Well...

SPOILERS FOR DARK PHOENIX

According to test screenings she dies almost immediately. They probably didn't want to bother putting too much effort in.

Anyway.



Despite all the CGI it somehow looks like a low-budget version of the Del Toro Hellboys. Probably something to do with Neil Marshall's fondness for B list actors. I'll still go and see it, but I imagine it'll be a 7/10, easily forgettable romp.

Night Call: a game what I worked on. Out now!

The director has confirmed the X-Men spoiler above which is an odd move.

Also that Hellboy trailer looks great. Such a talented director.

Yep, only took about 30 years.

Seems to be th same atmosphere as Critters 2, comedy horror with brilliant practical effects.

3 had a young Leo Di Caprio, 4 was odd as it made a series regular change sides without any reason.

5 (well sort of 5) as it's a TV series not a film will hopefully lead to some critters merchandise and toys.

Soon enough we'll hopefully be seeing Jim Carrey in full Robotnik costume.

"Chill and Likable" :dread:

Who comes up with this branding gooseberry fool?

Also likable is a truly horrendous spelling.

Looks like really bad fan art from the mid-2010s.

So Will Smith is getting gooseberry fool for being cast to play Richard Williams (father of Serena and Venus) as he's not dark-skinned enough. Colourism, apparently. I didn't know that was a thing.

Thoughts?

He ought to stick to playing blue skinned characters.

Limited role options mind: Smurfs, Avatar and possibly playing Beast in a future X-Men movie?

It is an interesting situation, I've not seen complaints along these lines before? (not that I've been looking for them mind you).

Often it seems that where we hear a lot about white-washing and the casting of white western actors in roles which should go to someone from a more minority representation (which we can all agree is a Bad Thing™) we don't tend to hear so much about more "nuanced" inaccuracies in casting like this.

For example you often get a mix of SE Asia actors in roles (e.g. a Korean actor playing a Chinese role) and that doesn't (again, to my knowledge) tend to get called out.
