If I had just seen this without knowing that it was a Universal soldier movie I would've had no idea that's what it was.

If you've never read a Jack reacher novel perhaps Tom Cruise works for you but he is absolutely in no way shape or form the correct choice for Jack reacher. He is the marketable choice
@the Joker I definitely hope I'm wrong and your right. This looks amazing.
As much as I would love to see Dredd blow up the box office this weekend, I just think the majority of movie goers are idiots and won't give Dredd a second thought mainly because there isn't enough major star power there to draw their small little pop culture driven minds.

CBS definitely gives this the best chance for survival. They tend to give shows a chance to gestate and build an audience.
Is this seriously going to be a movie?

Two weekends at #1 and it just barely has broken $50 million and it's international box office is barely $20 million (still has some countries to release in). Perhaps Paramount is looking smarter everyday for pulling GI Joe from 2012 to give time to hit harder on marketing in the international market.
Hopefully just another rumor.
My beef with studios would be that when making these remakes and reboots for the most part (there are exceptions) they seemingly put very little effort into at least attempting to make them as good or better than the original.
I've never been one to carry the banner for the Studios, but the remake and reboot craze is mostly attributed to the fact that dip$hit moviegoers go for it and rarely will go for anything original. Studios have to make money and unfortunately that means they have to make movies the idiots will buy tickets for.

This looks so much better than Stallone's version, but with the state of the domestic box office unless they are hitting the international circuit heavy with marketing I just don't see this doing well. American moviegoers only go to the movies if they are extremely familiar with the source material or there is a mega superstar actor in the film.
Saw Legacy and Expendables. I thought both of them were decent, but Legacy was definitely better.
Rotten Tomatoes rating system aggravates the cr@p out of me. I saw Bourne got a 53% so I went and read several of the Top Critics' reviews that were delineated as splats and saw that most of them outside of a few issues with the confusing plot twists thought it was a good action movie and almost all of them praised Renner's performance.

From a financial standpoint even though China would be the most likely fit for the invading force, it would have been completely stupid to put them in the role of villain especially with China becoming more open to American cinema. They are a huge potential market.
As screwed up as Hollywood's thinking is, I'm suprised they didn't have the movie take place overseas with the US invading France or something and call the movie Red, White and Blue Dawn.

From the trailer, it looks like they stayed very close to the original concept minus the Russians add in the North Koreans(?). I didn't mind that the first film was from a reality standpoint completely preposterous, but I was kind of hoping they might put a little effort into the remake to try and tweak the story to make it a little more believable. This doesn't seem to be the case, and the North Korean invasion concept makes it even less believable.
