Review from advanced screenings of next months "IT" release are VERY positive. Stephen King's IT is probably my favorite novel of all time, and while the 1990s mini series was a horrible adaption of the work, it was a fun and creepy attempt of turning a R rated novel into a PG13 tv experience.

Not sure if there are any other IT fans on these boards, but for the first time I might not be too disappointed in a book to movie adaptation.

This looks low budget but the trailer managed to make me laugh courtesy of Arnold. Trailer for KILLING GUNTHER - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2wAXWY6k-g

Takashi Miike's BLADE OF THE IMMORTAL - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQveuj6E0dE
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

This I'm insanely stoked for. I fucking love Miike (Ichi the Killer is one of my favorite movies) and I grew up on Blade of the Immortal. I used to buy the single issue comics when I was like, 12 years old. I couldn't have asked for more with this hah.

I got into this manga pretty recently. Always thought it was just some brainless ultraviolent thing, but it's actually well written, and the art is great. Can't say I like how these Miike cosplay movies end up looking so I usually avoid them, but I'll have to check this one out.

Well well, look who's back...

http://variety.com/2017/film/news/j-j-abrams-star-wars-episode-ix-director-colin-trevorrow-1202548094/

Seems a good, if obvious, trade since Trevorrow's Lucas/Spielberg impression is really just a worse version of Abrams' and it actually gives this trilogy a symmetry like the original (hopefully not TOO much like the original though, amirite!? :troll:). Anyway, as lazy of an out as this seems I can't really think of a better choice. Rian Johnson could change my mind of course, or fuck up Luke Skywalker. Other than that I guess it would have been nice to finally fulfill the prophecy of Spielberg directing one of these things, but I think he pinky swore with George to never do that, or it's some ego thing of his own ("I'm bigger than George's one movie"). Plus, he hasn't been in his prime for a while now anyway. It'd be like getting Michael Jordan on your team but from the Wizards. Probably better to take the current All-Star than watch Spielberg make his own version of the prequel debacle instead of adding the fun or pathos you might expect.

I wish it was Brad Bird, but Abrams is fine.

Hey, The Leftovers is finished, so Damon Lindelof is free, right? How about a "dream team" tag team of Lindelof/Abrams?  :ganishka:

Ah ha, it was Bird who said Trevorrow reminded him of himself (couldn't recall)! That would have been funny.

Finally a Star Wars movie for Nightcrawler!  :troll: It would also help that Lindelof would "logically" remove all pre-established connections to Star Wars and replace them with generic offshoots based on them, "What if we made the Wookies little and the Ewoks huge and called them Eikoows amd Kowes!? BRILLIANT!!"

Or better yet, speaking of would-be Star Wars directors, how about George Lucas' original choice for the third part of the trilogy:

I enjoyed Ex Machina, so I'm going to put the writer + director's next movie in here - Annihilation - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ufaDurSCKOk

Kenneth Branagh's next one is an adaptation of Agatha Christie's novel Murder On The Orient Express ... plus that cast - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mq4m3yAoW8E

The Lobster sparked a few conversations/ debates among my friends and it was a good watch overall ... the director's next one looks promising called The Killing Of A Sacred Deer - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQFdGfwChtw
