War of the Worlds Teaser Poster
Here is a nice quick update for you... While we have seen the simple font
logo in the War of the Worlds teaser trailer, it seems that the
poster has improved upon this font greatly. The font also seems to have
an old school look to it, sort of like Ten Commandments style.
Ahh, I can't put my finger on it, but I know I have seen a very similar
cover/poster before. [image above].

of the Worlds Movie Page.
The Island Picks up Steam, and Sean Bean
The Island, directed by Armageddon Michael Bay, has recently
come back into the front light when the film picked up Sean Bean to play
as the antagonist in the film. The film takes place in the mid 21st century,
during a time of major advancement. Lincoln [played by Ewan McGregor] is
a member of a controlled society where he only wishes to go to a place only
known as 'The Island.' This place, according to Lincoln, is the last remaining
uncontrolled, and uncontaminated spot for human existence. However, Lincoln's
plans are crushed when he discovers that he, and all other members of the
facility in which he lives, is a clone whose sole purpose is to provide
spare parts for the original donor. It is only a matter of time before Lincoln
will be 'harvested,' another term for destroyed. Lincoln's only solution
is to find a way to escape before time runs out.
If you haven't heard of Sean Bean, how dare you! This guy is a brilliant
actor and has recently scored a hit in Bruckheimer's National Treasure.
He also played the character of Boromir in LOTR: Fellowship of the Ring.

Harrison Ford in The Battle for Fallujah
According to Empire
Magazine, Harrison Ford has agreed to play a major role in The Battle
for Fallujah. It seems that Harrison is tired of sitting around, waiting
to see whether they go forward with Indiana IV or not.
Here is a couple snippets from the article:
Ford will play General Jim Mattis, the leader
of the attack, which was initially halted by order of the White House when
the American troops were just 48 hours away from taking the city. In the
dictionary definition of a botch, they had to go back six months later to
finish the job, incurring far more severe losses than they did first time
around. In total, 78 American soldiers died in the two battles. Itís not
known how many Iraqis died.
This one could go either way, quite frankly, given that as many people seem
to support the war in Iraq as there are those who despise it. Although the
story Ė and the title of the book - would suggest that this might be a scathing
indictment of US policy in Iraq, Fordís presence is a bit of a headscratcher...

I loved Anchorman
, Ferrell's adlib was classic.
Will Ferrell is a Bronze God
Lets just say, Will Ferrell is some pretty hot property right now. Or, as
said in Zoolander, 'he can take a dump, wrap it in tinfoil, add
some fish hooks, and sell them as earrings to Queen Elizabeth.' Well, according
to Variety, Columbia Pictures has hired Alex Gregory and Peter Huyck to
develop the script, Bronze God, for Will Ferrell to star in. The
film is about a lifeguard who realizes his dream when he is picked to compete
in a local beach volleyball tournament. I can only imagine the infinite
possibilities with this one.
Ferrell is currently shooting the film Bewitched, co-starring with
the seductress Nicole Kidman.
