Movie news round-up: Raccoons, The Rock and LaBeouf in the buff
This week's movie news round-up was written during a bout of punishing heat and humidity, so don't blame me if it's even crappier than usual. Tsk, it's new excuses every week with me, isn't it?

Remember when everyone was talking about Batman and James Bond? That was cool. Now it's Usain Bolt this and Mo Farah that and Andy fucking Murray everywhere. Subsequently, nothing of interest has happened in the last seven days. I MISS YOU, FILMS.

I've just torn myself away from the Olympic mixed-couples table tennis semi-final to bring you this important round-up of the week's movie news. That Dutch couple have quite the backhand return!

I'm off to go and eat myself to death at a carvery, but in my will, I'm leaving you, the fine readers of this site, my final movie news round-up. Please play Katy Perry's 'Firework' at my funeral.

Movie news round-up: Hyper-enthused Comic-Con edition
This week saw the nerdgates open at Comic-Con, which is great for all the people who waited in a queue for 48 hours, but not so great for you unless you like reading descriptions of things that happened. Or, in our case, descriptions of descriptions of things that happened.

Ali is away this weekend so it's been left up to me to collate the week's movie news. Luckily, there hasn't been much going on. At least not much that I can see. StumbleUpon is a legitimate source for movie news, right?

Movie news round-up: The Tom Cruise pity edition
This is the worst week in the history of movie news. Even worse than that week around Christmas where nothing happened and I just posted that Russian trailer for The Avengers that had three new seconds of footage in it. I thought I'd devote the round-up to the newly-single sofa-jumper and his multitude of new projects. At least he's keeping busy.

Movie news round-up: Prometheus, Turtles and banging Lohan
The usual round-up of movie news tidbits, dispatched icily, without compassion. I'm like Bukowski, if Bukowski liked films and sweets and blogging and wasn't actually all that good at writing.
