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 notable 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.

Thats Not Silly String – Robots Root 22 May 2018

The new West Coast Avengers is everything I want in a supers comic today. I’m delighted. Also one of my favorite artists currently working, and a great writer. Optimistic!

Also, for science:

  • Well thats great. They can RUN now, jump through holes in obstructions, and get back on their feet. Its cute that they aren’t admitting these are all prototype work for future cybersoldiers, and oh, by the way, I’ll be in my quite penetrable bunker.
  • I first heard the term “tank paratrooper” in the gag final punchline of a first season Ren & Stimpy. It’s even better in the real…
  • Here’s a cool video about the costume design on Shape of Water and others.
  • I had enough trouble as a kid dealing with the New Gods (as much as I adore Kirby now) so Eternals were WAY off the back for me. But hey, good luck! I’m on board if they do it right…
  • I don’t know if its because I’m traveling, or because I dislike the excessive abuse of the service animals system, but this struck me funny. I liked it.
  • Lung recently informed me he wasn’t a fan of Morena Baccarin because she has, to him, mean eyes. I’m usually focused on her lips and other bits, but anyway, that’s all neither here nor there because I’d be fully supportive of her playing Catwoman in that Gotham City Sirens film…
  • Here’s Bandai’s armored cats series, which, had they been available when I was in Japan, I’d have bought out like the whole supply.
  • Everyone needs a brutalist garden gnome, I says.
  • Tiny Superman. I’m jealous I didn’t think of it.
  • First, the new She-Ra is teased and it looks a bit stylized, so people got grumpy. Then the new Thundercats was revealed and it’s chibi so the all-srs fans freaked out. I can’t believe it. I mean, srsly. It looks great. CALM down. I actually enjoyed that behind-the-scenes featurette. Not the topknot tho.
  • best news of my day, tho? BEST news? Amazon picked up The Expanse. FFS that’s a relief u guise.
  • Courtesy of Lung, this custom operable Lego Tron Light Cycle display is dope. My favorite part is the little slab of light behind the cycle.

Finally, I leave you with the trailer to the Happytime Murders, which is proving to be as batshit crazy as I’d hoped!

Seppuku by Saarlac – Robots Root 17 April 2018

I’m ALL about this samurai/Mandalorian situation back there. Just give me THAT movie, thanks.

Meanwhile, for science:

  • I’ll be in my bunker.
  • With Gabriel Luna’s casting as the new Terminator, and the most recent casting of other actors of Hispanic culture, I’m suddenly much more intrigued about what they’re up to… this could be interesting, or a garbage fire, or an interesting garbage fire.
  • I love Michael Mann, and how he can turn any subject matter into Heat, which suits me fine. This time, he’s going after Paul le Croix. I smell some Black Hat vibes.
  • I don’t get the sense this is a very serious effort, but a heist film set in the world of comic conventions, released the same day as Avengers? That’s pretty brilliant strategy.
  • Hotel Artemis, because Jeff Goldblum, that’s why.
  • Neuromancer and chemistry, as explained by one who knows, about one who used.
  • Ten years from now, we’ll have chemical attack weapons that obliterate the plastics in enemy armor, weapons and gear. Marked.
  • Cathy Yan has been tapped to direct Birds of Prey… which apparently is not the same movie as Gotham City Sirens. More females behind the pen and the camera, thats a good thing!
  • Things aren’t looking good for the (near) future of the Mad Max franchise… the lawsuit continues.
  • Domhnall Gleeson may take the lead roll in the adaptation of Kitchen, which stokes me. Also, I saw the 4th Harry Potter film for the first time, and kept yelling at my family that Mad Eye Moody was General Hux’s daddy. No one seemed interested.

You Have 3 Seconds to Comply: Robots Root 11 April 2018

 

Dig this new Mondo poster: ROBOCOP by Josan Gonzalez

Meanwhile, in space, all of this is happening right now!

  • Taika Waititi confirmed that he’s not adapting the Akira film, but rather going after the voluminous book series. I find that interesting. There’s so much more THERE there, and also gives him more to do than just a remake.
  • Speaking of ambitious, Apple is adapting the I, Robot series of works from Isaac Asimov.
  • Woody Harrelson may or may not be playing Carnage in the Venom film. I say DO IT.
  • Transformers cartoon opening credits, shot with the toys in stop-motion WINNNNNNS.
  • The Deadwood film production just got a tax credit. This gives them a timetable, which is a good thing.
  • Christina Hodson has been named as the new Batgirl writer. This is also a good thing.
  • Boss Level sounds really neat or really terrible.
  • If you want to know secret stuff that isn’t surprising stuff, regarding Iron Spidey in Avengers: Infinity War, read on. In other Marvel news, I think this poster shot shows that Evangeline Lily should have been a Marvel heroine years and years ago. She looks really motivated.
  • Eric Bana is set to star in the first season of Dirty John, some sort of anthology-based true crime show on Bravo that isn’t True Detective on HBO, and inexplicably features a character name as the title, which begs questions about it’s anthology nature.
  • This is pissing all the right people off: Westworld creators said they’d let Reddit superfans in on the active development of S02, which starts later this month… they announced a few days ago that their plan was to circumvent the huge hunt for answers and easter eggs and spoilers by actually giving the subreddit access to a video that explains the S02 plot, so they can opt-in if desired, as long as they keep it to themselves and don’t leak it to mainstream press. Then last night they released a video, which ended up being an elaborate Rick-Roll… LITERALLY… I love it. Speaking of, you know I’m down with S02’s Shogunworld.
  • The Shazam costume may or may not be objectively bad… but I liked Zachari Levi’s comments about the intrinsic insecurity of pre-haters.
  • I was totally into it, until I realized the pilot’s legs are fake and its just a stilt construct. I mean, not JUST, but you know.
  • Moviepass users (aka Deeply Dapper) rejoice: AMC theaters were just unlocked. That’s pretty huge.
  • The BBC is launching a big budget early 20s adaptation of War of the Worlds. I’m 300% on board…
  • I initially dismissed Bosslogic’s manip of Krasinski and Blunt as Reed and Sue of the FF as being too current, given the obsession with their current film… but looking at it more closely, I’d be down with all of these casting ideas. I still think Richards needs to be older, greying and aloof… but even more than that, they need to be a believable couple… and this pair have proven they can be, on screen…
  • More featurette film stuff from Isle of Dogs, this time about the real on-set canine crew….
  • Finally, trailer roundup:
    • The Meg, which I always assumed would be terrible, actually amused me. So much reminding me of Jaws 3 in 3D… but also Deep Blue Sea, which I actually never saw. I do love 4th wall characters like Rainn Wilson’s one here, just saying it like it is.
    • Similarly, I dismissed Upgrade when the teaser came out awhile back as being a B-movie… but it does have some interesting elements in it. Logan Marshall-Green affects an unusual stance when the AI is doing the fighting for him, almost a hangjawed expression and slouched neck against a rigid posture, but he was Shocker #1 in Homecoming and soldier X in Prometheus, so let’s give it a shot.
    • Terminal appears to be based on a pitch like: “Imagine Atomic Blonde but with Margot Robbie and made to look like Lock Stock plus we’ll include one of those actors even, for authenticity“… but I’m still on board.

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…

Three Mix Tapes Are the Proper Quantity of Mix Tapes – 21 April 2017

Well, good news if you are a Guardians fan… James Gunn is writing and directing the third film. That’s the longest contiguous production in Marvel’s history. I love it.

Robot’s Root, 21 April 2017:

  • ‘Those people who said this was as good as Empire must really be into file formats’ cue Saw throwing stink eye at his thumb drive. Pretty Honest. THEIR WEAKNESS TO STICKS.
  • Great study on ‘What Makes Always Sunny Still Funny’… I mean, YEAH, but I never really thought about how well defined the family lives of the characters were in forming their individual character traits.
  • Earthling Cinema explains The Arrival, I movie I loved, but not as much as this explanation of it.
  • Ian McShane threw HBO under the bus, saying they already have a Deadwood shooting script. GOD DAMN IOT!
  • If you enjoy Game of Thrones, and if you enjoy generating fan theories about WTF, then you may enjoy this Fan Theory Generator. I tried it out. Legit:

Petyr Baelish is secretly dead

Who wants Sansa dead? Cersei, who believes that she had a part in Joffrey’s murder. Who has been spending a lot of time with Sansa lately? Petyr Baelish. It’s possible that Cersei has sent a Faceless Man after Sansa, and this Faceless Man has killed Petyr and taken his face. He fed Sansa to the Boltons because he was dead certain (spot the pun!) that she wouldn’t survive them. She did, so now he’s hatched Plan B of being right next to her in Winterfell so that he can finally eliminate her.

  • No gusto, but I’m not the target market for a teen soap Cloak and Dagger show.
  • Best quote about why it’s better Jeff Goldblum isn’t in blueface in Thor: Ragnatole:
Goldblum has transcended acting to that place where he’s invited to films to basically be himself. Making him blue, while comics accurate, would have just put an artificial barrier between us and what is surely going to be an epic performance.
  • From Lung: The Kraken Piescraper. YUSSSS
  • You may not be the target market, but as someone who routinely plays Hans Zimmer soundtracks nearly every day, I’m disappointed to find out he actually brought the orchestra to SF when I wasn’t looking. Previously when the tour was announced it was only select cities. Anyway, I’d have definitely sprung for it. Check out the Inception performance at Coachella, otherwise known as the Burning Man for Rich Hollywood Types Who Dont Realize The Organizer Funds Anti LGBT Organization and Is Linked to the Kochs.
  • 10 more X-Files will be X-Filing away in the near future. Let’s hope they’re the good kind.
  • A rejiggered Passengers that may solve some plot points. Did I post this? Anyway I liked the film anyway. But here.
  • Much is being made of Joss Whedon saying he’s obsessed with Barbara Gordon’s ‘damage’ that led her to becoming so hardcore as Batgirl, which I think is a misnomer. He was saying it in the context of: what drives a young woman without a tragic past to enter this life, in the absence of the default everyone’s-a-superhero comics world? Not damage so much as drive. But since Gordon is linked to Killing Joke (which, at least temporarily, ENDED her Batgirl role) it immediately means everyone assumes Whedon will make Gordon a survivor of something. On the other hand, one of the best things about the Batgirl Year One series several years ago was that it effectively showed Barbara setting out as Batgirl because she wanted the thrill and the freedom. It was FUN. I’d love to see that on film.
  • The pedigree for Captain marvel is getting interesting. One writer from GoG, one from Inside Out, and co-indie directors from Mississippi Grind.
  • Mireille Enos, Greg Kinnear and Steve Buscemi have joined ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’ which adds some heft to the anthology series…

  • Lastly, I leave you with this. See you in the bunker.

Because M-16s – Robots Root 11 April 2017

Here’s Kurse using M-16s for no reason, straight out of Williamson’s Thor run… wow!

Listen, if this is a TEASER trailer, I don’t want to see any trailer trailers. I’m already sold on this film just on the pedigree of the director, the Thor roomate shorts, and the punchline in this above. And that’s saying something, as the Kirby-meets-80s-Galleria-Mall aesthetic is not my personal favorite.

 

Meanwhile, Robot’s Root:

  • Much knee-jerk hullabaloo has been made of Disney’s patent filings for a soft interactive robot. Westworld! They cry. However, this is basically an R/C airbag concept, so not only would I suggest we consider Baymax from Big Hero 6, which was the best thing ever, but in fact that’s the first intended application of this design: a Baymax toy. So. I’m on board!
  • Terminator is done. NO ITS NOT he says. It’s sleeping.
  • Lung teased me with the Robot Soldier toy coming out, and how, as tenuous landed gentry, we have no disposable income for such things. To hell with that, I’ve seen heist films (and none of their endings) what could go wrong.
  • According to two reference links I cannot access in Indonesia, apparently Captain Marvel will be the ‘most powerful character in the MCU’ which I certainly hope is hyperbole. I mean, I’m hot to see Brie Larson kick ass as much as the next nerd, but let’s settle down.
  • I haven’t been following ANY content-related stuff related to GitS, though I’ve certainly read about the disastrous box office, and the general criticisms. I reserve judgment for when Lung and I see it later this month. In the meantime: hilarious rework of the trailer mixed with review blips (the BAD ones)…
  • King Conan appears to be DOA. I’m disappointed. It was the best, most rational use of older Schwartzenegger (sp) in any of these films he’s doing. Aged, broken down Conan. COME ON. It would have been awesome. Oh well oh well oh well.
  • Listen, I may be the only long-time follower of the Weekly Planet podcast, but I mentioned earlier that Mr. Sunday Movies (James Clement) finally revealed himself as part of the Movember fundraiser/ podcasting network lunch event a few weeks ago. The video is up now, in addition to the early photos. The 360 camera footage is pretty amazing, BTW. I need to look into these devices. I’ve never seen a pan-style wide angle video shot and released on youtube before. It’s worth checking out for that if nothing else. I knew all that VRML work I did in 1996 would pay off… sort of…
  • Josh Boone’s New Mutants film has entered pre-production. Anyone over 40 will probably be thrilled.

Signaling My Intent to Smash Superman on the Right – 160621

Image

Lots of news coming out of that weird press event where they flew all the journalists to London for a big Justice league ballyhoo.
– Justice League is supposedly to be ‘lighter’ and ‘more fun’
– Batman is a changed man, now optimistic and filled with hope after witnessing Superman’s sacrifice (uh-oh)
– It’s a collect-the-team story to battle a cataclysmic threat, including Steppenwolf, Luthor and of course, Darkseid.
– yet, producer Deborah Snyder claims there will only be one ‘Justice League’ movie, and had never planned for more than one. Yet yet, Snyder still claims another film is coming in 2019, and of course they planned two movies, they even announced Parts 1 and 2 earlier this year. Makes me wonder if they are playing coy, that this is Justice league, per se, and the ext one is Crisis or some such.
-Willem Dafoe is confirmed as Zulku, the aristocrat ruling Atlantis when Aquaman is out gallivanting around. I suspect he will betray Aquaman, because why ELSE would you cast Willem Dafoe?
-designers spoke about multiple batsuit tweaks, an interesting layering concept, and goggles to be used to simulate the white of the eyes thing (good idea):

“We loved the way in the comic books he’s always drawn with white flashes of eyes, so we thought of cool ways of doing it. We liked the way that they catch the light and give that classic image from the comic books. But he’ll also be piloting a new vehicle that he will need these goggles for.”

And despite ALL OF THAT, no one has thought to remove the reflector from the front corners or the jacked up Batmobile…
