    Lady Gaga & Beyonce Music Video Director Sells Sci-Fi Short To WB (& No, Lady Gaga Won't Be In 'Zoolander 2')

    Music video directors making features are pretty hit and miss. For every David Fincher, Spike Jonze, or even Michael Bay, there’s a dozen or so video directors who never quite seem to make the leap (we’re still waiting on the masterful Chris Cunningham to make his feature debut, hey Chri...

    Warner Bros. Converting Classic 'The Wizard Of Oz' To 3D For Yet Another Home Video Release

    If there is one thing that the Warner Bros. home video division is great at, it's constantly releasing the same movies over and over and over again (note to Warner Archive -- you are the exception, you guys rule). It seems every few years, "Casablanca" gets put through another annivers...
