The latest couple of Bond girls have been announced. The next Bond film will feature Olga Kurylenko as the female lead. I loved her in Hitman, so that's pretty exciting to me.
What's also exciting is that the movie will be based on another Fleming story. Not a novel, but the short story "Risico." There are some minor spoilers in the link, plus the announcement that Gemma Arterton has also been cast for a secondary role.
100 Million BC
The Asylum, rippers-off extraordinaire that they are, have released a trailer for their 10,000 BC swipe. Thing is, it doesn't look half bad.
Oh, it will be. It just doesn't look it in the trailer.
The Host Prequel
I haven't seen The Host yet. Maybe I'll wait until after I see the prequel.

The things they can do with dead trees these days.

In a recent email newsletter, Warren Ellis mentioned that he's looking for old Marvel properties to resurrect and talks about some he's already dismissed. He says, "I thought about Shang-Chi for a second, but that book's useless to me without Fu Manchu, and Marvel don't have the Rohmer license anymore."
I sort of agree with him except that people have been figuring out how to do Fu Manchu books without actually calling him Fu Manchu for a while now. It's too bad. I would've loved to have read that.
