Filmstalker's Week 26th to 2nd December
It's that time of the week again, here you'll find a brief roundup of what's been happening at Filmstalker over the last seven days. As always you can suggest stories for Filmstalker on Filmstalker Readers, and you are more than welcome to volunteer to do the weekly roundup. Just contact Richard if you'd like a shot next week.
Also Monday the 3rd is Richard's birthday so Happy Birthday Richard, 21 again eh!
Richard reviewed the UK DVD release of Die Hard 4.0 (Live Free or Die Hard).
And he also reviewed Hitman, the movie incarnation of the videogame.
First up is the trailer for the Hollywood remake of The Eye.
We also the trailer for The Other Boleyn Girl. This one stars Natalie Portman, Scarlett Johansson, and Eric Bana. Bana playing Henry VIII no less.
A new trailer for Hitman also appeared
And also one for Fools Gold starring Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey.
And finally the latest BBC natural history documentary has it's own trailer. Earth looks at the sun's influence on nature.
The Christian Bale/T4 rumour mill continued. Now he might be the hero of the new film as opposed to John Connor. Hmmm I always thought John Connor was the hero in the Terminator films. Or maybe that whole "leader of the human resistance" thing was a load of baloney.
Photos from the set of the Watchmen showed Rorschach.
Chris Weitz explained the reasoning behind the ending of The Golden Compass.
I laughed at the thought of Jackie Chan, Will Smith and his son teaming up for a remake of The Karate Kid.
A full photo of Heath Ledger as The Joker appeared.
And also on the photo front, we got to see more images of Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones in the new film.
Jake Gyllenhaal signed up to play famous American Footballer Joe Namath.
We all headed behind the couch at the thought of a film based on a broken chain letter, imaginatively entitled, Chain Letter. Wow I'm scared already. Next up is a film where people who don't pass on telephone messages are bludgeoned to death.
Daniel Craig assured us he wouldn't be around for four more Bond films.
Edward Norton is set to direct himself, not once but twice as he is to play a set of twins. He'll also be turning his hand to comedy for the film.
Gary Oldman will be joining the cast of Robert Zemeckis' version of A Christmas Carol. Already signed up are Jim Carrey and Bob Hoskins.
And finally rumours of a Constantine sequel continued.
That's the roundup for this week. Have a good week and be sure to check out Filmstalker regularly.
