maybe, just maybe, once these first 5 are done we'll get something more original.

Like an Obi Wan movie, you mean?

I can't be the only one who rolled their eyes at that announcement, right?

Just found this strip.
Not bad at all. Will there be more by these 2 guys? Is it just on the website or in a comic somewhere?

Main reason for posting though is listing the crowd scene guest stars...all speculation on my part though.

Part 1. Torquamada, Tiger commander from Meltdown Man, Preacher Cain (back of his head), a Kleg, Howard the Duck

Part 4. Kang or Kodos from the Simpsons

Part 7. Daredevil (Universe X version)

Part 8 & 9. A Kleg, Rhino from Meltdown Man, Axel Pressbutton

Part 10. Kree Warrior, Zenith (can just see the Z on his shirt), Dalek, Wookie (?), Swamp Thing, Dredd or a Judge, Blok (?-Legion of Superheroes), Halo Jones, Tharg, Space Ghost (Scooby Doo), The Fury, Mekon, Spidey, Hammerstein

Part 15. Ro Jaws, Kleg

They've already done this with Red Seas and Caballistics.
Well, quite, hence my suggestion. I'd sooner they do that than just churn out the old EEs as PDFs. (Although if they did, it'd be piss easy to make your own custom collections anyway.)
I love making custom collections with my 2000AD purchases. I regularly break down my progs into series arcs for easy rereads. And I've pieced together Meg floppy reprints that got spaced out, like putting the final Samantha Slade Robo-Hunter strip From the Ian Gibson collection, into the prior month's Robo-Hunter volumes. So it's continuous. Thank god for drm-free CBRs.

make it four and add some edginton singles like leviathan (assuming thats not in the ampney crucis book) could be a nice wee run
You could toss American Gothic in there, no problem.  I'd say Detonator X too, but that's in color.

Fuck all y'all, Goldsman wrote the best Batman movie and the best Lost in Space reboot film that came out in 1998 starring a member of the cast of Friends and Gary Oldman, this still might be good.

It would really screw with audience expectation to have a mid-budget Star Wars film.
Thing is, the average punter doesn't have a clue about movie budgets - it's not as if you'd have to market it as such, and there's no need for a low or midrange budget movie to look cheap in this day and age - I'm just saying that maybe not every single blockbuster needs to end with a 45 minute cacophony of cgi excess?

It's nearly always clear in a trailer how 'expensive' or 'big' a film looks – even at a sub-conscious level it registers with the audience – unless you have an expensive cast, which can amount to the same thing.

Not sure about that, I certainly remember some comments on Dredd and budget.

Abram's influence on ST:D.

My grud but that was some professional-level bollocks.

A more kinetic camera, a more dynamic way of existing, a much greater use of practical sets so when you’re running down a corridor, you’re running down a corridor. A sense of rhythm…there is a sense of litheness, a kind of fluidity in the characterizations

Reads like Waldo Dobbs translating a Torquetto Jubbli script.

My point is that (in my opinion) Disney didn't seem to have a lot of confidence in Rogue One, and that's why they threw a huge amount of money at it, adding the huge space battle, the weird cgi cameos and the Darth Vader stuff at the end that clearly cost a fortune, yet added nothing to the story the film was telling.

I'm surprised how expensive Logan was (relatively) though.

I don't mean it felt cheap, but it feels more like a film that would have cost $50m rather than twice that - a smaller scale Dredd type film.

Maybe I'm alone in this, but I thought Logan could have lost a lost of the expensive looking vfx-heavy stuff (the de-aged Logan villain, the big mutant battle at the end) and it wouldn't have suffered one bit, either quality or box office-wise - In actual fact I think it would have improved the film, which started to feel quite bloated to me at the end, again, perhaps because Fox didn't quite have the confidence to end an X Men film without an extended mutant powers smackdown extravaganza.

I confess that those angles were my hope for the 'off year' movies, and if the creative histories of R1 and Untitled Han Solo Project are anything to go by that may well have been the original plan.  It's clear that R1 was headed in a different direction early on, and Lord and Miller seem to have headed off on an unexpected tangent too.

Yeah, it seems like Disney have really got cold feet on the whole 'hiring young up and coming directors and experimenting with genres' thing.
