Monday musing

So The Dark Knight finally gets bumped off the top of the US box office (by Tropic Thunder) but still makes $16.8 million which is enough to push it pass the original Star Wars to number two spot behind Titanic in all-time North American grossers, having taken a — deep breath now — $471.5 million in just 30 days.

The Q&A I hosted with Dave Gibbons yesterday seemed to go down well, as did the footage of Watchmen which was so good we showed it twice. I. Cannot. Wait. For this movie.

And finally, it appears The Banana Splits are returning. I loved this show as a kid, although I don't imagine the 21st century versions of Bingo, Drooper, Fleegle and Snorky will be quite so "groovy" and "psychedelic" this time around.

Altogether now: One banana, two banana, three banana, four. Four bananas make a bunch and so do many more...
