One nut goes to Moriarty at AICN, one nut goes to our buddy Patrick at Corona. Viva la revolution!
I’d also like to send a thank you and a warm “fuck you” to all our new friends who have stumbled upon the site lately. We have a whole slew of shit to cover, so let’s get cracking.

Simon West and the producers of the recently opened piece of shit Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Opening this past Friday to near universal scorn and a box office gross even more inflated than Angelina Jolie’s tits, it seems West and company are more concerned with protecting their fragile egos than about making the best film they could. Check out the cavalier attitude of the producers as they announce their plans to franchise LC:TR even before the first film opened. Last year, another group of haughty producers did the same thing. Unfortunately for them, Battlefield: Earth has a dreadlocked alien John Travolta instead of a mammary enhanced Angelina Jolie in hot pants and a mini T. I doubt B:E 2 will ever see the light of day. Despite the near $50M opening weekend, don’t be too shocked if LC:TR doesn’t clear $80M after six weeks.

Mr. X was nice enough to visit me again to talk about the ending he saw of this very early director’s cut. I usually have a problem who come into my bathroom while I am taking a shower, but Mr. X was kind enough to loufa my back, so I forgave him this time. With only a few weeks until opening day, we’ll see if this is the ending Tim Burton uses.

Those biding their time until Eight Crazy Nights, Adam Sandler’s animated holiday musical, gets released, are going to have to wait a little while longer. Sony has quietly moved the film out of its prime December 14th opening and stacked it on the dreaded “2002 TBD” list.

Planet Of The Apes… Don’t Think “Get Your Paws Off Me, You Damn Dirty Apes”… Think Congo
I saw that and just about laughed. You see, I haven’t been looking forward to the POTA remake, but when Mr. X caught me, wanting to tell me what he thought, I couldn’t resist…

I don’t know if this one is funny or sad.
The Walt Disney Company will soon be announcing some major chances in their animation department. Seems the first day wide numbers for Atlantis has them ready to shut down the department entirely, the same way they did after The Fox and Hound. First off, the axe is expected to fall heaviest in the animation storyboard and development departments, as 500 workers will be out of a job in the coming weeks, those being pinkslipped will be personally chosen by Mr. Eisner himself. The remaining 1,400 or so will have the choice of being bought out of their contracts or accepting a 45% pay cut across the board, while the remaining work will be farmed out to places like Pixar to lower their overhead. Disney is also going to cancel 3 of the 7 animation projects they currently have on the board. Which ones haven’t been decided yet.
Meanwhile, my source over at Dreamworks tells me that they are planning not one but TWO Shrek sequels and a direct to DVD story of Isaiah full length animated feature.
Now, I wonder how in the hell that happened…
