Nothing to See Here, People

I just wanted to take a minute to let everyone know that I do NOT have 6 new stills of Prometheus to share with you.

I also do not have a new picture of Bane as he glares forward with muffled rage.

There are no new character posters here for The Amazing Spider-man, and I certainly wouldn’t think you’d find an Instagram-style pic of Peter Parker…because that would be ridiculous.

You will also find nary an MIB3 featurette, extended Prometheus featurette, or new Snow White and the Huntsman movie clips.  All of that would just be excessive.

No, I think I’m just going to save the last 17% of these films that we haven’t seen for the theaters.  You’re welcome.


Prometheus Aliens Free to Drop F-Bombs!

[UPDATED 5/8/12]  Deadline is reporting that Fox has indeed confirmed the R rating for Prometheus.  This is an enormous risk for Fox.  Now we just need to show up, enjoy the hell out of this one, and send studio execs the message that an R rated summer blockbuster really can work.  …Its either that or we fall into another bleak decade of watered down PG-13 films that not even Die Hard or The Terminator could overcome.

[5/7/12]  20th Century Fox appears to agree with the rest of the planet and will not alter the content of Prometheus based upon the MPAA rating bestowed upon them.  We are basing this assumption on the surfacing of what appears to be a legitimate, early ticket stub for the highly anticipated film:

That right there, my friends, is a big fat R rating!  The ticket was scanned by IMDB user “dvonnesoneek” and subsequently the internets were alerted by comicbookmovie.com.

If this is truly the real deal, words cannot describe how happy this makes me.  While I understand that excessive violence and language does not a good movie make, I have always felt that the Alien franchise (or universe, or second removed cousins, or however else Ridley Scott wants to tie Prometheus to previous films) is one that deserves a serious, unaltered, adult tone.

We have seen what happens when a studio insists on being too much involved (Alien 3) and we have seen what happens when you take this content into the ticket-selling friendly realm of PG-13 (AvP).  A rated R Prometheus can only mean that Scott is being given the freedom to realize whatever vision he had for this film.

It would have been very easy to slap a PG-13 rating on this and bank on the extra ticket sales (especially considering the rumored hefty budget).  I applaud 20th Century Fox for having the testicular fortitude to make this decision, and will now block out the week surrounding June 8 in order to recover from my head exploding in anticipation.

CR Has Seen The Hunger Games!

The Cinema Recon Studios have been extremely busy as of late.  Now that we are back from Austin, TX, we have nearly 20 hours of content to pour over and prepare for pod-pressing.  As we have been mentioning through Tweets, FaceSpaces, and posts to the website, we have many excellent movie reviews and interviews with bands from the 2012 SXSW event!  Look for some very special CR podcasts to land on the internets very soon…

In the meantime, business is back to normal for us in terms of show scheduling.  You may have heard of a little film called The Hunger Games, yes?  Well, the film earned a paltry $155 million this weekend, which was enough to crown it the 3rd biggest weekend opening of all time.  You can count Jake, Cassie, and myself as contributors to that giant pile of money, and we have the newest episode of Cinema Recon to prove it!

In the latest and greatest episode, you will hear:

  • Our review of The Hunger Games, with Cassie returning as guest!
  • How Lionsgate is celebrating the huge success of its latest release
  • Why we can’t wait for Season 2 of Game of Thrones
  • Our thoughts on the TMNT-aliens-Michael Bay controversy
  • Why we can’t stop watching the newest Prometheus trailer
  • The questionable sounds of Paul’s new clipboard

Check back soon to stream or download the 3/25/12 show!!

This would be easier if 'American Woman' wasn't stuck in my head ... thanks Lenny

 


International Teaser Trailer for Prometheus!

While we don’t really see anything new here in comparison to the previously released teaser, I can’t help but post up the latest bit of Prometheus news.  The International teaser was just released and, yup, it still gives me chills:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

I honestly cannot remember the last time I have been more excited for a film.  The mystery swirling around this movie, the relation to the Alien universe, the fact that director Ridley Scott wants to “scare the living shit out of you“…it is just the right amount of hype to make someone like me go apeshit with anticipation.

Cinema Recon will be all over this when it releases on June 8, 2012, you can be damn sure of that!
