    Time To Put Away Childish Things: Is 2011 The Year Grown-Ups Started Buying Movie Tickets Again?

    For some time now, the received wisdom has been that the kind of mid-budget, star-driven serious films that once dominated Hollywood were on their way out. Dan Jinks, the producer of "Milk," told Mark Harris at GQ a couple of months back that, "Everyone has cut back on not just 'Oscar-worthy' movies, but on dramas, period. Caution has made them pull away. It's infected the entire business." Indeed, the new regime at Disney announced their intention back in 2010 to focus entirely on tentpoles, even canceling a proposed sequel to the $200 million-grossing hit "The Proposal," a film that cost a relatively meager $40 million, because it didn't fi...

    'The Social Network' & 'Exit Through the Gift Shop' Win Big At ACE Eddie Awards

    Last night we tweeted some teasers from our gig on the ACE Eddie Awards Red Carpet, but there were a few things we left out. Held at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, the night was a fancy affair for sure, but also a celebration of an art, that in so many ways, is invisible. As Eddie winner for "Temple Grandin" Leo Trombetta said it, "[our job] is to make sure our work doesn't draw attention to itself," but last night was an event meant to shine a light on the men and women who sit in small dark rooms for long long hours shaping the films that we know and love. Many of the nominees are also up for the Oscars next week, and Eddie winners hav...

    David Fincher Wants Rooney Mara Topless On 'Dragon Tattoo' Poster & 9 Other Revelations

    Even if some of the awards heat has fallen off "The Social Network," with "The King's Speech" taking over the front-runner spot, David Fincher's got to be feeling pretty good about himself of late. After a few years that saw him make the brilliant "Zodiac," which was mostly ignored by audiences, and finally finish "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," released to lukewarm reviews even from his biggest fans, 2010 saw Fincher put out a film that resonated with both critics and audiences for the first time since "Seven." What's more, he's the new favorite at Sony, who has given him a hefty budget to kick off what they hope will be a huge franch...
