Screening Gotham: Will Power at the Waldorf

Some of today's movie news of note from around New York:

--Reports from the last weekend's Will Smith tribute gala at the Waldorf-Astoria are in, and the major discoveries thus far seem to be: 1) Smith has developed some gray hair, 2) Tom Cruise is sorry he couldn't make it and 3) two Jadas might be one too many.

--As the 100,000th employee to flee a Weinstein operation in wordless terror, longtime Miramax/TWC associate Charles Layton receives $10 in cab fare to haul his belongings away -- one dollar for every year spent at Harvey and Bob's sides. The Reeler wishes him luck and happy therapy!

--The Film Society of Lincoln Center is joining the Oscar campaign for paying tribute to Alan Arkin with a special clip show/Q&A/screening of Little Miss Sunshine set for Dec. 19. Tickets are $50 ($40 for members) and can be found here.

--ScreenGrab's Bilge Ebiri not only sat through Jacques Rivette's 13-hour tortoise race Out 1, but found a few more hours to write about it. (Look for Reeler contributor Aaron Hillis' own Out 1 chronicles right here later this week as the Museum of the Moving Image prepares the film's US premiere.)

--Memo from your friendly beverage packager: Never mind Happy Feet -- our days of killing and maiming birds and other wildlife are over!
