While the movie world is short one Spiderman teaser, because of World Trade Center references, all is not lost in terms to seeing any sneak peeks at the (hopefully not postponed) May 2000 film; Ain’t It Cool has some publicity shots, while Spidermanhype.com tells us of an all new trailer hitting theaters December 19th. For everyone looking for a Spiderman Trailer, we've posted a copy of the industry trailer that played at The E3 Expo. Get over to our Hollywood Trailers to watch it!

Terrorists want to end American culture in as many ways as they can- first by indirectly causing us to pull movies out of scheduled release dates, then by threatening to take out Hollywood studios themselves. Last Friday, the FBI warned Hollywood studios of an unspecified terrorist threat, causing evacuations and tram-tour cancellations. According to a Japanese Kyodo News service, lovable dictator Saddam Hussein stated, "When we watched what was happening in America for the first time, we thought it might be another American movie. Later we found out that it was a real movie." Silly Saddam.

Doing their part to help out those hurt in 9-11’s tragic events, The National Association of Theater Owners have decided to make this Tuesday (Sept. 25th) “Victim’s benefit day at the movies,” where every profit made will be split between the American Red Cross and the United Way.
