To keep this site a bit more fresh and worthy of frequent visits, I’ll be starting to weave in some movie news amidst the reviews, DVD releases and box office roundup. It’ll be a bit of a work in progress, so some of the other items might be delayed a bit from time to time. For example, the weekly DVD releases are taking a few weeks off until I figure out just how much I can handle from one week to the next. Ideally, I’d like to have something up every day, but that might be a bit of wishful thinking at this point.
However, don’t be looking for this to degenerate into a daily gossip column. I’m not interested in what club Lindsey Lohan was hanging out in last night, or who Jessica Simpson is dating right now. Hopefully, you’re not either. But I will be trying to provide occasional updates on announced film projects and movie industry news that actually might mean something to the average viewer.
First up will be a wrap-up of some interesting items that emerged from Comic-Con, the annual convention in San Diego that just concluded over the weekend. True, it’s most known as a gathering for comic book and memorabilia geeks (and I use that term affectionately, so keep those pocket protectors in place). But Hollywood is now recognizing the convention’s value at building buzz for current and upcoming films. Just look at the swarm of movies that have been flooding multiplexes in recent years to know that comic book heroes equal big business for the movie industry.
