First Look: Lame Concept Art for Lucifer in Alex Proyas 'Paradise Lost'
I'd love to say 'meet the new Lucifer' but this is hardly more than a look at his eyes, so that doesn't really work this time. Legendary.com (via ComingSoon) has unveiled the first concept art image of Lucifer, to be played by Bradley Cooper, in Alex Proyas' upcoming project Paradise Lost, based on John Milton's epic poem. I'm not sure why, of all things, they decided simply to reveal his dark eyes and some weird wispy Photoshopped imagery on top, but suffice it to say, the best word for this art is none other than lame. Legendary's Comic-Con plans seem to have been way overhyped this year, and this is one example of that.
Here's the official logline for Paradise Lost: Lucifer and Michael, God's greatest archangels, share the bond of extraordinary friendship until God produces his greatest creation: Man. Unable to remain subservient to God if it means bowing down to humanity, Lucifer begins his dark descent and is cast out - only to plot his revenge. Legendary Pictures currently has the project in pre-production aiming for a 2012 release, and no one other than Bradley Cooper is attached yet. I've been curious about this project, but this first concept art could not be more uninteresting. I just hope the production itself is making much greater strides than this.

The eyes are in outlook close to the real one, but not quite so dark or long. Also real Luci is insanely more beautiful than BC + much, much taller. No, not happy.

So they released concept art for satan's eyes? And his eyes are just regular eyes, but colored all black? Does this really need to be concept art? Did they need to spend the money to have an artist spend the time to color in a dude's eyes black? Is the weird color-dodge tribal tattoo part of the concept, or is it just crap they put on there to make it look less dull? How useful is this as concept art if you can't really see what the actor looks like with this effect in place? It can't possibly be concept art. It's more likely to be some image the studio released as some kind of weird marketing thing that they're calling 'concept art'. Concept art is supposed to be useful to the people making the movie, doing the makeup, doing the effects, etc. This image isn't useful except to remind the effects guys to make his eyes black. Maybe it's a poster concept or something.
