    The news/rumors about Lars Von Trier's Antichrist project have been coming and going for about two years now with no real solid evidence that the film would ever enter production (“The Antichrist to Rise?” – December 2007). Usually any news about it would be met with a grain of salt, but this time there's actually something to smile about.

    Who really created the Earth? Some say God, others blame our existance on science. Personally, I think it all falls on the shoulders of the red bastard, Satan. Obviously Dogville director Lars von Trier feels the same way.
