@kingbrady It's supposed to be an original story of the character Oz.
@gandoff I completely agree. AS a big supporter of Resident Evil back in the day, I must sya I really don't like the way they are doing the movie franchise. The first one was the best as it was the closest to the actual game.

@skywise @Jose-Paulo-Lao I was thinking more "Resident Evil: Clone Wars"
And let's not get it twisted. YES, I will be seeing it opening weekend. I was a fan of the previous one, a comicbook fanatic, and movie buff (if I say so myself). My previous comment was more geared towards the general public - kids, families, older audience members, teenagers, etc.

And I have to admit.... this Batman film does NOTHING for me when compared to a few weeks before opening of The Dark Knight a few years back. Why....... 1) The Joker's prologue (Bank scenario) was DRAMATICALLY better than Bane's (airplane scenario), 2) Joker was a classic villain and what the audience wanted (including myself) and were promised. Bane, not-so-much 3) the trailers for TDK were much better than TDKR's, 4) no possible love interest in the form of Catwoman to "possibly" jeopardize the story, and probably the greatest factor was 5) it was Heath Ledger's last acting role after his death and the whispers of Oscar nominated performance before the movie even premiered grew great interest among everyone.
Speaking as both a MAJOR fan of The Avengers and TDK, I must say I think that The Avengers records may be pretty safe. Although I feel TDKR is gonna be one of the Summer's biggest blockbusters, I can't see it surpassing The Avengers. The Avengers, a overall family movie owned by Disney has everything going for it to cater for all audiences - especially the family audience. TDKR, unfortuantely, doesn't. Let's just be real. 7 year old kids aren't going to be dressed up as Bane or Batman as they were (and grown adults) as Hulk, Iron Man, etc. Also, the tone of TDKR seems even darker than he previous. Yeah, among the comicbook fans it'll make mucho money but its the general family audience that it'll lose out on, compared to The Avengers.

So, YES, it'll make CRAZY money. Probably break a few records, but nothing as serious as what The Avengers did. The villain isn't great enough to pull in the strong audience that The Joker did (mainly because the general audience have no idea who Bane is, nor understand him when he speaks), the lack of comedic entertainment (Joker disguised as a nurse - LOL), and the darker tone (which I personally like) is gonna restrain many from seeing it opening weekend, or at all.

Just my thoughts...

I have to say, I thought this trailer would be crap but I found it quite interesting.
They NEED to make a Metal gear Solid movie. I've been saying this for years!!!
1) Is it me or did Favreau gain a lot of the weight he surprising lost since Iron Man 2? 2) I thought Pepper Pots was a redhead?
I still can't believe I haven't seen the first one yet...
I'm just waiting for the day that Hollywood unveils a live-action movie entitled "Tic-Tac-Toe" based on the game.
Venom could be a great franchise. He has the possibility of being as big as Wolverine but it MUST be done right.

I think all the actors you guys are naming are too old for the role and/or already connected to a Marvel character in another franchise. (Fassbender, Hiddleston, Hemsworth). I think @supermanvenom got the perfect cast choice with Kellan Lutz. Yeah, he may have Twilight connections, but 1) he is a solid actor, 2) looks almost identical to Eddie Brock, 3) isn't new to action sequences.

I'm looking forward to a Venom spin-off movie from an established appearance in one of the new Spiderman movies upcoming. There's no need to rush it because whether you put it out tomorrow or 10 years later, audiences will flock to it IF DONE CORRECTLY.

@rudy Are you trying to make logical sense about a movie that has animals talking English?

Cute.
It should be Shredder first, then Krang. Do it in a way that at the end of the first movie, it sets up the idea that Shredder was working for Krang the entire time, leading to a sequel.
Was the last one any good? I havent seen it yet.
There should be a some form of public approval on certain movies to be classified as "Classics" that will make them untouchable for remake or reboot in the future. Hollywood has run dry of ideas and are only looking for quick money with least risk.
@messenger I like that idea of Alan getting married. That event alone is a comedic gold mine.
Speaking as one of the movies biggest I just don't think this movie will ever get made or if it does, it will be highly rejected.
@supermanvenom Kellan Lutz!?!? Thats the best casting choice I heard for Venom yet. Awesome idea. He strongly favors Eddie Brock and definitely has the size. And the studios don't necessarily need a big-star to hold this role.

@Mr-White That's how I always envisioned they should have done Spiderman and Venom in Raimi's Spidey franchise. They totally destroyed the character of venom in that movie (along with everything else).
A Venom movie could be a GREAT thing but it MUST be done right. What was done in SM3 was a tragic event in comicbook adapted movies and should never be spoken of from here on forth.

For Sony to do Venom/Spiderman correctly in the movie realm, Eddie Brock should at least be mentioned or make a small cameo in TAS or preferably the next installment. By the third installment, SM should have the symbiote (and not by dumb luck that a meteor lands near him in a park and the symbiote follows him) and fight a major villain that is NOT Venom but one we havent seen on screen yet (Rhino, Vulture, Electro, etc). At the end of this film, he should be forced to part ways with it and the very end it finds a successor... Eddie Brock, setting up for the next movie with Venom as the one and only villain.

The actual Venom movie should be the events that take place AFTER he fights Spiderman and set his character up as a Wolverine franchise - a hero with a bad side.
@ROFLitschristian I agree. It would not have been able to go against The Avengers.

And Prometheus will DEFINITELY make $100 mil. I say it will probably take three weeks reach to meet this milestone. Don't be surprised if Prometheus overtakes Madagascar 3 next weekend...
