Come on, any of you seen Strike Back? They had the American guy playing the British guy and the Australian guy playing the American guy. This isn't a new thing with casting.

I'm a little meh about the new Divergent movie where the only handgun in the future are Rhino revolvers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gf3H...st=WL&index=69

I think that the main girl (Shailene Woodley, no idea what character is called) actually has a Mateba Unica 6 doesn't she?

Also, anyone else think that the rifles are dressed up TDI Vectors?

Yeah, I think those are Kriss guns dressed up. Cool though. Though not sure if the girl's black revolver is a Mateba. I think the Rhinos are easier to get a hold of.

Pretty sure it is, the clearest shot is at about 0:36 where you can see the open top frame and the step in front of the trigger guard between the barrel and the frame. I think the main good guy (just guessing he is good from the context) also has the Mateba at about 0:33.

As for them being harder to get hold of, they are but by no means impossible. There are definitely a few in movie armouries and they have appeared in recent films like Looper and The Maze Runner. My guess is that they are the exact same pistol as they all appear the have the same 4 inch barrel which I believe is relatively uncommon (also the best looking in my opinion, not a fan of vented ribs).

Hopefully, this movie will be better than Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection:

I just played a demo of Dragonball Xenoverse today at my local Gamestop. I played as a female Saiyan and fought against Vegeta. My main strategy to fighting was use a bunch of punches and kicks on him before blasting him with the Kamehameha.

And then Vegeta managed to use a point blank Final Flash on me.

Retconning Alien 3 and 4 out of existence? I'll take it.
