    Ferguson Riffs on Late Night Shifts

    When my 20-year-old is home, she TiVos Oprah and Conan. (She refuses to watch Leno, Letterman or, God forbid, Charlie Rose.) In passing The Tonight Show mantle to O'Brien, NBC was trying to grow a younger viewer base, which takes time. By moving Leno to 10 PM, the network gambled that it could solve...

    Reitman's Up in the Air Press Tour Simulator

    Jason Reitman not only put together a pie chart from his Up in the Air media rounds of most frequent questions, but now he's made a video of his endless global press tour that shows what a blur this whole thing must be.

    Gaiman's Statuesque Stars Nighy

    This lovely ten-minute silent Neil Gaiman short starring Bill Nighy is up on YouTube for the moment. This gifted fantasy writer's books have not always translated to film, although Coraline did, quite well. I'd like to see what he would do with his own stuff.

    Last Post of 2009: Avatar Passes 800 Million, Year and Decade Wraps, Gilliam's First Short

    Twelve years after Titanic, another late-year James Cameron release is climbing the box office charts. I thought I was safe with my estimate of $1 billion worldwide ($400 m domestic, $600 foreign). But Avatar is already passing $800 million! It could challenge Titanic's $1.8 billion record after all...

    Trailer Watch: How to Train Your Dragon

    While most folks would pick Pixar over Dreamworks animation any day, Jeffrey Katzenberg does know how to craft accessible commercial movies like Madagascar and Shrek (the fourth installment is in the works under live-action director Mike Mitchell). But I am hearing good buzz on How to Train Your Dra...

    Spike Lee Directs Michael Jackson Homage

    I finally caught up with Kenny Ortega's Michael Jackson rehearsal film, This is It. I see why people like it so much--Jackson still had more chops than most people dream of. But the movie's strength--its bare-bones straight-on simplicity--is a weakness for Oscar voters. I don't see them loving the ...
