Either love’em or hate’em you’ll probably be watching two actors in their underwear beating the crap out of each other or a CGI enemy with a bombastic soundtrack in a darkened theater and wonder: Why is this happening, again?
And the trailer has arrived! Staring Matt Damon, Jessica Chastain, Kristen Wiig, Kate Mara, Michael Peña, Jeff Daniels, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Donald Glover directed by Ridley Scott.
I’m happy to see Ridley Scott directing Sci-Fi again. I’m happy to see anyone directing good sci-fi like Interstellar. I would be remiss in saying I am reminded of Mission to Mars and Red Planet both came out in 2000. Both films I enjoyed on their own merits even if they didn’t stick the landing.
Ridley Scott’s Prometheus may have been an over baked turd but the set designs and the SFX were worth ignoring the plot holes you could Tokyo drift a Star Destroyer through.
The lead up to Comic Con begins with the mad rush for tickets. This sounds really easy but it’s become more like getting Red Sox tickets. The hotel reservations is ten times worse and looking at places on VRBO is easier. Then reselling unused tickets which ends with the scheduling being dolled out two weeks before the con.
Over the years the convention website has gotten considerably more detailed and easier to use. They even started allowing pre-ordering of t-shirts so no more lines like the ones I complained about in 2011. The introduction of My Schedule through sched.com is one of the better additions to the con. No more dogeared newspaper pages looking for panels! It’s all at your finger tips on your tablet or smart phone!
Unfortunately, that’s if the SDCC Comic-Con and the SDCC Comic-Con Sched App were updated. In this day and age you live and die by the app. Neither of which have been updated in a dog’s age. Something I hope was just overlooked but with a week to go it’s looking like we won’t be seeing a proper working SDCC App with sched.com integration until 2014.
Die Hard in a bland location has become such short hand in this day and age you don’t even need to make to the end of the trailer. Who knew protecting the White House from armed insuregents could be so boring.
