There's a documentary about Hanson?

"Strong Enough to Break" is a new documentary about the trials and tribulations of the band Hanson and the wacked out music industry. Here's a synopsis.
They went from MMMBop to nearly MMMdropped off the face of the earth after some record company shennanigans. But Issac, Taylor and Zac were just some talented kids with an impeccable commercial track record who wanted to make good music. Check out the first 8 minutes of this documentary, an Ifilm exclusive, which documents them making demos, battling the suits and eventually crawling from the wreckage. (And watch for cameos from Third Eye Blind's Stephen Jenkins and Matthew Sweet, among others.) An amazing look at an industry that likes to eat its young and three plucky lads who didn't want to be anybody's lunch.

Watch the first 8 minutes of the documentary by following the link below.

Cool move from Will Smith

Will is filming a movie about a former homeless man from San Francisco (Chris Gardner, pictured above) that climbed up to become a millionare stockbrocker. To fill the roles of extras, the producers are hiring actual homeless people, both giving the movie authenticity and doint their part to give back to the community. Pretty darn cool.
