There's been a lot of talk about director Amy Berg's "West of Memphis" film ever since it debuted at this year's Sundance Film Festival, centering on the struggle to exonerate the West Memphis Three. Now it's given the chance to be shown on the big screen for the nation to see as Sony Pictures Classics scoops up the global distribution rights for the film. Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh produce the film.

"West of Memphis" focuses a great deal on Lorri Davis, the wife of Damien Echols, who was sentenced to death for the 1993 murder of three young boys in Arkansas, and their efforts to release him, along with Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr. There's no set date for the release of the new movie at the moment.

    I know I'm in the minority but I want Iron Giant to win over Lion King. I LOVE Iron Giant. Lion King is my favourite Disney animated movie but I balled like a baby watching Iron Giant. Also to the people complaining that no anime is moving on and it's all Toy Story... Miyazaki should've had a few films that moved on and Howl's Moving Castle is 1000x better than Frozen but there is a reason Pixar and Disney films are all popular, they're great and it's tough to get upset about upsets because these are all amazing films. And the Toy Story's are gonna do well because they should. There ratings on Rotten Tomatoes are 100, 100 and 99. My picks are... Iron Giant Toy Story Up Aladdin Toy Story 3 Monsters Inc. Beauty and the Beast Toy Story 2
