next DC comic film. Check out the MAN OF STEEL trailer below.
