Movie looks ok, but rumor has it that a Batman:Begins teaser trailer is attached to this film. I posted this a while back but was passed over hopefully a Batman tease will be cool

I really like Proyas so I'll definitely check it out.

I haven't seen the movie, and I don't know where the plot goes (other than rampaging robots). But I already know that this is a disgrace to Asimov, and already don't like it. It's not even worth seeing. No thanks.

I love Proyas' stuff, and will see this opening weekend.

Here's a review:

Alex Proyas has finally fulfilled the promise that Dark City made and, with the help of a boatload of CG, delivered his first futuristic masterwork - less gritty than Blade Runner and less emotional than Minority Report - but a movie that is sleek in its general simplicity and clarity of purpose.

The trailer sucked ballz, and pretty much gave the entire movie plot away, so unless it's a totally different movie than what they're selling it as, I'm not interested. I love "Dark City" but this doesn't thrill me on first glance.

I loathe Will Smith. I'd rather get root canal that see him play himself in yet another movie. Plus I thought the movie is suppose to be about Robots, but all I see in the trailers are animated cartoons. Roger the Rabbit looked more realistic than the robots in this movie.

But I'm sure the movie will make a ton & most here will want to see it.

I'm not to keen on Smith, but I liked Proyas much more, hence why I'm seeing this.

It's about time we get some scifi (and not the tech noir scifi like Matrix).
