Next thing you know they will recreate the Wizard of Oz with a black cast. This new Hollywood is out of control!

Is that a double standard? I will call it a double standard. Also insane.

Yet another doomed attempt to translate Stephen King's brand of horror to cinema. Well, here's hoping it's not completely terrible.

You're just saying that because you're mad and jealous that Herman Munster isn't in this one. He died, get over it... Everyone knows Stephen King movies are still legit :p

I remember the Pet Sematary and Christine books being so much scarier than the 1989 and 1983 movie versions.

Why not create a super hero for him?


I think it is because we currently live in a society where it is more symbolic to destroy and usurp the original than it is to simply begin anew. Or maybe we've already thought of every conceivable superpower and now we have to overlap. Hell, theres even a Superdog! :lol:

 

 

I wish they would launch some new super hero property with Will Smith, where he has Superman type abilities but feels isolated and alone. Then he gets a clever PR guy with a dry sense of humor and falls for the PR guy's wife, who turns out to be his weakness. She could be played by Ashley Judd or Charlize Theron. I bet it would be a huge hit.

And weirdly, it wouldn't have to rewrite an existing IP! GENIUS! :thumbsup:

Every King book is scarier than its movie version, even the better ones like "Misery" or "Shawshank redemption". "Shining" is plenty creepy, but completely on its own right, since it's adaptation pretty much only in name.

The people whining aboput Johnson doing this are likely the same ones who are are demanding black Supermans and black James Bonds. LMAO

 

But, poor Rocky. He is just not 'black' enough for racists. EVIL.

I didn't have an interest in this film but now I'm quite intrigued and want to see it.

Hotel Artemis.

 

A nicely noir tale.

 

Jodie Foster as "The Nurse", running a high-security, membership only hospital for criminals in the near future with the aid of the orderly (Dave Bautista). One bank robber (Sterling Brown) dragging his brother there after things go wrong at a heist, amidst a city wide riot, and before long a mob boss (Jeff Goldblum) and the police also arrive.

With a few other characters played by the likes of Zachary Quinto, Sofia Boutella, and Charlie Day.
