Wow that was literally one of the weirdest trailers I've ever seen. Looks interesting. Would be cool if those 2 actors are the only ones in the entire movie (But I saw a third actor's name at the end)

Apparently it's not actually a true reboot--it'll be a sequel that follows the continuity of the previous three but will largely (completely?) dispense with the main live action cast...if I'm understanding this right.

It's set in 1983, Steef.

But I know what mean.

The look is wrong for the 80's. It's late 60's, early 70's psychedelia...

No trailer yet? I hope it's going to be one of those good Tim Burton movies (Ed Wood, Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, Sweeney Todd). The topic seems to be right up his alley. I'm looking forward to this (even though that thingy he did for Disney was horrible).

Yeah, Burton is pretty unpredictable. But even if the movie's no good, you can almost always expect some impressive art direction and a great main title cue by Danny Elfman.

Jesus Christ. Aside from some extra weight, Johnny Depp looks no different in those photos than he did in the early 90s. I thought he got old and fat a couple years ago? Maybe it was for a role.

I hope I age that well.

We need a movie version of The Fresh Prince of Bell Air.

Indubitably!

(I have always wanted to use that word so I just went for it as I saw an opening)

Don't worry, I'm sure he'll be fine in Blade Runner sequel.

Since Michael Fassbender is Scott's latest numero uno, I can't say that I'm worrying.

Fassbender may play Deckard (or Deckard's son), but you also need Replicants for the sequel. And what better actor to play a Replicant than Will Smith? He is cool, you now. And nowadays, you need your film to have a "coolness factor" in order for it to be a success. Will Smith has the "coolness factor". He IS the "coolness factor". Trust me, he'll be in Blade Runner sequel. Producers will want him to be in the film. Or at least, someone like him. Chris Rock, maybe. Yeah, now that I think about it, Chris Rock would a better choice.

No, he won't. And no, he doesn't have that replicant cool. He's simply not Ridley's type of actor.

You do realise that the Ridley you admired and loved no longer exists? He has changed. Smith will be in the sequel, I tell you! I can see it coming from miles ahead:

Interior - Bryant's Office

Bryant and Deckard are sit, watching at a screen. Gaff is in the background, sit in the dark. We can see a glow in his eyes.

Harry Bryant: "I know you don't want to be part of all this, Deckard, but we've got a situation here, and only you can help us".

He presses a button, and a picture of Smith's character appears on screen.

Bryant: "This is Roy Batty".

Deckard: "It can't be. Roy Batty is dead. I've seen it with my own eyes".

Gaff: "But, then again, who didn't?"

Bryant: " No, Deckard. The Roy Batty you saw dying was just a clone of the original. A mere replication of a replicant. This is the original Roy Batty. And he is far more powerful than the Batty you knew".

Deckard: "I don't want to be part of this. I'm retired, Bryant. I'm tired of all this shit"

Gaff: "But then again, who isn't?"

Bryant: "I knew you'd say that. Since Rachel died in this bus accident, you've changed. Are these your final words?"

Deckard: "Yes, old twat'."

Deckard gets up, and prepare to leave Bryant's office. Bryant picks up his phone and dials a number.

Bryant: "Hello. Could I speak to Deckard Junior, please?"

Voice on the phone: "That's him".

Deckard turns around, and look at Bryant with anger

Deckard: "You cannot do this to me! That's my son!"

Bryant: "Mr Junior, I have an assignement for you."

Deckard: "THAT'S MY SON!"

Gaff: "But then again, who isn't?"

Deckard: "OK, I'll do your job, Bryant"

Bryant: "I'm sorry, I thought you were retired... Hehehe..."

Gaff: "But then again, who isn't?"

The title appears on screen:

BLADE RUNNER 2: FLY OVER A REPLICANT'S NEST

Obvioulsy, Deckard Junior will be played by Fassbender, and it will be revealed during the film that he is half-human, half-replicant, the missing link that will bring peace between the two "species". Smith character will end up being a good guy and help Deckard Junior in his quest.

What will be the running time? 24 minutes? 240 minutes? 2.4 hours?

I predict a series of twelve 2-hour films.

On other news...

Die Hard 5 has a new lead

die-hard-5-has-a-new-lead-80781-470-75.jpg

Die Hard 5 has announced some big news today, with Spartacus: Blood And Sand actor Jai Courtney confirmed as the new star of the upcoming action sequel.

Don’t worry though, Bruce Willis hasn’t been condemned to the scrapheap just yet – he’ll be back on board as maverick cop John McClane, while Courtney will play his son, Jack.

Courtney reportedly beat out The Hunger Games’ Liam Hemsworth to play a character described by the official press release as, “an apple that has not fallen far from the tree.”

Indeed, the release goes on to claim that, “Jack may even be more of a hardass than his father.” You can see the pair together above, in an official image from the two actors’ screen-test together.

What in the name of fuck? They gave McClane a son? And he's supposed to be more badass than McClane? What the fuck, man?!

And I just learned the title of the film: A Good Day To Die Hard. Seriously? Have we hit rock bottom in terms of lousy film titles?

Not justifying it at all. Just pointing out that they aren't inventing a son he never had 4 films later.

Obviously I wish the series had stopped after 3 films like any sane person

Christopher Nolan's longtime cinematographer Wally Pfister is getting set to direct his feature film debut, from a screenplay by new writer Jack Paglen. The movie is untitled for the time being (the plot is under wraps too), but it's being fast-tracked for an early fall shooting date. Alcon Entertainment is producing the film, where it has a distribution deal with Warner Brothers.

http://www.deadline.com/2012/03/alcon-sets-helming-debut-for-dark-knight-rises-cinematographer-wally-pfister/

Will he follow his close friend and hire Zimmer to score? Or will Pfister go for a more orchestral composer?
