NEWS: Cage, Indiana Jones, Neeson ‘Not A Fan’ Of Superhero Films


It appears that Nicolas Cage may engage in some on-screen trolling again soon.   Wally’s Wonderland stars Cage as a janitor at an amusement park who ends up having to deal with some demonic animatronics, and a first look image from the flick has found its way online.


Liam Neeson is, unsurprisingly, not a fan of plot-free superhero movies where CGI cities get destroyed after three hours of monotony.  Here is what he tells ET this week:

“I’m really not a huge fan of the genre. I think it’s Hollywood with all the bells and whistles and the technical achievements and stuff – which I admire – but I have no desire to go into the gym for three hours every day to pump myself up to squeeze into a Velcro suit with a cape.

It’s just not my genre, it really isn’t. The first ‘Star Wars,’ I was in that, that was 22 years ago, and I enjoyed that, because it was novel and that was new. I was acting to tennis balls, which were ultimately going to be little fuzzy furry creatures and stuff. That was interesting, acting-wise, to try and make that seem real, but that was the last. It’s quite exhausting.”

Although, no need to go into the gym for three hours anymore.  Even the muscles are CGI now.


Harrison Ford is one of these old guys who is pissing on his own legacy… what the fuck was he thinking in ruining the Han Solo character with those new Star Wars cash-ins?  That also sort of includes Indiana Jones 4, otherwise known as the one that shall not be mentioned.

Speaking with HeyUGuys this week, Ford is keen to make amends with a fifth movie…

“I don’t really want to give them [the audience] what they want to see, I want to give them something they didn’t anticipate. They are used to a degree of disappointment when you revisit. Certainly, the Marvel movies have made a spectacular example of a success [that] worked the other way around. They killed it! Well, we’re not going to make another Indiana Jones unless we are in a position to kill it. We want it to be the best…We’ve got some scheduling issues and a few script things to do, but we are determined to get it right before we get it made.”

‘Something they don’t anticipate’ is questionable, these retro sequels should pursue nostalgia.  Nobody wants to see fucking aliens in an Indiana Jones movie.  Maybe Ford should hang up the whip…
