WATCHMEN

There's more looks inside the beleaguered blockbuster at Latino Review and at MTV.  

Directed by Zack Snyder, release date: March 6, 2009.

CORALINE

There's an article in the New York Times (free registration) looks at plans to show the film in 3-D. 

Meanwhile, Comingsoon.net has an interview with actress Teri Hatcher, who plays two roles in the film.  Hatcher said, "I've always wanted to be in an animated movie and I never dreamed I'd get to be in this level of artistry. I've always been a huge fan of Henry's [Selick] and Neil Gaiman. On top of it all, I got to play these three different levels of people. Interestingly enough when you go in to do your first animated movie I think you imagine you're going to pull out every accent you ever worked on as a child and every silly cartoon voice you ever imagined making up and Henry had such this imaginative visual thing happening in his mind of how the look of the movie was going to be so he really wanted the voices behind it to be seemingly real, even to the point where you didn't go, 'Oh I hear Dakota Fanning. Oh I hear Teri Hatcher.'  It ended up in a way similar what you would do with any acting job that you would try to find the sort of motivation, the needs, the desires, the situation of who these three people were and what they wanted and what they needed. Then you sort of distill it all down into your voice."

Finally, Ain't It Cool News has an interview with director Henry Selick.  

Release date: February 6, 2009.  

HEROES

Don't call it a comeback -- CBR News has a fresh installment of our "Behind the Eclipse" series with writers/producers Aron Coliete and Joe Pokaski.  

Next episode: February 9, 2009, "Trust and Blood."

SPIDER-MAN 4

According to the Oakland Press, director Sam Raimi may be coming back to his home state of Michigan to shoot scenes for the next web-spinning installment.  "I'll be looking at Michigan for our second-unit photography on the new 'Spider-Man' film," Raimi said.  "It was cheaper to shoot in Ohio because the streets we were shooting on had storefronts that looked a little bit more like New York than Detroit did.  But if the incentives Michigan has now had been in place, we would have had the money to adapt a set in Detroit."

Starring Tobey Maguire, no release date announced.

PUSH

Superhero Hype has a new video interview with the cast of the film.  

Starring Chris Evans, release date: February 6, 2009.

THOR

Oh, you're not on Twitter? So you missed this exchange between comics notabled Joe Quesada and Brian Michael Bendis ...

Bendis: "hey are we allowed to talk about what we did today or is it hush hush?"

Quesada: "We can't go into detail but I think we can say that we met with Branagh about Thor ;-)"

Bendis: "so we can't go into detail but maybe we can say that we met with Branagh about Thor ;-)"

Quesada: "Yes @BRIANMBENDIS we can hint at hour super secret Thor meeting with Branagh, but don't give it away, just hint"

So now you know.

DAVID USLAN

The son of the storied producer of "Batman" talked to CBR News about what it takes to bring comics to film and his new venture, COG 1 Entertainment.
