Lytro Camera Introduction Draws a Crowd at Nab Show — and Promises a Revolution

19 April 2016 7:33 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When the booths are struck, the drones are packed away and the broadcast trucks drive away, the 2016 Nab Show is likely to be remembered for just a handful of things: the first working demo of next-generation television in the U.S.; Ang Lee’s showing of footage from “Billy Lynn’s Halftime Walk”; and the first public introduction of the Lytro Cinema Camera.

Of the three, the Lytro system is the most obscure, but in the long run, possibly the most disruptive.

“It’s going to revolutionize not only the way we make films but the way we define photography,” said director Robert Stromberg, who put the camera through its paces as director of a short film shot entirely with the prototype. “It’s an amazing technology.”

A standing-room-only crowd packed into the largest meeting room at the Las Vegas Convention Center to watch the introduction — a far bigger crowd »

'Deadpool' Smashes Box Office Records On Way to $260 Million Worldwide Opening

14 February 2016 9:38 AM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Blowing away even the most lofty of expectations, Deadpool decimated the Valentine's and President's Day weekend box office in record-breaking fashion with an estimated $135 million three-day weekend. As for its incoming competition, How to be Single performed mostly as expected while fifteen years proved too long to wait to release Zoolander 2. Rewriting the box office record books, Deadpool broke Fifty Shades of Grey's previous February opening weekend record by nearly $45 million based on estimates and that's just the start. The largest opening for an R-rated film was previously $91.7 million, set by The Matrix Reloaded in 2003. That's been destroyed. The largest opening weekend for an R-rated comic book adaptation was previously set by 300 with $70.8 million. Bye, bye. This is even the largest opening weekend ever for 20th Century Fox, beating a record of $108.4 million previously held by Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Though, to be fair, Revenge of the Sith »

"The Martian" Vr Spin-Off Hits CES

5 January 2016 6:36 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Just ahead of the film's release on disc next week and timed perfectly for both CES in Las Vegas this week and the pre-ordering of Oculus Rifts headsets from tomorrow, 20th Century Fox has launched a Ridley Scott-approved Vr offshoot of his sci-fi epic "The Martian".

'The Martian Vr Experience' allows viewers to step into the shoes of astronaut Mark Watney (Matt Damon) and explore Mars. It places viewers in a first-person guided narrative which runs just shy of half-an-hour.

The viewer is stranded on Mars and is given such interactive tasks as driving a rover or preparing for liftoff to survive. Footage from Ridley Scott's film helps tell the story.

Scott served as executive producer on the project, offering his input, while "Avatar" production designer Robert Stromberg helmed the project which was in production for seven months and involved about 20 animators.

It also follows the film's tone, »
