I don't know what to do with that. Can anyone clue me in on Ready Player One? Is it good? What's it trying to be, pop culture the movie?

 

Has this been posted yet?

 

 

I've never been this stoked for a MCU film.

 

This has such a cool look. Bit too many moneyshots though. Shoulda saved Fenris and Surtur as reveals in the film, IMO.

Ready Player One is a fantastic book for anyone that grew up in the 80's. It remains to be seen whether it will translate into a good film. It's like a slightly more serious version of Wreck-It Ralph.

So the news embargo on the Dark Tower adaption/sequel-tease-for-series-thing has been dropped now....

Yet another remake of a great movie, but I think Roth can pull this off. Not so sure for Willis these days, but maybe he will channel his old badass self.

Looks rubbish, as usual with Roth.

I'm not really sold on Bruce Willis as Dr. Kersey. He seems like an action hero. Admittedly Charles Bronson had a similar problem with respect to the original adaption being a classical cowboy type but, imo, to a lesser degree.

The original book is - from what I've read about it as I've not read them - not really about action or cathartic/exploitative violence but hopelessness and desperation. The first Bronson film gets a bit of that, the later films not so much. (Can't speak to the Kevin Bacon led, James Wan directed adaption of the second book DEATH SENTENCE).

Pretty much. The trailer does feel as if it's completely oblivious to the underlying rage and desperation that is present in the character and story, as well as the sheer queasiness inherent in the premise, in great part thanks to the choice of AC/DC as a soundtrack to it all. Which is, again, the usual story with Eli Roth.

Yeah, no links to pirated material please, even if it's been made available on YouTube.

DuckTales is back and it was glorious. Better than ever. Really great distraction in light of the brownshirts taking over yesterday's news cycle.

New Mutants Trailer expected to be a loose adaption of the Great Demon Bear story.

Looks like a very heavy-handed and generic horror flick, really.

I think it's intentional (although it may backfire ) to distinguish it from the other Marvel x-men films

Certainly intentional, and going the way Logan, Legion and Deadpool have of trying to merge the superhero genre with elements or aesthetics from other genres. It just feels a lot more pedestrian and formulaic from the trailer than these three did, however.
