Movie News Today

Orson Welles' final film, which has been locked away in a vault for four decades, is expected to see the light of day sometime soon.

Movies and Other Things provides a brief look at one of my very favorite films, "Into the Wild." A fitting choice given that it was unceremoniously snubbed for an Oscar nod just about 3 years ago today.

Cinema Slants discusses the somewhat triumphant return of Roger Ebert and "At the Movies" to television. On the whole I thought the first volume was a good start and I'm thrilled that Ebert is back on screen even if it's more in name than anything else.

I've seen 8 of the 10 films nominated for Best Picture this year (more on that to come). I missed "127 Hours", however, so have a look at Celluloid Zombie's take.

Robert Downey, Jr. has been working on a movie adaptation of the Mr. Peabody sketch from the "Rocky and Bullwinkle" TV show. Weird.

"The Hunger Games" has officially been given a March 23, 2012 release date. I loved this series and I'm extremely interested to see how in the world it's going to translate to the screen.
