It's not quite “Revenge of the Nerds,” but it still might make a good movie: “Attack of the Unpaid Interns.” Former interns for the 2010 movie “Black Swan” have brought a class-action lawsuit against Fox Searchlight Pictures and units of Fox Entertainment Group. They are demanding back pay, damages and a court order prohibiting the studio from using unpaid interns. A win for the plaintiffs could bring down the long-standing and widespread movie industry practice of exploiting lowly assistants who, for the sake of experience and job contacts, are willing to work for free.

On one of the busiest film nights of the year, hundreds of people at a Los Angeles movie theater complex were evacuated after fire alarms interrupted their Christmas movie viewings. The alarms went off at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard about 5:30 p.m., an employee said. By 6:20, guests were being allowed back into the theaters. “Looks like it was a false alarm,” said employee Eric Corbin. “We're still accepting purchases, and more than likely we'll be up and running in the next half hour.” Christmas Day is one of the busiest of the year for the ArcLight, where 14 theaters can seat several thousand movie-goers.

There was a time when Hollywood thought of Africa as a kind of exotic backlot, but these days it's the venue for many of the causes about which activist members of the industry feel most deeply. Over the next two weeks, in fact, the continent is getting top billing on the town's social to-do list.

It's been nearly a generation since Quentin Tarantino burst on the scene with his raucous indie film "Pulp Fiction" in 1994, and Hollywood is a very different place. The once-vibrant independent film scene that Tarantino helped shape has shrunk to a handful of players who have honed their survival skills in a harsh distribution landscape. But Tarantino is back at the Oscars this year, this time with another wonderfully incendiary piece of entertainment, "Django Unchained. " And so, as it happens, are a group of other directors from his generation of outsiders - only now they are the new Hollywood establishment.

Anyone whose artistic dreams have ever eluded them will find much to appreciate in the micro-budgeted, improv-based drama "Goodbye Promise," a simple, richly emotional look at a failed actor's introspective last days in Hollywood. "Being a good actor isn't enough in this town," rightly concludes Matt (Gregor Collins), a good-looking, 30-ish thespian who's spent much of the past decade struggling to make it. Thus, a week away from a self-prescribed, seven-year deadline for success - and with only a promising turn in an unfinished film and an elusive TV audition to hold him in L.A. - Matt opts to give up the ghost and return home to Washington, D.C. First, however, he must say goodbye to an eclectic array of actor friends plus an ex-flame (Sarah Prikryl)
