    New Trailer & Poster For The Crowd Pleasing 'Made In Dagenham'

    And Don't Forget Your Protractor, SeriouslyWith some Oscar prognosticators making too-early predictions about who is going to win what at the upcoming Oscars, many seem to forget that there are still a couple of months to go and a lot can happen in that time. "The Fighter," "Love And Other Drugs" and "True Grit" have yet to hit theaters and while "Made In Dagenham" has done some festival rounds, it's the kind of crowd pleaser that could easily pick up steam with the Academy, particularly if it becomes a hit with audiences.

    'The Office' Writers Lee Eisenberg & Gene Stupnitsky To Polish 'The Game' Script

    It's Been A Good Week For Neil StraussWell, you gotta hand it to "The Office" writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. Even with their first written feature effort "Year One" tanking hard at the box office with critics and basically with anyone who watched it, the duo are still getting work. They've long been attached to the forever gestating "Ghostbusters 3" and they wrote the upcoming Jake Kasdan-directed comedy "Bad Teacher" starring Jason Segel, Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake. So perhaps "Year One" was just an unfortunate debut flop? Guess we'll have to wait and see.
