i had all but given up on the bond franchise but i finally got around to casino royale and i was pleasantly surprised. the excess was trimmed, the camp took a vacation, and the bond humanized. hope they can maintain the proper mixture next time around which imdb lists as nov 08.

Susan Sarandon on the technology behind the Wachowski brother's next film - Speed Racer:

They're using some high def thing that comes with guards and it's beyond anything I've everů. I saw 10 minutes before I left, they did a special thing for me cause they're just wrapping and having a party tonight, they were still working after I left. They're doing something where they're layering film so that the front and the back are in focus like a cartoon and they're also doing two dimensional and three dimensional stuff and mixing and everything is very, very saturated with some new kind of film, so they actually have to treat the actors in some way so we can hold our own with the background. So it's every color that wasn't in The Matrix is seriously in this film.
