PARADISE LOST Production Delayed
I am really hoping this is epic. I need this to be really good. There is no more interesting subject imo than the war of the angels and Lucifers casting out. Guess some of that Catholic school stuff stuck after all.We were just starting to get excited about Paradise Lost. Neat concept art. A solid cast in Benjamin Walker, Bradley Cooper, Casey Affleck, and Dijmon Hounsou. A great pitch from director Alex Proyas:
“It’s not just armies battling in an epic war. This is an adventure about the origins of good and evil after Lucifer’s rebellion gets him cast out of Heaven and leads to a struggle with his brother archangel over the soul of mankind, starting with Adam and Eve.”
Alas, we must wait to see the adaptation of John Milton’s classic work come to fruition. It was announced tonight that Legendary Pictures is putting plans for a January start date on hold, because all the cool elements of this project add up to too much $$$

Hope otherwise, but so far this looks like it's going to be another generic failure to adapt a classic story. Too much of what I have seen so far was created on a computer with, what appears to be, a bare minimum based in reality. Looks oversimplified.
Official Blurb For Gravity, A Massive New Sci-Fi Film From The Director Of Children Of Men | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Real nice posterNext up, the incredibly ambitious science fiction film, Gravity. JoBlo have somehow gotten their hands on what they’re calling an official synopsis for the film. It’s a tad spoilery, but I’m sure the trailer and maybe even poster will be too:
[Sandra] Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky [George Clooney] in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.
The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left.
But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
Hmmm. Really bad cgi ruins what looks like it could be a good Jason & The Argonauts/Sinbad movie. Is it just me or does Liam Neeson's mustache look like it's threating to fly off? And Manson's Sweet Dreams being used in yet another trailer...really? Forget that it's horribly inappropriate but hasn't there been any new music in the last, what 15 years? It's another post convert job too, so skip the inflated 3d tix if you intend to see this. I thought the first one was harmless and decent we'll see if this one warrants a matinee.
