After the madness that was Comic-Con 2012, things have been a little more quiet than usual on the Limited Paper front. But don’t worry! We’re not cutting back. Truth is, we’ve just had a ton of catching-up to do here at Collider HQ: film set visits that needed to be reported, interviews to transcribe, booze-soaked canoe trips to document–there were times that it felt like our non-poster-related reporting would never end.
But today we’re back with a brand-new installment of your preferred Collider.com column, and there’s much to share. What’s Mondo doing this weekend in Kansas City? What artists are taking part in Acid-Free Gallery’s Myths and Monsters shows? Wanna know where you can get a sweet Akira poster? Any Ken Taylor fans in the audience? There’s a ton of answers waiting for you after the jump, my fellow screenprint-enthusiasts.

Sure the family gathers around and distant cousins whose name you barely remember drive from hundreds of miles away to join in the festivities. But what really brings us all together? The food. In honor of America’s most gluttonous of holidays, we’re bringing you our Top 5 favorite movie moments involving food. We tried to cover every course, except for salad (you don’t win friends with salad). So feast your eyes upon the Collider Thanksgiving Top 5 Memorable Movie Food Scenes after the jump.

With Fantastic Fest 2010 in Austin, Texas mere weeks away, the third wave of films playing the festival has been announced. Among the highlights are Darren Bousman’s thriller Mother’s Day starring Rebecca De Mornay, Guy Moshe’s Bunraku with Woody Harrelson and Josh Hartnett and Red, starring Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren and many more. Add these to the previous announcements of the World Premiere of Sharktopus, special screenings of Let Me In, Buried, Stone, I Spit on Your Grave and more, Fantastic Fest certainly sounds like it’ll live up to its name.
Hit the jump for more details on the third wave including two repertory screenings featuring Bill Pullman.
