We've received a rumor that the second trailer may play in front of Spy Kids 2, due in U.S. theaters on August 7 and U.K. theaters on August 9. This is very much a rumor, but it does make a lot of sense, as Spy Kids is a kids movie that also has adult appeal (albeit...just some...), and the timing seems to be aboutContinued...

Japan Today reports that a Chinese student was arrested on Thursday on suspicion of selling pirated DVDs of the hit movie Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.
