Theatrical News

Luke Hickman provided us with mounds of news about movies still in the theater. His Weekend Movies update gave us an idea what to expect during at the box office, and let us know that we should all go and see 'Bridesmaids.' News about the ‘Dark Tower’ movie adaption isn’t promising for fans. Luke gave us the skinny on casting for the 'Hunger Games' movie that is sure to be a hit with fans of the books from all over the world.

We also published a theatrical review of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides', which Luke says isn’t nearly as exciting as it should be.

Josh also brought us a unique bit of news about a 'Dune' documentary about Alejandro Jodorowsky’s 'Dune' movie that was never able to make it to the big screen. The most interesting movie that never happened.
