Lots of great stuff to get to in the Sunday Link Dump, so let’s start clickin’!
First up, it looks like Imagi, the folks responsible for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CGI-Animated film, are starting work on a Battle of the Planets/Gatchaman movie!

It’s not quite clear if they are going to use the American character names (Mark, Jason, Tiny, Keeyop, etc.), or the original “Gatchaman” Japanese ones (Joe, Ken, Ryu, Jun, etc.), but judging by what I’ve seen so far, it looks like it’s going to be the traditional Japanese. Traaaaans-mute!!!
The comic book adaptation of Steven King’s Dark Tower series is one of the highest-selling titles in years, moving over 200,000 copies. Good news for a struggling industry.
The final Spider-Man 3 movie trailer is here!
