That announcement has been noticed by people, including Mr Mark Millar MBE.

And presumably by Netlix’s cadre of highly trained attack lawyers too.


#1384

Was Supercrooks about a load of non-powered robbing a superhero’s lair? I don’t remember that but it’s been a while since I read it.

Either way, a superhero heist film isn’t the most original idea (it’s basically how Ant-Man was sold too, isn’t it?) so a lot will depend on the details.

IP protection is important. This is probably something different and may never get made anyway.

But it will be watched by Netflix as it develops. They’d be negligent not to.


#1386

I think it was super villains robbing another super villain.


#1387

Of course. But at this stage I think claims of a ripoff might be a bit premature.


#1388

Good job no one is claiming that then.

As it happens I like it when various approaches are explored to any genre. A healthy range is important.

But care must be taken too.


#1389

:wink:

#1391

Noice

#1393

isn’t Dora supposed to be, like, 7 years old?


#1394

Younger than that even IIRC


#1395

Going from Sicario 2 to that is a weird choice.


#1396

Typecasting fail! Which is good for her. :slight_smile:


#1397

Bit late, but I still want to mention that the eyes don’t bother me anymore in the second Alita trailer. Whatever they did, it is working for me now.

Chris Pine and Chris Hemsworth ‘Star Trek 4’ Future In Doubt as Talks Fall Through

The two actors were in negotiations to star in Star Trek 4 but sources say that talks between the two actors and the companies making the new installment, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media, have fallen apart, with both sides walking away from the table.

Dealmaking with other returning castmembers — including Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Karl Urban, Simon Pegg and John Cho — was expected to follow.

–SNIP–

The deal points came down to the usual suspect: money. Pine and Hemsworth, among Hollywood’s A-list when starring in DC or Marvel movies, are said to be asking the studios to stick to existing deals. Paramount, according to insiders, contends that Trek is not like a Marvel or Star Wars movie and is trying to hold the line on a budget.

The actors, according to sources, insist they have deals in place and that the studios are reneging on them, forcing them to take pay cuts as they try to budget a movie that is following a mediocre performer.

–SNIP–

The studio, however, is backing its budget tough talk with past performance numbers. The last movie, Star Trek Beyond, grossed only $343 million worldwide on a budget of $190 million. In fact, one insider says the companies lost money on the movie.

–SNIP–

Not for lack of trying, the Trek movies seem to have a ceiling, especially globally.

It is unclear what the next step is for Trek 4. The project could recast Kirk and his father. Or perhaps the two sides could come back to the table.

Either way, Paramount and Skydance insiders say the movie, also produced by J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot, remains a priority development and is not being put on hold. Adding a veneer of enterprise to the project is that for the first time in the franchise history, a female director, S. J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones, Succession), is sitting in the captain’s chair.

That was in the original series. They aged her up to 10 for this sequel series.

And the movie looks like it’s ageing her up slightly again.

(Yes, I have watched far too much Dora The Explorer. But on the plus side I’ve learned a bit of Spanish.)


#1400

I wonder if Map will also be aged up into “Tour Guide”


#1401

I’m the Tour Guide, I’m the Tour Guide, I’m the Tour Guide, I’m the Tour Guide, I’m the Tour Guide doesn’t really scan.
