What are the chances of two 'Die Hard In The White House' films getting released just months apart? And it's always such a shame when this kind of thing happens because, inevitably, whichever film gets released second is the one that suffers. In fact, to Average Joe Cinema, it might even look like this film has COPIED Olympus Has Fallen. Well, let me be the first to assure you that this kind of laziness just doesn't happen in the entertainment industry.
Finally a 3D remake worth seeing and it gets shit-canned. Does this mean the sequels are in trouble too? Bah. Horrible news via Den of Geek. Update! I couldn't stand the injustice so took matters into my own hands. Presenting: Boomer 3D!
Did you know Shakespeare didn't even write his own plays? Yeah mate, totally true. It was some Welsh bloke with a beard. Oh yeah, and the moon landing was fake too – they done it in a Margate car park. JFK? Martian hit squad. And Derren Brown predicted 9/11, but promised Osama Bin Laden he'd never tell anyone. No word of a lie mate, I swear. The bloke who directed Godzilla told me.
This could be too nerdy - even for you guys - but Roland Emmerich is confirmed to direct sci-fi supremo Isaac Asimov's epic Foundation trilogy, and in 3D to boot. In space, no one can hear you EXTREEEEEEME!
After making the disaster-movie-to-end-all-disaster-movies with 2012, you'd think Roland Emmerich would lay the genre to rest and challenge himself with a rom-com, or even just a music video. But no. Apparently he now wants to make two back-to-back sequels to Independence Day.
Take a look at this week's release schedule: the distinctions between the choices couldn't be more clear. If I want to go and see a film, I'll go and see Michael Haneke's The White Ribbon. If I want to go and see a movie, I'll go and see Roland Emmerich's 2012.
That's right, John. In what could perhaps be considered a major spoiler for a film about the end of the world, 2012 will live on in 2013, a televised miniseries about life after disaster. It's a disafter movie. But on TV.
