Im Arresting You Thats What Im Doing – Robots Root 20 September 2017

I’m somewhat alarmed to tell you that I feel strongly compelled to buy this bottle even though I fear soul crushing debt.

Welp, in other news, here’s some Robot Rootery:

  • How Wonder Woman should have ended? Right here. And a hankering for an Honest Trailer, perhaps? HERE.
  • This Sideshow speculative Nomadic Obi Wan is all sorts of amazing and I want this movie now. This right here. All of it.
  • You may have heard that Richard Donner’s original goal for Superman was to have the majority of Superman I and II as a single film. This isn’t that, quite, but here is a Blu-Ray release of the longform version of Superman I that was originally broadcast over two nights. I can’t wait. How interesting! It’s like an alternate reality version of the film.
  • A brief history of the famously awkward Star Trek ‘double punch’ maneuver.
  • I’m kind of enjoying this examination of Tragic Photoshop on Alicia Vikander’s spine. I mean, I enjoy examining her spine in general. But also, bad photoshop. Speaking of, here’s the whole trailer.
  • So I’m thinking about Avengers 3 and 4. Loose theory: Avengers 3 (Infinity War) will involve Thanos cleaning up, brutally killing everyone. Cap gets ahold of the time gem, travels back… then we have Captain Marvel movie, set in 90s. Perhaps time travel events in Avengers 3 lead to environment where Cap Marvel now exists. Reset MCU. Then forward to Avengers 4 where we have traveled through different timelines, and are now defeating Thanos with a new hybrid team of multidimensional Avengers? This would explain why Crossbones may be back (alternate universe or time travel) and would trade heavily on the Avengers Forever stuff from years ago, swapping out Thanos for Kang.
  • Trailer round-up; This collection of trailers includes the following: gratuitous overuse of the choppy percussion coinciding with cut scenes, mini-teaser trailers preceding the actual trailers, oversharing, and surprisingly, two uses of big gun 80’s metal that I hope make it into the respective projects and not just the trailers.
    • New Jumanji stuff, which I told myself I wouldn’t watch, but did, and still loved.
    • New full Punisher trailer. At this point his chestplate looks less bustier-like, which is good, but I still struggle with his douche haircut. Release date remains randomly obscured, because Netflix.
    • Donnie Yen’s HK 70s epic, Chasing the Dragon
    • Full Tomb Raider trailer (I really enjoy a female, modern take on Indiana Jones, but it’s a bit heavy on the daddy stuff)
  • MA.K is being adapted by the producer of IT. Giant robots, so I’m in.
  • This is awesome: Tweedie Waititi has commissioned and produced a Maori-language version of Moana and held free screenings, to encourage the dwindling native-tongue speaking Maori population to re-engage with their culture in NZ.
  • And speaking of the Waititis, Taika is apparently looking at taking on Akira. I mean, CAN YOU IMAGINE. So rad.
  • I don’t know why this took me by surprise, given Schwarzenegger and Cameron have been talking up another Terminator project, but now apparently Linda Hamilton is in on it. Surprising to me, I guess, given her relationship collapse with Cameron…
  • Watchmen has begun production for HBO… given how much room that story wants to breathe, and HBO’s track record for genre projects the last several years, I’m optimistic.

One more thing:

I don’t know of this is legit…. but it is definitely L E G I T if you feel me.

 

Also: Dig on Bosslogic’s speculative Joker via Jackie Earl Haley..

Finally, an update on the TRDL Art Jam:

 

Our man Tulio will be taking on the duties of posting the TRDL Art Jam subjects each month, to our FB and dA groups… starting in October. I needed to focus on the TRDL Sourcebook production, so this is a huge help.

We Are All Flipping Down Jones, One Way or Another – Robots Root 12 September 2017

The news of the morning is that JJ Abrams is looking to be the selection to write and direct Star Wars IX. Good news to some, less so for others worried about the cyclical and nostalgic nature of Force Awakens, or who wanted a female director etc. I for one feel that this is at least a known, accomplished choice, not only in their resume but in the SW film world, and loved Force Awakens despite issues. So I’m in.

Rose City Comic Con was super fun, and the report on that will be forthcoming here on the site, though available on the Robot-Kraken podcast on itunes in the next few days…

Meanwhile, this is happening. It’s robot’s Root!

  • Ant-Man and Wasp are flipping SUVs in our old hood (flipping down Jones St). One Lung was passing by, and yelled for them to watch out for ‘dirty dishes and cheeseburger meat!’ No word on if it makes it into the film.
  • Here’s the incredibly labyrinthine and overwrought way in which Phasma escaped Starkiller Base, apparently. Guh.
  • Daniel Dae Kim replacing Ed Skrein in the Hellboy reboot is the BEST kind of fan-casting made real. I love it.
  • One never knows with these “news” items, as there must be as much propaganda and misinformation leaking as any actual accidental leak, but now ‘creative difference’ in the firing of Colin Trevorrow to ‘difficult’ with anecdotal reports of raging ego and editiorializing on set. I find these stories interesting only because of the let’s say translucency of the modern era: Oscar bait films love to show stories about famous filmmakers struggling to complete their projects amidst personal faults, often  ciphers for true stories or biographies accepted as behind the scenes fact where the press of the day did not have access to this information, or studios more carefully managed the image of the productions. Josh Trank’s reported meltdowns on FF follow the same archetypes. My sense is that Hollywood has always been rife with imploding egos and set drama, both in front of and behind the camera, but we hear about it now because of that spoiler/gossip penetration. Similarly, the lack of studio management of the image of these productions these days baffles me. Sure, we read about scripts in non-photo and unique ID code paper, extensive onset security, decoy sets to trick drones, etc, but aside from those efforts, sometimes I can’t fathom what they are thinking. For example, after Jared Leto’s antics being described in press junkets backfired, going from ‘edgy’ to ‘pathetic’ in the public consciousness, why on earth was Villaneuve quoted as ‘tearing up’ over how Leto wandered around Blade Runner in opaque contacts FFS. This DOES NOT HELP THE UPHILL BATTLE OF SELLING A MOVIE LIKE THIS.
  • At least good news came in the form of Patty Jenkins signing on to write and direct WW2. Smart move in the DC house, for the second time, overall.
  • Lastly, Len Wein passed away this weekend, which was somewhat melancholy news while tabling a comic convention.

More to come! I’m still decompressing and Kris is still driving…

That Sci Fi Rigamarole – Robots Root 170707

I’m starting over with Rick and Morty and going ep by ep. One night in, and my brainstem smells like death. I love it!

Somewhere, in space, this could all be happening RIGHT NOW. It’s Robot’s Root!

  • Nighthawk and Bushmaster are new characters from the comics to be included in Luke Cage S02. Expect updates from their comics-canon versions, no doubt.
  • Not that I saw Wolfcop… but here’s a trailer for Another Wolfcop… which includes 100% footage for Wolfcop. Plus liquor donuts.
  • Happytime Murders has been given a tentative release date, which is awesome. Can’t wait for this.
  • According to this, Ragnarok directly sets up Infinity War… here’s my theory, which they alluded to here and elsewhere, so it’s not a particularly unique approach: Thanos is courting Hela.
  • Leave it to Jeremy Renner to eff up both of his arms in stunt work for Infinity War. Makes me quite curious. Too many severe thumbs up?
  • New Warriors for Freeform, Marvel’s first proper comedy series, has already been cast, and I’m pleasantly surprised that Squirrel Girl will be played by a personal favorite of mine, Vanessa Vayntrub. Very cool.
  • Evidence that Han Solo continues to film, and that people are going to be divided over the young Han Solo they’ll be getting.
  • This hypothetical, in an interview with Chris Nolan, has been of course taken out of context and spun into hyperbole… but yes, thank you, I WOULD like a Nolan Bond film or three.
  • These dilapidated, post-apocalyptic images based on games and animation from the last several decades are phenomenal.
  • Do you need skull dice? I haz some skull dice for you, real nice!

That’s all for now. Don’t give your dog advanced cognitive skills. That’s what I’ve learned from Rick & Morty.

GOG2 is Pushing my Technicolor Buttons – Robots Root 29 April 2017

It’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 weekend (somewhere) and the reviews look good. I’m drawn back to this comparison, above, of the marketing and how well those firms understood both the material and the target market. Not because I want to see JL fail, but because I want to see GOG2, and all the supers films possible, succeed.

 

Meanwhile, a Robot’s Root weekend edition for 4/29/17!

  • “That’s not MY Superman!” they all said.
  • Tyler Labine just joined Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. Excuse me while I add that to my sizable queue. Netflix/BBC
  • Great second look at that Kingsman 2 trailer. I LOOOOOOVE all the cheesy americana details. The BASEBALLS.
  • Sobering encapsulation of everything clouding ST: Discovery’s production progress. Doesn’t look gooooood.
  • My lovely wife worked full time, took night classes, and did final presentations (twice) within a week of giving birth. She did not, however, table hop battlements.
  • SMASHY MOUTHY! I’m so down.
  • I kind of like the idea of a purple Gamora. There’s so much blue skin in the MCU space stuff with the Kree and other races… having the purple almost feels like it makes more sense.
  • I’m not in the sport camera market. I have a GoPro but it is mostly for documenting my deaths in the event I am flattened on the bike. But if I were, IF I WERE, this camera
  • BRB, have to go install Nightingale flooring. Because ninjas.
  • Is WALL-E Satan? Maybe.
  • Is this rad marketing or curious desperation or a meltdown? Who’s to say.

Finally, I wanted to mention an add to our most recent few Robot-Kraken Podcasts, where we’ve been discussing our art process and how it has changed over the years: I talked a bit about my father’s experiences as a graphic artist when I was a kid, and how many of the early (and current) tools in the digital realm were approximations of physical actions from real paste-up work. Here’s a great video on how the industry evolved, if you’re interested in the details.

Three Mix Tapes Are the Proper Quantity of Mix Tapes – 21 April 2017

Well, good news if you are a Guardians fan… James Gunn is writing and directing the third film. That’s the longest contiguous production in Marvel’s history. I love it.

Robot’s Root, 21 April 2017:

  • ‘Those people who said this was as good as Empire must really be into file formats’ cue Saw throwing stink eye at his thumb drive. Pretty Honest. THEIR WEAKNESS TO STICKS.
  • Great study on ‘What Makes Always Sunny Still Funny’… I mean, YEAH, but I never really thought about how well defined the family lives of the characters were in forming their individual character traits.
  • Earthling Cinema explains The Arrival, I movie I loved, but not as much as this explanation of it.
  • Ian McShane threw HBO under the bus, saying they already have a Deadwood shooting script. GOD DAMN IOT!
  • If you enjoy Game of Thrones, and if you enjoy generating fan theories about WTF, then you may enjoy this Fan Theory Generator. I tried it out. Legit:

Petyr Baelish is secretly dead

Who wants Sansa dead? Cersei, who believes that she had a part in Joffrey’s murder. Who has been spending a lot of time with Sansa lately? Petyr Baelish. It’s possible that Cersei has sent a Faceless Man after Sansa, and this Faceless Man has killed Petyr and taken his face. He fed Sansa to the Boltons because he was dead certain (spot the pun!) that she wouldn’t survive them. She did, so now he’s hatched Plan B of being right next to her in Winterfell so that he can finally eliminate her.

  • No gusto, but I’m not the target market for a teen soap Cloak and Dagger show.
  • Best quote about why it’s better Jeff Goldblum isn’t in blueface in Thor: Ragnatole:
Goldblum has transcended acting to that place where he’s invited to films to basically be himself. Making him blue, while comics accurate, would have just put an artificial barrier between us and what is surely going to be an epic performance.
  • From Lung: The Kraken Piescraper. YUSSSS
  • You may not be the target market, but as someone who routinely plays Hans Zimmer soundtracks nearly every day, I’m disappointed to find out he actually brought the orchestra to SF when I wasn’t looking. Previously when the tour was announced it was only select cities. Anyway, I’d have definitely sprung for it. Check out the Inception performance at Coachella, otherwise known as the Burning Man for Rich Hollywood Types Who Dont Realize The Organizer Funds Anti LGBT Organization and Is Linked to the Kochs.
  • 10 more X-Files will be X-Filing away in the near future. Let’s hope they’re the good kind.
  • A rejiggered Passengers that may solve some plot points. Did I post this? Anyway I liked the film anyway. But here.
  • Much is being made of Joss Whedon saying he’s obsessed with Barbara Gordon’s ‘damage’ that led her to becoming so hardcore as Batgirl, which I think is a misnomer. He was saying it in the context of: what drives a young woman without a tragic past to enter this life, in the absence of the default everyone’s-a-superhero comics world? Not damage so much as drive. But since Gordon is linked to Killing Joke (which, at least temporarily, ENDED her Batgirl role) it immediately means everyone assumes Whedon will make Gordon a survivor of something. On the other hand, one of the best things about the Batgirl Year One series several years ago was that it effectively showed Barbara setting out as Batgirl because she wanted the thrill and the freedom. It was FUN. I’d love to see that on film.
  • The pedigree for Captain marvel is getting interesting. One writer from GoG, one from Inside Out, and co-indie directors from Mississippi Grind.
  • Mireille Enos, Greg Kinnear and Steve Buscemi have joined ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’ which adds some heft to the anthology series…

  • Lastly, I leave you with this. See you in the bunker.

Whooop Whooop Whooop Trailer plus Other Things – 18 April 2017

Well, I’ve only watched the Last jedi teaser about 33,000 times so far. Finally spotted mysteriously-alive Phasma, and today, I see those new whatever-they-are Pound-Note-Wings are hurtling towards the rumored Even-Bigger-AT-ATs… anyway, awesome of course.

 

Robot’s Root for 18 April 2017:

  • My feed was all about a Man From UNCLE sequel until I looked into it and saw that Armie Hammer just #yeahdude’d it into being. Which means nothing. But still, hey, I’d prefer a world with a Man from UNCLE sequel to one without.
  • Check out how cool Leia looks in this…
  • I like covert action/ spy/ assassin type thrillers, so I choose to be optimistic, though the production pedigree is questionable. See for yourself.  Michael Keaton is being all Michael Keatoney.
  • Would you be down for an animated Watchmen with a hard R? I don’t see why this is happening, but according to this survey, SOMEONE must…
  • what do you think about Josh Brolin as Cable? The bullshit fan manips so far haven’t been helpful. But I almost feel like just Brolin walking around scowling is ENOUGH.
  • Nothing will turn your own cult fanbase against you than spurious trademark moves…especially with the cyberpunk genre.
  • Ottoman-style arts of excellent movies. MUST SEE.

As the World Turns, So Does Robots Root – 12 April 2017

Thus and therefore, I bring your: Robot’s Root! 12 April 2017. And unless you are reading this from Southeast Asia, this is a time traveling post! Because very likely, it is not the 12th for you just yet. I pity you and your mortal limitations!

 

  • MI:6 has officially begun production. Here’s what made me laugh about this: I thought it already was. Because I was thinking about the Mummy airplane business. And since the Mummy appears to be Bourne Identity… and MI wants to be Bourne Identity… it just. Well. Ah.
  • Following the previously released Thor 3 trailer, here’s Mr Sunday Movies’ reliably awesome recap and speculation video. Pretty good stuff, right here.
  • Hyper-real Ren and Stimpy masks, which I love, because that was a critical early innovation of the cartoon, the use of creepy painted scenes cut into the animation. Always with stink!
  • I loved this: computer viruses reimagined as cyberpunk characters. Sort of. Great color choices anyway!
  • This is tolly random, but I just found the DVD-released final mini-episode that came out after LOST ended that acts as sort of a tie-up-loose-ends deal. It’s not magic or anything, but reminded me how much I missed the show. Worth a watch if you were a lost fan, and you can even sort of pretend S06 didn’t even happen (I mean, happen to you) and still enjoy this.
  • Lots of Scuttlebutt that Man of Steel 2 might involve Black Adam as the villain. I mean… I don’t buy it. But possible. Possible? Who knows.
  • The Justice League turn right. Because, justice.
  • Exciting news! Jurassic World 2 will feature an Apatosaurus wielding a cordless drill!
  • Part of me sort of didn’t need to see Frank Castle in the overt skull wearing that floppy hair, but hey.
  • How Josh Brolin rolled in and landed Cable I can’t even. This was the best…
  • Finally, Friday at 12:30pm the Last Jedi trailer will apparently be released. Brace yourselves. MEGA STAR DESTROYERS because bigger!

Never Accept that High Hat – 2 Sept 2016

RIP Jon Polito, who taught me to never accept that high hat. NEVER.

ITEM: New droid alert: C2-B5, an Imperial astromech. Given its inclusion, I had a thought. Maybe in this film, the Rebellion learns they can access Imperial data terminals or WTF using an astromech where otherwise they couldn’t? Or maybe the data vault of this droid is what the rebels are carrying around in the trailer that looks like a giant Bornouli disc, which would be awesome, because I’ve been stymied by the idea that the data had to be in a physical media at all, let alone a large one, ever since we moved past the early 80s in filmmaking, but are stuck with sci-fi / tech incompatibilities like this.

I Will Not Kill You – 11 Aug 2016

Image
Well, I’ve been waiting all day for this one. No disappointments, other than that they should have never revealed Vader, period. But hot damn.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frdj1zb9sMY

Image
Watch carefully for this scene!

Meanwhile, somewhere in space, this is happening:

Image
ITEM: Brad Kremer just released a digital animated homage to the opening sequence in Akira, and it burns, IT BURNS. With white hot rage that i cannot see a digital or live action version of this film that is this faithful to the imagery and tone that made the original OAV so good.

“This project started many years ago when both Dean and I lived on Tybee Island. I came to Dean with the idea to do a tribute “trailer” to Akira. As a long time fan of the original film he of course loved the idea! As we brainstormed the story that we wanted to explore from the film we settled on focusing primarily on the bike. The Akira bike is one of those iconic symbols that still remains relevant today similar to the Millennium Falcon or Marty McFly’s beat up DeLorean.
Since that first day when Dean and I began this journey we have both moved a number of times. But we always kept the project alive with a lot of late nights (mostly from Dean), re-edits and re-renders, and a lot of discussions about how to improve it. And so, after countless hours of modeling and rendering we are ready to share with you this short tribute to the masterpiece that Katsuhiro Otomo created and shared with us so many years ago. We hope you enjoy!”

Image
ITEM: Die Antwoord have taken to IG to accuse David Ayers and his design team of apeing their steez. I think it’s mostly a stretch. But three watches, hey!
http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-enter … ebook-post

:::

Image
ITEM: Meanwhile, Ayers describes SS as an ‘anarchic punk rock art film’ and states it was never envisioned as an R-rated film, which we know. I can’t help but think he is protesting long and hard that there wasn’t a hellstorm of studio interference after BVS in the editing room, but I also think he’s been savvy ie. anti Trank, and resisting the defensive urge to bite the studio hands that fed him. Which actually isn’t very punk rock… but look, I think when they sign on to these big tentpoles they go in knowing the final product will be a mutation beyond their original vision, and some directors, like Ayers, takes it as part of the game, and considers it behind the curtain business not to be vented about, and others are less prepared, and complain. And I say all this, prior to writing or recording my review of the film, as someone who saw many flaws, or particularly missed opportunities, and especially noticed signs of heavy editing… but still REALLY had fun, so haters gon’ hate, and I appreciate Ayers for standing up for the commercial product he created. Additionally, I like his connections between choice and addiction, though it wasn’t as apparent in the film. PS, he indicated Joker killed Robin, not Harley.
http://geektyrant.com/news/david-ayer-d … -art-movie

Also, also, laughably these dudes are trying to sue because of not enough Joker, etc. I love it. Good luck, kids. It is QUITE apparent they cut a lot of Joker out of it, and not just from Leto’s running commentary, either. The trailer material alone, the narrative… and in fact, as an aside I’ll talk more about later, I LIKE that what they DID leave in paints the Joker/Harley romance as a love affair rather than a perpetual mindfuck of domestic violence.
