Welcome to The Morning Read.
Isn't it supposed to get quiet over a holiday weekend? If that's true, then why do I have a giant overstuffed Morning Read for you today, and why is everyone else online working so damn hard right now? I have turkey sandwiches to eat, people! They're not going to eat themselves! In the spirit of the season, some of these are brand new links, and some are leftovers I'm just clearing out. Seems appropriate, eh?
I'm hearing some pretty amazing buzz from this week's Guild screening of "Sherlock Holmes," and I have a feeling all the naysayers are going to find themselves part of a very small club when audiences get a look at the film next month. I'm dying to take a look myself, and I hope it happens sooner rather than later. To be fair, our own Greg Ellwood tells me that the HFPA, the voting body behind the Golden Globes, hated the film, but I'd trust my sources and their taste over anything the HFPA thinks any day of the week. It sounds to me like "Sherlock" might just turn out to be the franchise-started Warner Bros. is praying for.
It's always interesting when a film goes from hypothetical to actual, and I guess I missed that moment for the third "Narnia" film. Last I heard, the film was still a "maybe," but Coming Soon just debuted a number of stills from the film, including looks at Lucy Pensevie, Prince Caspian and Edmund reunited, and the helm of the ship. One image is included here at the top of the story, and you can find the rest of them at Coming Soon.
