I thought it would be fun to unravel the headlines from Amercian Morning Report. I'm having issues with the image uploader, so I can't put them in order, but they read:
CHINA TO ATTEMPT FIRST DOCKING WITH TIANGONG 1 SPACE LAB
TROOP LEVELS IN AFGHANISTAN TO REMAIN UNCHANGED FOR FORESEEABLE FUTURE
MC-G RUMORED TO DIRECT 'BLADE RUNNER' PREQUEL
BEAR FACT: GRIZZLY POLAR BEAR HYBRID DISCOVERED
RCMP - AGENTS INVITED TO 'CONSULT' --GREENLEY: "THIS IS IN NO WAY A VIOLATION OF CANADA'S SOVEREIGNTY
BILL DUKE CONSIDERING GUBERNATORIAL BID
UNNAMED SOURCE CLAIM DETAINEES BEING HELD IN CALGARY
WHITE HOUSE CALLS WAR GAMES PROVOCATIVE
KATE HUDSON & ASHTON KUTCHER TO STAR IN REMAKE OF "THE GRADUATE"
CHINA TO BEGIN NAVAL WAR GAMES IN SOUTH C..
NEW UNIVERSAL FLUE VACCINE DISCOVERED
APPLECURRY FRONTMAN KEEGAN CANCELS TOUR CITING 'EXHAUSTION'
I like the way the first news cast didn't have any headlines about the situation in Calgary, but they are now creeping in. I also like the slightly futuristic news.
Bear Fact and Applecurry are both references to Lionshare, Josh and Bracey's previous movie (which I hope to review sometime soon). Nice to see they're in the same universe.
It looks like Tiangong 1 is finished, and there are tensions between the US and China evidently, I wonder if this will come into the plot at all? There's a wink at unnecessary prequels and remakes.
I'm guessing Bill Duke for governor is an Arnie joke as they were both in Predator, but I could be wrong.
