I've been looking forward to Cowboys and Aliens for a long time, though the later trailers didn't quite blow me away as much. Here's one of the latest, that's been attached to the final HP movie.



Also, the trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes looks better than I'd have expected. Shrugging

Also, probably my most anticipated movie for the rest of the year ... Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows! cheers I adored the first movie and the new trailer looks full of win too. I can't wait for this one. Very Happy



And in case anyone forgot how awesome the first one was, or missed it...



My only concern is that Irene Adler seems to have gone missing in the second movie. Ah well, even though it will probably fall prey to sequelitis, I still think it will be a ton of fun and way more entertaining than most movies that come out. Cool

I definitely hope so. Nod It comes out in the US this weekend and I'll probably see it shortly after it comes out. I'll be sure to share my thoughts here or in one of the other movie threads. Very Happy

The first concept art for Legendary Pictures’ Paradise Lost has appeared online.

The film stars Bradley Cooper as Lucifer and is based on John Milton’s poem of the same name, and follows our anti-hero Satan as he tempts Adam and Eve away from the Garden of Eden (amongst many other nefarious acts).

There's definitely enough drama in the epic source material to give this huge blockbuster potential, but also enough for it to be a crushing disappointment if cack-handedly, erm… handled.

Alex Proyas is at the helm, and we're hoping this one is influenced by his classic The Crow and absolutely nothing like his atrocious Knowing.

Expect an action-packed picture, with the battle between archangels Michael and Lucifer taking centre stage.

No word yet on who will play Michael, but you can expect another big name to be thrown into the ring soon.

A movie based on Paradise Lost? Starring one of the guys from The Hangover? That ought to be something, though I'm not sure what. Laughing

And that's coming from a purist? Sad I will forgive you, because you have not read the books. All that silly love drama in the first film was enough to make me almost as crabbit as Petty - I can only imagine the look on his face had he seen it!

I never did get round to watching that version of Sherlock Holmes- probably for the better. I am slightly curious abou tth elatest oneif only becasue the cgi paddleship in it is in fact not cgi but the rea thing0 the Waverely,the World's last ocean going paddle steamer, and which has plied its trade for several generations taking tourists from Glasgow 'doon the water' to where I am and out to the islands. And its still doing it! Been on it several times, the sound of the big Victorian engines and the beat of the paddles is amazing. Very odd to see it in the trailer with the white cliffs of dover behind it!

Actually, having done a bit of Googling, it looks like she will be back. Very Happy I'm sure that the movie was quite different from the books, but it was still one helluva good ride (sort of like LOTR Very Happy ). I've seen plenty of better films, but I hadn't had this much fun watching a movie since I saw the original Pirates of the Caribbean. cheers

"quite different from the books"- Eldo

I think you may just have won the understatement of the month award Eldo!
f they must insisit on 'updating' they could at least do it with respect fpr the source. The BBC's Sherlock being a prime example of how to make a modern, engaging, witty version of Holmes which does not pee all over the orginal matter.



Sick of that otherwise lovely bit of music- used way to often in fan vids but the BBC vids are rubbish). New series is being filmed right now whilst Mr Freeman is away from TH set.

Quite different indeed. I've said it before I think, but I'll say it again: The film itself wasn't bad, but it wasn't in any way a Sherlock Holmes film. If I made a film about wizards and a boy with black hair, a scar and a pair of glasses and named the film Harry Potter, even if I made the story up myself, I'd probably attract millions of viewers but it wouldn't be a real Harry Potter film. That's what I think the people behind Sherlock Holmes (the film) did. It's a good film in many ways, but to me it seems they wanted to make this wild detective/mystery film and used a character that was already well known and popular to attract viewers.

Funny, that sounds a lot like how Peter Jackson wanted to make a SFX-heavy fantasy epic and then decided to get the rights to LOTR*, which is a story that was already well-known and popular and attracted a lot of viewers? Very Happy

*PJ's original idea wasn't even to make LOTR, just a fantasy movie, as he has described in several documentary and bonus features. Wink

That review sums up a lot of my own feelings towards Lucas on this one.

Does that mean we have to wait another year before the full updated conversion comes out ?
And isnt it going to be converted into 3D ? Sure i heard that somewhere.

True Very Happy Laughing But if you decide to read the Sherlock Holmes books one day you'll see what I mean - even Jackson was true to the books in comparison Wink

Fair enough. Smile I was pretty sure even before my brother (who is a Holmes book fan) started complaining that the Holmes of the book wasn't really an action star. Very Happy In any event, Baingil things I should read the Holmes books, so I might have to some time. Cool

I haven't seen the movie, but then, I've never seen any Sherlock Holmes movies/shows that really stick with the books at all. Which is a pity; I think The Valley of Fear would make an awesome movie!

I agree, it's one of my favourite books of the series Smile You should check out this show. Petty and GB recommended it to me and it's great. If you want a show that sticks with the books, this is the one Smile (The actors who play Holmes and Watson are excellent too).

Couldn't agree more. Superb adaptations of the books and characters.
