Thompson on Hollywood

Geoff Boucher's The Hero Complex blog at the LATimes is mounting its own Film Festival: tickets go on sale Monday at 10 am.

He's got Leonard Nimoy, who has just announced his retirement from acting and Star Trek events; Christopher Nolan will be bringing footage from Inception. On Sunday, Ridley Scott talks Blade Runner and Alien (and his Alien prequel plans) for a rare onstage interview.
