    Box Office: 'Pain & Gain' Takes Top Spot; 'Iron Man 3' Earns $195 Million Overseas, On Track For $1 Billion

    Review: '42' Admirably & Carefully Weaves Together The History Of Baseball & Civil Rights

    Destiny swings a big stick in Brian Helgeland's "42."

    The past two years has seen two high-profile baseball-themed movies: one good, 2011’s “Moneyball,” and the other less-than-good, last year’s Clint Eastwood-starring “Trouble With The Curve.” While the latter film was a disappointment for the studio, Warner Brothers is hoping they’ll hit a homerun (s...
