    Art House Convergence Notable Moments

    The 4th Annual Art House Convergence, initiated 4 years ago by John Cooper's calling together Art House Theater Owners to brainstorm about how to ensure a secure position in the specialty film market continues discussion in a Google Group. This discussion is all the more relevant in the face of AMC and Regal combining with Tom Ortenberg's Open Road distribution for mid budget films, which are probably NOT art house films.

    New Images From 'The Hangover 2'; Justin Bartha Says Doug Isn't Lost This Time Around

    Last month, a teaser trailer for the highly anticipated "The Hangover 2" arrived and announced the return of The Wolfpack, but once again, Justin Bartha's character of Doug was nowhere to be found. But there was a monkey featured very prominently (this writer thinks Doug is the monkey but no one else in The Playlist office will listen).

    Robert Luketic's film career has been a decidedly downward trajectory. He made a big splash helming the better-than-it-deserved-to-be Reese Witherspoon comedy "Legally Blonde" and ever since has made one bad picture after another, culminating in a double whammy of awful Katherine Heigl romcoms, "The...
