Also Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz are out on Blu-Ray September 22nd. Click on the titles to pre-order yours…although I see Hot Fuzz is just a reminder thing and not an order yet. I’ll keep an eye on it.
And Tuffley reminded me that Windows 7 is available for pre-order on Amazon as well: here.
Speaking of Nick Frost and Simon Pegg, in case you hadn’t seen it, Nick’s on Twitter. We need Simon on there. And their next film, Paul, has a website up where they’re going berserk with the behind the scenes stuff.
The Fighter is not a spin-off of The Wrestler. It stars Mark Wahlberg as a guy who grows up to be the world lightweight champion. Christian Bale plays his helpful half-brother. And Amy Adams is in talks to join and play Wahlberg’s girlfriend. Source.
Law and Order: SVU will not become a starring vehicle for Richard Belzer, it seems. Christopher Meloni and Mariska Hargitay have locked in for two more years. Stephanie March will return to play ADA Alex Cabot for at least ten episodes as well. Source.

TwoMorrows is having a 50% off sale for thirty-one items and they’ve extended that through July 4th. You can find the list here. There’s a lot of good stuff, although the Roy Thomas items are near and dear to my heart, plus a Mark Evanier book. So check it out if you love the comics.
The trailer for Zombieland is up, and it looks encouraging. Woody Harrelson makes for an impressive zombie killer.
