Get this Man a Facet Tool – Robots Root 11 May 2018

Disappointed at the lack of attribution, but this is my current desktop, and I used it in our latest Robot-Kraken Podcast. So good.

  • Looking forward to American Animals, as one does.
  • I’m 100% on board with whatever regarding Birds of Prey, honestly.
  • Thinking about the future of the franchise, what ‘big event’ could replace Avengers movies? I think this is a maguffin, because the narrative had bled into other films already, such as the last two most amazing Captain America films. I was thinking about this last night. Maybe ‘Secret Wars’? Not the stitched-together battle planet, but rather the idea that the heroes and villains would be shunted into an environment forcing them to organize and fight their way out. I can see this fusing concepts from the original Secret Wars, Champions, and frankly, a good dose of what we got from Thunderbolts and Exiles: versions of characters pulled from the multiverse. Makes sense to this guy!
  • This is HIGH TREASON.
  • Donald Glover got wonderfully weird on SNL. But this novelization of the backstory of Lando is even weirder.
  • Captain Marvel already has a very intriguing cast… but they just added Annette Bening, and I’m even more intrigued.
  • Look: I’m horrified by the project, but I LOOOOVE her honesty. Legit.
  • Ron Howard + Arrested Development + Star Wars. Gold! Marketing at its best.
  • Listen, I have too much stuff, and I’m trying to get less stuff. But I’m really having trouble resisting this.
  • TAKE MY MONEY (that I don’t have)
  • I haven’t finished Clone Wars and haven’t started Rebels (kids too young) but this is very interesting to me, stylistically.
  • Everything about this. EVERYTHING. Thanks to C Ferrren for finding it…
  • Jon Favreau’s new SW series will take place during the first years of peace in the New Republic. Interesting territory for the show, I think.
  • While I understand WHY Syfy is dropping the Expanse (bad deal they made) I will just say that this better get picked up by Netflix, fast.
  • Here’s that teaser for Predator that came out yesterday. Optimism abounds, more on Kris’ side than mine. But still, love the cast. Here’s a snap of the current Predator design, in all of it’s sizzlechest, tall headed glory.
  • All the behind the scenes business is done, and Rick and Morty will be back for… 70 EPISODES… FFS that’s good news.
  • 355 is an all-female spy thriller, which is 100% better news than whatever was happening the day before it was revealed to be happening. The cast.
  • LEGO car building factory awesomeness…

And with that, a reminder to listen to our latest episode of Robot-Kraken, and in general, you know, fear not and be just…

Seppuku by Saarlac – Robots Root 17 April 2018

I’m ALL about this samurai/Mandalorian situation back there. Just give me THAT movie, thanks.

Meanwhile, for science:

  • I’ll be in my bunker.
  • With Gabriel Luna’s casting as the new Terminator, and the most recent casting of other actors of Hispanic culture, I’m suddenly much more intrigued about what they’re up to… this could be interesting, or a garbage fire, or an interesting garbage fire.
  • I love Michael Mann, and how he can turn any subject matter into Heat, which suits me fine. This time, he’s going after Paul le Croix. I smell some Black Hat vibes.
  • I don’t get the sense this is a very serious effort, but a heist film set in the world of comic conventions, released the same day as Avengers? That’s pretty brilliant strategy.
  • Hotel Artemis, because Jeff Goldblum, that’s why.
  • Neuromancer and chemistry, as explained by one who knows, about one who used.
  • Ten years from now, we’ll have chemical attack weapons that obliterate the plastics in enemy armor, weapons and gear. Marked.
  • Cathy Yan has been tapped to direct Birds of Prey… which apparently is not the same movie as Gotham City Sirens. More females behind the pen and the camera, thats a good thing!
  • Things aren’t looking good for the (near) future of the Mad Max franchise… the lawsuit continues.
  • Domhnall Gleeson may take the lead roll in the adaptation of Kitchen, which stokes me. Also, I saw the 4th Harry Potter film for the first time, and kept yelling at my family that Mad Eye Moody was General Hux’s daddy. No one seemed interested.

Jordan Gibson just owned Monday as far as I’m concerned Just a perfectly executed concept.

Now we’re hearing that an X-Men reboot would focus on Dark Phoenix. I mean. Just SKIP TO THE END I guess…

Interesting story about how Fox and Marvel traded character (names) for a pair of recent and upcoming films…

This of course isn’t the first large scale photorealistic genre sculpture we’ve seen, but man, how many of these will be perched suspiciously in very wealthy nerd hideouts… for untoward attention purposes… admittedly it’s odd that it is less of a likeness of her than many products under the half-a-Yugo-in-1991 price point…

Another amazing Square Enix scuplt…

Christina Hobson has been tapped to write the Harley film. But it’s now officially a ‘women of the DC Universe’ film. I wonder if that will survive the development process. In truth, I do think Harley works better in a group dynamic. But I was hoping for a Harley and Joker on the lam story, tying in other villains and heroes but from their narrative perspective.

This is the stuff of many a sc-fi movie premise. Particularly Star Treks.

That is all. Return to your bunkers!

Preacher makes me Sweat – 23 May 2016

Image

I’m stoked: I looked at it thrice before realizing the hero image isa NEW Steve Dillon piece representing the cast as opposed to the original comic looks and characters. RAD.

The new Star Trek trailer gives me some optimisms. It gives Lung whatever’s the opposite of optimisms. I don’t like seeing all the things in a trailer, rather than in the film, though.

I’m sure all of you have your own 1:1 scale foam facehuggers already, but for those that don’t, for some insane reason:

JoBlo reports rumors that, among the other things we’ve heard recently about the Spidey film, that the Tinkerer will be the one to build Vulture’s crap out of recovered Chitauri gear, and that Stark will be giving Spidey more upgrades including nonsensical web armpit wings a la classic Ditko. That makes no sense. But I like them, so.

Here, Mashable attempts to explain the ‘timey-wimey’ timeline screwyness leading into X-Men Apocatole. I have to say, this was a helpful video for me. Still confusing. But good effort.

Finally, this report suggests that the Harley spin-off may actually be something more of a Birds of Prey or female-themed group dynamic film. Huh.
