Babylon A.D. Poster, Images, Clips And Trailer Round-Up

Published 6 years ago by

babylon ad poster2 Babylon A.D. Poster, Images, Clips And Trailer Round UpOk, this is really weird. Over the last few months I’ve seen comments from readers asking “Hey, why aren’t you covering the new Vin Diesel movie ‘Babylon A.D’?” In my head my reaction has been, well, we haven’t covered it in depth, but of course we’ve covered it.

Except it seems we haven’t.

For some reason, amidst the Dark Knights, Iron Mans, Watchmen and Indy 4s, this one has slipped through the cracks. Well here’s our “catch up post” for Babylon A.D.

In the movie, Vin Diesel returns to the big screen as a mercenary transporting a woman who unknown to him carries a genetically modified organism. Looks to me like the sort of role that Diesel was born to play. The film also stars Michelle Yeoh.

Not too much is known about this French-made film, but the online movie community is pulling for it and hoping that it will turn out to be a great film despite the fact it hasn’t had a ton of promotion. To me there’s a tiny bit of a Children of Men vibe to it, although I realize it’s a completely different sort of film.

Since we’ve been lagging in coverage, I’m going to dogpile a bunch of posters, the trailer and clips right here for ya.

  1. looks interesting I think. I hope its good and I’ll definately check it out because Vin Diesel is in it.

  2. I think it looks very promising. I hope to catch it on the big screen.

  3. Well I’m sure wondering whether something stopped the bullet from hitting the woman or was that a hunter seeker designed to have that effect?? Looked like a hunter seeker.

  4. Well, although this movie seems like just another Vin Diesel action flick, that’s not really a bad thing.

    Oh and Vic, Diesel already played the role he was born to play– in Pitch Black ;D

    “Looks to me like the sort of role that Diesel was born to play.”

    I didn’t say it was THE role he was born to play. :-P

    Vic

  6. There are no pictures and the video clips don’t load.

  7. @Joshua

    It’s a problem on your end, bro. I just checked in both Firefox and Internet Explorer and everything is fine in both for me.

    Vic

  8. You’re right, it was a Firefox extension.

  9. So to add something constructive: I’ve been waiting for this movie since the first trailer came out. Looks like one of the few things that could be really good this year, which is sorely needed considering The Summer of Disaster.

    And it’s got Vin Diezel, and there is never enough Sci-Fi, so it would be pretty hard for this movie to disappoint.

  10. The Summer of Disaster? Really? I was just thinking about how good this summer has been. The Dark Knight, Iron Man, Hellboy 2, Wall-E, heck even Kung Fu Panda and Prince Caspian were good.

    But hopefully, this one will pick up the quality after a few weeks of bad films.

  11. Charlotte Rampling! This has got to be the first SF film she’s done since Zardoz. Gerard Depardieu as well, and Mark Strong, the burnt-up guy from Sunshine: unusual cast anyway.

  12. mcmojo,

    I’d throw in the Hulk, Pineapple, Wanted and definately Tropic Thunder into that as well.

    This summer has been great for flicks, although not all amazing, its had tons of HUGE films.

    I’ve been hugely disappointed with movies this summer, mainly because there was so much potential for truly great movies that was just shamefully wasted.

    Let me address the movies you mention and why they failed to live up to their potential:

    Iron Man: Ok, it’s an entertaining, good action movie. But ultimately it’s forgettable. It did not live up to its hype as a must see amazing movie. It was not a once in a lifetime cinematic experience. It was just another good action movie. Even though I enjoyed it, I forgot about it pretty much immediately after I saw it. That says it all.

    Hellboy 2: Oh my god, don’t get me started on Hellboy 2. Guillermo, please PLEASE find yourself a good scriptwriter. DON’T do it yourself. Christ, how bad was that story? How much of Guillermo’s visual potential was wasted? I was so disappointed. A huge let down, especially considering that Hellboy was SO much fun.

    Wall-E: Yeah, this was a good movie. Cute, fun, beautiful, entertaining. I loved it. But actually, I was kind of disappointed to find that it didn’t really leave that much of an impression on me. It was really good, but by now I have all but forgotten about it. I believe it’s because the ending was kind of “oh, ok”.

    Kung Fu Panda: Haven’t seen it, but I’ve heard good things about it.

    Prince Caspian: Okay. Nothing special. Forgettable. The first one was better.

    These movies were “OK” but really not one of the most amazing cinematic experiences I’ve had, which is what I want from a summer blockbuster movie, or actually ANY movie. I want to leave the cinema breathless, amazed at the experience I just had. I want The Dark Knight, I want The Matrix, I want Gladiator, I want Spider-Man, I want Terminator II. Come on, give me a solid story that engages me, give me characters I care about, give me a real emotional impact, and wrap it all up in a delicious chocolatey action candy crust. DON’T just give me all action with no substance and then try to sell it as the next best thing since unsliced bread. It’s boring. It’s forgettable. It’s a shame and a waste of talent.

    The Hulk: Meh. Somewhat entertaining, but in the end it was just too much action and not enough story. The end fight just made me feel like I was watching a video game. It did not engage me in any way or leave me feeling like anything could actually be lost. They should have gone with Ed Norton’s version.

    Pineapple Express: One of the gems this summer. I laughed my ass off and I loved it. BUT it falls short on the ending action sequence which just ended up kind of cheesy and didn’t fit with the rest of the movie, spoiling the immersion. It was fun, and the entire middle part is worth watching MANY times, but they missed on the ending. Still a cut above most of the stuff that came out this summer, which says a lot about the movies that came out this summer.

    Wanted: Christ, please no. Jesus, that must have been the biggest disappointment of all summer. SO MUCH POTENTIAL, SUCH BAD DELIVERY! They should have titled it “Wasted” instead. Man, this is the perfect example of FANTASTIC visuals, BADASS action, all of it let down by a fragmented, pointless, nonsensical story. I was so disappointed. I really wanted to want Wanted. It could have been so good. It could have been a new Matrix. Biggest let down this summer, next to Hellboy II.

    I want movies that I’m going to talk to my friends about for WEEKS, raving about how amazing they were. Give me a movie that I’m going to remember a year later and go “wow that was an incredible movie experience”. Something with an impact. Something with substance AND style.

    What does that leave us with this year? The Dark Knight, which was just pure movie transcendence and almost made up for the rest of the summer. Dr. Horrible, which was fantastic fun and needs a sequel. The Fall which was just gorgeous and actually remembers what storytelling is all about. In Bruges which was just overall badass great in every possible way, even without being a “visual chocolate” movie. One of these is a summer blockbuster. ONE amazing blockbuster the whole summer? One? Seriously? After all the hype these movies got? Color me unconvinced.

    Hollywood, get your act together and learn how to tell stories again. Please restore my faith in the movie industry. And do it by actually making great movies, not by telling me how great your movies are when they really aren’t. Please.

  14. Gotta disagree on Hellboy2 and Iron Man,,, @long post guy. ;-)

    Babylon AD,,, this looks real good, too me it looks like a prequel to Pitch Black and Cronicles.
    Im deffinilty seeing this friday or when it comes out on that friday. 8-)

  15. No offense Joshua, but you’re off your rocker. Iron Man was THE best movie of the summer and I can’t wait for the DVD to come out. I would even dare to say that IM was one of the greatest superhero movies EVER made. (Superman, Batman Begins and X-Men 2 being the others.) I think you set your expectations WAY to high, dude. The movies you mentioned are classics and NOT standard summer movie fare! IMO, this summer we had 2 films that will go down as classics, IM and TDK.

  16. Joshua, evidently you just have trouble remembering anything. :)

    You have a right to your opinion, but I think that the majority of intelligent moviegoers have been very pleased with this Summer’s crop of films.

  17. hehe, long post man.

    If these are all forgettable, what movies do you remember? ;)

  18. the previews for Babylon AD made me expect something a lot more original… it totally felt like a cross between Minority Report and the Fifth Element
