The Weekly Ketchup: "300" Gets Positive Reaction, "Jaws" Gets Questionably Fifth Entry, "Iron Man" Has Grand Aspirations, And More!

by | February 16, 2007 | Comments

In This Week’s Ketchup, an exuberant reviewer praises an early screening of "300," "Jaws" may have a direct-to-video fifth entry, and "Iron Man" already seems to merit a trilogy.

Also, the "Pirates of the Caribbean" writer is fixing to pen a fourth, and Daniel Radcliffe seems to favor a grim fate for "Harry Potter." Read on.

This Week’s Most Popular News:

Early (and Exuberant) Reaction to "300"
One of AICN’s regular "scoopers" was able to squeeze his way into an early screening of Zack Snyder’s "300" — and it seems like the high-octane, mega-testosteroned action epic blew the kid’s mind in a big way.

This Can’t Be the Plot Synopsis for "Jaws 5," Can It?

I’ll advise you to take this whole story with a few grains of salt, but let’s just dive right in: There just might be a direct-to-video "Jaws" sequel on the way — and if it’s boasting the same plot divulged over at, then we may be in for a flick on par with "Jaws: The Revenge."

"Iron Man" Will be a Trilogy
Not all that surprising, really, but cool nonetheless: Jon Favreau’s upcoming "Iron Man" movie is intended to be the first flick in a series of three. Sounds good to me!

"Pirates of the Caribbean" Writer to "Try" to Pen a 3rd Sequel

With "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End" only a few short months away, fans have started speculating about the possibility of a fourth "Pirates" adventure. Well, here’s what screenwriter Terry Rossio has to say about that.

Does Daniel Radcliffe Have a Death Wish for "Harry Potter"?

Do anything long enough and it’ll probably get a little tiresome — even if that something is playing the world’s most popular underage wizard.

Apparently, somebody finds scenes like this exciting.
