Just watched the teaser trailer for Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (pretty late for a teaser since the film comes out in just over three months). It looked pretty good, but was too brief to really give any idea about what the film will be like (hopefully, that's a good thing). Harrison Ford looks like he can still handle his whip (no pun intended) and the action scenes look fun. Not sure about some of the "funny" one liners, though. I'll be there opening day, no matter what. I just hope the film manages to capture some of the darker edge of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

Star Wars hot! Hobbit not!

I just heard the pretty cool news that the new computer animated Clone Wars pilot will get a theatrical release in August. While the cynic in me thinks Lucas is just wringing every dollar he can out of the saga, the thought of a new Star Wars movie on the big screen (when everyone thought Revenge of the Sith would be the last) makes me drool.

In not so cool news, The Hobbit movie(s) might not go ahead after all because New Line, who have made a habit of screwing people out of money, are being sued by the Tolkien estate. Which just confirms my belief that they really need to get rid of all the lawyers and executives in Hollywood.
