Director Peter Jackson helped push the envelope of frame rate technology by presenting The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in the high frame rate (Hfr) of 48 frames per second, double the industry standard of 24 Fps. Now it seems filmmaker James Cameron may go even further with his upcoming Avatar sequels, Avatar 2, Avatar 3 and Avatar 4 by filming at 120 frames per second.
Douglas Trumbull, who developed a 4K 3D system that is shot at 120 Fps dubbed Magi, revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that he has spoken with James Cameron's producing partner Jon Landau about using this technology on the Avatar follow-ups. Here's what Douglas Trumbull had to say about setting up a screening of his short film Utofog, which showcases the Magi technology.
"I know that Cameron admired Showscan [Trumbull's earlier invention of a large-format high-frame rate projection system] and that he is a huge advocate of high frame »

A new featurette for Exodus: Gods and Kings has come our way, giving a behind the scenes look at the expansive locations which will bring the biblical epic to life. Ridley Scott's return to the sword and sandal epic is something that has me really excited, and add the impressive cast, including Christian Bale, Aaron Paul, Joel Edgerton, Ben Kingsley, and Sigourney Weaver, to the spectacular sets, it should be nothing short of stunning. Released: December 12th USA / December 26th Ireland & UK »

After last week’s news about Netflix securing The Blacklist for a record fee, a similar story came to light this week concerning the pre Batman prequel series Gotham. Now rather than getting it day and date after Us broadcast as per Breaking Bad and From Dusk Till Dawn, Gotham’s entire run will just arrive on Netflix after it’s finished its TV broadcast. Worse news is that this means you have to wait for Channel 5 to get their finger out and schedule it on one of their three channels and then muck it around the schedule just to confuse you further and for it to finish its run there. Kind of takes the wind out the sails doesn’t it? I wouldn’t expect to see Gotham on Netflix until this time next year at best but we will see.
In better news David Wain’s relatively well »

Telling the story of Moses (Christian Bale, The Dark Knight Trilogy), the film is set to go almost head-to-head with the final Hobbit film this Christmas in the grandeur stakes, with Scott reteaming with Gladiator co-writer Steven Zaillian, as well as an eclectic supporting cast including Joel Edgerton (Warrior), Sigourney Weaver (Alien), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad), John Turturro (Barton Fink), Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises) and Sir Ben Kingsley (Iron Man 3).
So far, it certainly looks pretty epic, and with such a talented cast, it could be a big hit come winter, and you can check out the featurette below…

Visionary director Jean-Pierre Jeunet (Amelie) puts a surreally disorientating spin on the series as Sigourney Weaver's Ripley endures her fourth encounter with the nastiest xenomorphs in the universe. Here, she is resurrected by geneticists who - somewhat foolishly- have cloned her in an attempt to replicate the alien DNA that has been impregnated within her for 200 years. So when a crew of space smugglers (including Ron 'Hellboy' Perlman and a mysterious Winona Ryder) intercept the research vessel she's on, they get more than they bargained for. »
The third instalment in the terrifying sci-fi saga sees Sigourney Weaver's Ripley cast adrift once again from her homebound vessel by an alien intruder, only to crashland on a prison planet. As if sharing the cramped outpost with the human scum of the universe wasn't bad enough, it seems an even deadlier species of murderer has arrived with her... With Charles Dance's doctor her only ally, Ripley has to make peace with the convicts to stop the galaxy's least wanted prison visitor. »
The sci-fi horror yarn that spawned a host of inferior imitators and launched Sigourney Weaver as a screen icon is back digitally remastered and replete with unseen footage. Unusually for a director’s cut, Ridley Scott’s classic is now shorter than before, but that don’t let that fool you into thinking the added scenes won’t instill even more terror »
The Noah movie opened the floodgates for biblical movies at the beginning of 2014 and to some, a welcome visit back to the Golden Age of Hollywood.
With Exodus bowing at the end of the year during awards season, Scott solidifies his status among the ranks of those larger-than-life directors – David Lean, Cecil B. DeMille, William Wyler, Joseph L. Mankiewicz – in his latest historical drama.
Casting is everything and with huge stars like Oscar-winners Christian Bale and Ben Kingsley, Oscar-nominee Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton, the filmmaker may find himself at Hollywood’s big party in February. Last time Scott went epic was in May 2000 when Gladiator opened in theaters and later went on to win five Oscars, including Best Picture, at the 73rd Academy Awards. »

Ridley Scott’s Exodus: Gods and Kings has at least one sure thing going for it: Christian Bale. If you’re a little uncertain about Biblical adaptations or Joel Edgerton (The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty) as an Egyptian pharaoh, you know you can still trust in The Batman.
Bale leads an all-star cast -- Edgerton, “Breaking Bad”’s Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver (reuniting with Ridley for an Alien reunion), Ben Kingsley, and John Turturro. Featuring thousands of extras, Scott’s reimagining of the story of Moses is an ambitious project with a budget to match. It’s Ridley’s most expensive film yet – and he madePrometheus.
Interested in weird movie trivia? Well, Val Kilmer, who also played Batman, previously starred in The Prince of Egypt as Moses, and Exodus’ Ben Kingsley also played the titular character in 1995’s Moses!
Now it’s Bale’s turn.

Ridley Scott’s return to the sword and sandals epic has been a long time coming. Following the director’s seminal and indeed award-winning rendition of ancient Rome with Gladiator in 2000, Scott is planning to transition the biblical story of Moses onto the silver screen with Exodus: Gods and Kings — a feat that hasn’t been achieved for over fifty years.
And, with less than three months until its release, Yahoo Movies has published a behind-the-scenes featurette of the film, which features Scott and Arthur Max — who serves as production designer on the project — discussing the trials and tribulations of filming this most epic tale.
Undoubtedly, the focal point of Exodus: Gods and Kings is Moses’ (Christian Bale) relationship with his brother — the Pharoah Ramses, who will be embodied by Joel Edgerton. After defying Ramses and freeing over 60,000 slaves, Moses leads the former prisoners on a harrowing journey through Egypt which, »

Of all the big movies coming our way this fall, the one that looks the most potentially dicey is "Exodus: Gods And Kings," Ridley Scott's grand-scale retelling of the story of Moses. In theory, the idea of the director of "Gladiator" working with his biggest-ever budget for the first live-action take on the tale in fifty years should be an enticing one, especially with a cast including Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, Aaron Paul, Sigourney Weaver, John Turturro, Ben Mendelsohn and Ben Kingsley. But footage has underwhelmed so far, and the film's been (correctly) beset by the decision to cast mostly caucasian actors in Middle Eastern roles, including Edgerton done up in make-up that we can only describe as Clementine Face (the Australian actor has expressed sympathy with the outcry, saying in a recent interview, "I do understand and empathize with that position," presumably while simultaneously trying to wash fake »

Who ya gonna call for the best-loved blockbuster of the 80s? That would be Drs Venkman, Stantz and Spengler - aka Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis - a trio of New York university parapsychologists who go into business as ghost exterminators. And just in the nick of time, as a portal to another dimension has opened in Sigourney Weaver's fridge, leaving the city under siege from an onslaught of demons, phantoms, and other ghouls »
