Ain't It Cool News (
Movie News

So you run a paper stand and you're desperately curious which truck will deliver THE DAILY PLANET' Wonder no more!

Hey folks, Harry here... the following picture fills me with glee. I mean it. There's something awesome about seeing a DAILY PLANET truck. It's like the joy I had seeing the Daily Bugle masthead from the first SPIDER-MAN. It's just something warm and friendly. I'm sure we'll get a ton of this from Bryan's Blog on BlueTights.Net along with all those wonderful video diaries! Here ya go...

For the rest - here's Ian...


Whilst this is not exactly during-filming stuff, on Friday afternoon (Australian time) I did get a jolly good chance to take some seriously clear pics (2272x1704px) of some of the vehicles from the Metropolis street/train station/hospital scenes being shot in Sydney this weekend. You see I work just above the street where they were parking all of the cars on Friday and I took some pictures.

The pics are all hosted on my website right now. Feel free to use any of them on your site or link to them.

    What the fuck is it with people using this word? Are these retards who are trying to sound smart, but instead reveal themselves as idiots? As for the truck, damn you people are hard-up for Supes news. Yawn.

    I like the people who complain about the complainers.

    And the people who post completely off topic (for example, writing a bit about the "Ep: III" score in a "Superman" TB). There is a word for that kind of thing, too. Prob'ly a couple words. In a row.

    by El Che

    You're right Orionsangels, they'll never top that magic. John William's score was, and is, the quintessential superhero theme. All that follows will simply be judged against the standard set in '78.

    Listen, I'm sorry. I must have pushed your sensitive Daily-Planet-truck-photo button. Can we resolve this with a spit and shake? Or do we need to call each other assholes to keep on with the polluting of this TB? Lord knows that there are more important issues at hand, such as whether or not Bosworth will be wearing a colored contact in her freak eye.

    As my co-worker Mark said...

    by Terry_1978

    "Who the fuck posts at a message board topic they hate or don't think is neccessary just to let it be known they hate the topic or don't think it's neccessary? All they're doing is just adding to the thing they hate." In other words, if you think stuff like Daily Planet trucks and pictures of the Baxter Building are pointless, yet you respond to it, you're not really proving your point.

  • April 10, 2005, 1:02 a.m. CST

    And who could argue with your co-worker Mark?

    by SmarkJobber

    I certainly look up to him and his philosophy on message board etiquette. As for my point, I don't have one, and never set out to prove one.

    Complaining about the people who complain about the complainers

    by Reverendz

    I don't really have anything to add, I just wanted to type that out :-)

  • ...before you get all high and mighty, can I say that I just don't understand people who complain about this shit? Okay, so it's a slow news day, but whose fault is that? And yet all the sarcasm and bile in the world is poured into these posts which are supposed to be about indifference (I guess). Why? Because other sites can do better, maybe? Because AICN can do better, maybe? How the fuck do you know that? The people who bitch about "slow news days" seem like rebels without a cause.

    Ep III Score Again

    by The Thinker

    Wow. Williams will be nominated for an Academy Award again. I forget if it's track 12 or 13, but when he breaks out the chorus again ... goddamn. The soundtrack is like the Black Sabbath or NIN of Star Wars scores.

    Just wondering, will the new score be done by John Williams? Will it be the original theme? I hope its not some Danny Elfman bullshit!

    Puff pieces Ain't Cool, Brother!

    by mbaker

    I thought this was 'Ain't It Cool News', not 'Ain't It Fluff News'. And speaking of fluff, you know the superhero gerne has been made into a mockery when some entertainment rag dose his worst 'Look maw, i'm Superman' bit at the end of his piece! People like that need to be run over by a truck! They think that their little publicity gimmick will bring the gerne into the mainstream when in reality, it's makes the gerne more silly than it already is. Generating the exact oppisite of it's original intent.

    childhood raped again - by a truck!

    by vicious_bastard

    This truck fills me with rage and despair. It is too different from the trucks in the original. Fuck it, I'm not going to bother seeing the movie at all now. Not unless they reshoot all the scenes featuring this lame-assed truck. Marvel movies always have cool trucks in them. When will these morons learn?

    I hope WB develops a "DC Films" logo ...

    by Zauriel

    If they were smart (which they're not, but they're getting there with Batman Begins and Superman Returns, compared to utter crap like Catwoman), then WB would create a DC Films intro to its superhero properties, just like Marvel Films has. WB might then realize that people who end up liking the film but have never collected comics (or haven't in a while) may decide to step into a comic book store to check out some DC titles. Ah, but I'm dreaming ...

    KAWS: troll extraordinaire

    by Ribbons

    First of all, 'King Kong' and 'Superman Returns' are completely unrelated. Second of all, they aren't even scheduled for release in the same calendar year. Third of all, you're comparing movies why? While I'm thrilled that Kong's blogs are "pure greatness," their quality has no bearing on anything related to 'Superman Returns.' "You know this to be true," and I also think that you'd be better off if you removed yourself from the preproduction process and allowed your urge for competition to manifest itself in something more appropriate like sports or politics.

    by Kid Z

    ...a photo of the aftermath of a crash involving the Daily Planet truck and the "truck scoop" of a few years back, namely the Daily Bugle truck from Spider-Man! Better yet a film! "Daily Planet Truck Vs. Daily Bugle Truck: Truck Crash!" The trucks meet each other and, mistaking each other for villainous trucks, get into a no-holds-barred demolition derby before coming to terms and teaming up against the real villain, TruckZilla! Of course the studios'll probably let Paul W. S. Anderson direct... and it'll suck!

    by milkybar

    this post has become the sexiest tomboy beanpole of a thread on the planet... seriously, any concerns about this site going down hill got saved by this thread - it's worth visiting to see in what surreal direction the TBers are going to take the latest scoop to be published... btw, if Bugle Truck went up against Planet Truck, would they relocate it to Miami and have Truckzilla played by John Travolta?

    Truck Me Walking!

    by the Spyman

    Here's a scene from SuperTruck.. The driver of the SUPERTRUCK was heading down the highway when he saw a priest at the side of the road. Feeling it was his duty, he stopped to give the priest a ride. A short time later, he saw a lawyer with a briefcase on the side of the road and aimed his truck at him. At the last second, he thought of the priest with him and realized he couldn't run over the lawyer, so he swerved, but he heard a thump anyway. Looking back as he drove on, he didn't see anything. He began to apologize for his behavior to the priest. "I'm sorry, Father. I barely missed that lawyer at the side of the road." But the priest said, "Don't worry, son. I got him with my door." That is our opener, it should bring in major ticket sales.
