fighting robots

Two new trailers here for you, one for Rise of the Planet of the Apes which might show more of the film than you’d like, the second is a kick-ass Japanese trailer for robo-fighting movie, Real Steal.

This trailer for Rise of the Planet of the Apes comes from the UK, which is why there’s a confusing August 12th release date at the end, I promise it releases in the US on the 5th. It features a lot of new footage, some would say too much. If you were already sure you’d be checking out Rise then I’d say skip it. There isn’t anything too spoilery but it does give away quite a bit of the set-up.

Rise stars James Franco as the scientist who in a way creates the first smart ape, Caesar. Caesar is going to be the real star of this movie, you just know it. He looks incredible, very real, very believable. And from what we see in this trailer the emotion Andy Serkis and WETA wizards are capable of getting across is unbelievable. I’m expecting this movie to really make us humans look and feel like complete shit. Which in some cases, many involving the treatment of animals, we should feel like shit. I don’t understand how you can’t feel compassion for other living creature but really how you won’t be able to feel for the incredible WETA apes in this movie, I don’t know. You’d have to be some heartless asswipe. Check out the trailer below and give us your thoughts. Think this film will make you scream ‘Ape Power!’

The trailer for Hugh Jackman‘s new movie Real Steel hit the internet this week. I wasn’t expecting much and was suprised that I actually want to see this movie.

In the film Jackman plays Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

The story might have some depth beyond the enjoyment of seeing huge robots beat the crap out of each other. The father son relationship and back story of redemption in his son’s eyes might make this movie entertaining.

Check out the trailer below and let NerdBastards know what you think.

Skids and Mudflap are the two jive talking robots in Transformers Revenge of The Fallen that have fans calling out “racism”.  However one fan insists that these characters are not black. Rogerebert.com has robot defender, Matt Boswick commenting on Eberts harsh review. First he tells Ebert that he feels sorry that he can’t enjoy cool cars, gorgeous woman and fighting robots but then he goes on to say:
And just for your info, the two “black” characters in the new movie are not black, they learned how to talk through the World Wide Web, which is why different Transformers talk differently; that’s why one has a British accent. I don’t see all the Brits freaking out because one said “bollocks.”
I’ll admit this gave me one of those Ah Hah moments. Its does perfectly explain the robots hip hop, street speak. However, Boswick does not win the racist argument. He fails to justify the robots physical appearance. I’m sorry but the buck teeth, small heads and big ears is just plain inappropriate.
