Finally, a real summer movie

Tom and Emily,

Looks like someone in Asia was listening to our prayers about dragons fighting tanks. I have no idea what is going on in this trailer but it looks like they just CGI-ed out the all the crappy Transformers and CGI-ed all sorts of awesome dragons to replace them.

They also added knights riding dragons, dragons firing missiles, most of LA blowing up, Robert Forster and what looks to be the guy who hosted While You Were Out and was the opening act for Britney Spears. And then more dragons. And in another trailer on Youtube, there was a dragon eating an elephant. And that guy from the Office. So fucking awesome.

This news is fantastic. And opening day happens to fall on the eve of my best friend's wedding. Would a better present be two tickets plus a commemorative sword or two tickets plus a bootleg recording so that she can watch it again and again?

WOW. All I can say is: what took them so long? Why did anyone bother making any movies besides this one, ever? I guess I can grant a pass for the Indiana Jones movies. Otherwise...

But: didn't the aliens already blow up that building in Independence Day? I'd hate to see them already introducing continuity errors that would plague a potential crossover franchise.
