Warrior.

Whoa, just realized Theron was minus an arm!

I'm having mixed feelings about this. While I'm glad to see this series return (although would have preferred a sequel in the same universe over a reboot), it's looking to copy the worst of the 3 films...

The images just invoke the feeling in me that this will be a cross between 2 & 3. While 2 was good (not as good as 1), 3 was most definitely the worst of the trilogy. It traded in the drama and emotion for cheap laughs and a PG-13 rating. Another PG-13 flick is not going to cut it.

OK, that was quick! Warrior is going in the queue! Thanks!

Looking at IMDB, the only thing on his resume that looks interesting is Inception, which I still have to get around to. For those who have such high respect for him, what movies would you recommend?

Bronson is the first thing I saw him in and he knocked it out of the park.

Agreed. One of the first things I saw him in, too. That's immediately what I thought of when I heard he'd been cast as Bane.

His performance in Bronson was off the hook, much like Eric Bana in Chopper. Both of which had roles in Black Hawk Down. Can't wait for this to be released. I'm a huge fan of this trilogy... and BMX Bandits. LMAO

It was a bullshit ending though that ruined it for me.

OK. Enjoyed both Lawless and Warrior. Fun movies, but nothing special. Shia kind of killed Lawless for me. Warrior was much better, but Nolte stole the show acting wise for me. I can however see Hardy fitting into the role of Mad Max now though, as long as he doesn't play it too stiff. Liked his acting better in Lawless, but the fight scenes in Warrior were great.

Bronson sucked. Not a dig on Hardy, but the movie was just way too long and stupid. Would much rather have watched a 30 minute documentary. Felt like a Clockwork Orange wannabe, just boring as hell.

Holy cow, when this is released it will be 30 years since Beyond Thunderdome.

What's the record for longest time between sequels ?
