      As someone who was part of the first one of these - it's a pretty cool process seeing your script go to the big screen. I don't like this premise at all - but interested to see what they end up cobbling together.

      I'll be lurking in TB chat from 6pm, this Fri, L.A time (PTZ).Which is 08:00 in Thailand on Saturday and +7hrs GMT. I now have a headache ;)

    4. Nic.Lishko


      ooooohhhh. Gotcha!

  13. 'Thailand’s military government approves plans to create financial incentives that attract foreign films to shoot in the country..' has the Thai tourist board seen the 'No Escape' trailer? ;) https://goo.gl/wP8Ji9

    1. adlocke


      yup, that pretty much sums up what visiting a foreign country is like.

    2. adlocke


      especially the part where the helicopter you think is coming to save you is actually the bad guys.

    3. Nic.Lishko


      That trailer actually has me intrigued. I'd see that flick.

  14. Anyone tried this spec site? http://www.spekkter.com/

    1. RobertCornero


      Looks like it applies the whole Tinder/Swipe Right thing to loglines. Better make sure your logline is killer, if you're going to use this.


      Also, Apple only? It's 2015. Android has 81% market share. I mean, there's not even a web interface. Come on.

  15. Somebody, somewhere is prob writing this...#FastToTheFuture http://go.ign.com/jU199T4 ;)

  16. Alicia Vikander was flawless and made for great A.I in Ex Machina. A great script to screen.

    1. axalon


      I'm jealous that you Brits get to see it way earlier than us!


      The more I think about the more I dig the ending.

    2. Foz90


      Really good film. Like the way the 'chauffeur' role is cut down completely in the final film. A couple of lines and bam! We're in the house.

  17. @KingsmanMovie was kickass crazy spy spoof explosive action fun. Some great set pieces and cast.

    1. benskelly2


      That's what I've heard, anxious to see it. I'm an old school Bond fan who can't stand this scowling depressed crying haunted Bond we have now. Hello? It's an ACTION SERIES. Escapism. Can't wait till the fugly thug is gone.

      Was wondering about that. Good to hear.


    3. Nic.Lishko


      That trailer had me hooked. Can't wait to see it!

      Overall the episode was good but there were so many heavy-handed moments.

    3. markerstone


      It warranted a second episode-- really looking forward to Salem.

    4. sbbn


      Got around to watching it and have to say I was surprised - that was really, really good. Much better (by far) than the trailers suggested. I'm anxious for the rest of the series now.
