To be fair, people would still bitch if Yeoh had been the Ancient One. Because this is 2017!

Great idea, though!

everything is always going to be complained about... so take that as the constant and try to do good and right by this stuff anyway!

Keith Richards as the Ancient One?

I wont be happy with a live action anime adaptation unless they cast a mixed Chinese, Filipino, caucasian, hispanic actor in the lead. I need all of me represented.

Isn't a dragon lady mostly a highly sexual villain character?

not to Derrickson I guess!

"Crazy fucking white people"

post #408 of 649

One of the trickiest parts of all this is that most people in a capitalist culture, whatever the color of their skin, tend to become a part of a different stratosphere once they make it.

 

Gradually, what was once a real collective concern when they were one of the have-nots becomes a tricky area to traverse when they're one of the few allowed to enter the exclusive club.  Do they continue to speak to the issues of representation when they're the ones getting parts as the Asian-American of the moment?

 

It's not just a problem of media representation, of course.  In high levels of corporate culture, a non-white non-male can make it towards the top, but once they're there, they have to play their part in the machine that runs day to day and MAYBE pick the right fights at the right time.

 

 

So with that in mind, it's really cool that Constance Wu (someone who has made it onto a major network sitcom about Asian-Americans) continues to speak out about this without too much regard to how it'll affect her career.  I don't really hear much about Randall Park speaking out as much about it.

 

OF COURSE, it's also become much more 'acceptable' and easy to speak out about this because discussions of these issues are everywhere.  She didn't get there alone and she knows it.  And so she seems to be paying it forward.

It would have been great if they'd have cast the actor who played 100 Eyes in the Netflix MARCO POLO show as the Ancient One.

My wife, who has not seen a single anime in her life, upon seeing the commercial for this:

 

"Well, that looks horrible."

​I admit I'm less than impressed with their butchering of Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence.

post #412 of 649
That trailer was my favorite because I liked the cover!

I know it's a bad cover. I still like it.

First Clip

 

post #414 of 649
If I go to the movies and don't see a trailer for this, did I really have a complete movie-going experience?
post #415 of 649

I suspect this movie is going to lead to some very unfortunate Halloween costume choices.

I'm almost finished with mine.

Its one of the many iconic scenes from the original movie. They feature her jumping from a building and crashing through the glass a lot too, another iconic sequence. They are trying to get us animu fans to go see it. I ain't biting.

So will this be the Gods of Egypt of 2017? 

 

Fingers crossed here.

post #421 of 649
this looks too self serious to be another GODS OF EGYPT
post #422 of 649

 

I don't know man.  I just don't know...

 

 

Ok ok, that's not the whole reason. It seems like it's actually looking better now than it did.  Almost as though they have to keep showing to us to prove the effects are going to work.  (That emerge shot is still not great.  But it seems a bit better now.  That probably had more processing time time put into it that anything else.  Layering on new server melting refraction effects  that each take a week.  In an effort to make it look ... maybe ok.)

 

While attempting to find that frame in other ways I found this wallpaper. It's pretty rough fan art probably from back when the film was announced, but it did give me a yearning for Cunningham being the one who was doing this.  Even though he'd never touch it with a barge pole. (It's funny how so much time is spent analysing the visuals.  It's just that sort of show I guess)

post #423 of 649

This looks exactly like what Americans think of anime so they've nailed that down really well.

I don't know where you live, but even in my college town full of young women, a trip to the grocery store is more often to include a midriff-revealing shirt that shows a belly hanging over a pair of sweats than it is to include a woman that looks like Scarlett Johanson in that trailer.

 

Skin-tight-bodysuit that reveals any tiny defect is not a look that many women or men can pull off.

anyone actually think that even scarlet can pull off that skintight bodysuit look?

all of it is either LOLA'ed to oblivion or is entirely CG at this point

You're calling Scar Jo fat.

Indeed but you missed my brilliant second post right after it. The two posts were to work together revealing that Brad would be the one wearing it and I would be disappointed. YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND MY ART!

Ehh her and Kate Beckinsale certainly made the leather catsuit work. And what's LOLA? Also when we get in trouble for this discussion later I want everyone to know Farsight started this and he needs to take all the blame.

post #430 of 649
no

nobody can pull off that 'literally ripped from the pages of a comic" idealized skintight look without VFX... especially when movies are pushing this stuff to be in daylight (unlike the Underworld movies which are lit and graded into darkness to mold the shape of the costumes into something more flattering)

LOLA FX is the company that does tons of beauty work for all the big movie stars under the cover of endless NDAs. Facial work, body work... we only get to see them praised for their work when it's blatant aging, de-aging, or pre-super soldier shrinking.

OK, lets talk about this underground shady LOLA FX company for the next few pages because I'm fascinated.  If they're so buried until NDA's how have you heard about this?!

 

Are you LOLA Deepthroat?!

post #432 of 649
I've shared articles about them before. Probably in a VFX thread or something.

Wait so they can do photoshop now with moving images without people noticing? Oh my god. I need some kind of list so I can be disappointed.

Scar Jo don't really look like that?!  What will I fantasize about now?!!

Under strict non-disclosure agreements, Hollywood A-listers have been quietly slipping in and out of a few bland office buildings around town, many to sit in on days-long retouching sessions, directing the artists to make every frame suitable. At one such facility, young, fit up-and-comers disrobe for a handheld scanner that captures every pore and hair follicle, creating a template for future beauty work that, as a result, will appear all the more natural.

As Photoshop is to magazine photography, digital beauty has become to celebrities in motion: a potent blend of makeup, plastic surgery, muscle-sculpting, hair restoration, dental work and dermatology. Even the most flawless-in-real-life human specimens are going under the digital knife. Because they can. Because in this age of ultra-high definition, they have to. 

In some cases, it's for pure vanity. In others it's because the film requires it: When a 24-year-old actress is tasked with playing a 17-year-old young-adult heroine, digital beauty becomes more like digital type-casting.

For the record, I stated that most men couldn't pull off that look either. I'm an equal opportunity body-shamer!

 

Really, I'm just trying to protect the sexiness of Halloween for people of every sexual preference. I'm not going to toss around the term 'HERO", but if you want to, you may.

Before I heard about this stuff being done on the regular, I heard about someone who worked on shots of SJ on the first Avengers.  "That is NOT necessarily show she looked in the raw footage..."

Why are you saying such offensive things? Im going to boycott you from CHUD if you keep spewing these....these lies.....this FAKE NEWS!

post #443 of 649

they also used to put vaseline on the lens for close-ups of women!!

 

 

also... I remember hearing rumors about work done to Jake Gyllenhaal's body for PRINCE OF PERSIA

 

I definitely got a sense of it being done for Cruise's face in ROGUE NATION.  And sure enough, there was LOLA FX in the end credits.  I'll bet it was done for OBLIVION and JACK REACHER as well.

This is why you should switch to having crushes on animated women. There's no awkward reality to have to come to grips with.
