Which is like LARP-13, only with fewer fake British accents.

I assume it'll be PG-13 to broaden its audience beyond the B Action Movie Thread.

Also, Bradito's right. The book is.....not good. 

 

This is a case where I hope they take liberties on the Novel which YES, you're right, it isn't all that good, but visually could be amazing if done right like how they handled the dinosaurs in JURASSIC WORLD.. One thing though: For the love of God, please don't include that dumbass ending of the novel to the movie.. Not only is it not plausible, but you'd be dead within minutes from the stomach acid in this thing that would eat through your wetsuit and kill you.. For those that have read the novel, you know the ending I'm referring to.. The only way you kill something like this realistically is a fucking torpedo or detonator.. I have high hopes for this movie.. Please don't fuck this up..

That Tuckerman guy ... wow.  He's like every bad cliche about Hollywood producers rolled into one.

​I think this movie is going way under the radar and will end up being a summer crowd pleaser, but please make sure you've dotted your "I's" and crossed your "T's" when it comes to the trailer in making sure everything looks good so this doesn't suffer the Ang Lee HULK Treatment after that trailer debuted at the Super Bowl and afterwards, the entire internet shit heavily on the FX and rightfully so considering how good HULK now looks compared to back in 2003...

I mean, Kong from Kong: Skull Island and Kong from Peter Jackson's King Kong "look alike" in that they're both giant apes. (I'd bet, BTW, that your average moviegoer wouldn't be able to tell them apart if presented without context.) BUT most folks here wouldn't say they look much like each other because of facial structure, posture, fur color and length, etc.

Sharks have far fewer distinguishing features.

Plus it's a shitty photo and we can't see much of MEG.

They do both have scars over their right eyes. Looks like they have pretty similar looking scars on the left eye, and it seems like MEG has scarring on the top of the mouth similar to the three scars Bruce has.

Kate, do you talk to yourself in real life or just on the Internet?
post #559 of 594

I think it's a left hand, right hand situation.

I really want this movie to do well, if for anything cause it seems like a shoe in when you consider how good the Dinosaurs looked in JURASSIC WORLD that this seems like a no brainer in making something like this look damn real and believable..

Jesus, if they can make something like this look as good as it does here, imagine what they could do with MEG and a proper budget????

I'm I also meant to be MichaelM too? Didn't know. Thanks for letting me in on that one. Am I you too? It'd be real helpful if you could just draw me up a list of all the people I'm supposed to be.

You're the one shitposting, I'm just replying to your shit.

You're the person that just randomly brought up that Kate bullshit completely out of the blue.
post #566 of 594
Yep, I'm the only rando who thinks this way.
post #567 of 594
I was never around other than to lurk during the first round of Kate stuff, I think she could have come up with a better name.
post #568 of 594
Well, it was just another weirdo pretending to be a girl on the Internet. It kind of suits him.

Is there a point there? Yes, you are not the only person to think I'm someone that posted here before. Yes, you still randomly started shitposting and then bitched at me for replying to you after you said something to me. Apparently a number of you seem to think a number of people here are or were Kate. What the fuck did Kate do to you guys? When I looked them up on here after someone else told me they were accused of being Kate when they joined it looked like Kate hadn't posted in years.

Wow.. Didn't this thread take a sudden turn out of nowhere.. I'm thinking a trailer for this will be released on Super Bowl Sunday.. If they do, we'll all pray that the FX look worthy of showing a trailer liike this in front of Millions of viewers watching the half time show knowing Social Media will bury it if it's not good...

Why would you say it's weird? Isn't it normal to have these kinds of conversations? I, mean, erm, we, just love talking about movies. Some people!

I haven't been here in a week.

I'm also just now looking at this thread ago. Just in case you think it took me about two hours to think this up.

post #584 of 594

They need to get a trailer for this out soon, even a teaser trailer for heaven sakes, if for anything to get the discussion back on track instead of how badly this thread has taken a morbid turn for the worst..

post #585 of 594
Yes. Release a trailer for CHUD’s sake!

I've never been banned from the site because until November of last year I'd never joined it. It's kind of hard to be banned from sites you've never joined before. So it's more like: Ask the guy you're just randomly an asshole to.

It does sort of look like Bruce the shark from JAWS, just ALOT bigger.. My guess is that there is more than 1 of these sharks in this movie and we see the 75 Foot one probably in the middle or toward the end of the movie cause that one in the pic doesn't look 75 foot, however it's a pic and not in motion and that's why they need to get a trailer of some kind out soon.. I'd say Super Bowl Sunday during the half time show would be a good time considering the millions of viewers watching.. They just have to make sure they don't pull a HULK 2003 like they did with Ang Lee's version of the HULK back then releasing a trailer during Super Bowl with unfinished FX and after that, it was shit on big time by Social Media and never recovered.. Considering how dinosaurs are brought to life in JURASSIC PARK this should be easy to do...

I was watching today's Movie Math with Grace Randolph and she pointed out why this movie has a chance of being a huge hit in China, and it's not just because of the fact it's partially funded by a Chinese company or that it features a lot of Chinese actors, but that all of the Fast And Furious guys (of which Jason Statham is, obviously, now a part) are seen as big movie stars there because of that franchise. Jumanji has obviously done well there for many reasons, not least because the Chinese know The Rock from Fast And Furious. It's also one of the few countries where Vin Diesel's xXx: The Return Of Xander Cage was a success. 

 

Anyway, thought that was mildly interesting enough to share.

Wait, weren't you guys telling me xXx was popcorn fun and did well?

 

To boxofficemojo I go.

It bombed in North America (earning around the same amount as the original's opening weekend in its entire run) but China went nuts for it ($61m debut weekend, with enough legs to make up over half of its eventual $300m overseas take). 

 

They say movie stars are dead but that doesn't seem to be true in China if you were in the Fast and Furious franchise.

They should have just named it: "xXx: Fast and Furious" and changed nothing else.  Might have doubled its gross.
