(ed: has anyone yet made a movie about ‘the attack of the killer-iceberg’..?
here’s the scenario: rogue-iceberg noses into cook straight/breaks up in a fierce storm and starts wreaking havoc on wellington – imagine: an iceberg wiping out the beehive..aahh!!..the hipsters scattering up cuba st as a wall of ice bears down on them..(with some of them getting ‘iced’)..patrick gower crushed against a building whilst reporting – after a large shard falls off…(aahh!!..)
winston peters could play a plucky/stoic small-boat owner who sets off on a quixotic-mission against the rogue iceberg – and is last seen waving/shaking his fist – and shouting ‘no! – no!’ – as he is engulfed by the ‘berg.
tom cruise could play a troubled/gung-ho iceberg-expert – for whom – because of an undisclosed iceberg-based trauma in his youth – this ‘is personal’..
..nicole kidman could play the woman from his past (yes!..?..yes!..?..great casting..!..or what..?..)..who was part of that initial trauma for ‘our tom’..
the film commision funding board should be all over that – like blowies on a fresh pat..)
An enormous iceberg almost six times the size of Auckland city has broken off a key floating ice shelf in Antarctica – scientists said yesterday.
The iceberg broke off from the Larsen C ice shelf – scientists at the University of Swansea in Britain said.
The iceberg weighs a trillion tons – they said.
The process – known as calving – happened in the past few days – when a 5800sq km section broke away.
