    Does the world really need another one of these? I think not.

    I liked the first two, so I'm up for this.

    Was Tucker not supposed to have "quit Hollywood" to save children in Africa?

    I can think of at least 20 million reasons why he won't quit hollywood.

    Well, Jackie's only doing this one for the money. Even he hates the movies.

    He should make some nice money, though, since he'll own the rights to it in China/HK. [​IMG]

    Before a single frame has been shot, Rush Hour 3 will cost $40 million!?

    I just hope they find a way for Chris Penn's
    character to do some sort of cameo. [​IMG]

    I had heard that Chris Tucker wanted some outragous amount of money, like twice Jackie Chan's salary... Was'nt he the highest paid African American for a while at 20 mill?

    Tucker got 20m (?!?!?!?!?!?!) against 20% of the gross, Chan got 15/15, and Ratner got 7/7. If the film does not get made, Tucker and Chan will still get paid. I'm not certain about Ratner. I'm waiting for some kind of explanation that REMOTELY justifies Tucker's paycheck.

    He is a big box office draw (at least in association with this title) and the movie is expected to make a boatload of $$$ thanks to him? Like it or not, this series has been immensely succesful so far.

    Without Tucker, chance are this would be "just another Jackie Chan flick", and those gross nowhere close to what Rush Hour brings in.

    While I haven't seen the sequel, I remember enjoying the original. The formula isn't very difficult to replicate, and looking the numbers, it works. From a studio point of view, until it gets stale (part deux made 200+M, we're not there yet...), this is as close to risk-free as they come.

    this will make bank, count on it. If tucker had NOT signed on, then it would flop.

    Could that be any worse of a way to download a trailer? Sheesh.

    I've uploaded the 640 .mov file to my website for easier downloading for people. [​IMG]

    I'm vaguely disturbed that Ratner now warrants a "A Brett Ratner Film" above the title. I seriously doubt he's a household name.

    Huh. I can't remember the last time I've seen a trailer with so much voiceover guy participation.

    Maybe they did the opposite approach and left all the funny parts out of the trailer. [​IMG]

    Eh, I'll probably still see it.

    I liked the first one, tolerated the second one and have absolutely NO desire to see the third one. It looks beyond horrible and proves that Brett Ratner is the biggest hack working in Hollywood today. Now excuse me while I go perform a home labotomy to get that trailer out of my head.
