according to these greasers, there is one trilogy, with weiss & benioff and johnson working together.  divergencies liquidated, i guess?


That's not what it says, to be fair? It just says they're planning the stuff together.

No idea where i got the idea 5 star wars films have been announced. Seems there's only 3 everywhere I'm reading now.

Could be operating in the same time frame i guess but still easy enough for them to do their own things. Probably best not to step on each others' toes with similar ideas irrespective of shared setting or not, too

The Abyss flopped at the BO and was kind of panned by critics.

On release, yes, but it's much better-regarded now, especially with the Director's Cut (which restores the original, much better ending).

Also, it made $90 million on a budget of $45 million back when marketing spends were nothing like they are now, so it made a modest profit on release.

piranha 2 likely made the list of worst movies ever made.

 

Cameron was brought in two weeks into filming after the original director was fired, couldn't communicate with the crew (who were Italian) and got into massive arguments with the film's producer who took over final cut and locked Cameron out of the editing suite, so it's a bit of a stretch to say it's a proper Cameron film. Although even with that one he still put together his own director's cut years later (when he became a bigger name), and it's supposed to be a relative improvement.

Yeah, it just says they're comparing notes and that the "next decade" of Star Wars movies is going to have some stuff in common which they're working on, not that there's a three-way collaboration going on.

Oh I love the DC cut of The Abyss. Easy one of my all time favorite films, hell, maybe my all time favorite film period after Aliens.

Edit: Which is to say I know how well regarded it is now.

Technically, hugely impressive. But the direction is too fast and dynamic, there's no effort to integrate it with the much more gentle, standard camera movements from the film itself, so the new material stands out hugely.

Well I think RJ's skills can mitigate some of D&D's issues hopefully. And if this is a project they actually want to be on they might bring the dialogue from the early seasons and not the bullshit we've gotten recently.

And its official (and I appear to have been wrong) - D&D are doing the first sw after ros.

That was pretty much my reaction to the announcement.  I haven't even watched this last season of GOT but everything about it sounds pretty bad.  They seem to be at their best when they have good source material to work with but when left to their own devices, not so much.

Maybe they'll be adapting popular games or expanded universe comics/books?

Brightside is they have some great actors to pick from GOT to get involved particularly the older cast members.

Well, they could have timed that announcement better.

I can see how in paper it might have seemed a great time to announce. Then again, i get the impression rian Johnson's films are still the more controversial? Or can both sides of the last jedi argument unite over w&b?
