And this is why I'd be a great TV exec

Focus Features decided to do a film based on the story of Anne Boleyn, and clearly had a casting meeting where someone said "could we simply cast the most attractive quality actors available for these roles without paying attention to any other details?" and everyone heartily agreed. Therefore, just as the fanboys have begged for it, we have movie starring both Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson (as the world's most unlikely pair of sisters), along with Eric Bana as Henry VIII. This is a tack the History Channel has not tried yet, and I don't know why not, as even the vaguest possibility of a Scarlett Johansson sex scene would surely quintuple their numbers, but they keep futzing around with specials on WWII weaponry. Don't say I didn't tell you so, guys. Trailer is available here.
