Thompson on Hollywood

I've seen Rob Marshall's Nine and Clint Eastwood's Invictus, but I am not allowed to write about them just yet. And I got my screening invite today for Peter Jackson's The Lovely Bones. They start at the end of the week. I've been reading the Alice Sebold novel, which is as cool as I had heard. So I didn't read Harry Knowles' early review too carefully. I want to make up my own mind. But clearly, he loves the movie.

I got an invite to James Cameron's L.A. Avatar premiere on December 16, but I can't go to the film because I'm showing The Lovely Bones to Sneak Previews--our last night. So I'll pop by the party afterwards. The first LA press screenings are December 10th and 14th.
