MORE DWARVES, YOU GUYS!





Oh.


Harry Potter Sets New Pre-Opening Sales Record; Movieline review: 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2' guides the franchise to a graceful, moving end@ebertchicago: My review: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2." A fitting finale. Although Ebert does take Dumbledore to task for not sending the embattled students home. Sometimes I wonder if he's paying attention, God bless him.

Bootleg Dark Knight trailer. Is that Bane/Tom Hardy in there? This whole Bane thing is starting to upset me. I heard a really unhappy Bane spoiler from the comics and I DO NOT WANT.

See Harrison Ford & Daniel Craig in a first look clip from Jon Favreau's 'Cowboys & Aliens.' 

Here's a new banner for Aramis (Luke Evans) from The Three Musketeers.

New Detailed Peek at Spider-Man's New Suit.

@cleolinda: TOO MANY DWARVES RT @cinemablend: Nick Frost Is The Seventh Dwarf In Snow White And The Huntsman.

Watch the First Trailer for Viral Thriller 'Contagion' ("directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Marion Cotillard, Matt Damon, Laurence Fishburne, Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kate Winslet"); @DrewAtHitFix: "If you're already interested in "Contagion," do NOT watch the new spoiler-filled trailer. Insane." So... yeah.

Joe Carnahan's Wolf Pic 'The Grey' Has Bidders Hungry After 30-Minute Reel. Is Scott Speedman in this, maybe?

"Winnie the Pooh" is 68 minutes of pure, hunny-covered satisfaction. Scott Speedman is probably not in this.

awww yay! Third link spam in a row! Im happy to see it back. It would make me happy if you kept up with it! =D


Also, the beard necklace is one of the most confusing things I have ever seen.

It's very upsetting to me, for some reason. A lot of this linkspam seems to be upsetting me.

(Deleted comment)
I will watch Alexander Skarsgan3@%&%^$$whatis in anything. (But I will not learn to spell his name apparently.)

I'll be happy with one final Sookie Stakehouse book, so long as it doesn't leave a bad taste in my mouth like a few of them have.

ALSO OMG YAY WELCOME BACK LINKSPAM FOR HOWEVER LONG YOU LAST. *waves pompoms*

THAT'S OKAY. AIDAN TURNER AND RICHARD ARMITAGE (they better not uglify him!) WILL BRING ALL THE HOTNESS REQUIRED FROM THE DWARF FACTION. (Also, too much hotness might cause spontaneous combustion in the theatres.)

I CANNOT SEE AIDAN AS ANYONE BUT MITCHELL. IT WILL JUST BE WEIRD.

The are NOT the Tiger Beat Dwarves.

I don't know if I'm just in a really weird giddy mood or what, but this comment made me LOL IRL for about ten seconds straight. This is why LJ needs a 'like' feature.

About Ebert's review, he has said he's not paying attention. I think it was on the DH1 review, he said he only watches the movies once and doesn't really remember details from one to the the next.

Which makes me said, you're doing it wrong, don't complain if you don't get it.

The only review of his I've read in years was for Kung Fu Panda 2, and it made me despair. He was genuinely surprised to discover that Po was adopted.

Wow, James Nesbitt is almost unrecognizable there. Funny how they released the ~attractive~ dwarves first.

Sad that the Sookie books are ending. What will I read at the beach now?


They didn't, actually. There were two sets of dwarves released before the Hot Ones.

The first set were Nori, Ori and Dori, featuring arguably the most cracktastic hair yet.

Then, as if they knew that everyone was freaking out about Nori's hair, they released the very traditional-looking Oin and Gloin (Gimli's father).

Fili and Kili were the third set released, presumably taking advantage of diehard-fan guard-letting-down over Oin and Gloin.

So Bombur, Bofur and Bifur swing back a bit more towards traditional, yet still kind of wacky.

At this point, though, I don't think most people are expecting Balin and Dwalin to be too outre. And Richard Dwarfitrage (hat-tip) is just expected to be fairly hot. (Which amongst the diehards is cause for its own kind of controversy.)

Am I the only one totally flipping out over the promise of a new Moby Dick miniseries?

I don't know, but I think I'm the only one wondering how Gillian Anderson is going to manage both the "Moby Dick" miniseries and the "Great Expectations" miniseries. :-) The former must be still in the very early stages.

'"Winnie the Pooh" is 68 minutes of pure, hunny-covered satisfaction.'

Okay, I've been over at Fandom Wank too long... I need to go fish my brain out of the sewer.

You and me both. *hangs head*

I've come to the conclusion that they are holding photos of Richard Armitage back because they enjoy that it frustrates us. They ENJOY it.

"WB buys Viking epic starring Alexander Skarsgard." Yes. Please. Also I have the urge to go listen to The Immigrant Song now.

"Scott Speedman is probably not in this." Hehehe.

I honestly couldn't possibly be a bigger Zeppelin fan, and yet now, I cannot even think of The Immigrant Song without thinking of KITTENS.

Am I going to care about this? I can't tell if I care about this.

I didn't think I was going to care about Captain America (he has always kind of bored me), but I have been loving everything I've seen of it so far. For my money, Evans seems to be giving a performance that will make me actually like Cap (earnest + vulnerable + courageous), which was the biggest challenge, because in the comics, he always came across to me as such a stick.

Mostly, though, it was watching Thor that tipped me over into "omg I believe in this whole Avengers project I want to see them all together right now". I always liked RDJ's Tony Stark, and Thor was a hoot, and now I *am* excited to see Cap just because I know he's another piece of the puzzle adding up to what's going to be on screen together next year.

Also: period piece. The idea of a WWII superhero movie, and the whole "future tech as it was conceived of in the 40s" (retro-future, I guess) is REALLY appealing to me.

***

Meanwhile... I feel like a bad person for the fact that I'm giving this Carnahan movie the side-eye. Or... not a bad person, but I feel like a knee-jerk self-serious activist, I guess. But I've been following wolf conservation issues for decades, and I can't help but think that no, we haven't actually reached a point where it's a great idea to do a big movie about "Wolves: Terrifying, Implacable Killers". ("Natural" wolves, I mean; I don't care what movies do with werewolves.)

Perhaps when I read more about the story of the movie, it will surprise me. But on the face of it, it sounds really upsetting.

he's another piece of the puzzle adding up to what's going to be on screen together next year.

THIS. And pretty much everything you said in that whole paragraph. When Iron Man came out, and we first heard they were going to be doing alllll the Avengers, I was pretty skeptical that they'd be able to keep the momentum up. But so far they really have, and all the movies have been really fun to watch so far. So I'm really excited about Captain America, even though all I know about the character (and about Thor, come to think of it) is what I know from Twisted Toyfare Theater, and I doubt that's all that accurate.

I can't help but care about Captain America (despite the fact that my superhero interests lean more towards DC than Marvel), but that's mostly because Chris Evans+1940s= incredibly attractive. Marvel fangirls that are going to see the movie for less shallow reasons, I apologize for being one of those people. xP

I'm still debating whether I can bring myself to go see Winnie the Pooh. Maybe my friends and I will see it after Harry Potter to comfort ourselves (plus, I really want to see the Brave trailer on the big screen).

...that first dwarf has an...interesting hairstyle. *head tilt*

Why is Spidy's suit textured like a basketball? Do people need to contantly grip and dribble his head?

Also, Alexander Skarsgard could read the phone book for two hours and I would pay good money to see it! <3

OSHA regulations required him to put the texture on his suit so the people he saves would stop slipping as the were swinging across the city. ;-)

My first thought at that latest dwarves pic:

"It's the Warriors Three! You've got Volstagg, and Hogun... just swap that third guy out for a young Cary Elwes and you're good to go!"

Bofur is seriously creeping me out. It's the smirk, combined with all the fur-there's a 'creepy skeevy trapper' kind of vibe going on there.

Well, Bofur is James Nesbitt; of course he's creeping you out.

Ever since I saw Jekyll, I can't seem to see James Nesbitt as anything other than creepy. I was hoping The Hobbit would help with that, but the more I look at that picture, the creepier he looks.

(Deleted comment)
Of all the ridiculous places they use "saga" *cough*Twilight*cough* when they actually make a Viking film they call it an "epic." wtf.

It's going to be so, so bad. In the tradition of every Viking film ever. But I will see it, of course, because of ASkars.

heh- inappropriate use of the word "saga." Stephanie Meyer has spoiled it forever!

Oh man, I saw this really bad viking movie from Netflix called- aahhh what was it- Blood of Beasts? They had American accents and everything. It was fantastically awful, but it had a beauty and the beast-type twist to it that made me happy.

Anyway, yes. I will also be there for Skarsgaard loveliness. Speaking of which- the current season of True Blood is my favorite plotline from the books and I am SO. EXCITED.
