Hey kids, I’m posting LaserLinks a day early this week because I am leaving bright and early Friday morning to attend the New York Comic-Con! I hope to attend the Venture Brothers, Felicia Day, Mark Hamill, and The Amazing Spider-Man panels — so look for reports on those as well as a crap-ton of cool cosplay pics at some point on Saturday. Until then, here’s the week’s news, trailers, and miscellany from the past week:
The first trailer for the theatrical release of the 3D version of The Phantom Menace will be attached to prints of The Three Musketeers.
Superherohype has a breakdown of 72 screenshots from the recently-released trailer.
James Bond 23
Javier Bardem has been confirmed as the villain in the 23rd Bond flick, which might also feature Blofeld and may be titled Skyfall.
Die Hard 5
This sequel has a title, a script, a director and a green-light.
The Dark Knight Rises
Here’s two set videos showing more of the Batwing and an insane chase scene involving Batman on the Batpod and what has to be every police officer in Gotham City.
The Lone Ranger
The film is back on the Disney greenlight schedule with a smaller budget.
The Marvel sequel has been pushed back to a November, 2013 release date.
