Don't care, X-Wings, dudes, they have X-Wings.

Specifically, X-Wings that look like they imitating an Avenger torpedo attack from WWII, but X-Wings.

Will Smith as Deadshot? At least they got the Australian guy to play Captain Boomerang.

I'm not one of those guys who'll get butthurt over race changes, but Will Smith is too much of a big name actor for small time character.

Yes, it's weird to see him in an ensemble cast, especially since he's not even going to play the biggest villain if the Joker is in there.

Maybe Ubisoft should slow down and debug the games their existing games first.

Or maybe have an entirely separate team develop the new game and another one fixing the bugs of the current one.

I wonder why they don't make a game set in Edo Period Japan.

I'm sure they'll get to it. This will be their fourth change in setting in as many years.

Bond movie announcement. And I can't say "specter" now without hearing Sean Connery in my head, "Schpectuh."

I'm surprised that he's still getting work. I thought his career was dead thanks to R.I.P.D.

Spartan198 12-05-2014 11:30 AM

If the Deadpool vs Batman episode of Super Power Beatdown is any indication of Deadpool's personality, I'd say Reynolds is a perfect fit.

It looks better than Terminator Salvation. And another plus is that Arnold is in it.

And I REALLY want to know who Matt Smith is playing.

Yes, it's weird they would do an EW cover with him and then leave him out of the trailer completely.

You can see him for about half a second, when John Connor is watching Reese get sent back through time. He is totally out of focus though, so I might be wrong.

Finally got around to seeing Lone Survivor. Luttrell may or may not have gotten details wrong or made them up like some people claim, but that was a damn good movie

Even though it's based on accounts, it's still a movie. Still good though

Can't take a moment to use guns appropriate for 1984, but will convince a multi-million dollar corporation to make them shoes from 1984.

A woman obsessing over shoes? Nah...

On a side note, though, I'm glad the actress they got at least looks like she could be Linda Hamilton's double.

http://i.kinja-img.com/gawker-media/...wrjtesiyxj.jpg

But I'm not too fond of how they're messing with the timeline. Only events after the point when the first movie took place would be altered, since 1984 is when the past and future converge. It's like making Back to the Future 4 and having Marty McFly sent back in time to before he went back the first time, then expecting the events in BttF 1 to play out exactly the same.

I really hope we never manage to get time travel working, because this is all really confusing and could really fuck the world up. :confused:

Edit: Here, this (unintentionally) explains just how confusing this all is.

So assuming the old T-800 filled Sarah Connor in with the details, she know she needs to rescue this random stranger, and then sleep with him?

That's another paradox that's never been cleared up: How was John Connor even born in the first place to send Reese back through time? Logically, he shouldn't exist in the pre-T1 future and therefor couldn't have sent Reese back in time.

Can't tell for sure as obviously I am just going by the trailer, but I do not think the gun choices are necessarily inappropriate as it is clear from several shots in the trailer that they use a time machine built in 1984 to travel forward to the present day like in "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles". The only guns that we know are from the 80's scenes are the ones that appear in scenes from the original movies. From my reckoning this means that they only weapons that are "period guns" are the Remington 1100, Barrett M82, Desert Eagle, and possibly the Remington 870 and CAR-15, and all of these are possible for that time.

Edit: Oh, and the Carl Gustav recoilless rifle in the scene in (I think) the 60s which again is period correct.

Why couldn't Guardians of the Galaxy be the highest grossing movie of the year? Not only was it a better movie, but had characters that were likable and it didn't stretch out its plot for another 45 minutes with mindless action.

It is the highest grossing film domestically though. Good writing often doesn't translate well, but 'splosions are universal.

It was a good year for Chris Pratt and Marvel.

Excalibur 12-10-2014 01:57 AM

A bunch of people I know didn't really like Guardians of the Galaxy because there's something about the humor they don't get.

I heard that Eli Roth made his own cannibal film that was inspired by Cannibal Holocaust. I have a feeling that the cannibals in his film killed and ate the main characters because they were annoying, unlikable assholes (which can describe eery single characters that appears in every one of Eli Roth's movies).

As well as Roth himself

Amanda Waller's been casted for Suicide Squad:

I think Octavia Spencer would work just as well, and she (most likely) won't have the complication of an ongoing TV series to work around.

The important part is that at least they didn't cast Oprah as Amanda Waller. Or else, we could have gotten this:
