I think this movie looks pretty kick ass. I am not normally a fan and I rarely get excited about films that have obvious fake oversized wicked looking animals that will later be either your friend or foe...take your unexpected pick. Historical films or films about the future that I cannot and will not be able to ever fathom as realisitc rarely ever make my movie likes either. I admit...be prepared...that I never wanted to make it to the theater and I never got my panties in a wad about the Star Wars films, the Lord of the Rings films, or Harry Potter. I know...blasphemy is me. Get over it.
BUT! I am super stoked about the new movie 10,000 B.C. This films looks way wicked cool and interesting...to say the least. For some reason I like the word "wicked" today. Work with me.
Synopsis (from yahoo):
A young hunter is forced to lead a small group of hunters to pursue a band of mysterious warlords to the end of the world to save the girl he loves.
The above synopsis kinda lacked/sucked. So I went to the 10,000 B.C site and found a much better description:
From director Roland Emmerich (“Independence Day,” “The Day After Tomorrow”) comes a sweeping odyssey into a mythical age of prophesies and gods, when spirits rule the land and mighty mammoths shake the earth.
In a remote mountain tribe, the young hunter D’Leh (Steven Strait) has found his heart’s passion – the beautiful Evolet (Camilla Belle). But when a band of mysterious warlords raid his village and kidnap Evolet, D’Leh leads a small group of hunters to pursue the warlords to the end of the world to save her. As they venture into unknown lands for the first time, the group discovers there are civilizations beyond their own and that mankind’s reach is far greater than they ever knew. At each encounter the group is joined by other tribes who have been attacked by the slave raiders, turning D’Leh’s once-small band into an army.
Driven by destiny, the unlikely warriors must battle prehistoric predators while braving the harshest elements. At their heroic journey’s end, they uncover a lost civilization and learn their ultimate fate lies in an empire beyond imagination, where great pyramids reach into the skies.
Here they will take their stand against a tyrannical god who has brutally enslaved their own. And it is here that D’Leh finally comes to understand that he has been called to save not only Evolet but all of civilization.
Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Legendary Pictures, a Centropolis Production of a Roland Emmerich film: “10,000 BC,” starring Steven Strait, Camilla Belle and Cliff Curtis.
No wonder I think I am going to like it! It's a damn love story!
Steven Straight: Where did this little cutie come from??
And Camille Belle...Isn't she absolutely adorable??
Here is the trailer from you tube. I found one with Greek subtitles and thought it was only appropriate.
