The Weekly Ketchup: "Dark Knight" Update, New "Transformers" Trailer, New Director For "Punisher 2," And More!

Freaky New "Dark Knight" Update
Remember when we whined about the "Dark Knight" website being only one logo-filled page? Well, there's been a few updates.

Lotsa Crazy New Footage in the Latest "Transformers" Trailer!

We're already well aware that actor Thomas Jane has walked away from the "Punisher" sequel, but now comes word that a new director might be attached.

Apparently Paramount and producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura commissioned a "G.I. Joe" script from "Swordfish" screenwriter Skip Woods -- and someone out there is really furious about it.

A few new "Indiana Jones 4" tidbits are hitting the 'net lately, and most of 'em are pretty juicy indeed.

Oh that's the first time I heard about Cage dropping out. That's good. Now they can cast someone that's at least mildly intimidating.

Odd innit? They may just do some ordinary random family story about anything and label it The Sims TM. It really makes very little sense to do this, unless it's done as a surreal sort of thing featuring people in the game itself as live actors, with some sadistic gamer being their god. Either way it's dumb.

Some of the people supposedly tapped to work on it have previously worked on things like Norbit, When A Stranger Calls, Scary Movie 3, and Eragon - all stinkers.

Whatever that sucks that Cage dropped out, I was curious to see his take on Capone.
