This Sunday's Video Music Awards just got another dose of the King of Pop. On Tuesday, MTV announced that Janet Jackson would be opening up the show with a tribute to her late brother Michael (which is already inspiring speculation and expectations among fans). The latest news is that Sunday's broadcast of the VMAs will contain the premiere of the trailer for "This Is It," the film that incorporates rehearsal and performance footage from the shows that were supposed to make up Michael's scheduled 50-date residency at the O2 Arena in London. The film hits theaters on October 28 and will only be around for a limited two week engagement, but this Sunday's Vma show will be the first chance anybody has to check out footage from the movie.

Best storytelling in a documentary: "The Cove"
I never thought I would see that day when I would write an article and when it came to choosing categories for our search options I would click both Martial Arts and Western. But here we are…
I think the last movie I saw involving Asian swordsmen plying their trade in the Western landscape was… what? And I don’t mean something like Shanghai Noon. I mean honest to goodness swordsmen hacking it out against cowboys. Once Upon A Time in China and America? Or am I going back farther to Red Sun with Bronson and Mifune? But look at this! This is a martial arts western called The Warriors Way. It was once called Laundry Warrior and either that was deemed insensitive to all the Chinese immigrants who settled in the West at that time or the title itself wasn’t appealing. So what is really going on here? »

- [This evening, I'll be viewing the world premiere of Sophie Barthes' Cold Souls - so I figured I'd dust off an In the Pipeline interview we conducted with her early last year. Look for more coverage late tonite, or early tomorrow.] "You know how there’s good years for wine? This has been a good year for me.” – Sophie Barthes It would be nice to wake up next to Sophie Barthes. She’s beautiful, intelligent, talented and just so happens to be a morning person. To rise and shine with the Sundance lab alum is to bear witness to her early morning writing ritual. Ms. Barthes, who is currently in pre-production with her first feature film Cold Souls, wakes up and records her dreams. Sometimes these subconscious episodes are intriguing enough to become screenplays that go on to win Nantucket Iff’s Tony Cox Award and the interest of Paul Giamatti and producer wife Elizabeth. At least that was the case with Cold Souls. Barthes talks about the dream that sparked it all in the summer 2007 issue of Filmmaker Magazine in which she was named one of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film. »
