Trailer Catch All

Usually sequels are done because of business decisions, not artistry. Doing a sequel like that is definitely more art than dollars.

Wow.

I never saw the original but I kinda wanna see the sequel.

Yeah, that looks killer.

I was just really happy to see that Hildur Guðnadóttir (yes, I cut and pasted) is composing again. Joker 1 wouldn't have worked at all without her music. Although, I am curious / intrigued / slightly worried about how they are going to integrate her compositions and soundscapes with more traditional songs and musical numbers.

She also did the music for the Chernobyl miniseries. I don't often pay that much attention to musical scores, but her work in Chernobyl was also notably excellent.

It looks like the art house film DC never knew they needed.

Does that mean it’s a Vertigo production?

It will be under the new Elseworld classification under Gunn

I thought it was going to be a musical. Folks are going to be upset (as usual) if it is and this trailer is “lying.”

That looks good.

They showed way too much, but yeah. The Dutch movie that it is remaking was one of the more upsetting movies I've seen in a while. It really goes for it, so I am curious if this one is going to make any changes on that front.

Transformers One trailer drops April 18. Hollywood Reporter says the animated feature is due out September 13... my birthday. So... I guess, thank you 20th Century Studios and Paramount?

Did I mess that up? Would it be "the Danish movie"? If so, I apologize. Or are both acceptable?

I have no idea what movie you were originally referring to but you said "The Dutch movie". So, I made a "joke" about probably not very remembered Ed O'Neill vehicle Dutch.

The Dutch are from the Netherlands and the Danes are from Denmark.

So I read this book a couple years ago and while it was good, I don’t really think it was “needs a tv adaptation” good. I liked it but it’s a pretty standard and predictable multiverse story. Crouch has better novels that could be adapted.

Agreed that there's better books from him, but it's pretty cool that this got made.

Also i think we can safely start calling Apple.tv SyFy2.tv

Young Woman and the Sea

According to IMDB, it was a Dutch/Danish co-production.

For some reason Dark Matter reminds me of an old Harrison Ford movie, Frantic. Searching for that movie, I learned that there are a fair few movies where a guy wakes up and his life is not what he remembers, and nobody believes him.

That doesn't quite describe Frantic from what I remember, but very much fits the description of Liam Neeson's Unknown, and Bruce Greenwood's old show from the 90s called Nowhere Man.

Maybe my memory was conflating Frantic and Unknown. Anyway, it does seem to be a popular theme.
