Well this is interesting.  I was just thinking the other day that there is a remarkable focus on infantry in war movies.  Then Brad Pitt comes round and brings us Fury, a WWII movie about a Sherman tank crew.
A vehicle crew is instantly an ensemble, and requires jargon the audience "cannot comprehend"?  Dunno.  Plenty of tension in those tin boxes on tracks.

Following the recent news that director Shane Black will be remaking the classic 1987 alien action flick Predator for Fox, Black has explained that his Predator movie will be an "inventive sequel"; not a reboot.

Speaking to Collider, Black said he and screenwriter Fred Dekker value the "rich mythology" that's already been introduced in previous Predator films.

"Why start over?" the director said, explaining that he and Dekker will be "expanding and exploring the existing Predator mythology, rather than hitting the restart button."

Little enough has been said, and much has been hinted at, so this can work out really well.

One take on what's been good so far this year: to my shame, the only one of these I've seen is the Grand Budapest Hotel (great silly fun in a classic Anderson vein, at least as good as, say, The Life Aquatic).  Also, #1 and #3 on that list were already very much on my list of films to watch sometime.  Anything they missed, do you think?

Confirmation that, yes, Superman will be in the next Superman movie, just in case anyone was worried.

Y'know, I just had a thought.  Why didn't they have Michael Bay do the GI Joe movie?  Now I'm sure that people are going to be all "because of this this this and that", but considering just how much he's pro military, you'd think that that would help.

Stumbled on this while surfing, but Appleseed Alpha's a thing.  It's supposed to be a prequel to the main story, when Deunan and Briareos were kicking around post-WWIII.  Looks like it's by the same guys who did the Starship Troopers: Invasion movie.  So it's probably going to be meh, but I might pick it up on sale on DVD.

Pretty, but I'm not sure I understood anything in that trailer.

Nah, the double blasters on the end of each wing are a dead giveaway. Definitely an X-Wing, perhaps a 'newer' model than those in Eps 4-6.
