    Deeply Uninteresting Poster For 'John Carter' Bows

    With "John Carter Of Mars" recently dropping half of its title to simply "John Carter" and now with the first poster being unveiled, it seems Disney is hell bent on making sure audiences don't know this movie takes place in outer space.

    Ben Stiller May Take A 'Neighborhood Watch' With Akiva Schaffer Offered Director's Chair

    2010 gave us two sides of Ben Stiller. We saw him in the excellent Noah Baumbach film "Greenberg" and watched him slum it in the absolutely dreadful "Little Fockers," Now, halfway through 2011, the actor is deciding what he'll do after he's finished up Brett Ratner's sort-of-promising ensemble comed...

    Guest Post: Step One: Finding the Right Producer by Zoje Stage

    In 2008, I won a Fellowship in Screenwriting from the New York Foundation for the Arts.
