STAR WARS
Carrie Fisher made headlines by telling The Hollywood Reporter she's confirmed for the next Star Wars movie. Turns out it was "a joke". Her reps said, "Nothing had been announced." I can't imagine them signing her before anyone else.

DOCTOR WHO
"Doctor Who" season 7 (and a half) returns this month with new adventures for the Doctor (Matt Smith) and his new companion, Clara (Jenna-Louise Coleman). BBC America released new photos from the first episodes.

The first images of the updated Ice Warriors have been released.
Steven Moffat told SFX magazine: "It was Mark's idea to bring the Ice Warriors back. He'd been pitching it for a while."
Here's what they looked like back in the day.

We used to always get movies first, but more and more open elsewhere in the world first.

I really need to have my British blogger friends go to the movies and record them for me. So if Chris Cooper is Norman Osborne does that mean he'll be the Green Goblin? I have a hard time envisioning that.

As slick as everything is now, you've gotta love those old school Dr Who costumes and sometimes wobbly scenery!

Maurice Mitchell said...

It's a grand experiment Alex. The International market is exploding right now.

Maurice Mitchell said...

He makes a great villain, but he's no Dafoe Pat.

It was almost like live theater back in the day Nick.

I can never get enough Jeremy. Soon they'll be releasing press releases that there's nothing to say.
