    3-D Resistance, Teen Stars Disappoint at Box Office, Justin Bieber Biopic, New Idol Judges

    - The ultimate Hollywood truism these days: if you can't make it good, make it 3-D. The NYT considers the pull for and push against 3-D domination. At Comic-Con, several directors played to anti-3-D sentiment in the cavernous Hall H. J. J. Abrams believes that “when you put the glasses on, everything gets dim."

    - While the b.o. fate of the movie based on the global bestseller Eat Pray Love won't be determined until the peripatetic romance opens August 13, in-demand writer-director Ryan Murphy (also Glee's co-creator/exec-producer) has won not only Sony's vote of confidence, but star Julia Roberts is also happy to pair up with him again.

    -Even with Peter Jackson prepared to take over the directing helm, continued delays on The Hobbit put the cast's availability at risk. Even the film's Gandalf, Ian McKellen, is under no contract to appear in The Hobbit, the veteran actor revealed in an interview with New Zealand's Good Morning.
