Anghus Houvouras on technology and the movies…
Technology plays a pivotal role in the world of moviemaking, both in front of and behind the camera. So many of our biggest blockbusters are the products of technical innovation and many feature the kind of awesome future tech that is integral to the plot. Like the original Independence Day, that not only featured the superior alien technology of laser beams and force fields but also a little laptop that managed to upload a computer virus to the mothership and save humanity.
The kind of technology we see on screen is often a product of fiction, created by the Production Designers of a feature film to convince us they can do the impossible. These days it’s easy to spot movies using real world tech and applications, especially when it feels inorganic to whatever you’re watching. Like when Peter Parker pulls out »

American Sniper star Bradley Cooper will make his directorial debut with A Star Is Born, and a new report from Deadline reveals that singer turned award winning actress Lady Gaga (American Horror Story) looks set to join him. Beyonce was originally up for the role a while back, but negotiations with the “Poker Face” singer look set to begin soon.
As the trade points out, Lady Gaga’s involvement guarantees that A Star Is Born will have a killer soundtrack, but it will also be interesting to see how Cooper fares in the director’s chair. The actor and producer worked on the screenplay with Will Fetters, which will have Gaga playing a young woman whose dreams of stardom are helped by a self-destructive icon whose best days are behind him (Cooper). A few different versions of A Star Is Born have been made in the past, with various iterations »

Marvel has unveiled plans for an expanded merchandising program for next year’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2″ — with plenty of Groot.
The moves come in the wake of the first film grossing $770 million at the worldwide box office in 2014. Marvel will give retailers a first look at the new line on Monday at Licensing Expo 2016 in Las Vegas, with categories including toys, games, books, apparel and accessories.
Hasbro, Lego, Funko and Lb Kids are among dozens of licensees who have helped the franchise’s Disney Xd animated series focus on younger consumers. The show launched last September and has been renewed for a second season starting in the fall.
Groot, a key component to the first film’s appeal, is central to the new campaign. The “Dancing Groot” bobble-head is Funko’s best-seller of all time in its Pop! line. Hasbro, the lead toy partner, is releasing a »

Back in May, Deadline reported that talks emerged to have Lady Gaga star in Bradley Cooper’s remake of “A Star Is Born” for Warner Bros. At that time the singer had not committed to the project, but now it seems as if she is ready for her big-screen close up.
Gaga is now officially in negotiations to star opposite Cooper, who is set to make his directorial debut.
Based on William Wellman’s 1937 movie, the story centers on a movie star who helps an aspiring young actress as his own career is in a downward spiral. The film was remade in 1954 with Judy Garland and 1976 with Barbra Streisand, in what would be Gaga’s role.
The “Born This Way” singer was high on Cooper’s list of actresses after Beyoncé had to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. »
