Kathryn Bigelow, the ex-wife of James Cameron who won an Oscar for directing The Hurt Locker, is gearing up for another run at the Academy Awards.
The first teaser for Zero Dark Thirty (above) has hit the web and it looks intense. The military drama is all about what went down behind the scenes as Navy SEAL Team 6 searched for Osama Bin Laden.
We all know how that ended, but it should be inneresting to see how the military gathered intel and pulled off the operation which eventually took the life of America's Most Wanted.

Grab your Bible and polish your Latin, because The Excorcist is about to possess your TV!
We’re normally SCURRRED to death of remakes because but we’re excited to see Sean Durkin adapt this Best Picture nominee for the small screen.
Broader in scope than the 1973 William Friedkin film, the 10-part miniseries will focus more time and attention on the events leading up to the Regan MacNeil's possession and also how the family copes with the aftermath.
Networks are expected to start

You ever wonder why that movie you thought was REALLY good and particularly relevant to our time DIDN'T win Best Picture at the Oscars that one time (or every time). Well, a new study may have revealed an answer to that question — the majority of voters are old, white rich guys.
Out of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' 5,765 voting members, about 94% of white and 77% are male, while there are only 2% African American or 2% Latino voters.
The average age? 62! Only
