Entertainment Link-Off: Closer Than You Think

After several weeks of rotten films hitting the screen at the theatres, it’s rather refreshing to see three fresh films debuting at the box office this weekend. Topping the critically applauded films is The Muppers starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams. I figured it would be appropriate to start off with the leading actress from the film no?

After the jump, Nolan talks The Dark Knight, best Save Community posters, 3D conversion of old films is the rage, Twilight is still bad for you, Ah-nold gives the best audio commentary ever in Total Recall and Chuck Norris is now kicking ass in the World of Warcraft.

It’s true that comedies don’t get the recognition it deserves during the Oscars, which is why Judd Apatow wants a Best Comedy category put in. Given all the love for the drama category at the Oscars, perhaps it’s about time films get recognized that getting people to laugh. (LA Times)

Given all the flicks are being converted to 3D (e.g. Star Wars, Titanic), I suppose the whole 3D gimmick in theatres isn’t quite dead yet. Now, even Elijah Wood believes that the Lord of the Rings trilogy could be converted to the third dimension. (Den of Geek)

While the study is incomplete… well I should say that it doesn’t give the full story nor does it truly represent the full story, it highlights that women is responsible for 50% of the ticket sales in theatres yet female actresses in film/TV only make up 33% of the speaking roles. (Slashfilm)

Images of Prometheus have made it online. (Shock Til You Drop)
