Let the art market roar. Norwegian painter Edvard Munch became the most expensive artist at auction Wednesday when his 1895 pastel of a terrified man clutching his cheeks along an Oslo fjord, “The Scream,” sold for $119.9 million at Sotheby’s—the most ever paid for a work of art at auction.
The purchase surpasses the $106.5 million spent two years ago for Pablo Picasso’s 1932 portrait of his mistress, “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust,” as well as Alberto Giacometti’s earlier record of $104.3 million for his 1960 spindly bronze sculpture, “Walking Man I.” Continue reading

As far as long-running British pop-culture franchises go, Doctor Who and James Bond are almost twins: The Bond films launched a year before the first Who season. So it sorta makes sense that, for the most recent 007 flick, the director is turning to Who for inspiration.
Director Sam Mendes, who’s calling the shots on Daniel Craig’s third outing as Bond, Skyfall, is a Brit with some experience in geekery—aside from shooting the Oscar-winning American Beauty, he also made the comic adaptation Road to Perdition and was developing Vertigo’s Preacher for a good long while.

With just days to go until its U. S. release, The Avengers is already set to be one of the biggest movies in the history of ever, which means it also has the potential to be a springboard for loads of other still-developing Marvel projects. Will the success of The Avengers mean characters like Ant-Man and Doctor Strange will finally hit the big screen?
Kevin Feige’s been a part of the Marvel Movie Universe for more than a decade, and he’s been the driving force of production since the days of Iron Man. No one can dispute Feige’s gobsmacking success at this point, but even he admits there were people in Hollywood who thought his ambitious slate of superhero films was downright crazy.

It’s been almost two year since Lost left us after six hugely successful seasons and one thoroughly divisive ending. Co-creator and co-showrunner Damon Lindelof has moved on to even bigger projects, including Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, but he’s not convinced the show is gone for good, even if he’s not the one who’ll bring it back.
Speaking this week at Variety’s Entertainment & Technology Summit, Lindelof talked about his Twitter account and again made his case for why Prometheus isn’t a prequel to Alien. Then Lost came up, and Lindelof said he’s fairly certain we’re destined to see more of that island someday. Continue reading
