Batman 3

Total Film is passing on a rumor in this posting that Chris Nolan is planning on shooting 2011 the sequel entirely on IMAX. Chris, wouldn't this cut into that huge box office?

Iron Man 2

Comic Book Resources has this nice interview with a favorite actor of mine, Sam Rockwell, about his role as Tony Stark's billionaire rival Justin Hammer.


Slash Film has this article about the film that seems to be based on the Todd McFarlane "Twisted Land of Oz" line of toys. McFarlane described the story as: "You've still got Dorothy trapped in an odd place, but she's much closer to the Ripley character from Alien [Sigourney Weaver] than a helpless singing girl." The Daily Express says here that Dakota Fanning is high in the running to play Dorothy (grand daughter of the original Dorothy) in the film that is scheduled to go into production next year.

TV DVD News has posted info about "Drawn Together" (Complete Series) here, "The Shield" (Complete Series) here, "Star Trek: The Next Generation" (More Best of Episodes) here, "Star Trek" (More Best of Episodes) here, "Dawson's Creek" (Complete Series) here, "The Golden Age of Television" (Classic Kinoscopes) here.

X-Men Origins: Magneto

MTV spoke here with David Goyer about the future of the project. Goyer said: "They're still thinking about doing it. They're definitely looking into doing other X-Men spinoffs. I've been in touch with them. I'm sure that project will move forward in the next year or so." The film has a loose release date of sometime in the summer of 2011.


The Institute for Human Continuity's site turn out to be a viral for the upcoming Roland Emmerich film. You can go and see the kind of world ending disasters that might follow up the Mayan prophecy upon which the movie is based. The film's official release date is November 13, 2009.

The Last Airbender

Here on his Twitter, producer Frank Marshall said: "For those of you wondering about LAST AIRBENDER, all is well in post and we r working on a trailer for Xmas…" The film opens July 2, 2010.

Special thanks to Movie for so many of the dynamite movie posters we use from time to time. You cannot find a better place to run down those new or classic posters.
