Hows My Breath – Robots Root 9 Nov 2018

Laika’s Missing Link trailer makes everything almost OK. I so cannot even wait.

 

Meanwhile, in the Quantum Realm:

 

  • I love stuff like this. As an artist, I hoard ‘chronological costume reference’ material whenever I find it. Which isn’t often. I committed to drawing every Iron man armor, and I’m woefully behind. Granted I have more prints than most anyone else you’ll come across, but I have many to go.

  • Similarly, this Isle of Dogs poster makes me sweat. I want it framed, badly.
  • This 1:1 scale Venom bust is pretty incredible, and I say that as someone who doesn’t like the Venom design and thought the movie imagery looked ridiculous.
  • What the hell? A final Scooby Doo episode?!?
  • Jeremy Irons asĀ Ozymandias? That’s brilliant casting, actually.
  • I was surprised at the news of a Cassian Andor series on Disney+, but I’m quite pleased with it. Rogue One is my favorite SW project, and a prequel series dipping deeper into the pre-Empire post-Sith era works for me.
  • I am not so enthused about the finally confirmed Loki series. They’d have to be pretty creative to make that show work for me. I don’t like him front and center. I like him as a foil and a conflict agent.
  • Honest Trailer for Incredibles 2, followed by How It Should Have Tole You.
  • I know I’m being overly-critical here, but the addition of Slimer undermines the poster for me.
  • Kingsman 3 without the main lead? Either they’re doing a misdirect (wasted energy, as no one cares) and will pull a Kingsman 2 and bring whomever the want back on a whim (I’m looking at you, Mark Strongbad) or they’re going to focus on the Statesmen, which I wouldn’t mind, though they are better as a side element, not the main show. Who knows, with this random franchise. We bludgeoned it to death in the recent Robot-Kraken podcast discussion…
  • Antoine Fuqua is doing a big budget sci-fi/adventure film called the Infinites, which feels very late aughts indie comic… I’m on board conceptually, based on the vague premise and the skills of the director. But an odd choice!
  • A nice look at the creature design in Guillermo del Toro’s work. Which is a short video, because he uses the same three affectations over and over, ha! I kid.
  • OK, now THAT is a costume skin I didn’t expect out of the new Spider-Man game on the PS4. Right down to the zipatone.

  • Jessica Henwick has joined Godzilla vs. Kong vs. Whomever. Which is just being posted as an excuse to show Jessica Henwick in pigtails with an Iron Sword again. You’re welcome.

With that I leave you. Excelsior!
