There's a new trailer for Priest online. Plus: More Green Lantern spoilers and rumors emerge. X-Men: First Class scouting U.S. locations. Transformers 3 - to 3D or not 3D. More! It's your Comics2Film 10.9.10!




Surprise: Brolin Ain't Proud of JONAH HEX

It's not every day a filmmaker or actor will openly say they're not happy with a recent film they've done. Usually there's some tap-dancing around pointed questions in an effort to not only protect their own reputation and the studio's investment, but also to avoid disparaging others who worked on the film.

So actor Josh Brolin gets props for his answer to MTV Splash Page's question: Are you proud of Jonah Hex?

"Now that I don't have to promote it? . . . No," was Brolin's answer.

In the run-up to the movie, Brolin's sales pitch was that the movie had an absurdest sensibility. With a few months distance between him and the movie, he came clean to Splash Page as to what exactly he was talking about.

"That's what I told the marketing people at Warner Bros. I said, 'I can't lie about this, so I have to look for a truism that I can go with," he said. "I do think that if you go in there kind of like with Piranha 3-D'— when you go to see that movie you go, 'This is ridiculous and this is fun' — so if you went into Jonah Hex with that, I think you had a good time."

At the same time he diplomatically acknowledges that everyone who worked on the film set out to make a movie that was quite a bit different from the end result.



X-MEN: FIRST CLASS in Georgia?

Savannah Now, the website of Savannah Georgia's Morning Herald newspaper, reports that 20th Century Fox is scouting locations around the city for filming on Matthew Vaughn's prequel film X-Men: First Class.

According to Jay Self, the city of Savannah's director of Tourism and Film Services, producers for the film have applied for permits and begun other preparations for filming at such locations as Tybee Island, Thunderbolt and Savannah.

Local officials are said to be preparing for the filming, should the producers follow through and use the named locations. Self said decision-making factors for the filmmakers include how well the locations are suited to the action and stunt needs of the film, as well as the ability to convert the locations into the 1960s setting of the film.



TRANSFORMERS 3 - 3D or not 3D?

A source said to be close to director Michael Bay tells that Transformers 3 is not being filmed in 3D.

Reportedly initial photography made use of 3D equipment, but left them behind when the filming moved to Chicago. Details of why the decision was made are sketchy but it may be due to the constraints the larger 3D rigs place on a filmmaker.




Green Lantern super spy Pietro Filipponi has filed a new report focusing on the costume from the movie, this time at

While it does not contain the usual spoiler images, Filipponi says that he's seen "several high resolutions stills and storyboards which may be associated with Martin Campbell’s superhero adaptation." Reportedly the costume will look a bit different than the one that was revealed by Entertainment Weekly in July, and will hew more closely to the black and green two-tone that we're used to from the comics. He also reports that fans will get a look when Warner Bros pushes out a trailer for the film with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1.

Short of that he's offered a description of what he saw.

  • As we already knew, the suit appears as a hard-light construct from the ring, although the arms, legs and waist areas are a deep black, with clear lines separating green segments and black.
  • Those green striations in the costume that we saw in the EW image are energy bleeds with subside as Jordan gains mastery of the ring.
  • The green torso segment does not extend down to form trunks, as in the classic Gil Kane design.
  • The ring itself is silver with a green jewel on the front from which the energy emits.

For more descriptions, including the look of the energy batteries for recharging, and the constructs Jordan creates during the movie, click through for the complete report.

Thanks to AntoBlueberry for the submission.

What's with Paul Bettany, and all of these anti church themed movies?  Not that this looks bad or I won't see it.

Cant wait for Green Lantern........... but  "The ring itself is silver with a green jewel on the front from which the energy emits." It doesnt appear that way in the Entertainment Weekly issue when the ring is floating above his hand. Guess they could end up changing alot. We'll see. June cant get here soon enough.

FINALLY...a movie who says no to 3D. T3 just moved up a notch, can't wait.

littlemikey979 9/10/2010 9:16:29 AM

Wow, Brolin's got a brass set on him. I hope he gets to make some better movies soon, he is a great actor.

I think the real question should be, Transformers 3: To see or not to see?

BunyonSnipe 9/10/2010 9:38:48 AM

Anti-church movies are all the rage, plus of course in the 21st Century surely we can place the bible in it's proper context as fantasy fiction, with a message and not a text book!

pilgram 9/10/2010 10:24:22 AM

Priest looks good I'm excited.

Wiseguy 9/10/2010 10:57:01 AM

Ditto pilgram, that looked really good to me too. A little Matrix, a little Judge Dredd, a little Mad Max, looking forward to it

DrSpiderhead 9/10/2010 11:29:45 AM

Ha! I was confused at first.... I read the title "Priest" but was thinking DC/Vertigo's "Preacher".... and was like "wow, they got that wrong!"  Priest looks kinda cool though..... ... I'm really excited about the Green Lantern movie... I hope it is true to the comics and really pull in audiences.... it really could be a superhero Star Wars... I hope it opens doors for Flash, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Shazam!, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman and so on. Each one of those, if given the proper treatment, could be amazing!

BunyonSnipe 9/10/2010 11:43:23 AM

Is it just me or without the trunks GL looks a little too much like... Donald Duck in all his pantsless glory?

Muenster 9/10/2010 11:44:08 AM

I'd like to see a anti-islam movie for a change. One where a world, after tiring of nearly 1600 years of violence and hate decides to eradicte that cult from the planet, but then lucifer intervenes on the side of his millions of duped muslim followers.

Now that I think about it judeo/christian mythology is more fun and palatable, while ridiculing islamic cult leaders and koranic fiction violently offends too many many of the moron hordes that still cling to their superstitions. Cowardice keeps people from making movies about the 500 lb gorilla in the room.
