It's from Stargate isn't it. Jerry Goldsmith's work I think.

Yes, it is. This one looks like it will be good. Would be better w/o AJ. I can't stand her since the stupid BoobRaider movie.

You have to admit though, she was the only one to could pull it off well. TR is my fav all time game and I cant imagine anyone better to play the role.

I want to see this but I am thinking it is going to be a very bad movie... aparently it is shot almost entirly on green screen and it has the starwars ep1-3 style directing were the actors are completly 2ndary to the effects.

Still giant robots flatning cities? Ya gota go see it eh?

I heard there was also a Transformer live actrion and Neo Evangellion live action getting done at wingnut...

I've heard of the Live NGE, but not Live TF. I think both would flop if they do them. Just the trying to use CG & RL is a hard sell.

looks pretty stupid to me. Pearl Harbor without the benefit of a built-in emotional connection with the audience.

:eatthis:

and that's no compliment for the gawd awful PH "movie"

Bai Ling, who plays the black-clad, martial-arts-fighting "Mysterious Woman" in the upcoming Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow, told SCI FI Wire that her costume was so tight that she couldn't move. The crew tailored Ling's ultra-sleek costume to eliminate all wrinkles, rendering her virtually immobile, she said in an interview at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention. When they were done, she tried to move. "I couldn't. ... The leather wouldn't [move]. So they had to remake it and make it bigger, ... but still in the end, [it was] very tight." After spending a day in the costume, Ling said, "I felt like a wild animal, like a caged animal. ... [I was] really suffering in the suit."

For Sky Captain, which combines live actors with computer-generated environments, Ling and the rest of the castâ€

Pearl Harbor was a historical event - it has an emotional relationship with viewers right from the get-go (particularly americans). usually it's a tragic thing. the movie was tepid, but just the fact that it was about...well...Pearl Harbor establishes a relationship with the audience that a movie-goer can be like "yeah. ok. I identify with this" without ever seeing the movie, before going into it. Sky Captain looks a lot like PH to me - I get the same nauseous feeling watching the preview without the connection to a lived experience (ww2).

my second impression of SC is PH crossbred with Iron Giant.

Oh, before the Stargate theme, anyone recognize the intro music? I believe it's from Batman, and whatever other movies it's been used in.
