    If you weren’t hooked by the first season of Treme, HBO’s series set in New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina, I completely agree. But this exuberant new season may change your mind.

    Video Preview: "The Killing" And Its Prime Suspect.

    Over the past weeks, The Killing has held up its promise as the best mystery series on TV right now. As the suspects pile up in the murder of high-school student Rosie Larsen, a viewers' poll at the AMC site names the prime suspect as her teacher, Bennet Ahmed (photo above). That's the current standing; it could change as you read this, but I doubt he'll be overtaken by less likely candidates. (Det. Sarah Linden's fiance? Really?)

    Check Out Another Image Of Idris Elba In Action As Heimdall In New “Thor”

    May 6th is less than a month away… given all that I’ve seen of this film thus far, and I’ve seen a bit - all the clips and images the studio has released in the last month or so - I’m still just not sold on it. I’m ambivalent… something just seems off to me; but I’ll see it anyway.

    Marvel Wises Up And Reportedly Lets Shane Black Co-Write 'Iron Man 3'

    Superhero movie fans were pretty puzzled a few weeks ago when it was announced that Drew Pearce would be penning the script for "Iron Man 3." Nothing against Pearce (who's seen success with the U.K. superhero comedy series "No Heroics"), but when Marvel Studios appointed Shane Black as director of the upcoming threequel, most people assumed he'd also be writing the script as well.

    Paul Thomas Anderson Testing Out 65mm Cameras For New Film Which Won't Be Shot By Robert Elswit

    When it comes to the next Paul Thomas Anderson film, all news is mysterious news. While we're still not sure exactly which of Anderson's films might be going into production first, it had looked like it might be his Thomas Pynchon adaptation "Inherent Vice" this fall, but recent casting speculation leads us to believe it may be the untitled religious drama sometimes referred to as "The Master," which is now possibly to co-star Joaquin Phoenix alongside Philip Seymour Hoffman. The next little morsel of news comes from reliable fansite Cigarettes & Red Vines. The site received a tip from a reader that indicates that Anderson has been shooting tests with and operating a 65mm camera, which the site also points out, is the same camera used by Stanley Kubrick on "2001: A Space Odyssey." Anderson has always been a big advocate of shooting on film and if this were to happen it would be a cinephile's wet dream.
