Alex Cross is getting a sequel. I am not sure why. It was not exactly a hit. I still haven’t seen it but I seen enough reviews that suggest I haven’t missed anything. Tyler Perry, for whatever talents he has or doesn’t have (if you are not a fan of his), might simply not be an action hero. Some actors just aren’t.
A Haunted House is getting a sequel. Oh well, that is another film I won’t see but I did not think the movie was successful. Oh well, Cedric the Entertainer got a paycheck. One critic wrote that Cedric’s name had never seemed so much like false advertising in a review of this movie. (From what I have seen of the movie, sadly that might be funnier than anything in the movie.)
Brad Pitt said in an interview about his movie World War Z that the movie started filming without a completed script. Really? Who thought that was a good idea? Does this happen a lot? (I guess that would explain a lot if it does. ) I still want to see World War Z, as of this typing, but I am a bit apprehensive. If the reviews are terrible, I reserve the right to change my mind about seeing the movie.
I have listened to the audiobook by Max Brooks and it is a good book. However it might not really be adaptable to a big screen action movie. Maybe it would be better as a cable tv mini-series. The previews for the movie look decent.
The Lone Ranger comes out in July. Johnny Depp’s Tonto looks weird. Maybe after a while of watching the movie, it won’t be distracting. Arnie Hammer is the Lone Ranger. He might be good.
