- Penny Arcade lovingly weigh in on Roger Ebert's 'games can never be art' position. (I was being sarcastic when I said lovingly.)

- Disney-Pixar have officially announced Monsters Inc. 2 for November 16, 2012. That means we'll have two Pixar films in 2012, the other being Brave (formerly titled Bear and the Bow), the Reese Witherspoon-starrer about a princess who shirks her royal duties to became a world-class archer.

- Seth Rogen has confirmed to HitFix that Sony is giving the go ahead to convert The Green Hornet into 3D in post production. However unlike Clash of the Titan's abysmal 3D conversion, none of the effects shots have actually started, so though Michel Gondry shot the film with 2D cameras, they are, more or less, starting the 3D from scratch. Drew McWeeny's explanation of it all is well worth the read.

- The Last Airbender, on the other hand, has been in post for some time, so Paramount's decision to now convert it to 3D in is a little more worrisome. Kind of a bummer considering all the trailers so far have had me surprisingly eager to see a new film from M. Night Shyamalan after the embarrassment that is The Happening.
