"PASADENA, Calif. — Of all the movie promotions in all the towns in all the world, Keanu Reeves had to walk into this one: a California Institute of Technology forum at which he was asked, “How could an alien being grow so fast without violating standard mass- and energy-conservation laws?”..."

Even if I didn't saw the movie yet I'm pretty sure that the science on it will be a LOT better than the one on the last "Indiana Jones" movie...

The original movie is one of my favorites. I don't care about big productions, only about good plots. And the plot gets better along with quality scientific content. I always hope these films attract people to science.
