    Wentworth Miller To Star In Black List Dramedy 'Analog'

    While "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller hasn't quite established an acting career to go along with his fancypants name, he's becoming someone to watch on the screenwriting front. Under his nom de plume Ted Foulke, he penned "Stoker" which has quickly attracted Park Chan-Wook ("Oldboy") to direct and a helluva cast with Colin Firth, Nicole Kidman and Mia Wasikowska all attached to star. Not too shabby.

    While much of the populace still harbors residual resentment and ill-will towards musician/filmmaker Fred Durst for his rap-rock tresspasses and early aughts omnipresence, the Limp Bizkit frontman has undeniably contributed to modern cinema in a film that is already being considered a contemporary classic

    First Poster For Lone Scherfig's Rom-Com 'One Day' Starring Anne Hathaway & Jim Sturgess

    Valentine's Day has come and gone for another year, and workplaces are buzzing with what everyone got up to last night. Rom-com marathons on your own at home, candlelit champagne dinners out with a loved one, or something in between -- in this writer's case, an evening spent in a dingy hotel room with three Romanian acrobats, some strobe lighting, a tank of oxygen, a live goat, a series of dressing gown cords, and Lou Reed's "Berlin" on repeat. What? Love comes in many different forms.

    It's odd for us to know that a new Pixar film is only a few months away, and yet not feel any particular excitement about it, but that's the situation we find ourselves in ahead of the release of "Cars 2" The original wasn't terrible, exactly, (it still stands head and shoulders above most CGI fare from other studios), but considering the high standards that Pixar have set themselves, it was firmly at the bottom of the pack, and appears to have been greenlit principally because of the giant merchandising revenue that the property brings in to the Disney coffers (a mammoth $2 billion a year, totalling $8 billion to date, more than the total box-office revenue from Pixar's films combined).
