W. - W.

W. - W.

Whatever your opinion of Oliver Stone’s George Bush bio-pic, W. is – or will be – Lions Gate hit a major homerun when its first-look trailer generated the type of water cooler buzz money simply can’t buy. TV and Radio talk shows had a field day this morning trying to dissect what they saw in the trailer, while going overboard analyzing just what Stone is up to in his movie’s portrayal of a sitting U.S President. While the final cut of the movie will be the judge of that, W. got the launch it wanted, at least in terms of public awareness.  

It’s two days before the film is released and finding advance reviews for Universal’s Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is a scarcity indeed. At this point there are only two posted on the RottenTomatoes website and both are in the negative camp. Not a good sign, although the movie has decent tracking numbers.

Some TV news of interest – actress Katie Holmes (Batman Begins) – will make a guest appearance this season on the ABC program PUSHING DAISIES. It will be her first television outing since Dawson’s Creek; that according to TV Guide. Let’s see – I’ll do an episode of Pushing Daisies over The Dark Knight. I just don’t get it!
