What is Page 2? Page 2 is a compilation of stories and news tidbits, which for whatever reason, didn't make the front page of /Film. After the jump we've included 30 different items, fun images, videos, casting tidbits, articles of interest and more. It's like a mystery grab bag of movie web related goodness. If you have any interesting items that we might've missed that you think should go in /Film's Page 2 – email us!

Stanley Kubrick even obsessed about his cardboard boxs. [firebailed]

Christian Bale responded to criticism he's received for his trademark weight loss and gains in The Fighter and his previous movies. [dailymail]

"To be honest, I find it laughable that it's considered to be some f****** gimmick – it's so patronizing. For God's sake, do people not understand what a pain it is to do? It's as though it's some comment about, 'Oh it's easy for him, because he's done it a bunch of times.' It's not easy, it's not fun – it's horrible. I would never pick to do that, but it's a part that I like and he's a welterweight and he's a crackhead. I don't know about you, but I've never seen a welterweight with any fat on him – or a crackhead. So it's just what you end up having to do. Somebody told me that somebody wrote something about my "trademark weight loss". I'd just like to p*** on that guy's shoes."

This Imperial AT-AT Walker is made from recycled computer parts and other scrap metal materials. [laughingsquid]
