Articles and interviews include director P.J. Hogan answering how a director can shift from a Julia Roberts comedy to a live-action version of Peter Pan. Past Quentin Tarantino collaborators Bruce Willis and John Travolta want to know what the Hollywood maverick's plans are post-Kill Bill. Make-believe columnist Miss Average Midwest declares her love for the trash musical From Justin to Kelly. The forces behind the women's drama Calendar Girls, director Nigel Cole and real-life calendar girl Angela Baker, discuss the true meaning of charity. There are columns on a limited-edition photo book celebrating the Bill Murray romance Lost in Translation and a recent nine-DVD package on the gooey Alien monster.
