TRAILERS: The Huntsman, Now You See Me 2, Tarzan, Ben-Hur, X-Men

I have been working on posts and not a single one is done yet. Here are some trailers, but I am re-watching Man Of Steel--and being quite rewarded for it, so I highly suggest doing so before the big release this weekend, if you plan on going--and that is what I am getting up next; why?
One of the narrative points to look for in Man Of Steel are the religious ones; they are rather covered up in Man of Steel, and I think they will be more overt in Batman vs Superman, but I somewhat expect they will be denigrated which is why Nolan was asked to leave the project: Warner Bros has produced huge budget liberal films like Pan and Jupiter Ascending which didn't make any money, so now they are going to try and weave in the exact same liberal propaganda into a film they know people will go and see and try to get us to swallow it that way. Man Of Steel wasn't like that, but I bet Batman vs Superman will be; maybe not the whole thing, but there will be enough that it will be distasteful for me. 
Sadly, given that Christopher Nolan has been axed from the DC Comics universe, I think Man Of Steel will prove to be the superior of the two films; word that is leaking out suggests it's not very good (that shouldn't stop it from doing well financially) but they have tried packing in too much in too long of a film and there isn't enough back-story to link us into characters like Aquaman and Wonder Woman. I am also devastated to see Superman jumping into a bathtub with a naked Lois Land. Anyway, I have my ticket for this Friday (I'll be fasting for the day, so I'll be in a bad mood anyway, and I will keep that in mind) but I will let you know what I think of it as soon as I have seen it.
So, some trailers have dropped and here is the third trailer for The Huntsman: Winter's War; this deserves quite a bit of time, which I don't have at the moment, so we will re-visit this; stay tuned, you have seen the first bit of footage, but there is more to come.
I am excited for Now You See Me 2. This was a great first film, and I think this one will be even better; this is a great trailer:
Yes, there is always more than what is on the surface, I couldn't agree more. Which is why I am so dreading Tarzan, but hey, here it is:
Ugh.
Okay, so here is the first trailer for Ben-Hur. Now, if you are a fan of the original Ben-Hur, why, you are probably asking, would they go and re-make a perfectly good film? Because there is a message in it that we need to hear and re-learn for today:
When Morgan Freeman's character begins convincing Ben-Hur to take to the arena, we have heard that kind of talk before: 42, the Jackie Robinson story when Harrison Ford's character tells Jackie Robinson the difference he can make by being the only black player in the white baseball league; the same holds true in the chariot arena; why? Competition is the great leveler in the playing field of life, not socialism. I expect great things from this film, and at least the special effects are looking incredible! Now, the great X-Men; this is going to be pretty awesome too!
Okay, so, here we go and there should be a new post up late tomorrow evening. As always, thank you so much for your patience and for support!
