BoxOfficeMojo

So maybe they will be Aliene. Bay saying now that TMNT will be just Ninja Turtles. You know what F you Bay!!!!! He is not directing only producing. I hate him!!!

Gary Olman almost made so many people super happy and super mad all at once.

Holy close call, Batman!
Gary Oldman almost lost the script for The Dark Knight Rises.

The film, out in June, concludes director Christopher Nolan's superhero trilogy, and the plot is top secret. "I was in a panic for 20 minutes," Oldman told the BBC at the Empire Awards over the weekend. (Oldman was given the best-actor trophy for his work in Tinker Tailer Soldier Spy). "I thought, 'where the hell have I put it?' " He added that it would have been big trouble for him. "It had my name on it. They would have killed me." But a crisis was averted, as he remembered where he had stashed it. "I'd gone out for dinner," the actor explained, "and I had put it in the room between the mattress and the bed, because I couldn't scrunch it into the safe."
"I was half-thinking about something else and shoved it there."

This weekend at the box office:

Cameron takes a dive
Well somewhat.  Director  of such low budget cult films such as Titanic and Avatar, James Cameron became the 3rd man in history (and the first since the 60’s) to go to the deepest, darkest place on Earth.  After he left the DMV he then took a sub down to the bottom of the Mariana Trench (wakka wakka).  Him and his sub built for one endured 7 tons of per square
inch of pressure at a depth of 36,000 feet at the trench’s lowest point: the Challenger Deep
(that’s one mile deeper than Mount Everest is tall).  Although Cameron was supposed to be
down in the deep for six hours he stayed only a little bit over three ascending rather rapidly
in 70 minutes.
