They found a lifetime’s worth in the process. Hooper and Zucconi had just met in Manhattan a week before, but with a

As Batman said in The Dark Knight Rises, “A hero can be anyone, even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a small boy’s shoulder to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.” Premiere on Film Row is celebrating comic book superheroes, police, firemen and everyday heroes alike

It has its share of creepy moments — some of which might just stay with you long after you’ve left the dark of the theater — but first you have to digest some hard-to-swallow notions.

The Lunchbox

Lunch, to be exact. The situation stems from a rare mix-up in Mumbai’s otherwise-acclaimed system of couriers who deliver lunches to office workers. One such meal, a flavorful concoction lovingly prepared by Ila (Nimrat Kaur), is expected to grab the attention (and maybe heat up the loins) of the woman’s neglectful husband. But the lunch

Darkened tones

American alt-metal act Chevelle is facing some interesting conundrums as it releases La Gárgola, the trio’s seventh studio album. You might even call it a life-or-death scenario. “We’re not sure if we are going to be the ones being killed or the ones killing,” drummer Sam Loeffler said of the short horror film they are
