I've not been able to find any information about Ne Te Retourne Pas (Don't Look Back) getting a release (DVD, I mean, since it apparently didn't get much else after Cannes). Does anyone have inside info on this?

I have to say, even as someone who found Iron Man just passable and a bit too predictable, Iron Man 2 looks like it'll kick some ass and take some names. I'm actually kind of excited for it.

I hope they do a faithful adaptation of the book someday. It's a real harsh critique and an insightful look into America's nonmilitary involvement in Iraq, and Matt Damon running around yelling to a 70s cellphone carrying Greg Kinnear is about as far as you can get from the source material.
Might as well stick a talking fox in there at this point. I wish Greengrass would stop taking the names of books his movies have no intention of following.

Debatable. At any rate, if one were to stick the title The Da Vinci Code on Grumpy Old Men, you can see how that would not raise the esteem of said director.
