    Pixar isn’t the “can’t miss” studio it was 20 years ago, but it’s original stories are usually great. This one seems to homage music and death again like Coco:

    I dunno, Crown. It's got Nicholas Cage AND Cheech's best friend; I don't know if I trust them to not ham it up.

    Personally, I'm still waiting for "At the Mountains of Madness."

    Cage is just fine when used right. His last film was “Mandy” and I thought it was the best film of 2018.

    “The Colour Out Of Space” was Lovecraft’s personal favourite story, the one he considered his masterpiece. He was paid $25 for writing it. Less than half a week’s pay to most of us by inflation. He died young, penniless and unknown; his entire fame achieved posthumously. Sad.

    He invented EVERYTHING: man-eating undead, sharp-toothed monsters, inter-dimensional creatures and leather-winged demons. Body horror and slimy things jumping out of the dark, every successful modern horror writer treats him as their touchstone


    But if you read his stories— my GOD are his descriptions excruciatingly detailed and cumbersome. He puts Tom Wolfe to shame at times.

    Evidently they decided to reshoot the entire movie since that first trailer’s release....

    I prefer Cage when he has a hokey southern accent.

    Yeah, I think my favorite Cage performance was Sailor Ripley in "Wild at Heart."

    From what I've read, the director wanted him to channel his character from his performance in "Vampire's Kiss," so I think we have a 0% chance that he won't ham this up.

    Nicolas Cage will be playing Nicolas Cage in the Nicolas Cage story “The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent.” It’s about Cage trying —and failing— to get a part in a Tarantino film so he writes a screenplay with a Hispanic drug lord.

    This was practically inevitable. And brilliant.

    Oh look, a film franchise that doesn’t look fucked-with.

    Thank you.

    I could have sworn I heard Daniel Craig was done as Bond. I was looking forward to someone else taking over the role. I do really like Craig as an actor, but Bond is just so wrong for him. The guy doesn't fit the character at all.

    I think He and Dalton are the closest resemblances to Fleming’s original Bond character. Dalton was a great Bond in lower-par Bond movies.

    I agree with Crown, he definitely resembles the early versions of Bond in the books more than anyone else, even Dalton I think. Roger Moore, Brosnan and even Connery to an extent were more like cartoon characters come-to-life.

    What? No all-female cast with a sassy black chick cracking wise? How could this be good?

    ...by doing the exact opposite of what you just said. But we already knew that.

    This looks GREAT. Fans will no doubt like it takes place in the original film’s universe, while creating a unique setting and story for it.
