No Good to Me Dead – Robots Root 25 May 2018

Mangold… on board Boba Fett?!? I mean, look: I’m part of the generation of fans that irrationally LOVES Boba Fett, but not part of the generation of fans that loves all those clone business. But if they took the right approach, this could be a pretty innovative piece of the extended SW saga. I want a heist and hunt film, come on!

Meanwhile, these items:

  • Regina King leads a new cast for the Watchmen series on HBO, and while the interwebs seem upset that they aren’t just retelling the same story as the film (and book) I’m looking forward to a story set post-Manhattan in the same continuity. Optimism alert!
  • One of my favorite touches in Deadpool 2 was the inclusion of queer characters where it wasn’t a thing. It wasn’t NOT a thing, either. It was about as controversial as Negasonic moving from one hawt haircut to another, as it should be. More on that when we release the Robot-Kraken Podcast, but look, none of it matters, as far as the haters go, and it REALLY matters, as representation for others, so I’m down.
  • ZOMBIE ALERT!
  • Matt Groening’s Disenchantment. What do you think?
  • Predator = Iron Man 3 + Dark Knight
  • The music is a departure, but everything else is spot on. Preacher S03!
  • Nothing is confirmed until its confirmed, but supposedly non-Batman may be joining previous-Batman in Spidey 2
  • Thanks Comcast. Thanks again. And for SPORTS.
  • One half of this John Wick 3 news is acceptable.
  • OK no joke: the finale of Six Feet Under’s final moments still haunts me. It just wrecked me. Somehow the Simpsons parody STILL has an effect.

Reminder, the latest episode of Robot-Kraken is available now: Legion, Expanse, and more! Please do rate and review us on iTunes…

 

And Thats Why You Always Leave a Note – Robots Root 03 May 2018

This was pretty inspired Han Solo marketing.

 

Meanwhile, this happened:

  • This was ALSO pretty good, for different reasons. A CAPE ROOM.
  • I cannot EVEN with this film.
  • WELP (Avengers: Infinity War spoilerish)
  • “John Wick uses the service industry to stay alive.”  … I’m picturing him eating for free before his shifts and being super down with the daily special objective opinions…
  • SJ Clarkson is directing the next ST film: notable for being a breach of the white male club, and also because, directly related, she’s not QT.
  • It’s getting to the point that the virals are as interesting as the films. I love that Jackman was on board. Now, Celine Dion was a bit much…
  • How dope nerd is Winston Duke that he misidentifies Whiplash as the more obscure X-Men villain Omega Red?
  • If you want to see Samuel L Jackson look slightly younger and with two eyes and a tight curl, well, you’re in luck. No need to get the DVDs out.
  • This could be one of the more tweaky easter eggs in Avengers. I mean, for the AD fan… even knowing about something being in the film, in advance, I still didnt spot it.
  • Unnecessary Avengers bleeps and blips. Pretty savvy.
  • Anyone interested in a Ghostbusters sequel?
  • New Ant-Man trailer… still looking forward to this one… though I’m struggling with the ant at the drum set.
  • This was pretty classy. Watching Disney hand the opening weekend record back and forth to its own self.
  • Interesting deviation from the events of Avengers: Infinity War… either misdirection directly pushed into the merchandising, or a deleted scene that completely changes the film thematically.
  • Josh Halloway as Gambit? The movie was a dog, but thats a great casting choice in my view.
  • Misgivings about choices made in the Snyder/Whedonverse over at DC/WB, I would still have liked to see this whole arc pan out as originally intended.
  • Supposedly the Shazam movie may show us the whole family of related heroes. Only important because I may have drawn Mary Marvel 4 or 5 times for no particular reason. Also, suspected casting for the character in question appears to be Michelle Borth, from Hawaii 5-0 and the Forgotten…
  • Well, this headline was sufficient to not need to read the article, but also to get blocked by cybernanny. “allison-mack-was-trying-super-hard-to-get-emma-watson-in-her-sex-cult”
  • Joe Mang, not letting go (on a yacht)…
  • We talked about this on the podcast, but James Cameron, I mean, srsly.
  • Mean Tweets, Avengers Edition. Lovely as usual. I enjoy when they don’t deny it.

 

That’s all for now. I’ve been on radio silence for several days in a surprisingly successful attempt to avoid Avengers spoilers. I saw it unspoiled!

Do we have a deal? NO THANKS – Robots Root 23 April 2018

Oh oh oh, maybe Venom isn’t complete garbage! This 0.3s is really rad!

 

Never mind.

 

The new Venom trailer has Venom in it, and the saddest part is that the terrible Troma-scale Venom situation isn’t even the worst thing. Nothing makes sense here. NOTHING. Riz Ahmed as the evil corporate whatever with a marble mouth and 17 yr old affect? Michelle Williams with nothing to do but hug her legs on a couch? Jenny Slate squeaking her way through forced exposition? Tons of sinewy, cheesy symbiote effects adding slight tweaks to mundane stuntwork? Venom-snatching a motorcycle in failed X-Games maneuvers? Some random deep, soulful Venom voice actor? Is Woody Harrelson playing all the roles? Does San Francisco actually have to be there? I mean.

Meanwhile:

  • Less interesting is the rumor that Fox assumes Dark Phoenix is their last X-Men, or Marvel period, film. Because merger: 2019. More interesting is the idea that Marvel’s Phase 4 will largely focus on these newly reacquired properties like X-Men, FF, Deadpool, etc. Quite a fresh palate.

  • For the record, I’m 100% on board with Bosslogic’s fantasy casting for an FF film.
  • I don’t have much interest in Joe Mangianello, and he never struck me as particularly articulate. But just read this treatise on his once-self-important Deathstroke moment:
    When I met with Ben Affleck about Batman, the meeting we were having was for Deathstroke. This is a real opportunity to figure out who this guy is on the inside. Like what he’s battling with…
    …From the inside, this is a person who is struggling with all types of things. I think it’s really interesting to tell that kind of a story and tell the truth emotionally of a story like that when you’re talking about a man who lost an eye, was betrayed, lost a son. These different types of aspects.
    Then you couple that with real world military training. Then I started training at like a Ninjutsu dojo and started learning sword fighting. Started learning and understanding where those techniques come from. All of a sudden this thing starts writing itself. What I love doing is in an instance like that I’m able to, at the ground level, I’m able to go back and pitch all of my work. So I’m pitching them: “This is where I think he comes from. This is where I think he’s going. This is the military background. These are some articles that I pulled for you. I also interviewed these people over here.”
    The Ninjustu school, there are scrolls that are written that have these ancient techniques that are not shared with students that are locked away because somebody is going to go into a bar and rip someone’s head off using one of these techniques. What are those techniques? Where are they? Could there theoretically be somebody that would go around and learn these insanely offensive techniques and become this incredible killer? But I’m rooting it in the world. I’m rooting it in something honest so it feels real…
    Somewhere along that way I know that it was announced where the studio – there was talks with Gareth Evans and talks about an origin movie. I’m not giving news. I spent six months prior to all of those phone calls writing a backstory that was turned into sixteen pages, which got turned into a treatment, which then led to my Skype call with Gareth.

    “NINJUSTU” they all said.

  • I don’t know what villain role Matt Damon (supposedly) turned down in Spidey 2, but he made the right call. He needs to be a hero. I would have said Ant-Man, before Paul Rudd owned it.
  • The Dark Knight: script to scene. MASTERFUL.
  • Getting hunted down by Ewoks for fun and profit.
  • Deadpool 2 is all about Peter. I’m just saying. I sent the twitter account to One Lung last weekend because I couldn’t believe it was really a thing. Just too good. Next level viral twitter.

Stay tuned for much much in the next Robot-Kraken podcast to be released soon! So many things to discuss… movies! tv! Expanse! Legion! Westworld! All the things!

You Mess with the Gadot You Get The W Gang Signs – Robots Root 24 Mar 2018

 

Despite resolving as the lowest moneymaker in the DCEU lineup thus far, fan interest remains strong enough to put Justice League at the top of weekly DVD/Blu-Ray sales, which isn’t surprising: the film may not have had staying power in theaters, but it’s a no-brainer for comic and action movie fans to have at home. Also, this image above.

 

Meanwhile, in space:

  • Lord and Miller are getting an Executive Producer credit on Han Solo, which is actually a positive thing: easy to imagine them having no credit at all, given how much of the film was reshot. Meanwhile, Ryan Reynolds is getting a writing credit on Deadpool 2, which shows how much his personal sense of humor has helped shape the character’s success, I think.
  • These unfinished shots of the aborted Justice League film costumes are pretty interesting in that Fringe Universe sort of way. I don’t hate them as much as others on the supernet, that’s for sure. I certainly struggle with redesigns of major franchise characters, but the Superman look here reminds me of something hovering between Rance’s redesign and mine. Don’t pay any attention to this Batman design, though. It’s atrocious.
  • The new Deadpool 2 trailer is super fun. Cool to see the X-Force team in action. Plus, a bonus Skarsgard I had no idea was involved.
  • Doug Liman’s Youtube RED series Impulse is basically a redo of his Jumper film… and actually looks compelling, to be honest. And I didn’t hate Jumper.
  • Noah Hawley has hit it out of the park with Legion, so I’m inclined to be optimistic about his incredibly challenging Doctor Doom film challenge, which appears to be challenging.
  • Astro City has been optioned for a live-action TV series, or series of series, as the case may be. Astro City was an inspiration to me in my youth as far as worldbuilding goes, so I’m down with it.
  • Less than one month to go before Westworld S02, and the viral is viral.
  • Tessa Thompson and Chris Hemsworth reuniting in the Men in Black remake? Is this fan casting?! Excellent.
  • Pretty stellar ode to the stache here
  • In keeping with tradition, WB have announced a production schedule for a DCEU film without having the script or casting resolved. Batman, 2019.
  • It’s awesome that Elizabeth Olsen called out Empire on the savage photomanip of her face in these covers.

 

Thats all for today… off to drag Thor’s head around as I hunt for Infinity Stones in my disassembled bathroom subfloor.

Isle of Take My Money Now – Robots Root 15 Mar 2018

Isle of Dogs, 8 days and counting. CANNOT. BREATHE.

  • Jon Hamm joined Pale Blue Dot with Natalie Portman. I love it!
  • Or… maybe Deadpool 2 reshoots are because people want MORE of all the THINGS!
  • this is Super Monster Wolf and its real. Because Japan.

  • “Beep Bloop Bloam… Goodbye to your home” Another great bad lip reading song for The Star War.
  • Fan reaction to Ghostbusters wasn’t awesome, but Paul Feig has doubled down with Powderkeg.
  • I loved the last round of posters, cribbed though they may have been, but on these, they maintain the great weirdly prescient retro colorscheme, and also the drawn aspect of it… very nice.
  • Perfect looks sufficiently beautiful and unnerving. I’m in.
  • This Mondo series celebrating Batman:the Animated Series is wonderful. My favorite was the Cat and the Claw…
  • Danny Boyle has been officially revealed as the director of the final Daniel Craig-based Bond film… by Danny Boyle.
  • I still crave more info about this Russo + Keannu Reeves superhero project.
  • Here’s some interesting (and awesome) casting on Luke Cage S02 with some direct referencing to the storylines of Punisher, at least in the comics.
  • I will always require more Angela Bassett… though really, I don’t think, in all seriousness, you can top Michael B Jordan.

The Cavalcade of Helmetless Heroes – Robots Root 9 Mar 2018

 

Herewith, witness the Calvacade of Helmetless Heroes FFS!

 

Meanwhile, in space, this may be happening:

  • Honest Trailers does He-Man
  • My favorite How to Dad video yet.
  • I kinda like this promo pic for Daredevil S03… done by Joe Q, even. I’ ve always been a fan of lettering pushed into the environment of the piece.
  • I have to agree: if we couldn’t have an actually FORMIDABLE foes in Phasma, at least give her this scene to show her ruthlessness…
  • Now here’s the full trailer for Prospect, which still adorns my desktop as a background screen…
  • Killmonger concept art shows that the final version was the best choice. I still wish he kept the mask on the whole time… it was awesome.
  • More neural net fun, this time with sentence gradients.
  • Again, not a horror fan, but Endless looks pretty interesting. Lovecraftian doomsday cult business. Sure!
  • Dafne Keen is on board the new big budget take on His Dark Materials… I think they are abandoning the Golden Compass released prior…
  • Krysten Ritter says no Defenders S02 was planned, nor does one look likely. Depending on how you felt about S01, your mileage varies on this news…

  • Official confirmation direct from Patty Jenkins of Kristin Wiig joining WW2 as Cheetah. I’m intrigued!
  • Karl Urban confirmed that, as suspected, Alex Garland not only wrote Dredd, but stepped in and directed it once the director was canned.

  • Welp, pre-FX aside, Shazam’s costume does indeed appear to be the classic one, with the ubiquitous fine texture weave I hate so much. The fake muscles are weird, but I like the way they handled the lightning bolt, and the cool nod to the golden age books with those Talky Tawny symbols at the cape. The cape design itself, with the stiff hood, is creating a weird massing to his upper half, something I’ve worried about when designing a similar vibe on some TRDL characters with hoods…
  • Rumors are afoot that Jessica Drew may be brought into Spider-Man 2 as a female lead. I’d be down with it. Super down!
  • Neat: Jon Favreau has been announced as helming a Star Wars live action show, presumably for the new streaming service.
  • Mackenzie Davis from Halt and Catch Fire (and more recently, Blade Runner 2049) may have been tapped for Terminator 6… which bodes well for Terminator 6…
  • Elseworlds may be dead… but Black Label is new, and is basically the same thing. I like that Wonder Woman, if nothing else.
  • I love that Westworld not only embraces their obsessive fan community of conspiracy theorists and plot hypothesizers (like this guy) they are actively involving them/us in S02.
  • Reshoots on Deadpool 2… after bad test screenings… thats not good. As nice as the current pedigree technically is (re: our recent podcast about Atomic Blonde and John Wick 2) I wonder what we lost when Tim Miller left.
  • NEED
  • I remain uninterested in Superman comics, but I think BMB is right: optimism is what sets him apart from other characters, and needs to be the focus. All Star Superman was successful in this way.
  • I am SO DOWN with the Morrison/Quitely New X-Men costumes happening here. FINALLY.
  • Lastly, Lego Pacific Rim sweding! Excellent. I’d rather watch that.

 

Thats Just Lazy Writing – Robots Root 9 Feb 2018

Deadpool 2’s new trailer is pretty much spot on what you’d expect, and it works perfectly. Favorite detail: Chunk’s shirt from Goonies! I love it.

  • In Movies that Aren’t Black Widow News: Milla Jovovich has replaced Olivia Munn in Hummingbird. I think she’ll do a fine job but I was looking forward to Munn, who, for all the other obvious reasons i’d be on board about it, hasn’t had a series role like this to date and I was interested in seeing how she’d work.
  • The magical world of what Netflix buys and for what reason continues to intrigue me: for three different reports I’ve read, it appears Abrams and crew new the whole ‘slap Cloverfield references on a sci fi film’ experiment was collapsing, so they sold the project to Netflix for $50M, putting them in the green, as it exceeded their production budget and more importantly allowed them to sidestep the quagmire of marketing costs. Netflix paid a huge sum (though half of the total for Bright) even though they fully understood what they were getting. To say they bought it for post-Super Bowl buzz alone seems almost cynical to write, but that’s the space Netflix is operating in, with the original content streaming wars. We used to ooh and ahh and tssk  the outrageous prices for Super Bowl ad time, but that’s an incredible sum just to convince the 5 remaining non-Netflix subscribers to join, and the remaining 99.9999999% of the civilized world to stay on the service. Which is not to say I won’t watch the film (I will) and BTW, Robot-Kraken Podcast guest host Blake ‘Begin Again’ Simmons implored me to watch Bright, saying it was actually pretty good. SO! More on both projects in next month’s show, I’m guessing.
  • Drunk History features Nichelle Nichols which is pretty awesome. I’d watch it but something in it tripped the sensors in my current host country, so it’ll have to wait.
  • The most reassuring thing about the details on Harrison Ford’s advisory role on Han Solo is reading that he basically just bullshitted about his experience and what Lucas was always talking about, and then just said, go nuts! Paycheck for light aircraft repair bills… but also, no pushing about the impression or some big speech about looking like a young Harrison Ford, just insights into how Ford felt Solo ticked. Pretty great, actually.
  • Apparently the Venom trailer will be released while I’m flying across the Pacific. Either I’ll land to accolades or scorn. About the trailer, not my arrival. Everyone’s excited.
  • Jessica Jones S02 is imminent, and the full trailer looks great. Tone is consistent, actors remain solid… PLUS the addition of Expanse’s Terry Chen (Prax Meng) in a very different role than we last saw for him. That’s AWESOME.
  • So, not sure, but Titan looks like it might be B-Movie material. However it ALSO reads as a video summary of my entire TRDL Universe situation, more or less, so. There’s that! Accidental marketing.
  • I’m sure you’ve seen this by now, but this fan-made alternate opening for Force Awakens is pretty rad. Not for what it was intended, because the mystery and interest in the setting of Jakku was perfect as-is and didn’t need explaining. But rather, just to see them tow a Star Destroyer carcass to a jumk planet and then dump it. The movie made it feel, without explanations, like it crashed there from an aerial battle… never thought of it as wreckage being cleared from dangerous hyperspace traffic areas or what have you. Star Wars has always played loose with the idea of space junk. It’s only there when serving the plot.
  • Delos Destinations viral is making me HOT HOT HOT!
  • This whole exchange on ‘the mutant cure’ is hilarious.
  • An articulated, jet boot sorta havin, repulsor sorta usin, ultra rad Iron Man cosplay… but doods IT CHARGES HIS IPHONE TOO.

 

Finally, I leave you with this: yawning is contagious.

Kellys Got My Number – Robots Root 16 January 2018

Look, I haven’t seen ANY of the Ash vs. Evil Dead series, but this photo of a character called Kelly, played by Dana DeLorenzo, sold me.

Meanwhile, some Robot’s Root… as we prepare to prepare for Heroes and Villains Fanfest / Walker Stalker Con…

  • Surprising precisely no one, Krypton looks like garbage.
  • More Altered Carbon, this time a full trailer. I did not expect the man out of time situation.
  • Another day, another Director defection from Gambit. This, just as Fox released the schedule for the upcoming supers films in active development. It’s still pretty strange that Fox is putting Deadpool 2 within two weeks of Han Solo. Even if the negotiations for final contract on the merger/sale are going to take years, you’d think they’d already be moving these projects a bit farther apart…
  • Natalie Portman just hopped onto Pale Blue Dot, replacing Reese Witherspoon who remains producer. I love ‘affected-astronaut’ stories. They sort of remind me of the ‘haunted sailor’ thing from the 1700s-1800s…
  • Duncan Jones’ Mute hits Netflix next month, along with Altered Carbon. I’m never leaving the house. Except for when I leave the house.
  • It’s early yet, so I’ll be convinced when it’s officially greenlit, but the Black Widow film has been assigned a screenwriter, which is 100% more than they’ve done on this project so far. And, while I would prefer an espionage film similar in tone to Winter Soldier, it sounds like it might be a Lady Liberators situation.
  • I watched the entire thing with Maisie Williams on the show, and it was delightful.
  • They Were Never Here looks AAAAAMAZING
  • I missed the window on this, but be advised:
  • A Shane Black Avengers (60s version?) YES PLEASE.
  • More optimistic talk about the Deadwood film… which I’ll totally accept as fact at this point, because I NEED it.
  • I sold a few prints of Superman: Red Son this weekend, probably a little bit driven by this news
  • Ridley Scott’s The Terror series on AMC feels tailor-made for me. 1800s arctic naval suspense thriller with monster stalkery? YES.
  • These are amazing: Desktop dumpsters, sized for magazines and thereabouts. Ready for your graffiti skills. Or skillz, if you are young (or too old)… and while we’re at it, I also need a Vestaboard, THANKS.

We’re recovering from Heroes and Villains Fanfest/ Walker Stalker Con, but more to follow, including a show roundup…

A Viable Use for That Trident – Robots Root 22 Nov 2017

 

Some round-up root for you!

  • Brian Coldrick’s ‘Behind You’ series of one-page ghost stories is now available. Check them out. I’ve pre-ordered.
  • According to a few different primary sources, this amazing poster up top has been making the rounds at some Chinese theaters. I hope its true.
  • Cap needs to stop rolling up his sleeves. Those are just going to flop down in an aggravating fashion as soon as he starts doing anything.
  • An adult-oriented Harley Quinn animated series is in the works that just might be watchable. I mean, despite the fan art and such, not THAT kind of adult-oriented.
  • Next month, the event we’ve been awaiting for will finally be here: the story of moral struggle, identity crisis, family vs power, the oppression of an evil empire, fascinating weapons, white dresses… yes, Peaky Blinders is back!
  • I tend to believe what Christopher Eccleston says. He’s burned too many bridges by being blunt to be editing himself. If he says he did Thor 2 for the money, I do believe him. But when he says he was outraged to learn of hours of makeup prep for the role and that he was not informed, well… you’re embarrassing yourself, man.
  • Superfans are writing petitions and freaking out about what is or isn’t in Justice League. C’mon… I mean, it’s amusing reading, but still.
  • Daisy Ridley and Josh Gad are attached to the latter’s project called Super-Normal, described as a subversive take on the superhero genre. I’m into it.
  • Ellen Page is attached to a Netflix adaptation of Umbrella Academy, which I like very much. Everything about this, actually.
  • This is my favorite of the Star Wars VIII posters so far. The red cape, the color tones, the composition, and the fact that for once only one character is looking at you, and it almost doesn’t even look like a photoshop horror. I mean, almost.
  • This recent surprise thing that was cooked up for Jimmy Kimmel delighted me. Watch the video… PS these look a LOT like my early work.

 

  • Last time I posted about how good the Sideshow figure of Hela looked, and how saucy she sauntered around in general in the film. I forgot to provide evidence. Thus:
  • And related, you can have your own sex god headdress... head optional…
  • James Franco as Madrox the Multiple Man? OK sure. I’ll bite. Seems like fan casting but at this point, everything does.
  • Look, Zachary Levi is charming, intelligent and passionate. And he seems fully prepared for the gym onslaught. I’m optimistic, even as I have no interest in the character.
  • I love everything about the Deadpool 2 teaser, from the surreal Bob Ross situation to Negasonic’s hawt hair. EVERYTHING.
  • WANT WANT WANT so many times WANT. I’m starting a fund.
  • Fascinating article on why Cuphead’s early animation style can’t be divorced from the cultural trappings of the era. Also, good lord do I want to play this game.
  • Here’s a neat look at all of Blade Runner 2049’s miniature diorama sets.
  • McSweeney’s takes on Indiana Jones

  • Finally, my desktop screen for the week: the glicee print ‘Wellington, 1870’ featuring the cast of What we Do in the Shadows. So damn good, every detail.

 

Have a fine eat turkey or dont eat turkey day, friends

Kingsman is the Perfect Amount of Lunacy – Robots Root 8 August 2017

How are we supposed to wait two months. God. Damn. IOT.

We recorded a double-episode commentary for our Game of Toles series on Robot-Kraken last night, so expect to see that on itunes shortly!

Meanwhile, Robot’s Root!~

  • DEATH BY TRAY.
  • I sat through the whole thing despite my better judgement. This is one of those deals where I love that it exists, that this polar opposite of grim and gritty is so fully invested… but good lord.
  • In shocking news surprising precisely no one, Flash: Flashpoint of the Flashes or whatever will feature Wonder Woman and everyone else all at once. Because Marvel.
  • These comments about the ‘committee’ involved in story crunching prior to Fiege taking over with the MCU are interesting, not because of the fact that creators like Gunn had trouble with them, but rather because the committee in question was almost entirely the comics writing crew. I would have thought, years ago, that the questionable editorial in supers films would be exclusively from the suits, but that bringing in comics writers and creators would add the authenticity and some sort of continuity to the project. I mean, I know I thought so at the time. Now Gunn’s MCU stuff certainly is a standout, and he had some pretty clear freedom in the sequel, but interesting to imagine guys like Bendis being a PROBLEM in a script like this.
  • Kind of a big deal: Netflix just bought the rights to Millarworld… with Mark Millar involved in the development of content. I’ve been down for a Nemesis adaptation forever…
  • I actually thought these images of Cable from Deadpool 2 were more bosslogic manips… kind of surprised at the choices. Do love that arm. Speaking of, interesting that his stunt double seems to be manifesting the ‘Search for Hope storyline from the comics, which fits with that beater teddy bear on his belt. Hope in Deadpool 2? Sure why not.
  • I STILL cannot believe they brought Young Justice back. We have so many fan campaigns for such things, and I know the creators were pushing hard for the campaign… but wow. Very gratifying for fans.
  • Now look, I haven’t seen the Mummy yet, and I heard it was a hot mess but was hoping to find something entertaining up in there. But I can’t believe they would go to this much effort at trying to build a film franchise, trot out all the players they’ve assembled for the different films, to the press, and then now Mummy falls apart and the whole thing implodes
  • A film I’m watching with interest, Ad Astra, featuring Brad Pitt and Tommy Lee Jones in space, just added Ruth Negga in a mystery role. I’m stoked!
  • Don’t know if this is substantiated yet, but supposedly Daniel Craig elected to ease off of the wrist-slashing and agree to two more Bond films. Not one. Two. At like $100M salary per or whatever.
  • What’s this: Milla Jovovich in the Hellboy relaunch as the Blood Queen? Yes please.
  • Finally, good news for most X-Files fans: mythology episodes are out. I mean, I liked them. But I was in the minority. The SPACE minority.

That’s all for now. All of you reading this on Robot-Kraken, kindly BEND THE KNEE, thank you.
