I haven’t seen this, and judging from the trailers, I definitely don’t want to. One of the trailers was a “message from the actors” clip, and judging by their accents, I’d be willing to bet anything you’d care to mention that they ain’t British.
And then there was the bit with the guy pointing to the sky and saying that the red light was Mars. He must’ve had good eyes, as it was full daylight.
According to comments made on AICN, when the director (Timothy “legend in his own mind” Hines) announced that production had started, he said that Caine and Theron were already signed to be in the movie. Turns out that he had just sent to their agents unsolicited scripts and letters inquiring as to their availability. At one point, he also stated that the SFX would be “better than the Matrix.”
Now, I enjoy seeing arrogance like this come to its downfall as much as anyone, but after seeing various online reviews (Amazon, waroftheworldsonline.com) I’m not going anywhere near this one…unless MST3K comes out of retirement and riffs on it, of course.
