Just curious, because I don't talk about films very often.

(1) Did anyone reading this see 28 Days Later?

(2) Did you like it?

(3) Are you going to see the sequel?

(4) Did anyone reading this see Intacto?

(5) Did you like it?

Now, I like films and see a lot of them, but I don't pay a great deal of attention to industry buzz, and I don't typically read any film magazines, even the serious ones. So it was a pleasant surprise to read a newspaper article the other day and learn that the man who had directed the Spanish thriller Intacto was the director of 28 Weeks Later. Anyway, it just gives me an extra reason to hope 28 Weeks Later does well and that it won't be swamped by the competition, opening as it does a week after the third Spiderman film, and two weeks before the third appearance of Captain Jack Sparrow.

Do you remember which ending you saw? <1>28 Days Later</i> as it was first released had a somewhat hopeful ending, but by the time I saw the film word of an alternate, bleaker ending had gotten out, and that ending was added to later prints of the film. So it played with the standard ending and the end credits ran, and then there was something like a "But what if..." and then the alternate ending ran.

*sigh* Spiderman 3 got bad reviews, some of them pre-release, but it still opened huge. That'll mean fewer theatres for 28 Weeks Later.
