The Notable Films of 2011: Part Five

31 December 2010 5:23 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

The Factory

Opens: 2011

Cast: John Cusack, Jennifer Carpenter, Ksenia Solo, Mae Whitman, Sonya Walger

Director: Morgan O'Neill

Summary: An obsessed cop is on the trail of a serial killer prowling the streets of Buffalo, New York. When his teenage daughter disappears, he drops any pretension and professional restraint he might have to get the killer.

Analysis: Shot almost three years ago now, Dark Castle had originally planned to release this thriller back in late 2009. However for reasons unspecified, it has been sitting on a shelf for some time and keeps getting delayed. In cases like these, the most obvious reason is usually the correct one - it stinks (eg. "Case 39"). The company certainly has had its fair share of box-office duds lately including "Whiteout," "Ninja Assassin," "The Losers," "Orphan" and "Splice".

Yet Cusack generally has good taste in projects, his last venture into horror was the surprisingly effective Stephen King »

A spoiler free review of Being Human USA is out, and while they reviewed a really rough cut, they liked it. They love the chemistry between Sam Witwer and Sam Huntington. They’re shocked that Witwer doesn’t have to use his abs to carry the performance. Cautiously optimistic?

Disney has installed a command center under Cinderella’s castle. But it’s not to take over the world using singing woodland creatures. It’s to manipulate visitors to the park when it’s crowded. They’ll send characters out to long lines, or to lead parades of guests to less crowded parts of the park.

Bryan Singer Shooting Jack The Giant Killer Using Natural Light

28 December 2010 6:43 AM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Director Bryan Singer has announced that he’s planning on shooting his next movie, the 3D ‘Jack The Giant Killer,’ mainly using natural light, Cinemablend.com is reporting. While directors typically use bright light while filming 3D movies so the final result doesn’t appear dark, Singer instead plans on using the new Epic Red camera. Singer told the Red User forums that he plans on using mostly electrical lighting because “the movie is set in a time before electricity.” He added that “Epic’s extraordinary exposure latitude will allow (him) to more effectively explore the use of natural light.” However, the director didn’t confirm if he will be following in Stanley Kubrick’s footsteps when he [...] »

Bryan Singer Using Natural Light To Film Jack The Giant Killer

28 December 2010 4:01 AM, PST | Filmofilia | See recent Filmofilia news »

Jack the Giant Killer is a British fairy tale about a young brave Celtic who eliminates a number of giants during King Arthur’s reign.

In 1961, United Artists released a middle budget film produced by Edward Small and directed by Nathan H. Juran called Jack the Giant Killer. The film performed quite well at the box office.

Bryan Singer shoots a modern day fairy tale in which the ancient peace between men and giants is in danger, as a young farmer leads an expedition into the giants’ kingdom in hope of rescuing a kidnapped princess. Starring Aaron Johnson.  By all accounts the movie is kind of an adult version of the original.

Bryan Singer (X-Men, X-Men 2) is planning to use a lot of natural light instead of usual extreme studio lighting. While talking about his plans for the film he expressed happiness to using the Epic Red for this one, »

Bryan Singer Using Natural Light To Film Jack The Giant Killer

27 December 2010 5:25 PM, PST | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

One of the keys to the 3D experience is light. Because audience members are essentially wearing sunglasses while watching a 3D film, the movie typically has to compensate by making things brighter. Otherwise, everything looks dark and muddled (a la Clash of the Titans). Because of this, a lot of people are going to start questioning Bryan Singer. Bleeding Cool has learned that Singer plans on filming his next movie, Jack The Giant Killer, largely using natural light. The director will be using the new Epic Red camera and appeared on the Red User forums on Christmas Eve to deliver the message. Singer says that he's doing it because the movie is set in a time before electricity, and that the "Epic.s extraordinary exposure latitude will allow [him] to more effectively explore the use of natural light." While Singer didn't outright say that he will be using fire and »

The (Dis)comfort of 3D... Should We Get Used To It?

27 December 2010 2:58 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

More and more frequently, the content of a film, the director or the cast is becoming less of a priority. Instead, the phrase "In mind-blowing 3D" has become the tagline norm just as much as the wit on display when marketing execs decide "Slow justice is no justice" is fitting for the 2D fare. I, as should all of us, blame James Cameron.

As innocent as Cameron's effect on cinema may have been, thanks to him and Avatar, not only was it proven 3D is an alphanumeric acronym for "Show me the money!" but it also brought along the idea 3D wasn't simply a tool for less-imaginative helmers. And by the way, I think Cameron realizes this.

Would Martin Scorsese have ever said, "Why couldn't a film like Precious be in 3D? It should be," if it wasn't for Avatar? Scorsese's statement was made in early March 2010, right around the »

Bryan Singer To Shoot ‘Jack The Giant Killer’ In The Dark

27 December 2010 2:00 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Most people who go to the movies take it for granted, but light is as important a facet of cinema as the budget or the script. Without light, your movie couldn't be projected up onto the big screen. And without light on set, the cameras wouldn't be able to recognize the image in front of them. Or would they? Bryan Singer popped online recently to write a little bit about his upcoming film Jack The Giant Killer. He said he's going to shoot it in 3D using Epic Red cameras and that, because he's using that camera and the film is set before electricity, he can "more effectively explore the use of natural light." Is Singer making his Barry Lyndon? Read more after the jump. Bleeding Cool [1] unearthed this quote from Singer. Here's exactly what he had to say.

Director Bryan Singer Sheds Some Light on Jack The Giant Killer

27 December 2010 | The Daily BLAM! | See recent The Daily BLAM! news »

Director Bryan Singer recently confirmed that he's going to be undertaking a difficult filming technique for his upcoming Jack The Giant Killer by using natural lighting with an Epic Red Camera. I’m very much looking forward to using the Epic Red for my next movie Jack the Giant Killer which will be shot in, what else, 3D. The camera’s incredibly compact size and extraordinary resolution are ideal for the 3D format. But more importantly Jack the Giant Killer is my first movie set in a time before electricity. The Epic’s extraordinary exposure latitude will allow me to more effectively explore the use of natural light," said Singer. Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects) has recently done a re-write of the film's script with touch-ups by Mark Bomback (Unstoppable, Live Free or Die »

Owf’s 52 Must See Films of 2011

24 December 2010 11:00 PM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Usually around this time of the year we list maybe 10 or 20 films that we think are as absolute ‘Must See’s’ for what the next 12 months of cinema has to offer us but as the clock is ticking ever closer to midnight on 2010, we thought we would challenge ourselves a little further this time around. The question I posed to the Owf staff recently was… can Cinema in 2011 produce enough ‘Must See’ films to hit 52, which would ratio out to be just one film per week? That’s all we are hopeful for here… just one film every Friday that justifies us parting with our ever increasingly important cash in these tough economic times.

Did we manage to find 52? Kind of.

There’s certainly 52 films listed here but once we got to around 30, the whole thing became a struggle and we had to fill it out disappointingly with the usual array of over-budgeted summer spectacles, »

Dominic Pace wants Lex Luthor role in next Superman film

18 December 2010 10:44 AM, PST | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

There's been no shortage of suggestions as to who should play the new Superman in Zack Snyder's big-screen reboot.

Among the names thrown around is True Blood star Joe Manganiello, who is full of praise for the filmmaker. "He's an unbelievable director, I'm a huge fan of 300," he recently said, adding that he'd be honoured to play the Man of Steel.

Snyder has confirmed the film is a restart with no connection to any previous films, which effectively rules out bringing back Brandon Routh, star of Bryan Singer's Superman Returns.

But what about other characters such as the villain? If Snyder is starting with a clean slate, we can also reject a reappearance by Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor.

We don't know yet if Lex will be part of the story but one actor has contacted The Geek Files to put himself forward as a contender for the archvillain. »

Kevin Spacey on Reprising the Role of Lex Luthor in Superman: The Man of Steel

18 December 2010 9:54 AM, PST | Reelzchannel.com | See recent ReelzChannel news »

Even with a colossal budget of $270 million, director Bryan Singer's Superman Returns still managed to turn a profit of $120 million and was considered by many a valiant attempt to recapture the myth and magic of Richard Donner's Superman.

But, comic book movie fans have a laundry list of complaints about the movie, from Superman's (Brandon Routh) use of his powers to become a peeping tom to his super-powered love child with Lois Lane (Kate Bosworth), a character that never existed in the comic books.

For Warner Bros. (WB), the movie was likely a huge disappointment in light of the $220 million profit Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins earned the year before. Whether motivated soley by profit or with the intent of appeasing the fans, WB has decided to reboot the franchise by bringing in Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) to direct Superman: The Man of Steel.

The production gears are slowly turning on director Zack Snyder's Superman reboot; and now we have news of where principle photography will commence.

Ten Essential... Movie Superheroes

17 December 2010 2:44 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary Collinson selects his Essential Movie Superheroes...

Although the comic-book superhero was generally overlooked by the movie industry until Richard Donner’s Superman: The Movie (1978) made you believe a man could fly, Hollywood failed to capitalise on this success over the next couple of decades and a stigma soon became attached to the genre. Save for a handful of notable exceptions (Warner Bros.’ Batman franchise was successful, but we all know how that turned out once Joel Schumacher got involved), it wasn’t until the release of the X-Men and Spider-Man movies that Hollywood really started to stand up and pay attention.

These days it seems you can’t breathe for superheroes – 2010 has seen the release of Iron Man II, Kick-Ass and Jonah Hex, while the next few years will see a host of superhero movies grace the screen including Thor and X-Men: First Class in 2011 along with the likes of Captain America, »
