    Trailer Watch: Will Voyage of the Dawn Treader Be the Best Narnia?

    I am not a fan of the Chronicles of Narnia movies. Walden Media's $180 million The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe was a huge global hit ($748 million) while the $225 million Prince Caspian, based on the weakest book in the series, was a relative disappointment that did well enough overseas ($419.5 million worldwide) to warrant a sequel.

    Todd McCarthy is going to Janice Min's new iteration of The Hollywood Reporter as their new lead film reviewer. I am happy for him. He's a great critic, but making the adjustment from 30 years of working with a Variety support system to the independence of a blog was tough for him. I look forward to...
