Watching Peter Chung’s animated series for MTV, Aeon Flux, was the closest I’ve gotten to hallucinating since I, well, stopped ingesting things that do the heavy lifting for you. So, I’ve been keenly interested in the live action film, starring the very talented and painfully hot Chalize Theron.
After watching the trailer, I gotta say: P.U.! This thing looks ALL wrong. It has none of the inexplicable, tripped-out, lizard-brain insanity that made the cartoon so effective. They didn’t even get Aeon’s look right. A possible tip off to the fact that it might be crap is the rumor that Paramount had originally slated it for September. That’s usually where poorly-tested films go to die. It currently has a Dec. 2 release date.
