    I haven’t seen FF: Rise of the Silver Surfer yet, but while in Utah this last weekend I did see a theater marquis advertising the new FF movie. The theatre was also showing that new penguin movie that is out this summer. The sighn read Fantastic Four then right below it the words ‘Surfs Up’. Fantastic Four: Surf’s Up has a nice ring to it. Unfortunately a truck drove by right as I was snapping a picture of the sign. That was on the way out of town. . .
