What are the Most Expensive Movie Trilogies of All Timec

22 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the most talked about pieces of news today surrounds the report that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to a so-called "definitive" end on December 17 with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has already run up a $745 million price tag when you take into account the production budget on all three movies. Make no mistake, that's a lot of money, and it really calls into question the so-called $281 million budget for the first three Lord of the Rings movies, but that's what's been reported, though I have seen it as high as $310 million. Taking all this into account I decided to start doing a little research so I hit up Box Office Mojo (and Wikipedia when necessary) in an attempt to find out just what exactly are the most expensive movie trilogies of all-time and I have a list of 50 of them directly below. »

Back To The Future live orchestra tour revealed

21 October 2014 10:54 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Back To The Future, with the score edited out, and then replaced by a live orchestra playing it. How does that sound?

Plans to have a Back To The Future musical on stage in London's West End in time for the film's 30th birthday in 2015 may have hit a snag, but there's a different anniversary celebration being lined up instead.

It's been revealed that a worldwide live orchestra tour of Back To The Future is being planned. It's being put together by Img Artists and the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency. It involves screening a version of the film that's had the score edited out, with the music then played live, as you might guess, by a full orchestra. The first performance will be by the 21st Century Orchestra in Lucerne, Switzerland, in May 2015.

On top of that, composer Alan Silvestri is putting together an extra 15 minutes of new Back To The Future score for the tour. »

21 October 2014 2:48 PM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Back to the Future will return to venues next year accompanied by a live orchestra.

The classic film is to mark its 30th anniversary with a worldwide tour of screenings where an orchestral band will perform Alan Silvestri's score. The composer will also add 15 minutes of new material.

Back to the Future anniversary: 28 reasons why we love the '80s classic

Back to the Future The Musical: What we want to hear

The performances - featuring a screening of the movie assisted by the live orchestra - will begin in Lucerne, Switzerland in May 2015.

The project is a collaboration between Img Artists, the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency and Universal Pictures.

Silvestri was nominated for an Academy Award for his score to the 1985 movie starring Michael J Fox and Christopher Lloyd.

Silvestri will also contribute to the musical based on Back to the Future opening in London's West End next year. »

Someone made a real hoverboard, so you should maybe get excited a little bit

21 October 2014 2:44 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

One day, we're all going to have let go of Back to the Future II. We're just running out of time, you see. 2015 is almost here, and we still need roads. Our clothes can't adjust themselves (although they look the part). And going to the movies is still nothing like this. But one thing still seems within our grasp: the hoverboard. A company called Hendo Hover claims to have finally built a working hoverboard, and have started a Kickstarter in order to put the tech out in the hands of upstart developers around the world. They even have a (really melodramatic) video! »

21 October 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future next year, Universal Pictures will rerelease the 1985 Michael J. Fox time-travel classic with live orchestration. According to Variety, the film will be screened in various venues around the world without the score, so that a live orchestra could perform Alan Silvestri's Academy Award–nominated music. The orchestra will also perform 15 minutes of new music that the composer wrote specifically for the engagements.

The first performance of Back to the Future with live orchestration will take place in May 2015 in Lucerne, »

'Back to the Future' Gets 30th Anniversary Live Orchestra Screenings

21 October 2014 12:48 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

There's been endless celebration of the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters this year with Lego sets and Krispy Kreme doughnuts, but next year, another 80s favorite will be celebrating 30 years as well. Next year, Back to the Future will be 30 years old, and while we haven't heard about any special plans Universal Pictures may have to celebrate, there will be one cool event that fans can try to take advantage of in 2015. Variety reports Back to the Future will get special screenings around the world with a live orchestra utilized to play Alan Silvestri's signature score, just like the Star Trek reboot did this year. More below! Img Artists and the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency are behind the anniversary event which will kick off with a world premiere in Lucerne, Switzerland in late May 2015, featuring the 21st Century Orchestra.

The New Hoverboards Are Nothing Like the Ones in Back to the Future

21 October 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

A company in California will have you believe that it has built a working hoverboard, just like the ones in Back to the Future II. After more than a dozen tries, Arx Pax says its 18th prototype, the Hendo Hoverboard, is the real deal — and it can be yours for a mere $10,000. There is, as the board's breathless media coverage admits, only one catch: Since it's powered by a magnetic field, the board can only hover over surfaces made of non-ferrous metals. That seems like an enormous catch to us! Here is a brief list of places in the real world you can take the Hendo: Down to the supermarket, provided your municipal sidewalks are made of aluminum To the skate park, as long as the half-pipe is constructed out of copper Over a local fountain (that's filled with liquid gold) What Arx Pax has done is invent »

‘Back to the Future’ Gets Live Orchestra for 30th Anniversary Celebration

21 October 2014 11:23 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Back to the Future” will race across the big screen just in time for the comic adventure’s 30th anniversary.

Unlike some other anniversary celebrations, there’s a twist: The picture that made DeLoreans cool, popularized the concept of flux capacitors and made incestuous attraction improbably hilarious will be shown with a live orchestra playing the soundtrack. The original Alan Silvestri score has been edited out, so musicians in major concert halls and performance venues can play in synch with the on-screen action.

The presentation comes courtesy of Img Artists and the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency, which have previously given the live orchestra treatment to such films as “West Side Story,” “Star Trek” and “Home Alone.” The world premiere will be given by the 21st Century Orchestra in Lucerne, Switzerland, in late May and other venues are expected to book the film, a spokesman for the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency said.

Special 'Back to the Future' screenings will feature live orchestra

21 October 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

When Back to the Future celebrates its 30th anniversary next May, the movie will sound like new. Better than new, actually, because select concert venues will present Robert Zemeckis's time-jumping blockbuster along with a live orchestra performing Alan Silvestri's memorable score in sync with the film. So when Marty McFly hits 88 miles per hour in Doc's DeLorean and leaves only a tire-trail of flames behind, it might sound like you're making your own acoustic leap to 1985. The world premiere of the live-music cinematic event—a joint collaboration between Universal, Img Artists, and the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency—will be »

James Cameron Lent Advice for 'Terminator: Genisys', Calls Hollywood Unoriginal

20 October 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

James Cameron doesn't do what James Cameron does for James Cameron. No, James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is James Cameron, and although the Avatar director finds himself prepping for simultaneous production on three sequels to his Pandora-set box office juggernaut, he took a quick second to step away from that world to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Terminator, which turned into a critical and box office success, launching his career and allowing him to continually raise the bar the way we know him to do. As with pretty much all popular franchises, save for Back to the Future, The Terminator is being rebooted, and with that comes speculation as to how franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger will fit into the new movie given he's not exactly a spring chicken anymore. Although Cameron isn't actively involved in the production of Terminator: Genisys, he explained to Deadline »

Watch: How to Create a Forced Perspective

17 October 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | Filmmaker Magazine - Blog | See recent Filmmaker Magazine news »

Distance from Camera x Scale of Model=Distance between Foregrounded Model and Background. That simple bit of arithmetic, as illustrated in the latest Shanks FX episode, is all you need to achieve an accurate “forced perspective.” The technique, recognizable from Back to the Future and myriad 80’s blockbusters, allows for the manipulation of objects to appear larger/smaller or farther/closer than they actually are. In other words, it’s VFX done on the (relative) cheap. »

The Blunt Reason You'll Never See Back To The Future 4

17 October 2014 8:28 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Every single Back To The Future fan has at one point in their life pined for a fourth installment to the seminal franchise to be created. You can.t help it. Forget about how despicably average Back To The Future 3 was. There.s surely still enough plutonium left in the flux capacitor to generate another great adventure that revolves around Michael J. Fox.s Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd.s Doc Brown traveling through time. However, the film.s co-writer and producer has now provided a rather stellar reason for why it obviously won.t happen. And even though it makes perfect sense, you can.t help but hate him for saying it. Bob Gale, who co-wrote and co-produced each of the Back To The Future films, spoke to Yahoo Movies about why there will never be another big-screen instalment to the series. "Let.s face it, we.ve seen »

The X Factor's 1980s week: How the songs should sound

17 October 2014 6:56 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Louis Walsh's rulebook is in tatters. It's a good job the 1980s gave us Back to the Future, because, only a DeLorean hitting 88mph can explain how these songs are being performed on so-called 1980s week.

John Lennon's 'Imagine' was released in 1971 on the Imagine album. It was re-released as a single to promote the Shaved Fish compilation though. In 1975.

It topped the charts after Lennon was murdered in 1980, and then was re-released in 1988 (and 1999), but frankly, that's cheating.

Also striking is the song and artist list published by ITV. Ben Haenow will be performing 'Jealous Guy'.

Of course that's not Lennon's version, also released on 1971's Imagine (re-released as a posthumous single in 1985). It's not even Roxy Music's famous memorial cover from 1981.

Ben is apparently covering Donny Hathaway's version. Made famous on 1972's Live. There's more timey-wimey stuff going on here ('If You Don't Know Me', »

It's not too often in the film community that fans can get excited over something Not happening, but this is exactly one of those cases. Despite Universal Pictures hitting up creators Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale to sequelize/reboot the Back To The Future series, Mr. Gale recently spoke against the idea, assuring fans that this is something not in the cards. Oddly enough, a stage musical of the most entertaining time-traveling duo (bold claim, I know) is in the works. Regarding the »

Here's How Back to the Future Plans To Celebrate Its 30th Anniversary

16 October 2014 11:03 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's a fact that we're uncomfortable admitting, but next summer will mark the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. (Oh how time flies!) As beloved and iconic as this '80s classic is, you can bet that its makers have an eye out for ways to toast the film's long-running popularity. And screenwriter Bob Gale is dropping some details. Speaking with Yahoo, Bob Gale, who co-wrote Back to the Future with its director Robert Zemeckis, wasn't shy about sharing how the film will be toasted in 2015. He offered: "We.ve got some books in the works, and some fan celebrations. And I hope some other things are going to come to fruition. We.re definitely going to celebrate it, not only because the original movie is 30 years old, but also because Part II takes place in October 2015, so there are a lot of people looking at that angle, saying »
