  1. Domestically that should be the case, yes - 4-min 'exclusive content' with every screening. In the UK this is exclusive to Odeon cinemas.
  2. was told the 4-min footage playing with Annabelle 'brought the house down' at press screenings - getting even bigger reactions than the Annabelle film itself. It's not the same as the SDCC footage.
  3. 4 minutes of 'exclusive content' attached to Annabelle - https://trailer-track.com/2017/08/03/in-the-pipeline-4-minutes-of-exclusive-it-footage-on-the-way-to-cinemas-next-week/
  4. the 2 min trailer IS with Annabelle after all, and should be the one coming tomorrow. Pretty nicely done by Paramount in hindsight. Trailer 1 (Dunkirk) with no footage, only dialogue, Trailer 2 (Dark Tower/Detroit) adds footage on top of that, Trailer 3 (Annabelle) is the full 2 min shebang
  5. Valerian (2017)

    Enjoyed this so so much. It's funny, the source material predates everything but Besson here almost shamelessly cribs from Star Trek and Wars, main title cards from Transformers, his own The Fifth Element, with a whole dollop of Fantastic Beasts/Avatar-esque worldbuilding where it's not Valerian & Laureline you care most about - it's the WORLD. It's the Pearls, the different species introduced, the city itself, the conceits (the evolution of VR/AR that Besson plays with in an early set piece is genius) and so on. The fact that you get invested into all this within two hours just shows Besson's skill. This is no Fifth Element (but in similar wheelhouse) - but honestly feels like Luc's love letter to modern sci-fi, flaws and all (yes, I see why some people had a problem with some parts of it). Derivative? Yes. Problem? Not at all when the experience (biggest screen, 3D, Atmos, those visuals) and the whole journey works and draws you in. If I had to pick weak links - the humans: they sure set up Valerian and Laureline to be this brash too-cool-for-school-jock who doesn't really look like one (DeHaan nailed that demeanor tbh) and I'm-so-sick-of-his-crap sidekick (Delevingne is surprisingly good) but that doesn't really get paid off the way it could have - just so much potential. But the non-humans? Amazingly done. Even Rihanna. You can tell how much care both script and visuals wise was put into it. And speaking of - sure the story's a bit weak, but so was The Fifth Element's by the same coin. Can't wait for the moment this gets rediscovered on home media. I wonder how differently it'll play there because it really was something on the big screen. I can even forgive Besson for the human casting, but his utter stubbornness when it came to WB/Nolan/Dunkirk just did not help matters, it became the narrative and coupled with the trailers which Besson tried to keep as teaser-y as possible - there's a reason it was ONLY visuals/atmosphere (there isn't really a twist or anything but going in not knowing the *actual* set-up premise of the story is great) - it screwed things up. Real shame. Let's hope this film gets its due. 8/10

  7. Finally (just came out today here) seeing this tonight.
  8. Zimmer & Wallfisch to contribute additional music. They're 'helping out' Johannsson according to Villeneuve. https://www.pressreader.com/france/studio-ciné-live/20170628/282007557396521
  9. No more 3D, at least in IMAX in the U.S/Canada http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/imax-screen-more-hollywood-tentpoles-2d-citing-clear-preference-1024590?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter
  10. Spot on. Sure, fans want everything NOW, but does the general public need 3+ minutes this far out? If Disney handled this like WB (i.e. - everything needs to be online/public ready), the only thing they'd present at SDCC was Ragnarok and maaaaybe one Panther clip that wouldn't be released online. No Infinity War footage. That's the dilemma you're dealing with when asking studios to 'just put it online'.
  11. Screenplay out on Kindle/iBooks and paperback.
  12. Seeing the trailer in 70mm IMAX this morning was interesting. Aesthetically feels a lot closer to the origin with the grain and analog colour depth BUT more unlike Deakins/Villeneuve's style.
  13. Trailer playing from tonight with Dunkirk at...Drafthouse?
