So, "Rogue One" is on Netflix streaming in the USA, and someone pulled ye olde "Backstroke of the West" captioning. Click here for Star Wars: Grand Theft Auto.

So... between the title, the setup that the trailer provides, and now this poster, we're getting very strong indicators that mother! might actually be Aronofsky's stealth Rosemary's Baby remake. I am so down for this.

Oh hey, Netflix is literally writing their series with algorithms now. Nothing to worry about here, I'm sure. (From an interview about the development of Maniac with Cary Fukunaga.)

Re: Random Movie Talk That Probably Doesn't Deserve Its Own Thread

According to Box Office Mojo's estimates, we have a new winner - Avengers: Endgame has outgrossed Avatar worldwide.

I gotta say I'm happy that Avatar was dethroned. It's just a boring and forgettable retelling of the "white savior going native" story that has been told much more interestingly many times before. I watched it again recently and it felt very bland.

Also, Avatar 2 is gonna be an important case for anyone interested in box office performance. So many things have changed in the past decade. How many people will want to watch it? I'm very curious about that.

Shared this w/Teague in the chat, figured I'd dump it here too: everyone, enjoy this dissection of how much a "Bruce Willis" performance in a VOD movie is actually him vs. his poorly disguised body double.

Nice. Reminds me of the opposite back in '02 where Joss Whedon intentionally framed people on far opposite sides of a wide shot with a ton of space in the middle to force a 16:9 broadcast from Fox.

Re: Random Movie Talk That Probably Doesn't Deserve Its Own Thread

I am extremely excited for the new "The Colour Out of Space" adaptation featuring Nicolas Cage.

It all begins with a meteor that falls to earth and lands on the New England farm property of the Gardener family, located just outside of Arkham, the fictional Massachusetts town featured in many of Lovecraft’s stories. Stanley establishes the family as weird but in a quirky and functional way. There’s the father (Nicolas Cage, at Cage-levels so high it honestly makes Mandy look restrained) who likes bourbon and is a bit insecure about his recent decision to buy Alpacas for the farm that serve no function; the mother (Joely Richardson) who supports him by working from home; and their three kids (Brendan Meyer, Madeleine Arther, and Julian Hilliard) who share farm duties in between exploring their own interests in occultism and NASA.

However, that meteor brings with it a strange beam of colors that begin to infect and permeate their surroundings, creating a constantly mutating sense of biology, psychology and time. Days begin to bleed into each other, new plants and bugs begin to appear, the crops grow big and juicy but ultimately rotten on the inside, animals go missing and reappear in misshapen forms and the already eccentric Nicolas Cage is pushed to places he genuinely hasn’t been since the comic mania of Vampire’s Kiss. [Emphasis mine.]

Holy fuck, that sounds really cool. Annihilation was already a quasi-adaptation of this story; it's about time they made a real one.

EDIT: OK, there have been some previous adaptations (I can vaguely remember the one with Wesley Crusher), but this one will take advantage of modern VFX wink
