Detroit Will Pay You To Take A House. The Catch? The House Is In Detroit.

News in the house Detroit Mayor Dave Bing -- who recently <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2011/02/detroit-mayor-shoots-down-robocop-statue">tweeted</a> that there won't be a RoboCop statue in Detroit, only to see people <a href="http://filmdrunk.uproxx.com/2011/02/detroits-robocop-statue-reaches-fund-raising-goal">raise the funds</a> for it anyway -- has come up with a better tactic to lure people back to the city.

TRON:Legacy Behind The Scenes, 15 Minutes Of Olivia Wilde Flirting

So, I'm not too sure if anyone has heard about this upcoming movie called <a href="http://www.uproxx.com/gammasquad/2010/11/wanna-see-more-of-tron-legacy">TRON:Legacy</a>, set to release on December 17th, but I think it's about high school techno raves or something -possibly it's got that guy from Facebook in it, maybe- maybe not.

Blockbuster’s Borderline Bankrupt

By | 25 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/08/blockbusters-borderline-bankrupt"> I couldn't tell you the last time I walked into a Blockbuster to rent a movie. And it probably doesn't help their cause that I still have unreturned VHS copies of Rosewood, Big Daddy & Get On The Bus sitting in a box in the garage. Did I cause the company to go broke, as the one-time video giant's rumored to be on the brink of <a href="http://widget.uproxx.com/b/52/http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118023404.html">filing Chapter 11 bankruptcy</a>.
