Question of the Day
So what about the fourth installment of the shape shifting-robot franchise?
“I know that they’re going to work their best to make the best movie that they can, and I know there’s a lot of talented people involved,” he said. “I’m quite happy with who they cast. And I think they’re going to kill it, really. I think it’ll be an awesome movie.”

RADCLIFFE’S DARLING DEAL
Deals keep coming at the Sundance Film Festival. The latest: Daniel Radcliffe’s “Kill Your Darlings,” which has the festival buzzing over the “Harry Potter” star’s explicit gay love scene.
The film has been picked up by Sony Pictures Classics for distribution in the United States and a handful of other territories.
Directed by John Krokidas, the film features Radcliffe as young Allen Ginsberg in a dark story of desire and murder involving him and fellow future beat writers Jack Kerouac and William S. Burroughs.
The film co-stars Dane DeHaan, Ben Foster, Jack Huston, Michael C. Hall and Elizabeth Olsen.
AN ANXIOUS RETURN TO PARK CITY
Kevin Pearce had mixed feelings about a return trip to Sundance. A top contender for the U.S. snowboarding team at the 2010 Winter Olympics, Pearce sustained a serious brain injury while training in Park City on New Year’s Eve in 2009.
Director Lucy Walker’s documentary “The Crash Reel,” which premiered at Sundance this year, chronicles Pearce’s long recovery and his attempts to get back into snowboarding.
This wasn’t Pearce’s first trip back to Park City. He also attended Sundance last year and felt anxious about returning to town.
