Warner Brothers is giving Zack Snyder’s director’s cut of Watchmen—which will have an additional 25 minutes of footage, including the death of a supporting character—a limited theatrical run one week before Comic-Con International in San Diego.

The cut will screen in Los Angeles, New York, Minneapolis and Dallas before the movie is released on Blu-ray and DVD on July 21.

Go see it if you get a chance. Better than the recent ‘Terminator Salvation’ movie. Better than the new ‘Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen’ (judging by the reviews), and billions upon billions of times better than the pitiful ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine’. WATCHMEN is THEE super hero movie of the year! The critics were abhorantly WRONG about the movie.

Trust me. The missing squid is not going to ruin the Watchmen movie experience for you.

‘SUPERMAN’ Sequel Movie Update: BIZARRO Themed Script Review Posted

April 11, 2009

BRANDON ROUTH As SUPERMAN

Check out an interesting review of a Bizarro SUPERMAN script that’s getting some buzz HERE.

The last we heard about the SUPERMAN franchise on the THRALL WORLD blogzine was on Halloween of last year when BRANDON ROUTH said THIS.

My take on the review: Bizarro sounds a little bit like the Hulk. Ridiculously powerful, misunderstood, and a margially controllable wild card. General Zod and Ursa also are back (from Superman 2) and heavily involved. It sounds like an interesting concept for a graphic novel idea but I seriously doubt that this is the way they will go with retooling the Superman movie franchise.

‘THE DARK KNIGHT’ Tops $1 Billion Mark

Warner Bros. made the announcement Friday afternoon, saying that the combined domestic and international gross had totaled $1,001,082,160 to date — about $533 million domestically and $567 million overseas.

Only “Titanic,” with $1.8 billion, “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” have topped the billion-dollar worldwide mark previously.

Read more HERE.

‘THE DARK KNIGHT’ director, CHRISTOPHER NOLAN, just this week announced his next movie will be the science fiction action film, ‘INCEPTION’, which should push back any possible sequel to 2011 at the earliest. I’m thinking it will be closer to 2012. The length of time between Bat movies doesn’t really concern me as Nolan is going to need some time to plan his next move.

Straight from The Wrestler’s mouth:

“Right now, we’re not doing Iron Man 2.”

Read more HERE.

Marvel has been low balling some of the talent they’ve been approaching money-wise, probably on the theory that their movies are so high profile. Reports are that Samuel L. Jackson may not return as Nick Fury and Terrence Howard definitely isn’t coming back as Rhodey. The wait-and-see is in full effect.

Because Emily Blunt’s commitment to Twentieth Century Fox and the studio’s upcoming Gulliver’s Travels movie may prohibit her from costarring in Iron Man 2, Marvel is in discussions with other actresses, most significantly Scarlett Johansson, to take her place.

Blunt’s reps are still trying to make both projects work.
