A less strenuous linkspam to start off the week

Before we get to movie news: a few updates on the Norway situation.

@BreakingNews: Norwegian police revise death toll in Utoya youth camp massacre down to 68 from 86; @REUTERSFLASH: Norwegian police say at least 100,000 people take part in Oslo march in support of attack victims; Norway killer claims he had help; manifesto outlined plans to attack writers & lit professors; @krazycat/krazycat: New blog post: Oslo - reflection and tears. And from gryster:

Just a small message from Norway:

There was a march of roses in Oslo today. It is the most beautiful reaction I have ever seen. The actual marching bit was cancelled because there was SO MANY PEOPLE. People were asked to leave their roses all over the city, and they really did. All of downtown Oslo was just covered with roses.

There's a link here. There's a slideslow at the top, with pictures from all over the country. I just wanted to show you this, (and ask you to share it) because I'm guessing it won't necessarily be shown on American TV. It was a beautiful thing to be a part of.

Movie news.

'Captain America' Crushes 'Harry Potter' At Box Office. Oh... snap.

The Best Clips and Trailers from This Year's Comic-Con.

First Look: Bradley Cooper as Lucifer in 'Paradise Lost' (Plus Panel Quotes and Concept Art from Comic-Con).

Your first look at Ghost Rider 2's flaming skull stuntman. Not shown: flaming urination.

First look at Judge Dredd shows who you won't be for Halloween in 2012. Poor Karl Urban.

The Battleship Poster Revealed. "Based on the Hasbro board game, the Peter Berg stars Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Rihanna and Hamish Linklater and is said to unfold as a massive Naval adventure across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against an otherworldly force." As you do.

Film poster artists revive a dying craft. And they need to do something about that Battleship poster.

First Look at Gerard Butler in Potential Oscar Hopeful 'Machine Gun Preacher': "A film based on the true story of Sam Childers, a former drug-dealing criminal who finds faith leading him on a path to East Africa. Shocked by the mayhem in Sudan, Childers becomes a crusader for hundreds of refugee children. Inspired to create a safe haven for the multitudes fleeing enslavement by the brutal Lord's Resistance Army, he restores peace to their lives and eventually his own."

A Second International Trailer for Clive Owen's 'Intruders.'

Two New Clips from 'Fright Night' Suggest McLovin Reads Too Much 'Twilight.' Also, because I know my audience, this:

Margin Call Trailer: All Star Cast Starts The Financial Crisis, by which they mean "an amazing cast that includes Stanley Tucci, Zachary Quinto, Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore, Jeremy Irons, Simon Baker, Paul Bettany and Penn Badgley."

Alternate Opening Sequence from 'Superman Returns' Unveiled, and apparently it's ten million dollars straight down the drain.

Warner Bros Hot For 'Arthur & Lancelot.' "The deal essentially squashed several other sword and the stone pics that Warner Bros was developing. That included Bryan Singer's remake of the 1981 John Boorman pic Excalibur, and the version that Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie had with Trainspotting scribe John Hodge." People, King Arthur was only seven years ago. I KNOW, I WAS THERE.

Dark Knight Rises Adds Stargate's Christopher Judge.

'Limitless' Helmer Neil Burger Aboard New Version Of Bonnie And Clyde Outlaw Tale. Perhaps more relevant to this readership, Burger also directed The Illusionist.

Hey look, James Franco to reprise role of "Hey look, it's James Franco on General Hospital" on General Hospital.

And finally, a movie I am guessing will be worthy of the Uwe Boll Slot: Dialogue: ‘Conan the Barbarian’ Star Rose McGowan Talks Marique’s Daddy Issues, Long Claws, Heavy Makeup.
