I remember the books being fantastic to read in my teenage years.

The trailer has me hopeful, but I'd be pretty mad if the movie sucks.

Another pretty chick action hero movie where camera is shaking all the time to generate fake suspense? Or that's just the trailer done in such fashion but movie will be normal? Can't tell honestly.

These 2010s are inverted 1980s. While in 80s every movie used to be about muscle bound douchebag action hero staring in movies that made zero sense, now we have female protagonists who are both strong and fragile at the same time and story has deeper meaning which shows how us how 80s action movie world building was wrong in every way.

What's next, 2020s movies being exact opposite of 1970s. Instead of free sex and mayhem, we'll watch self flagellation and movies about asceticism?

Fuck Hollywood Jews and their big crooked noses. Those Asian doctors perform fine rhinoplasty procedures you motherfuckers.

She's not the protagonist in the book, I'd assume she isn't in the film either. Her design did mean she was easily identifiable on the cover of the books which I guess is one reason to put her in the trailer instead of generic young-male protagonist with no defining physical characteristics.

But then again she's also horribly disfigured in the book which is why she wears the face-scarf. I suspect that at the very least she'll be the Hollywood definition of 'hideous' beneath that scarf - incredibly attractive but with a tiny barely-noticeable scar.

I also wonder if Hollywood will allow her to be quite as callous and murderous as she is in the books. Oh Hester Shaw... the strange things you made a teenage me feel.

I also hope the movie isn't 'action hero' in any way since that wouldnt fit.

But I'll forgive any transgression as long as the Stalker, Shrike, looks (and sounds) right! A fallen soldier from the battlefield cybernetically resurrected as an emotionless killing machine eons ago using the advanced technology of his day with green glowing eyes and metallic claws, who has outlasted everything else from his era into the steampunk world we see before us? Yes please.

Really pumped for 2020 now.
Maybe you are not bad, but you are a boring person. Well, that's the end of the matter.
