The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that "House M.D." co-star Olivia Wilde and Turistas actress Beau Garrett will star in the clandestine operation known as Tron 2.0, the sequel to the 1982 Disney cult classic being directed by Joseph Kosinski. At Comic Con earlier this year some footage for the new film appeared out of nowhere featuring Jeff Bridges as Kevin Flynn, the character from the first film who battled against the Master Control Program once he was trapped inside of it. However, outside of the preview footage nothing more has been shown and that footage hasn't even made it online outside of bootleg format. No synopsis is known, but with the announcement of Wilde and Garrett's casting we get a tidbit of new info. The new movie is acting as a "next chapter." Plot details are being guarded closely, but Wilde will play a worker in the virtual world who tries »

Cinematic Titanic, a revival.
For the robust fan who remembers the sarcasm-laced weekly original TV show called Mystery Science Theater 3000 (aka MST3K), the time to miss the show has come… and gone. The creative forces that were behind MST3K have regrouped and created a new effort for movie ripping and call it Cinematic Titanic. It has the same flair and edge as the original work, but goes just a bit further.
MST3K had characters sit around, their silhouettes in front of the movie while they added their own sarcastic observations to the obvious B quality works they played for the audience A quick example would be if a car chase ended with a car exploding. Don’t you sometimes think, “Why do the cars always explode at the end of these chases?“ Well, they don’t think it. They say it. It was originally on the airwaves from 1988 to »
