Today we are going to talk about “Prototype” and no not the games, sorry gamers. Today we talk about the two (yes two, not one) upcoming films in 2013. And yes both of them are called Prototype. As it seems Hollywood always liked to make multiple movies with similar or identical titles with different stories. Armageddon vs. Deep Impact, A Bug’s Life vs. Antz or even Jurassic Park vs. the infamous Carnosaur. The ones who saw It know what I mean. Well now in 2013 we are getting two movies named the same way and nearly the same in general.
1) The Prototype 2013
The military tries to track down a humanoid drone that escapes from a government facility.
To me it looks pretty awesome, although when I first saw it I thought I’m watching a rip-off from Hellboy mixed with other stuff. Yes I’m talking about the dude with dust for blood bla bla bla.
Still the whole premise looks interesting; in a sense I feel we all can imagine how the story is going to unfold. Near somewhere to Ghost in the Shell type scenario. But who knows. We might get surprised.
Well the movie is in Post-production now so let’s all keep are fingers crossed that it won’t end up being a total Cluster-fuck.
2) The Prototype 2013
A government agent stumbles upon an alien conspiracy to conquer earth. Using a blue liquid made by the aliens to make soldiers stronger, he becomes The Prototype-the only hope for mankind.
Had to be conspiracies and aliens. It just had to be. And in the mix super-soldiers. I think we all know where this is going. So for this one unfortunately I do not have as much hope as for the other one. But who knows. This also appears to be in post-production right now.
It may look to be on a lower budget but that never is an issue if you have a great story and hopefully great people to give life to it.
We will know in 2013.
Oh and btw 🙂 Merry Christmas to all who are waiting for it 🙂
