 I read in an interview that the movie is basicly 3 parts. One from Matt Damon's characters perspective, one from Adam Driver's characters perspective and the last one from Jodie Comer's characters perspective.

 

I've heard the Jodie Comer's perspective is the best part of the movie. That would be great because the last act is usually the weakest part of a movie.

This film did not look very good to me either, especially in a visual sense, as you pointed out Alex. But critics seem to be digging it, so I am curious.

On the visual front it will most definitely lose to The Green Knight. Scott is getting old.

I thought the point of casting Tom Holland was to approach the series from a Young Drake angle so he could grow into the role.

 

But this film appears to be the story from 4, the game that concludes the character’s arc, but with a major set piece from 3 thrown in.

 

Considering the PS ad at the end, my assumption is this will be a one and done film to push PC sales of the fourth game. 
 

Also doesn’t bode well that a composer is yet to be attached. I heard a snippet of the main theme before Led Zeppelin kicked in.

It also seemed terribly on the nose, but maybe the film is more nuanced the trailers make it seem. And I'm down for some good sword fights.

I guess the composer will be Ludwig Göransson, who scored Venom and 30 Minutes or Less for the director.

 

But whoever gets the job, I just hope they use Greg Edmonson's classic theme from the games.

Henry Jackman did score the last two games, so that’s always a possibility ;)

 

I’m sure the theme will be used in the film as it’s in the trailer for a few seconds at the start. 
 

Nothing beats Edmonson’s trilogy of scores though.

Edmonson crushed the first 3 games! I agree.

 

But I absolutely LOVED what Jackman did with Nate's theme in 4.  Really made it feel grounded (like the game)

 

 

 

As far as the movie trailer, it looks alright.  I'm with @Koray Savas as I thought they would be exploring more origins of the character and more 'original' material.  I'm gonna take a wild guess and say the executives made a point to have those memorable action scenes from the games, in the movie.  But I could be wrong.  Those moments in the game are already so 'cinematic' and you're already immersed in the game itself/storyline, that it will be hard to feel excited for those moments in the movie.  But I'm someone who's 100% all of the games on Crushing Mode lol.

 

Also, very happy to see that they're having Sam in this game.  He was one of the finest additions to the series, imo.  Loved his character.

Is Wahlberg meant to be Sully in Uncharted? Nowhere near grizzled enough!

Although granted I don't know what way the timeline in the movie(s) is meant to work.

Didn't this happen, to Brandon Lee?

 

Yes.  Pretty weird Alec shot the director and the DOP.

Jesus, I just saw the news, that was horrifying. I guess Alec Baldwin will never work on anything again at the movie industry.

You seem to be jumping to some conclusion that this was his fault and I'm not sure at all that that's a safe assumption. Unless I'm misreading the Hollywood Reporter article I saw, couldn't this be the fault of a negligent propmaster and Baldwin is a victim here too, in a way?

That's why he might turn his back to Hollywood.

Now it certainly could also be Baldwin's negligence completely at fault here too, I'm not ruling out that possibility.  I'm just saying that there are lot of details we don't know so I wouldn't assume anything.

A director explained that it's the prop gun guy who is always responsible. He even has to fire one blank before he hands the gun to an actor. Time pressure might be the cause of carelessness.

I find this headline on the New York Times website front page incredibly irresponsible.  It should be something more like "Apparent on-set accident involving Alec Baldwin leaves crew member dead" or whatever.

So what do you think? Will they replace the DOP? Will Baldwin return to the set in a few weeks? Or will they simply terminate the movie because of the horrific accident that people will forever associate with it?

Oh there's no way this movie is being finished.

Yeah, I also think this is the most likely to happen. If they manage to find a way to finish the movie, great, but I wouldn't bet on it.

They finished THE CROW, so, potentially...

Natalie Wood died, in 1981 (admittedly not from a gunshot wound) but BRAINSTORM was finished. Same thing happened, with Vic Morrow.

I guess it depends on how much money people have invested, and how far along the film was.

Whatever happens, Baldwin, probably, won't be involved.

If this was a terrible accident (as early evidence suggests), then I hope that Baldwin is not prosecuted.

Didn't know about the Randall Miller movie but apparently he did try to continue after the tragedy and he even hired a public relations strategist to deal with the negative press ... Jees!

Of course, but that was not an accident that happened on the set due to some negligence. She allegedly fell off a (her?) boat and drowned.

It seems it was loaded with two real bullets

Blanks can kill people if you fire them at a close enough range. No movie set is using real bullets.

This just seems nuts to me and amazing that accidents don't happen more often.  If I were an insurance company insuring a film production, the presence of prop guns would send the premiums way high.

Thats what i heard in early reports over here.


i thought blanks only had the bullet “jacket” and the gunpowder, not any kind of proyectile, it just detonates. I supose the gunpowder explosion can hurt at point blank.

Ah Baldwin... He must fell like a murderer. It's a professionnal suicide.


The word “suicide” implies intent. This appears to be a tragic workplace accident, caused by gross negligence.

 

Terrible, terrible incident. I feel so much for the families of everyone affected and Baldwin himself. I can’t imagine what that would do to a person.

Accident or not, Baldwin might be in legal trouble because he broke protocol which says you can't point a prop gun (that shoots blanks) to a person because, like Koray mentioned, it is still very dangerous.

This one did. It wasn't a blank but a real bullet that killed Halyna Hutchins.

Apparently, much of the crew walked out the morning before the incident due to negligence and poor working conditions. So don’t think this was an isolated incident, and I don’t think we should really be laying blame on Baldwin prematurely, as you say.

 

Apparently many sets now get away without using prop guns. Still baffled how this could happen in this day and age.

 

Just a terrible and utterly pointless loss of life. :(
