Small films released on the same day as major blockbusters

8 July 2014 6:54 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Some great films were released on the same day as such recent hits as The Dark Knight Rises and Frozen. Here are a few of them...

Odd List

The 3rd July 2013 saw the release of Disney's The Lone Ranger, its larger-than-life western starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer. Its theatrical debut marked the end of a lengthy and difficult production, stories from which had been hungrily served up by the media - the previous summer was dominated by news stories of its spiralling budget, which was thought to have crossed $250m. Nevertheless, the 2013 blockbuster season should, in theory, have marked a fresh start for Disney, as it spent a reported $150m on marketing The Lone Ranger. But the House of Mouse hadn't counted on the popularity of another film launched on that exact same day in July: Universal's animated sequel, Despicable Me 2.

24 March 2014 4:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Not much to speak of in the pre-amble this week except that From Dusk Till Dawn episode 2 on Netflix continued in fine form and presented an interesting and somewhat unique version of a vampire which was actually quite scary. If you have written this off because it sounds cheap and forced (admittedly on paper it does) I urge you to give it a watch, the dialogue alone is better than most TV shows, “Got your balls on?” is a great line I will repeat ad nauseam henceforth.

In other news Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has criticised internet providers for not providing a good enough service to allow users to use Netflix to its full potential and the costs of maintaining such a connection, mainly what ISPs are expecting streaming companies to pay them.

'Queen of Versailles' Filmmaker Beats Westgate's Defamation Claim (Exclusive)

14 March 2014 1:17 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Lauren Greenfield has scored the big victory that likely ends David Siegel's attempt to punish the filmmaker over The Queen of Versailles. This week, an arbitrator at the Independent Film and Television Alliance ruled that the documentary about the time-share baron wasn't defamatory. "Having viewed the supposedly egregious portions of the Motion Picture numerous times, [the Arbitrator] simply does not find that any of the content of the Motion Picture was false," rules arbitrator Roy Rifkin. The lawsuit was brought by Siegel's Westgate Resorts on the precipices of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. The film focuses on Siegel's
