Robin Williams is Professor Strange?; Another look at Evans as Cap; Green Lantern promo images; RIP John Barry; Russian MST3K ripoff

From the "Take with a huge grain of salt" department, the internet has been flooded with the rumors that Robin Williams will be cast as Professor Hugo Strange in The Dark Knight Rises. Now, as much as I like to see Prof. Strange in a Batman movie and feel that Williams can do the job, that is asking a lot for there to be three villains in the movie. We already know Anne Hathaway is in the movie as Selina Kyle (to become Catwoman I guess) and Tom Hardy is in as Bane. If true, then let's hope it won't turn into a mess like Spider-Man 3 was.

The new issue of Empire magazine as Chris Evans in the Captain America suit, sans helmet. There doing a slightly better job of trying to get images of the suit out, but the helmet/mask seems to left off on most of them. Hmmm...

The Daily Blam has some promo images from the Green Lantern movie.You can view the rest of them here.

Composer John Barry passed away today at the age of 77. He is best known for the composer of 11 of the James bond films including Goldfinger and Thunderball. He won Academy Awards for Born Free, The Lion in Winter, Out of Africa and Dances with Wolves (which also won a Grammy Award). He also composed music for the films Midnight Cowboy, King Kong (1976), The Black Hole, Somewhere in Time, among others. He will be missed.


Les brought this to my attention. This is a show in Russia called "Project Popcorn." It is a ripoff of the classic TV show Mystery Science Theater 3000. In the words of Dr.Erhardt..."Enjoy!"
