So...we're getting a Shadowrun film?
So are the orcs aware that they're just forcefully mutated elves, or are they like asexual Warhammer spore people?

It is difficult to put into words how stupid this looks.
How in the world do you look at this and think Suicide Squad before Alien Nation?
I don't see a trace of Suicide Squad in this, but what do I know
I just got the same vibe from it.
Smith reprises his role as the grizzled cynical veteran with a gun.
Blonde white girl as side heroine.
magical powers = super powers, as far as I care.
grimdark superhero land switched for grimdark fantasy land

For what it's worth I thought Will Smith was one of the better things in suicide squad. How can you not love it when the gun turns from hate to love?
Suicide Squad was brilliant. Unfortunately the film's reputation was destroyed by Marvel fanboys.
come on, it wasn't brilliant.
it was hints of decent movie re-edited to fit what some bean-counters thought would sell better.
Any good setup in the movie was ruined by the "now go fight a wizard" plot
The Red Letter Media review of Suicide Squad is worth a watch. They say that the edits/reshoots were done by a company that usually does trailers, which does a lot to explain the pacing/soundtrack of it.
But yeah, this seems like a weird Shadowrun ripoff, minus the William Gibson aspect.
I had a would-be roommate who made me read a script of his that was more or less this, except with more Mage: The Ascension stuff involved.
Also he seems to have fallen off the planet so I bet he's in jail or dead from a FetLife scene gone wrong.
As bad as movies are these days, this is the first trailer in a while where I felt embarrassment while watching.
I am calling it now, Jupiter Ascending is better than this.
