Behold, Dunetheus!

Dunn, this one is specifically for you. It’s no secret that HR Geiger’s work on Jodorowsky’s failed Dune would eventually lead him to Dan O’Bannon who wrote Alien. The design for both the Xenomorph and Space Jockey were from Geiger’s works. It then makes sense that more of his work would serve as inspiration for Ridley Scott’s latest Prometheus. Only the works in question that inspired structures in Scott’s latest are actually designs that were going to be used for Dune! That’s right, decades later some of the visions of Jodorowsky’s insane, out of this world, I wish this movie had been made more than any other in the history of movies, Dune are coming to frution.

The Elders Have Arrived

A bunch of behind the scenes stills from the set of Prometheus were just released over on the Prometheus Forums. Most of the photos seem to be of the Engineers getting into costume, along with a couple of still shots from the movie.

Lone Ranger & Why Bloated Budgets Need To Stop

So Disney’s planned Lone Ranger film has been through the budgetary ringer.  Originally, It was slated to be about 250 million, not including marketing, then it was shut down.  Then it was negotiated down to 215 million and back on.  Now it is being reported that the budget has soared back up to 250 million, and it is weeks behind schedule.  This has to stop. Yes I am well aware that Johnny Depp is typically a franchise cash cow and Disney still wants it “new Pirates” franchise, but you have to stop and think about at what cost.

Drunk Goggles

Before the sold-out midnight screening of Avenger the audience applauded the Spider-man preview. They went nuts over the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ trailer. Even the first look at ‘Frankenweenie’ got some cheers. ‘Prometheus’ got some boos and groans.

I was shocked. But if you really think about it, is it a good trailer?
