First off, The Grudge, a remake of a Japanese horror film starring Buffy‘s Sarah Michelle Gellar. She really should go back to her original hair color though, because I spent the whole trailer expecting Willow or Giles to show up.
Garden State, an indie film with tremendous buzz. It does have Natalie Portman, and for us geek-loving ladies, is written, directed, and headlined by Zach Braff of Scrubs.
And we finish up with a few ‘adaptations’ – I, Robot, sure to give any Asimov purists convulsions, and Constantine, which has already given Hellblazer fans spazms with the dubious miscasting of Keanu Reeves in the title role. On the plus side, there’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events, which looks pretty on track despite the presence of Jim Carey.
