Prey (latest attempt to do something, anything with the Predator IP) is out Friday on Disney+

Netflix has a new film our Friday from Jung Byung-gil, who directed The Villainess, which I know had some fans on here

ah crap, I forgot about Prey, stupid it’s been dumped on streaming, it seems to be getting pretty good buzz and there’s barely anything out this month here or in the US

Road House is basically a perfect film but Jake and Doug Liman together makes me actually quite up for this

None of them have the hair for it

I still haven’t really worked out why Disney wanted to buy 20th Century Fox.

It seems like they’ve just used its back catalogue and future material as online filler and the only real ‘winners’ from it are Marvel Studios getting back control of all those characters and Star Wars (another thing Disney have mostly squandered) being finally and totally under a single roof.

Wha?

If Disney+ only had Disney IP I would cancel my sub right now.

The stuff I’ve binged is all non-Disney.

Without that extra content they’re only of interest to wealthier families and adult nerds. The rest gives them mainstream appeal

It also I reckon prevents people becoming fatigued by Disney output (and reduces the need to be making content quite so quickly)

Just expected more in the area of cinema I guess.

But it’s true that your D+ sub is balancing the books on whatever they paid :wink:

I suspect they’ll be very very picky with what gets rebooted/picked up from that IP. Aliens was obvious because it fits with the crowd etc

See also Prey

Yeah buzz has been good from what i’ve absorbed. Opposite for Bullet Train.

Seems to be an awful lot lately going off Netflix lately and hardly anything being added!
