    Weekend Box Office: 'The Vow' And 'Safe House' Lead Four $20 Million+ Debuts

It’s early, but in a year of box office surprises, consider this weekend the most unlikely. With the final tallies to be a...

    Films Become Fastest-Ever Selling Blu-RaysFandom can be a wonderful thing, but, particularly now in the Twitter-lynch-mob age, it can be easy to rile fans up and get them to turn on those whom they used to love. Witness the outcry after the "Lost" finale -- barely a day goes by without co-creator Damon Lindelof getting shit from someone about it.
