Welcome to Links UniversityMore news through the cracks and links to other blogs. I didn’t have much time to read other sites this week so that portion is rather weak. I am always open to suggestions…
**Philip K. Dick wrote this letter about Blade Runner before he died, and it was pretty much spot on.
**David Cronenberg mentions The Fly remake and Eastern Promises 2 are both cancelled
**Someone sent a package for Indiana Jones to the University of Chicago
What we know: The package contained an incredibly detailed replica of “University of Chicago Professor” Abner Ravenwood’s journal from Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. It looks only sort of like this one, but almost exactly like this one, so much so that we thought it might have been the one that was for sale on Ebay had we not seen some telling inconsistencies in cover color and “Ex Libris” page (and distinct lack of sword). The book itself is a bit dusty, and the cover is teal fabric with a red velvet spine, with weathered inserts and many postcards/pictures of Marion Ravenwood (and some cool old replica money) included. It’s clear that it is mostly, but not completely handmade, as although the included paper is weathered all of the “handwriting” and calligraphy lacks the telltale pressure marks of actual handwriting.

**Thai actioner Kill Em All is coming to DVD
Captured international assassins are locked up inside a high-tech bunker known as the Killing Chamber. To break out of this concrete hell they must duel each other, fight deadly ninjas and battle against gangs of masked maniacs. And. if they survive this, they will have to confront Snakehead: the lethal, deranged top dog who will stop at nothing to kill ‘em all.
There is always more movie news and never enough time.
