The Random Spiel: May 12th 2007

The first photo is out from the Michael Caine & Jude Law-led remake of “Sleuth”.

– Warner Bros. has thrown up a teaser page for next summer’s The Dark Knight – so far it’s just a pic of the logo with a warped Photoshop effect.

– “Spider-Man 3” took $17.8 million on Friday, likely to head for a $55-60 million second weekend which is along expected lines. “28 Weeks Later” came in second, fared best of the newcomers and should end up with about $10-11 million for the weekend. “Georgia Rule” will likely come in third with a disappointing $5 million. “Delta Farce” and “The Ex” utterly tanked.

-Production on Polanski’s “Pompeii” has been postponed until April 2008, as a result both Orlando Bloom and Scarlett Johansson can no longer participate due to scheduling conflicts. A late 2009 release is planned.

-A new one-sheet art is out for Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

– The latest “Saw 4” casting talk is now up at Bloody Digusting.

– Zach Braff talks about the Terry Gilliam meets the Goonies-esque new project “Andrew Henry’s Meadow” over at VH1.Com.

– An early review of the sci-fi thriller “The Invasion” is out and it ain’t pretty.
