I saw the After Earth trailer yesterday.
Ignore for the sake of this post that it is directed by M. Night Shyamalan. I did.
So, I'm sitting here, watching this trailer, and all I can think is, 'If Jaden survives all this then there'd better be Astartes waiting to take him away for neophyte testing.' Given my recent posting on this forum, it's hardly an out of the blue thought. I know Jaden Smith is just fourteen years of age now, and hypothetically probably wouldn't be taken for neophyte testing, though it may just be possible. The first three phases of implants can be simultaneously introduced at fourteen, so maybe he'd still qualify, hypothetically.
Yeah, I know the space ships and tech look too advanced for 40k. Yeah, the thought of Jaden Smith as a Space Marine is more than a little strange. I'm not sure I'll even watch the movie truth be told. But whilst watching this trailer, it's all I could think about. Quarantined Death World for a young warrior to undergo his testing. And to top it, master his fears. Sounds 40k to me.
So what films have reminded you of 40k? I'm not really on about films that inspired 40k. None of that, 'Sentinels are AT-ST's' twoddle. I'm looking for films that seem based of 40k or unintentionally make you think of 40k.
A final note to the moderators/admins: I'm still kinda new to all of this. I checked up on forum rules and read carefully up on where this should be posted. Only doing so when I felt I'd found the right area. So, here's me sounding the atypical forum newbie. I'm sorry if anything is out of place, or done wrong.
