It is now safer to assume that nothing is really private any more. The news that our mobile telephone billing information has routinely been sold by T-Mobile employees to the highest bidder is just the latest in the chip, chip, chipping away of our closely guarded personal information. Those cold calls to ask if one was about to finish a mobile phone contract were always suspiciously prescient, and now we know why.

If imitation is a form of flattery, Twilight star Robert Pattinson ought to be pleased by the posters for new teen vampire flick, Cirque du Freak, whose young lead is a dead (or should that be undead?) ringer.

Be afraid. Be very afraid. The undead have risen in unprecedented numbers and are walking among us again.

Until now, Hit & Run was convinced that, generally speaking, cruises were for OAPs, and Twilight was for teenagers. So a Twilight-themed cruise seems somewhat oxymoronic. Yet in August 2010 the good ship Oosterdam will set sail from Seattle for the first ever Twilight "Cruise to Alaska and Convention at Sea". And news that Ashley Greene and Kellan Lutz – two stars of the sensationally successful adolescent vampire film – will be aboard should attract an age group unaccustomed to bridge parties and bingo.
