    Duh? Garrett Hedlund Will Return For 'Tron: Legacy' Sequel

    Um, obviously? Listen, unless its the James Bond franchise (and even that has the actors stay on for multiple pictures), major studio franchises aren't in the habit of switching up the talent involved in lead roles. They've already spent millions of dollars to build and brand the thing aroun...

    Disney Hires Screenwriter David DiGilio To Pen 'Tron: Legacy' Sequel

    "Tron: Legacy" was a bust at the box-office you say? Maybe in December when it opened softly to a $44 million debut weekend, but slow and steady wins the race. Yes, it cost a shit-ton -- $170 million was the figure released, but some estimates had it bloated to up to $320 million. Still the the fil...

    Weekend Box Office: 'Fockers' Shows 'True Grit', Outduels Cowboys (But Not For Long)

    2010 ended with a whimper with most studio execs facing an uncertain 2011, as the year closed with eight consecutive weekends of box office earning lower than its 2009 counterpart despite five major 3D releases goosing prices. Of course, 3D is a gimmick, but it’s foolish to consider that each of those five films were relative underperformers due to disinterest in the format when even the most ardent fan must admit to subpar product. Of course, the industry is always looking for a scapegoat when the answer is clearly, “terrible movies are being made and should not be,” so the disappearance of 3D (not likely) will happen before a sudden spike i...
