I was downtown Philly the other day and my wife and I couldn't help but notice
that city hall had a film crew surrounding the place.
so we stopped and i was able to get a few pics.
not much but a few cameras and the extras.

I had just missed Foxx, he was being driven away as I was
going up to the filming area, oh well.

I remember when you started this thread!

Anyway, I went to see  District 9 for a second time yesterday and saw the trailer for this film.  I CANNOT WAIT!  It looks like a pretty cool thriller and went in a totally different direction than the beginning of the trailer indicated.  At first I thought, of yea, another revenge flick, but then it got interesting. 

I hope to skip any more trailers so as not to ruin the movie for myself!  It's fun having movies to look forward to.

Rented this tonight. After all of the build up about how impossible his crimes were, am I wrong to have expected a little more? His plan consisted of: burying a guy alive with enough oxygen to last until the appointed time, car bombs set to a certain trigger, and tunnels into every cell of the solitary wing at the prison allowing him to come and go as he pleases. Somehow I expected several well-executed and cleverly planned hits before he was brought down. Instead we get two, and then the ridiculous concept that no one would have noticed him tunneling into all those cells -- and that someone with his high profile wouldn't have been under 24-hour surveillance. Gerard Butler did the best with what he had. The first half hour or so was intriguing. Otherwise, a huge disappointment that failed to deliver on the marketing premise.

Watched this last night. It was mildly entertaining -- if you think of it as a Dr. Who movie. Posted Image  The villain must've had a TARDIS the whole time, and at the end the good guys must've had one too.

 

The acting was pretty good, at least.  The extremely brutal violence was a bit of a turn-off though.

 

BTW, Adam, you forgot the customized, RPG-armed, military robot that attacked a crowded cemetery in broad daylight.  And the "there's a mysterious killer on the loose, slaughtering city officials -- let's have a meeting of the Mayor and all her advisers in an empty building protected by 1 cop at the front door" part.  Posted Image
