  • ‘The Snapper’ details an unexpected pregnancy

    Pregnant women get asked many questions as they await their babies: When are you due? Is it a boy or a girl? Have you picked out a name? Have you written a birth plan?
    Or even, sometimes: Who’s the father?
    In “The Snapper,” sort of a 1993 Irish precursor to the 2007 American mega hit “Knocked Up” — in that both comedies star a fetus that does not result from sacred marital love, but rather from booze — 20-year-old Sharon Curley (Tina Kellegher) does not want to answer that last question.

  • ‘Petra and the Jay’ takes the stage

    A flying carrot, a dinocyborg and a silicon-based gernanium eater are just a few characters Los Alamos audiences will be able to spend time with.

  • Cameron pilots plans for 3-D film about ocean dive

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — James Cameron will be one of the stars of his next big-screen adventure, a chronicle of the expedition on which he has made record-setting ocean dives.
    Cameron said he plans a TV special for National Geographic and a 3-D theatrical release on the Deepsea Challenger missions, which included his seven-mile descent to the ocean’s deepest point in the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific. It was the deepest solo dive ever, surpassing the five-mile descent he made a few weeks earlier.

  • ‘Hunger Games’ opening night predictions rank high

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fans are so hungry for “The Hunger Games” that Hollywood’s buzzing about an opening weekend to rival the $140 million debuts of some of the “Twilight” movies.
    Early tracking pegged “The Hunger Games” at only about half that much. But box-office forecasters have been continually revising their predictions upward based on audience awareness and advance ticket sales.
    Opening Friday, “The Hunger Games” has a strong shot at shattering the record March debut of $116.1 million domestically for 2010’s “Alice in Wonderland.” It would be only the second movie opening in March to top $100 million in the first weekend.
