I am, for the first time ever
, actually hyped for a film from the MCU. Three reasons:
1. Taika Waititi directed it.
2. Jeff Goldblum is in it as Jeff Goldblum: 80s Retro Club Makeup Edition.
3. THEY GOT FUCKING TAIKA WAITITI, THE DUDE WHO DID WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS
, TO DIRECT IT.
Honourable mentions to Cate Blanchett looking fine AF in leather and her emo makeup. And and and Idris Elba apparently has long hair in this, which I am game for. I usually hate longish hair on dudes, but come on, it's Driis. Driis can do what he fucking wants.
(Is anyone else hyped for the Dark Tower film? McConaughey irritates the ever-loving shit out of me, but am going to suck it up and go see the film anyway because I am desperate for that franchise to succeed.)
But yeah, I'll actually make the effort to see this one in cinemas, which is a total 180 for me given my love/hate relationship with the MCU as a whole. WHO ELSE IS HYPED, COME OOOOOOON.
