Susan PevensieIt seems clear that whether or not you view Susan Pevensie as a victim or a fool, chances are you don't take a middle-ground approach -- not when she's been alternately called a manifestation of author C.S.

Tilda SwintonSharp-eyed viewers of the new trailer for "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" may notice a familiar face where it doesn't belong – namely, in the damn trailer at all, joked recent Oscar winner Tilda Swinton, whose character, the White Witch, can be seen in clips for the film but not in the film itself.

She thinks.

"I'm dead! I don't know what they're doing there," she laughed. "What are they playing at? Isn't she dead? I [certainly] thought so!" Read More...
