    Summer Movie Box Office Predictions

    So I figured with "Iron Man 2" en route to the summer's first big fat weekend (it's likely to gross around $130 million - one of the five best openings of all time), I'd geek out and take a stab at predicting what will go down financially from here on. The obvious guess is that four sequels - "Toy Story 3," "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," "Iron Man 2" and "Shrek Forever After" - will dominate and each gross $300-$450 million. They could really come in any order (though this weekend suggests "Iron Man" is not a "Dark Knight"-sized wonder), but my bet is "Toy Story 3" - which has high anticipation from a very wide array of demographics, will end...

    Foul Play: Alex Gibney's "Casino Jack and the United States of Money"

    The thesis of the new documentary from Oscar winner Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side) should be clear from its title. Casino Jack and the United States of Money bills itself as a “story of what our democracy has become,” a sobering examination of the corrosive influence of money on American politics. Coming so soon after the controversial January 2010 Supreme Court decision in Citizens United v. the Federal Election Commission, which overturned a key provision of the McCain-Feingold act prohibiting corporate support of political broadcasts, Gibney’s film couldn’t be more timely.
