In case you haven’t heard, Walden changed the title of the forthcoming The Dark is Rising movie to The Seeker: The Dark is Rising. I’m not sure what the reason is for the change is, but I hope that it’s not because they want to differentiate it so they can make sequels. I just wish they would remove “The Dark is Rising” from the title all together.
Camille at Book Moot has created a great parody movie poster that captures so well everything about this movie that has fans of the book so upset. It’s really funny; you have to check it out here.
The poster makes a lot more sense if you’ve seen Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. If you haven’t seen it, you can get a flavor of it in this trailer on YouTube. It’s worth watching just to see a young Keano Reeves. (Yes, I know I’m supposed to embed the video here, but I can’t bring myself to do it. You’ll just have to click through to see it.
