You've probably heard of chaos theory and a thing called the butterfly effect - a concept where the flapping of an insect's wings in a London borough causes a shed to collapse somewhere in the Australian outback. In other words, seemingly incidental events can have a knock-on effect on everything else - like that old board game, Mousetrap, where a ball falling into a bath caused a boot to kick a bucket, which eventually led to the cruel detainment of several rodents.
The concept applies even in the high-stakes, high-energy world of filmmaking, where the success of one type of movie can prompt rival studios to greenlight their own, »

Fifteen years ago Wednesday, on January 25, 2002, the adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’ novel A Walk To Remember strolled into movie theaters across the country. Starring sweet-as-candy teen pop star Mandy Moore and rising TV and film actor Shane West, the movie was an early entry in a long line of Sparks’ book-to-movie adaptations.
These romances follow a reasonably simple formula: take a heart-wrenching premise, add in some beautiful people and a stunning North Carolina-esque backdrop, be sure to incorporate some inspirational action that overcomes all adversity, and you are on the road to a Sparks success. »

A lot of mystery still surrounds the story and production of the long-awaited sequel Blade Runner 2049. Very little is known about the film and how it will connect to Ridley Scott’s original, save the return of Harrison Ford as Detective Rick Deckard. Now, however, The Terminator Fans have posted an intriguing rumour that says a Replicant from the original Blade Runner could be making an appearance via CGI.
Replicants are robots that appear human in very lifelike ways, from their skin to speech patterns, but never physically age. Terminator Fans’ sources say that thanks to the advancement of digital technology to recreate an actor’s younger appearance – such as Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator: Salvation and Terminator Genisys or more recently Peter Cushing in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story – director Denis Villeneuve and the production team will be able to recreate one of the original replicants.
