Four Clips from ‘Paper Man’

— by SEAN GERSKI — For a movie starring Jeff Daniels, Lisa Kudrow, Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone, “Paper Man” has decidedly flown under the radar. The movie debuted at the 2009 Los Angeles Film Festival and subsequently was picked up by MPI for North American distribution. The[...]

Stark Expo 2010 Site Launches

— by BEN FOWLER — I’ve got to admit, I’m a sucker for a good viral campaign. The recent Tron Legacy virals are good, but the best is still the campaign hyping up the release of The Dark Knight. It can be inspired marketing if utilised correctly. Now, Jon Favreau’s soon-to-be-releas[...]

About That New Godzilla Project …

— by CAM SMITH — Back in 1998, just prior to the release of Roland Emmerich’s “Godzilla,” my local Zellers had a massive sale on VHS tapes chronicling the big green guy’s destructive adventures. For about a month straight, I gleefully submerged myself into his colorful, c[...]

Five Clips from ‘The Last Song’

Poster Peek: ‘Killers’

— by ROB COX — First, in the interest of full disclosure, I must admit to having a certain amount of bias against Katherine Heigl. When I first saw her several years ago on “Gray’s Anatomy” (a TV show of which I’m not a fan) I remember thinking two things very clearly: “wow, sh[...]
