The Art of the Steal

Now Playing Synopsis: An art thief-turned-motorcycle daredevil pulls his old crew back together for one last heist in this caper film from writer/director Jonathan Sobol (A Beginner's Guide to Endings). Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell) has a reputation for big stunts, and hard landings. Now that years of motorbike mishaps have taken their toll on the aging Crunch, he is tempted back into a life of crime in order to make a buck. Unfortunately, Crunch isn't the best when it comes to choosing his criminal cohorts, and he winds up in prison after being double-crossed by his scheming half-brother Nicky (Matt Dillon). His retirement fund depleted by the time he's released, Crunch sets his sights on one last score that will set him up for life. The mission: Assemble a team, steal the Guttenberg Bible, replace it with a counterfeit, and collect a cool $20 million. With his apprentice Francie (Jay Baruchel), the well-connected Paddy Kenneth Walsh, expert forger Guy (Chris Diamantopoulos), and idea man Nicky by his side, Crunch begins preparations for the job he'll be remembered for. The heist hits the skids, however, when untrustworthy Nicky resorts to his old tricks. But this time Crunch is ready, and as their partnership dissolves he prepares to pull out his ace in the hole. Terence Stamp and Katheryn Winnick co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon, Terence Stamp, Jay Baruchel Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Hog farmers face dire straits

SPRINGFIELD, S.C. -- A worn, faded sticker on Charles Ray Brown's office door reads: "Run over chicken. Promote pork." It's a tongue-in-cheek slogan he has recited for 47 years -- until last December. For the first time since 1951, the farm that in its heyday held nearly 300 sows and thousands of piglets was barren, save for one 6-month-old top hog that will be butchered this week. Like most animals raised for slaughter, it doesn't have a name, but if asked, Mr. Brown calls her "Sausage."
