    With today's tragedy, another image that I've seen recently flashed into my mind. In the trailer of "The Core" there's a crash landing of the space shuttle. With the sad events that occured today, I wonder what they'll do with the movie? It would be in bad taste to not delay the opening. Any thoughts?

    Really? I didn't realize there was a scene like that in The Core. Look at the change in The Time Machine and the Spiderman trailer. Will they remove the scene to keep their opening?

    I sure hope they do NOT delay or edit anything.

    Hello all. Actually, The Core has already been delayed once. I remember we had trailers and posters for it last year at the theatre and it got pushed back. It would be interesting if Paramount pushes it back again, but it may be a good thing to do considering the tragedy.

    Well, the focus of the movie is that they're going inside the Earth, which is the exact opposite of outer space, so I'm going to guess that they'll most likely just pull the trailer and downplay that one scene.

    When does it open, anyway?

    It would be nice to see this turkey delayed indefinitely. It would be the only good thing to come out of this tragedy.

    THE CORE????

    This is the Plot (No Spoilers)

    Scientists discover that the Earth's core is about to stop spinning. This will cause tremendous natural disasters, wiping out life as we know it. A team of scientists is recruited in a crash project to send a ship and bomb into the center of the Earth to prevent the catastrophe.

    WHAT ARE THEY CRAZY MAKING THIS MOVIE????

    Haven't they seen Armageddon, putting a bomb will blow the earth in pieces!!!

    No seriously this movie has the worst plot since VOLCANO!!
    I wonder what Space Shuttle has to do with this, I don't think it could be used to go inside the earth, Anyway this is going to be a BOMB, no wonder nobody signed up for this except HILARY SWANK and DELROY LINDO.

    The budget for this movie is $60 MIL, man someone was smoking some serious shit here.

    See they thinking all wrong, Maybe instead of doing this ACTION THRILLER DRAMA, they could do COMEDY SPOOF of ARMAGEDDON!! maybe it would make more money???

    The only good thing to come out of this, Is HILARY SWANK in Airforce Uniform, man she is smoking in that skirt.

    I just love the trailer, they are sitting in the room (Just like in Armageddon) and the scientist explain that the core has stop spinning, so it will create radiation, microwave storms, and it will burn the planet, and than he says after that it gets bad... WTF??? standard movie cliche!!!! Even Jerry Bruckheimer kept his name off this one!!

    And I'm an Armageddon FAN!!!!

    Hopefully they'll edit it down to zero minutes and cut their losses while they are still ahead. The Core looks like it could make even Star Trek Nemesis a masterpiece in comparison.

    Real life situations should not decide when a movie should come out. Its a movie!

    It sounds like an uninteresting semi-remake of 1965's "Crack in the World."

    How about waiting to see the film before trashing it? I'm not saying it's gonna be a masterpiece but c'mon! Have any of you guys seen it?
