Sept 21, 2010 release date. Available now for pre-order at Amazon at a discount.

Q. There was a lot of publicity when a helicopter crashed into an active volcano in the Hawaiian islands while filming for the movie "Sliver." The cameraman and crew were saved only after much danger. When I went to see the movie, there were no shots of a volcano in it. What happened? -- Ronnie Barzell (Chicago)
