|This, is one awesome poster. So, what do we have? The face is the seat of our identity, when something sees our face, maybe even just a portion of our face, they can tell who we are. The language we see "written" on her face (and it maybe "burned" or tattooed, or even glued onto her, I'm not sure) is NOT Egyptian hieroglyphs, I know because I studied hieroglyphs for two years when I was in high school (there are examples of Egyptian hieroglyphs here). This language is more "runic" and was (probably) created for the film (or borrowed from some other ancient culture to stand in for the traditional hieroglyphs). Why is this important? The traditional language of a culture is the language that has been approved, used and is recognized, it's the canon and the identity of that culture itself. With a "counter-language" being used by someone we know was not a ruler, even though she wanted to be, it becomes subversive to the culture, society and values. There is also, however, another important aspect: there has to be a "new" language to say what cannot be said. In other words, "who" this woman is, who has been denied the right to rule, can only be told in a language that not everyone can read. For example, in Zootopia, Judy Hops, a bunny, meets Chester Cheetah, and Chester tells her what a cute bunny she is, to which Judy replies that one bunny can call another bunny cute, but another animal cannot call a bunny cute (rather the way blacks can call each other "nigger," but if a white, like Paula Deen uses the term, she's going to lose everything she has). There is also Baywatch, when Zac Efron's character says, "You people," and Dwayne Johnson's character corrects him and says, "You can't say that, you're just tan." SO, there has been a most regrettable assault on Americans' 1st Amendment right to free speech, that saying some things is a social crime if you are not of a specific gender or ethnic background. It's possible that the film makers have gone with this current and have created their own language to talk about Hillary Clinton and liberals.|
In some other news, Joss Whedon (who did the Hillary Clinton PSAs) is directing The Batgirl film. Jeremy Renner is not returning to Mission Impossible 6 due to conflicts with Marvel filming, but Rebecca Ferguson has confirmed she is returning. Christopher Nolan has gone on record stating that Dunkirk has been filmed to the full capacity of IMAX cameras; heretofore, only certain scenes would be shot in IMAX, or aspects of the IMAX cameras used, but Nolan has stated that the film will be released to maximize its presence on the screen. There is also a highly reliable report that the sequel to The Kingsman The Secret Service is totally amazing. The full details of the synopsis can be found here, and it looks like everyone is back except for Michael Caine's character (who died, but Harry, portrayed by Colin Firth, is back, and he "died"). I cannot wait to see that trailer!
The second announcement comes for Annabelle: Creation, which the first trailer is being released tomorrow:
On May 5th the greatest movie in the history of movies is coming. There has never been and will never again be a movie like this. Seriously. Ever heard of Citizen Kane? We're much better. Seriously. Our movie just tested at over one million points. Rotten tomatoes already has it at 234% fresh. #GotGVol2 will win every movie award AND about 39 Olympic gold medals in swimming, gymnastics, the skiing event with the gun, x games, snowmobiling and everything. It will win the World Cup and about 7 super bowl rings, sorry TOM Brady. This movie will fry your brains and lift your spirits. James Gunn will be elected president of the world. They will add the faces of the guardians to Mount Rushmore for sure. We're gonna get a planet. May 5th will become a national holiday. Everyone will get pregnant. Candy will fall from the sky. Global warming will stop. Dinosaurs will come back to life. Which unlike some movies might tell you, is actually a really good thing. Because they won't flip out and kill people instead they'll be your awesome pets. So basically get your tickets as soon as you can. Don't be the only person on the planet who doesn't see this movie.
Of course, that movie telling you that dinosaurs are going to "flip out and kill people" was Pratt's own Jurassic World, and they have released their first image for Jurassic World 2:
