:: As part of their 31 Days of Oscar celebration, Turner Movie Classics will be showing commercial free, The Return Of The King, Sunday, February 10th at 9:30pm EST.
:: Rumor alert! Can the Iggy Pop biopic at last be happening? According to what Elijah says in an article that has yet to be translated, perhaps so. Shooting could possibly being sometime this March. Stay tuned to find out if the wait is finally over.
ETA: Here is a very rough translation of what Elijah says about the project:
Are you nervous before filming to portray one of your idols Iggy Pop?
"I'm a big fan of The Stooges and I'm excited we will being filming in March. I'm going to train to prepare myself physically. I'm learning to play the drums and the guitar. I have done work with my voice, because his voice is deeper than mine. Once this character gets going, everything will be much easier."
That's pretty much the essence of it. Thanks so much to Mumis for this general translation.
:: Day Zero is screening in Hanover, NH Friday, February 1st at 7:30pm EST at the Hopkins Center. Writer/EP Rob Malkani and Tony Moody will be there for Q&A afterwards. Thanks for the news Brenda!

:: Happy 27th Birthday, Elijah from all of us here at A&F. I hope this year brings you lots of joy both in your professional and personal life. Deenan made a birthday video for Elijah and was so kind to share it with all of us.
:: There are a lot of clips from The Oxford Murders floating around on YouTube but be careful: some of them contain major spoilers. If you do want to get spoiled, you can watch the clips: , [2a], [2b].
:: Salwood and Saura translated an interview that Elijah did for the Spanish site Elmundo and they were so kind to share it with us. It can be found in our interview section.
:: Ion Cinema features a nice interview with Robert Malkani, the writer and co-producer of Day Zero. You can read it here.
:: Tony Moody just let me know that unfortunately Day Zero will not be shown a second week in New York nor Seattle. The movie had the bad fortune of running during the week where they announce the Oscar nominations. Every single of the other films where nominated for at least one Oscar so they did not stand a chance. On behalf of Tony: "Thanks to everyone who came out in support of the film."
:: We've added movie stills from The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King to our movie stills section - page 1 and page 2. Stills from the other two films will follow during the next weeks.

:: Box Office Mojo estimates that Day Zero took in close to $13,000 for the weekend, showing in only two theaters. Let's hope the numbers stay true or better when the actual numbers are given. Remember, the better it does in NYC and the Seattle area, the better the chances of it coming to you.

That's all... for now.
