Time for a few new quickies.
1. We all know that Snakes on a Plane, which opens tomorrow, has not been screened for critics in advance. And now I suspect that Material Girls, the Hilary-and-Haylie-Duff movie which also opens tomorrow but which I had never heard about until this morning, was also kept away from the critics, since I never heard about any screenings and there are no reviews listed yet at Rotten Tomatoes or MetaCritic. Can’t say I’m complaining about this one, mind.
2. Amazon.com is already taking pre-orders for The Nativity Story, a collection of photos from the upcoming movie, which will also include quotes from the New Living Translation of the Bible. The coffee-table book is being published by Tyndale, the company that gave us the Left Behind franchise. (Hat tip to Queen Spoo.)
