Some snuck PREDATORS pics have leaked onto the web!

Published at: Jan. 18, 2010, 5:55 p.m. CST by headgeek

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some pictures from the Nimrod Antal directed, Robert Rodriguez-produced reboot/sequel PREDATORS. I've seen some things from this movie that would make your geek brain explode... it did mine, at least, but I have no idea when I can go into that in any detail. A ton of snuck shots have leaked online and I imagine they'll disappear really damn quickly, but for those early risers this Saturday morning, here are a few stills courtesy of the forums of AVP Galaxy. There are a ton of pics on the boards (make sure to click here or on any of the pics below to see them all)and I've picked a few to post here. There might be some spoilery stuff there, but also some super cool shit, too. REMOVED BY REQUEST OF STUDIO. Suits, sets and gore... Lookin' good, yeah? -Quint quint@aintitcool.com Follow Me On Twitter

    Looking at the available photos it appears they've made no attempt to make the predators any taller than an average guy like they were in the original.

    by Money_Clip

    You're right about the first movie. It kicked ass and so did its future gubernatorial cast. I enjoyed the second one though, for what it was. AVP was dog shit with that one retarded shot of the main chick and the predator running in slo-mo together away from the explosion. But AVP Requium was bad ass...and creative in a lot of the ways the predator killed.

    Brody doesn't look anorexic in the shot

    by Miyamoto_Musashi

    he has bulked up to just look weedy. <p> Everytime I see his name associated with Predators, I am convinced the casting guys were actually stoned at the time of his casting and were probably dared to cast him. <p> Can you imagine Arnie in the Pianist

    This movie may well rock out worlds! But does it follow on from the original, is Predator 2 still canon? Either way it'll knock AvP out of the park!

    Looks cool Rodriguez and Anal, get that ARNOLD cameo

    by ABking

    So far so good. Now could you guys just get ARNOLD for the cameo. Do it Nemoy style like STAR TREK and give Arnie anything he wants to say yes!

  • Jan. 16, 2010, 9:40 a.m. CST

    It's sad but this movie will fail at the box office, only geeks who follow production will go see this, other people will remember the disasters the last AVP were and won't even consider seeing this... sad but true

    Could have some unexpected McTwists.

    by I_Snake_Plissken

    Looks like the tip of ol’ painless is sticking up into the last photo. One thing that confuses me is who is the “Brand X” guy and what purpose does he serve on the commando team? My guess is he’s a specialist member of a radical assault team. While the other guys distract the predators with gunfire, he takes them out with a series of gnarly air maneuvers, riding a bladed, missile firing skateboard. You would think that for practical purposes (in terms of camouflage) he wouldn’t want to be facing off against predators with a giant “X” on his back, but maybe…..just maybe….he’s just that good.

    The Predator heads look oversized

    by photoboy

    Is it me or do the heads of the Predators all look too big for their bodies? I don't remember that problem in the first two films (I couldn't give a fuck about the AvP ones). They remind me of the Nimon on Doctor Who...<br /><br /> Maybe it's just for the scene where they take their helmets off and so they need to be bigger to accommodate the other mask underneath that they wouldn't normally be wearing.

    I read the script to this. Do not get your hopes up.

    by The Gospel According to Bastardface

    It's a remake of Predator with Predator dogs and a Predator Birds and King Predators and Black King Predators and Arnie turning up at the end saying as emperor of all predators to say, "You did good, kid."<p> Really forgettable and flat. Reads like a videogame.

    by m_reporter

    First of all, those are shots taken from a set from a shitty camera. Not what they're shooting with. So you can't judge the quality of the look of the final film from these pictures.<p> Second, you guys know that Tom Cruise is a midget, right? Then how comes he always looks average high in his movies? Oh yeah, because they use camera tricks (and appleboxes) to make him look appear taller. A low angle shot can make a mountain out of a man. You guys ever asked yourself how they made Frodo and the other look so small in Lord of the Rings? Well it wasn't CGI fellas, look up "forced perspective" on Wikipedia, might learn something....

    by REVENGE_of_FETT

    I like a lot of Rodriguez's stuff, particularly From Dusk Till Dawn, but everything about these pics makes them look bad. The predators are shrimpy with big heads and high heels and the sets look like a high school play. I know they can make stuff look cool on film so I'm hoping that's the case but these pics diminish my expectations.

    by Zardozap2005

    When was the last time someone brought a Minigun to a Preadator movie? The original Predator I believe. I still have doubts about Brody's effectivness, especially after King Crap, but I have hope.

  • Jan. 16, 2010, 11:54 a.m. CST

    Looks REALLY Cheap

    by RefutetheHype

    La Chintz! Has NONE of the flavor nor feel of the original PREDATOR in these shots, where even the stuff in STARLOG before the movie came out looked scary and interesting, and the magazine ran a full-page pic of the PREDATOR at the beginning of the article and you just wanted to run away in actual fear. Least, i did when my sister showed me her precious STARLOG collection issue. I remember it vividly, though. This, however, looks rancid. It looks SYFY-Channel. And talk of PREDABIRDS and PREDADOG means it's being marketed for toys and will be definitely PG-13. Expect the article soon: "I just got a call from Robert Fuckin' Rodriguez on my new Blackberry Pearl (www.amazon.com193843849349359) and he guarantees a hard R but even if it's PG13 it will be A HARD PG13!"

    Predators are gay now?

    by SenorChangIsDead

    Seriously, that 2nd pic is awful. The middle one looks like he's in high heels. They're heads are too big. They're too short. Their legs while tone, are skinny as hell like they prefer using the thighmaster to doing 1000 pound leg presses. These guys are not threatening at all. Predators are supposed to be BAD ASS, a one man fucking army. That's why the original movie was so great. The predator was a solitary killing machine. Putting a bunch of weak ass Predators together as a team dilutes their menace and power. Rodriguez, I realize you wanted to channel "Aliens" for this movie, but it's going to SUUUUCCCCCKKKK, man. This weak attempt at a Predator movie won't even come close to Cameron's greatness. You should have just left this alone and let someone else attempt a Predator movie.

    Bodry AND Tohper Grace? Geeze. We'll see. Brody did not work as a heroic, romantic lead in King Kong, so we'll see if this works.

    The problem with those pred suits..

    by Rameses

    isn't big heads .The original in his mask had a strangely enlarged bonce {baby big head}.It's the proportion of their bodies.Kevin Hall in pred 1 had very long arms and legs plus , a long midsection from chest to groin.Even with the foam rubber build up he still looked very elegant, and disguised the man in a suit look .These guys have short arms and legs, making them look stumpy and over weight .they might actually be pretty tall , but their big headed proportions , give a midgety look. This lack of arm and waist lengh , is also the main reason that the alien suits that woodruff wore from Aliens on just don't look right.The centre pred isn't in high heels , your seeing the spiked claw they all have on the back of their feet

    by HEADGEEK

    PREDATORS were at least 6'10" - that picture was taken from a high angle looking down at them, with things built to scale to the Predators. Don't worry, PREDATORS are plenty big.

    Predator 2

    by Rameses

    Managed to put together a load of superb predators for it's final scenes , all of them were as good as the first films pred .why can't they seem to do shit now , that Stan Winstone and co pulled off 20 years ago?

    by celsus

    clearly another try to make some money, but less clever than Lucas. A Predator looks is 7' 2½" high, 2nd shot looks like a fan made gay helloween party. R.I.P: Predator. Just like Robocop there is just _one_ Robocop and _one Predator, ok, sequels were fine either but the rest was a travesty. Just like this one here..

    How does this look 'horrible' when these are set pics?

    by blakindigo

    Nothing, and I do mean NOTHING is shown in context. These aren't frames from the movie, just pictures from around the set. I just looked at some behind the scenes pictures from "Star Wars" and they don't really capture the films power. Shouldn't we see some actual footage before judging how this film looks?

    Dude, did you just call AvP: Rectum "bad ass"? That movie was so awful it made the first AvP look like The Empire Strikes Back. There is not one single redeemable feature in AvP:R -- none. Watching that movie actually made me want to visit real violence upon the makers of that shitburger. AvP:R is a perfect example of EVERYTHING that's wrong with genre movies today.

    by kevred

    Maybe there's so much dislike here because what we're being shown is dislikable, and/or simply bad. These are crappy sets, drab costumes, and tired throwbacks to the original film, and the entire film is just some after-the-fact digging up of someone else's ideas, someone else's franchise, extending it into areas that no one was really asking for to begin with.<p>Maybe if more filmmakers and studios today thought that imagination and creativity meant more than just which old film you picked to remake/re-imagine, there'd be more enthusiasm and support.

When the first pics from AvP:R showed up they looked awesome, yet the film was a dented bucket of cinematic vomit. <p> If I didn't know any better I'd say you "movie geeks" had never heard of lighting, framing, editing or post-production.

    I love the whiners. They are probably the same ones who have complained for years that Predator2, the shit film that it was, was nothing like the first one. Then probably bitched about AvP, Avp:R being nothing like the first one. Only to come here and bitch about the new film because they are using some ideas from the first film, and how stupid/lame they are now. It's amazing how cell phone pics are suddenly such an effective way to judge a film as to how it looks. The images are low-res,small and soft looking. Morons.

    Calling someone a "hater" is not a counterargument. It's just whining, from guys who are too whiny to even have opinions of their own.<p>No Star Wars set, thirty years ago, looked as bad as this. The Star Wars films drew from influences but created something really fresh and exciting. This Predators crap is just saying, "hey, look, we can make some money off of someone else's 25-year-old idea! They did all the work, now we can score form it!"<p>If this cast and this director were making something as original and bold as Predator was in its day, I'd be applauding.

    I will defend Tyler's score for AvP:R forever, if necessary. Tyler's score is incredible. He managed to seamlessly meld elements from all of the prior scores into a coherent whole. To be absolutely clear, he used music from composers as disparate as Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Elliot Goldenthal, John Frizzell, and Alan Silvestri. That takes some fucking talent.

    Cobra and the "mustn't grumble" folks...

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...but, in the end, isn't what Cobra-Kai posed the question? Should real film geeks watch a movie before judging it crap or is it too late by then? <p> Is it being a completist that makes you a film geek (or any kind of geek, I guess)? Is the movie whore who hated the first three Saw movies but kept grimly soldiering on, not in expectation that the next ones would be better but with just the determination that there might be something worth seeing and therefore it would be seen, that in order to render a full and valid opinion on that regurgitation of a franchise every last moment would have to be watched more of a movie geek than the one who checked out after Cary Elwes farted his way through the first? <p> Or if something has been horrible, either a franchise or a creator, and it seems likely their future work will be no better, is it the responsibility of a real movie geek to NOT see it so as not to put more pennies in the pocket of the folks doing the substandard work? <p> Now I've got no problem with anyone expressing an opinion about something before they've seen it. That's part of the fun, and people were doing it long before there was an internet to do it on. They did it in the pages of movie magazines and at the counters of comic book stores, theaters and video outlets. They did it on playgrounds and in university lounges and...well you get the idea. And I've expressed plenty of opinions, both positive and negative, about movies I hadn't yet seen, that ended up being absolutely wrong. <p> To me a real movie geek is a little bit of column A and column B. They give everything a chance, charge up the cinematic hill that is Zombie 5 or Jason Takes Manhattan even after all the negative reinforcement it would take any learning creature to conclude they were something to be avoided. In fact, they seek out movies that any even marginally functioning "normal" person would recognize immediately as something to be avoided. Five Across the Eyes, Zombies, Zombies, Zombies, the worst direct to video fare even the Germans can offer. And they also bitch about and praise movies completely out of proportion to their merits, before they've seen them, after they've seen them, and under the right circumstances while they're seeing them. The ultimate sanction for them is to not watch the movie in the theaters. An exception can be made, of course, for those very rare cases where their childhood has been authentically raped. <p> And they have arguments, just like the one you're having now. <p> Carry on.

    I agree Ned

    by robbles

    My problem is people having venemous, bile inducing hatred for a film that is still shooting. Being wrong about something you were skeptical about is one thing but when the hate reaches a certain level for a movie you've never seen, is it still even possible to even enjoy it anymore? I love arguing movies but sometimes on here it's like you're debating a fanatic. Not that I'm trying to take away from other people getting childhoods raped and whatnot.

  • Jan. 16, 2010, 7:40 p.m. CST

    And sorry...

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...for spoiling the climax of the movie. Brody is cornered with a couple other survivors. As the predators close in he uses the only weapon he has left, a length of piano wire, to garrote off his nose. Robbed of their prize the predators depart as a noseless Brody collapses. <p> There's a stinger, though. Brody wakes up in the hospital where a smiling doctor tells him they were able to preserve his nose until it could be surgically reattached. Brody tries to claw it off and orderlies put him in restraints. As they leave his room a predator shifts into view by the curtains. <p> True fact. JettL showed me the pages while he was doing the rewrite. <p> In a dream.

    ...yeah, but I thin a lot of that, for any movie, is just dramatic overstatement. <p> And a smaller, but not insignificant part of it is just people deliberately screwing with folks who might like the film. I don't think that's so much the case in this talkback, but in those Avatar talkbacks the later was just rampant. <p> I say you state what your opinion is and don't worry about it much. If you see someone post something worth arguing about and they seem worth arguing with have at it. <p> And in those cases where someone just flat out hits your button, post something that just points at 'em and laughs. It'll make them madder than they made you. <p> Come on, is there really anything anyone could say about some on set snapshots that would make any reasonable person decide to not watch the movie. <p> This is reading tea leaves, and you wouldn't go back to a gypsy who told you things would probably be all right, but you'd have apply yourself, eat right and be nice to people, and there was still a chance, though so remarkably small you should never count on it, that a safe might fall on you or you'd win the lottery.

LAB: DAY <p> Camera is low to the ground, following the wheels of a surplus military cart. All around boxes of UNOBTANIUM are lying around, marked with a vulture insignia. <p> "The names vulture" says a bald headed man, bending over a box of unobtanium and pulling out a few kilos for use in his vulture suit. <p> "Soon, vultress will be free" <p> Camera slowly zooms away as we go through a window out into the city and realize his headquarters is built right in the Wayne Water facility, IN THE MIDDLE OF THE CITY. But then we zoom right back in, and see a crazy spider on the window sill of the vultures lab, escaping. <p> Camera follows spider as it's taken away by the gusts of wind far above the city streets, and is gusted over the the local highschool, into the mes bathroom ventalation system <p> We hear Peter jacking his peter in the stall, but we can't see much. Camera focus in on the shadow of Peter releasing, whilst simultaneously having a spider lower it's self upon him. <p> Close up of spider biting arm, parker goes down. <p> tbc..........

New York, prepare!" <p> We see Vulture busting out of his building window, sending dozens more radioactive spiders into the city accidentally, do to his bumbling hispanic cleaning lady always leaving the spider jar in whacky fucking areas (directors blurb: this is to set up 5PID3RM3N). VUlture sets his sites on New York preparatory academy. <p> "A fire at the school will distract the police, giving me the time I need to bust carnage out of his AVATAR chamber." <p> The camera shakes wildly as Vulture unleashes his load all over the school, the full load out of weapons and missles blowing up the school in all areas, kids getting squished by rubble. <p> <p> <p> tbc....

Bill Paxton, Danny Glover, Ruben Blades, Mary Conchito Alonso, Gary Fucking Busey, Morton Downey, heck I'll even give it Adam Baldwin.... ,p> AVP and AVP:R are absolute atrocities that defame and cheapen two legendary franchises. <p> Please don't make another Predator movie that I cannot watch more than once.

    The way Salvation should have went....

    by nrn

    It should have started immediately from the end of T3, the nukes had gone off and him and Kate were in the bunker, fast forward 8 years or so and they are back on the surface, scouring for useful things when they come across something: Skynet's Time Lab. Knowing what has to be done Connor then goes on a recruitment mission to find Kyle Reese, however when he does he discovers he is still just a young teen (as his mother told him he would be). Meanwhile the T800s are being built early, and instead of them finding out the T800s are unleashed upon whats left of the human population. Marcus Wright then emerges with the T800s and shows that hes human when he single handedly saves John and Reese from a squad of T800s. He doesn't know his purpose or why he is there, but by the end of the movie it becomes clear. Sky Net's Time Lab cannot be ran by machines. They need a human counterpart in order to run equations that computers think are untrue. As all this is going on John and Kyle have developed the signal which temporarily halts all machine function like a Sonic EMP. Arnold Makes and appearance and it shows Skynet sending the first T800 back into the past. The movie ends with John telling Kyle what he has to do, before vanishing as the Terminator in the past accomplished his goal - He killed Sarah Connor. 6 More years pass before Reese is finally able to break into the Timelab, he finds out what coordinates the terminator was sent to, and thru the help of Marcus is himself sent back into the past. The movie ends with Connor re-appearing as though nothing had ever happened to him, only this time he has a whole new set of memories thanks to the time line changes. The movie ends fading out on a naked Connor as he re-appears through a time bubble. Paving the way for : Terminator - The Time Wars.

    AVP Movies Get a Bad Rap

    by Autodidact

    The first one is disappointing for the stupid "shifting pyramid" concept that seemed to me like it was designed expressly to keep set builders employed. But if you just look at the alien and predator stuff, they did a really good job. Design, rendering, costumes, fight choreography, etc. are all pretty great. And at the end, the predator neutralizes the acid inside an alien skull carapace and gives it to the human woman for a rather cool looking shield. That was a great nod to the original AVP comics series. <p>The second AVP is undeniably shitty as a movie, but it's so fucking CRUEL to the human characters that it too has earned my respect. Every single death is just NASTY and/or would at least be meaningful if the director could make you give a shit about the characters. But seriously, with the improved picture on home video (it's brighter than in theatres), I don't see why this movie gets such intense hatred. <p>I know I plan to rewatch AVP:R at some time in the future. Can't say that for most of the movies I have seen in the two years since it came out. I'm not saying it's good, just that it's good if you're a fan of aliens and predators just killing the living fuck out of people.

Can't agree with the people who hate it more. <p> But if it had been the same movie with the same cast and the same stupid things going on but with vaguely different creature designs and titled Hunting Ground or Food Chain...it would have been an okay bit of late night action/horror crap. I mean there were a couple decent set pieces in it that would have been reasonably enjoyable if you weren't aware they were watering and dumbing down to unbearable proportions one great and one okay movie monster.

    by Bouncy X

    i must have gotten a crappy copy because i still have to raise the brightness level to watch. and as for the "high heels" comments, all three have extension heels on their feet, its probably to make them even taller. and i'm sure those are used for shots where the feet aren't visible.

    It's still a dark movie, but it's much brighter than it was in theatres. I remember in the theatre, there were multiple scenes where I literally could not tell what the fuck was supposed to be happening. Especially towards the end, in the rain. <p>And seriously you gotta give AVP:R credit for being absolutely merciless towards the characters. I also want to say the directors show promise. Not with direction of actors so much, but with the shooting of action. Their style is so direct and doesn't use show "pose and strike" gayness that infects so many big movies.

    by UGG

    ...really shows how bad those guys were. Imagine that scene done with a director who knew what he was doing, I mean pregnant women are getting face raped and re-impregnated by a monster then most likely having their unborn baby eaten alive inside, thats fucking horrific, but in this movie it was a schlocky shit scream scene, a good director would have made something to rival the shockingness of the first movies chestburster scene.<p> I see your points about the killing of the characters but that's what kinda turns it into a slasher type movie for me. Just kill em and skin em, although some of the deaths were cool and finally they were put on screen (like the face melting stuff) so I'll give them that. And I have seen the Bluray and that too was pitch black, but I think it does depend on your HDTV's contrast most likely too.

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    It was not an argument, but a joke - one with some element of truth to it. Of course Predator was/is beloved, and rightly so. But in those pre-internet days we took it as a given that certain movies were unequivocally liked by all. However, if the 'net had existed in 1987, we would have definitely gotten comments like that from some quarters. Not because the movie deserved them, but because online anonymity has given rise to haters attacking movies for ridiculous reasons, or just to draw attention to themselves. I guarantee that any classic from back in the day would not have been immune to such criticism, no matter how stupid, had fools a platform for their idiot opinions back then. Whether these idiots always existed and you just didn't know about them because you couldn't interact with a greater cross-section of people (or didn't keep the comapny of idiots), or whether internet forums helped foster these attitudes, remains to be seen.<p>And no, this wasn't a defense of 'Predators', if that's what you thought. That movie will likely be no more enjoyable than getting impaled up the behind with a large cactus. So slightly better than AvP Requiem, then.

Seriously, is anyone as irritated at these things as I get soemtimes? You know, as infamous as AICN is, why is this site so resolutely unprofessional? I could be unkind, and say that the character traits that prevent Harry from improving his wares, are the same ones that have kept him morbidly obese for decades - laziness, lack of self-respect, and general sloppiness.<P>All nothing to do with Predator/Predators at all, but waht the hell, it needs to be said (and has been said, many times in the past, all to no avail).

    I notice that the Preds don't seem to be "Super-Predators" but rather unimpressive and regular in size.

The 3D didn't really add anything the film, and is just a gimmick from the 50's that the industry has resurrected to combat piracy, (just as when they attempted to use it to combat television and home video in the 50's and 80's, respectively). Plus: -Completely thin and derivative storyline which was totally predictable and disappeared for long stretches at a time while CGI Na'vi rode CGI dragons and horse-things -Utterly unrealized, non-existent characters with pretty horrendous dialogue, IE: "Get yo' bitch ass back to mama", and "You ain't the only bitch with a gun, bitch"! -An utterly underwhelming score from James Horner -Unambitious and recycled sound effects, including T-Rex and Raptor noises from Jurassic Park!!! And probably more. It wasn't horrible, it was just a pretty decent concept, (and a great scriptment from '95) dumbed down for the Harry Potter/Spider-Man teenie bopper audience.

    by UGG

    "Avatar blues" I enjoyed the movie immensly but even I think this is going a bit far. <p> http://tinyurl.com/y8qu54s <p> For those who can't be assed <p> James Cameron's completely immersive spectacle "Avatar" may have been a little too real for some fans who say they have experienced depression and suicidal thoughts after seeing the film because they long to enjoy the beauty of the alien world Pandora. On the fan forum site "Avatar Forums," a topic thread entitled "Ways to cope with the depression of the dream of Pandora being intangible," has received more than 1,000 posts from people experiencing depression and fans trying to help them cope. The topic became so popular last month that forum administrator Philippe Baghdassarian had to create a second thread so people could continue to post their confused feelings about the movie. "I wasn't depressed myself. In fact the movie made me happy ," Baghdassarian said. "But I can understand why it made people depressed. The movie was so beautiful and it showed something we don't have here on Earth. I think people saw we could be living in a completely different world and that caused them to be depressed." A post by a user called Elequin expresses an almost obsessive relationship with the film. "That's all I have been doing as of late, searching the Internet for more info about 'Avatar.' I guess that helps. It's so hard I can't force myself to think that it's just a movie, and to get over it, that living like the Na'vi will never happen. I think I need a rebound movie," Elequin posted. A user named Mike wrote on the fan Web site "Naviblue" that he contemplated suicide after seeing the movie. "Ever since I went to see 'Avatar' I have been depressed. Watching the wonderful world of Pandora and all the Na'vi made me want to be one of them. I can't stop thinking about all the things that happened in the film and all of the tears and shivers I got from it," Mike posted. "I even contemplate suicide thinking that if I do it I will be rebirthed in a world similar to Pandora and the everything is the same as in 'Avatar.' "

    Yea, pity it was a game you couldn't actually play though. The haters were right on the money with Avatar - lots of pretty CG, wafer thin substance. In five years time everyone will be like "Avatar..meh. What the hell was all the fuss about?". As for Predators, who the fuck cares? This will be another shitty PG-13 no blood and gore piece of crap.

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    Avatar would have been 6 hours long and cost $500 million dollars to make. It's a neccesary evil to prune things down. I'm sure a few of those discarded bits and pieces will show up in the sequel anyway, in some form or other.<p>BTW, Fat Ass Fucker, people will be 'dissatisfed with the film later on just like so and so...' Lame. Just absolutely fucking lame. Is that all you've got? First, Avatar was supposed to be a technical disaster, then a financial one, then audiences would apparently hate the movie, according to you clowns. It decisively proved you wrong on all counts. It also became critically acclaimed, and proved itself to anyone with common sense (which certainly isn't you) to be a damn good movie. So you fuckers were shafted and shamed. Therefore, all you've got left in the tank is the pathetic comeback that people will eventually 'see the light' and turn on the movie. Weak sauce. Good for a chuckle, though. You're fucking Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons brought to life. Group think? You and your fellow joyless haters are a form of collective retard think. Sadly, there is no cure.

    From an interview with Cameron by MTV I think <p> Regarding a director's cut: "The director's cut is what we release. What we do is we do a special edition, where you could select a longer version of the film that had some scenes reinstated. But it's really more of a fan version than a director version. [The fan version will be] 10 or 12 minutes longer. Something like that."<p> Regarding whether Avatar 2 will be his next project: "There's a possibility of doing another picture in between. But I think we'll certainly get busy talking about what the strategy is, when it makes sense to do it, and laying any technical groundwork that needs to be done. These are big projects."<p> About the sex scene: "I think we took out a good ten seconds out of that scene. So I think it's one of those cases where the fantasy vastly exceeds the reality."<p> Hopefully some things maybe in there or the sequal as you say.

    Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave, yeah, right

    by Fa_Tass_DinoMolester

    You're the one who starts ranting about the "idiots and wastes of space", anytime someone expresses an opinion different from yours...which sounds much closer to Comic Book Guy than I. <p>Before Avatar came out, you were telling people who disagreed with you to kill themselves, (which your fellows obsessives seems to be doing anyway), which is INSANE. <p> So let me make this perfectly clear: people here can express themselves however they wish, and say whatever they want, (unless it's enough to get them banned, in which case they'll just be saying the same stuff under a different name). Nobody GIVES A SHIT about your opinion of them, nor did anyone ask for it; it's not your place to pop up and start labeling people who you don't agree with as "idiots, imbeciles wastes of space", or anything else as you've done in the past and continue to do. Just because you're a desperately unhappy, embittered schmuck with emotional issues, don't inflict your rants of those with despairing opinions on said other posters, (unless someone asks you, "Gee, Turd, am I an idiot")! Which quite frankly, I don't see happening. <p> BTW, I have to predict that you'll attempt to use the hypothetical question above as an insult in your next post, and utterly fail: just wanted to let you know how predictable you are.

    Great movie...

    by Red Ned Lynch

    ...you know, I keep promising myself that I won't post another comment about Avatar. See, I'm one of those people in the middle, and there's no room for them. I loved that my kids loved it, and it sure was a show. <p> It was certainly the best summer movie of the year, in spite of the fact that it came out in winter. And it was a technological triumph and should be lauded for that. It was a spectacle of the highest order, and, given that one job of a movie is to simply entertain, it must be judged a success. But it wasn't very deep, the recycling was too omnipresent and too obvious, and some of the dialogue should have been fixed after the first time anyone on set heard it spoken out loud. <p> Is it a great movie? Well, what do you think of those old MGM musicals, or Esther Williams? They were showing the audience things they had never seen before, they were grand spectacle, I'm sure for the people of the time they were an incredible show. And they made tons of bank. <p> They were great shows. But they weren't great movies. Now Avatar is more than those movies were. But was it more than Jurassic Park, a movie that was considered extraordinary now but whose stock has fallen over the years as the effects it displayed have become increasingly commonplace? <p> I think it's a little better than that, too, but I'm not sure it's a lot better. The stock for this movie will probably not fall as steeply as that of Titanic or Jurassic Park, but over time, unless Cameron does something like create a trilogy which in its whole creates something that is as magical story-wise and character-wise as spectacle-wise (a possibility I do not entirely discount) will fall. Doesn't mean it wasn't a great show. Three more things: <p> I will never comment on Avatar again. <p> I am probably lying. <p> This damned talkback is about a Predators movie.

    by Fa_Tass_DinoMolester

    "Before Avatar came out, you were telling people who disagreed with you to kill themselves." "Never said anything like this. I think you're confusing me with someone else. But if the shoe fits, right?" <p>Actually, no, you said something EXACTLY like that, repeatedly: namely, I distinctly recall the words, "kindly walk into a fire", I believe directed at TrannyFormers. And it was hardly said as a joke. <p> I'm not going to bother to respond to the other points in your last post, because it's just become increasingly obvious that you are a badly deluded idiot with a skewered view of yourself and your posts on this site. You're hardly a "great comedian", except in an unintentional way. "Dry sense of humor"? What in the name of god are you talking about? See, I was under the impression that in order to make an attempt at humor one had to make an ironic or vastly-exaggerated comment on an existing matter; you just babble on about how talkbackers who you disagree with are idiots. <p> You know what; I'm not going to argue with someone will say anything to win an argument. So fine, in the future, I'll just ignore you, and you can continue to post how most others people on the site are idiots and then act surprised when it pisses people, (in this case, me), off. Have fun. <p>BTW,sansara07, it's too late; he's posting from inside Cameron's luggage!

    I've blacklisted anything Robert Rodriguez creates

    by JohnCarterOfFarts

    because of his Will Smith-esque nepotism. Sorry, your child hasn't done enough to earn the title of filmmaker. They are not qualified to star/act/write screenplays for motion picture films. Will Smith and Robert Rodriguez do not care about films. They are businessmen, who are passing on the torch to the next generation, and the fact that people like Harry Knowles are enabling and promoting people like Robert Rodriguez I find disgusting and revolting. I saw through Shark Boy and Lava Girl thank you very much. Nepotism has no place in business or entertainment.

How awesome can you be when you make a vampire movie that sucks horrible ass the moment the vampires show up? And what the fuck is up with letting his kids write screenplays and putting whatever girl he's boinking in his films?

If you believe it is, then you should rent a room with the "I miss Pandora" idiots and choke yourselves into the dark abyss. Second, People are talking about shitty leaked photos and saying the film looks cheap because they don't look like the shitty leaked photos from Fangoria 20+ years ago? Are you fucking serious? I suggest you get in on the aforementioned hotel room before it's all full...

    I don't mean simplistic, since there are movies with simple plots that are truly great but sitting 2nd row from the front and with 3D specs didn't mask the retarded shit like a band suddenly rebelling against their commander out of nowhere because they think he's mean, led by a guy who's barely been there a few months just because "he has a big heart"? Michelle Rodriguez's character made no sense, why in the middle of an attack she just goes "this is wack yo! fuck all yall. bitch this and bitch that" and starts fighting the other ships (?) Who the fuck let her into a military mission of such apparent importance? The evil general was a cartoon, i can pretty much guess extra dialogue for him and it would be added in "i'm gonna open up a can of whoopass!" "go cry to momma" "lets tag and bag these sorry sounsabitches". Evil Arnie had more complexity than this Elmer Fudd asshole. WHat a shitty movie.
