I had really high hopes for this movie, until about 5 minutes ago when I watched the new trailer. The classic opening dialogue is now spoken in that idiot smack-me-in-the-mouth-coz-I-grate-on-your-nerves American accent. The whole movie is dripping trashy mainstream Americanism! This movie is gonna be just like almost every other remake. Trashy! No brainer! Simple! Dumbed-down! With a flashy lick of special effects paint and "America saves the day!! YAY for us!!" :mad: Another classic wrecked!!!

Damnit! Leave it alone why don't you!

HERE (http://www.tombraiderforums.com/m/d/waroftheworlds_i480.zip) is the trailer. Judge for yourselves.

bleck! ... Minority Report with Speilberg and Cruise was good; but War of the Worlds :(
I wish they'd resurrect it properly, because when it was originally broadcast it was done across the radio as if it were really happening.

I think the only way to recreate that would be to do a similar media hoax. Could be done with special effects and such; but I guess hollywood wouldn't get as much revenue from that. http://www.tombraiderforums.com/images/smilies/tongue.gif

I'm used to the superlative narrative of Richard Burton in Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds. The trailer I've just watched on the website is a joke in comparison. The power of the language is totally destroyed! http://www.tombraiderforums.com/forums/icons/icon13.gif

if Steven Speilburg is making it...that must a nice stuff.

Let's see.

No good movie after Matrix-3 and LOTR-3. I'm rubbing my ass with a rock from Mars.
