New Publicity for "Hollywood Blockbusters: Unlimited Fun but Limited Science Literacy"

The media world is slow, and will only print something when there's a press release (obviously).

It seems that the preprint that I highlighted more than a month ago on the scientific literacy of Hollywood blockbusters are now making the rounds in the popular media, probably after the University of Central Florida made a press release of it.

Again, they could be right as far as the impact of these movies on science literacy among the general public. However, we should counter that with Phillip Ball's blog in which he did not think it is that big of a deal.
