Thanks again to one of our regular readers (Jim) for reminding me to post up the weekly discussion area!

Talk about whatever you like as long as it’s related to movies, TV or Screen Rant itself. Since the latest post about Journeyman has morphed into a conversation about the upcoming season of Fox’s 24, maybe you guys could move it in here. icon smile Open Discussion   August 13, 2008

  1. DAMM IT,,,!!!!

    NOW !!!!!!

  2. Yeah good one… Jack Bauer…
    When I thought the “Simpsons” had nowhere to go, they did a “24″ spoof or tribute, however you look at it.

  3. why was there no info on the new trailer for the wolverine movie??

    i look to screenrant for most of my movie info and i was surprised when i found out there was a trailer and no word from screenrant about it.

    but whatever…. i thought it looked cool not like the comics much, but a cool ultimate type take on the wolverine story. i’m kinda still waiting to see more on this flick, but i hope deadpool is scared eventualy :) but definately cool scenes in the trailer

  4. I heard there was a new wolverine trailer,
    But to be honest i am Xed out at the moment.
    I really hated X3.

    Hey 790, did you add that or was that inserted into your comment automatically?

  6. Ethics bite. :)

  7. Ya, the Wolvy trailer definately had some cool eye-candy scenes, but it also included the worst take on Marvel source material ever, lol. (cue X3 disappointment…again)

    Deadpool absolutely needs to get his scars and propper full costume which I think he will since they only showed him at the beginning of the trailer and never again in any of the fights. Maybe they’re saving that.

    Also extremely important for me is that if Gambit is included (as stupid as it is, that he’s part of weapon X and Wolvy’s past) that he has his French Cajun southern accent. MUST HAVE this accent. I will not accept another american Colossus incident. I also want to see the things he charges up with his power to have the glowing colourful effect, most notably the cards he throws. I’m hoping that wasn’t in the trailer just because they started post.

    And was that Emma Frost in the trailer doing the diamond form thing? How desperate is Fox Studios trying to throw in every random popular character into this to try and draw every element of the comic crowds. This can easily be X3 all over again, but I think this film will rely purely on the action and be fun anyways.

  8. @almanza There is no officially released trailer for Wolverine yet. There was footage shown at Comic-Con which I talked about in my Fox Panel post.

    I don’t publish bootleg YouTube trailers here on Screen Rant, but you can be sure that as soon as it’s officially released you’ll see it here. :-)

  9. No Vic I didn’t add that, It shows up when I send from the mobile site /// it was on my Prince of Persia comment too…

    I’m looking forward to the Wolverine film.
    X3 really (IMO) could have been better if they did a few things differently. :-)

  10. @ vic
    its cool, i didn’t know you only published official material, although i know you guys like to make sure of rumors/speculation before you publish it :) (which is good)
    but yeah i was looking at the wolverine section and missed that there was any trailer (official or otherwise) but thanks for all the awesome coverage.

    i realy hope wolverine just turns out to be a good film, with an interesting story. i can forgive a lot of things (origin/appearance changes and so forth) as long as it’s a good story and makes since.
    but i really hope they keep characters i have loved since childhood, decently portrayed. Gambit should have his cultural identity intact, it’s part of the character, you make him part of weapon x….fine, but keep him true to the character, that fans have enjoyed for so long. deadpool and even white queen, they have an established persona that should be honored. Tweaked for film, this story, and a mainstream audience, but still intact of what the character should be. Just like when a new writer takes over a book he can change something’s but something’s MUST stay constant.

  11. I agree 790,
    X3 really could have been betterifthet changed a few things .
    Like the SCRIPT and the DIRECTOR!

  12. Check this out. G4 behind-the-scenes footage of watchmen set, including first look at Jackie Earle Haley’s Rorschach character WITHOUT the mask :)

  13. Rob, great cheekbones, hope he was just wearing the shades in between takes!

  14. Gary, I really thought they blew the Red Phoenix,,, that was the biggest mistake in the script. I also had a serious problem when the end battle started, as it was daytime in one frame and the next it was dark,,, that was the biggest mistake in all 3 films (IMO). That just took any “reality” out of the film for me,,, :-)
    ^
    Also Watchmen fans!
    I went to the bookstore today and theres a Watchman graphic novel book thats comic book size and about an inch and a half thick. It covers the entire sage. Its only $19.99.

    Im going to wait and see the film, and let that blow me away. I want to see it fresh !!! 8-)

  15. yo 790, I think they blew everything.

    Rogue’s character – useless
    Colossus? How can anyone possible ruin a character so awesome…I mean, its almost like it was their goal to do the impossible with that one.
    Angel – useless
    Pyro – why is he american? why is he not developed at all
    wolverine – leading the fight on the battlefield? what?
    Phoenix – everything bad
    the final battle – everything bad. It starts with Magneto sending in all the “pawns” to get shot with the guns…THEN he decides to take out the guns? the 5 year old I was sitting beside was confused by that and would of made a better strategist.
    Juggernaut – British?

    I mean, these are difficult concepts, all of these things are LITERALLY laid in the comics to follow from. What kind of people are hired to make these decisions and scripts, I have no idea. Please, let me write the produce the next X-film.

    and I hear Watchmen has a nice hardcover coming out later this year. I think you can pre-order for a discount price on Amazon or something. I’m definately gonna check that out, I read my GF’s paperback before, thats probably the same one as you saw.
