The easy part for producer Cathy Konrad and writer and director James Mangold was hooking up professionally during the filming of the 1997 thriller "Cop Land," their first joint project. Much more challenging was the development of their own romance, a high-risk drama that unfolded behind the scenes during the film's production.

The Wolverine 20th Century Fox, $29.98; Blu-ray, $39.99/$49.99 Available on VOD beginning Dec. 17 Wolverine's tedious origin story having been gotten out of the way in 2009, last summer's sequel gives the fast-healing, claw-wielding mutant more interesting things to do. Based on one of the most popular Wolverine comics arcs - after the surly X-Man's adventures in Japan, where he falls in love and finds a new ally - "The Wolverine" makes...

To the list of standard truisms advanced by Hollywood movies - money can't buy happiness, beauty doesn't ensure love - "The Wolverine" is eager to add another certainty: comic book heroes are forever grumbling about their lot in life. One might think that having superpowers or at least extraordinary abilities would make a person cheerful if not downright happy. But no, the stalwarts of the Marvel universe like Spider-Man and the Hulk are always moping around letting us know that nobody knows the trouble they've seen.

The most illuminating part of Susan King's article about the remake of "3:10 to Yuma" ["A Western Finally Rides Into the Sunset," Sept. 6] was her reporting of the difficulty James Mangold and Cathy Konrad had in finding a distributor. You would think that a proven director such as Mangold wouldn't have such a hard time getting this movie into theaters.

"I begged for the role tooth and nail," actress Ginnifer Goodwin recalled. Goodwin, 27, was talking about playing the part of Vivian Liberto in "Walk the Line," James Mangold's biographical portrait of Johnny Cash, starring Joaquin Phoenix. Vivian was the first wife of the Man in Black. During their 13-year marriage, she stayed at home and cared for their four daughters as her husband abused drugs and fell in love with singer June Carter (Reese Witherspoon). The movie opens Nov. 18.

Call it the most expensive cross-genre experiment in the history of Hollywood. The new Tom Cruise-Cameron Diaz film — perhaps the world's first screwball-comedy, action-romance, Hitchcock-homage, family-drama paranoid-thriller — went through so many script versions that even the writers who worked on earlier drafts may not recognize much about the final film. It has changed names (it was originally titled "Wichita," then "Trouble Man," then "Knight and Day"), stars (Eva Mendes and Chris Tucker were supposed to play the leads before Cruise and Diaz signed on)

Sylvester Stallone is having a problem with his waist. It's too trim. Too trim at least, for the shirt bagging up around his pants' 31-inch waistline, as a photographer snaps the star and his latest director, James Mangold. Stallone's slim physique seems doubly miraculous for a man of 51: a year ago, he gained and lost nearly 40 pounds to play Freddy Heflin, a chubby, ineffectual sheriff in Mangold's drama "Cop Land," which opens Friday.

The Bible says the last shall be first, but does the first have to be last? "3:10 to Yuma" was the first of this fall's remarkable crop of fine films, but it has almost gotten lost in the succeeding shuffle. Which is too bad, because this remake of the 1957 classic should not be missed. The formidable Russell Crowe stars as a charismatic outlaw and Christian Bale plays the downtrodden rancher who crosses his path.
