There is already more coverage coming out of “Cin City” than you can shake a Twizzler stick at, everything from Anthony Breznican of EW on J.J. AbramsSuper 8 to a quick dispatch by AP’s David Germain about a keynote by new MPAA chief Chris Dodd. There are also instant V-logs, like this summary from Peter Sciretta (/Film) and Steven “Frosty” Weintraub (Collider.com) of a morning Dreamworks presentation:

USA Today Adds Fourth Film Writer

When Anthony Breznican left USA Today for Entertainment Weekly, it was only a matter of time before someone stepped into his vacated slot. That person turns out to be Bryan Alexander.
