In its promotion for Ecks vs Sever, MovieFone asks "Which came first, the movie or the game?" After Tomb Raider, Resident Evil and others, Wing Commander is the final question.
The fact that Freddie Prinze Jr. stars in this movie should've clued you in. Has this guy ever been in a movie that wasn't an adaptation? "I Know What You Did Last Summer" was a book. "Scooby-Doo" was a cartoon. His next film? "Happily N'Ever After" - based on the Cindarella fairy tale.
Speaking of Prinze, if you didn't catch it in the magazines, Freddie Prinze Jr. and his fiance Sarah Michelle Gellar of "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" were married a few weeks ago. They recently starred together in "Scooby Doo" and met on the set of "I Know What You Did Last Summer." There's a joke about Matthew Lillard in there somewhere.
As Stardust made us aware last week and CFKoch reminded us today, don't forget to catch Wing Commander on the "Pro 7" network at 8:15 pm tonight. It appears to be the first television showing in Germany.
