Getting sequel vibes frens

Alita is the # 1 movie on the land and Umbrella Academy was just released and is getting lots of real-world positive buzz (akin to what happened to Sandra Bullock's Bird Box). It's no surprise that their success is fueling the books' sales...

I would wait until after the film shows actual legs before getting your hopes high for a sequel...

Should we expect an Akira film now? There’s been talks for years.

If Chris Nolan is the one directing. Yes, please.

Agreed, although my personal fave is still Motorball.

Taika Waititi has been attached to development of Akira for roughly a year now. Supposedly it's going to be his next project after he finishes his Jojo Rabbit film.  10 months ago he was quoted as saying "I haven't started developing it properly yet". And he was saying he loves the Anime immensely, he saw it at 13 the first time and it "changed his life". But also that he's going to bypass the anime and develop the film from the manga.

Imagine ending up being a critic. At least cleaners prevent things like disease. (I understand the deep irony of my statement given my own profession - I regard myself as around the level of a critic).

Indeed. Unfortunately, it kinda got drowned out by the rest that was going on. In some scenes, they should have let the music do most of the work coz it shines.

I'm surprised by Junkie XL's range, I already was on The Dark Tower because I thought of him as the guy who was going for more bombastic but he's pretty adept at real melodious, emotional music with quite a bit of character to it. Seeing the film tomorrow but the track I'd Give You My Heart is pretty gorgeous for example

It really is too quiet.

I've listened to the whole soundtrack a couple times already. It's really nice.

Alita should be being praised for being a strong female character and not be torn down for how her body looks.

Meh, you'll always get a couple of super "woke" (or so they think) nutty feminists out there who will reject any depiction of a strong female character by a male director.

I guess when you are sweeping off the feet of both Alita and Sofia, you are doing something very right in life :
