Test screenings = useless

Having just re-seen the excellent Shallow Grave recently, it's a bit serendipitous that the Onion AV club is interviewing Danny Boyle. Particularly interesting is mention of his next project:

We're doing a film called Sunshine, which is a sci-fi film set in space on the way to the sun. This mission is flying a massive bomb to ignite or re-ignite a section of the sun that is failing. The bomb has been built in space in orbit around the Earth, so there's no weight restrictions on it—it's like the size of Kansas. But the story is really about a mission that went earlier, on the same journey with a similar sized bomb, and it failed, or they've never heard from it again. So there's a mystery involved.

I'd watch that.
