    Trailer Watch: Bullock Adapts Blind Side

    Hollywood was bound to make a movie of Michael Lewis's non-fiction book The Blind Side. The question is, what kind?

    Avatar Week: Photo Gallery

    I'm obsessed with Avatar. (The movies of James Cameron are moving inexorably up my flickchart.) The question for me is whether Cameron's ambitious mix of 3-D live-action and performance capture --which cost Fox way more than $200 million-- breaks out beyond the Comic-Con faithful.

This trailer for Imagi Studios' animated feature Astro Boy, voiced by Nic Cage and Freddie Highmore, was screened at Comic-Con and left me cold. It doesn't fe...
