This is just getting ridiculous, honestly. If the ‘manliest’ franchise of them all, James Freaking Bond, has a nail polish collection, why can’t we? (I do hope I’m speaking too soon, given we of a a major release date or two coming up in 2013…)
You can get up close and personal with the Bond swatches at The PolishAholic and Polish Addict: I’m partial to Live And Let Die and The World Is Not Enough, while The Spy Who Loved Me may make for a good Phantom Menace Amidala look.

The notable lack of a big franchise fantasy film* for the season makes the coming months slim pickings for genre fans, unless one happens to be a preteen girl (Twilight) or their younger siblings (Bolt) or a [male] comics fan (Punisher: War Zone, The Spirit) or one of the two people who thought The Day the Earth Stood Still remake was a good idea.

Go boldly to the newstand: Star Trek is the cover story for the new Entertainment Weekly. The cover promises new photos and a set visit, but if you’re dying to see something, there are already a few images out and about the web.

Bond joins the party: In other news, the first full trailer for Trek is set to be attached to Quantum of Solace.
IndianaJones.com posts another behind-the-scenes video, this time focusing on the original iconic Hat. TheRaider.net also has a scan of a new photo featuring Shia LaBeouf and Cate Blanchett.
He’s the Jedi who sets many a Wanton’s heart a-thunkin’. He was the “man’s man, ladies’ man, man-about-town” in Down with Love. He was even supposedly considered for James Bond.
But he tells The Boston Herald that he chose his latest role (as Beatrix Potter’s love, Norman Warne in Miss Potter) because of the character’s awkwardness.
Flashes of Little Voice, anyone?
