Day By Day

The last seven anti-American, anti-war films have tanked, so what do the Hollywood execs do? They greenlight half a dozen more of them.

First there will be the "Blackline" trilogy -- a series of films based loosely on Blackwater Corporation. Guess who the villains will be? (Read about it here.)

Then there will be this:

“Traitor”: Don Cheadle (“Oceans Thirteen,” “Hotel Rwanda”) portrays a CIA operative working undercover with a terrorist group who mixes it up with an FBI agent played by Guy Pearce (“L.A. Confidential”).

and this,

“Stop-Loss”: Ryan Phillippe stars as a decorated Iraq war hero who resists being forced back to Baghdad under the military’s stop-loss process.

and this,

“S.O.P.: Standard Operating Procedure”: This documentary by Oscar winner Errol Morris (“The Fog of War”) focuses on Abu Ghraib, based on 200 hours of interviews with soldiers and prisoners.

and this,

“Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden?”: “Super Size Me” director Morgan Spurlock is keeping a tight lid on his doc about the search for the world’s most infamous terrorist. Execs who saw early footage had to sign a “shocking” nondisclosure agreement.
