Time for your dose of eye candy. FilmForce brings us a neat pic of the costume in the new Spider-Man movie.
I really wish someone would’ve told me about this earlier — the short-lived, but really nifty, “Spider-Man Unlimited” animated series came back to TV this morning on FOX. And the movie starts filming on Monday, even though it’s not currently slated to hit theaters until May 2002, according to this report from the big Y.
Nothing new here, friends… The Golden Globes don’t have technical categories like the Oscars do, so we have to go on the strength of actors and plot — something which SF, stereotypically, isn’t known for.
“Gladiator” racked up lots of nominations, but it’s not exactly genre in the strictest sense. Ditto for “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.” Sadly, the closest to a genuine SF/Fantasy nod there is, is Jim Carrey for “The Grinch.” That, and the always-lovely Jessica Alba for Dark Angel (Best Actress, Drama nomination).
Top-secret sources at MIT have uncovered the Nazi
secrets of the Terminators, and are bravely revealing
the plot of Terminator: Third Reich… er, “Terminator
3.” If you can handle the naked truth, go read all about
the next two Terminator movies.
It’s only peripherally on-topic here, but I was a big
fan of “The Transformers” when I was, oh, eight. Definite
nostalgia value in the movie. Read the review.
This week, the big rumor, from Variety magazine, is
that kickass babe Michelle Yeoh (“Tomorrow Never Dies”)
will be replacing Jet Li (“Black Mask”) because, reportedly,
he wanted too much money.
The only definitely-themed SF/Fantasy film on the charts this week, Dungeons & Dragons, was number 5 with a crossbow bolt last weekend, grossing just over $7 million. “The Grinch” is still pimpin’, doubling that and then some.
In completely unrelated news that didn’t justify its own story, the rumor mill reports that William Shatner may quit doing those goofy Priceline commercials. It may be related to the fact that his pay was in stock options, which have dwindled from $20 million in value to about $250,000.
Okay, we’ve confirmed that all the biggies from “The
Matrix” are coming back for the sequel. Actress Jada
Pinkett-Smith has just signed on, and the Wachowski
Brothers are reportedly talking with singer Aaliyah, Harold Perrineau
Jr., Harry Lennex, and Carrie-Anne Moss’ co-star in “Red
Planet,” Benjamin Bratt. So, other than me, who hasn’t been offered a role?
Tell us all about your role in the “Matrix” sequel.
