Didn't know this was being made.

Looks enjoyable.

Ang Lee's delicate filmmaking style can be great in the action adventure genre. The original Hulk film would have matched up nicely if given a chance in the MCU. It was sorta a prelude to perfecting the MCU.

The de-aging technology looks pretty good, but it still doesn't beat Joseph Gordon-Levitt in strange prosthetics.

I liked 500 Days of Summer too, Groucho.

Looks interesting. Maybe a return to 90s glory for both Smith and Jerry Bruckheimer.

Agreed. He looks like a character in a video game, and the exploding dirt bike doesn't help...

The trailer doesn't inspire me much...looks too derivative.

Since the trailer and poster pretty much gave everything away, I'll wait for a rental.

The fights between the two Will's look as bad as the burly brawl from the Matrix Reloaded.

This movie has been rolling around Hollywood for years. I got really excited about it back in the 90s when it was being eyed at as a vehicle for Sean Connery to go against his younger James Bond self. I think the concept is solid, but Will Smith means that I now have little to no interest in it. So many great actors they could have gotten for this role and they go with the Vanilla Prince of acting.

But it's Ang Lee. Even his failures are interesting. I'll see this.

The de-aging looks pretty good. The only thing that seems "off" is that I know that's not what Will Smith looks like these days.

I havenít heard about this project until now but that would have been awesome! Although, Iím not sure the technology was there in the 90s to give us a realistic looking Bond era Connery vs. a League of Extraordinary Gentleman era Connery.

I saw the trailer for the first time before Avengers, and on the big screen at least, I thought the de-aging looked pretty bad to be honest. It reminded me of when they scan an actor's face for a video game, which is something that works when everyone is digital as well, but it really stood out to both my wife and I standing next to real-life people.

The action looked pretty good though.
