Comic Con Movies

Comic Con was last weekend and a whole slew of movies were discussed and previewed. Click the links for some excellently snarky comments, and reports from the Con floor. Here’s a few that caught my eye…

Tron 2. With a TERRIBLE title, though the reviews from the trailer were all very good.

Red Sonja – Seriously, we need a remake of this? The posters crack me up:

Robocop – I think it’s being billed as a remake of the first, not another one in the series. But they announced that Darren Aronofsky is directing. Yes, the guy who directed Pi is going to direct Robocop.

Harold & Kumar 3 – Bush Strikes Back? 🙂

Rocky Horror – Yes, MTV is remaking Rocky Horror. Why God, why? (I’m not a fan, sorry kids.)

Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland – He’s cast a lead for the title role. Johnny Depp’s allegedly considering the part of the Mad Hatter. This project excites me.

And not from Comic Con but I have been meaning to mention it, there are TWO Sherlock Holmes movies in the works. One starring (get this) Sasha Baron Cohen (as Holmes) and Will Ferrell (as Watson). The other starring.. Robert Downey Jr. Mmm… hottie Holmes.

Ok, I think I need a nap. Anything here leap out at ya?

  1. The Red Sonja one depresses me. I’m a HUGE fan of the original Conans and Red Sonja and there is no way Rose “I slept with Marilyn Manson and let my booty hang out at the MTV Awards” McGowan can rock that role like Brigitte Nielson. She may be a drunk with Flava Flav cooties in her hoo ha, but she was awesome as Red Sonja.

  2. Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is the only one that sounds like a movie I’d want to see. I’m sure H&K3 would be good, but I still haven’t seen the 2nd one, so who knows.

  3. NoMiniMom – LOL. Well, Rose is sleeping with the director so… There have been talks of a Conan reboot too.

    Endub – I *might* see Tron cuz I loved the original as a kid. But yeah.

    I deliberately left off GI Joe and Lost Boys 2 and The Wolfman because I can. 🙂

  4. I’m looking forward to BOTH of the Sherlock Holmes movies. I mean, really, how can I resist Will Ferrell as Watson. C’mon! And I love Robert Downey Jr in anything. ’nuff said.

  5. KC – You know what, I think they might not be too terrible. I think it’s just funny that two were announced right on top of the other but are TOTALLY different takes on the story. RDJ is delicious.
