The trailer for Twilight: New Moon hit the web shortly ago, and it looks like the franchise might be good for another movie or two. Although I am not sure you can use the word franchise when speaking of a body of work one film deep so far. Now that Barry Sonnenfeld is no longer making Pushing Daisy’s episodes, his new project looks to be the iconic Tom Swift.

There were a few details I can quibble with, that still didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the movie; but the folks at Sci-Fi Wire said it first and better, so read their version. Above all, go see the movie!

Ghost In The Shell 2.0 is not a remake of the Starwars school, but rather an updating of the original masterpiece using modern animation tools and techniques. Scene for scene, it is exactly the same movie… except it looks and sounds better. There is an excellent collection of old and new frames for comparison at Asian Blueray Guide to give you an idea of the differences between the two versions.

The Festival starts June 8th and runs to the 13th, showing over 500 films from 63 countries, including 10 feature Film Official Selections including Coraline, Monsters vs. Aliens, and Redline.
