    Joe Carnahan Says The 'The Grey' Is Almost Locked, Warns "Haters Prepare. Your Hopes Will Be Dashed"

    There's no doubt that we've been pretty hard on Joe Carnahan.

On the surface, Love Crimes of Kabul (premiering on HBO tonight), about women in Afghan prisons for the “crimes” of pre-marital sex...

    Weekend Box Office: ‘Transformers 3’ Dominates Again, Now Highest Grossing Domestic Film Of 2011

    'Horrible Bosses' & 'Zookeeper' Start Out StrongTwo weeks ago, Paramount Pictures announced that it had crossed the $1 billion mark at the domestic box office, making it the first studio to accomplish the milestone this year. This was the Wednesday that "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" was released, so suffice to say Paramount are going to have a hell of a year. To little surprise, Michael Bay's thunderous monstrosity of a picture dominated the box-office once more this weekend, adding a not-too-shabby $47 million dollar haul to its total despite a 51.9% drop-off.
