<i>Dark Knight</i> Shatters Box Office Records

The Dark Knight surprised no one by performing impressively at the box office. We all knew it would win the weekend. It had everything working toward that end: a talented star who died too soon in his final full performance; film number two in a hot franchise; and the adulation of pretty much every critic out there. There was no way this movie was going to open at anything but number one at the box office.

Previews and Pics Aplenty

Have you been keeping up with the Wallace & Gromit production blog? If not, you may have missed the news that the intrepid hero with literal feet of clay and his adorably long-suffering dog are back in action. Nick Park and friends have been hard at work on a new Wallace & Gromit short titled A Matter of Loaf and Death, and have been posting updates and pictures on a regular basis. This time around, the heroes are up to their robotic elbows in their new bread-baking scheme. This is all cracking good news, so break out the Wensleydale!

Disney Wants You! (To Buy More Crap)

Disney Wants You! (To Buy More Crap) I really should have looked into studying merchandising when I went to college. It seems to be one of those fields in which scores of people throw their ideas against a wall and every single thing sticks. And the company out there with the most crap stuck to their walls? Disney. I don't think they turn anyone's idea down. A plush chair in the shape of Ratatouille's Anton Ego? Sure, kids! Have a seat in the scary guy's lap. I think I even remember an Aladdin candy dispenser in the shape of a lamp that you had to actually rub in order to get the goods. Walking through the hallways of their merchandising/licensing department is probably like running the gauntlet through a cafeteria food fight, only instead of getting beaned by half-eaten tuna sandwiches and little cartons of milk, you're dodging stuffed Monsters Inc. plush dolls and 101 Dalmatians lunch boxes.
