There are ideas that make you go hmmm, and then ideas that make you go, "Oh, c'mon - WTF Hollywood!" This, my friends ... well, I don't know what the hell this is. In an attempt to just shovel out any and every ridiculous idea that involves vampires, aliens, zombies, monsters and robots, Sony Pictures has teamed up with Michael Bay
's Platinum Dunes on a film called Zombies vs. Robots.
Yup. They've finally gone there.
If you thought Cowboys vs. Aliens was one of the more ridiculous ideas you've ever heard, then get ready because we haven't seen anything yet. In fact, as of this writing, I'm almost certain some idiot executive is mulling over the idea of making a film called Vampires vs. Aliens vs. Zombies vs. Monsters vs. Robots just because why the hell not. This is the age we live in -- an age that's obsessed with making films out of practically anything it can find. Children's toys from the 1980s? Check. Board games no one played? Check. Dolls, talking animals, garden gnomes -- we're really not that far off from Hollywood finding a way to create a film based on talking laundry detergent. Heck, everyone buys laundry detergent -- it's a surefire hit!
For all we know Zombies vs. Robots could turn out to be a big, bad ass film that's not to be missed, but right now -- on paper -- it seems like just another lame idea born out of a system that just doesn't give a sh*t anymore. Might we suggest the film Zombies vs. Hollywood -- this way it'll actually be quite fun watching Hollywood get its ass kicked by something other than yet another horrible idea.
