The Battle of Teutoburg Forest: A Movie?

Some time ago I wrote about the battle of Teutoburg Forest, a disastrous loss of several Roman legions in Germania in A.D. 9.

Now a Dutch filmmaker is considering making a movie based on the battle. It’s not a done deal yet, but the concept trailer looks pretty good. I’ll have to keep an eye on this one. (You can read more about the project here — but only if you can read Dutch).


New Disaster Flick

From Roland Emmerich (director of “Independence Day” and “Day After Tomorrow”) comes another epic disaster flick: “2012”. From the trailer it looks like this will be a great movie — as long as you don’t take the science too seriously, says Phil Plait.
