Fox Searchlight Pictures has inked a deal for North American and U.K. rights to BAFTA Award winner Amma Asante's Belle, inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed-race daughter of a Royal Navy admiral. The movie, directed by Amma Asante, includes Tom Wilkinson, Emily Watson, Miranda Richardson and Matthew Goode in its all-star ensemble cast. "The Sidekick", a "superhero" short film starring Rob Benedict (Supernatural), Ron Livingston and Lizzy Caplan, is heading to Comic-Con. Directed by Michael J. Weithorn (The King of Queens) and written by Benedict, The Sidekick will make its world premiere in San Diego on July 18 Hi-yo, critics! The Lone Ranger has roped in some early reviews. And, from the looks of it, Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer's Wild West shoot-'em-up didn't quite hit the bull's-eye with film reviewers. Based on the consensus thus far, The Lone Ranger may have an uphill trek ahead of it, as it's racked up a not-so-galloping 25 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. less
