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

    Disney Screens 'Finding Nemo' in 3-D for Olympic Swim Team; Hits Theaters September 14, Followed by Blu-Ray

    "While the blogosphere rips apart Pixar for selling out for earmarking a "Finding Nemo" sequel for humbled writer-director Andrew Stanton's return to filmmaking--which is absurd, as Pixar can be counted on to produce better sequels than most, i.e. "Toy Story" 2 and 3--I will be sitting in a theater ...

    CinemaCon in 3-D: Scorsese and Ang Lee and Oscar Contender 'Life of Pi'

    At this point, the folks at Twentieth Century Fox don't need to promote Ridley Scott's "Prometheus."
