So.....the Meg.

I remember all the hype and hysteria when Jaws came out (yes I am that old, I remember when it was in theaters.) I wonder if the Meg will capture that fervor.

Looks fun. I don't know about the fervor, with Jaws 1 -4 , the knock-offs like Orca, and vid games with similar references or themes, I doubt it will recapture that fervor. Jaws had great characters and character development besides the action. I have a feeling this will be mostly action and light on the characters and story, but it might surprise me.

I don't think it will inspire fear of the water like JAWS did. Jaws was real, it could happen it did happen.
It still happens. The first time I went to OZ a year after jaws was released we went to an aquarium in Manly, it was like a huge swimming pool and it only had sharks in it all different types of sharks and the kicker was they were all pulled from Sydney Harbour.

Damn sharks and Irukandji jellyfish which has venom 100 times as potent as a cobras.  Think I'll stay dry in Australia.

don't forget the blue ringed octopus

I never gave it a second thought when I went in to the surf, its far more dangerous getting in the truck every morning. I don't give that a second thought either come to think of it.

I am looking forward to this. I'm a sucker for sea movies - I've seen Perfect Storm, Master and Commander , and the Bounty many many times, among other sea type flicks. There's just something fascinating being stuck out in the water, nothing but waves horizon to horizon.

Yeah. Thought the same thing. Overboard was mildly funny at best. Can't figure why it deserves a reboot.

NOT really excited about the new Venom. I like Tom Hardy, just something about Venom's look isn't right for me.

Probably because it looks totally fake.

Yeah, and lizards aren't scary to me, plus tentacles have been done before. There's nothing new here. And in spots, Hardy sounds like Adam Sandler.

NOW the Meg I will watch just because Statham's in it. Dude cracks me up, and usually the action is somewhat interesting.

Actually, I rather enjoyed the trailer, until the kooky costume was revealed at the end of it. Tom Hardy makes all the difference though. A lesser actor couldn't pull this off. Even Venom's voice was an eyeroll for me.

Venom looks like a dude in a rubber suit in a 60s Toho movie. Awful.

AH MAN, John, posing the difficult questions...both extremely well trained...both think ahead so that's a null...honestly can only give to Wick for being younger and probably slightly faster than Reacher, skill wise they are equals. Now screen presence wise, OMG Cruise 3x Keanu. I love them both, but Cruise just grabs me more as a person (mind you I get his Reacher persona and his Ethan persona confused as they are 99% the same person.) When Tom is upset, I buy it more than when Keanu is upset.

After 1000 iterations in the simulator, John Wick defeated Jack Reach 692 times. That's a 69.2 win percentage. John Wick vanquishes Jack Reacher and earns the first ever official title of Top Movie Bad Ass.

Margot Kidder has passed. I feel bad for her, she had issues in her life but I always felt she was a decent actress.

I love all the MI movies, regardless of how eye rolling some of the action is. I always get fished in, line and sinker. They DO need to limit how much they are showing in the trailer tho, giving a lot of story away.

Ah man they included that scene where TC snapped his ankle. Wince

OH UGH. please get a good writer for the story, or pick a good series from the comics.

I don't recall who is playing Gambit in the the movie, but I just wanted to say Ashton Kutcher could do a good Gambit portrayal, has all the right qualities.

Wow!  "Unbreakable" was okay.  Bruce Willis was in his "less is more" phase, so his performance borders on wooden (IMO).  I think he was less than thrilled with it as well.  

Split was very good and James McAvoy was excellent in it -- he really was.  So, I'm looking forward to this one.

Ashton Kutcher as Gambit? Meh. Not to shit on his chops, he's good, but...

Imo Idris Elba would be a great curveball choice for Gambit. Matthew Mcconaughey could KILL that role. It would be even more awesomesauce to get Mcconaughey to play Longshot.

I could see Kutcher killing it as Havoc.

Venom: bleh. the trailer looks so BORING for this. and I'm a big Hardy fan, but man I think the character/effects of Venom are going to make this a total DUD. Bring on Mad Max 2.

2nd trailer for Glass. I have to say I'm interested, McAvoy's character in Split was very interesting.  Sam J will deliver always as long as he has words to say. Willis looks like he has nothing to say in the trailer, I wonder if this means his character is kinda 3rd party or they are deliberately misleading us?
