Wow, someone didn't read the article where it said that it was Dench's seventh time as M. Glad she's back!
@Messenger - Sorry, dude, but you've come to the wrong site if you want it to be clean. Don't get me wrong, I could do without the drama too, but most of the posts on sites are going to attract comments from the people who are going to do nothing but say negative things in the comment section. Especially this site. The ones that I like occur when I see people talk about how excited they are when a certain movie is going to be made and the closer the film gets to its release date, those same people talk about how bad the movie is going to be in order to be the person who said "I told you so" if the movie does blow even though they did not have a clue themselves... at least that's my theory.
Is it just me or am I the only one who noticed that they ALREADY REPORTED THIS! Back in mid-December, they had already reported that Fox had rejected the script and that Tony Scott wanted to discuss ideas with Kiefer Sutherland. At least I'm glad they are taking their time with it.
@Supes - Don't worry, man. Part 1 has already made over $718 million worldwide. Considering that it only cost them around $250 million to shoot both parts, they're on Profit Street from here on out, no matter how Part 2 does. However, I do think that Part 2 will hold out more because it's the actual final film. Anyway, just wanted to mention that.
I just have to say that Christopher Nolan has yet to disappoint his fans. The title is fine (I mean, let's face it, "Batman Begins" was way goofier than this one.) and I'm glad that the Riddler is not the villain. It was the obvious choice and everyone assumed (even me) that we were going to see Mr. E. Nygma in the next film. My only problem now is having to deal with the jackasses that are inevitably going to compare this film unfairly to "The Dark Knight." My only piece of advice is to just go into this film and watch it for what it is, because chances are that it will not have the same impact that "The Dark Knight" had. NOTE: I said there was a chance of the film not meeting expectations, not that it won't. NOLAN RULES!
Okay, first off, when I say, "it's only my opinion," that's meant to stop douche bags from slamming me for having one, not because I can't back it up. "Superman Returns" is nothing more than a sh*tty remake of the original Reeve films that disguises itself as a sequel to those films. There are way too many needless elements such as Lois' kid and the unnecessary boyfriend. The overall story also sucked with the dumb-ass "I went to Krypton just to see if anyone was there and it didn't work out, so now I'm an emo alien that can't stand being alone" plot that has so many holes, you can run a train through them such as Lois seemingly accepting the fact that she has Supes kids despite the problem that she shouldn't remember ever sleeping with him due to him kissing her at the end of the second film and making her forget their time together when she knew who he was. As for FF, I just thought it was good fun and I enjoyed seeing the Evans and Chiklis banter. They are by no means perfect films, especially when it comes to product placement, but they were fun in a genre that can sometimes try to take itself a little too seriously. Now, if you want me to back up why I like any of the other films on my list, let me know.
I do think that it's almost time for mainstream audiences to move on to a new genre that will lead in the next decade, but to say that the superhero genre will die off completely is the most ridiculous thing anyone can say. I think that the genre will continue throughout the next decade, but like the Western, it will eventually decline until only one or two good ones per year are made. I have made a list of films since "Blade" that I thought were good and bad. Note that these are the films that I've seen and it's only my own opinion. Remember what Rob Gordon from "High Fidelity" said. "How is it bullsh*t to state a preference. GOOD Batman Begins The Dark Knight X-Men X2: X-Men United Spider-Man Spider-Man 2 Watchmen Kick-Ass The Incredible Hulk Iron Man Iron Man 2 Blade Blade II Hellboy Hellboy II: The Golden Army V for Vendetta Fantastic Four Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer BAD Catwoman Elektra Hulk X-Men: The Last Stand Blade: Trinity Spider-Man 3 Superman Returns Daredevil The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Ghost Rider
Really, Rufio? Did you think that the producers of this series ever wanted to tell a good story or scare the audience. Don't get me wrong, I agree with you, but the past few films have all been nothing more than gore-fests. I really hope they aren't lying and that this is, indeed, the final film.
@Marcusx - What do you mean he just has to beat the Dark Knight? "Avatar" and "Titanic" are the top two highest-grossing films of all time. He doesn't have to beat "The Dark Knight." He kinda already has.
Oh, and as far as "Titanic" being released in 3D, I could care less, but that's just my opinion.
A lot of people are talking about how 3D might be a fad and will go away in a few years. Some think that it will stay around forever. Since there have been two different eras for 3D in the past (the '50s and '80s) that ended with people losing interest, I'm still saying it's a fad... for now. However, I also think that even if 3D catches on for good, it will not be the end of 2D films. The question about whether or not 3D will be here to stay depends on how it does in the home entertainment arena. With new TVs and Blu-Ray players, it looks like we're about to find out.
Here's a link to the article where the director of the short finally spoke out about the film. He said that the mysticism would definitely be included and that Scorpion would be a bad guy. He said that he had $7500 to work with and did what he could. Damn fine job for $7500. http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/TheDealio/news/?a=19003
I don't know where Sonja is coming from because I've always seen it spelled Sonya, but I believe the site is referring to Jax as Jacks because of how his name appears on the door in the trailer.
Yeah, IMDB has a lot of movies that are "currently in pre-production" that haven't seen the light of day. I wait until someone makes an official announcement.
Don't get me wrong, this might not be an advert for the new game. It's just a possibility. It could still be for a film. I'm not closing it off to any possibility until I know more. A lot of games are known for being revamped when the creators feel like they've worn the previous story out. This newer, more realistic take may just be a new direction for the series. As far as the supernatural stuff, this film may not be revealing that just yet (if it's for a game, that is). The characters may think that it's just a simple tournament until they get there and learn about Outworld and all of the other stuff. That could explain why they didn't focus on Sub-Zero too much and didn't even focus on Liu Kang (who would possibly know about the realms and the truth about MK) or Raiden at all. I think we'll know more soon enough. Either Warner Bros. will make an announcement about it or it'll end up at E3 if it is for a game.
