Watch: New Beverly Cinema Doc 'Out of Print' Trailer About 35mm

1 hour ago | | See recent news »

"The New Beverly crowds are genuine, they're there just to love cinema." How do we save 35mm film? By cherishing it, archiving it, and reminding the world of its existence with screenings and events that herald the soon-to-be-long-lost-format. One of the latest documentaries about this technological evolution is titled Out of Print, a film two years in the making from New Beverly's Julia Marchese. The doc focuses on the New Beverly Cinema in Los Angeles and the many people who make it their home. She has interviews with people like Edgar Wright, Patton Oswalt, Rian Johnson, Joe Carnahan, Kevin Smith, Joe Dante and so many others. The first trailer is out and it's all about a love for cinema, its many joys, and repertory theaters. Here's the first trailer for Julia Marchese's documentary Out of Print, from YouTube (via SlashFilm): A documentary exploring the importance of revival cinema »

Spit-Balling What the 2014 Toronto Film Festival Lineup Could Look Like

21 July 2014 4:12 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Tomorrow morning, July 22, at approximately 7 Am Pst the first wave of 2014 Toronto Film Festival titles will be announced and I'm having a hard time trying to figure out just what exactly to expect. First of all, we already know David Fincher's Gone Girl is premiering at the New York Film Festival as is Paul Thomas Anderson's Inherent Vice. So scratch those two off the board. Then there's Birdman, which will open the Venice Film Festival and close New York and expectation is it will also show up in Telluride, which takes place just before Toronto... will Fox Searchlight go for all threec Or better yet, will they go for the new rules laid down by Toronto Film Festival artistic director Cameron Baileyc In recent years the Toronto Film Festival has seen films such as Best Picture winners Slumdog Millionaire, Argo and 12 Years a Slave getting "sneak" previews at »

J.J. Abrams Shows Off an X-Wing in Latest 'Star Wars' Unicef Video

21 July 2014 6:51 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Time to meet the new X-Wing! After the rumored plot leak yesterday, along with Kevin Smith's discussion of how real his set visit was, it's time to drop an actual reveal for Star Wars: Episode VII, being directed by J.J. Abrams as we speak. This time they've revealed the X-Wing from the new movies, along with a pilot in his typical orange regalia, in the background of another charity video with J.J. Abrams for Unicef. This is kind of awesome, because it's one of those moments where everything is starting to feel like it' s coming into place. The ship looks great (old but not too old), plus it's real and actually exists and isn't just a CGI creation; I'm actually getting more and more excited the more we see. See the new video and X-Wing below. Here's the next update with J.J. Abrams for "Star Wars: Force »

Take a deep breath, nerds: J.J. Abrams has offered a first glimpse at the X-Wing starfighter set to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII. The teaser comes courtesy of a new promo video for the "Force for Change" charity campaign hosted by Omaze, which will benefit Unicef and its array of "innovative programs" aiding children in need across the globe.

‘Hellbenders’ Review

21 July 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Clifton Collins, Clancy Brown, Andre Royo, Robyn Rikoon, Macon Blair, Stephen Gevedon, Larry Fessenden, Dan Fogler | Written and Directed by J.T. Petty

Let me begin this review by stating this is most-definitely not your typical horror fare; something audiences will realise a mere five minutes into this raucous, sure-to-be-cult-hit, movie. Written and directed by J.T. Petty, who also penned the graphic novel on which this is based, Hellbenders is a genre-bending horror comedy that is most akin to Don Coscarelli’s recent movie John Dies at the End. If I had to narrow the analogy down I’d say Hellbenders is best described as The Exorcist meets Ghostbusters by way of Don Coscarelli and [early] Kevin Smith

Sound interesting? Then go out and buy it. Trust me. The rest of you? Let me try and convince you why you should spend your hard-earned cash on this little indie horror that could. »

Kevin Smiths Tusk Gets a Release Date and a New Image Sees Release

19 July 2014 12:01 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Kevin Smith fans are looking forward to Tusk no doubt about it. Smith proved very capable of approaching the genre in 2011 when he helmed the extremely dark fundamentalist terror piece Red State. To anticipate another strong horror film from the veteran filmmaker doesnt seem like a stretch especially when theres a cool concept at work and a solid cast to bring the story to life. »

I'm Still Not Over... the happy ending of the 'Justice League Unlimited' cartoon

19 July 2014 7:20 AM, PDT | - PopWatch | See recent - PopWatch news »

July 23rd is Batman Day, and I can think of no better way to celebrate 75 years of Batman stories than by looking at Justice League Unlimited’s second season finale “Epilogue”—a Batman-centric episode that honors the character’s legacy, and one that I’m still not over.

Cartoon Network had yet to renew Justice League Unlimited for a third season when “Epilogue” was written, suggesting it was intended to bring the entire DC Animated Universe—which began in 1992 with the premiere of Batman: The Animated Series—to a close. The writers decided to end the Dcau where it all started. »

Comic-Con 2014: 10 Titles Every Gamer Wants To See

18 July 2014 1:03 PM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


Back in the day the aisles of Comic-Con’s many Halls used to only be packed to the brim with the perfectly minted copies of rare issues and collector’s edition one-offs that drive comic fans from around the world to arrive in their thousands – but no more.

For better or worse, these days ‘Commycon’ (as Kevin Smith likes to say) is just as much a showcase for comics and a celebration of overall geekdom as it is for movies and games – which let’s be honest have their own fair share of over-obsessed hordes, shouting from the rooftops everything from who’d win between Darth’s Vader and Maul to why Zelda’s Ocarina of Time is better than everything (yes, even that).

Although it’s up for debate whether or not this cross-pollination of mediums is a good or bad thing for what the Con used to stand for, »

Kevin Smith’s Tusk To Hit Theatres In September

18 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Longtime film aficionado (and sometimes filmmaker) Kevin Smith revealed on Twitter Thursday that A24 will release his horror thriller Tusk on Sept. 19, 2014. He also announced on the social media site that the trailer for his latest will premiere at his Comic-Con panel on July 25, one endearingly titled “The Musk of Tusk: An Evening with Kevin Smith.” Two of the film’s stars, Genesis Rodriguez and Haley Joel Osment, will be present in Hall H next Friday, as well.

The thriller originated from an idea on the writer/director’s SModcast podcasts. Smith and producing pal Scott Mosier talked about a situation where a homeowner could live in a place free of charge if he or she agreed to dress as a walrus. Smith asked his Twitter followers to tweet “#WalrusYes” if this had potential to become a feature film. Alas, based on the movie’s title and teaser poster »

The Hulu-Amazon-Netflix Subscriber Battle Is Great for You (For Now)

18 July 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

That epic Comcast cancellation customer-service call that went viral this week resonates far beyond one customer's frustration with his cable service provider. For one thing, there's the fact that Comcast is trying to have its proposed purchase of Time Warner Cable approved by the government as a merger that's in the public interest, while this call seems to confirm what opponents of the merger argue, that the company is already such a monopoly that the purchase will only make it less responsive to consumers, not more. For another thing, it's a reminder that millions of people are only too happy to "cut the cord," to drop their cable TV service in favor of the increasingly large number of Web-based streaming TV services available.

And those streaming services, in the short term at least, seem to be competing with each other to provide the highest quality content to subscribers. Just this week, »

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert Battle for 'Star Wars' Supremacy

18 July 2014 6:35 AM, PDT | | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert have always been neck-and-neck in the battle for Comedy Central late-night supremacy, but they now have another, more personal, score to settle: Who's the biggest Star Wars fan? The two hosts joined Forces for a spectacularly silly promotional clip for Disney and LucasFilm's ongoing Unicef campaign on Omaze, which will send one lucky Star Wars fan and a guest to the film's London set, where they'll appear in a scene, get behind-the-scenes access to a closed shoot and meet a variety of cast members.

Star Wars: Episode VII

Rising actress Christina Chong has reportedly scored unspecified roles in both J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII" and Sergio Mimica-Gezzan's upcoming digital project "Halo: Nightfall".

Chong is a veteran of British TV, having starred in the likes of "Monroe," "Line of Duty," "Whitechapel" and "Doctor Who". She most recently appeared in "24: Live Another Day." [Source: Latino Review]


Alex Kurtzman has pretty much confirmed his old partner's comments from earlier this week that Sony remains undecided about the future of the Spider-Man franchise, namely its spin-offs, at the moment with everything still uncertain:

"Everybody is still figuring it out. It’s all up for grabs, right now. We’re just trying to figure it out. Everything is still on the table, right now. Because it’s a universe outside of the Spider-Man universe, even though it’s connected to it, those movies have to stand on their own. »

Whedon Talks 'Avengers 2', Aronofsky Eyes 'Moonfall' and 'Daredevil' & 'Star Wars' Casting

17 July 2014 3:40 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Joss Whedon spoke about Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is still filming in London, firstly discussing Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson's characters Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, saying: "They're on Team Ultron, which makes things really hard for the Avengers because all of sudden they're dealing with powers that they're not used to... With the first Avengers, everybody pretty much had the power of being able to punch somebody, and now we have a woman who can get inside your head and move objects, and a boy that can move faster than anything, and a robot Ultron who can self-replicate and is out of his mind. So all of sudden, it's a darker, weirder, tougher world that they're living in." Taylor-Johnson chimed in adding, "There's a lot of clashing. He's quick tempered. He gets agitated. He's impatient. But he's super protective... They're very yin-and-yang in that twin sense. In his power, »
