I just got done reading a description of Ben Stiller's next movie, Tropic Thunder. Apparently, he plays an action star who gets dropped off in Vietnam jungle with Jack Black and Robert Downey, Jr. thinking that they're filming a movie. Jack Black is playing an Eddie Murphy type actor, as in one who typically plays multiple roles in a single movie, and Robert Downey, Jr. is playing a black guy, perhaps one from the Keith David mold. The trailer is set to drop March 17, according to EW. My favorite line from the article:
Stiller plays an action hero who has just adopted a baby from Asia but worries that ''all the good ones are gone.''
Also, Comingsoon.net has pics up of the Watchmen heroes in costume, and it looks pretty convincing. This movie is such a big deal I can't even describe it. It bears repeating: it's the only comic on Time's top 100 novels list. It's there next to staples of literature. Of Mice and Men isn't on the list and Watchmen is.
