Zack Snyder’s new “visual masterpiece”. The whole thing seems to boil down to hot girls dressed in leather, wielding guns and swords and fighting a bunch of nazis, robots, dragons and a giant samurai with a minigun (!?). Then again, I guess I like to watch hot girls dressed in leather, wielding guns and swords and fighting a bunch of nazis, robots, dragons and a giant samurai with a minigun. I mean, come on, who doesn’t?
Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (loved loved LOVED both Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz) star as two sci-fi geeks who encounter an alien while traveling through America. The movie is directed by Greg Mottola (Superbad is a pretty funny movie) and Paul the alien is voiced by Seth Rogen (he ummm, has… a funny voice I guess?, just kidding, Pineapple Express!!!) Admittedly, this sounds pretty awesome. On the other hand, the trailer was a bit dissapointing. It might just be me expecting too much. Judge it yourself.
It is still not clear to me how it is possible that I have not heard of this movie until only a week ago when the trailer was released. It’s directed by David Gordon Green and it stars James Franco, Danny McBride and a pot smoking puppet. It is basically Pineapple Express set in the middle ages. There is no Seth Rogen but there is Natalie Portman and Zooey Deschanel, so I think we’ll be ok. (Be advised, it’s a red band trailer)
