Lunch Break Links: March 6, 2007
As advertised during Heroes last night, NBC is hosting 7+ minutes of Spider-Man 3 footage for today only. Check it.
Speaking of Heroes, you can discuss it here, here and here. I officially made the switch and chose Heroes over 24 this week, so I'll have to go online to catch Jack's exploits. Turns out he's off the hook, though, since Heroes is gone until April 23.
Bright Eyes is coming back to town this May.
We got a press release about this site called jaman.com, where you can "discover, enjoy and share world cinema."
Also heard from some PR folks about thepalestra.com, a cool news video site staffed by college students around the country. It's run by ex-NBC4 reporter Joe Weasel.
Speaking of TV news...
What have we learned from Katie Couric's first six months on the job?
Martin Scorsese seems to be keeping all his Departed collaborators close. We knew he was sticking with his main man Leo on the upcoming Teddy Roosevelt movie, and he's working with screenwriter William Monahan on a rock 'n' roll flick. Now he and Mark Wahlberg are reteaming to helm an HBO series about Atlantic City.
Zach Braff is about to get real paid.
Critics and the masses disagree? Who knew!?
Larry Charles (comedy director extraordinaire) inked a deal with ABC, but luckily it doesn't affect the Kanye West show he's developing for HBO.
Robert Smith performed with Korn? Really?
Here is a new video from +/-. They're playing Sunday at Andyman's Treehouse with locals Eric Metronome and Blake Miller.
And finally, a look at "our Ann Coulter problem." As long as we're slinging insults, Ann, you look like a man.
