Meet the new Green Lantern.
Warner Bros. has finally cast Ryan Reynolds in the title role for their upcoming movie, after months of speculation.
I think Ryan will be a good fit as long as he agrees to work out a bit.
I mean, who wants a superhero with all of that body fat on them?
Speaking of body fat, the first promo poster for Jake Gyllenhaal's upcoming "Prince of Persia" movie was also released this week. It doesn't come out until next year, but the studio knows that the sooner you release tidbits about the plot...people start to decide whether they want to see the movie or not.
The only bits they've released so far have just been a few subtle visual images like this...
I don't know what they're trying to say about the movie with this image, but I have a feeling that some people already have their tickets.

And finally, the OneRing.Net has revealed that landscaping has finally begun on the New Zealand Hobbiton location for the two upcoming "Hobbit" movies that are being made over the next couple of years.
As some of your remember, I paid a visit to Hobbiton last year and had a really great time.
It would be cool to be able to go back when the location is all ready for shooting and see the transformation. However, I'm sure they close the set to visitors once things are in production.
Perhaps if I bring the Prince of Persia and Green Lantern, they'll allow me and my two fat friends in for a quick peek.
It would be rude not to...
