“Soulmates are like fish, they’re everywhere.”
A lovelorn fishmonger who has spent nearly a decade trying to win back his ex-girlfriend gets involved in a case of mistaken ethnicity in this warm-hearted romantic comedy. It’s been eight years since Jake’s girlfriend left him, and despite the fact that she’s now married with three children he refuses to move on. Fed up with their depressive pal’s unwillingness to let go of the past, Jake’s friends set him up on a blind date with a beautiful Italian woman from Boston’s North End. Though Jake is convinced that such a woman would never even consider dating a non-Italian, a quick crash course in how to fake it may prove just the trick to helping him learn to love once again.

First alluded to in 1977′s ‘Star Wars: Episode IV — A New Hope,’ the Clone Wars are a conflict between the Galactic Republic, led by the Jedi Knights and their clone army, and the nefarious separatist movement of Chancellor Palpatine (who later becomes the emperor). Not previously seen in any of the saga’s six films, the Clone Wars take place between the events of 2002′s Episode II and 2005′s Episode III.
David Goyer, co-writer for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, is suggesting that the villains in the next film might not be household names.
Even though there is no Batman 3 currently in development, that hasn’t stopped speculation and rumors from running rampant about which characters might terrorize Gotham City in a potential third installment.
David Goyer, who co-wrote the script for Batman Begins and developed the story for The Dark Knight with director Christopher Nolan, suggested to SCI FI Wire that the villains in the next film might not be household names. “There’s no reason why we necessarily have to use the same three or four that are still around,” Goyer said. “I mean, Batman’s got a wide variety, [a] rogues’ gallery. Certainly we used two in the first movie that hadn’t been in the films before.”
MTV asked a number of prominent comic book writers and execs who they think should be the villain in Batman 3. For example, DC Comics Executive Editor Dan DiDio suggested Professor Hugo Strange. He added, “Characters like Catwoman, Riddler, and Hugo Strange make sense, because they’re counterpoints to Batman’s psychosis and fears. The Joker creates chaos. Two-Face shows the duality of the Batman-Bruce Wayne relationship, and how Batman’s found peace with that duality. Batman searches for answers, and the Riddler has questions. Batman is driven, and Catwoman is sexual. They play well against each other and challenge aspects of what makes a hero.”
30 Days of Night creator Steve Niles said, “I’d like to see Catwoman over the Penguin. Not as a prostitute, and not as the Tim Burton version — what, cats sniffed her back to life? — but perhaps the Adam Hughes design, with the goggles. That’s very realistic. I can imagine her in street clothes that are designed just right. I also like the idea of them creating villains just for the movies.”

Release date: Friday August 22, 2008 Genre: Action/Adventure/Sci-Fi/Thriller Director: Paul W.S. Anderson Studio: Universal Pictures Producer(s): Jeremy Bolt, Paul W.S. Anderson, Paula Wagner Screenplay: Paul W.S. Anderson Cast: Jason Statham, Joan Allen, Tyrese Gibson, Ian McShane Official Site:deathracemovie.net Rating:R for strong violence and language Available film art:Death Race movie posters
Jason Statham leads the cast of an action-thriller set in the post-industrial wasteland of tomorrow, with the world’s most brutal sporting event as its backdrop. A penitentiary full of felons has inspired the jailers to create a grisly pastime ripe for lucrative kickbacks. Now, adrenalized inmates, a global audience hungry for televised violence and a spectacular arena come together to form the “Death Race.”
Three-time speedway champion Jensen Ames (Statham) is an expert at survival in the harsh landscape that has become our country. Just as he thinks he has turned his life around, the ex-con is framed for a gruesome murder he didn’t commit. Forced to don the mask of the mythical driver Frankenstein — a crowd favorite who seems impossible to kill — Ames is given an easy choice by Terminal Island’s warden (Joan Allen): suit up or rot away in a cell.
His face hidden by a metallic mask, one convict will be put through an insane three-day challenge. Ames must survive a gauntlet of the most vicious criminals in the country’s toughest prison to claim the prize of freedom. Driving a monster car outfitted with machine guns, flamethrowers and grenade launchers, one desperate man will destroy anything in his path to win the most twisted spectator sport on Earth.
