10000 bc camilla New 10,000 B.C. Details RevealedI think it’s inevitable that the new Roland Emmerich film 10,000 B.C. will have a killer opening weekend so I guess I’ll talk about it a bit more.

At the WonderCon panel they debuted a brand new trailer, which built upon the previous one in terms of impressive visuals. If I had to come up with one word to describe what’s been shown so far it would have to be: Spectacle.

The movie seems to be all about incredible vistas populated with a combination of ancient temples, pyramids, woolly mammoths and a cast of (CGI) thousands. Even though it looks to me like this will be the worst sort of fluff, you never know. Perhaps with the proper attitude adjustment before entering the theater, it could turn out to be good fluff.


Emmerich freely admitted that this movie is a combination of history and fantasy and that it’s not meant to be taken as his take on historical fact. It turns out he based the idea on a book called “Fingerprints of the Gods” which is about the theory that very advanced civilizations have preceded ours, but of which there is no evidence (how convenient, says I).

He was also inspired to make a movie that contained woolly mammoths after seeing a program about them on the Discovery Channel.

Although in the first trailer I did not detect any hint of accents coming from the actors, in this new trailer they did have them. They said that they tried to create an accent that was a combination of English and Arabic for the film.

Interestingly, Roland stated that he is a big fan of what I consider to be the best and most realistic caveman movie out there, Quest for Fire. I found that funny considering the plucked eyebrows and shaved chests that run rampant in this movie.

He also stated that the world of this film could be compared to that of Conan the Barbarian: An ancient fantasy world similar to Cimmeria.

Finally, when asked “What can you tell us about your upcoming movie 2012?” (About the upcoming end of the world according to the Mayan calendar) he replied simply:

“Nothing.”

And of course now we know for sure that the new Dark Knight AND Iron Man trailers will be attached to this movie. But of course that’s not enough to sway anyone to go see it. icon smile New 10,000 B.C. Details Revealed

10,000 B.C. opens on March 7th.

  1. You know I am still not sure on this movie. As I said to my friends after seeing the trailers “I liked this movie better when it was called Apocalypto”

  2. No joke , I’ve heard there’s a giant Chicken in this film.
    I’m talking T-Rex size.

  3. LMAO! :-)

  4. I’m serious.
    The Big Chicken is in the picture.

    ^
    Maybe El Pollo Loco’s doing a promotion???

  5. How do you know, for sure, that the new dark knight trailer is attached to this movie?

  6. Pete, it was reported over at Dark Horizons, admittedly as a rumor so it’s not 100%. But it makes sense becuas they’re both Warner Bros movies and they expect it to have a big opening weekend.

    I can confirm the Iron Man trailer as I got that directly from Jon Favreau.

    Vic

  7. I’ve seen this trailer about a dozen times on TV now and I STILL have no idea what this movie is supposed to be about. Yes, the visuals look stunning, the wonders of CGI, but what is the PLOT? Or has Hollydud forgotten there’s SUPPOSED to be a plot to a movie??

  8. The plot is secondary – by God, we came for giant chickens.

    Seriously, this looks terrible. Is that girl wearing eyebrow pencil? I’d rather go watch The Teenage Caveman and ponder how much it oddly resembles The Village.

  9. I saw a program on Discovery channel once about how fast nature would reclaim our cities without us. And though I cannot show you this program, I can show you this chart: http://www.worldwithoutus.com/did_you_know.html

    Apart from the “let’s take a bunch of cool stuff from knowledge on prehistoric man and stuff it together” factor, I think this movie can be a cool fantasy movie. Not that it couldn’t have happened, though. All the animals in the trailer have existed, although maybe not in the same space as each other.
    For all I know they may have, but there haven’t been found bones or fossils from them in the same places.
    Historical sources suggest that there have been lions in Europe, even in the UK, and even more exotic creatures, but they were hunted to extinction, though there isn’t much physical evidence to back that up. Blame it on hygiene. :p

    As for the “(how convenient, says I)” comment, I am taken aback at how arrogant that seems to me. Nature is a very destructive force, and humans are quite resourceful in building societies and finding ways of making life easier for themselves.

  10. So I take it I am not the only one who has no clue what this movie is supposed to be about?? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?? Bueller??

  11. It is an Eric Von Daniken adaptation or however you spell his name, book called Finger Print of the Gods. The dude who inspired the movie called StarGate…

    What I want to know is… DO they speak English in this movie?

  12. In a world, where Caveman love can not be broken and giant chickens rule the land, comes a hero, a ledgend.
    10.000 BC.
    When ledgend was born………….

    Rated PG.

    I read that was the original trailer intro…(Could happen) I swear I saw a glimpse of the chicken in the trailer.
