War of the Worlds (and more rich hobbits)

It seems War of the Worlds may have another big-screen incarnation under Steven Speilberg's helm and featuring Tom Cruise. The pair last worked together on Minoirty Report which was far better than I'd expected, so I have high hopes for their adaptation of this H.G. Wells classic.

In other filmic news, Return of the King is now the second highest grossing film of all time in Australia, having knocked Crocodile Dundee (*shudder*) from that position. However, the final installment Lord of the Rings film is still ten million behind Titanic's #1 spot. Of course, given that all three films are in the top five grossing list (FoTR: #5, TTT: #4), and their cumulative budget was less than Titanic's overall costs, I think New Line and Peter Jackson are probably pretty happy!
