I was a big fan of Robot Jox growing up and Pacfic Rim seems like the closest we have come to that in The US in good while and I’m not even going to count Robot Jox 2. It is nice to see Charlie Hunnam getting some big screen time.
Oblivion The Movie Staring Tom Cruise. From the trailer it looks pretty good. Kind of like Battlefield Earth meets The Time Machine with a little bit of post apocalyptic scenery thrown in.
Jack Harper (Cruise) is one of the last few drone repairmen stationed on Earth. Part of a massive operation to extract vital resources after decades of war with a terrifying threat known as the Scavs, Jack’s mission is nearly complete.
Living in and patrolling the skies from thousands of feet above, his soaring existence is brought crashing down when he rescues an attractive female stranger from a downed spacecraft. Her arrival triggers a chain of events that forces him to question everything he knows and puts the fate of humanity in his hands.
I recently saw the trailer for the upcoming movie warm bodies and I must say it is nice to see a new take on the zombie movie genre. It seems that zombies are the in thing and its nice to see something new. From the book of the same name by Isaac Marion.
From Wikipedia :
The narrator of Warm Bodies is a zombie inhabiting a post-apocalyptic America that has been destroyed by decades of wars and natural disasters, culminating in a mysterious zombie plague. The narrator has no memory of who he is and no understanding of what it means to be alive or undead, he has only the first letter of his name (“R) and a vague notion that something is not right with the world.
While eating a young man’s brain and experiencing his memories, R encounters the man’s girlfriend, Julie, and makes an unexpected choice to save her instead of killing her. He takes her back to the abandoned airport where the zombies congregate and hides her in a 747. While trying to decide what to do with her–and his slowly growing self-awareness–an unlikely relationship begins to develop, with unexpected consequences for the rest of the zombie horde.
