    Because they couldn't get Rinko Kikuchi, Devon Aoki, Rila Fukushima or ANY Asian actress to play her. Not surprised with the casting decision, but does anyone remember "The Last Airbender", "Dragonball Evolution", "Edge of Tomorrow" or "Power Rangers Samurai"?


  2. Snow White, baby geniuses and Spider-Man? That's the pedigree we have on this thing? The only way it could be worse is if Shyamalan got his horrid Last Airbender mits on it...
