All Together Now

If you could get the surviving Beatles band members, widows and their producer reuniting to rise above a reputation for discord and collaborate on a lavish stage show with Cirque de Soleil, it would be "All Together Now." The film shows Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr working with Yoko Ono, George Harrison's widow Olivia and The Beatles' producer Sir George Martin remixing their music for the 21st century with the Las Vegas stage production of "Love." The film's Canadian director, Adrian Wills said: "I wanted to tell this story about these people who are myths. They're mythic characters. This was a way for them to sort of deal with their past in a way that was in the present."

Superman: Man of Steel

Brandon Routh spoke here to about returning as the world's most famous Kryptonian, saying: "I think it seems as though [the 'Justice League' movie is] not happening, it's on the back burner right now so it's just 'Man of Steel' now. I know, they're busy writing a script and then I trust we'll be starting next year, early next year. That's my timeline anyway."

Fritz Lang's 1927 silent masterpiece, for many years available only as a scratchy, washed-out print, has been painstakingly restored frame by frame by Kino International and is due to be released on high-definition Blu-ray disc in 2009. The film was restored in 2002, on the 75th anniversary of the original release and included a new soundtrack based on the original score.
