What’s the right way to start off your week? How about photos of Sienna Miller as a blood-spattered Baroness, complete with skin tight black patent leather? That do anything for you, holmes?
Speaking of photos, Ain’t It Cool News has a first look at the Minutemen of the 1940s with the original Silk Spectre and Nite Owl alongside Captain Metropolis, Mothman, the Silhouette, the Comedian, Dollar Bill, Hooded Justice and the Mothman.
In other news, the New York Times reports that the Zack Snyder-directed animated side story “Tales of the Black Freighter” will get released on DVD five days after the main movie his theatres. In addition, the studio plans a dozen 22- to 26-minute Webisodes to help make the complex story easier for the uninitiated to digest. Called “The Watchmen Motion Comic,” it will be a panel-by-panel slide show of the graphic novel narrated by an actor. Those together might get a DVD release as well in the future.

According to Shock Till You Drop, the movie will be released September 19th. The studio description is as follows: “After two years stationed at Antarctica’s South Pole research base, lone U.S. Marshal Carrie Stetko (Kate Beckinsale) is as anxious as anyone to be going home. She’s turned in her resignation and is counting the hours and minutes to the last plane out. But three days before departure, a body turns up on the ice and Carrie is immediately thrust into Antarctica’s first murder investigation. As the death toll mounts, the mystery deepens with shifting loyalties, deadly whiteouts, and a relentless killer who will stop at nothing to protect a secret buried for over sixty years. Now with everyone around her packing up and getting out, Carrie must solve the crime before Antarctica is plunged into six months of darkness and she is stranded with the killer on a land where nothing comes in and no one gets out.”

NO R-RATED MARVEL MOVIES
Marvel’s Peter Cuneo is quoted at IESB saying, “We will not be doing an R-rated films in our studio … …today, it would be very hard for us to partner with another studio, unless it was an R-rated film, and then I think that’s pretty self-obvious because we are not interested in making R-rated films [at Marvel Studios].” So your “Punisher” and “Blade” films better be done somewhere else, pal.
