-- Tom Cruise was caught location scouting in Prague for the 'Mission Impossible' sequel that apparently isn't a 'Mission Impossible' sequel, but technically is. Confused? So are we.

-- Blockbuster is finally filing for bankruptcy this week. You remember Blockbuster, right? Back in the old days when you'd have to walk a mile up hill in the snow to go to rent a video at an actual store. Bah! Good riddance physical activity!

-- Rob Zombie has chosen the next film he will direct, and it's called 'The Lords of Salem'. No, sadly, it's not a story about a bunch of skateboarders accused of being witches (get it? 'Lords of Dogtown'? Salem? Zing!).
