Movie News Today

Kevin Costner has been asked to join the cast of "Superman" in which he would play Pa Kent. As I've said before, I have an unhealthy obsession with Costner and this could be a brilliant pairing.

GQ discusses the cowardice of movie studios and puts a final bow on the stink-fest that was 2010.

To contrast GQ, the LA Times presents a compelling case for the future of film, citing the large number of smart movies that made a ton of money AND were nominated for awards. It may take a couple of years to come around but I think the Times is spot on. Films like "Inception" and "Social Network" respect their audiences as much if not more than their subject matter and it shows in both the box office numbers and the reviews. Bravo.

SplitSider gives us 26 roles turned down by Bill Murray and discusses the impact on the films. I saw "Ghostbusters" in a theater last week; one of those Retro Viewing things. Because of how sporadic and quirky his film choices are, I sometimes forget how incredible Murray really is. Cool article.
