The Amazing Spider-Man poster tag line is "The Untold Story"? I'm pretty sure the story was told less then 10 years ago

I love that Coppola is making a movie about the Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch. Is there anyone better for the job? I think not. I read a really lovely Vanity Fair article about it a while back and have been interested in what led these teenagers to do this ever since. Our obsession with glamour and celebrity is taking us to crazy places...

I really like that dude in Cronenberg's son's movie. I've been wanting to see him front a film. It'll be interesting to see what sort of directors chops the spawn of a genius like the CRONS has as well.

I wasn't excited for the American Psycho remake until I read that Bret Easton Ellis wanted Scott from The Kardashian show to play the lead. IF THAT HAPPENED I'D GO BONKERS. He's a real life Patrick Bateman who is obsessed with the glitz and glamour of our generation, much like Bateman. PLEASE LET THAT HAPPEN.

Promo for the second season of GoT before Boardwalk, and an early premiere of Luck right after? Big, big night for HBO. Can't wait to see those ratings.

It's a completely different telling of the origin, and this one has a better chance of not being a pile of shit.

Fuck the American Psycho remake and fuck that it takes place now. That book is about American consumerism in 80's. It is NOT the same in another context. Also, Christian Bale is irreplaceable as Bateman.

American psycho doesn't need a remake. Seriously. Also that poster for batman is sick. I'm so excited for all the dark knight rises news that's been dropping. I think that poster does a lot to confirm people's suspicions about what happens in the prologue
