I predict this movie to be awesome… not just because Terrance Malick's last film is my favorite of all time. Whether it will be accepted by the masses and become commercially successful is hard to judge right now. But it has a lot going for it. Christian Bale is looking to become a household name. If you didn't realize his potential in American Psycho you must be smoking something. Christopher Nolan's new Batman movie is going to put Bale in the spotlight either way, so The New World should draw a lot of attention just for this fact. Plus, add to the fact that the last Star Wars flicks before Return the Sith were 95% shite, and the same can be said of the last few Batman flicks.
- Cue the trailers for Tim Burton's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
- and Terry Gilliam's The Brothers Grimm, which we all have HUGE expectations for.
