Update: John Leguizamo may becoming something of a dinosaur expert. In Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Leguizamo's character Sid "adopts" dino eggs and the baby dinos that hatch to the wrath of their real dino mom. Now, Leguizamo will voice Alex, an "Alexomis bird." (Anyone ever heard of an Alexomis dinosaur?) Also joining the cast is Justin Long (pictured right, he voices Alvin in the Alvin and the Chipmunks movies) as Patchi, a Pachyrhinosaurus. Tiya Sircar (The Internship, Hotel for Dogs) voices Juniper and Skylar Stone ("Max & Luther") voices Scowler, who round out the Pachyrhinosaurus trio.

Gavigan [pictured] has a proven record of bringing historical dramas to the big screen, such as 2003’s Luther starring Alfred Molina and Joseph Fiennes and the 2006 film End Of The Spear, which also concerns Christian missionaries.
Taylor was a 19th century Protestant missionary and medical student sent to China.
He was renowned for his sensitivity to the local culture, treatment of thousands of opium victims and for establishing the organisation China Inland Mission that was responsible for 18,000 conversions.
“This film has enormous potential,” said producer and Half Crown Media chairman Ken Haron. “The universal appeal of this extraordinary drama deserves the talents of Bart Gavigan and others who together will create an outstanding production and worldwide release.”
The project is out to cast and investors. »
Justice and vengeance become entwined in “Michael Kohlhaas,” Arnaud des Pallieres’ stolid treatment of Heinrich von Kleist’s influential novella about a 16th-century horse merchant whose mistreatment by those in power leads to an unholy uprising. Kleist’s direct language and straightforward storytelling are nowhere in evidence in Pallieres’ narratively challenged adaptation, featuring a French-speaking Mads Mikkelsen in one of his least impressive characterizations. Though the Cannes competition berth will generate a certain interest, there’s unlikely to be much horse trading on this title, even among fest programmers.
In 1969, when Volker Schlondorff made his “Michael Kohlhaas,” he added newsreel footage on the European release prints showing student protests around the world. The device served to make direct parallels between the novella’s themes and the unrest of ’68, highlighting the continued vitality of a tale featuring a morally upright figure resisting the corrupting influences of power. Kleist himself, a determinedly »

A great many things happen in the "Glee" Season 4 finale, "All or Nothing." Brittany deals with being a sudden and MIT-bound genius. Ryder finds out the identity of his catfishing buddy. Rachel has a "Funny Girl" callback.
There's a proposal. There's a wedding. And many people sing many songs.
Do any of these things lead to season-ending resolution? Not really, but there's plenty to entertain you on the way.
Good Brittany S. Pierce
Kids, if you want to go to college, you should study hard, ace the Sat and have a bunch of activities. Doodling on the back of a Scantron sheet really isn't enough.
And you can find any pattern you want in randomness if you try hard enough. Just saying ...
"Brittany, it's possible that you might be the most brilliant scientific mind since Albert Einstein."
Rachel is all alone
But she can sing really good. Not that it matters. »

Complex and arcane religious rituals wouldn’t seem to make for good filmed entertainment. And yet, the Vatican’s papal election process – occurring again this week to name a successor to Pope Benedict XVI – has been detailed in cinema almost as many times as the more Hollywood-sounding subject of papal assassination attempts.
And while the workings of the pontifical election conclave might not be surprising in a religious film, they were even deemed dramatic enough for inclusion in The Godfather Part III. Yep, Francis Ford Coppola’s 1990 crime epic takes a break between whackings to portray the 1978 conclave that elected the first Pope John Paul.
But more impressive than the fact that cinema has depicted this process is the fact that, on occasion, the movies seem to have gotten it right. When a »
