Footage from Mel Gibson's Passion

Some clips from the controversial upcoming here in RealVideo and Windows Media formats. It doesn't open until next March or April, but already it has incited a heated debate (I wanted to say "a passionate debate" but decided to avoid the potentially insensitive pun).
After having read an early draft script, some claim the movie is anti-Semitic and have sent Gibson a list of requested changes. Gibson has screened the movie for some of his friends but has not and will not allow the protesters to see the movie until it opens wide and they cough up $9 a piece.
There are some topics on which, if you have an artistic vision, no matter what it is, you will turn yourself into a human lightning rod. I'm speaking, of course, of Gigli.
Another random movie note--a news clip from IMDB:
"Final 'Lord of the Rings' Film Sets Record for Advance Sales in Japan
It doesn't open in Japan until the spring of next year, but Japanese distributor Nippon Herald Films said Tuesday that it sold a record 13,645 advanced tickets to The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King on Saturday. The sale broke the previous record for one-day advance sales in Japan set by Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets with 11,220 tickets sold."
Some people already have tickets to LOTR: ROTK? Grrrrr.
