Sorry if I'm spamming the thread, but there's only three of us and I'm on top of this sh1t at the moment.

So, Valerian, Luc Besson's long-awaited spiritual sequel to The Fifth Element... looks a BIT familiar...

(I do like that the original version of the characters are on his jacket in the pic, it's a nice touch)

But they look exactly like Mass Effect.  And as much as I'd love to see a Mass Effect movie (and how easygoing I am about sampling in creative works as long as it DOES SOMETHING INTERESTING), I hope that the movie feels more like Fifth Element.

Which is weird because the original Star Wars borrowed heavily from the Valerian books, as did The Fifth Element (with some nice additions by the no-longer-with-us Moebius).    I would hate for the uniquely funky French vision of the future to be repalced with something common and mainstream.

Spam all you want. I think Spam gets a bad rap. It's meat in a can.....

Oh, wait....shift focus back to Luc. This is the first I'm hearing about this. Count me in.

I notice that I don't have any of the Valerian comics.  I thought I might.  This will not stand.  Hopefully we'll get some kind of new translated release or something if this movie proves popular.  Bandes Desinees pour la victorie!

Seriously, Valerian, Lego Batman teaser, and a reminder about the Nice Guys... not a bad spammy streak.

You know, one of my teachers at school had spam cans on his desk, I don't know how that started. he doesn't like the stuff, but that sort of became his thing.  As opposed to the more interesting thing, that he was a roadie for the Red Hot Chili Peppers.  I have so many questions about that now.

The Huntsman: Winter's War - Trailer 2

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2-_OQL9fBk


I was joking about eventual sequels to Snow White & the Huntsman (2012), but I never in a million years thought it would happen based on the under-performance of the flick. So, was there a groundswell by people to make this happen? This is the first I'm hearing about it. I never even saw the first trailer which apparently came out 4 months ago.

Re: Huntsman 2.  You really gotta admire the balls needed to make Snow White 2 without Snow White or the dwarves.  Yo uget the feeling that this is a studio in dire need of a franchise.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the spectrum, there's already a SECOND Lego Batman trailer, this time with Ralph Feinnes as Alfred.

Oh wow.  This looks... real.


This is reminding me of Final Fantasy The Spirits Within, when that movie felt "real."  But the difference is, well, 16 years of technological improvement.

But what killed FF:TSW is that it was just unsuited for a western audience.  If they can figure out how to tell a Hollywood-level story with these kinds of visuals, that could really shake things up.

Not a trailer, not even coming out, but oh my god... so close.  So close.  I'm heartbroken all over again.


"We would have been shooting it right now."  And shortly after Rickman died, Tim Allen said "you'll never know how close we came."  Sounds incredibly close.

Channing Tatum Joins ‘Kingsman’ Sequel

Quote
"I'm about to get all up in that Golden Circle," the actor tweeted Wednesday.

Channing Tatum has joined the cast of Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Matthew Vaughn’s sequel to his 2014 action-spy hit, the actor tweeted Wednesday.

Taron Egerton and Mark Strong are the returning castmembers and Colin Firth is due to return as well, although in what capacity remains shrouded. The movie is casting up as it heads into a production start in early May in London. Julianne Moore, Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal are among the new castmembers named on the roll call.

The upcoming sequel continues the adventures of a wayward tough (Egerton) from the wrong side of London who was taken in and, a la Pygmalion, turned into the best and brightest of British operatives.

Tatum’s role is unclear as he was offered several, according to sources. The parts ranged from supporting to cameos. He could even end up playing himself.

Elton John also is in talks to join the production, and his role is equally being kept secret.

    I'm about to get all up in that Golden Circle.

The Founder


I didn't think this could look that interesting, but it is.  Plus, Michael Keaton, Nick Offerman and John Carroll Lynch doing scenes together?  I wanna see that.  Plus, I don't know this story.

Okay, so I'm watching Fat Man on Batman and they're talking about Nathan Fillion's posters in Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol 2... some are goofy, but there's an Arkon poster, which was Marvel's Conan, but the big one is a poster that matches the Steve Jobs poster, but it's him as Tony Stark.  Clever.  I saw that when it broke but I just NOW realized "wait, wouldn't the biopic about Tony Stark be Iron Man 1?  Could the Tony Stark of that movie see his own movie?  Is the Marvel Universe becoming a hypercube or something?"

"WETAs doing the Power Ranger suits, how bad could they look?"  Uh, pretty bad.


This movie is going to be a real interesting train wreck.

It's called Adaptation Overindulgence Disorder, and its symptoms can strike anyone, from Transformers to Turtles and now, even unitards.  If this disease isn't stopped, we could soon see Veritech fighters with thousands of external moving parts, or a hyper-realistic Mickey Mouse.  We can't let that happen.  Without a cure in sight, our only hope is to prevent this disease from spreading:  by better matching creatives to content, by understanding that because something is popular enough to demand a remake means that not everything in the original is fundamentally broken, and through abstinence.  To say "no." "No, I will not add meaningless extra items to robots or suits."  "NO, I don't think a spaceship should be entirely jagged pointy shapes."  We're doing what we can, but it's a long, upward battle.  And you can help, simply by visiting "complicated does not equal better dot charity."

(Footage from the Transformers movies plays alongside that Sarah MacLaughlin song).

Brie Larson is in talks to play Captain Marvel.  And now there's some art, I'm not sure if it's official or not (it's from something called "Boss Logic"), of what that might look like.


Yeah, I could go for that.
