Welcome to the brand new Film Actually (not Geek Actually as I mistakenly call it in the intro – whoops!) News for February 19th, 2012. This week Kermit & Miss Piggy head to the Oscars, Guillermo Del Toro is directing every film in Hollywood, The Amazing Spider-Man shows off a clip, John Carter not tracking well, Peter Jackson will direct Tintin 2, Michael Bay reboots his own franchise plus much, much more!
What used to be a boring, stuffy film section of the Film Actually podcast has been spun off into it’s own, we hope, more entertaining show. We don’t make the news, we just make fun of it. Film Actually News – Loud, Fast and Under Thirty Minutes… or your money back.
