Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens (Dir: Sonnenfeld

well....this sounds stupid crazy....but...for some reason...I want to see wtf this looks as whole...I don't like Sonnenfeld...but Morrison (while one can argue is an overrated guy) writing this has got my interest...also...as stupid of a visual that concept art is...it's...kind of cool looking.

Director Barry Sonnenfeld and acclaimed comics writer Grant Morrison (The Invisibles) are teaming up for Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens. Sonnenfeld will direct and Morrison will write the graphic novel and the screenplay. The story takes place on a secret pre-historic Earth where aliens invade and super-intelligent dinosaurs are the planetís only hope

I wonder how they will try to anthropomorphise this, either going for talking dinosaurs or humanoid aliens.

Still waiting for Bio-Engineered Humanoid Talking Raptors with Laser Assault Riffles to appear in Jurassic Park 4.

Cast Thomas Jane as the human lead and I'm there.

Is this a serious movie? If not, we already got Monsters Vs Aliens. If it is, it sounds stupid.

There's a pretty good Star Trek novel about how raptors would be the predominant species on Earth, even travelling in space if the extinction event hadn't occured. And talking too!
Raptors are an alien race and they seeded Earth back in prehistoric times. Raptors from the home planet travel back in time to deflect the asteroid from hitting Earth, changing the time line. The Enterprise goes back in time to stop them.

Re: Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens (Dir: Sonnenfeld

This screams development hell. What studio is going to put serious money into this? Will there be any humans? We need a Shia LaBeouf to draw the audience in.

They need to put a moratorium on any movie with "vs" in the title. Help us, Obama!

In some ways I might be interested in it too if it were presented in some kind of "realistic" way. I mean say aliens crash on Earth 100 million years ago and most, if not all of their technology is broken and they have to survive in that environment. If today's humans were able to go back in time, at least we know what dinosaurs are and what to expect, but aliens would have no idea what they just got themselves into. I could see a little green guy tinkering with his ship and then a T-Rex comes up and scares the shit out of him.

I think it sounds stupid that the dinosaurs are super smart. Try to do it realistically and just have these aliens dealing with a completely unknown enviroment. The aliens language could be subtitled.

Yeah, I'd really be game w/ a non speaking Dinosaur element. All in the eyes and the action to tell the story. If someone took it seriously and had like dinosaurs w/ their terrestrial instincts vs. an alien race. At it's most basic form, I guess you can say. Especially w/ how that concept art looks.

Re: Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens (Dir: Sonnenfeld

So how long before this gets made into a movie?



Although given it features intelligent dinos, this movie brings this show to mind instead:

Well I think Denver the Last Dinosaur should be made into a movie first. Cuz he's your friend and a whole lot more.

If that's what it takes, so be it, I just want that thing made.

Been years, don't really remember. Published in the late '90s. Believe it had "Frontier" in the title. First Frontier?

Re: Dominion: Dinosaurs Versus Aliens (Dir: Sonnenfeld

I think this would be better suited as an animated film. Of course, I'd watch a movie full of dinosaurs kicking alien ass, but I don't trust Sonnenfeld to make what my mind has already conjured up.
