my question is this, in the preview it says all humans left 1,000 years ago, so 1) how can a species evolve to kill something that is non existent to them? and 2) its only been a 1,000 years... how can species evolve that much? i mean hell what evidence of evolution do we have that has happened in the last 1,000 years? i mean that was only 1012- now

Well maybe you are seeing it wrong? Let's say they left earth in 17013 and the crash happened in 18013. That would leave 15000 years for animals to "evolve to kill humans". It doesn't say they left about now (or I missed something), just that they left a thousand years ago but that still may be the distant future.

The only strange thing would be that over the same time humans didn't evolve at all (or they all got black maybe lol)

Given the fact that the biosphere (plants and animals) seen in the trailer appears to be similar to the one we have now, I'm guessing that there wasn't too much of an environmental change to necessitate accelerated evolution. So, chances are Will Smith is just being edgy.

Depending on how harsh the enviroment and the species, evolution can happen at an enhanced rate. Certain species have been seen to evolve through 3-4 generations, Granted it wasnt amassive change. but with something that has a generation every 2-3 months, in 1000 years massive amounts of change can happen. On the point that humans weren't around, well, maybe there was a species much like humans, Other than that, you got me

I got into an argument about animal rights with this chick. I tried to end the conversation by saying that in the end, they're just animals. She became furious, saying that I'm "just a human." I corrected her with, "no, I'm just an animal." Then I explained that if some animal was capable of catching and eating me (she's a vegetarian), I would be content with my new-found place in the food chain.

I mean if something evolved ahead of our species. Like birds that can drop bombs or something crazy like that. If we let ourselves become the inferior species, we've failed.

...you can't actually force evolution and sprout wings you know, and the only reason we are "ahead" is because of intelligence, we make tools and weapons
you don't come over as a very smart person

I'd gladly testify against your last point. Maybe I'm not articulating my idea properly. Sure, I'd fight back if I were in any sort of danger, but to see a mere animal eventually become the dominant species on our planet would be crazy. I really only brought this up to win the conversation I was having at the time; it didn't go so deep.

Also, I have a thorough understanding of evolution. It takes millions of years and all that. If I could just sprout wings and become homo avianus overnight, I would have already done so.

Unfortunately if some other species showed signs of evolved intelligence we'd probably get scared and kill it.

I've one seen an earth worm about two metres long and as thick as my arm. It was lying in a pool of worm slime. So yes.

Actually, the species that do best in human presence are the domesticated species.

Evolution isn't fast enough for an animal to adapt to kill us. To actually do that, it would need to gain the advantage, start hunting humans to actually make it a factor in reproduction, and breed an entire population. Oh, and be able to withstand the full force of human military, you know, nuclear weapons included.

Anyway, domesticated animals are actually the most advantageous. Living in symbiosis with human almost 100% ensures their survival as a species. We don't breed vultures because they aren't good/easy eatin', but we breed chickens for that purpose. We don't breed hippo's because they aren't docile like cows. Same with pigs. Crows adapted to humans by learning to use our tools as their own tools and learning to stay out of trouble so we don't kill them. Those are our main domesticated animals, and they're also the most abundant as well. Oh, and dogs/cats/various pets. But that's because coorperating and being our lovable pets makes them not dead and have easy, free lives.

It's not a nature documentary it's a sci-fi action movie.

Immersion is a property of entertainment. The ability to be immersed can be ruined when a premise that is statistically unlikely or impossible to achieve is laid down. This is most prevalent in sci-fi movies, really. Because it's so easy to develop a premise that's plausible, one like this just makes it look retarded.

Avatar - possible. Star Wars/Trek - possible. Dr. Who - possible. Mass Effect - possible. Common animals evolving to kill humans that have freaking super space ships - impossible.

Sure, you can go ahead and point out a million movies with bad premise that did well, but most of them are designed around a core feature other than that premise. For instance Twilight was so popular for teenage romance bullcrap. Harry Potter was popular for it's non-realistic premise being a fantasy movie. Etc. This movie may fall into this category in time, but from what I've seen - it's not going to be like that.

They are not evolving to kill humans with space ships. It is in the future where Earth is presumably no longer inhabited by humans. These two people crash land on it by mistake. Not much you can do. It has become a dangerous place without human intervention. It is very possible.

The trailer's exact words: "Everything in this world has evolved... to kill humans."

Why else would it be a "class 1 quarantine planet". Why else would humans have left their home planet (even though it's obviously still haspitable)?

And not really all that possible. The dinosaurs are an example of when evolution chose brawn over brain. However, the evolution of mammals signified the owners of Earth will be brains over brawn going forward. Animals become more intelligent, not more powerful on Earth (unless almost all major species suddenly dies off like the dinosaurs).

It's finals week is all and I have other work to do on top of it. I can't stop myself from procrastinating here though. Needless to say I'm not in a great mood.

I don't know how I feel about this movie. On the one hand, it has Will Smith in it, on the other hand, it has his son in it, and it's directed by Shamalamadingdong. I do not want to spend money on one of his movies, because that might encourage him to make more.

i used to live in north queensland ( top left pointy bit on map) and up there if the animals didn't kill you and you got into a town, some drunk ass bludger would cave your haed in with a bottle for "looking at him" or "breathing loudly" ( both of those excuses were used while i lived there ) and one of our towns had the highest hospital admissions for broken jaws in the world, last i checked. the people are as violent as the animals.
