The trailer for The Quiet
  • "Popular cheerleader Nina Deer's (Elisha Cuthbert) seemingly unblemished suburban world is turned upside down when her parents (Edie Falco and Martin Donovan) adopt their recently orphaned goddaughter Dot (Camilla Belle). Dot's arrival delivers a blow to Nina's idyllic social life and triggers the unraveling of the family's darkest secrets. Both Nina's family and friends, including the school hunk Connor (Shawn Ashmore, The 'X-Men' trilogy), develop an odd fascination with Dot and confide in her their troubling secrets. Dot quietly shoulders the burdens and secrets of those around her, while continuing to hold what is perhaps the biggest secret -- her own. Directed by Jamie Babbit ('But I'm a Cheerleader'), 'The Quiet' is about family secrets, friendship, trust and betrayal. Through Nina's eyes, Babbit takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride- through the hilarious and often crude interactions of high schools students and a family where happy faces disguise ugly truths."

The Weekend Warrior makes the call for this weekend's box office
  • This week happens to be a fluke. It's in the height of the summer season, and the only two releases are turkeys. During the equivalent weekend last year, the new new movies were Wonka and Wedding Crashers, so the comparative numbers are expected to have a case of the super-suck. Last week was 48% above the same weekend last year. This week is expected to be DOWN 10%!!! That's following seven consecutive UP weeks.

This week's movies (2400 screens): Little Man - NO good reviews. It has been hidden from the big reviewers, which is always a certain concession that the reviews will be hideous. The tally so far:
  • "This movie has suck written all over it."
  • "It's unfathomably awful"

This week's movies (3000 screens): You, Me and Dupree - 14% positive reviews.
  • OUCH! The reviews are harsh. There is only one "fresh" one, amd it isn't very fresh at all: "A middling third-wheel comedy elevated a couple of notches by the ineffably weird charms of Owen Wilson."

House to Vote on Bill to Curb Online Gaming
  • ... part of the Republican leadership's election-year "values" agenda — designed to choke off the flow of U.S. money to poker and other gambling sites, most of which are based overseas, because Internet gambling is illegal in the United States.

Lawsuit says "Pirates" was Pirated
  • Not only that, he has some pretty good points, including the use of his exact names for many characters and the Black Pearl ship
  • Of course, he's fighting Disney, which probably employs more copyright lawyers than the rest of the world combined. Should prove interesting.

Here's the trailer for Crank, Jason Stratham's latest
  • "Chev Chelios is about to begin his morning with an unexpected wake-up call. Groggy, practically unable to move and with a heart that's barely beating, he hears the voice of thug Ricky Verona, who reveals Chev has been poisoned in his sleep and only has an hour to live. As it turns out, Chev is a hit man who freelances for a major West Coast syndicate. A run of the mill job the night before instead went awry: he let his target slip away in an effort to quit professional killing and start a new life with his girlfriend Eve. Now, Chev must keep moving to stay alive: the only way to prolong the poison from stopping his heart is to keep his adrenaline flowing. As the clock ticks, Chelios cuts a swath through the streets of Los Angeles, wreaking havoc on those who dare stand in his way. He must rescue Eve from danger, stay two steps ahead of his nemeses and search for an antidote to save his own life."
