    Who Should Play Sal Mineo in James Franco's Planned Biopic?

    As if James Franco wasn't already giving us enough questions to ponder right now (will he be nominated for Best Actor? does he really not want to be? will he be a good Oscar host? why is he returning to "General Hospital'?), news came from The Hollywood Reporter that he's optioned the rights to the new Sal Mineo biography by Michael Gregg Michaud. Franco has a few indirect connections to the slain actor. He portrayed James Dean in a TV biopic (which surprisingly had nobody playing Mineo), and Dean co-starred with Mineo in both "Rebel Without a Cause" and "Giant." Also, Franco is starring in the next "Planet of the Apes" movie, an origin story...

    'Tron: Legacy,' Or: A Spectacle of Nothingness.

    The legacy of "Tron" signifies a paradox that insults its biggest fans. That's probably unintentional, but this "machine to dazzle and delight us," as Roger Ebert called the original movie in 1982, no longer simply rejoices in the prospects of technological invention. Instead, a franchise built arou...

    Watch: Announcement Trailer For 'Transformers 3' Has Lens Flare, Clanking Noises & Lame Backstory

    So, when is a teaser trailer not a teaser trailer? When it's an ANNOUNCEMENT TRAILER. That's right fools, Michael Bay plays by his rules and he's not gonna call the first trailer for "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" something sissy like a "teaser trailer."

    Review: 'The Tourist' Is Not Worth Getting Out Your Passport For

    From the very first shot of the film, director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck makes it evident that "The Tourist" will attempt to be flashy, frothy entertainment. An impeccably dressed police captain climbs into the back of a van with three more impeccably dressed officers, bringing them a tray of espresso, in some pretty fabulous looking takeout cups (no grimy We Are Happy To Serve You style cups for these guys). It's a minor detail, but the scene is indicative of the film as a whole. More often choosing fabulous locations, set design and attire over realism, charm or originality, "The Tourist" mostly feels like walking through a very expe...
