    Someone that read the book please tell me about Rodriguez’s character. Is it good material? If this is an Oscar contender could she be?

    Not really, prepare to be disappointed, but judging by the trailer, the role of Tessa Tompson is extremely different from the book, so maybe, there is still chance for Rodrigues.

    Why? Alex Garland almost got Viklander a nomination for Ex Machina and it would have happened if it weren’t for category fraud. Natalie Portman is way not respected than her.

    1. This movie isn’t Ex Machina. People who’ve read the book/watched it have said it’s very weird and out there
    2. the release date
    3. Vikander was having a break-out year, like Chastain in 2011 and was bound to be nominated for something

    I’m sure Natalie will be great but a nomination isn’t in the cards

    If someone said the book is weird, they are right, doesn’t mean it is bad, it is a fantastic book and if the movie is any faithful to it, expect nominations for Oscar Isaac, Portman and specially Jennifer Jason Leigh, it is the kind of part Leigh plays so well that almost got her that win for ‘Hateful 8’.

    However, judging by the trailer, we have 5 characters instead of four on the expedition and unfortunately, the trailer did give away one major change from the book which in my opinion is a huge letdown, but if they keep the core of it and the editing job really lives up to the story, this has everything to be incredible. If someone happens to come across the movie’s screenplay, please let me know or I will die.

    I thought the trailer looked dumb, actually. But as a big fan of Ex Machina it’s not enough to undermine my hopes!

    Just saw the trailer, completely different from the book, congratz Garland you ruined it, what a disappointment, I can see why no one wants to get near this.

    This had several screenings and they all went good. Paramount was gonna release it this year but they fucked up by choosing Mother, Downsizing and Suburbicon and all three flopped.

    I think this looks great, but apparently David Ellison didn’t like that Portman’s character is unlikable and Garland refused to change it. So  he is ruining its chance to make money by releasing it on Netflix 17 days after release.

    At least her character seems true to the book.

    All I can say is that the trailer for this film is very misleading. Unless Alex Garland has taken extensive “artistic liberties” with the novel, this film is going to be a major disappointment to a lot of people (think Arrival). I also find it a little funny that this is being touted as “cerebral” or “intellectual.” I guess, it could be considered that for some. But, it’s no 2001: A Space Odyssey. The book is popular, but not very highly regarded.
