Not to mention he's probably being offered plenty of roles and stupid amounts of money with his current popularity rise.

This will be a dumb summer movie but its a tentpole film and that's what they're all about. For me its just about cleansing my mind of the last abomination they called Godzilla!

Have you seen the Total Recall remake? He tried that but it was basically a PG Walter White. He does appear to be a "good guy" in the Godzilla trailer so who knows, maybe it'll work. Just when I hear his serious voice I think WW, when I see him with hair I think Malcolm's dad :|.

Dunno if it's being posted yet but bit of news about the next Terminator film.

- It's called Genesis and is first part of a trilogy.
- Directed by guy who did Thor Dark World and Arnie will have a role in it.
- Emilia Clarke, the blonde chick Daenarys(?) from Game of Thrones, is playing Sarah Connor.
- Some bloke from Zero Dark Thirty is playing John.

Now the bad news:

- Unfortunately, Kyle Reese will be played by Jai Courtney, the guy who was Bruce Willis son in Die Hard 5.

I thought that was all bad news. I don't see any good coming of it.

I've recently read that Hollywood has greenlighted a new movie, Winter's Knight. An origin story that basically has Father Christmas slashing and beating the s**t out of Vikings for 90 minutes.

I do believe that's a nail in the coffin for silly gritty fantasy reboots.

if you want bad news, the other rumour is that it will cross over the original films, with the possibility of seeing things that happened in the first film from different perspectives etc
problem with films involving time travel, the longer the series goes on, the more it crosses over itself and the more confusing the whole thing becomes

that Winters Knight film supposedly had a major bidding war over the concept

Winters Knight, I've heard that somewhere else.

What's that quote from? I can't remember.

Winters Knight sounds like an April Fool's joke.

I know Hollywood is desperate but.....

It doesn't sound any dafter than "Abe Lincoln: Vampire Hunter", and that got made!

Original is just a spot fest, Hollywood can remove half the fighting and it will improve on the original.

My bad, I accidentally use wrestling lingo outside wrestling sometimes and forget others won't know what the hell I'm on about :lol:.

Hopefully I'll do a decent job explaining, basically it's action at the expense of everything else, action with nothing to break it up which leads to boredom and the action losing any importance or meaning.

I know some like that kind of thing but it just flies over my head, I honestly can't remember a single thing from The Raid, beyond it takes place in a tower block and thinking that every fight scene lasts too long.
