"This is parkour. Internet sensation of 2004," Jim Halpert said in a great cold open from "The Office"....two seasons ago. But it seems Hollywood never knows an idea it can't try and revive and so the very brief street fighting/martial arts/whatever thing that was interesting for about two seconds nearly a decade ago, is now gonna have a new face to try and make it popular again.

" 'Prometheus' originated from a very simple question that haunted me after the first 'Alien,' and no one answered in subsequent 'Alien' films: who was the Space Jockey—the big guy in the seat?

So here's a little anecdote for you. This writer has seen the latest "The Dark Knight Rises" trailer in the theaters a few times now, and unlike the usual chattering that accompanies most movie spots, the audience has been mostly reverentially silent. Has anyone else experienced this? It's eerie and kind of cool. Either way, it's pretty clear that "The Dark Knight Rises" will be aiming to smash the $1 billion worldwide box office of its predecessor "The Dark Knight," but can Christopher Nolan's film achieve that feat?
