Brawlers Anime Set For The Big Screen
Universal is set to bring the anime and strategy game Bakugan Battle Brawlers to the big screen, with The Karate Kid director Harald Zwart calling the shots, reports Coming Soon. The game was developed by Sega in conjunction with the series (which started airing in 2007) but actually hit the shops before the series had even begun. The game is played on an elaborate “arena”, using spherical, spring-loaded miniature figures – the Bakugan – which pop open when rolled onto special metal Gate cards. In the series, which was initially a flop in Japan but became a hit in the US and Canada, Bakugan are creatures who battle brawlers who possess them.

Sam Worthington Says He’ll Try To Act Better In Clash Of The Titans Sequel
In an interview with Moviefone, Clash Of The Titans star Sam Worthington admitted that the film could have been better. Well, strike us down with a feather, mate: “I just think we can improve on it. I think the first one, we kind of let down some people. And yeah, I totally agree. The only point of doing a sequel is either the audience demands it or you believe you can better the first one. What we’re setting out to do with this one – the writers and the director and myself – is improve. I think I can act f**king better, to be honest… Just take all the notes from people that I have been reading about on the ’net and give them a movie they f**king want. This one I want to kind of try to satisfy a lot more people.”
