You may have picked up on a recent bit of harrumphing from certain quarters concerning Guilliermo del Toro’s Hobbit film: namely, production has been delayed, it hasn’t been formally greenlit by any studio yet, ergo we’re never going to see it and the world will surely be engulfed by a cleansing fire should a hairy-footed teaser trailer ever make it to Youtube.
Just in time for the weeked, Paranormal Activity was released in th UK last week. Whether it’ll replicate its startling performance at the US box office is a matter for audiences (and if they’re brave enough to go and watch it) – but one thing’s for certain: we’ll certainly be seeing more of its now hot-property director Oren Peli.
Heck, we’re as guilty as anyone out there banging on about Avatar for the last goodness-knows-how-long, what with the fancy new effects, stereoscopic whatsit and mind-blowing interactive trailer. When a film’s hyped as much as Avatar has been, it gets pretty tricky (after a while) to distance yourself from all the marketing hoo-har.
Like some sort of festive Dickensian fable, the good, humble people of Bath were yesterday treated to the kind of visit you don’t even get once a year. Thousands – yes, thousands – of people flocked to the historic city’s centre last night to witness a true Christmas Miracle: Nicolas Cage turning on the local Christmas lights.
We’ve just got wind of this: The new international Toy Story 3 trailer. Despite the fact that the first half of it is taken up with some sort of half-baked memory-jogging clip show (who needs reminding of Woody and Buzz? Seriously!) the rest of it gives us a pretty good idea as to what we’re looking forward to in the much-anticipated third installment.
