Heartland Hearts 'Horse': In all the hoopla about Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin, it’s easy to forget the director has another film coming out this year. To build buzz for War Horse, a period drama, Disney/DreamWorks began screening the film in smaller cities across the country on Tuesday night, and early audience reaction has been positive.

Going to the Dog(s): Actor Steve Carell is on a roll with news on yet another starring project. Director John Carney (Once) has been hired to helm Dogs of Babel, which tells the tale of a linguistics professor and his evolving relationship with his dog, the only witness to his wife’s death. (Deadline)
 
Let’s Clash Again: Ahead of next year’s release of Wrath of the Titans (AKA Clash of the Titans 2), Warner Bros. is making plans for a third installment of the series, hiring Dan Mazeau and David Leslie Johnson, two of the writers involved on Wrath, to develop and write a treatment for another adventure. May we suggest Titans Vow Revenge? (The Hollywood Reporter)

(The Hollywood Reporter)
 
Recyling Movies: What happens to all the props used to decorate sets in movies, TV shows, and commercials?
