New Line's Fall from Grace

Old news by now, but New Line Cinema has been swallowed by the leviathan Warner Bros. Only three short years after capping off the three biggest movies of the millenium (the insta-classic Lord of the Rings trio), the once revered studio departs; Not with a bang, but with a whimper, in the release of another Will Farrell movie, "Semi-Pro", which isn't even semi-good.
One silver lining which may become of this otherwise sad event, being the possible (I'm hopeful) abortion of the speculated LotR prequel, "The Hobbit". Why risk tainting an otherwise perfect trilogy anyways?($) ;-)
Speaking of which, Awards Daily examines the marketing of the up-flopping "Indiana Jones" pic.
