Yeah, we’ve got another Independence Day coming for some reason. Another trailer has dropped. How is it?
Self-referential? Cliched? Half-baked explanations for the total absence of Will Smith? Yup. All that is accounted for. Like the last one, it looks like a lot of ideas and shots taken from other, better movies. See for yourself after the cut.
2016. Did any of us think we’d live this long? Yeah, probably. We’re Geeks, not morbid.
So, what sort of Geek Entertainment has us here at Gabbing Geek at least a little curious? See behind the cut, with some items getting some expert Geek Commentary from the Geek Guru himself, Jimmy Impossible.
Like many mid-90’s popcorn blockbusters, Independence Day often gets a hard time. I’m not sure why (ok, I get stuff like the “computer virus” being snickered at) but it is a great mindless summer movie, with good characters, effects, acting, etc. But I’m a sucker for things blowing up. So I’ve always liked ID4, but one thing I never felt was required was a sequel.
But 20 years later, as usual, no on listens to me and we have Indepence Day: Resurgence scheduled for release on June 24th, 2016. Remember that Will Smith guy who pretty much carried the film? No one wants to see him anymore. Let’s just bring back Jeff Goldblum from the core stars. Hey, it worked so well for Jurrasic Park! (I’m among the few that liked The Lost World, but that’s my joke and I’m sticking to it.)
You can watch the trailer for this “long awaited” sequel after the break. Let us know what you think. When we watched it in the Gabbing Geek editorial meeting, Ryan and I both felt it struggled to decide if it was an intense action flick or a complete rehash of the original.
Did you see the Suicide Squad pictures Director David Ayers tweeted on Wednesday from Harley’s Tattoo Parlour? Well if not, we have them for you. In full Harley Quinn makeup, Margot Robbie grabbed a gun and signed Ayer’s skin with “SKWAD.” Then the rest of the cast took turns in the fiasco. Lord help me I would have been screaming! Check out what Daddy’s Little Monster and the rest of the cast did after the break:
One of the hottest topics on the Gabbing Geek website these days tends to be Margot Robbie’s upcoming portrayal of the villainous Harley Quinn. Particularly popular is her “Daddy’s Little Monster” t-shirt. The attention continues to surprise me so I wanted to look at JUST how big a star Robbie and her character are set to become. And as always, we at Gabbing Geek like to have some numbers.
Did you see the Suicide Squad footage from Comic-Con and think, “that looks pretty cool. I recognize…um…is that the Joker? And maybe that girl is…that crazy harlequin girl he hangs around with. And, oh, there’s Batman! And Will Smith! And…that guy from The Killing. I think he was in Robocop. What’s his name? Tom Hardy?”
Well, you’re probably not alone. If you need an introduction to all things Suicide Squad, check out the video after the break.
