Merry Christmas! Let's see what Santa has in his sack for you, hmm …

Tron is back! Bruce Boxleitner, the original Tron, has been added to the cast of Tron 2.

The Eddie Murphy-as-Riddler story will not go away. Why? Because U.K. Sun reporter Gordon Smart, who delivered this inconceivable bit of casting news, has now come forward to defend his inside info. The Guardian film blog also throws in this mind-bending bit of nothing to keep tongues wagging:

Off the record, Smart revealed his precise source, and if we are to believe him, it would appear a pretty reliable one. It follows, then, that the rest of yesterday's story might also be falsehood-free.

That should clear things up.

Best. Movie. Ever. Take a deep breath and make sure you have a soft place to land, because your mind is about to be blown. The Expendables, Sylvester Stallone's action flick about a band of mercenaries, has lined up the following cast: Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Jason Statham and Forest Whitaker. Add Mickey Rourke to the cast, pump "Sex Panther" through the air ducts, and theaters everywhere will enjoy a full-tilt boogie of testosterone the likes of which the world hasn't seen since The Dirty Dozen.

Just sit right back, and you'll hear the tale: Gilligan's Island is headed for the big screen. Hear that? It's the sound of people who remember Gilligan's Island not giving a shit.

Roger Ebert isn't feeling the Christmas Spirit: In fact, he lays the smack down pretty hard on Frank Miller's comic-book adaptation.
