Hollywoodland

Heading for UK cinemas 24 November is Hollywoodland, which centres on the mysterious death of George Reeve, the man who played Superman. The trailer looks slick (but as others have pointed out, does it give too much away?)

Ben Affleck, who has a couple of bad years in the entertainment press, won an award for Best Actor for his role as George Reeves in the film at this year’s Venice Film Festival. Good news for a man known for his love of SF and comics (he’s huge Star Trek fan, so maybe now his name will start getting thrown into the rumour ring when it comes to the new movie…)
