Everyone’s bagging on Apocalypse in these X-Men: Apocalypse stills from Entertainment Weekly. Whatever — remember how fucking lame all the Days of Future Past promos looked? Rather, let’s keep it positive *and* talk about how fucking gnarly Storm looks.
Do you have any desire to see Aaron Sorkin’s Steve Jobs flick? ‘Cause it’s dropping October 9th.
Until I read this report, I had completely forgotten that Michael Fassbender was involved with an Assassin’s Creed movie. But indeed, he is! And he seems pretty stoked. Wouldn’t it be lovely if this flick was good? I mean — it seems like such an executable concept. But you know. Hollywood. Video games.
Full disclosure: I’m at work, and I sort of hurried through this trailer before putting it up for you. I don’t really have any in-depth comments besides, “eh” and “meh” and “whatever”, which is sort of par for my Bryan Singer course. I’ll give it a rewatch later.
What do you folks think?
I haven’t seen any of Steve McQueen’s movies, though it is not out of lack of want. However, because of that I haven’t really kept tabs on the good sir and his efforts. You know who has? Eduardo Pluto, who was totally up my ass (I moaned a little, whatever) about this trailer dropping. So here it is.
Thoughts? Deep thoughts? Sociopolitical commentary? Ratings on the trailer, based on a one-through nineteen bags of popcorn scale?
Didn’t see this coming.
It’s a bit of a stretch, asking anyone to come out of Prometheus this weekend without an overwhelming sensation of feeling hollow. It’s a rather empty, desolate film in all the ways that matter: setting, visuals, character – even plot. There just isn’t a lot there.
Compounding the problem is that the marketing machine behind the film has inadvertently already given you 90% of it. Walking out of the theatre tonight or tomorrow will feel like you’ve just seen an extended trailer, albeit a two hour one.
Phew. I was frightened. We hadn’t been blasted across the nips with Prometheus images in like, a day. Maybe even two. Here’s some off the digi-presses, courtesy of Advertisement (Entertainment) Weekly.
