A retrospect on this week's news...

The New Harry Potter Trailer.... it's all very exciting isn't it? If the trailer is anything to go by it will be 4 hours of dramatic music, shit loads of CGI, and a never ending climax. Just like Return of the King then.

Andrew Garfield as Spiderman.... I've never seen him in anything so I can't really comment. I mean, he looks like a Peter Parker type character, doesn't he? The only thing that troubles me is his age. He'll be 30 by the time the inevitable Spidey sequel comes out. Wasn't the whole point he was meant to be a younger Spiderman? Or are they planning to reboot this dying franchise again and again until no one cares?

Scream 4 and the hundreds of moderately famous people involved.... I have to admit, I have a bit of a soft spot for the Scream series (except 3, obviously). And the fact that Kevin Williamson is coming back to write is almost as exciting as unlimited ice cream factory at Pizza Hut. So why do I feel this is going to be a mediocre rehash of the first one? Probably because Williams/Craven's last venture, Cursed, was god awful!

And if you don't know the cast: Neve Campbell, Courtney Cox-Arquette, David Arquette Emma Roberts, Hayden Panettiere, Marielle Jaffe, Rory Culkin, Nico Tortorella, Erik Knudsen, Marley Shelton, Mary McDonnell, Alison Brie, Anthony Anderson and Adam Brody. Literally hundreds!
