    Back Together At Last: Nicolas Cage & Mickey Rourke To Have A Crazy-Off In 'Marble City'

    Guys and girls, we have some news: Cinema is over. Not that it's being replaced or anything, but if you're a professional screenwriter or director, it might be time to start looking for work in another industry. Because the movies have entered their endgame: some time in 2013, the artform will reach the aim it was created for, and present-day Nicolas Cage and present-day Mickey Rourke will share a screen together. And after that, there will be no point in making any new movies.

The actor looked to have chucked his chance at A-list stardom away after films like "Alexander" tanked, but the actor has slowly been working his way back up again, aided by a well-received pair of villains last summer in "Horrible Bosses" and "Fright Night."

    'Blade Runner' Follow-Up Officially A Sequel, Original Writer Hampton Fancher Developing Story With Ridley Scott

    We pretty much covered this in the last couple of days, but it's possible we buried the lead a little, plus a press release is out, so it's now official: with "Prometheus" nearly upon us, Ridley Scott has started to seriously work towards his other sci-fi follow up, the continuation of "Blade Runner" that was originally announced last summer. A couple of details have been confirmed via a press release from Alcon Entertainment, among them that Scott is going right back to the well when it comes to nailing down the story for his new replicant-themed picture.

    Review: 'Bill W.' Draws You Into The Trials And The Triumphs Of Alcoholics Anonymous

    “Bill W.” tells the story of the largely unsung hero William G. Wilson, the co-founder of Alcoholics Anonymous, an organization that has saved the lives of thousands and thousands of people. The documentary, led by directing and producing team Kevin Hanlon and Dan Carracino, is an effort to tell a relatively unknown story about a man who has been a guiding light for many other relative unknowns.

Even as his organization grew to include tens of thousands of members, Wilson’s identity was not revealed to the public until his death in 1971: many recovering alcoholics knew their savior only as “Bill.”
