New Australia Featurettes

Baz Luhrmann's epic romance Australia has had a suitably epic production – it's been in development since 2005 and won't be seen until November – but now promotion is gearing up for a film that is looking more amazing the more we see of it.

Baz Luhrmann has just begun a series of video podcasts for Apple, called the Set To Screen Series. You can download the first two here. The first is a primer for the film's story, but the second concerns the role of the on-set photographer and it contains some absolutely stunning imagery. If the film measures up to the stills work then this is going to be the kind of movie you want to chop up and stick on your wall.

More of these podcasts will be released every few weeks up to the release of the film. They look like they'll be worth keeping up with.

Stan Lee Kicks Off New Super Franchise

When not playing walk on parts in superhero films – which really takes up a very large amount of his time – Stan Lee also does some work on comic book characters. The man who co-created Spider-Man and Incredible Hulk has a new superhero franchise up his sleeve. He's planning something called Legion of 5 and he wants it to take over your life.

Details of the project are being kept secret (but we'll speculate that it has something to do with a group of five people with special powers, like The Osmonds). Lee, along with Brighton Partners and Rainmaker Entertainment, is planning a series of computer-animated movies, plus video games, mobile content and online gubbins. Injectable Legion of 5 is also in the works. Maybe.

Shia LaBeouf Signs For Dark Fields

Shia LaBeouf has signed up to star in the distinctly strange sounding Dark Fields, based on the book by Alan Glynn.

The film, written by Leslie Dixon (Hairspray) and to be directed by Neil Burger (The Illusionist), is described by Variety as a 'techno thriller' and will put LaBeouf in the role of a young man who finds a pill that makes him extraordinarily smart and leads to a series of unusual events. We think it's some kind of veiled promotion for cod liver oil.

Dark Knight Viral Mini-Update

There was a little more action in the Dark Knight viral campaign yesterday. At 3pm EDT (8pm in the UK) on Sunday, the website streamed a 'live press conference' with Harvey Dent, which was hijacked when Gotham Police Sergeant Francis Notaro, a vocal opponent of Dent in the viral mythos, took a woman hostage. Dent, being a square-jawed hero, then negotiated to trade places with the hostage. It was at this point that the audio (there was no video, don't panic) on the site cut out. You can hear the audio here.

We had been hoping, after receiving email reminders to listen to the press conference, that a new trailer might follow. But it seems we're going to have to wait a little longer.

International Speed Racer Trailer Online

The official Speed Racer site has a new international trailer for the movie, which you can see here. This trailer's quite lengthy (about 2 minutes long) and it's the best thing we've seen on this so far. At the very least, we doubt this is going to be boring. Some of the dialogue is very cheesy, but the action is looking more spectacular the more we see.
