Boba Fett? WHERE?! – Robots Root 26 October 2018

When the Mandalorian was announced, I thought I could just make out the distant din of the death drums for the Boba Fett film. And so!

 

ROOT!

  • The latest in the list of films that should not be remade… has an apparent script
  • Brad Pitt as Rasputin? Rachel Weisz as anyone? This Kingsman prequel sounds better than I had ever imagined possible. Which was a low bar, admittedly.
  • This Jimmy Kimmel/Avengers comic took me back to reading those from my youth, like Letterman (the homage) and similar ones. Trippy to see it in a contemporary setting, as it looks so tacky today. I mean, it coasts on the homage, which is at least something, I guess. I’m not one who likes the dips into reality in comics. The Presidents that are obvious references to the real world, or even the 9-11 tie-ins…(grouchy, I know)
  • This Mulan art show has some pretty great projects. Check em out!
  • Alexander Skarsgard has joined Godzilla vs. King Kong, so thats a thing. I’ve lost track. Is this AFTER Planet Kong or Deathmatch of Monsters 3000 or whatever it is? Millie Bobby Brown is in the cast, so that’s what threw me. Same film? Different film?  Who knows. How could we possibly ever know.
  • I can’t believe it took THIS long, but here’s a Gundam kit with a robotics pack. Love it. Where was S.T.E.M. when I was a kid dammit tole.
  • This was kind of a surprise: they found more material from Ray Harryhausen, and are parlaying that into a new film. Of course, it appears to be all of his Grade Echhh material.
  • Cool article on ‘the Monsters of Climate Change‘… I never noticed that Annihilation’s Mimic Bear had a human skull fused up in there! (More on that in our latest Robot-Kraken Podcast!)
  • I’m intrigued by the Big Kill… I mean, it looks like a multiplayer RPG set in the Old West. Hilarious.
  • The Big Lebowski will never not exist. We at least have THAT.

 

That’s all for tonight. It’s not too early to get your HAL 9000 Xmas Ornament. I’m already on it, cousins.

Sick Sled, Thor – 15 Feb 2017

Image

I’ve waited all my life to see Thor tool around on an IMLA*
link!
Too bad he wasn’t wearing yhis.

*Indoor Mountain Bike Lounging Apparatus

Meanwhile:

1. Planet Hulk appears to include Jarnbjorn, the giant axe Thor’s been carrying around after he lost the virtue juice to wield Mjolnir in the comics (where Jane Foster is the current female Thor)… I wonder of he will lose it in the film and switch to the axe. I like that idea. The concept art for Infinity War has him using the axe. I’m disappointed Hela doesn’t have that cool black facemask thing though otherwise it looks like a a great adaptation of her look.
link! and link!

2. First significant female droid? Since when did they have gender?!? link!

3. Kerry Washington is rumored to be in the mix for Domino in Deadpool 2, which is quite a deviation from the previous scoop. Seems like an odd fit. I like her enough, and can see her in a supers role, but I’m not sure about this kind of farcical deal? link!

4. Do you KNOW how much I want a well-done Moon Knight film? Or Netflix series? I have so many ideas. So does James Gunn, apparently. link! Note, astute and current listeners of the Robot-Kraken Podcast have by now heard that we did a Fantasy Casting for a Moon Knight project. You can check it out here: http://robot-kraken.com/robot-kraken-po … lable-now/

5. “Power. Greed. Devious. Needs. High stakes. Cash money. Dope boy. Rap money. Forgive me for my wrongs, I have just begun.” Wow. Suicide Squad EP Stephen Mnuchin is now in line for the Presidency. link! WHAT IS EVEN.

6. Apparently the new Jaegers in PR 2 look like generic post-anime Taiwanese knockoff figures. The interesting designs for some of the previous film’s mecha were its selling point. link!

7. Check out WETA’s Labyrinth board game. It’s amazing. I’m nerding out. And I don’t even LIKE that film. link!

8. One of my favorite games in High School was BATTLECHESS, combining chess with, well, battle animations. Warhammer 40K: Regicide is taking that to the Nth degree, looks like. Available on Steam. link!

9. How about a VR model of Deckard’s apartment? link!. Note no early 80’s Sean Young going all Gibson Girl in there. Bummer.

Rogue One Passes the Bechdel Test in 25 Seconds 15 Apr 2016

“Based on careful analysis, I can conclude that Rogue One includes both stars and wars.”
Twitter responses to the Force One trailer have been pretty good.

Fabian Wagner, of GoT, has boarded Justice league as cinematographer. So that’s one thing going for them.

I’m sure there are other R-Rated animated films out there, but I wasn’t aware of them, and I’m frankly surprised DC-WB would allow this to happen in their franchise. Pretty cool.

Seems legit, for a fair amount of this country.

I know these days, with the resources and commitment available, I shouldn’t be surprised by cosplay anymore, but wow, that’s a good costume recreation. I appreciate the blackwashing of the seams.

Cameron now says 4 sequels to Avatar are in development. I don’t know. I’m not opposed to seeing more Avatars, but these sorts of statements are akin to McG stepping up and announcing 33 more Charlie’s Angels films. To crickets. It’s the answer to the unasked question.

Here’s a pair of articles that followed Affleck’s confirmation as director, co-writer, and star of a solo Batman film. Both raise some good points: Batman being old limits the narrative on the film, and that Affleck’s eye on the material will be a welcome change.
