    The last time Universal screened one of their big summer comedies at South by Southwest, it turned out to be "Bridesmaids"—a movie that not only proved to be a massive financial success (and a breakthrough for its cowriter/star Kristin Wiig) but a critical one as well, even earning an Academy Award ...

    James Franco To Direct Movie About The Making Of Tommy Wiseau's Cult Favorite 'The Room'

    Review: 'Now You See Me' Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher & Mark Ruffalo

    David Copperfield once famously quipped to Johnny Carson, that the difference between a trick and an illusion is "about $40,000."
