It's not all ice cream and kittens today: In an interestingly timed press release, Warner Bros. just announced it's cutting 10 percent of its staff, citing "global economic situation and current business forecasts" (by which they likely mean that Christopher Nolan has not yet called them back about Batman 3). The studio will slash 200 open positions, lay off 300 workers, and outsource 300 I.T. and accounting jobs. [Variety]
