Let’S Be Cops Director to Take on '80s Style Sci-Fi Project Slingshot

15 hours ago | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Let’s Be Cops director Luke Greenfield is set to direct an original sci-fi film project set up at Warner Bros. called Slingshot. He came up with the concept with his producing partner Trevor Sands, and the story is said to be in the same vein as the classic Steven Spielberg Amblin movies.

As of right now, details on the project are slim but it will be a tribute to the classic '80s films that inspired the director to want to make movies for a living. Some of the classic films that inspired him include E.T. and Back To The Future

Greenfield is the same guy who brought us the hilarious sex comedy The Girl Next Girl. It seems like he’s only worked in the comedy genre, so taking the leap into sci-fi will be a big jump for him, and it’s one I’d love to see pay off. »

Obsessed with Pop Culture: Best of the Week

22 November 2014 3:44 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Starry Eyes’: The feel disturbed movie of the year

This film is at its very core a success story. A very demented, gory, horrifying and darkly comical success story – one with tinges of satanic cult horror wrapped in psychological terror. The plot follows a young aspiring actress, Sarah, as she is called back to audition for a horror film that is being produced by a mysterious production company that pushes her to her limits – a dark exchange for fame and fortune… click here to read the article. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I’ is all prologue

In a previous review of the second instalment of The Hunger Games series for this website, I expressed some dismay that Catching Fire didn’t really have a conclusion to speak of, with its cliffhanger ending reminding me less of The Empire Strikes Back and more of The Matrix Reloaded orPirates of »

Watch London 'Back to the Future' Fans Live the Movie via Immersive Screenings

21 November 2014 11:56 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Months after staging immersive screenings of Back to the Future in London, Secret Cinema has posted a short video taking those who couldn't secure tickets to the popular event back in time to 1955 and to the film's slightly more recent setting of 1985. Secret Cinema completely re-created the film's 1955 version of Hill Valley and had actors dressed as the movie's characters reenact many scenes, including George McFly telling Lorraine he's her "density" and Lorraine being surprised by Marty (aka "Calvin Klein") at school. They even set up an Enchantment Under the Sea dance. Watch more Comic-Con:

Epic Back To The Future Outdoor Screening Event

21 November 2014 7:24 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

I really, really, really wish that I could have attended this Secret Cinema event screening of Back to the Future. It’s the most epic Back to the Future screening I’ve ever seen. It wasn't just a screening of the classic movie, it was an event that included a live performances and offered a theme park like experience. They rebuilt the town of Hill Valley for crying’ out loud! The video below will show you exactly what I’m talking about. 

The event took place this last summer and I’m so, so sad that I missed out on it. Luckily for me and anyone else that lives in Los Angeles, Secret Cinema is coming to town sometime in 2015! To see some of the other events that they've put on, click here. Now check out the video, and see what we all missed.

Watch an incredible live staging of ‘Back to the Future’

21 November 2014 7:21 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back to the Future is one of the most beloved films of the last several decades, and an arguably perfect Hollywood film, but it’s a wonder that the film hasn’t gotten the same cult treatment as say, The Rocky Horror Picture Show. No one would bat an eye at performers acting out scenes in front of a live screening of that film, but now one group called Secret Cinema has gone the extra mile and done the same for Robert Zemeckis’s film. And they’ve spared no expense, completely recreating the old ’50s town of Hill Valley, California in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. Take a look:

/Film shared the video Thursday after first reporting on the event back in June. They point out that another secret screening of Back to the Future may arrive in Los Angeles at some point. But in the mean time, »

10 Paradoxes That Should Break Back To The Future

21 November 2014 5:46 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Universal Pictures

If you’ve ever had a fantasy about time travel, chances are it’s been sparked by Back To The Future. Even if the scenario in your head is in no way related to hitting on your mother’s younger self or fighting cowboys, then the mechanics of you how you get back to that point (you sicko) have been the same as they are in Robert Zemeckis’s classic trilogy of blockbuster sci-fi films. The rules of time travel as they exist in Back To The Future are by no means watertight or foolproof, but they were never meant to be. They’re just fun films. That’s why they can be applied to day dreams so easily.

It’s also why said day dreams and, consequently, the films can be torn down so easily. Give even the slightest amount of serious thought to all of the timeline-altering, »

Pifff Day 1: Three Promising Debuts in Time Lapse, Housebound, and Nightcrawler

20 November 2014 10:19 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The first day of the Paris International Fantastic Film Festival kicked off with a cult classic and three first-time feature films that are a promising debut for their respective directors: Time Lapse, Housebound and Nightcrawler kept the audience on the edge of their seats, while Wes Craven's A Nightmare on Elm Street, programmed in the Retro category, still manages to scare us witless for 90 minutes some 30 years after its release. Hit the jump for my reviews. Bradley King’s Time Lapse, the first film in competition, could be an extended episode of The Twilight Zone.  The banal existence of three roommates -- a young couple, Callie (Danielle Panabaker) and Finn (Matt O’Leary), and their friend Jasper (George Finn) -- changes when they discover a photographic time machine in their missing neighbor's apartment, located right across their home.  The mysterious machine, invented by their missing scientist neighbor, photographs events 24 hours in advance. »

20 November 2014 3:05 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

But when I say what you're about to see looks like the undeniably greatest screening of Back to the Future of all-time, I mean it when every fiber of my being.

Must Watch: The Greatest ‘Back to the Future’ Screening Of All “Time”

20 November 2014 2:30 PM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Outdoor movie screenings are so much fun. They’re not usually the ideal place to first see a movie, of course, but as a communal experience, where everyone knows the movie, it’s the best. Secret Cinema, however, is so much more than an outdoor screening series. It’s an outdoor screening coupled with a live performance and […]

Back To The Future Flux Capacitor Watch

20 November 2014 2:24 PM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Everyday we inch closer to the 30th anniversary of the theatrical release of Robert ZemeckisBack to the Future. Next year we’ll also be living in the future year depicted in Back to the Future Part II. So it’s no wonder why we’ve seen an influx of Bttf-themed items modeled after the Flux Capacitor, from a Usb charger to an extremely accurate replica that you can use as a keychain. We’ve also seen concept art for a Flux Capacitor watch and a parody video that imagined that the then unreleased iPhone 6 came equipped with a working version of Doc Brown’s invention. We didn’t get a time traveling phone, but Think Geek made the Flux Capacitor watch a reality — or, at least, a watch modeled after the look of the Flux Capacitor. Here’s a breakdown of how to read the time using the flashing »

20 November 2014 4:22 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Secret Cinema has unveiled a short film about its ambitious Back to the Future event earlier this year.

In August, the immersive movie production team created its own version of Hill Valley from the 1985 movie, complete with shops, restaurants and hundreds of actors.

Post by Secret Cinema.

The video shows how actors portrayed Marty McFly and Emmett Brown and carried out stunts while the movie played, while a DeLorean and other drove around the audience members.

Jarvis Cocker makes a brief cameo in the promo, which features classic songs from the film including 'Power of Love' by Huey Lewis & the News.

Secret Cinema also hint at a potential sequel to the project, as the video ends with a 'To Be Continued...' statement in the style of the original films.

Watch Tony Hawk Ride a Real 'Back to the Future'-Style Hoverboard

20 November 2014 2:33 AM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Back to the Future II promised us much, but what we all dearly wanted was a hoverboard. Well, the video below suggests that the wait is almost over.  The mighty steed you see legendary skateboarder Tony Hawk mount is a real, working hoverboard. Yes, it hovers. Off the ground. For real. Created by Hendo, the hoverboard is self-propelled by using four disc-shaped magnets that create an electromagnetic field, which generates the one-inch lift. Hendo recently started a Kickstarter campaign to raise $250,000 to manufacture the first few hoverboards. The company has already raised almost half

New Trailer Hits For Found Footage Time Travel Thriller Project Almanac

18 November 2014 12:22 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Paramount Pictures has unveiled a brand new trailer for director Dean Israelite’s thriller, Project Almanac. Tying together two distinct genres; found footage and time travel, it might come as a surprise to learn that the long-gestating movie was produced by none other than Michael Bay.

Bay’s Platinum Dunes label picked up the film back in 2012, switched its name to Welcome To Yesterday and began shooting in 2013. Aiming for a Winter 2014 release, at the last minute the studio pulled the pic from the cinematic calendar. After reinstating the original title, the finished product debuted at Comic-Con last year, receiving a most encouraging response from critics.

With its release date edging ever closer, a new rebranded trailer has arrived to further stoke our curiosity. It comes across like a sorta-sequel to Chronicle, borrowing the same style and similar thematic emblem of meddlesome teens. Focusing on a group of high schoolers »

Time Travel Troubles In First Full Trailer For ‘Project Almanac’

18 November 2014 11:46 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Taking a little spirit of Chronicle and undoubtedly The Butterfly Effect, not to mention the thoughts behind Back To The Future and many other time-travel adventures, this first trailer for Project Almanac does offer an exciting vibe with interesting looking occurances but maybe tries to show off too much, too quickly.

However, we can never truly judge a film before we see it and with a fresh new cast, this does look full of promise and will bring something fresh to 2015 among the old remakes as it follows a brilliant high school student and his friends, who uncover blueprints for a mysterious device with limitless potential, and (of course) inadvertently put lives in danger.

The upcoming are cast here are Jonny Weston, Sofia Black-d’Elia, Sam Lerner, Allen Evangelista, and Ginny Gardner. It opens in February, 2015 and so check out the trailer below:

20 Greatest Ending Lines in Film History

18 November 2014 2:18 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Bad Hat Harry Productions

There’s nothing so awful as the disappointment you feel when you’re watching a really good movie, and then all of a sudden the ending just falls apart. It feels like you’ve wasted your time getting emotionally invested, and the filmmakers have let you down. It’s easy to write a beginning, but endings are the hard part – any writer will tell you that. That’s why it’s so impressive when a movie manages to close on a really high note, one that you’ll remember for a long time after watching.

It’s possible, although difficult, to take the entire soul of a film and shove it into a few words or sentences at the end of the movie. They’re capable of summing up everything that it represents, and leaving us with a profound impression of what the film was supposed »

Mondo’s ‘Back to the Future’ Poster By Matt Taylor

15 November 2014 8:51 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Back to the Future might just be the perfect commercial Hollywood film, a rousing a time-travel adventure with unforgettable spirit, that has endured so well because it walks that fine tightrope of managing to appeal to just about everyone. In honour of the film, artist Matt Taylor teamed up with Mondo to deliver a colorful Back to the Future poster print. The 18? x 24? sized print will be released at Thought Bubble in the UK in an edition of only 225.

  Here’s what Matt Taylor had to say about the print via SlashFilm: “Bttf is basically my dream project and as such is utterly terrifying, because it is embedded in the public consciousness and has it’s own library of iconography that even people who haven’t seen the film will know. On top of that, the previous Bttf series at Mondo are amongst the highlights of their output – so a »
