A monument to the Beatles will be erected in Mongolia.

In support of the initiative, Prime Minister S.Bayar attended Friday a news conference called on this matter. Saying that the Beatles launched a globalization process, Mr. Premier told that he has been listening the Beatles' sings for over 40 years.

Standing close to a guitar sculptures of four "Beatles" will be made of bronze. Songs of Beatles and of Mongolian groups and singers will sound all day through. Over MNT 100 million is required for this project.

Frank Miller's "Spirit" flick - big bunch of pics

Forty-some "green screen" images from Frank Miller's film based on Will Eisner's "The Spirit," starring Gabriel Macht, Samuel L. Jackson, Paz Vega, Scarlett Johanson, Eva Mendes and others have been posted here. The greens will be CGIed in afterwards, as was done with Miller's "Sin City" film.

As mentioned yesterday, I don't have great hopes for the film capturing the style and feel of Eisner's strip, given how much more the promo poster, etc., look way more like Miller's world than Eisner's, but some of these images do look Eisneresque (the goofy pic of the Spirit feeding those cats, the Spirit atop the chimney). If Miller can incorporate some humor into his grim'n'gritty noir, maybe the film will do an ok job. But, still...

We'll see.

P.S. The Spirit's suit needs to be blue. Going black was NOT a good move.
