Meanwhile, I was extremely productive yesterday because my internet connection decided to hate me. Over and over and over again. As such, there was no linkspam. But a few key things happened, and I would like to mention them briefly and then catch other things later tonight or tomorrow:
'Titanic' co-star Gloria Stuart dies at 100; Gloria Stuart: Remembering the ‘Titanic’ grande dame.
Tarantino's Longtime Editor, Sally Menke, 56, Dies in Los Angeles Heat Wave.
Is 'The Hobbit' Cursed? Peter Jackson Threatens to Move Production Over Union Woes. Did you guys try to film something over an ancient burial ground? Because, seriously, I can't figure out why we can't make this happen.
This is the best publishing wank in a long, long time. A Turkish woman criticizes Christopher Pike's sloppy, stereotypical take on Turkey in The Secret of Ka. A Pike editor shows up to mansplain to her why it's all totes okay and she doesn't know anything anyway. Then it is revealed in the ETA that... the "editor" IS Christopher Pike. Also, he leaves himself sockpuppet reviews about how his own books are masterpieces that changed his life. AMAZING.
Teaser Trailer for the Coen Brothers' 'True Grit.'
Aronofsky in the Running to Direct Superman leading to inevitable speculation that Natalie Portman will play Lois Lane.
First Look at Daniel Radcliffe in Woman in Black. I... how old is he, again? I don't feel so good.
Newcomer Mackenzie Foy to play Renesmee in ‘Breaking Dawn.’
It's really happening.
