“Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone,” a documentary on the creation and life of the funk-punk-rock band Fishbone is more than a simple tale about a successful band as it's truly a commentary on the social and economic movements of the past 30 years. Directed by Lev Anderson and Chris Metzler, “Everyday Sunshine” is a compelling documentary for both music and film enthusiasts. Narrated by Laurence Fishburne, its in-depth interviews with band members, friends and fellow musicians from the punk/ska scene of the late 1980’s make it so you don’t have to be a fan of Fishbone to be enthralled by their story.

Well, at least Seann William Scott and the former SCTV actor will have a pre-existing rapport/can probably reminiscence about some dick joke from "American Pie." Eugene Levy has joined the cast of Goon," the upcoming hockey comedy written by Evan Goldberg ("Superbad," "The Green Hornet") and Jay Baruchel and directed by Canadian filmmaker Michael Dowse ("Fubar," "It's All Gone Pete Tong").

While "The Machinist" has its fans, we're not too big on the film and other than making Christian Bale lose all kinds of weight, the attention foisted on that film is sort of unfounded. Anyway, for writer Scott Kosar, it made his mark in Hollywood and it looks like he's ready to make his debut in the director's chair.

Oscar season is just heating up and the latest from Peter Weir, "The Way Back," should figure prominently in the late season jockeying for awards nominations. Following the film's trailer which dropped earlier in the month, we now have a look at a poster for the film. And no, it's not earth-shaking or anything special, but it does the job of getting us to write about the movie again.

Penguins, She WroteWe have a small degree of hope that Jim Carrey's upcoming family film "Mr. Popper's Penguins" will have something of value for those of us who can now reach the kitchen sink without having to use a chair. The film already boasts a not-too-shabby cast of Carrey, Carla Gugino, Philip Baker Hall, Ophelia Lovibond, David Krumholtz, Clark Gregg, James Tupper and Andrew Stewart-Jones. Now the esteemed and totally awesome Angela Lansbury has come aboard the project.

Studio Eventually Clues Into Fact That You Don't Need New Book To Learn That Richards Was A Willful Drug AbuserA minor brouhaha arose a couple of days ago when it was suggested that aging, still-alive rocker Keith Richards might be getting snipped from the forthcoming "Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" due to "Life," the warts and all memoir by the axe-slinger hitting bookshelves this week. The book had Richards talking quite candidly about his past drug use and the rumors went that Disney brass were suddenly not comfortable with putting his worn and ragged mug in front of impressionable school children.
