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!!
I like that they can depart from the mythos, or add to it. I’d hate to watch a rehash origin story.

I had to stop reading the comments. It took all my effort to not reply on the endless stupidity of the comments.
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.
Would one have been correct in describing Return of the Jedi as "generic" and "is this a prequel to Riddick?"
No, that's a very weak comment. Not nearly harsh enough for internet 1983.

I'm convinced there never would have been an Empire Strikes Back or Return of the Jedi if the internet existed when Star Wars came out.

Went to cinema yesterday to watch Farmageddon, and asked the manager about Bloodshot.
He had not seen the trailer, I said the film will be released in Feb.
He said it should premier in Uk around Easter then,

Two month wait, while you guys chat about it.
nb ~ no I don't have amazon tv, or netflicks.
I wish their was a Spinal Tap comic, and I had a copy CGC graded at 11.

I get what they were going for with the U.S. trailer and it almost works. Except it doesn't. Everything comes off far too generic.

The international trailer more clearly provides both intrigue and explanation of the character making it seem less of "just another Vin Diesel movie."

In the trailer when Bloodshot wakes up in a building the name on top of the building is “R.S.T.” Shouldn’t this actually be “P.R.S.” (Project Rising Spirit)?

My guess is:

Rising
Spirit
Technologies

Which makes sense, as the name is more in line with Defense Contractor company names (e.g. CACI, L3 Technologies, or BAE Systems) as opposed to a “Project” which appears more temporary in nature.

When watching the International trailer, at the very end,I can’t understand what the two guys in the car say just before Bloodshot draws the mouth of the smiley face from the snow on the windshield. Can anyone make out their dialog?

I think both trailers are great for different reasons. The replaying/skipping of the song is clearly conceptually tied to the theme of the false memories constantly rebooting his mind. Works great for me.

I am also a fan of the way he is designed for the movie so far - the glowing chest circle is kinda reminiscent of the extremis effects in Iron Man 3, which I like. I don't need to see him look just like the comic, but I am expecting to see more of his 'traditional' look since they've said it will be present in the full film.

All the online *SQUEE* about this [elsewhere] is quite tiresome to behold, I must say. People can never seem to to grasp that no one owes you anything just because you have a sense of entitlement and/or unmovable personal expectations. Keep the expectations & entitlement in check, and evaluate the thing objectively based on its own merits or flaws.

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.
I hope that we really do get to see more white-skinned Bloodshot than we did in the trailer. The trailer genuinely looked like a top-quality film, but it did leave me disappointed that the signature look was almost nowhere to be seen :(

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!

Bump...

Everyone see the latest trailer? Lots more "comics accurate" looking shots in this one. Overall i thought the first trailer was more interesting though.
