LEGION trailer... pretty damn intense looking...

Hey folks, Harry here with the first Internet footage from LEGION, which showed up at Myspace's Trailer Park. It is one of those, put in your birthdate and if you're not a fetus, you can see it - type of things. I missed the Comic Con footage from this, but at my hotel, every time I got in the elevator I had to stare at Paul Bettany's navel. He has a very tortured looking navel. Stretched and taut. I like my navel, which is kinda like the Sarlac Pit - things go in, but they never come out. Yoko doesn't like navels, but I'm pretty fond of them. Except Quint's. There's a tiny hairy man with a tooth coming out of his navel... That could be cool in a horror film, but not at a table when exposed around food. NIGHTMARES. Anyway, this film is directed by a first time director, Scott Stewart... who was a big deal with the visual effects house, The Orphanage - which did incredible work on films like SIN CITY, HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, THE HOST, SUPERMAN RETURNS, the last two PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and IRON MAN. He also was the Digital Mastering Consultant on JACKASS: THE MOVIE. Odd credit, that one. But here's the thing. The footage kind of rocks. I love Biblical Horror & Action. And I dig the elongated limb people demons. They're seven shades of badass. Here's the trailer:

    Harry, are you saying Quatto lives in Quint's navel?

    by YackBacker

    That is cool news! For the record, this trailer looks bad. But it could be THE PROPHECY redux, which would be good. But this lacks Elias Koteas, which is bad...

    Andy Davis' THE FUGITIVE should be shown in film schools across the country as your technically flawless modern thriller. I've seen that movie no less than 50 times. I saw it 6 times in the theater, even once for it's Oscars re-release. It's a completely well-balanced, tight production.

    by MetalMickey

    Also, does Dennis Quaid ever turn down work?

  • Aug. 12, 2009, 10:12 p.m. CST

    does Bettany EVER have a decent haircut?

    by BadMrWonka

    he's such a great and relaxed actor...but fuck, he always look like he walked out of a supercuts on Glendale followed by a huge cloud of weed smoke...<p>this could be decent, but it could be horrendous. have you ever seen a movie like this that was just OK? Constantine was the only one. they're either great, or fucking pathetically horrible.<p>and this LOOKs great, but that line about "I don't believe in god" "he doesn't believe in you either", just an inverse of a line that's been in like 3 apocalypse films.<p>not holding my breath, but Bettany gives this a certain amount of credibility...

    This is the worst edited trailer I've ever seen.

    by gnarwhal_evan

    Holy shit, this movie looks like trash and the trailer does a horrible job of covering that up. Was it me or did that trailer seem ten minutes long? I feel like I've seen this movie two times now. Jesus.

    The kid is supposed to be Christ 2.0, at least according to Wiki. And I'll watch this because of Bettany. I'll watch pretty much anything he's in. He's a cool and badass dude, and he's married to Jennifer Connelly. He deserves our respect.

    WHAT GENERIC SHIT, DEMON KNIGHT + THE SEVENTH SIGN + CONSTANTINE

    by CarlThorMark1978

    Fucking yawn. Could we maybe get back to making Horror movies with, you know, those old fashioned things like mood and atmosphere where the entire thing isn’t non-stop action and annoying characters who spout pithy one-liners? I wish we were getting 70’s style movies like Dawn of the Dead, Shivers and Phantasm etc.....

    Not sure how these things relate. Now... perhaps If I put pot in my navel and suck on my thumb, I'd find a new amazing way to be a human bong... but I've never tried that. <BR><BR>But seriously.

    GOD IS TRYING TO KILL SOME BITCH HE KNOCKED UP....

    by CarlThorMark1978

    It’s not like the old days when a woman would consider it a privilege to carry and give birth to a savior. When the kid gets older, and his mother learns that he is the son of God, she’ll be hitting up the Vatican for child support payments. This means that God would have to get off his worthless fucking ass and put some more work into appearing on toilets and slices of toast to sucker the punters into church so they can fork over some more cash so the church can make payments to this chick that he never even intended on getting pregnant. It was a complete accident because he didn’t pull out in time and there are no condoms or contraceptives that can withstand his Holy splooge. So it’s better to send his army of angles to kill the bitch and cut the kid from her stomach.

    WHY WOULD ANYONE WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN ANYWAY?

    by CarlThorMark1978

    What, you think that in Heaven, God is just going to let you do whatever the fuck you want? Like spend eternity living in a mansion on the coast of a beautiful white sand beach with crystal clear blue water, limitless booze, drugs and an endless supply of 16 year old cheerleaders? Ain’t gonna happen. Why the fuck would you want to go to Heaven anyway? What interesting people do you think are there? I’d rather go to Hell because, number one, I’ll get to be with the rest of my family and, number two, I’m sure that it would more fun then sitting on a cloud and playing a harp for eternity with a bunch of virginal losers.<br> <br>You think the Devil is going to roast you forever, for what, enjoying yourselves to the fullest extent that you could while trapped in a rotting piece of meat on a miserable little planet in the middle of nowhere filled with nothing but pain, suffering and despair as though any of that shit make you a better person or worthy in the eyes of some fuckstick deity? He put you on this planet to die and he is laughing at you because you clowns are the ultimate in reality TV for Him. Suckers.

    But the studio should have given the filmmakers a bigger budget. It actually appears that the director knew what they were doing...They just didn't have enough money for the CGI effects. Great cast though. And a couple moments look quite good.

    Kotisu, RELIGION, LIKE POLITICS, IS A TOOL OF CONTROL....

    by CarlThorMark1978

    Both are used by liars, thieves and murderers to gain wealth and power over the weak minded who are fearful of the future. You can’t face the uncertainty of what happens after we die so you put your blind faith into whatever fairytales give you the most comfort. Politics is the same in that you vote for whoever tells you what you want to hear. In both cases you always end up realizing, to late, that all that fear was a waste when you should have been living your life. Religion and Politics contains the worst of our society and all they ever do is try to make you afraid of everything so you will always need them.

    by D.Vader

    I value different opinions as long as they aren't shitting on mine or ones that are similar. <p> I just don't want you to think this entire site is shit bc some pple don't like Christians. I also want you to understand that Christianity isn't special (except to those that believe in it), and this is coming from a Catholic. <p> When religious topics come up, you're going to find there are many atheists here that don't care about Christians or the way they've hijacked the Republican party, and so they express some of their anger here. Terrible things are said here about EVERYONE, regardless of race, sex, or religion. But Christianity does seem to get a pass in the same way that making fun of white pple gets a pass- its the dominant majority. Making fun of a minority who has never had power is not exactly "right", bc you're kicking someone who is down. Making fun of someone who is on top is acceptable bc really, they're in power. Its much more acceptable. <p> I'm just saying to you that, if you plan to come here, be prepared to meet opinions you don't agree with. If you can accept that fact, that pple here WILL make fun of Christians (And I do it from time to time too), and if you can look past it and continue with the movie discussions, you'll enjoy yourself a whole lot more.

    There are some intelligent people on this talkback. Well said Vader.

  • I see where you are coming from, but what you call other people's opinions are more like the absolute worst and most offensive thing that could be possibly said. I can get along with Atheists or people of other religions all day long due to the simple fact that I would feel horrible saying anything as offensive about their beliefs as what is said about my religion on here sometimes. In fact, I totally agree with you and CarlThorMark about religion and politics and what not. But I blame the "evil" that has been done with both on mankind, not God. I still think that the original intent and message is a good thing - something worth believing in.

    The original intent and message IS a good thing and worth believing in. Its just been subverted SO heavily be humans with issues and agendas, that its hard for many people to be truly comfortable with a religious person and not think they're either a. someone that buys into the lies or b. someone who is close-minded to others. <p> For me, I didn't read anything that came close to hate-speech against christians here on this talkback. But then, I really did just scan it *extremely* quickly for anything interesting and so I probably skipped over it. <p> But then, that's what I do, I skip over it. People like that don't deserve attention; they say shit like that bc they crave it. And I won't help them indulge. So just carry on with the movie talk and we'll all be better for it =).

    by CarlThorMark1978

    I would truly love for there to be something beyond our physical world, where our spirits/souls/lifeforce is free to travel across the universe forever. Could there be some sort of higher form of consciousness behind what we perceive to be reality? Maybe. But we won’t know until we die and even if there is nothing after death, why would you worry when no one ever worries where they were before they were born.<br> <br>I don’t believe in any sort of religion what-so-ever because they are created by humans and it’s amazing that anyone could have the nerve to believe that they could even begin to comprehend the sort of being that could create our universe. Human arrogance sickens me but it is nothing compared to my hatred for those who prey on people who are afraid of dying and what lies beyond.<br> <br>But if you would like to save your soul from eternal damnation then please send $5 to William Shatner.

    by Kotisu

    I'm right with you on what mankind has done in the name of all religions - it's sick as shit and always has been. This also makes me angry, very often. But, I still believe in the idea that religion is a good thing at its center, and it often gives me a sense of hope. This is why I direct my anger at those people who distort religion and use it for power and tyranny. I don't hold my God accountable for the bullshit mankind does. It just seems that people tend to attack and try to destroy the core meaning of religion (in many cases Christiananity, but obviously not all) which is (I believe) a message of love, hope, and deliverance. It is true that many men of power have used religion to subvert the lives of innocent people. But I honestly don't believe Jesus Christ ever, ever, ever meant for this sort of thing to happen. The man was too busy trying to convince people to just love each other. So, why do people mock the man, say unbelievably vicious things about him, when they should be reserving those things for the corrupt people who have abused the original message? I hold my belief in JC dearly. I don't think that him, as a man and historical figure, deserves the hatred he gets. I think that hatred should be pointed at the men and women who corrupt his message, as well as all those who corrupt other religions' messages for their profit. Even Shatnerology.

    HELL, PROPHECY and ICP!

    by Wackyal123

    First off, Hell is supposed to be the absence of God's love. So if you believe in Heaven and Hell, in hell, you wouldn't get any comfort in God. This movie looks like the Prophecy which was great so I can't wait to see it (although Christopher Walken and Elias Koteas made that movie and you can't beat Viggo Mortensen for Satan). Personally, I want to see a Biblical Apocalypse movie done like that Insane Clown Posse track, where it's a normal family hearing stuff on TV and radio and gradually getting affected by it. The news reports would be dark!

Not to mention Adam Goldberg and Amanda Plummer as two awesome zombies, and Virginia Madsen can just sit there looking teh hotness for all I care... she's GORGEOUS.<P> Yep, THE PROPHECY is all kinds of fun.

At least get your fucking facts straight, atheists, before you start going on about how evil this religion (whose Golden Rule is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you") is. Christianity, like most religions, has done a lot more good than harm, and like with most other religions, only those few idiots that use it for harm EVER get talked about. And if you want to pick a fight with a religion that is REALLY causing unimaginable suffering RIGHT FUCKING NOW - go and have a go at the radicalised fundamnetalist Muslims who believe than stoning a 14 year old girl to death because her father complained that the village elders raped her is actually NORMAL.<P> But then, radicals tend to fight back. Better to go pick on a religion whose UK population is mainly made up of nice old ladys who do bake sales to mend the church roof. Real threat to your world views they are, you fucking coward atheists.<P> God, I hate this relentless fucking Christ-bashing. It's so pathetic, and the loudest anti-Christian voices are usually the fucking dumbest...

    Yeti - Myth No 1

    by spud mcspud

    Religion wasn't INVENTED as a means of control, it was invented as a means of the sceintifically uneducated for understanding the world they lived in. It was co-opted by the ruthless in order to subjugate the masses, true, but initially, it was intrinsically a good thing. It kick started the need to give meaning to the meaningless.<P> Blaming religion for the evil things perpetrated by power-hungry nutjobs using religion as a tool to do so is like saying that football causes violence, because there is always violence at football matches. No, nutjobs cause violence - they just use football teams as the means to divide themselves in order to have a tribe or group to fight FOR.<P> Religion is NOT evil. The people who use it as an excuse to attack those who do not belong to THEIR religion - they ARE evil. You'd be amazed how many people don't understand the distinction.

    Being vehemently opposed to religion is not a sign of intelligen

    by SoylentMean

    Many, if not most people who are religious do eventually come to a point in their lives where they make the decision, on their own, to keep their faith. <P> If you are raised in the faith of your parents and don't eventually question its validity, there might be some lack of intelligence on your part. But for anybody who holds to religion due to faith, well at some point there is doubt. Doubt is a tremendous part of faith.<P> If you personally don't believe in a religion and begrudge another for believing in said religion, well you're nothing more than a cunt.<P> I don't believe in a lot of religious ideologies but I accept that others do. What I don't accept is violence in the name of any faith.<P> Ever. <P> That's where the true line should be drawn.

    Re:

    by Cobbio

    spud mcspud, you wrote, "Christianity, like most religions, has done a lot more good than harm."<p> I think this point is debatable. Depending on your definition of what's "good" and "bad," this notion could go either way. Like religion in general, people take out of it what they want. Therefore there is no absolute truth, therefore there is no specific overarching entity or entities looking down or interacting with us. It's simply whatever individuals want to believe, and since humans are tremendously susceptible to the power of suggestion, religion as a binding social force, not truth, comes into being.<p> But when you rationally (meaning scientifically, meaning independently verifying the repeatability of results) consider the facts, the illusion of it falls apart. By definition, then, religious belief is irrational.<p> Furthermore, neurobiologists working independently in two countries in 2006 and 2007 mapped stimulation points in the human brain, attempting to narrow down pleasure points based on the participants' beliefs. What both studies found, independently of each other, was that people who believe in a supernatural entity elicit the same neurological response as someone with a close friend, spouse, or lover. Which is expected, given the stimuli.<p> What the studies also found, however, was that the "addiction" centers, meaning the neurological centers overstimulated in alcoholics and heroin addicts by the objects their affections, were stimulated in the EXACT same way in religious believers. By this, I mean, people who before the studies stated they believed in God.<p> Thus one of the things the studies concluded, neurologically speaking, was that belief in a supernatural entity, namely God, is by any definition, an addiction. It provides a feeling of love and closeness to people, even when the object of that closeness doesn't exist.<p> So, getting back to your point, mcspud, maybe religion HAS done a lot more harm than good?<p> Aside from all that, though, this film looks pretty intense. I may just go see it.

    by spud mcspud

    Interesting points, but how can something which creates a feeling of love or closeness to people who may not actualy be there be more harm than good?<P> I think many people on here that hate Christianity are people who can't accept that some people need a crutch of some kind to get them through life. Others need to believe in a reason for existence, still others want a deity to be able to express their gratitude to. All of these, on the face of it, do seem more good than bad. The impulse, however, by atheists to bring down these people seems to be the same one as those twats wearing T-shirts that said "Dumbledore dies on page XXX" on the day HALF-BLOOD PRINCE was released in book form. They're just mean-spirited bastards who want to shit on the beliefs of others if they have no beliefs themselves. It's a form of control too: make EVERYONE believe what they believe, which is that religion is false and that there is no God.<P> Can't we all just get along???

    I'm getting to old for geekdom, but I couldn't even finish watching that "trailer." The long limb creature is cool, but the concept is meaningless and PB looks miscast. Why won't someone tell these directors that if the CGI completely ruins a scene (grandma on ceiling) then going with practical effects is going to be more effective. I hate when they punch up the soundtrack all kinds of crazy because the digital effects are so laughable. Honestly, Feast was a more effective "last stand" concept than this.

    You make some good points, too, mcspud. I'm an atheist, yes, but I also understand why religion is important to people. In its own way it brings a sense of community and purpose to groups of people. I acknowledge this, which is why I'm generally quiet about my beliefs. I don't push them on people.<p> I also don't "hate" Christianity or Islam. I have friends in both camps, and I'm very cool with them and their beliefs.<p> But that doesn't mean I'm going to capitulate. If someone asks me my honest opinion on things, I'll explain why, exactly, I don't believe in God or, along the same lines, pseudo science.<p> Basically, my beliefs revolve around finding evidence to support them. It's not something I ask other people to do, and I'm generally cool with whatever others need to find meaning in their lives. Because that's the big question, isn't it? Meaning?<p> I say find meaning in what exists, rather than what doesn't.<p> But that's me. You're welcome to your beliefs.

    McSpud

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    Good points and as an atheist I am not really bothered with some people needing an imaginary friend, whatever they call this friend, a crutch. <p> If it remained a personal belief and issue it would not be a problem for me as a humanist, but unfortunately around the world today it is far from personal. We have the extremes of the Taliban or Saudi Arabia, but even in relatively secular (government) Western nations we have people unwilling to consider alternatives or debate issues as they quote from a very old book. Sam Harris in A Letter to a Christian Nation explores this much more eloquently than I could ever hope to write and I strongly reccomend this quick read. For the repression in the more extreme Islam try Ayan Hrsi Ali's Infidel.

    Hollywood and the Bible

    by Jeditemple

    So, has anyone in Hollywood actually READ through the Bible or do they just flip through a couple of pages and pull out a couple of ideas that don't even go together??? I don't mind these kinds of movies being made, but come on!!! Hollywood could make religious movies that make sense, but instead they get some jackass writer to throw this crap together into a totally ridiculous storyline. It's the same thing that happened in The Seventh Sign, The Final Conflict, The Prophecy series, and End of Days (and I could go on and on). Nobody does any research to make these movies believable or accurate. Regarding the second coming, it says that Jesus will descend from the sky, not be born out of a woman again. This "save the baby" plot has been around for too long and it's heavily overused. And so has the "Gabriel is an evil angel" crap. And these writers can't even quote the Bible correctly and get the prophecies right. It's not that hard, folks. The book has been around for a long time, so they need to quit ripping out random pages and gluing them into a dumb story like this movie. Ugh.

    I can't believe anyone still pulls the "prove there's NOT an invisible rabbit standing next to me!" strategy.

    by MattmanReturns

    Nice try, but baby pigeons have been proven to exist. If you bother to seek them out, you'll find them. And you can prove to someone else they exist by actually showing them as well, not simply "I saw them, but I can't show you" as is often the case with people who claim to have seen God. I'm not saying God doesn't exist, I'm simply saying it's not up to someone who doesn't believe to disprove it. It's a feeble argument. You can't disprove something there is no evidence for. You can't disprove leprichauns. You can't disprove the easter bunny. You can't disprove santa claus. And before you say anything, explain to me why any of those are more ridiculous than the idea of a man in the sky that created all life on earth (and for some reason left us with tailbones)?

    Pychotic Old Lady made me laugh, but it's derivative.

    by ToMonicker

    The Trailer is too long, gives too much away, and spoils probably the best laughs, ie, the old lady, but I suppose since the crazy old lady attack was already used this year in Drag Me To Hell, why not? The Prophecy films were mostly fun, trashy B-to-C grade films with the definite plus of Chris Walken! This has a decent enough cast but does the story have enough to fuel something? I mean when you look at the overhead shot of an encircling army, you got to wonder, how can such a shabby dinner be even an Alamo grade fortress against that horde? Huh? If everyone outside picked up a goodsized rock, they'd probably be able to bury that place! Wasn't there a comic or something that had this set up or notion that God and the Devil traded off roles every once in the while? Am I making that up? Heck, so long as I never see a shitty Good Omens adaption, I'll be happy.

    Please, for the love of God if you're making a movie with Angels in it please stop using that incredibly cliched shot of the shadow of the Angel sprouting wings. Oh, and also, just stop making Angel movies altogether. Christian dogma is just about the most convoluted and boring subject matter you can possibly base a movie on.

    by spud mcspud

    Many thanks for that. As a Christian with some serious flaws in my belief system (it's hard to leave a Christian upbringing out in the cold when you're more agnostic than believer, because it's kind of become a part of who you are), I do get fed up of hearing how awful the Christians are, and then having people go on about stuff like the Spanish Inquisition or whatever that happened hundreds of years ago. When was the last major Christian-led massacre? You can argue that fuckers like Pat Robertson (American evangelist, very rich, very fat) who bankroll the Israeli occupation of Palestine are contributing to war and destruction, but not exactly leading a Christian army into battle or starting wars. Not that this excuses Robertson or those like him - but radicalised Islam (which I do acknowledge isn't the majority - the majority of Muslims in the Western world seem to be moderate) is the most militarised religious threat to peace and stabilisation these days. Yet you don't often hear people going on about what a blight on society Islam is because it creates radicals - and you REALLY don't hear many people saying they'd do terrible things to these radicals, probably due to fear of reprisals or whatever. LEGION is just yet another movie that I find tiresome but that really just tries to gain some kudos from pressing the buttons of those Christians who might actually be offended by such blasphemous concepts.<P> Long story short - shit like this gets made because you don't feel afraid of being physically attacked by Christians when making such theologically retarded garbage like this. If the people who made this movie went out and made the movie version of the novel JEWEL OF MEDINA, though, theaters would get destroyed the length and breadth of the US and UK. There's a major misjudgment going on here, and it pisses me off.<P> That said, I'll at least give this a spin on DVD. Looks too damn confuising and just plain shit (who else wanted Brendan Fraser to pop that angel one in his lengthening CGI gob??) to be worthy of my £6 on a big screen.

    The Church of England is nice BECAUSE it's not religious

    by Sepulchrave

    The better a religion behaves, the weaker it gets in its faith. Islam is violent and evangelistic because it's popular, powerful and young as a faith. Strong religion is evangelical, violent, exclusionary, intolerant and dumb. The more rational a religion gets, the weaker it gats; Anglicanism is just a social club with a few bishops thrown it. Religion is FORCED to be nice by things like a PROPER SYSTEM OF MORAL JUSTICE, which invariably proscribes its nastiest excesses, like murder and mutilation. The best religion is one with no beliefs that cannot be challenged and undermined by evidence and experience. Which is another word for reason. Oh and Christ was a minor political opportunist, trained as a leader by John the Baptist, his political mentor. The rest is just myth-making. Notice how often the Romans are mentioned in the New Testament. Like, three times. It's like writing about Germany in 1938 and not mentioning the Nazis. Why? POLTICAL EXPEDIENCY. The writers of the Bible didn't want it to be censored or even noticed by the authorities. And that, my friends, it the thought processes of political men, not God.

    Spud McSpud, I think "shit like this gets made" because....

    Not because the filmmakers aren't afraid of being attacked by Christians and whatnot. I think films like this get made bc the filmmakers treat the material as if its a myth, and thus the story has mythic qualities. Which I think is cool; its what makes these stories epic. <p> You can't expect films like this to be "true to the Bible" or even "realistic" in that sense, because the filmmakers are playing with the story in a different way. They are taking elements from the Christian myth and using it to create a new story. I've got no problem with that, just as I have no problem with someone taking one of the Aztec myths and making a monster movie about Quetzalcoatyl being a giant fucking dragon that wakes up at attacks NYC.

    It's not religion that has nastier excesses such as mutilation and murder - it's HUMAN NATURE that has those. Religion is one of a gazillion things that humans use to create division amongst themselves so they can align with a particular tribe, or faith, or football club, or fandom, and thus make war on other tribes / faiths / clubs etc that are different to theirs.<P> Religion doesn't make men evil. Religion gives evil men one more reason to commit atrocities. The evil was within the men to being with, NOT the religion. In the Christian sense, you only have to see how Paul (who used to be Saul until his conversion on the road to Damascus) twisted the previously fairly peaceful creed of Jesus Christ into a political movement that was all about the murder and eventual overthrow of the Romans. That's the most obvious recorded example of a faith being twisted to suit a psychopath's ideals in the Bible.<P> Religion ain't evil. Men are evil, and religion gives them a reason to act on their evil. You can't fight human nature.
