    This looks like a good popcorn-and-coke-and-leave-your-brain-at-home cinema movie. :)

    I kind of think the trailer gives too much away though....
    Based on the bestselling comic book, Vin Diesel stars as Ray Garrison, a soldier recently killed in action and brought back to life as the superhero Bloodshot by the RST corporation. With an army of nanotechnology in his veins, he’s an unstoppable force –stronger than ever and able to heal instantly. But in controlling his body, the company has sway over his mind and memories, too. Now, Ray doesn’t know what’s real and what’s not – but he’s on a mission to find out.

    Lamorne Morris is not wearing a fabulous bird shirt, 0/10.


    Given the times we live in, that looks like the kind of genre fillter Netflix would release - whether that's a good or bad thing is up to the reader ;)

    There was actually another version of Bloodshot in the web series, Ninjak vs the Valiant Universe that looked more like the comic.

    Looks like a fun time I must admit.

    Sounds like Universal Soldier basically.

    International trailer feels more action..ey

    I watched some of the trailer then looked like it was getting into the latter parts of the film so stopped.

    Was reading about this and other Valiant IP last week. Seems there are a few films in the works, but I wouldn't expect a Valiant-verse as it seems different properties are with different studios.

    When will be released?

  • Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 55,246 Mod ✭✭✭✭Mr E

    IMDB says February 2020.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,494 ✭✭✭✭Slydice

    Solid release date for a newcomer. Reminds me of the deadpool release strategy. Although.. I can't imagine Vin Diesel doing a bunch of in-character viral videos like Reynolds did :)

    No kidding! They gave away what I'd have thought was a major plot twist.

    Still, Murder on the Orient express this is not.

    Trailer 1 felt like it laid down the "What's the story?"
    Trailer 2 feels like it's focusing a little more on the action

    Given the well publicised in-fighting between Diesel and Johnson on the Fast & Furious franchise, over who was the nominal star, this may be instructive to Vin as to just how box-office he truly is :D

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,494 ✭✭✭✭Slydice

    This doesn't feel proper Vin though..

    not Pitch Black or Fast/Furious Vin.

    Bit more vocab than MCU Vin all the same.

    When is this due out? It would not surprise me if this was put back too just like Bond 25.

    Live long and Prosper

    Peace and long life.

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,494 ✭✭✭✭Slydice

    I think this will continue to release because Sony own it. They have the cash reserves for it.

    From what I understand, MGM have.. well.. Bond.. James Bond :D so they need that cash

    Wiki says it's out next week here and in the States, but I see there are cams available online.
    Looking at imdb it was due for release in Hong Kong, India, Germany and Spain by now

    Saw this earlier in a near empty cinema. Actually was a lot better than I thought it'd be. Some ropey dialogue for sure but it zipped along at a good clip and it was never boring.

    This is joining the other films getting an early digital release starting next week
