    Anybody got the word on this "The Day After Tomorrow" movie I've seen posters for? By the makers of ID4?

    Looks like a global warming disaster movie, but I've got a soft spot for ID4 and you never know... :D

    From IMDB

    Plot Outline: A climatologist tries to figure out a way to save the world from abrupt global warming. He must get to his young son in New York, which is being taken over by a new ice age.

    Nothing to do with ID4, but it looks cool all the same...

    Just as long as it doesn't turn in to a greenie flick. :p As much as I agree with the importance of being environmentally friendly, I don't think we need another film ramming it down our throats. Looks like it might spare us that though if we're lucky.

    From the preview in front of The Butterfly Effect, It looks like (and no offence to any US ppl who read here) another 'Americans save the day' film... Just the way the Ad shows it..

    Doesnt mean its going to be bad of course, just how it looked..

    Thanks for the word, Sith. :D

    While we're talking about it (okay, really since Stinky_Jawa mentioned it :D ) I actually didn't mind The Butterfly Effect too much. The backstory and the actual how of Ashton's flipping through alternate realities left a bit to be desired, I agree, but I actually was too engrossed in the actual permutations of the lead character's different lives to notice...I don't think it quite deserved the drubbing it got. :?

    I'm going to get a Tshirt printed with the new Batman symbol on it that Katarnym posted on the last page:

    [image=http://members.dodo.com.au/~narsil/Batmanbegins.jpg]

    Anyone else want one? I'll see if we can get a group deal or something.

    And yes, I do know I'm a Batgeek, pointing this out will only result in a huge sarcastic "well duh!" from me :)

    I'm not much of a batgeek but I like the look of that. If you want some numbers for a group deal, I wouldn't mind grabbing one.

    Sounds good to me.

    If there are any Harry Potter fans out there, the trailer for the next movie is out now. It's been on just about every news report on tv so far.

    That's one movie I'm really looking forward to. I was never interested in Harry Potter until we got the first movie out on DVD for the kids and discovered that we actually liked it ourselves. Since then I've read all the books (including the ones written for comic relief).
    I saw the teaser trailer a few months ago. I'll have to check out the new full trailer.

    I didn't realise it until last night (the preview trailer popped up during 24), but Kill Bill Volume 2 is out this month. Can't wait for that one.

    That's a film we're gonna be waiting to see session number 1 on the release date, I've heard some great things from the test screenings last month.

    And if you want to see what the new Batmobile is gonna look like, the official site has a new clickable link on the logo.

    Definitely not what I was expecting, but it looks like they're going in a Frank Miller direction with the designs.
    Looking good...

    I've always been more partial to sleek looking cars so the Tim Burton one suits my tastes better than a huge chunky version. Should be interesting to see how the whole film turns out. Will this film have any link with the other 4 films or is it a completely new take?

    Completely new, that is, back to what Batman originally was in the comics.

    Hmmm...looks like Bats is driving a used car this time...shades of a Colonial Marines APC, anyone?

    (Not that I mind.) :D

    Kinda makes sense, and going with the new level of realism many comic book movies are being treated with nowadays.
    It also fits very closely with the comic designs that resparked Batman's cinema entry in 1989, The Dark Knight Returns.
    I'm liking this film more and more every time I see and hear something about it, it really seems on track with the original Batman character.

    I am, but I'm really not expecting anything special. Much more interesting I'll bet will be the inevitable merchandise tie-ins and possibly another game, but you know what they say, you can never have too many Gieger Alien models about the house...
