News Briefs: Iron Man 2 game peak, Miyazaki's backup

/Film reports that the Iron Man 2 videogame will veer in greatly in plot from the movie. The game, scripted by Invincible Iron Man comic book writer Matt Fraction, will feature villains that won't appear in the film like the Crimson Dynamo.


On the Iron Man 2 movie front, USAToday has posted a gallery of new images from the upcoming film, including one of Don Cheadle as Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes and another of Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff without her Black Widow gear.


Hollywood heavy hitters are getting behind Japanese animation legend Hayao Miyazaki's new feature Ponyo , about a small boy and his friendship with a goldfish princess who wants to be human. According to Variety, Pixar's John Lasseter and the multi-billion-dollar producing team of Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall are trying to extend Miyazaki's appeal beyond the so-called "art-house" crowd. The team have recruited the Oscar-nominated screenwriter of ET Melissa Mathison to write the English language version script, and have tapped Liam Neeson, Tina Fey, and Matt Damon to lend their vocal talents dubbing the movie into English. Ponyo is slated to open in North America August 14 on more than 800 screens.
