Actually glad they're out of bankruptcy. Would be a shame for one of the oldest institutions to be gone.

05) Dan Brown has taken on screenwriting duties for the adaptation of his book The Lost Symbol.
Hanks coming back for it?

06) Check out two new posters for Kevin Smith’s Red State.
The boys look very silly. Nicholas Braun looks even taller than normal.
I didn't know Beaver was going to be in this.

10) Very, very awesome. The Beauty of Pixar.
Love it. Sigh, I want to be part of the Pixar family so much.

Television
04) HBO will film and air Broadway’s The Pee-wee Herman Show in 2011.
I wonder how well the show will actually do. Broadway hasn't been doing too sweet lately. A bunch of great shows are closing.
