NEWS: Download the Dark Knight script, Watchmen Posters, and Magneto...


Hey guys! Here are your noteable headlines for this Tuesday, the 11th of November...

- So, as the Dark Knight nears the $1 BILLION worldwide mark, Warner Brothers has made the screenplay, which is going to be Oscar nominated and is probably the best part of this great film, available for free at their website...

- In other superhero news, the rough plot synopsis for the upcoming superhero film, X-Men Origins: Magneto, has been released...

“The original X-Men film began with a prologue that showed the character as a child being led to a concentration camp by Nazis and that is the period in which the Magneto film will take place. This setup will allow a future villain to at least flirt with the designation of protagonist since the character will be seen almost exclusively in his formative years. The storyline will heavily involve Professor X, the wheelchair-using X-Men leader. That character was a soldier in the allied force that liberated the concentration camps. The professor meets Magneto after the war and while they bond over the realization that they are alike in their special powers, their differences soon turn them into enemies.”

I am personally more excited about seeing this film than the upcoming Wolverine film. What about you?

- 6 New Watchmen posters have been released via Entertainment Weekly, Access Hollywood, MTV, LA Times, USA Today, and WiReD...check them out below!





All are pretty awesome. I know I've been talking about this a lot lately, but not only is it something I'm insanely interested in (I have more anticipation for this than I did for The Dark Knight), but they are FLOODING the web and print with promotion. The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button comes out in about 5 weeks, and this past weekend released its 1ST poster. Watchmen now has 9, not including the seperate character posters released at ComiCon this year, and the first one released at the event in 2007. The marketing has been brilliant, and I can't wait to see the new trailer this Friday.

- Twilight Fans are officially insane...Thanks to /film for the info...
And that appearance tonight in San Francisco? It’s been canceled. Over 3,000 Twilight fans, mostly teenage girls, showed up at the Stonestown Galleria early this morning. That is more than 10 times the amount of people that police officials were expecting. Apparently a few of the teenage fans were trampled, and one girl reportedly broke her nose. The event was cancelled for safety reasons. Some fans had traveled with their families from Los Angeles, Hawaii and Arizona. Watch a video report from the mall on TMZ.

- Jaden Smith, Will Smith's son, will be starring in a remake of The Karate Kid...

- Finally, it seems that after long talks, Baz Lurhman did indeed agree to rewrite the ending to his upcoming film, Australia. Early test screenings came out a little negative on the ending, and the studio felt as though a more positive ending would work better...

That's all I've got for now, come back later for more news and remember to come back here Thursday night for my early review of Quantum of Solace!

Go see something good!
