Aeon Flux - The Movie

Postby StlSluggers » Tue Jul 05, 2005 1:30 pm

You guys remember this cartoon on MTV back in the day? Looks like they're making a movie out of it with Charleze Theron in the lead role.

IMDB.com wrote:The sci-fi actioner is set 400 years in the future, when disease has wiped out the majority of the earth's population except for one walled, protected city-state, Bregna, ruled by a congress of scientists. The story centers on Aeon Flux(Theron), the top operative in the underground 'Monican' rebellion, led by The Handler(Frances McDormand). When Aeon is sent on a mission to kill a government leader, she uncovers a world of secrets...

So I guess this means that it will be live action, as opposed to a cartoon? Be interesting to see how it translates.

I always hated Aeon Flux. The Pitt was way cooler.

The Pitt was pretty awesome.

Here's the official site. There's a trailer for the movie. Doesn't look half bad.

Interesting trailer. :-? Never been a big fan of computer generated graphics movies like that, but maybe this one will be better. :-?

i think that was just a video game trailer in the same vein as the Final Fantasy game trailers.

I was confused by it, too. If you go back and check the hyperlink, the whole thing lights up when you mouse over it. So it read: "View the trailer for the video game," or something to that effect.
