    Default New Movie Condemned = Battle Royale?

    Well I was just watching TV and i saw a trailer for the Movie Condemned(sp?) and its about a guy who pulls 10 death row inmates off of death row, gives them weapons, sends them to kill each other until only one remains, and it was on TV and people were betting on it and watching it. Now i only read the Tokyopop version, where the program was a tv show, but does anyone else think it might be loosely based off of BR at all?

    I think I read somewhere that New Line bought Battle Royale~ and Monster.

    Also heard Astro Boy movie will be coming out.

    Yes, it's Battle Royale, basically.

    It's also The Running Man. And a host of other similar films.

    I'm going to see it for the Battle Royale angle. Looks terrible, but I think it'll be entertaining.

    Keep in mind, this isn't the actual Battle Royale remake. That one is still a couple of years off.

    The New Line Cinema remake of BR will be out some time in 2008, I believe.

    Fuck Battle Royale. It scarred me. I absolutely hate it. The author is one fucked up person.

    well in several perspectives it could be considered as realistic. but still the manga may be fucked up but so is the world. about the movie, it will probably suck.

    ^^^
    I think how the story was presented was good, but I absolutely hate the story.

    The art quality is really good. Overall I think it has everything needed for a good to great manga, I just absolutely hate the premise behind the story. Can't stand it, it's a little to messed up for me.

    Also the main bad kid was waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyy too overpowered. A fucking bomb blows up right next to him and he's able to escape it by jumping into the cab of a truck that was a good 5-10 feet away. Bull Shit. He then gets shot in the chin and neck, stuff that is usually fatal. If it isn't then you are incapacitated till you die. What does he do, he's still able to stand and fire off semi-accurate shots. Bull Shit.

    Done with ranting.

    I adore the premise, myself. I think it's a brilliant concept.

    Read the book, it's much better.
