Heaven Hates Babies


Heaven hates babies in the movie Legion. I supposed I should have clarified that. This red band trailer is the first I’ve heard of the movie, yet another one of those biblical apocalypse-type films that feature angels and demons warring on Earth. It all looked pretty generic until mid-way through when it’s revealed that the angels are apparently the one’s doing the main warring, as they’re trying to kill some kind of baby (the good kind, not the anti-Christ kind). Actually, what I’m most excited about is that it appears to be an action film with angels and demons as opposed to pretending to aspire to weightier fare, which they never achieve. I just want to see badass fight scenes between some guys with wings and other guys with fangs and distended limbs. Is that so wrong? (Via /Film)
