Oy vey. This doesn’t look particularly good. Of course, the exclamation, “Thunder, Thunder, Thundercats, Hooooo!” brought back all kinds of fun childhood memories. Maybe there’s still some hope for the movie. (fingers crossed)
UPDATE: Here’s the story behind where this footage comes from, and the status of the Thundercats movie.
I’ll admit to being less than enthusiastic about the Captain America movie. I thought Chris Evans (although I adore him and his body to death) was a bad casting choice. I also thought the early costume pictures seemed too boring. But this poster actually got me interested again. There’s just something about the quiet seriousness of it that makes me want to know more. Maybe this movie will be okay after all.
I couldn’t help but repurpose this quote from The Dark Knight:
Nancy: Then why was it me who was the only one who lost everything in November!?
Batman: It wasn’t.
Nancy: The GOP chose me!
Batman: Because you were the best of us! They wanted to prove that someone as good as you could fall!
The difference between Nancy Pelosi and Harvey Dent is that Pelosi is still kicking and fighting the good fight.
It’s rare that Disney tones down the “go all out and make thing 3D explodey magical special effecty” and does something the right way. This remake of Winnie the Pooh looks like it has real potential to be, dare I say, good. Thanks to Benacker for giving me the heads up.
