Meryl Streep and Sandra Bullock really together? Not in the sense of Sandy's Oscar speech but as mother and daughter?

300-D? Zack Snyder, who's making Guardians Of Ga'Hoole in 3-D and is converting Sucker Punch to the format, is open to the retro-stereoscoping of 300. This is surely Spartier!

Bindi Irwin does a spot of panda-whispering to promote straight-to-DVD Free Willy: Escape From Pirate Cove, another production that buccaneered the status quo by adamantly refusing to use falsies.

Rather than just use kids to blurb-quote your movie when no-one else will, why don't distributors find out which 80-100 movies these young'uns had to have so bad and use the "So good your children will beg you to steal it!" angle.

Because Mamma Mia! was a successful song-show-movie, now Tom Hanks is doing the same for Green Day's concept album American Idiot! Tom, after Apollo 11 and From Earth To Moon, why not Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon? It screams out for 3-D and IMAX and a million speakers all blasting out! Upside: repeat business from all the fans who can't remember the first viewing except to say it was "awesome".
