O yeah… I'm down!George said:Looks to be pretty dang crazy... P-40's and stuff out of Popular Science... I'm there opening night.
The P40s are kinda '40s-ish, but the mise en scène is more '30s, and some of the sets are straight outta Fritz Lang in the '20s.
Of course in just watching the trailer I caught several quotes… including a li'l bit of George Pal's 1953 version of War of the Worlds (which Spielberg is re-making for sometime next year).
I'm excited! (Although I'm a bit disappointed to discover that they're doing an Ed Wood/Bela Lugosi deal with Laurence Olivier who's been dead for more than 15 years already!)
And speaking of Olivier and aeroplanes and films which actually came from that era, if you get a chance to see 1939's Q Planes (a/k/a Clouds Over Europe as it runs on cable channels here) with Valerie Hobson and Ralph Richardson looking every bit as dashing as young Larry, don't miss it!
