  1. I've never caught a Blumhouse film (was Get Out from Blumhouse? If so, that's the only one), but I am absolutely 100% sold on this... when I can catch it at home. Ace trailer.
  2. Eh, the trailer was alright. Even in normal times, doesn't scream to me "holiday breakout hit". As someone who had 0 familiarity with Blade Runner prior to the marketing for 2049, and has 0 familiarity with Dune, but has been a huge fan of Denis Villeneuve since I watched "Prisoners" in 2013, this trailer was far less appealing than any of the trailers for BR2049. This just doesn't grab me. I don't know if it's the sprawling cast, dreary visuals (especially compared to 2049, which was vibrant despite being a futuristic dystopia) or the high-concept nature of the source material, or a mix of it all, but I'm honestly a little disappointed.
  3. 2 hours, 43 minutes is the run time. I think teaser trailers have more creative hooks these days than primary trailers. For example, WW84's teaser knocked the 80s aesthetic out of the park.
  4. I loved that trailer. Much better than the first trailer, which felt too much like it was spelling out the entire plot of the film in chronological order. The shot selection, cinematography, color palate, action choreography, retro costumes, and Craig putting much more oomph into his line readings than in SPECTRE.
  5. As someone who was adamant over several years that this was doomed for a streaming release, I would like to congratulate the true fans of this project for getting the opportunity to see this on the big screen.
  6. Fuck you, 2020. And fuck cancer. This is the biggest heartbreaking sudden death in probably the history of Hollywood. Or at least modern history. On a cultural level this is much sadder than Heath Ledger, Anton Yelchin, or Paul Walker. I think this even trounces Phillip Seymour Hoffman. Boseman filming his Marvel work while undergoing treatment for Stage 3 cancer (on top of his other incredible work) makes Boseman one of the ultimate forever Hollywood legends. Rest In Peace, forever. The show must go on, and will go on. After several years of mourning. I can’t imagine Boseman would have wanted this legacy of his to end with him. T’challa will not be recast though. Marvel should continue with the excellent cast and characters already assembled. Front and center should be Lupita Nyong’o and/or Winston Duke. The best way to honor the King is to continue the story of his country.
  7. Finally, a look at the mythical Palm Springs Desert shoot. I can understand why a chunk of critics would go rotten because the film lacks the emotional punch and character driven nature of his previous blockbusters. To me though, that's not the point of the film, so it won't bother me.
  8. Disney pushing ahead with New Mutants right now is a hilarious fate befitting of this project's very troubled distribution history.
  9. I just want to provide an update to this. Texas is about to be hit by a relatively minor storm (but a big flooding threat), and there's another storm that's going to die out in the Caribbean in a couple days. However, there's a system expected to form in the mid-Atlantic over the next couple days, name would be Isaias, and early indications are it's going to be a doozy. Based on the data available right now, there's a strong possibility (dare I say probability) of a strong Hurricane making a SE-to-NW approach toward the (generally speaking) SE USA from the Caribbean in roughly 10 days. Still way too early for conclusive predictions, but it's definitely something to keep an eye on.
  10. Smallpox has been eradicated. EDIT: Going more into the relevant part of that article, emphasis mine: Essentially, don't compare a vaccine for a virus that's been wiped off the earth for 40 years to a vaccine still in development for a virus we've known about for half a year.
  11. I have to imagine at this point everyone involved with the film wants just this game of musical chairs to be over with, more than anything else.
  12. The fact there's debate about which streaming platform this would go to if/when it skips theaters is poetic, considering all this film has been through. FOX distributing? Nah, Disney. 2018 release? Nah, 2020. Straight to D+? Nah, HBO Max. Contractual loopholes? Sure, why not.
