Interesting/amusing Rumour Factoid: A good friend of mine recently attended a screening where he overhead a big-time Hollywood director saying:
"Lots of weather and shooting problems on 'True Grit' ... Paramount didn't like the version the Coen brothers turned in and recut the picture. Coens didn't like what the studio did, but Paramount released it anyway and the movie's a hit ..."
Sony's 3D The Green Hornet grossed an estimated $34 million from 3,584 theaters over the weekend to nab the second-best opening ever for the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. ...
