Sunday, November 14 by

Darren Aronofsky would like you to see his new film, Black Swan, as a companion to his previous Oscar nominated The Wrestler. Maybe they’ll show as a double feature.

The Three Stooges movie may be dead. At least, according to serious actor, Jim Carrey (Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls, Batman Forever). He shot down any hope of seeing him portray Curly in The Farrelly Brothers stab at the classic masochists. His main reason? Jim Carrey does not fat suit.

A montage of people meeting glass entitled Defenestration the Movie. If one thing came out of it, it’s that I learned “defenestration” is the act of someone going through a window. Kind of bummed they missed the opening scene from Wanted.
