The moody teaser begins with a slow pan through an early 20th century hospital with quick shots of surgeons sporting blood-stained clothes and hands. STORY: Steven Soderbergh to Direct Off-Broadway Play Starring Chloe Grace Moretz The promo then lingers on the operating room at the Knickerbocker Hospital, which serves as the show’s setting, as the following text flashes across the screen: “Surgery wasn’t always science.” A close-up shot of Clive Owen‘s character shows up at the end of the teaser. The ten-part series revolves around the 1900s New York City Knickerbocker Hospital and its surgeons, nurses and staff, who pushed the bounds of medicine in a time of high mortality rates and no antibiotics.

Next year comes another installment in the long-running Hollywood trend of dueling films from similar studios. Last year it was Snow White and the Huntsman and Mirror Mirror, and this year it’s Brett Ratner’s Hercules and Hercules: The Legend Begins from director Renny Harlin. Now we have a theatrical trailer for the latter which has been given a telling release date in early January, trying to get a leg up on Ratner’s summer release about the Greek hero. Kellan Lutz plays the title hero who must choose to flee with his true love, the Princess of Crete, or to fulfill his destiny by overthrowing the tyrannical rule of the king and restoring peace. This looks just like a bad 300, but with Hercules instead of the Spartans. Watch?
Here’s the theatrical trailer for Renny Harlin’s Hercules: The Legend Begins, originally from Yahoo:
Over the weekend when the “Man Of Steel” viral hit — “revealing” Michael Shannon‘s General Zod threatening the Earth — some uber nerds complained that he was speaking perfect English and didn’t have a Kryptonian accent or anything, proving that people will complain about anything. But for the rest of us, “Man Of Steel” is hopefully going to be the superhero highlight (we hope) of the summer, a movie that will flex both brains and brawn and this evening, a brand new trailer has arrived. Thus far, the actual story has been kept locked down, and all we know is that it’s gonna be emotions that get to Clark Kent, not kryptonite. (Somebody make this dude a mixtape). But this latest promo nails down the story a little more, while also providing plenty of spectacle. And perhaps most importantly, it continues to look like the best thing thatZack Snyder‘s ever done. Will that be the case when the final film arrives?
We’ll find out when “Man Of Steel” flies high on June 14th. Watch the trailer below.
