It’s great that Disney and Sam Raimi finally sorted things out with Warner Bros. (who hold the old MGM copyright to The Wizard of Oz) so that the prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful, could finally be released in theaters as it was meant to be seen.
If you weren’t aware, Warner Bros. claimed that the new film couldn’t make the Wicked Witch green, since that was something specific to their film, and not L. Frank Baum’s children’s books. So instead we get a Glinda-riffic Michelle Williams all in white, a fashionably red Mila Kunis, and a darkly chic Rachel Weisz (channeling Charlize Theron in Snow White and the Huntsman) as the hottest witchy witches since Idina Menzel took the stage as Elpheba in Wicked.

Yesterday morning about 30 people gathered outside of the Warner Brothers corporate office in midtown to protest the new TV show starring several-times-disgraced Republican Jeanine Pirro.
“I don’t think people want to watch a show of a woman involved in putting innocent people in jail,” said Sam Zherka, perhaps optimistically. Zherka, owner of the Read More
Uh oh. Last December we wrote about how much I am Legend freaked us out (seriously, we think the workout our heart got during the film qualifies as aerobic activity). The movie, based on the 1954 Richard Matheson book and starring Will Smith, laid out a vision of New York City almost completely wiped Read More
One day you’re a New York City subway toll booth worker, then you total your car in an accident that lands you in physical therapy, which is sort of boring (plus you have no cash to buy a new car). So, you enter a screenwriting competition on a whim, hoping to score some prize money. Read More
J.K. Rowling and Warner Bros. filed a lawsuit at Manhattan federal court today over a book billed as an unofficial encyclopedic companion to the Harry Potter book series, according to Reuters. They claim the book infringes copyright and attempts to cash in on the successful series.
