As the microscopic film world on the web awaits the Cannes lineup, Variety's Todd McCarthy gets a mini-scoop, the news that Clint Eastwood will be bringing his horror film, The Changeling, to Cannes. This is good news for everyone if…

W Chatter Hits the Web

In the same way it now seems surreal that the tabloids are going after celebrity children as their latest obsession, it is also strange that it is now the norm to discuss a film's script, as if reading a script is any indication of how well…

Hot N’ Sexy for ‘W’

Burn After Reading Gets Release Date

Burn After Reading, starring George Clooney, Tilda Swinton, Brad Pitt, John Malkovich, and Frances McDormand, has gotten a September 12 release date, the AP reports. While Oscar watchers will pin their hopes on the Coens, lightning…

An Easy Sell But Viral?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BgyhHBoz50 Much ado is being made about the new Indiana Jones trailer being a "viral hit." To me, a viral hit means something that comes out of nowhere grows in stature because users spread the word, not a…
