Even though "Jack & Jill" scraped the bottom of the Adam Sandler barrel, proving to be one of the worst box office outings he's had in years, Sony still believes in the comedian. And why not.

After three in-depth "Paradise Lost" documentaries (by filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky), countless bouts of media coverage, benefit concerts, awareness campaigns and more, is another movie about the plight of the now freed (but still legally guilty) West Memphis Three needed? Well, it seems the answer is yes, and as the trailer for the forthcoming "West Of Memphis" displays, even if you know everything about the story, it's no less fascinating or compelling.

It's all about the cash. If you had told us last year that "The Inbetweeners," based on the Brit teen sitcom, would get a theatrical release in the U.S. we would have said you were crazy.

In an event that no one saw coming, last weekend, the micro-budgeted found footage horror film "The Devil Inside," managed to scare up $34 million and displace "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" from the top of the box office heap. We got a chance this week to chat with director William Brent Bell and writer Matthew Peterman and they told us what it was like to be behind a huge smash, what's coming next, and what people think about that controversial ending (which led to the film's CinemaScore being a dismal F).
