This Week in Geek - 12/18/09 X-Men, Batman, Predator, Star Wars and Chinese People

Pic of the Week from movie-moron.com

Again, we present our opinions on this weeks' top news.
  1. Bryan Singer, the director of the only good X-Men movies, has signed on to do "X-Men: First Class" and has ordered an entirely new script. The film, a prequel to the previous X-Men fims, will now focus on the relationship between Professor X (Charles Xavier) and Magneto (Erik Lehnsherr) and the development of the school for mutants. This film will now restore my faith in the franchise and finally remove the taste of bile that still lingers from seeing Hugh Jackman's naked butt. [/Film]
    TOSS-UP: If you had to replace Bryan Singer as the director who would it be: Tim Burton or Steven Spielberg?
  2. It's insanely cool that William Baldwin was almost cast as Schumaker's Batman. "I was one of Joel Schumacher's top choices" Baldwin said in an interview, "Monday morning, the headlines in the trades said that George Clooney had gotten the part. So apparently, I did actually come very close". He would have been awesome as Batman, but, I would pay a million dollars to watch Gary Busey. [Comic Book Movie]
  3. No woman will ever sleep along side a man in his bed shaped like the "Star Wars Millenium Falcon". Although, it would be perfect for my future "man-cave". [/Film]
  4. ODDMAKERS: What are the odds that the Predator motorcycle would beat the Giger Alien motorcycle? The Alien bike looks cooler, but I think it has too much wind resistance. I'd give the Predator bike at 80%.
  5. Roland Emmerich's "2012" is on track to be the highest grossing US film in China due to it's pro-China themes. Not to give away any spoilers, but China and the Chinese people pay a significant part in the story. Currently, the foreign film record is held by "Transfomers: Revenge of the Fallen" with $65.8 million (400m in local currency). This will inevitably lead to movie studios pandering to other countries to increase sales. I'm not looking forward to "Crouching Transformers: Hidden Dragon" or "Slumdog Superman".

  1. Its really a great news to read about.Eagerly waiting to watch the new movies of this series.....

  2. @09smithjane I think its gonna be awesome too. Hopefully itll get back on track.

  3. 1. I think it's a good idea to move to the next level with the "X-men Origins" series, and Singer is the man who brought us the originals. TOSS-UP: Steven Spielberg.
    2. That was a close call; William Baldwin? Has any Baldwin brother ever been good?
    3. True. But with a Millenium Falcon bed, who needs women?
    4. Odds are 80% for the Alien Bike. Predator Bike has too much crap on it. Now we just need the Alien Bike versus Predator Bike race. It must happen!
    5. Well, I guess somebody has to watch that junkfest, "2012." Funny titles.

    Funny...I don't remember the epic movie series "Motor Bikes for Sale." Was that produced by Steven Spielberg or George Lucas?"

  4. Had a look back at the Millenium Falcon bed, specifically the babe dressed as snowbound Leia. That bed is perfect for some Leia fantasies.

    1. LOL serves me right for not googling him. I thought it was Alec Baldwin. That would have been sweet. Daniel? Meh
    3. LOL. Yes indeed. Life is beautiful. The outfit was a nice touch indeed. ;)
    4. I was thinking the same thing! AvP on bikes! Yeah!
