It's here, The Batman Trailer!!!!:
All I can say is...AWESOME! Okay, it's only a teaser trailer but it gives a pretty good impression what we can
expect of Chris Nolan's Batman Begins. The cast includers Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Gary Oldman,
Morgan Freeman, Ken Watanabe and Liam Neeson! The film will hit theatres next summer. Click on Batman to download the trailer.
But there's more, you also have to check out this wonderful trailer for Mamoru Oshii's Ghost in the Shell 2: Innocence!

Naomi Watts talks King Kong!:
King Kong star Naomi Watts talked to Scifi Wire about
Peter Jackson's remake of the classic monster film. Watts mentioned that she will act against the giant ape with
the help of Andy Serkis (Gollum) who'll perform the ape's movements and voice:
"I won't be acting against nothing. That's one of the things he told me in our initial meeting, because I would be very worried about that. Andy Serkis is going to be not only a character in the film, but he's going to be a pair of eyes for me to look at on set. There's a huge amount of emotion looking at him."
Watts also talked about the actresses of the classic and the previous remake:
"Fay Wray is a huge inspiration, and so is Jessica Lange. It's a very iconic movie and iconic role, so there's a little bit of fear about that, but also intrigue. And Peter Jackson is a genius. He will make it his own and do something completely different and modernize it, even though it's set in the '30s. He's got some great ideas, which I'm not at liberty to divulge right now."
Man, I can't wait, I think Peter Jackson and Naomi Watts will make a great movie. King Kong is scheduled for a December 2005 release.
The killer will be back! Leatherface himself, Andrew Bryniarski, talked to MTV about a Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel:
"Until then, we're going to look at script ideas and they're looking at exactly how far to go back into a prequel story. There's been 33 murders that have been established at the Hewitt farmhouse. You've only seen a few of 'em. And there's a lot of backstory with what caused the head-skinner to go horribly wrong."

Wow, got an e-mail of Superman himself about my World's Finest painting! I made this painting
with the help of the photos of this fanmade Superman-Batman film, directed by Sandy Collora. Michael O'Hearn plays Superman and
here's what he had to say about my painting:
"All I can say is GREAT JOB REGGIE!!! Not only on the drawing you did of me, but the rest of the stuff on your website looks great. I'm going to post your photo on my website with a link to your site."
Hehe, how cool is that!!! Find out more about Mike O'Hearn (Bodybuilder, Powerlifter, Martial Artist) by clicking on his photo. Click on my painting for a larger version.
