"Picasso Baby," Jay Z's latest single from Magna Carta... Holy Grail, is a performance in art film format. Directed by film and music video extraordinaire Mark Romanek, the nearly 11-minute visual shows the rapper talking about art, signing some posters and hanging out with art people before performing in front of some lucky fans. The film -- directed by Paul Schrader and written by Bret Easton Ellis -- is hoping to be a big draw on VOD; Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington action pic "2 Guns" enjoying solid business as it opens nationwide, while "Smurfs 2" battles family glut. Critics are divided over whether or "2 Guns" is a shot of summer adrenaline or a twisty thriller that takes one too many turns. The action thriller stars Mark Wahlberg and Denzel Washington as two undercover agents with motivations as shaky as their conflicted loyalties. Directed by Baltasar Kormakur, the Icelandic action master who previously teamed with Wahlberg on "Contraband," the film overflows with double and triple crosses interspersed with flurries of gunplay.
