    Enjoyed the interview with Wahlberg/O. Russell on Aronofsky backing out. I don’t think there’s any backstage drama, though.

    And for what it’s worth … London film critics awards are out:

    The King’s Speech, Fincher, Firth, Bening, Bale, Sorkin among the winners.

    Looks strangely prophetic, no? We’ll have to see.
