I hadn't been paying any attention at all to the upcoming film Legion (due in theaters January 2010) - about the efforts of the archangel Michael (Paul Bettany) as he tries to spare humanity from God's retribution - but now that I know from this Comic-Con footage that's been newly released (see below) that when I see Legion, I'll be smoking The Terminator, The Prophecy, Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight, and Exorcist III in a B-movie crack pipe, I'm so in.
Based on some of the comments I've read online about this footage, some people are put off by how generic and derivative it looks. Boy, do I feel sorry for those people. Why are so many people who are obstinately fans of horror, fantasy, and sci-fi so churlish when faced with entertainment of potentially great magnitude? I don't get it. Since when did goofy, over-the-top nonsense stop being seen as a good time? Seriously, you're going to watch this footage (beware of spoilers, by the way) and say "meh"? God help you!
Call me easily excited but whenever angels open fire on each other, I'm there. When one heavenly body blows a hole in another heavenly body, it's awesome.
