If they put together a two hour movie of all trailers, I'd be sold. Here's the next Vin Diesel pic ->

A dark sci fi thingy with lots of cg.

Yeah, this would be the prequel to Pitch Black, correct? It looks pretty good, but in PB he was a bad criminal, who only just redeemed himself at the end.

This time around, it looks like he's gonna be a superhero, who just misunderstood after he saved the universe.

Assuming it is, of course, a prequel, and not more of a sequel, time wise. I should really look into things like that before I go off ranting.

Interesting tidbit on imdb: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0296572/plotsummary

Looks like it's set in the future (aka Pitch Black 2)

If it's after Pitch Black, then it makes a bunch more sense.

I liked PB, for a mindless space monster movie, it was pretty well done. And vinny wasn't the overhyped overpaid action star he is now, so it was fun to watch.

About netflix - how's the quality and all? And the viewing restrictions?

Ish

This movie looks pretty good too, I saw the preview just a day or two ago. I can't say it's very illuminating as to what's going on, but interesting nonetheless. The girl who they feature doesn't seem to fit into a sci-fi movie very well though.

i was waiting to see if anyone else would bring up the topic, but i couldn't hold it in anymore. The movie was how can i say, overall not good. there are a number of things that i just didn't like about the ending. I'll wait to see who else has seen it before i post spoils. i saw it on friday but i've beening waiting because i didn't want to spoil it for someone who hasn't seen it yet. but the next time i post about this topic, there's going to be some major spoiling going on.

okay so what do my people have to say about this film. to me they could have done a better job. I hate the fact that the girl died in the end. that was stupid. Nonetheless, i will have to have it on dvd when it comes out. Vin diesle is a good actor, its just these bloody directors keep giving him these stupid mucho takes. he was good in pitch black but damn , how long can one person keep up the bad guy act.

This movie is crap. The only good part is the head villain, particularly his fight at the end. Other than that this movie is like a childrens' flick.
