Horton Hears a Who!, Re\Visioned: Tomb Raider, The Dark Knight, The Dirty Dozen, Transformers 2, Mike Fright, Comic Previews

Horton Hears a Who!

Josh Flitter, who plays the boy kangaroo in "Horton Hears a Who!" spoke to SCI FI Wire about the upcoming CGI-animated feature. The film is expected to be released in March of next year by 20th Century Fox. Flitter said: "I'm finished with my part of it, and it's pretty great to be part of a classic like this. My character of Rudy was expanded quite a bit from the book and the TV show; he didn't even talk before. He's the little kangaroo in the pouch. They had to expand it out to make it a movie, of course, but it's a much bigger role. It will be very funny."

Re\Visioned: Tomb Raider

TV Guide Online reports that Minnie Driver will be the voice of Lara Croft in "Re\Visioned: Tomb Raider," the new animated series from GameTap, Turner Broadcasting's video-game-themed broadband network. The show will debut July 10.

The Dark Knight

According to this story from MTV, Michael Jai White will play the criminal Gamble in the film. Producers say that Gamble is the head of one of the competing gangs trying to fill the void in Gotham's criminal underworld since the demise of Carmine Falcone (Tom Wilkinson) in "Batman Begins."
