Natalie Portman -- shaved
I'm still curious whether outrageous name-dropping can bump traffic. Didn't work using 'Scott Savol', but then, I guess he's old news. The Sunday New York Times has a cool story on the film V, an adaptation of Alan Moore's graphic novel from the 1980s. The movie is slated for release in November. (You might need to subscribe to their site to read the article -- I'm not sure.) Natalie Portman, head shaved, plays V's apprentice, Evie. The NYT story, by Sarah Lyall, makes a good point: "In today's skittish atmosphere, it takes a certain courage - or foolhardiness- to make a film that might be seen as endorsing terrorism, or at the very least, bomb-fueled anarchy. At a time when many studio films avoid what might offend, the makers of "Vendetta" have stepped out onto a lonely limb." My question: when will someone make a movie out of Moore's other classic, Watchmen? D.
