OK, they are going to start playing San Andreas on TV, so that can be our Summer Disaster Movie…unless we can get tickets for ID4. Since it is being setup as the hook for a trilogy, hopes are dim, but at least the special effects will be spectacular -at least the ones from the trailers are so.
Otherwise, it seems that the secret service comedy The Rock has coming up soon should be good. And The Home Alone - Pets edition movie is really going to be off the hook.
Unfortunately, as we gaze upon teh movie landscape of remakes/sequels and refried ideas, we can also hear the distant thuinder of heretics - who the hell dares to remake The Rocky Horror Picture Show?! The horror, the horror…
I have also realized that Chinese cinema is now engaged in copying US 80’s and 90’s rom-coms, in which women dare to ponder whether they can manage work and get a boyfriend serious enough to get married. Examples of these are Go Lala Goand The last woman standing, which bring echoes of everything from Working Girlon. Guess in 5 years or so we’ll get the Chinese version of Don’t know how she does it.
