Sales for Hollywood studios in 2010 may fall below 2009's record $10.6 billion, unless films opening between Thanksgiving and New Year's, which is the second most lucrative period after summer with 20 percent of annual sales, draw big audiences.

    Nearly a year after Gavin Smith disappeared, police have finally found a clue in the case of the missing 20th-Century Fox executive—and all signs point to murder. Smith’s case has been handed over to homicide detectives after his car was found on February 21 in a Simi Valley storage facility connected to a convicted drug dealer named John Creech.
