Trailer for the new (CGI) version of Captain Scarlet has been released, very nice, I wonder how long we will have to wait to see it?

I also saw the new Thunderbirds movie on Friday (err via BitTorrent (nice visualisation of how it work (from Plasticbag.org)) and SuprNova), not what I was expecting, I thought I would be getting a live action high budget version of the TV show, but what I got whas a fairly standard kids film. Rebellious teen that think Parents are still treating them as a child, Bad guy attacks island, adult get captured, kid plus friends are the only ones left, They run around, annoying the bad guys, head bad guy trys to turn the teen, teen saves the day, teen plus parents make up, parent starts to treat teen like an adult. This is not to say it's a bad film, just I was expecting more of the Thunderbirds, they hardly feature at all, like they were shoe horned into the plot to make it a Thunderbirds film.


Also not really Gerry Anderson related but mecha based none the less, looks like they are doing a Live Action Transformers, just one thing they should hire they guy that did the Transformers breakdance music video, they would do a nice job I'm sure.

Re: expecting more

Having slagged it off, I should say Lady P and Parker are very good (and have most of the good lines), and what little of the Thunderbirds you do see looks cool (the redesign of the craft has been respectful).

Maybe they just wanted to (re)introduces International Rescue to people and the next film will be what I was expecting this time around or maybe I should go on amazon an order the whole TV series on DVD.
