Pitt's still hotter, but Cumberbatch has a voice that makes women want to sit on their surround sound speakers.

He really does.  Tell you what, I'll take Pitt but dub him over with Cumberbatch and/or Alan Rickman.  That would be just fine.

They secretly replaced Ricardo Montalban with Benedict Cumberbatch, and it didn't take a Trekker long to realize it.

You'd be surprised how hard it was to find a decent picture of Brad Pitt with his mouth open.

Indeed it is. Great read in fact.

Benedict

Such a strong Latin name

I wonder if one would be shunned in their community in the USA if one named their child that

I work with a Benedict.  Fortunately for him, kids these days are too stupid to know any US history, so he doesn't have any problems.

This is a fantastic book and a great read. Cumberbatch looks like a Victorian-era explorer, so I'm ok with this.

Also, the character was one of the inspirations for Indiana Jones.

As a fan of Roger Zelazny's "Amber" series, I'd approve of that name....

Pics or it didn't happen?

From the FTA: "'Lost City of Z' is based on David Grann's non-fiction account of British explorer Percy Fawcett and his obsession with finding the disappeared city of the title in the South American jungle."

Just get that hack JJ Abram's fingers off this promising actor's career. He's already half drowned in shiat from Star Trek.

Heh...get Benedict Cumonbiatch to redo all of Pitt's lines from Snatch.

I think they removed Brad Pitt because a movie named "Lost City of Z" starring Brad Pitt would be confused as a "World War Z" sequel.

Lsherm: I just got done reading The Lost City of Z.  Fascinating book.


Very good read.  All the talk about parasitic infections made my skin crawl for a week though.  Not really sure how the book will translate into a movie, but I'll give it a go regardless of who's in it just because I liked the book that much.

That's a hell of shiatfit for no reason. Are you insecure about enjoying Michael Bay level dreck? Dude, just turn your brain off and start shoveling the corn. It's just entertainment.

Nope, I'm still not going to watch that insipid non"WWZ" adaptation.

Cumberbatch seems kinda funny looking in the image they chose for the article. He might be a better choice for the role. With Pitt in the saddle, I think the movie might feel more like Mosquito Coast

Brian Blessed's Bastard Boy: Lsherm: I just got done reading The Lost City of Z.  Fascinating book.

They'll just give it the "epic" formula they've been using for the past 50 years.  Frame the Fawcett story in the modern day with a journalist looking into his disappearance and then flashback to the Fawcett expedition, then tidy up the ending with a flashforward back to the journalist.

I suspect the entire movie will be about Fawcett.
 
2013-09-05 06:30:37 AM
Yeah, I imagine the confusion of having Brad Pitt star in another movie with "Z" featured prominently in the title might have been rather extreme.

Especially since the last one was kinda not good.

I recently finally watched Into Darkness. Now, I'm not a "trekkie" by any means, but I knew there was a character called Khan. I did not know it was the villain in the new one.

When it came to the scene where he said his name... it sounded like he said "kye". "my name is.... *dun dun dun*.... KYE"

...oh
...that's... certainly something

It wasn't until later that I heard it again and they said it properly as Khan. Other than his pronunciation problems, he's a great villain. And I think it's good he won't be playing in Star Wars. You can't do both. It would look dumb.

I really dug his performance, but yeah he was no Khan Noonien Singh. Should have come up with another Augment supervillain for him to play.

Yes I said Augment. That arc of Enterprise ruled.

I wish they'd continue the Karla series after tinker tailor with the same actors but I'm not holding my breath

Getting a kick out of this since I went to a double feature last night of Star Trek Into Darkness and World War Z
 
2013-09-05 09:42:13 AM
So is this a sequel to World War Z?

That's sort of their thing.

I'd never seen Benedict until Star Trek into Darkness a few days ago.  I swear my BOSE speakers went into orgasm during his speech in the Enterprise "jail".  I concur with your statement.

Sherlock Holmes, now Khaaaaaan! (Dammit somebody beat to it!)

He's really on the up tick. He may have an Oscar before the years out or else be over-exposed and playing Dick Whittington's cat in the Pantos at Christmas. I sorta hope it's the former because I really enjoyed Sherlock Holmes. Watson was played by Frodo the Hobbit. No, not that one. The new one.

Even if Sherlock is not really a psychopath nor a sociopath (they mean the same thing, as a psychologist pointed out in an interesting blog post), he is high-functioning autistic and Bandersnatch there did a great job. In fact, I think I'll learn his name before the week is out.

Pitt is too pretty. I like my men gawky and socially awkward. Cumberbatch definitely makes the cut.
