Be honest: every time you play the lottery, the same fantasy runs through your head, of you sitting in a bath full of champagne, wearing a top hat and monocle, and throwing wads of cash into the air gleefully. Before you’ve even left the shop, you’ve spent half the money that you’re almost definitely destined to win, no matter what the actual odds.
Feeding this fantasy is the many, many movies that have involved lottery wins, and the results for the winners. They are invariably everyman characters, just like you, who need an escape from the mediocrity of mundane life, and who see their universe changed entirely by the huge injection of cash brought when the right numbers come in.
Now more than ever, the experience of buying a ticket is even easier, so that dream can be fed without even needing to go to the shop, »

Good Note Productions is financing. “The Surface” is scheduled to start lensing in Milwaukee next week.
Script, written by Jeff Gendelman, centers on two strangers — each at the end of their rope — who suddenly meet in the middle of the unpredictable waters of Lake Michigan following a small plane crash.
Mulkey was recently seen in “The Purge” and co-stars in the upcoming Tom Hanks drama “Captain Phillips.” Cates is a co-producer on the upcoming Steve Jobs biopic “Jobs” and directed 2011′s “Lucky,” starring Colin Hanks.
Before turning to screenwriting, Gendelman guest-starred on “Law and Order” and “Beverly Hills, 90210.”

When it comes to Hollywood people on Twitter, there are basically four different types:
1. Those who just think they're way too cool for tweet school before setting virtual foot onto the platform in the first place (here you have your Megan Fox-style fails);
2. The ones that are obviously controlled by some P.R. lackey receiving triple-filtered fluff to post (lookin' at the noob, Liam Hemsworth);
3. Those other guys who totally should have had someone buffering their tweets and/or should altogether just avoid typing while under the influence of alcohol, anger or any other inhibition-lowering stimuli (most recently, Alec Baldwin);
4. And, mercifully, the select few elite who actually give a hoot and have bothered to figure out what in H is going on with the social networking game. There are many different subsets of Type 4, but they all share one thing in common, and it's very simple: Personality. »
