This just in from the AFI Dallas International Film Festival folks: Today, they've made available on the Web site 75 more tickets for Friday's 1 p.m. screening of Barry Levinson's adaptation of producer Art Linson's book What Just Happened?, for which Linson also penned the screenplay. And, yes, there is a Thursday-night screening, at 7:30, as well -- both will be at the Inwood Theater -- and, yes, attending the Thursday screening will be Levinson, Linson and co-producer Todd Wagner for a chat after the debut of the new cut of the film, which premiered at Sundance in January. But the Friday screening is the one Robert De Niro will attend, for the post-screening Q&A session. Those looking to avoid the rush line might also be wise to check in with the AFI ticket office in Victory Park. --Robert Wilonsky
