Anyway. Linkspam. I've decided not to post generic Sundance links, or at least very few of them, because there's dozens of them on my feeds and I have neither the time nor the fortitude to deal with that right now. If it's a specific news item, sure, it'll go in, but as mentioned previously, several movie sites are doing exhaustive coverage (off the top of my head: EW; MTV; Defamer), so, you know: enjoy.

It's an arduous task that's compounded by an unusual problem: The writer of the play is a vampire").

Hugh Jackman Reaches Out Via AICN, Attaches Photo (Badass New Full Cast Photo from 'X-Men Origins: Wolverine'!). Maybe they're just used to this over at AICN, but I think I would sit there staring for a good twenty minutes at my computer if I got an email verifiably from Hugh Jackman.
