The Tomb will hopefully look like a bigger budget film with greater scope.

Albeit a plot lifted from Prison Break (and shades of Sly's Tango and Cash and Lock-Up).

Yes, I'm hoping so. It has potential to be a really good action movie.

An innocent guy and a not innocent guy teaming up to escape from prison is not the most recent idea in storytelling.

^But it's a prison that he designed, which comes straight from Prison Break.

I don't think that's new either. Wasn't there a Robert Redford film where he has to break out of his own prison?

No I don't think so - you are either thinking of Brubaker where he was the Governor and enters the prison as an inmate to see what conditions are like or The Last Castle where he is an inmate in a military prison who takes it over.

I think in Brubaker, Redford was the Warden, not the Governor.

He didn't design it. Stallone plays a break out artist who gets put in prisons, breaks out of them, then reports on the flaws. The prison that he is currently in is designed off of his notes. So in a way you could say he designed it, but only indirectly.

Anyways, Stallone and Schawrzenegger in a movie together? Hell yes I'm there!

^Close enough though. I mean, fair enough, he doesn't tattoo the designs all over his body either, but it's certainly reminiscent, IMHO.

Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger - The Last Stand

Came in at sixth:

Finally, Lionsgate’s The Last Stand (2,913 theaters) should demand its money back from Arnie who clearly can’t open a movie anymore making only $3M today and $11.4M for the long weekend. I don’t think that even pays for Schwarzenegger’s cigar bill.

Looks loke Arnie's drawing power is done with. They should rethink that Conan movie.

Yeah the Camaro looks out of place. But look at the height of "Arnold" there, his shoulder width, the size of his head, how the neck attaches to the torso. It looks.. odd. Like Arnold's head was poorly Photoshopped onto someone else's body.



Yeah, the poster would have been much better if they had just left that out. It's a pointless distraction that completely breaks up the atmosphere of the shot. Somehow I doubt his car is going to be a central focus of the film anyway.
Oh, for all we know it's a wacky sidekick car that always making snarky comments about the goings on.
Then again he could be standing on a slight rise as the cars wheels seem cut off a bit?
looks like it might be a fun one to watch on a Cheep movie Night.
