Speculation as to how X-Men 3 will fair must be good since the movie's stock is up 4.41 points to $116.65 on volume of almost three million shares at midday. I wasn't really interested in tracking this one right now but saw that the bond for Aaron Stanford, who played Pyro on the second installment, was featured at the top of the Star Bond chart and wondered who the heck Aaron Stanford was. His bond is relatively unchanged, moving up only half-a-point today, so it seems his placement there had more to do with the movement of X-3 than any speculation as to his role in the sequel.
Why has the bond for Sean Astin dropped a 1.5 points this morning? It may have something to do with the down trend the Goonies 2 stock is on. The sequel to the 1985 hit is the subject of frequent speculation, especially now that Sean Astin is identifiable after the success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy but, as ever, there's nothing that's been announced. Still, with no other high-profile movies on his plate it seems odd Astin's price would be tied that directly to the future of this one movie.
