The dollar was mixed today against most currencies, though it was clawing back gains against the euro as more investors ran away from riskier bets.

The Dollar Index ( DXY), which compares the greenback to a basket of six other currencies, was up 0.1% to 80.54.

PowerShares DB US Dollar Index Bullish ( UUP) was gaining 0.3% in the afternoon. On the flipside, PowerShares DB US Dollar Index Bearish ( UDN) was losing 0.3%.

CurrencyShares British Pound Sterling ( FXB) was sliding 0.9%. CurrencyShares Euro ( FXE) was losing 0.4%.

CurrencyShares Japanese Yen ( FXY) was gaining 0.4%.

In Multiplex Index news, though the dollar has been on a roller coaster, it looks like today's destinations for catching a movie are either Tokyo or Singapore, as those currencies came right back to their positions at our last check in.

You'll also have some movie-going choices. According to The Hollywood Reporter, somehow the number one international flick was Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.

If you want to see a cartoon, just not one with a sloth that speaks with a lisp, why not stick with the yen, go to Tokyo and take a try on anime. The country's number one film over the weekend was a domestic offering -- Evangelion: 2.0 You Are Not Alone. The film is part two of the Rebuild of Evangelion series, which itself was based on a big anime series called Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I have no idea what any of that means, so it must be good, right?
