LA Times reporter Rebecca Keegan joins us for our weekly segment, On the Lot, with everything you need to know about what's up in Tinsel Town.
It was another pretty good weekend for Hollywood. One of the blockbusters in the age of blockbusters: "Man of Steel." It brought in almost $200 million globally, and Fast & Furious 6 is well over $600 million. Action and adventure are paying off, but really what everyone has been talking about isn't box office. It's a little kerfuffle between the number one and number two talent agencies in town, WME and CAA.
Sometimes it gets a little bare knuckle in Hollywood and sometimes the industry shows its muscle in other ways. There's a new report by the LA City Ethics Commission that shows several entertainment firms spending big money to lobby at City Hall.
A new film about the reclusive author J. D. Salinger doesn't open until next fall, but the trailer is creating some real buzz.
Now available on YouTube, for a small fee are full versions of such classics as "Attack of the Crab Monsters," "Brain Dead" and "Eat My Dust." All films by the legend of low-budget, Roger Corman.
