The controversial film “Zero Dark Thirty” opens nationwide this week, but it’s already reopened a political wound that lawmakers would rather see salved — whether the role of torture was effective in the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

J.R.R. Tolkien fans, you'd better enjoy the Hobbit trilogy—because these will probably be the last films ever adapted from the acclaimed Lord of the Rings author's work. Peter Jackson, who has adapted all the recent big-screen versions of Tolkien's Middle-earth saga, said he's open to seeing some of the author's other writings on the big screen.

3D filmmaker and deep ocean diver James Cameron has an idea that he thinks will convince more "A-list" directors to put out 3D content. His plan is called 5D and it will not immerse you at all like those rumbling "4D" movie theater chairs made by D-Box. Nor will 5D bring any kind of Smell-O-Vision to the movie experience.
