The new film out today is Chasing Ice, which premiered in fitting style at the Ritzy Brixton in conjunction with The Cooperative – a night which was topped off with the news that the film has been short-listed for the Best Documentary category at the Academy Awards.
It is not the Hobbit, but even so, since then, the makers say that the buzz has grown. A video on The Guardian showing the largest iceberg break-up ever filmed has received over half a million hits since it was posted two days ago. The Telegraph ran a cover story on the film last weekend, and Time Out has awarded the film 4 stars.
No fantasy, I suspect, but a warning of a planet moving to more horror scenes.
