Director Maya Forbes Talks Infinitely Polar Bear, Tackling the Issue of Mental Illness, Mark Ruffalo, the Difficulty of Getting Films Made as a Woman, and More

20 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

One of the rare films to play at both Sundance and the Toronto International Film Festival was writer-director Maya Forbes’ Infinitely Polar Bear.  Based on her own childhood experiences, the film takes place in 1978 Boston and stars Mark Ruffalo as a manic-depressive father struggling to raise his young daughters while also trying to win back his wife (Zoe Saldana).  Loaded with fantastic performances and a great script that’s able to keep Ruffalo sympathetic even when he’s causing serious problems, Forbes’ debut feature really impressed me, and you should look forward to seeing it for yourself next year in theaters. Shortly after the Tiff premiere I landed an exclusive interview with Maya Forbes.  During the interview she talked about getting to be part of Sundance and Tiff, her first cut of the film and what she cut out, the subject matter and how there is an element of fortuitousness »

James Cameron May Shoot 'Avatar' Sequels at 120 Fps

15 September 2014 2:22 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Will Avatar sequels use new high frame rate 4K 3D system?

15 September 2014 5:08 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Cameron's Avatar sequels could use Douglas Trumbull's new system for 4K 3D at 120 frames per second.

The filmmaker and inventor has discussed the new system with Avatar series producer Jon Landau, he told The Hollywood Reporter.

Landau has requested a screening of short film Ufotog, which is being used as a showcase for the Magi process.

"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 rates [HFRs]," said Trumbull.

"The use of HFRs for Avatar would be very appropriate and very successful.

"I don't know if Cameron is interested [in using Magi for the Avatar sequels]. He's in seclusion writing the screenplay for Avatar. I am talking to Jon Landau, and we plan to have a screening [of Ufotog] soon."

Trumbull has said that he is in talks with other directors about Magi.

"It delivers extreme fluidity of motion and amazing clarity with no strobing, no double flickering and a viewing »

Lambasted Elba and Henson Thriller Going Unpunished to Top Domestic Box Office Chart

14 September 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

No Good Deed’ movie going unpunished to top weekend box office? (photo: Idris Elba in ‘No Good Deed’) Apologies for the bad wordplay above, but if Friday estimates are a reliable indicator, No Good Deed should indeed go unpunished to the top of the domestic box office this weekend, September 12-14, 2014. But why "unpunished"? Well, so far the Sam Miller-directed thriller starring four-time Emmy nominee Idris Elba (Luther) and Best Supporting Actress Academy Award nominee Taraji P. Henson (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button) has a downright putrid 10% score and 2.6/10 average among Rotten Tomatoes‘ top critics. Sony Pictures, whose subsidiary ScreenGems is distributing No Good Deed, reportedly opted to skip late Thursday screenings to ensure that the film’s plot twist would be kept under wraps. More likely, however, it was the critics’ derisive remarks that Sony wanted under wraps. For instance: "The final plot twist is about as »

'Guardians of the Galaxy' Deleted Scene Reveals Walkman Dance

13 September 2014 12:35 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

One of the more poignant scenes in this summer's mega-behemoth Guardians of the Galaxy finds Chris Pratt racing against the clock to retrieve his beloved Walkman before the rest of his crew takes off without him. He encounters actor Spencer Wilding, playing a mean prison guard who is enjoying Escape (The Pina Colada Song) on the Sony cassette player when he gets his comupance. There was actually more to Spencer Wilding's role that we didn't get to see.

Director James Gunn has posted a photo of himself with Spencer Wilding, revealing why the man is holding a miniature can of Play-Doh. He also goes onto describe a scene where the Guard dances through the prison listening to the Walkmen. Check out the photo, then read on for James Gunn's latest tale from the set:

Box Office: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Hits $600 Million Worldwide

13 September 2014 9:46 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

It’s another day, another milestone for “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Or maybe two.

The Marvel-Disney tentpole has earned $300 million at both the domestic and foreign box offices. “Guardians,” the highest grossing film of the year in the U.S., hit the mark on Friday and will make over $305 million Stateside by Sunday. It will cross $600 million worldwide by Saturday.

“Guardians” is the only movie of the year to cross $300 million domestically. Fellow Marvel-Disney blockbuster “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” grossed $259.7 million, Warner Bros.’ “The Lego Movie” hauled $257.7 million and Paramount’s “Transformers: Age of Extinction” reeled in $244.8 million. “Transformers,” however, is the global champ with $1.07 billion. The bulk of its revenues came from China, where “Guardians” won’t debut for another month.

After three consecutive weekends at number one, the intergalactic pic came in third on Friday behind new releases “No Good Deed” and “Dolphin Tale 2.”

Guardians of the Galaxy crosses $600 million worldwide, first movie of 2014 to hit $300 million domestically

13 September 2014 8:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After becoming Marvel’s biggest-franchise starter at the global box-office by overtaking the haul of 2008’s Iron Man earlier in the week, James Gunn’s space opera Guardians of the Galaxy has now become the first release of 2014 to hit $300 million domestically and has also crossed the $600 million mark worldwide. Having opened in Japan yesterday, and with a Chinese release still to come, Guardians certainly has a good chance of becoming the highest-grossing comic book movie of the year, with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 on $708 million, Captain America: The Winter Soldier on $714 million and X-Men: Days of Future Past on $745 million.

Guardians of the Galaxy sees Gunn directing a cast that includes Chris Pratt (The Lego Movie) as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana (Star Trek Into Darkness) as Gamora, Dave Bautista (Riddick) as Drax the Destroyer, Bradley Cooper (American Hustle) as Rocket Raccoon, Vin Diesel (Fast & Furious 6) as Groot, Benicio Del Toro (Sin City) as The Collector, »

Watch ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Gag Reel

12 September 2014 4:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

With the release of the Star Trek: The Compendium in the USA, that includes Jj AbramsStar Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-Ray, they’ve shared this rather entertaining gag reel from the latter – and as always with these there’s a lot of fun to be had.

I don’t know why we love watching things go so terrible wrong in dramatic moments but maybe it’s because we feel we’d never be able to keep a straight face when chasing Khan through a starship, you know, as you do. In this quick selection of clips, you get some Chris Pine, Simon Pegg, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and our favourite Brit Benedict Cumberbatch having a moment, check it out below:

Sure there’s only been the two new films so far, but that Star Trek: The Compendium still looks impressive and if you wanted »

Watch: 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Gag Reel Full of Cast Flubs & Dancing

11 September 2014 1:50 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

For some reason, with only two films in the rebooted Star Trek franchise, someone at Paramount Pictures decided it was a good time to release Star Trek: The Compendium. Since it only has Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-Ray along with a whole slew of extras for each film, we're not sure that we'd call that a compendium, but whatever. The good thing to come out of it are some unseen extras from the sci-fi sequel from J.J. Abrams, including a hilarious gag reel featuring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana and even Benedict Cumberbatch making the most of their movie mistakes. Watch below! Check out the gag reel teaser for Star Trek Into Darkness found on YouTube (via SlashFilm): Star Trek: The Compendium is available for purchase right now and includes Star Trek and Star Trek Into Darkness on Blu-Ray along with digital »

Benedict Cumberbatch Is the Star of This Star Trek Into Darkness Blooper Reel

11 September 2014 8:27 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

I know Star Trek Into Darkness came out over a year ago, but this blooper reel has just been released, and it deserves your eyeballs. Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, and Simon Pegg are all featured flubbing lines and accidentally smashing walls (seriously), but Benedict Cumberbatch is the funniest one. He's so serious in the movie that it's straight-up weird to see him break character midshoot. In true Cumberbatch fashion, it's the best. The reel is featured on the Star Trek: The Compendium box set, or you can just watch it below. This video has been deleted. Front Page Image Source: Paramount Pictures »

Dave Bautista’s Drax the Destroyer to feature heavily in Avengers 3?

10 September 2014 11:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

After his hugely entertaining, and somewhat surprising turn in Guardians of the Galaxy, star man Dave Bautista could now be more involved in more Marvel films than just the upcoming Guardians sequel.

PWMania has posted up a piece about Bautista’s future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, saying Marvel Studios is “currently restructuring his contract that will likely see him get more money due to the success of Guardians of the Galaxy. This will also lock Bautista in for a number of other Marvel movies. Bautista is slated for Guardians of the Galaxy 2 as well as the 3rd Avengers movie, where he will have a significant role. That movie will be a few years down the road.”

It certainly sounds like Bautista may be a big key in the future of the Marvel’s Phase Three, but most of the news here should be taken with a grain of salt. »
