Hey, New Yorkers, do you like nachos and beer with your movies, but not texting or talking? Well, guess what, famed Austin cinematic temple the Alamo Drafthouse is coming to Manhattan, taking over the Metro Theater at 2626 Broadway. It will open in 2013. [STYD]

Beyoncé is now conquering Tumblr and posted that image above of herself dressed up as Spider-Man. Umm....yes, please. Can we get this forwarded to Sony and a petition started? Thanks. [Phenomenaut Aerospace]

Sorry McG, Arnold Schwarzenegger also thought "Terminator Salvation" was a turd, saying recently, "...the last one was awful. It tried hard, not that they didn’t try, the acting and everything. It missed the boat.” [Collider]

Shaquille O'Neal explains why he did "Kazaam": "I was a medium-level juvenile delinquent from Newark who always dreamed about doing a movie. Someone said, 'Hey, here's $7 million, come in and do this genie movie.'What am I going to say, no? So I did it." [GQ]

Did you know Willem Dafoe was cast in Michael Cimino's famous flop "Heaven's Gate"? Yeah, we had no idea either, but he recently discussed his experience on the film with the AV Club: "Well, all of a sudden, my small role becomes huge. I’m only supposed to be there for a couple weeks here, a break, then a couple weeks, and then I’m done. So I walk away from [theater group] The Wooster Group, saying, 'Excuse me, I’ll be back in a couple weeks.' And I get there, and they rip up my contract and say, 'Baby, you’re here.' So I call home and say,'“Hey. [Laughs.] I don’t know…' And they’re like, 'What are you doing? You said you were gonna…' I said, 'It’s changed.' And they said, 'Okay, we’ll wait for you.' Well, it ended up being three months. And it could’ve been eight if I hadn’t been fired, but I was fired one day because we were sitting in a lighting setup, and someone told me a joke. I laughed. Cimino, in a very agitated state, at this point—previous to that, I got along with him great—he turned around, told me to step out, and they put me on a plane. Last laugh, maybe?"

Lastly, here's the trailer for "Wall Writers: Graffiti In It's Innocence," a documentary about graffitti narrated by John Waters. [Gothamist
