Star Trek

E! Online posted here an interesting interview with Clifton Collins Jr. about his role in the upcoming J.J. Abrams film. Collins has confirmed that the villains he and Eric Bana play are Romulans. He also said his and Bana's Romulan look could have been inspired by "Pirates of the Caribbean." He said: "We're space pirates, think of Johnny Depp as a Romulan."

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Warner Brothers has announced the film has been moved from its November 2008 release date to July 17, 2009. Warner chief Alan Horn said: "Our reasons for shifting Half-Blood Prince to summer are twofold: we know the summer season is an ideal window for a family tent pole release, as proven by the success of our last Harry Potter film, which is the second-highest grossing film in the franchise, behind only the first installment. Additionally, like every other studio, we are still feeling the repercussions of the writers’ strike, which impacted the readiness of scripts for other films—changing the competitive landscape for 2009 and offering new windows of opportunity that we wanted to take advantage of. We agreed the best strategy was to move Half-Blood Prince to July, where it perfectly fills the gap for a major tent pole release for mid-summer."
