I wrote up a review of Cloverfield for those interested. The movie set a new record as the highest grossing weekend box office opening for a January release with $41 million. You can discuss the movie in our official Cloverfield thread; be sure to check out the Entertainment forum for more topics of interest.
I Am Legend debuted at $76.5 million, becoming the biggest December opening ever by beating out previous champ The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ($72.6 million). You can discuss the movie in our official entertainment thread and read my review here.
Progress between the WGA and the AMPTP was halted when the latter group walked away from the negotiating table. The outlook looks grim for our favorite television shows, and their immediate production seems less likely as the scripted season is coming to a close.
