There are rumors saying that Angelina is too old for this new production and the producer Graham King wants to revitalize the story and create “daring new adventures for the young and dynamic Lara Croft”.
So without Angelina Jolie young actresses like Megan Fox, Olivia Wilde or Vanessa Hudgens might be an options for producers.

Who Should Be The New Lara Croft?

Movie rental application on Facebook : partnership with Warner Bros

    If somehow you thought Facebook has no more news for his users you were wrong. The movie studio Warner Bros had a great idea. Taking advantage of the social network growing popularity, the American movie producer launched an application that allow users to rent or watch movies on Facebook. At the moment the application is still in test period, but shortly it will be fully available.

How does it works?

Well it’s actually simple: you search for a movie fan page on Facebook, you go there and you click “rent” or “watch” icon. For 30 credits or $3 you can rent the movie for a 48 hours period. This application it’s only available for the people from U.S.
    The movie is going to be streamed through a Facebook application and the user will be able to watch it full screen and also paused or stopped.

Also in the 48 hours, you can replay the movie as many times as you like. The first movie to be available in the test program is The Dark Knight, but other releases promised in months ahead. The official Dark Knight fan page has reached a number of 4 million likes on Tuesday afternoon. Warner Bros didn’t make any comments about the movie costs. President of Warner Bros.

    Analyst Ingrid Chung expressed her opinion in a research note: “Facebook represents a new potential entrant that few in the investment community were concerned with prior to this announcement.”

Rango Movie Review – Watch Johnny Depp’s New Film

Rango is a chameleon who always dreamed of becoming a hero like in the movies. When he wakes up in the position to save a town from the wild west he realizes that he can prove everyone that he is really brave.(Rango’s voice is assured by Johnny Depp)

In Rango cliches and stereotypes are mixed togheter and are added colorful dialogues.By the multitude of characters is trying to portray the fierce bandit type, the corrupt mayor, the gunmen scary, big-eyed and naive child , but with smart lines, tough women, which added more “specific” realities of their furry, winged or crawling. Outrageousness surpasses  the typology in order not to stay in the mind with some chameleons that are not distinguishable from each other through specific behavior.

Dirt city seems a character itself. Artist’s vision “Crash” McCreery brought something new into the look of classic western town.From distance, Dirt city looks like a typical western city, but when you get closer you see that everything is made from sticks of candy bars, cans of petrol, old tires, bottles.
Depp had a chance to tell a little about the character which gives life in animated film Rango.Rango

Johnny Depp – an ordinary chamelon

The collaboration between Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinski started with the films in the series “Pirates of the Caribbean”. When he was asked if are any similarity between Captain Sparrow and Rango, Johnny Depp said that he has always had an affinity for lizards.

Depp added that when he played the role of “Jack Sparrow” in the movies “Pirates of the Caribbean and he had to run, that run was inspired from a scene that he saw it live with a lizard that ran on the water.Since than every time when Captain Jack had to ran in the scene he thought and felt like a lizard.Johnny Depp thinks that Gore had in mind that ran of the lizard, which helped to create this character.

Rango project is made up by the producer John B. Carls (Open Season), Graham King (The Departed), Verbinski as director and screenwriter, with James Ward Byrkit (who was a concept consultant to the series Pirates of the Caribbean) and John Logan (writter of dramatic films such as Gladiator, The Last Samurai, The Aviator, Sweeney Todd, and future Coriolanus, Hugo Cabret and the next James Bond). Mark “Crash” McCreery, the genius creator of special visual effects, creatures responsible for the series “Pirates of the Caribbean” but also of Jurassic Park and Terminator 2,joined later the team.

Obama unveils plan for $ 50 billion for infrastructure

Spend or not spend, that is the question. Philosophical, and above all political. On Monday, Barack Obama has chosen the first option, announcing the day of Labor Day (Labor Day), a plan to allocate at least 50 billion dollars in road, air and rail.

The goal is obviously to create jobs while the unemployment rate has stagnated at 9.6%, desperately despite latest figures less bad than expected in private last week, and popular discontent rises. Problem for the President, within two months of the midterm elections, Republicans will do everything to thwart his plans and maximize their chances of winning the House of Representatives on November 2. Worse for Democrats, some pollsters are even considering a takeover of the Senate, one third of the seats are at stake

Republicans against a 2nd stimulus

The plan, spread over six years, includes the construction and renovation of roads (240,000 km) of railways (6,400 km) and 240 km of runways. Given the state of America’s infrastructure, it would not hurt.

Republicans immediately lambasted the plan. With their rise in the polls, they have every incentive to drag things. The Representative Eric Cantor, a rising party, denounced “a stimulus of more” after a first effort of 800 billion dollars in 2009. Repeating the classic conservative mantra, he calls out “immediately reduce spending” and “lower taxes” to “relieve the private sector and creating jobs.” John Boehner, who would become the boss of the House if the Republicans win, had recently called Obama “fired” his entire economic team, Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner at the top.

A Nobel economics calls for spending more

Obama does not allow himself to do. In poorly in the polls, he tried on Monday to refresh the memory of voters. “The Republicans think you are amnesic. They forget that it was they who got us into this situation, “he said in the stricken town of Milwaukee.

Others call finally outright to spend more. In the columns of The New York Times, the Nobel Economics Paul Krugman laments the reluctance of Obama during his first 18 months at the helm. “His recovery program was not ambitious enough and was stopped too early,” said he. And to compare the situation to that of massive spending salutary 1938. The only difference at the time, the 2nd World War had passed the pill.

Between debt crisis and lack of credit

The annual report of the Governor of the Bank of Italy is usually the more cautious economic public document, whose topics are selected and measured with almost the precision of sling used for weighing gold and gemstones. The attempt to bring it into many of the lowest common denominator has been designed to support the recent move of budget cuts is a bit ‘provincial and limited. Rather we should share the concern of the governor at the widespread corruption, lawlessness not only for tax and the failure to reorganize the public administration.
In our view, however, disagree Mario Draghi has some major weaknesses that would require more study. Immediately evident that he repeated several times that “central banks have provided liquidity to an extent unprecedented in both the case of Lehman Brothers in the most recent euro. “The exceptional expansion of liquidity measures have avoided a systemic crisis,” he recalled.

But this liquidity is going to cover, inter alia, “deficits and public debts have risen dramatically.” For the euro area, “the massive creation of debt, in a phase where it is due on the outstanding amount of bank bonds markets has suddenly increased the risk premium on a number of sovereign debtors,” said Draghi, highlighting this great and grave concerns that plagued all the heads of institutions of governance and control of the economy and finance.
The public debt of the euro countries, which will come to an end in 2010, to 540 billion euros, to which you are adding new debt for a total of almost 930 billion of new issues. In 2010 Italy will have to repay 250 billion for licenses. Then 192 in 2011 and 168 in 2012. Repay, as noted, means simply issue new securities to replace the old ones. The problem is finding buyers willing to buy at a fair interest rate and not punitive.
In addition to the growing problem of sovereign debt, emerging strong competition among banks to win European and American institutional buyers of bonds. According to some estimates, about 40% of the 2,000 billion dollars of large U.S. funds consists of 16 major titles of European banks. Draghi also said that with the onset of the Greek crisis, severe liquidity strains in the interbank market have returned and the operation is focused on the short term. ” Currently, U.S. investors for roughly $ 500 billion in short-term credit operations of European banks.

The wind is changing and some U.S. funds are beginning to withdraw their funding from Europe. It is not only financial game of geopolitics, but employees are decisions by the situation in U.S. debt. An example is given by the recent request of the insurance giant American national interest, real estate, Fannie Mae, new emergency aid to 8.4 billion dollars. Fannie Mae, which was saved from bankruptcy in 2008 with public funds, the portfolio has 3 trillion in mortgages whose value is deteriorating. He recorded 11.5 billion loss in the first quarter 2010. Its total losses accumulated by the explosion of subprime is 145 billion. Almost half the GDP of Greece, for instance.
Albeit quietly, Draghi warned that “banks must be prepared to face even prolonged and recurrent periods of market anomalies.” After recent experiences, it would be irresponsible to leave the market the magic task of responding to this emergency. Therefore become extremely urgent agreements between states and governments of the G-20 to prepare a new governance and new rules on finance in the dragons has stood up as president of the Financial Stability Board.
Facing then, with regard to our country, the core of the relationship between the economic recovery and access to credit and solvency of small and medium enterprises, the governor reported that “credit companies was down 3.7% in December 2009 compared to September, because of year. ” Percentages, the main decrease was recorded for more industries than the North already a tight access to credit in the South. Signs of improvement have been swept away by the euro crisis.
As is clear from the report of the Bank of Italy, “the recession worsens the liquidity of bank loans and credit losses in 2009 of the five largest Italian banking groups accounted for almost 70% of operating profit.” Despite the recent financial aid package EU, the ECB estimates, optimistically, that European banks will face write-downs suffering credit equal to 187 billion between now and end 2011. During the same period the same banks will compete in European and EU countries because “it will thicken deadlines for significant amounts of bank bonds.
In this race of governments and banks to finance their securities, SMEs, the engine only with the resumption of productive work, could be closed taps credit. It would be naive to rely only on a newfound willingness of banks.

We believe the government’s emergency operational plan of Deposits and Loans Fund to create a special fund to finance long term projects and technologically advanced of Italian small and medium industry. SMEs are the only camel working. It can withstand long drought, but he died without water!

Economists can not predict

The ponytail that had made such a stir among the Swedes when they handed the Nobel Prize in 2002 no longer exists. There remain a few silver rings, a medallion of Adam Smith’s neck, the desire to understand the origins of the crisis and the passion to explain. Yesterday, Vernon Smith, who makes his students read Smith (Adam) and David Hume held a dialogue with the editors of Il Sole 24 Ore on issues related to the crisis of the state and the market (in the afternoon will be available the recording of the forum).
The American Nobel laureate, 83, always uses laboratory experiments to test the truth of economics. “We learned about the crisis day by day – debuted -. Economists, despite not having foreseen the tragedy of the situation, they did a good job because they have adapted to events: we have become experts in experiments. Without forgetting the lessons that come from history. Between 1922 and 1926, recorded an increase in costs to buy homes, to reach the minimum close to the outbreak of the Great Depression, the same situation just before the current crisis. But still to be deciphered in its complexity.
He could foresee the crisis? We were careless or was a new event so as not to be deciphered?
This crisis was not foreseeable, is part of the nature of bubbles, which are also unpredictable. People leave sucked into a kind of expectation continues that feeds itself on prices increasing: it was always like that in centuries past. The crisis is not sustainable will come to an end, although we do not know the times. We understand the rules in the stock market: the bubbles hurt investors and, therefore, banks and other stakeholders. You can not predict the bubble, but to protect those who participate in the market, you should limit the damage.
What will happen to the euro?
For some ‘time I thought that the decline of the dollar could not last and that there would be a reversal in the ratio dollar / euro, not because the U.S. economy was going well, but because I thought the Europeans had learned how not doing things the wrong way.
