Ah Taek Pleashuh in othah people’s HEAD SHOTS – Robot’s Root 1 June 2018

Morrissey has been officially tapped to direct Bond 25! I mean Danny Boyle. More interesting, even, is that he’s bringing his writing partner with him. This could be an intriguing project…

  • Surprising precisely no one, the Silver Sable/ Black Cat film from Sony with no tie in to the character that defines their existence, is very likely dead.
  • However, Legion has been greenlit for a third season! Don’t lose your nerve, Fox. I’m watching you.
  • Now you too (can’t really) have a TARS of your own.
  • Good lord! Lung turned me onto this DEEP study into the symbolism of Fury Road. I just thought it looked cool.
  • Body Bags, Jason Pearson’s old indie project (which I loved) is finally happening as a film from the Wickosphere… with Dave Bautista as Mack. That it’s called ‘Dogtown’ rather than Body Bags’ makes me wonder if we’re going to see it pull away from the randomness of the aesthetics of the book, including Mack’s mask and Panda’s busting at the seams cheerleader outfit and fro.
  • I’m not sure if it will pan out as much as it could via the premise, but Peppermint is at least notableĀ in that I’m all for female led revenge action movies to offset all the male ones. It will be interesting to see if the ‘fridging’ talk will change now that it is the husband and daughter being killed as a plot device.
  • This animatronic achievement may or may not haunt your dreams, but it feels closer to Ghost in the Shell geishas than Pirates of the Caribbean drunk robots…
  • Sesame Street already lost their lawsuit. I love it.
  • The Sisters Brothers… could be a thing…
  • Han Solo Spoiler Section below…

 

 

 

Keep going…

 

 

 

  • I’d have liked to have seen Dryden Vos look like the second concept piece below. Interesting to read that he was one of the catlike designs when Michael Williams (Wire) did his scenes, but was changed to humanoid when Bettany came in… so I wonder why the physical design change for a mocap performance which it was originally. Make no mistake, I think Bettany was awesome. And apparently those weren’t scars, but tissue ridges that flared as hsi blood pressure rised, him not apparently being a scarred human at all… still, anyway, interesting.
  • Regarding these Falcon concepts, I like #12 and #23 because I wanted to see the pincer tip used as a cargo or device grabby bit… the pointy tip was never really explained. I also like #29 because it uses those side parts to siggest there were one more engines or… something… there.

Decepticon Battles Rule Everything Around Me – 13 April 2016

Since it’s been awhile since I shared it, and it was so popular in my home last night, here’s another look at the Soundwave breakdancing video.

In OTHER news, far less interesting:

The black diving iguana on the Galapagos Islands is pretty rad. It wasn’t a new discovery (Darwin despised them, nicely biased) but once someone posted to rediit or wherever that a godzilla baby was nomming on things underwater it took off.

We’ve seen a lot of cool concept industrial design, since 3D viz tools became so accessible… this Batmobile is no exception. While the numbering is misleading and distracts from seeing the design as a Batmobile and not a race car, it WAS pretty clever as a means of numbering the views. Anyway, I love the red-backed fins and the sweep past the wheels.

David Wenham has been cast as Harold Meachum in Iron Fist, a corporate foe of Rand’s.

Lung has already posted separately, savaging the way the new Dr. Strange trailer looks like a ripoff of Inception, though as is often the case, I’m optimistic. I like, in the poster, how you see his eye through his fingers and the way his hands are prominent.

Meanwhile, Marvel got thirty designers together in one of those Death Star trash compactors, crushing them while they frantically sketched, and then picked the paper out of the gore and taped all the pieces together to come up with this ransom note of a trade dress. Guh.

Apparently it has been confirmed at the highly reliable executive level that Ben Affleck is not only co-writing the Batman film but will be directing, as has been long rumored. Take that as you will.

I’m not sure why Kinberg and Co. aren’t just admitting Wolverine 3 is the Old Man Logan storyline. It’s in the future… time marches on, Jackman I’m sure isn’t immortal…

This slipped under the radar but TRDL fave Franka Potente has joined Tom Hardy’s Taboo series, making it, at last count, 3,376 awesome things about this show still agonizingly like a year away.

I’m a superfan of highly organized, compact live/work spaces, and i’ve always fantasized about a rad VW bus rig… but wow, this concept for a scooter version just blows me away. I’d have all my drawers numbered “3” but otherwise.

As expected, the new Harley design from SS is yielding some, er, pleasantly convincing cosplay…

Finally, I was saving this screencap for my upcoming Civil War review (I mean, presumably upcoming… never know when one’s ticket might be punched) but I just couldn’t wait.
