Load-Bearing Reference Material – Robots Root 22 Oct 2018

Geoff Darrow is abandoning THIS space in Chicago… and moving to France. HOT DAMN I want to go to there.

Meanwhile, science. Space science:

  • Ana de Armas, 99% of the non-Ryan Gosling sexiness in Blade Runner 2049, has hopped onto Knives Out. I’m telling you, this movie will be a thing.
  • Capture the Lab.
  • With the exception of the ongoing weirdness of the cape straps, the new all-black Superman costume from Supergirl is probably the best looking suit in the modern era yet. So little unnecessary texture…
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 3: Hot Christmas… well, despite using the script, I fear that this movie may be redubbed hot ass if they don’t figure something out. And not in a good way.
  • The millisecond after T’Challa ashed up in Avengers: Infinity War, my first thought was SHURI in the suit.
  • Miss Bala looks good to me. I like the setting and the way Gina Rodriguez is sucked in. Optimism is key. Plus, I liked her before, but really got into her after Annihilation.
  • Saddest thing about the momentary loss of Iron Fist is the lack of Jessica Henwick on screen as Colleen Wing. And now that Luke Cage has also been canceled, signs do continue to point to the Disney service: the contract renewal for the Marvel Netflix shows just so happened to be at the same time as the streaming service launch. Now, let’s just skip to the end and get a Daughters of the Dragon (and a Heroes for Hire, why not) series at Marvel properly.
  • The best thing about Grant Hurlburt’s project to draw one frame from each movie he sees is how he elevates some of the dogs.
  • A well-timed look back at when a Venom on screen was even worse.
  • SPOILER: Only follow if you’ve seen more than the first half of Daredevil S03. PS this season is AMAZING so far. Just next level. Two scenes so far have been legendary. This talks about one of them.

That’s all for today. Brought to you by the 33% Nation of Tumbler wheels.

Well, this concept art proves that Ryan Gosling as Doctor Strange would have been the wrong choice. Sometimes I felt like Benedict Cumberbatch felt a little too egotistically knowing as Stephen Strange, and not passive enough (meaning that my read of the character from the comics has always been that he has one foot in the other dimensions, one here, and was very formal and polite in his responses to people; the movie version is RDJR lite) but as much as I love watching Gosling, and I DO, the brows don’t have it. I WOULD love him as another character though.

Meanwhile:

– Eagle-eyed fans believe that this shot from Jyn Erso’s flashbacks suggest she was in Padme’s apartment on Coruscant. I think it was just a re-use of a matte painting FFS. In the post Lostian world, not every thing is a thing. link!

– Spider-Man suit upgrades formally detailed here! I hope they don’t go overboard.

– I don’t know what to make of this photo. Cyborg looks like a Michael Bay Transformer cluttered mess, Flash looks bendy, Bats looks massive and WW frail. It’s just a screenshot. link!

– Look! Actress had orange hair once, references old animated property, internets go WILD! link!

– Oddly, there was more rejiggering than usual on DC’s Powerless. It’s now Better Off Ted apparently. link!

– I’m so down with MUTE I can’t even. link!

– Jeremy Renner wants a Black Widow/ Hawkeye film, because of course he does. But we all do. The team ups are what make the Marvel films so great, and these two are a good fit for a spin-off film, thematically. I’d be on board. Also, paychecks! link!

– Behold the plushy Beholder! link!

– I waited a few days on this one, to see if it would be debunked, but nothing yet: Woody Harrelson as Han Solo’s mentor? link!

That’s all for today! As a reminder, the current TRDL Art Jam is The Wolverine [X-23] and the latest podcast for Robot-Kraken, the first for 2017, is now available!

Wes Anderson Makes Everything Better – 21 Dec 2016

Image

Today is the dawn of a NEW ERA. Hope returns to the world. Behold: Wes Anderson rambles his way through announcing his next project. YAY! link!

Meanwhile:

– Photos of Blade Runner 2 are continuing to seep into the interwebs, further showing Ryan Gosling suited up and fully immersed in the world and Harrison Ford’s Decker (retired) apparently not requiring a costume at all at this point. At least he took the earring out. link! … I do appreciate the effort they are putting into reminding us that Roger Deacon is on the project, and largely, green screens are not. link!

– Matthew McCoughnehhysysyee notes again that he’d be down to reprise his role as Rust Cole, in True Detective, because OF COURSE HE WOULD. It was solid gold. link!

– Lung and I have been lamenting the further superheroification of Batman’s costume in this pic. It’s not all bad: he has two suits in Justice League: one being the same deal as BVS but with more black, and one being the ‘TACTICAL SUIT” which is code for MORE ARMOR BITS AND RANDOM SEAMS. link!

– Another pic of Katherine Waterston on the set of Alien:Covenant is out, and she looks suitable blanched and stark, as she should for this project (it’s like some sort of before/after companion to how she looked in Inherent Vice. While alive. Anyway, also, James Franco is in it? What? link!

Image
-This is a feed you can find if you look for it. NOT A WOLF. Kills me.

– Netflix is tripping me out how they are able to have projects in production without people even knowing about them. For example, here’s another one: Travelers. What??? Anyway, i’m on board, i just can’t believe I didn’t know they had time cops or whatever cooking and we didn’t even know. link!

Image
– Lastly, just in time for the holidays: recreating the more dangerous scenes from Home Alone. We just watched this with the kids. Zoe is the target age and was cackling and rolling around. Matteo was too young and just stared at it and said things like ‘is that ALLOWED?’ (answer: no)… link!

Home Again Home Again Jiggity Jig – 20 Dec 2016

Image

Welp, while I would argue that visuals would be the LEAST of the risk factors in bringing a Blade Runner sequel to life, I’m 100% on board and plan to love it. link!

Meanwhile, in space:

– The lead (1st officer) in ST: Discovery has been cast. A favorite of fans of Walking Dead: Sonequa Martin Green…
link!

:::

– Pretty good example of nerd press going apeshit as they’ve been manipulated into doing: Megan Fox buys some Poison Ivy/Harley books and expresses interest in the role, and all of a sudden it’s a thing. I could generate a pretty solid list of projects Megan Fox might have an interest it. Not that I have any particular issue with her or her in that role. Though I prefer when she’s not playing the ‘hottest girl in the room’ character type. She HAS played other variations. Such as ‘hottest girl in the room who is actually somewhat nerdy’. hahaha. link!

:::

– I still have no idea if Aquaman will be good or not. But he DOES look good. That’s at least something, right? link!

– Build your own mecha gloves. And do me a favor, build me some too. link!

– Ouch. Smearing Tilda Swindon can backfire. link!

– The word on the street is that Han Solo starts filming in Spring. Rogue One pulled off retconning in the best possible way, not hashing into the story that pre-existed, but supplementing it. Much more difficult challenge ahead for this film. link!

– I have very little confidence in this film. But the reason i bring it up is that it makes me think that the costume designers must rejoice when modern John Cusack is cast, because they can take the time allocated to him and spend it on Angry Birds or whatever. Because same. Every time. And he dresses this way in realLife by the way. I saw him at Rose City Comic Con, same deal. link!

– Jessica Camacho has been cast as Gypsy on Arrow. Now look, I haven’t seen her work, and I haven’t come across Gypsy as a character since flipping through the DC Who’s Who books in the 80s… this character needs an update badly (even Marvel has bypassed a lot of that cultural trope, at least on film, with Scarlet Witch) but it’s again good to see actors of different ethnicities in these roles. link!

– The teaser was already great, and of course I was presold, but this full trailer for John Wick 2 is GREAT. link!

– Plus, misc. items thus:

Image
Corey Smith’s DD Redesign looks AWESOME, but I’ve always felt it is key that DD’s look not broadcast he is blind. There are plenty of characters where this is a thing, and I love it, but his secret identity and a good chunk of his character concept is based on this being hidden.

Best VENN Diagram ever

I noted this in our Robot-Kraken Instagram (Red Tentacle) but this was one of my favorite parts from the recent Darth Vader comics. He THREW the lightsaber and broke a Y-Wing, like it’s no thing.

Anyway, the force is with you and you are one with the force, if you’re lucky…

An Enjoyer of Life and other things – 8 June 2016

Image
All hail weird-ass Jeff Goldblum being himself on film again!
“He’s a hedonist, a pleasure-seeker,” Goldblum explained to Empire, while promoting his upcoming film Independence Day: Resurgence, “an enjoyer of life and tastes and smells. I thought, ‘ can do that, I’ll bet!’ I’m working on my part every day.”

Look, I get that The Shallows is just Jaws meets standard girl in peril slasher film meets Blake Lively porno… but for whatever combination of those things, I’m into it.

Check out these concepts for Black Panther. I love the rightmost one, that looks most like a big cat’s nose and snout. I’d have been down with that.

Toby Kebbell says the original cut of FF was great, and dark, and etc. I’m not even in the majority on this film: I didn’t hate it. But hot damn I’d like to see that cut.

Mackenzie Davis joined Blade Runner 2… and in fact, hmmm, she looks a lot like Robin Wright… HMMMMM…. younger and older models of the same replicant?
http://geektyrant.com/news/the-martians … e-runner-2

PS I just saw the Nice Guys… I’ve never been more comfortable with Ryan Gosling in BR2… not even the same style of film in any way, but a great reminder of how good he is.
