The AC: not as fixed as previously supposed

I'm not saying I'll be able to keep up a steady stream of linkspam posts; I'm just saying I'm going to try.

@cleolinda: Ah, the hot dwarves. RT @comingsoonnet: Fili and Kili Revealed in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

@LJmysticowl: @cleolinda There’s some distinct dwarf-elf interbreeding going on with Kili, he didn’t get that “I make my own wind” hair from Uncle Thorin.

They're totally saving Richard Dwarfitage for last. I can feel it.

First Trailer For Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows; Five New Pics from 'Sherlock Holmes 2.'

The Dark Knight Rises teaser poster: A dash of Inception, a hint of bureaucratic oversight.

Netflix Announces New [separate] DVD and Streaming Plans.Which would be great, if Netflix's entire catalogue was available to stream.

@scottEweinberg: Half the studios don't give Netflix new releases for two weeks, and half of the Instawatch titles are pure crap. So raise prices now. Smart.

Speaking of which, Hollywood is about to repeat the catastrophic mistakes of the music industry.

The new Evil Dead remake or possibly sequel really is happening, maybe, according to some people. Including Bruce Campbell, who is now on Twitter. 

Ed Norton In Talks to Face Off Against Jeremy Renner in 'The Bourne Legacy.'

Ruth Wilson in Talks for Lone Ranger Leading Lady.

First Snapshot of the Poster for Martin Scorsese's 'Hugo' Cabret.

The One-Sheet for 'The Thing' Hits. It's a prequel, so... sure? I can't remember if I knew that they were remaking this (premaking this?) or not.

Trailer For Vera Farmiga's Excellent Directorial Debut Higher Ground.

Santa's son shows you some top-secret stuff in the trailer premiere for the animated 'Arthur Christmas.' You care because "Starring: James McAvoy, Hugh Laurie, Jim Broadbent, Bill Nighy and Imelda Staunton," that's why.

Horror/Trailer: 'Juan of the Dead' Brings the Zombies, Cuban Style.

Neil Gaiman on the American Gods HBO series and when the robots are taking over.

Big Q&A! George R.R. Martin talks 'Dance With Dragons' & 'Game of Thrones.' Which I keep meaning to watch. Well, I guess I can in its entirety now.

Arnold Schwarzenegger moving forward with Western 'The Last Stand.' Okay. Close your eyes and get a good strong image of Schwarzenegger in your mind. Now, imagine him doing the John Wayne/Jeff Bridges role in True Grit. I'm just saying, it'll keep you entertained for a while.

And finally, for the Uwe Boll Slot: George C. Scott watches the trailer for Adam Sandler's 'Jack And Jill,' reacts accordingly.

If I didn't know any better, I'd swear that Lucille Bluth is in charge of which dwarf pics get released and when, and that she's getting off on withholding the Richard Dwarfitage. Look at her, getting off.

More Holmes.

I'm happy.

I can imagine Peter going up to the makeup people as they put Richard's makeup on and saying "Nope, he's still too good-looking."

I dunno, they didn't change Aidan Turner that much.

Only sad thing about the brilliant SH:GoS trailer is the disappointing lack of Mycroft. Hopefully other trailers will make up for this.

Drag!RDJ promises to be amusing, though.

My thoughts exactly! Fry as Mycroft seems like such perfect casting and I can't wait to see it! I also eagerly await the tons of fan fiction that will no doubt come forth when more pictures/footage of RDJ in drag is released.

My shallow little heart is thrilled that they're not covering up the cute boys with lumpy dwarf makeup. There's no point in pretending that I won't enjoy these movies that much more with Richard Armitage's face in full view.

I need to catch up on Game of Thrones, too. I watched the first episode and then lost track of it.

Re: the make-up, they probably learnt from how miserable John Rhys-Davies was, with the allergic reaction to it all. Plus, really really ridiculously good looking actors.

Damn. I thought "Sherlock Holmes 2" referred to the sequel to the BBC 2010 with Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch. I love Robert Downey Jr., and I love Sherlock Holmes, but I don't love Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes. Just for starters, he looks totally wrong, and it matters. Why o why did they not include even a nanosecond of Stephen Fry as Mycroft? That's probably the only reason I will see the movie.

I think this is the first trailer, i.e., the shorter teaser trailer.

How did they manage to make Aidan Turner look even more attractive than he normally does? I am still somewhat disturbed by the idea of hot dwarves, but that picture is like whoah.

I'm just gonna repeat myself - I eagerly await the Vampire!Kili fic.

I wondered how they were gonna lure in the teenies. NOW I KNOW.

Peter Jackson, Evil Genius.

(Actually, it was probably Fran. Fran and Philippa apparently had a lot to do with some of the male casting on the first trilogy? Someone help me out here, I can't remember which actor it was they specifically sold him on. "JUST TRUST US.")

Aidan Turner: hotter as a vampire or a dwarf?

I think I may have to go with dwarf. At least the angst dial will be turned waaaaaaaaaaaay down.

The first thing I thought when I saw the Sherlock Holmes trailer: "So that's what she looks like without all the piercings!" Quickly followed by "OMG RDJ GUUUUH"

OMG. I clicked on the Ah-nuld piece thinking that, okay, there were a lot of Germans settling in Texas, it could work....and it's set in the modern day? Not a cowboy period piece. Bordertown sheriff vs drug cartel. Okay then!

Honestly, I was shocked and appalled that Richard Armitage had been cast as a dwarf. I didn't think it was at all possible for there to be such a thing as hot dwarves. I was wrong, clearly, since Aidan Turner is actually hotter as a dwarf than he was as a vampire. What kind of Opposite World am I living in that that's even possible? Anyhow, now I'm all BRING ON THE THE HOT DWARVES.

Yay, the Holmes trailer makes it look like it's filled with everything I loved about the first.

Also, Vera Farmiga's movie looks really interesting--I hope I get a chance to see it before it hits DVD.

Being dead just annoyed George C Scott more :)

THING prequel looks interesting. John Carpenter's 1982 masterpiece can't be equalled, but this one at least isn't a remake!

Regarding the Sherlock Holmes trailer, I spent, like, half of it thinking that Watson's scarf looked rather snuggley and snazzy (if simple) and thinking it might be fun to knit one up.

The rest of it was spent thinking, "Whee, more Sherlock Holmes fun!"

Oh, good, it's not just me then. ;-)
