In the news: Monday morning reading list

  • Cloverfield smashes January box office records, including the one held by the ANH Special Edition.
  • Lightsaber named top movie weapon in 20th Century Fox poll. (Huh.) The Death Star and Indiana Jones’ whip also made the list, and Luke Skywalker and Indiana Jones are among the favorite weapon-wielding heroes.
  • Skywalker Sound up for BAFTA for There Will Be Blood.
  • AICN has a report from the cancer-free Fanboys.
  • Ewan McGregor claiming Trainspotting had more influence than Star Wars prequels. On his career, perhaps.
