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.

I’ve Seen R Rated Material Glitter in the Dark Near the Tannhäuser Gate – Robots Root 11 august 2017

Best news of the day: Blade Runner 2049 has been given an R-Rating. I cannot be more pleased by ratings news related news about Blade Runner. As far as news goes. About ratings.

also…

Episode 035 of the Robot-Kraken Podcast is up: Thom and guest-host Blake ‘Ballista’ Simmons discuss Game of Toles S07 eps 03 and 04…while Kris attempts to evade dragonfire at home. Check it out on itunes, Stitcher, and here.

 

Meanwhile, Robot’s Root!

  • Avengers 4 has started production. Some say this will be Infinity War Part 2 despite their dodge about it being a two-part film… I hold out hope that it’s a variant on Secret Invasion. We shall see.
  • The word on the street, and by word on the street I mean news in my browser, is that No Man’s Sky is getting an update that offers story mode and some limited multiplayer. Maybe I’ll break the seal on my copy now. With all my free time. COPIOUS free time.
  • Three new characters from the Star Wars universe have been revealed, devoid of context, as part of a media release about a Captain Phasma novel. Marvel at them! Speculate! Be vaguely disappointed later!
  • What standard nerd among us wouldn’t want to fold in sounds from TRAPPIST-1 into their own music mixes? I used to capture source recording samples for electronic artists to use in their ambient works (or ambient chainsaw, as my lovely wife declares) but I never graduated to making my own.
  • Lemmy has been (further) immortalized.
  • I LOVE them Praetor guards in Last Jedi. There’s some really interesting design work going on here, beyond the obvious historical callbacks.
  • Tim Miller has signed on to direct Neuromancer, in 2032… or something… I mean, it’s a way off… probably doomed… but it COULD happen.
  • Jonathan Hickman was particularly candid about Marvel canceling Fantastic Four on the heels of their dispute with Fox over the film franchise butchery. I don’t blame him. He’s made a career out of some of the best modern FF stories ever, and I really loved what he was doing. But it’s kind of a peak into the sausage factory.
  • Kind of a cool bonus scene about Zune management.
  • Listen, I LOVED Jeff Bridges as Stane… but I’m glad they weren’t ambiguous about his bitter end.
  • Inhumans has inevitably become THE project to hate this year… read this regarding the garbage fire panel about the show. It’s highway crash level interesting.
  • The screen tests for RDJR’s early Tony Stark interpretations are, yes, insufferable, but also interesting in that this is how I feel the character would have presented if played by Tom Cruise, as once intended.

That’s all for today. Keep ordering those noodles and watch out for skinjobs!

Bonus Pitch:

If you want more standard nerd news and reviews, check out Friends of R-K, Second Union at their main site, or on Facebook, or on Twitter! Good stuff. In fact, recently Thom of Third Rail Design Lab / Robot-Kraken (self promotion alert) was featured in the Second Union Heroes and Villains Fanfest/Walker Stalker Portland review

Robot-Kraken Podcast E035 – Game of Thrones E03/E04 Roundup

READY FOR SOME FIRE? I was not. Idaho is burning, with a large wildfire approaching the house, so Thom got together with our guest host Blake to pick up the pieces and assemble a wagon train full of gold, food and talk about the two newest episodes of Game Of Thrones! So sit back, or stand on a horse and listen to their take on episodes 3 and 4 – THE QUEEN’S JUSTICE and THE SPOILS OF WAR!

In these episodes we get Stark reunions, smart moves, war, military maneuvers, sea battles, banking talk, sassy old ladies and no knee-bending! Oh yeah, AND A GIANT DRAGON!

For those of our listeners that are NOT Game of Thrones fans, fear not – our regular massive episodes will still be coming, so you’ll still get your usual installments of geek news, reviews and art talk along with a few con reports and guests stars.

Ah Said No Peekin – Robots Root 30 May 2017

Last night we completed another session of the Robot-Kraken Podcast recordings for inclusion in the June episode. Special guests! Special liquors! Hot messes!

In the meantime, however, this is Robot’s Root for 30 May 2017:

  • I was talking with One Lung this morning (or typing) about films we’re looking forward to, beyond all the obvious marquee stuff coming out, and that led me back to trailers. So here, have some, for science:  Trailer 1: Baby Driver
  • Trailer 2: Logan Lucky. “ah said no PEEKIN!”
  • Trailer 3: Hitman’s Bodyguard
  • BONUS: Shimmer Lake on Netflix. IN!
  • This supposed brief on the new Silver and Black disaster-in-waiting Sony is cooking up for their Spider-Man Universe Without Marvel or Spider-Man or Something sounds sketchy. Like fanfic stuff.
  • Surprising precisely no one, SW VIII has been postponed while they violently rewrite the entire thing.
  • First look at Lockjaw from Inhumans: yep, giant bulldog. Missing the signature tuning fork and collar though, which is weird. So many weird choices on this project. I still haven’t recovered from the wig.
  • A little less than a month to go and we’ll have new Preacher. YASS.
  • In another (rather odd) example of studios remaking instead of building anew, Amazon just bought a series based on the film Hannah which (I haven’t seen, actually) I hear is based on every other young teen orphan assassin trope. Not that I don’t want to see the film. But I’d rather see original content greenlit.
  • The thicken plots… possibly… now they are admitting Joss Whedon has been quietly working on JL for awhile. This could be a sign that they knew and were planning to transition Snyder stepping down on a schedule, OR that he was already on board for script/shooting corrections. I do think it’s no coincidence that he was randomly announced as the writer/director of Batgirl this spring…
  • I’m half-way through the current glorious season of Silicon Valley, and I can’t conceive of the next season moving forward without TJ Miller. Dammit.
  • Really odd one here: Rosario Dawson is supposedly being courted for the role of Dr. Ceclia Reyes in the New Mutants film. It feels… fan speculationish… given that she’s already in the Marvel Universe (one of them) as a nurse… but hey, +1 always works for me.

And with that, I’m off to see if I can scrape some of this rum off of the inside of my cranial cavity…
