Eternals | Marvel Studios | Nov 5 2021 | Magnum Opus from 2X ACADEMY AWARD WINNER Chloe Zhao

Recommended Posts

Those who want to know more about this new, mostly unknown director, here's a short interview with her (don't worry about the title, it's in English):

 

 

Many are saying The Rider is locked in for a Best Director nomination at this year's oscars, so expect to learn a lot about her in the coming months/year

Among others.

 

Do you stalk these forums looking for things to contradict?

Now that we're long past June 30, a lot more contenders have pushed Chloe Zhao farther from a nomination.

Never bet against Marvel but this looks completely uninteresting, like a cross between Percy Jackson and X Men and without wacky characters that made GOTG stand out.  

 

On the bright side, they hired a woman to direct a movie that isn't explicitly led by a female and she's Asian although characters aren't specified as such. It's time to give women and minorities to direct variety of movies, not just have them wait for gender/gender or race/race match up. 

I could be totally wrong about this, but I agree. I just don't get the appeal.

 

Look with Guardians, even I got the appeal of that. I read DnA's comic run, and I thought those were great building blocks for what became the Guardians of the Galaxy film franchise. With Guardians, it was a space opera. So it was like Marvel could do their own Star Wars sort of thing but with fun Marvel characters. I believed in the potential fo Rocket Raccoon and Groot becoming characters the audience could fall in love with. They are like R2D2 and C3PO. They are iconic.

 

Eternals, I just don't see what the angle is and why these characters are so special. Especially, when you for all intents and purposes have X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Silver Surfer to play around with in the future. I know you'll need other properties, but Eternals sounds so uninspiring. It just seems like another version of Inhuman. Inhumans I think had more potential as a movie anyway, except then it got sent down to TV and basically gutted and taken out like trash.

They should go full Guardians clone on this.....I'm getting bored just looking at comic pics of these Eternals characters. Even the God-awful Inhumans characters look more interesting than them...

Yeah, Eternals look like an overkill among X Men and F4 cause they don't have stand outs like Groot and Rocket + mixed tapes to distinguish themselves from other Group of People With Different Powers movies. Plus, if this is Disney/Marvel's replacement for GOTG...yikes. :wtf:

I don't know why people are doubting this, remember to never doubt the MCU movies, do so at your own risk. Before you know it you all will be highly anticipating the sequel which will be predicted to make close to 1B WW.

People thought you could never doubt Star Wars and Lucasfilm...and then Solo happened.

Marvel has been releasing 2-3 hits a year for a few years now.. SW has traditionally been more spaced apart and lots of people thought that would be a problem for Solo.

it's less about doubting boxoffice prospect (it's MCU so it should do business) and more about it looking as dull as a dishwasher and indistinguishable from X Men. I have no desire to see this but I expect good boxoffice. Likewise, I'm not gonna follow quite a few MCU franchises after TA4 but I don't expect their sequels to start dropping.

Is this about like Gods in space? Not sure how that's at all similar to X-Men, especially since the Fox X-Men franchise has been relatively grounded even drab at times.

Thor is already Gods in space so Eternals are far from novel concept and yet look generic af. What made GOTG stand out were Groot and Rocket and then Gunn brought in 80s mixed tapes and the rest is history. But this is just zzzz. I looked at the images and read character histories and it's so dull and uninspiring. I'm sure they have some idea what to do with it since it's slated for the movie but even this fan of space movies cannot get excited.
