· The AMPTP has issued a clarification about its recent "let's nuke the residuals system" musings, a proposal that the Writers Guild is expected to dismiss as merely "crazy," a downgrade from yesterday's "batshit insane." [THR]

· Volkswagen, MasterCard, and Symantec will reportedly spend $40 million to jump aboard the Bourne Ultimatum brandwagon. [Variety]
· Fox wins a "quiet" (read: littered with reality junk and reruns) Thursday with So You Think You Can Dance. [THR]
· As you're well aware by now, we love nothing more than updates on the shattering™ of minor box office records: with $44.2 million, Harry Potter scores the biggest Wednesday of all time, and the fifth-best day in movie history for any day of the week. [Variety]
