‘The Social Network’ Is ‘Not Really About Facebook,’ Rooney Mara Says

Sometimes, projects are announced that leave everyone scratching their heads during the many months it takes to actually cast, film and assemble the thing. Why would Gus Van Sant want to remake “Psycho” scene-by-scene? Why would Pixar make a film about a 78-year-old man?

New Nightmare On Elm Street Poster

Warner Brothers has released a brand new banner for A Nightmare On Elm Street, the remake of the classic horror film where a man named Freddy Krueger would bug chicks while they were sleeping and kill the dudes that were sleeping with said chicks. He was a very jealous individual.

He should be calling 911 because water has obviously damaged the hardwood floors and she fell through and looks stuck. I hope he does the right thing and helps her out.
