I don’t go to the movies a ton anymore, but I can say (pretending I’m not a valiant fan here) this is a trailer that would make me interested enough to possibly see in a theatre and definitely stream at some point on demand.

I like the idea of Rai as a connecting movie now that harbinger is at Paramount. Making connections across that span of time (eternal brothers come to mind as playing into this possibly) would make for a more unique shared movie universe than what is out there now.

At this point I might feel obligated to say I liked the trailer even if I didn't, but I am relieved and excited to say I really, honestly think the trailer looks great. It looks like the movie will have its own unique space within the superhero and action genres, just as Dinesh promised. It looks like it's going to be a smart film without sacrificing any action, and that makes me happy.

I have mixed feelings. The movie dkesn't look interesting to me in the least. I always thought the best thing about Bloodshot was his visual design and looks lkke it will mostly not be there. The action looks standard and the bad guy with the cyborg arm ghings looks ridiculous.

That being said, a couple of movie news/review youtubers i follow seemed to really dig it, though they weren't familiar with Bloodshot or Valiant comics. If the film is a commercial success and just not my cup of tea i will still be really happy for Valiant.

The trailers look great! I like that the vibe is as much sci-fi as it is superhero.

Wow I admit I was skeptical but this looks cool. From the trailer it looks like a good mix of Bourne Identity with Philip K. Dick "what is real" sci-fi, if done right it's always a crowd-pleaser. Would have really loved to see at least one money shot of Vin in a full Bloodshot superhero pose. Too bad the comics aren't written this well hah :lol:

Word was Axe is a character in the film, but Chainsaw is the enemy, I believe.

My only concern is people will just see this as another Vin Diesel action movie versus a Bloodshot movie if he doesn’t have anything that distinguishes him as Bloodshot.

It is hard to tell at this point based on a trailer.
Pasty white with red eyes at the 2:12 mark of the trailer:

Red circle on his chest (under his ribcage?) at the 1:12 mark of the trailer:

Thanks Greg. I didn’t catch the pasty look. I thought the red chest was him getting shot and the nanites repairing him, but maybe it is the red circle on his chest.
It appears to me that the red light is UNDER his ribs and its glowing due to it repairing him from the shots.
I just hope some dont think the red circle he normally wears will be a knock off from Iron Man.
Hes wearing a white suit with big white dot. Wonder if the nanites "bond" the suit to him making his skin white and changing the dot to red.

Dino, u should read the comments in the youtube trailer and only use the international trailer in the USA. It's a much better trailer.

I had to stop reading the comments. It took all my effort to not reply on the endless stupidity of the comments. So many comments about spoiling the movie or Vin Diesel being Vin Diesel.

I just hope it gets great reviews and is as brilliant as we hope. The trailer looks fantastic and has me excited.

Can't really blame them though. That's the beauty and aim of the trailer.

The thin line between actual and false memory.

The thin line between knowing what's going on and actually having no clue.

There's a reason they hired Guy Pearce from Memento (for the opposite role). Genius!


Here's a very interesting article from Oct 21:

https://www.inverse.com/article/60302-b ... t-universe
That affinity for bleeding-edge tech extends beyond the film’s plot and into its visual effects. Bloodshot’s distinctive white skin and red eyes from the comics will feature in the film; Diesel’s look will be completed through visual effects still in development, which is why it’s not in the trailer. Thee goal of achieving that look that allowed Wilson to nerd out about bridging the gap between scientific realism and comic book madness.

This is incredible. Looks fantastic. Would love to have a series of movies that focus squarely on Bloodshot, and involving the same production crew. I am way over the Harbinger movie crossover situation right now, because this Bloodshot film looks to be the real deal.

I'm still convinced that Return of the Jedi would have been absolutely destroyed if internet comments were possible in 1983. "They put teddy bears in Star Wars and the big finale of the trilogy is that they blew up the Death Star... again?!?"

Nothing would have survived this weird social experiment in giving everyone a microphone and an anonymous username in the comment section.

a scientific explanation as to why Bloodshot goes white?

YUP!

This is brilliantly put!
I can’t just put a red dot on his chest, I have to have a reason why that exists,” he says. There have been few and far explanations in the comics, so Wilson found a reason in how the human body actually behaves.

“When someone says you’ve seen a ghost, that happens because in a stressful situation, your body suppresses non-vital functions. Your body is in fight or flight mode. You’re gonna punch someone in the face or you’re going to run away. Your skin goes pale because in keeping blood flowing to the skin is not a vital function at that moment in time. The nanites are overclocking all your body’s functions. That is why his skin goes pale.
Totally makes sense!!
