Ratner, eh? I'll have to take a "wait and see" on this one. I have found that between Spartacus and Game of Thrones that it's a lot harder for these films to impress me now. I found (nu)Conan and (nu)Clash of the Titans to be colorless and blah but was really surprised to see The Scorpion King the other night and found it enjoyable as just bright dumb fun. If they are going to go some kind of darker route they better bring their "A" game.
