Many articles! US release is tomorrow!

The US release is tomorrow! I’m so excited! And I’m overwhelmed with articles coming in, it’s taken me a few hours to go through them all, quite a change from when I launched the site in 2002! I’d also like to announce that we’ve had more hits in this past week than ever before, thanks to everyone dropping by, and I hope it’s not too slow – afterall, I’m just a young american woman who wanted to launch a fansite one day and never expected such a huge movie release! Ok, I’ve blabbered on enough, on to the news!

The big news this week was the UK Premiere, pictures courtesy of BBC.
