New Punisher shtuff!

07.25.2008

We'll be giving you guys more on THE PUNISHER: WAR ZONE panel that took place during Thursday Comic Con in a little while, but for now, SuperheroHype has been given the first look at the poster for the film (click the small version on the right to see it enlarged), while IGN has been given the rights to show the 2-minute age-restricted "trailer", which to me, looks a hell of a lot like our very own John Fallon's DEADEN trailer/movie, only with a much bigger budget, of course... They were both filmed in the same city of Montreal. Anyway, this trailer actually does showcase a lot more action, and doesn't feature any shots of Punisher setting up fake fire hydrants, so who knows, maybe it won't turn out so bad. This next installment of the PUNISHER franchise is set for release on December 5th, 2008.

Extra Tidbit: Seems like a wholly non-American movie, with the director born in Germany, the star born in Ireland and the baddie born in England.

Thomas Jane was a good Frank Castle, it was just that the script, locale (the Florida wastelands?!?), villain, and director all sucked.

This thing looks like a really bad Czechoslovakian knock-off. Complete with really bad metal music, and lots of exploding heads. Depending on what comes out around the same time as this, I may or may not see it.

Looks like total shit. The song sucked, the footage sucked. I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in seeing this. No Thomas Jane, no Punisher.

Looks cool. The upside down hanging spinning shooting scene looks like its directly lifted from The Boondock Saints though.

I like Thomas Jane as much as the next guy...but how in the hell after watching that trailer can you even think to compare the two? If any of you need to acquaint yourselves with Mr. Stevenson go watch some "Rome" and watch Pullo beat the ever living hell out of people.

They couldn't have picked a better person to replace Jane, IMO.

NOW THAT IS DA SHIT!

C'mon people...don't tell me you didn't love that new trailer! I like Thomas Jane as an actor and all but just take a look at this new dude! He's f*ckin' insane! Jigsaw looks creepy as hell and I love the fact that Lexi Alexander takes the dark tone this far without having to copy The Dark Knight. It shows that she really put some thought into the film and respected the source material. Thomas Jane is a nice guy, but his Punisher did very little punishing. You lose your family and especially

You lose your family and especially your kid to some murderer and this is the f*ckin' result of it! Now I'm hyped and I'm gonna' see this thing the first chance I get. THIS is The Punisher we deserve! And this is only the cinematic release...wait till' the Unrated DVD hits and I'm sure there's one already in the works!

Well Shit. I'm sold. The song sucked, but the action seemed brutal, which is what the Punisher is all about. Jigsaw looked cool as shit. I'm down.

muh

This doesn't make me all that excited for the movie. I love Frank Castle and the MAX Punisher title but the trailer just didn't make me care about this movie. That doesn't mean I won't see it though. I should add I love the Thomas Jane one.

The last Punisher was bland. Thomas Jane is a cool guy, yaya, but he wasn't that good as Frank Castle.

Looks like this one will be much more visually stunning and hopefully more faithful to the comic. Oh, and this guy actually looks like Frank Castle.

Plays like a Grindhouse trailer...

...crossed with a music video. The shots with the damaged film just strike me as kind of odd. Well, I can't say much more about it other than there are those exploding heads Lexi Alexander promised us.

yeah, i dont get the love for the Thomas Jane Punisher. the movie sucked. plain and simple. Jane wasnt bad but the film wasnt good and they went in another direction.....anyway, i second the notion of renting 'Rome'. that show was the shit.

No Thomas Jane, no Punisher.

I'm still holding out just a smidgen of hope for his return to the franchise at some point in the future. Maybe some passionate independent film maker will continue the franchise where TJ's Punisher film left off and will continue that storyline. We can hope, can't we?

RE: tidbit

Who cares... By that litmus, Batman Begins is wholly Non-American, and The Dark Knight is Mostly Un-American. Catwoman? Wholly American.

RE: Jack's comment. Rent "Rome" and you'll appreciate the new guy. I love Jane, but he'd be eaten for breakfast.

I have to say through out every picture that was released i was not a fan of this new guy, but the trailer looked okay. He's no Tom Jane(who is in fact The Man) but he does look a bit like Leonardo Fernandez and Doug Braithwaite's versions which I love.

I've been a huge supporter of this movie for a while, but this just reaffirms by belief that this is going to be fucking phenomenal. Here's to hope!
