the dark is rising again

Months ago, I expressed my concerns over the upcoming film adaptation of The Dark is Rising. My beef was specifically with Ian McShane's un-Merriman like appearance (the character in the books is an older, lanky, white-haired magician of sorts, a contemporary version of Merlin). Well, my fears have been realized. The first set photos have been released, and Ian McShane looks like...Ian McShane. On the up side, Christopher Eccleston seems a suitable Rider, and the last image of what I presume is the Old Ones' temple, is spot on, atmospherically. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
