Premiere: Man of Steel


Man of Steel Australian Premiere


You can’t have normal conditions when Superman is in town, Sydney delivered a Supermoon, only fitting for the Australian Premiere of Man of Steel.

Henry Cavill walked the black carpet in Sydney together with Russell Crowe, who plays Jor-El in Man of Steel, and the film’s director Zack Snyder.

Lots of fans braved the bad weather to see the stars walk the red carpet and they were treated with a lot of special guests. Quite of few of the Supanova Supa-Stars walked the red carpet as well, including twins Oliver and James Phelps (Harry Potter’s Weasley twins), Bradley James (Merlin), Clare Kramer (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Bring It On), Eoin Macken (Merlin), Eve Myles (Doctor Who, Torchwood), Kai Owen (Torchwood) and more. It would have been great if Margot Kidder, the original Lois Lane, made it to the premiere as well, but unfortunately she didn’t show up.

A large group of fans were left disappointed as Henry Cavill did not walk the full black carpet but only started halfway. A few fans who travelled from Tasmania and Queensland especially for this event were left empty handed when the Man of Steel never even made it to them. Russell Crowe did go through the effort to greet all the fans at Event Cinemas possibly shouldn’t have bothered with poor attitude.

The local celebs did walk the full black carpet, including Jesinta Campbell in a daring Zhivago dress, Michelle Bridges and Steve Willis, Russell Crowe brought along quite a few Rabbitoh’s rugby players and there were were quite a few guys from the Home and Away cast, including Dan Ewing with Marni Little, Lincoln Younes, Demi Harman, David Jones-Roberts and Charlotte Best. Timomatic took a break from his new gig as a judge on Australia’s Got Talent.

With a red carpet event this size, even the photographers were struggling in the pit with only a small space allocated for a crazy amount of snappers.


The guests:

Henry Cavill (Immortals, The Tudors, The Cold Light of Day), Russell Crowe (Gladiator, A Beautiful Mind, Les Misérables) and Zack Snyder (300, Sucker Punch, Watchmen)

The film:

From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes Man of Steel, starring Henry Cavill in the role of Clark Kent/Kal-El under the direction of Zack Snyder.

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.

The film also stars four-time Oscar nominee Amy Adams (The Master), Oscar nominee Michael Shannon (Revolutionary Road), Academy Award winner Kevin Costner (Dances with Wolves), Oscar nominee Diane Lane (Unfaithful), Oscar nominee Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got to Do with It), Antje Traue, Ayelet Zurer, Christopher Meloni, and Academy Award winner Russell Crowe (Gladiator).
