Sometimes a paycheck is a paycheck. At least we have him to look forward to in Richard Kelly's new film next summer.

And the trailer does absoultetly nothing for me.

It does look like Resident Evil. Normally I'd skip this totally but if the reviews are decent I might wait til DVD.

looks good, but one thing I'm really getting sick of is that blood curdling scream they have at the end of the trailer (right after the guy says "sir are you ok?"). it's in like every bad action movie and video game.

I hope it'll be good

That's the first thing I thought after seeing the trailer, that damn annoying scream. It was also used in Broken Arrow when Howie Long's character is thrown off the bridge towards the end and at the begining of some cartoon monster show that was on Nicolodeon.

The trailer kind of gave me an Aliens vibe, just the whole marines going to a planet to save people but being outnumbered by, you guessed it, Aliens...

That's just what I Thought...

I guess I'll watch it. looks a little cheesy. But atleast the whole movie isn't dark and people may actually be able to use a flash light and a gun at the same time.

I think sound people try to fit it in as a joke now more than anything.

Looks awful, but I'm sure it'll make money.

Saw this in HD on HDNet today. Looks pretty good, even more so than the Resident Evil trailers. Should be a good, mindless, blow shit up kind of movie.

Looks ... sufficent. Can't really say much more yet.

I just hope that some actioneer wit, or interesting characters are there. The trailer makes it look very ... bland.

Actually, if it weren't for The Rock's track record, I probably wouldn't even watch it. But he seems to pick really cool movies (save Be Cool) to work on.

That scream first appeared in Doom (the original video game)... I hadn't heard it before hearing it in the game - then started seeing it in movies all the time. I think it's annoying, but I would've been upset if they left it out of this film.

Yeah, the only scream I hate more is the Wilhelm (I don't remember if that's how it's spelled).

The trailer looks decent but I see that the monsters aren't going to be demons. Doesn't surprise my as Ewen Bremmer's comments on the subject seemed a bit cagey.

Looks interesting, although it reminds me of Aliens.

It's kinetic melodic punk rock - similar to Avail or Hot Water Music, only faster.

Sadly, you're speaking Greek to me, Trigger. *l* I'm just going to have to download one of their tracks and see for myself.
