    A Tale of Two "Blue Valentine" Posters

    13 Tweets From The "Secret" World Premiere of David O. Russell's "The Fighter"

    So last night AFI FEST scored with their annual "secret screening," which turned out to be the world premiere of David O. Russell's "The Fighter." Theres not much word just yet, but the film is screening again today for press so we can expect that to change soon. In the meantime, though, we do have a wide variety of tweets that suggest "The Fighter" is heading for a mixed-to-positive response that might not make it a best picture frontrunner. Christian Bale, on the other hand, looks like he might get that status officially in the supporting actor category any day now.

    'Devil Wears Prada' Director David Frankel To Helm Paul Potts Biopic 'One Chance'

    Written By 'The Bucket List' Scribe Justin ZackhamRemember Paul Potts? No? Basically, he was the male equivalent of Susan Boyle who a few years ago blew the roof off "Britain's Got Talent" with his audition where he showed he had the vocal chops to be an opera singer. Now, that thrilling tale will become a movie.

    AFI Fest Review: The Fighter is a Contender

    The buzz on the street about David O. Russell's The Fighter--the boxing movie is a rousing crowd-pleaser, stolen by Christian Bale--was correct. "I had to do a lot of cheating, stealing and lying to get the movie made," said star and producer Mark Wahlberg at the start of the "secret" screening at AFI Fest (revealed via Paramount press release Tuesday morning). "I'm happy it got to the big screen. It took me such a long time to get the movie made that if you don't like the movie, I'll do two hours of hard labor. I did it to get the movie made and I will do it for anyone who doesn't like it."

    Visual effects wonks (like me) who are lucky enough to live in L.A. may want to show up on Thursday, November 18 for the Academy's Science and Technology Council program “Visualize This: Previs in the Making of Star Trek."

    film review: Morning Glory

    What a pleasure it is to watch a well-cast, well-written comedy for grownups. Morning Glory has a smart premise and just the right people to carry it out: Rachel McAdams, as an overeager TV producer who locks horns with her new host, a once-respected news anchor played by Harrison Ford, as well as his co-host, a prima donna played by Diane Keaton. The parts might have been written with these actors in mind; that’s how perfectly they inhabit them and play off one another. McAdams is delightful in an all-too-rare comedy role, and works well opposite the men she encounters: her boss, Jeff Goldblum, her colleague and possible lover, Patrick Wilson, and best of all, her recalcitrant star, Harrison Ford. What a pleasure to see him in—
