    Weekend Box Office: The Horror!

    The Final Destination got a major lift from premium 3-D ticket prices as rivals cried foul, "no fair." The Weinstein Co. inexplicably competed with itself as Rob Zombie's Halloween II came in third after strong second-week holdover Inglourious Basterds.

    Awards buzz, Indie News, Disney Confab

    In Indie news, despite Inglourious Basterds' rousing start, the Weinsteins aren't out of the woods. They weren't taking any chances. They upped their media spend by several millions in the week before the opening, targeting their weakest link, women. It worked. The WSJ explains why the Weinsteins fa...

    Inglourious Basterds: Recut, Nine Clips

    Quentin Tarantino's recut of Inglourious Basterds is one minute longer than the Cannes version, and much improved.
