Fox’s Rise Of the Silver Surfer “came on well” via-a-vis tracking today. (Did you catch the ad inserted into NBC’s Heroes big finale?) Of course, it’s hard to tell what with all these mega-blockbusters surrounding it, but box office gurus are telling me that the pic looks ripe even this early for a “fantastic” June 15th opening. Meanwhile, here’s a piece of trivia: director Tony Scott and producer Jerry Bruckheimer hired Quentin Tarantino to script a scene about the Silver Surfer for Crimson Tide. In fact there’ve been a lot of references to the enigmatic globe-gliding character in the movies. Must be because he has a Christ-like connotation.
