Where the hell did this come from? Did Robert Rodriguez make them do this. He's got his crew in here.

He's right. You can't win with sequels. Man HW2 sucked big time. But he is good with originals. Gotta love that ending in Devils Rejects with L.S. Freebird song in the background.
Yeah it's a shame the main reason for Cars 2 cause of selling merchandise. Right there it brings down the Pixar name. Ain't that the main reason for Star Wars 2nd Trilogy and Clone Wars to sell the damn toys. Producer Rick McCallum said himself in various interviews.

She was fantastic in True Grit. She was nominated for Best Actress not Suppt Actress at the BAFTA awards (English Oscars). I'm glad for the twist or it would have been another 50 Dates meets Momento. She will be the next Streep when she gets older. You can tell she has the range and really doesn't have that much competition these days regardless of her age.
Wow, I remember this way back to my childhoods days. One of my all time favorite children's book. Knowing Saldanha is behind this which I love those Ice Age movies this should be a big hit. And something different by the way.
Does anyone remember Return to OZ, produced by Lucas and Directed by Sound and Editing Master Walter Murch. Based on one of the Baum books this bombed. Even tho its a prequel audiences will compare it to the original which is suicide. Best bet is Wicked as that already has a fan based and would be more accepted as seen by many on Broadway. Downey smelled a stinker and left. LOL, and Raimi and cast are all wrong. Also glad Burton is near this this. He already done damage to my child with Apes, Chocolate Factory and Alice 3D. All vision and no substance. So there...lol
PS grew up with westerns and I want this to work. Tim would be great!
Does anyone remember Legend of the Lone Ranger. We were invited to the preview and at the end we were ask to fill out cards to see if we wanted to see a sequel to this. Multi questions 1-10 then on the bottom write out an opinion. Me and my friends all said the same thing: good luck if anyone sees this in the first place. One time actor Klinton Spilsbury quit acting after this. This also had Christopher Lloyd as a serious Villain. "Kiiiiiirk, give me Genesis!"

@narrator Great Points! Quick questions: Rumour also had it that Jackson didn't want just a 'cameo' but more scenes hence another reason for Aventures plug? Downey brought in Justin, you think Downey brought in Shane? And yes last act sucked. All that built up for Rourke and was completely wasted at the end. Looking at Sin City with Commentary with Rodriguez and Miller and can't believe the IM2 studio would let such an actor of his caliber go to waste.

Forgot to mentioned Samson in Al Star Superman. Coincidence the character is in the new Sups. ot a big part but he's in it.

I met Lawrence twice and is geniune about the sci-fi genre and not a cash in. (I was an extra in the Bklyn Bridge scenes in I Am Legend). Unlike Akiva Goldman who seems to screw up sci-fi when he gets a chance (see Batman and Lost in Space) Even tho when they where both at Apple Store in NYC to promote I Am Legend Goldman admitted Batman got away from him he was still more interested in promoting Legend being at B.O. hit instead of writing filmmaking 101. Lawrence on the other hand talk about influences one being Planet of the Apes Original '69 and how Social Satire and Politics fits Sci-fi well. At least with this is does have a different angle as being original in concept. To some it might be a stretch, others might look at it as attempting something instead of remake, reboot or a sequel nobody was asking for. P I AM Legend was an update on a short story, ot a remake as some might beg to differ...jeez just saying....

@sean ...Sonnefeld started with Addams Family, MIB, Get Shorty, Wild Wild West (suck fest), His last 2 were Big Trouble (?) and RV with Robin Williams. YEP killed his movie career and went to TV. He start as Cinematographer including Big, When Harry Met Sally and Misery. Yep he needs this one.lol...but I do want this to work big time...

Besides MIB and Addams Family Barry can use this. Glad he's taking his time to fix the thrid act and not rush MIB2 (studio fault) cause you can see the rush job. 2 barely clocked in at 90 minutes and God it Sucked! At least Rosario was in it, lol. Time travel plot and Josh playing a young Tommy Lee? You can't go wrong. Rewrite man Rewrite!
Damn this is perfect! True story: William Goldman (Oscar Screenwriter winner Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid, All Presidents Men) in his book Adventures of the Screen Trade mentions Warren Beatty walking around his swimming pool in Superman outfit. Clint was also offered. Jack turn down Sups father in Chris Reeve Sups, realized mistake and took on Batman Joker yrs later. A great what if story.
@dan1 you did say lower case, lol. Once I get thing going I hope to add more friends along with @cupid. Hiya Cupid!
This thing is still around? Jeez, shame they never had the budget, how can they afford Rosenbaum. Well he deserves it, he was the best thing about the show. When he left the show was over. And nothing against the other actors.

PS on Today show this morning how Hollywood is going after Fairy Tales now...thanks alot Alice 3D....
Furankisan wrote a comment about the news item Akira Wants James Franco for Kaneda
To all below, to many names to mention,LOL. Let's not forget the Hughes did 'To Hell' with Johnny Depp, very smart movie on Jack the Ripper. Studio didn't knowwhat to do with final product and killed it themselves. Story is on 2 DVD set. And you figure they're in the business of making movies? Anyways if studio lets them be they'll do a good job on this. PS the movie was violent due to nature of character but not gross like a horror movie, another reason why studion didn't know how to sell it.

@supes1 Bay does give you alot of bang for the buck tho, but I wont miss he's editing thts for sure. I mean no scene plays longer than 10 seconds in TF1-TF2. watch and count on either movie to you non-editors out there..
Furankisan wrote a comment about the news item Michael Bay Calls Transformers 3 'Epic'
@ supes who's got the bigger ego? King Kong or Godzilla? Really! Kong (king of the world, 7th wonder of the world) or Bay (crash,smash , blowup) but remember: Bay answers to Speilberg and Cameron answers to Fox. Yeah it's a tie...
