So yeah, we're stoked.

A lot has been made of the rivalry between "Mirror Mirror" and "Snow White and the Huntsman" -- exemplified by the chicken-race with release dates.

So are we all sure that "Anvil! The Story of Anvil" wasn't a spoof by now? Back when Sacha Gervasi's documentary about the Canadian heavy metal band hit in 2008 it was kind of hard to believe that this wasn't some kind of weird "This is Spinal Tap" sequel.
