Happy GROUNDHOG DAY!
Yuperoony, it's GROUNDHOG DAY. I wonder what that little guy sees.... a terrible cover for the re-release of the film on DVD? It would appear so:

Why is he pointing to that clock?

It looks like the design company got the boy who makes the tea to go out into the street and pick a rough~sleeper (check out how PC I am!) and asked them to make the flippin' cover. What is with BILL MURRAY'S face? And that clock? What the eff? Great film though. Coincidentally, in the same week as Groundhog Day, GEORGE BUSH made his STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS this week too. One event features an unintelligible, weird~looking and stupid (probably smelly too) creature making predictions about the future based on no facts whatsoever and the other event features a groundhog..... Ah, thank you. More INDY pictures? Well, here's one:

I recognise those boxes...

The new DOCTOR WHO 'cinema' trailer has hit YOUTUBE already, albeit in a very poor quality form but still, undeniably, need~for~new~trouser making. Here's a shot of BILLIE and CATHERINE TATE from it, seems they have been aged slightly:

One says, "Dock~tah" and the other says, "Dock~tah"

Only 'joking', to balance up the 'sex~war', here's some old men looking less than handsome: COLUMBO and the chimney sweep who's now a doctor apparently...

"There's just one thing I don't understand...how did that car fly?"

Casting for the STAR WARS musical continues with the role of another (and less well~known) protocol droid, TC~14, being taken by NICOLE "Just 'Cos You Got Yourself Sperminated Don't Mean That I'll Go Easy On You" KIDMAN. Personally, I think she's over~qualified for this role....

Please tell me she wore that for a bet.

DARTH VADER will be a difficult one to get an actor for but it looks like this little guy will take on the role of the Dark Lord when he takes his helmet off:

"Tell you're sister, you were right."

Another musical looks to be hitting the stages very soon, here's a pic of the actress who will be taking one of the main roles in it:

Fly my pretties!

Yup, that's NATALIE "Easties" CASSIDY looking, erm, lurv~ah~lee but what show is it? And what part is she playing? Well, here's a clue. Compare the above picture with the one below.

"Grandad, where's Martin?"


'Til the next time,
C.

    Thanks for the link to the PIRATE video, Cam -- we'll see how long that remains there...

    I had exactly the same thought about the GROUNDHOG DAY cover when I saw it, but don't blame the designer, blame the market researchers and the studio executives... In the States, covers with prominent stars featured on posters and DVD covers statistically sell WAY better than obscure images or reproductions of more abstract movie posters. Compare the cover of just about ANY less-than-blockbuster US movie DVD release with its UK counterpart. It's why the DOCTOR WHO DVD covers get the star spangled bowlderization treatment when they're released here. I still buy the UK releases despite the exchange rate. Plus, if Steve Roberts of the Restoration Team caught me buying the US covers he'd bowlderize ME!

    And I know all this, of course, because I am now an American Citizen as of yesterday -- WOO-HOO! Thatcher couldn't make me vote but all those Republicans who LOVE BUSH and LOVE DICK have made me sign up to be counted!

    Rich!
    (sending you the $$$ I owe you right NOW!)

    Slightly better quality trailer here. http://youtube.com/watch?v=L33XBnt_KZs It's still a hand held recording, but you can hear the dialog better (despite the talking people) and the picture is clearer too. Best part? I think some people clapped at the end!

    Thanks Anon,

    I found that one last night too. It is a lot better than the first but still not great. But very watchable nonetheless.

    I'm off right now to see it at the cinema, huzzah!

    RICH - There seems to be a phenomenon since AMERICAN PIE where all covers or posters for comedies have to have bold red lettering with a lot of white in the background. The cast are also stuck in a very poor photoshop kind of way. Odd size heads, etc...

    An American Citizen you say, how fancy! Well done. Over here the news is full of stories about the US Primaries. There seems to be more interest in the US Political scene than the current UK one.
