Next, Fox has announced that “The Sarah Connor Chronicles” will premiere on Monday, January 14, 2008, 8pm ET/PT.

Interview: Casey Moore talks to us about his film Finding the Future. This film takes a look at the genre from the perspective of those who help create it, star in its products and the fans who attend the conventions dedicated to it.

Future Talk: Jim Carrey is set to star in a remake of “A Christmas Carol”, done by Robert Zemeckis using the Live/CGI blend that began with The Polar Express and evolved with Beowulf.

Also, Naomi Watts is set to star in an upcoming remake of The Birds, a version that’s being promoted as being more faithful to the original short story by Daphne du Maurier than Alfred Hitchcock’s adaptation had been.

    Another thing to consider, with Bale as Batman in a Justice League, is what it would cost to have him, and then spending all that money on him it would more than likely end up being the Batman and friends show.

    Good Show!
