    Elizabeth Clay will be played by a table cloth stretched on a clothesline.



    Every time Jake Gyllenhaal bangs her Bill Murray will call Bed, Bath and Beyond at 3 in the morning.

    Gyllenhaal = Dalton?
    McGregor = Wade Garrett?
    Who plays Brad Wesley and who plays Elizabeth Clay?

    I'm sorry. Once Sam Elliott plays a character, that character needs to be retired.

    This has gotten pretty good reviews and might be worth a look see.

    Rollerball was remade. It was about as good as the Speed Racer movie. In other words, it was a POS.

    ChildWorld (movies since, let's say, 1995) should not remake movies, they only emphasize how infantile mass culture is. Movies and TV have completely switched places. TV is now subtle, complicated, and intelligent. Movies are now as shallow, stupid, and lowest-common-denominator facing as TV with the Big Three. Even the successful and beautifully made franchises that dominate sales now (MCU, Star Wars, LoTR) are intellectually and emotionally adolescent. Meanwhile TV, which used to be dumba-ss, suddenly has grown up themes, motivations, plots, and even acting.

    Sometimes hype isn't enough to trump everything. As a whole, moviegoers are pretty keen on blatant cash grabs, especially if they are not attached to a franchise.
    They can? I am gonna disagree with you on that...half the films that come out are blatant cash grabs and do well enough to make money. You literally described half the successful comedies out there.

    The film will cost almost nothing to make (unless they are stupid) and will have enough people see it to make a profit. That is all that matters. The film will legitimately suck but people will go just to see how much it sucks.

    I love that movie. MAD did a great parody of it.

    They’re not losing. That’s fake news

    Warner Bros has killed the Batgirl movie after spending 90 million on it. It will never be released apparently. So, they can claim the loss on their taxes is what I heard this morning.

    It's been in the works multiple times. Rhonda Rousey was supposed to make it a couple years ago.

    Maybe they did. We've been supporting their lazy as-ses for 150 years.
