Christopher Yost is a big name in the superhero world, he masterminded the script for ‘Thor:The Dark World‘ and the upcoming ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘, besides that, he shaped the world for some of the biggest names in comic-book animation like ‘X-Men: Evolution‘, ‘Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes‘, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ and ‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Warriors‘, so it makes perfect sense that Sony Pictures and Escape Artists have brought in the master of the effervescent to take a whack at the rewrite of a script for the reboot of ‘Masters of the Universe‘.

If you don’t know the story, you need to go check out the cartoon that ran from 1983-1985 and introduced us 80’s kids to some of the most one-dimensional characters ever created, but we couldn’t get enough. There’s not a Generation X-er that won’t respond to hearing the name He-Man, Masters of the Universe, Skeletor or even Castle Grayskull without responding with a hearty “By the power of Grayskull!” Hell, I even named my┬árouter “Castle Grayskull”. The story is set on the planet of Eternia and follows a royal weakling named Prince Adam, who has a secret identity, the power to transform into the universe-saving He-Man! His nemesis is the villainous and cadaverous-looking Skeletor who is constantly trying to take over Castle Grayskull to learn the secrets it holds. He-Man is so mighty, a regular horse just wouldn’t do, so he has a tiger that has just as deceiving an alter ego as Prince Adam. As Cringer, he is a cowardly, sniveling tiger who is a bigger version of Scooby-Doo, shakes and all, but once He-Man transforms, Cringer becomes the mighty Battle Cat who is armored and sharp-clawed, but equipped with a saddle to accommodate all He-Man’s transportational needs.

It’s a hot-bed of story-lines, packed with nostalgia, action and a built-in successful franchise, Filmation and Mattel made a mint off the creation, so it’s only right to continue the tradition with a younger audience. I, for one, will be dragging my kids, if need be, to theaters for this one!

Movie Quotes

[first lines]
Alex 'Hitch' Hitchens:
Basic Principles - no woman wakes up saying "God, I hope I don't get swept off my feet today!" Now, she might say "This is a really bad time for me," or something like "I just need some space," or my personal favorite "I'm really into my career right now." You believe that? Neither does she. You know why? 'Cause she's lying to you, that's why. You understand me? Lying! It's not a bad time for her. She doesn't need any space. And she may be into her career, but what she's really saying is "Uh, get away from me now," or possibly "Try harder, stupid," but which one is it? 60% of all human communication is nonverbal, body language; 30% is your tone, so that means 90% of what you're saying ain't coming out of your mouth. Of course she's going to lie to you! She's a nice person! She doesn't want to hurt your feelings! What else she going to say? She doesn't even know you... yet. Luckily, the fact is that just like the rest of us, even a beautiful woman doesn't know what she wants until she sees it, and that's where I come in. My job is to open her eyes. Basic Principles - no matter what, no matter when, no matter who... any man has a chance to sweep any woman off her feet; he just needs the right broom.
