Solo Trailer Revealed – Robots Root 4 Feb 2018

It’s finally coming this Monday, they say. Or they lie, and it’s a Superbowl thing. Or they lie, and this project doesnt even exist.

 

Meanwhile, this is happening:

  • “Action that looks like two Radio Shacks doing kama sutra in a hurricane” – one of the best Honest Trailer lines ever.
  • We’ve Known BMB was moving to DC for awhile now, but it’s official: he’s wandering into the Superman quagmire. What concerns me more, though, is that there are implications that he may be bringing his creator-owned stuff with him. I very much do not want Powers absorbed by DC. Somebody talk me off the ledge, please.
  • I’m beside myself. Normally I’m disinterested in dark and grimy redesigns of classic characters as the solution to film adaptation. But in this one instance, these concepts for a He-Man project look pretty amazing. Cool ways to rationalize the toy elements that make no sense. I know I’ve argued multiple times that most of the designs should just be left alone and ran with, but still.
  • I don’t hate JJ Abrams so the fact that HBO bought Demimonde is fine with me. Budgets!
  • I dislike his modern movies, and I’m weirded out by his bulging face when he talks, but. “Aight potatoes, aight carrots, aight turpentine.” I think I need to know more about Scottish shopping habits.
  • I’m including this since we’ve made a general tradition of butchering her name on the Robot-Kraken Podcast, but this segment on ‘Galspalining’ cracked me up.
  • Look, dont let the fart sounds fool you: teaching Orcas to make human sounds is a B A D . I D E A.
  • The fundamental problem with Venom... which is why they are TOTALLY sneaking Spider-Man in there.
  • Fun, contextual easter egg from Doctor Strange over here.

 

Finally, my entire world feels like this right now.

Shatter Glass and Officer Sass – Robots Root 4 Oct 2017

This might be my favorite Mondo poster of anything ever. OMG

Meanwhile, Robot’s Root:

  • Lung turned me onto the Honest Trailer for Blade Runner, which cracked me up quite a bit. As usual, the names of the actors are the best. Also: ENHANCE!
  • Also, this is purportedly the moment Ford accidentally connected with Gosling while filming the one scene.
  • I enjoyed Lucy. For all of it’s logic faults, it was a return to form for what Besson does best. Sequel still in the works, according to a recent shareholders meeting. Interesting though that the budget is being compressed after Valerian tanked. Which I still need to see.
  • Even though american audiences are unlikely to be familiar with most of these properties, some part of me loves the idea of these (maybe) out of continuity mashups of the different characters in a given company’s catalog. Reminds me of the Capcom fighting games, or some of those weird cartoons from the 70s where everyone is in the same cannonball run style derby. Plus, Gatchaman!
  • And so it follows: a few days after WB/DC insisted in interviews that their movies weren’t necessarily part of a cohesive universe after all, now Universal is taking the same approach, after the collapse of the Mummy, insisting that Bride of Frankenstein will be a standalone film. Huh.
  • Mako Mori is back in Pacific Rim Uprising, which is good news, since I always planned on drawing Rinko Kikuchi in that Jaeger piloting gear… for reasons.
  • I’m so down for DARK is isn’t even funny. I mean, it really isn’t. At all. It’s scary as hell. But I loves me some time horror.
