Script by Cormac McCarthy. Directed by Ridley Scott. What could go wrong?

Well, a lot. But this looks amazing. The cast is badass. And the film has this "humid" look. Scott's a great director. If he has a great script, it'll live to its potential. And I think Prometheus and Body of Lies were as good as they could have been.

From the title I thought it was Councilor Troi fan fic.

I feel bad for Javier Bardem. I swear movie companies are trying to see who can give him the weirdest hair.

The hair wasn't in the book, so I wouldn't be surprised if someone here hasn't complained about it.

let them complain, cause it was a pretty solid move by the coens and helped make the character patently iconic

Looks interesting, but I'm not too excited about Penelope Cruz and Cameron Diaz.

Cameron Diaz should stick to comedies, and Penelope Cruz should stick to nothing. I seriously think she is one of the worst actresses currently in Hollywood. I don't know why I feel that way. I AM happy that Natalie Dormer is in the film though. [Smile]

I am however excited for the male cast. Javier Bardem is very underrated and I am glad he is getting more attention. Michael Fassbender seems to be in everything right now, but that is fine because I think he is phenomenal.

This is the first I've heard of this film's existence. I'm having a difficult time imagining what the screenplay manuscript would look like when written by Cormac McCarthy.
