    Also New In Theaters This Weekend - Meagan Good's "Video Girl"

    I missed this in my previous "To See This Weekend" post earlier today... last we checked, it was scheduled to open in a limited release beginning April 29th. But I don't think that ever happened. I say that because I just got info stating that it's actually in theaters TODAY, May 20th, still in a limited release.

    Steven Spielberg's 'Terra Nova,' Liz Meriwether's Dreadful Looking 'New Girl,' 'Napoleon Dynamite' Cartoon' & Jonah Hill's 'Allen Gregory' Also Get Previewed'Wait a minute. A post with trailers for televisions shows? Believe it, friendo. The small screen, not so long ago considered an ancient artifact in the face of big screen spectacles and online entertainment, has rebounded in a huge way as a place where creativity is allowed to shine. HBO and AMC have been clearing the path and now it looks like old standbys like Fox and CBS are rolling the dice on some ambitious fare, so let's get to it shall we?

    The Other Palme d'Or: 6 Marvelous Cannes-Winning Shorts from Years Past

    On Sunday, the Cannes Film Festival Jury, headed by Robert De Niro, will be announcing this year’s Palme d’Or. And while that’s certainly exciting, it's easy to overlook its twin award, the Palme d’Or for short film. The honor has existed for almost as long as the festival itself and over the years has jump-started quite a few careers, from Norman McLaren and Albert Lamorisse to Jane Campion and Nuri Bilge Ceylan. One can even trace the origins of the Romanian New Wave to 2004 and the victory of Cătălin Mitulescu’s “Trafic,” a year before his compatriots’ features started raising eyes on the Croisette. So in honor of the award (and because none of this year’s contenders are yet available on the web), here’s a look back at some of the finest work ever to take home a Palme d’Or du court métrage.

    Sequel To "The Long Kiss Goodnight" In The Works... Samuel Jackson 100% Confirmed

    I don't think I've seen this film in ages... I'd have to return to it to remind myself of it. It was pretty much the Geena Davis show, with Samuel L. Jackson assuming sidekick duties, if I recall correctly. But I think I mostly enjoyed it. Released in 1996, it was kind of like Bourne before Bourne - a trained killing machine/human suffering from memory loss, starts to regain pieces of her past, when that past catches up to her, and, in turn, finally realizes who/what she really is.

    Ethan Hawke Says His 'Total Recall' Cameo Will Consist Of A 5 Page Monologue

    Geez. It's one thing to show up in a cameo role in a film, say a few lines, wink at the audience and then leave. It's another to show up and give a speech lengthy enough to be a State Of The Union.

    Weekend Preview: Pirates Will Push Back Thor and Bridesmaids, but Midnight in Paris Is Must-See
