Blockbuster season stars earlier and earlier every year.  For example, 2011’s first big-budget sci-fi action/adventure franchise adventure I Am Number Four arrives on President’s Day weekend.  I interview the director of the movie, D.J. Caruso, over at Film Journal.

Also, if there are still tickets available, Brooklyn residents should try making their way to BAM tonight for a special screening of Gregg Araki’s new film Kaboom, a silly, winning comedy about a couple of college kids that may or may not be able to prevent the end of the world.  I spoke with Araki for this short piece in The Brooklyn Paper. A full review of Kaboom will be coming later today.
