Movie News: V for Vendetta, Undead Trek, Spielberg

It’s just been one thing after another for V for Vendetta: Now the release date has been moved back a second time to March. By the time this movie comes out, Natalie Portman may actually have hair.

Star Trek may not be actually dead. Again: Stake. Heart. Plunge. Rinse with holy water. Repeat.

Steve Spielberg’s next project is When Worlds Collide, which sounds like an Armageddon retread. Spielberg being Spielberg, it should turn out okay if Ben Affleck and Aerosmith are kept far, far away.

Jessica Alba is not Jeannie. (As in I Dream of.) Instead, she’s starring in a movie called The Wake with Sigourney Weaver and Hayden Chistensen. Classic TV fans breathe a sign of relief… I mean, do we really need a remake of I Dream of Jeannie in this day and age? Did Nicole Kidman’s Bewitched teach us nothing?

A director says what?

Steven Spielberg had a bit to say about Revenge of the Sith on a London radio station today:

Christian O’Connell: Stephen have you seen the new Star Wars?

Steven Spielberg: I saw it about a week ago, and it’s absolutely amazing. It’s the best of the last 3 episodes, it’s the best way you could possibly imagine for George to finish it off, it has a tremendous ending. It’s very dark — you’ll cry at the end. It’s wonderful.

Again with the crying…

Also, for those keeping track, the soundtrack came out today. If you buy it at Target or Walmart, you can download one of two exclusive tracks. From Target you get the radio edit of Battle of the Heros; from Walmart, an interview with John Williams. Not sure about how it works with Walmart, but I bought mine at Target and got a download code inside the case. And don’t forget the bonus DVD!
