PCR #188. (Vol. 4, No. 44) This edition is for the week of October 27--November 2, 2003.
If you get the chance, make sure you catch "Alien" while it's on the big screen. If you do, you'll be rewarded with the answer to the questions, "What the hell happened to Tom Skerritt after he left the bridge?" I remember Famous Monsters magazine ran a photo of the "post-bridge" Captain Dallas, but it was great to see it on screen.
In an unusual move, Warner Brothers will premiere "The Matrix: Revolutions" at the exact same time world wide. In a press release sent out by the studio, "This unprecedented distribution scenario will make the highly anticipated film available to fans simultaneously at 6 a.m. in Los Angeles, 9 a.m. in New York, 2 p.m. in London, 5 p.m. in Moscow, 11 p.m. in Tokyo and at corresponding times in over 50 additional countries worldwide." Thankfully I will be seeing it before Wednesday (look for my review this coming Tuesday) so I won't have to drag my butt to the theatre at 8 a.m.
Also, Disney has announced that they are pulling "The Alamo" from their Holiday schedule, another glitch in what has been a problem project. Originally to be directed by Ron Howard with Russell Crowe starring, the pair walked after Disney insisted the violence be kept to "PG 13" levels, something Howard could not promise. Look for "The Alamo" in April, 2004.
Maybe God IS trying to tell Mel Gibson and the cast and crew of "The Passion of Jesus" something. This past week star Jim Caviezel was struck by lightning on the set. But that's nothing. One of the production assistants has been struck TWICE in recent weeks.
THE KID STAYS IN THE CARTOON, TOO
HOW SUPER IS HE?
HE'S STILL GOT A NAME
Well, that's it for now. Have a safe and happy Halloween. See ya!
