Your Day in Pop Culture (Friday, May 31, 2013)

This Day in Pop Culture History
1790: The United States enacts the Copyright Act of 1790. We realize the irony in celebrating the first copyright act on the Internet. Go back to your Napstering.
1929: The Karnival Kid, the Mickey Mouse cartoon where he talks, is released. Please go watch it. It's fantastic. The Mickey Mouse that most people know now is the corporate version. He spanks a hot dog in this short.

In Theaters This Weekend
Now You See Me: Anyone else curious to see what the secret of Now You See Me is? Is it real magic? Great illusions? Morgan Freeman sneaking penguins in?
The East: Brit Marling in her biggest film yet. She's going to be a star, so jump on the bandwagon now.
The Kings of Summer: This indie flick has been getting some interesting buzz. Hard to go wrong with both Alison and Nick Offerman.
After Earth: THIS MOVIE IS DIRECTED BY M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN. The studio is doing everything possible to make sure you don't know that it is, but this is your warning.
