This looks like it is going to be a lot of fun.


#3

You have no idea how happy I am that I got to use this gif again.


#4

wait… I thought Led Zeppelin never licenses their music for movies?


#5

Some youngster on another site this was posted on asked who did the song used in the trailer. Maybe the owners of the rights decided it was time to get a new audience.


#6

This is at least the third trailer I’ve seen in the last month that uses Zeppelin. I think euansmith is right on the money. Lots and lots of money.


#7

Asgardians of the Galaxy.


#8

School of Rock I believe was the first film Led Zeppelin allowed to use their music, but I seem to remember that it was an exception the band made at the time. Obviously things have changed a lot now. Cameron Crowe desperately wanted to use “Stairway to Heaven” in Almost Famous but the band turned him down, I bet he was pissed when he heard their music in School of Rock.

i believe Jimmy Page has softened his stance on that sort of thing. i won’t be so cynical to say it’s all about the money… i do think he’s just given in to the inevitability of it all.

I said in the other Thor thread, in case you didn’t see that, the inspiration for this movie is Big Trouble in Little China.
And damn, am I ever here for that!


#11

I can’t believe that’s Cate Blanchett. She looks awesome.

Well I suppose she always does but she looks awesome in a particular way I’ve never seen before. Maybe it’s just the jet black hair but whatever it is it’s awesome.


#12

That was the third time I’ve watched the trailer, and I finally went to see what part Cate was playing because I did not recognize her.

Looks good.


#13

Page is a retiree now. Papa’s gotta pay for those snakeskin golf pants.


#14

If Led Zeppelin was ever going to sell out by licensing that song they couldn’t have found a more appropriate property to sell out for.


#15


They broke the seal over a decade ago.


#16

I didn’t realise Christopher Eccleston was in The Dark World until the end credits.


#17

I didn’t realize Benicio Del Toro was in The Dark World until the end credits.


#18

I didn’t know there was going to be a BTiLC influence - consider me SOLD and SOLD again!

Thor as Jack Burton? I could live with that.


#19

yeah that train has sailed a long time ago
