It can't possible be worse than AVP:R, right?

I've been wondering when someone would get around to a thread on this.

I thought the latest trailer might be the impetus for one.

Trailer made me laugh when I saw it in theaters. Always good to see a Scifi Comedy or two.

At least you can see what's going on in the trailer.

Any trailer that references Stephen Hawking that much interests me.

After Emmerich shitting on our eyes with ID4 and 2012, I'm up for something possibly new. Could be more shit of course.

According to Deadline, Sony may sue over this film because they have their own alien flick coming out a few months after called "Battle: Los Angeles."

It's because the Strause brothers were hired to do the effects for Battle: Los Angeles and did not disclose this film to Sony.

Like AVP:R there are good ideas, like that shot with the swarm of people being abducted, but it all lies in the execution.

Same here. Though one of my friends that saw it let out a really loud burst of laughter with that "Stephen Hawking...." line in the trailer.

I'm also intruged, but these two directors haven't made anything decent yet, so I have low expectations as well.

Same here. Only I have no interest in seeing it and assume that you are joking about that little bit.

Saw the teaser and thought it looked interesting, until I went to IMDB and found it was done by the AvP:R guys.

I like it. Sounds like something that John Carpenter could tackle.

And I'm sorry to hear that you're having a bad day.

Hopefully you can actually see what's happening. AVPR was probably the darkest film I've seen in 10 years.

I'm a total sucker for alien invasion movies, so part of me is excited to see this.

The other part of me remembers AVP:R.
