Angelina Jolie talks about 'In the Land of Blood and Honey' on 60 Minutes - her first time writing and directing

I wouldn’t call myself a huge Angelina Jolie fan. It’s not that I don’t think she’s a great actress or anything, but I’ve never found myself watching random movies just because I know she’s going to be starring in them. (Neil Patrick Harris in Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle is a completely different story.) But after watching a recent 60 Minutes segment, I’m trying to recall exactly what turned me off from Jolie from the first place. Oh, right, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, but I think I can safely say enough time has passed. I think we can all move on.

Depp and Jolie tango in The Tourist (trailer)

Don't get near Angelina Jolie; she's bad news bears. If she doesn't set you up or try to kill you, you'll certainly die in the crossfire. I've always said this but no one seems to listen, and now Johnny Depp has made the double mistake of speaking with her on a train and then tangoing. 

Jokes aside, The Tourist comes from Director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck, who helmed the Oscar-winning The Lives of Others a few years back, and a team of writers and re-writers. Though the plot looks somewhat unoriginal, this one looks like a lot of fun. It's nice to see Depp act outside a Tim Burton or Jerry Bruckheimer movie for a change.

Inception #1 again this weekend! Has Salt spilled?

I love it when a great movie is rewarded in dollars. The final numbers are in and Inception, which I saw again this weekend, maintained its momentum this weekend, raking in $43.5 million, a drop of only 31% from last week ($62.7 million). To put that into perspective, most films drop somewhere between 45 and 75% in their second weekend of release. For example, The Last Airbender dropped 58.7% in its second weekend. This shows that Inception is getting good word of mouth, and should have no trouble making back its budget  of $160 million. According to Box Office Mojo, the film is holding up better than any film in a similar circumstance since The Matrix in 1999.
