The best sound editing category is going to be tough to call at this year’s Oscars, but the race is boiling down to Hacksaw Ridge versus La La Land. While we won’t know who won the Academy’s favor until Sunday, we already know the Motion Picture Sound Editors have honored these two films — among others — at their annual Golden Reel Awards. How often does this society of sound editors predict the corresponding category at the Academy Awards? Let’s take a look and find out.

Nominated alongside Hacksaw Ridge and La La Land in the best sound editing category at this year’s Oscars are Arrival, Sully, and Deepwater Horizon. The Hollywood Reporter’s Scott Feinberg predicts that Damien Chazelle’s modern musical will take home the trophy by overtaking Mel Gibson’s big Hollywood return. »

Fireworks Wednesday (Asghar Farhadi)

After a festival tour back in 2006, Asghar Farhadi’s Fireworks Wednesday was theatrically re-released by the newly established Grasshopper Films, and now it’s arriving on DVD. The drama is another precisely calibrated, culturally specific demonstration of Farhadi’s skills in constructing empathy machines. Further in line with the director’s filmography, this story has a nesting-doll structure that combines ingrained social hierarchies, domestic drama, and a tragic intersection of misunderstandings. And while it »

Terminator 2: Judgment Day gets 3D release in the UK this August

20 February 2017 1:43 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

StudioCanal has announced that James Cameron’s 1991 sci-fi action classic Terminator 2: Judgment Day will be returning to screens in the UK with a special 3D release beginning August 25th 2017 (that’s just four days before the 20th anniversary of Judgment Day).

The film has been converted into immersive 3D by Lightstorm, James Cameron’s production company, and the team behind the 3D conversion of Titanic. The original 35mm negative was scanned and then restored in 4k at Deluxe L.A., under the supervision of Geoff Burdick of Lightstorm. The film was calibrated in 4k by Skip, James Cameron’s colorist, at Technicolor Hollywood, with a selection of the best 35mm prints from the film’s first release. The film was then converted into 3D by Stereo D (Star Wars, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Jurassic World). This »

Star Trek Beyond’ (Courtesy: Paramount)

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

Just as the Star Wars films has been a force to be reckoned with in the best visual effects category, the Star Trek films have done the same in the best makeup and hairstyling category. Over the course of Oscar history — or at least since the addition of this award — this sci-fi franchise has amassed four nominations in this category with one of those being a win and one being up in the air this year. Let’s take a look back and see if history can help us predict how Star Trek Beyond will perform.

Before jumping into the Star Trek goodness, let’s get a little background on the best makeup and hairstyling category, shall we? The category, which features multiple stages of nominating, was first present at the 1982 ceremony with a focus on makeup and didn’t »

Berlin Film Review: ‘Logan’

17 February 2017 1:30 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Logan,” the third and final chapter in the “Wolverine” series (though it’s the 10th — count ’em — “X-Men” film, and not necessarily the last), opens in 2029 on the outskirts of El Paso, where Logan (Hugh Jackman) steps out of the beat-up limo he now drives for a living to confront the goons who are trying to strip the car. To say that Logan looks the worse for wear would be putting it mildly. He’s a drunk, with mottled skin and his trademark sci-fi muttonchops grown into a scraggly beard. (The beard looks like a virus that’s going around, as if Jackman were warming up to play Mel Gibson.)

Optics aside, it’s Logan’s mutant prowess that’s really been tamped down. In any previous installment, a skirmish with mere mortals wouldn’t have been much of a contest, but Logan’s razory knuckle-blades no longer pop with the same alacrity, »

Deadpool 2 Eyes Scandal Star Kerry Washington as Domino

14 February 2017 11:42 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With a new director on board in Chad Stahelski (John Wick, John Wick 2), 20th Century Fox is moving forward with Deadpool 2, which is believed to start filming this summer. It has long been confirmed that this sequel will feature both Cable and Domino from the Marvel Comics, although neither of these characters have been cast at this time. Today we have a new casting breakdown with details about Domino, with Scandal star Kerry Washington reportedly testing for the role.

These new details come from The Hashtag Show, which was provided with a casting breakdown for Domino. Unlike most casting breakdowns that use code names for these secretive characters, this breakdown avoids the subterfuge by using Domino's given name of Neena. This report also reveals that, while Kerry Washington is currently reading for the role, both Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Sienna Miller have both passed on the role. Kerry Washington is »

Arrival (Denis Villeneuve)

Within the alien subgenre, there lies another. Therein, knowledge is treasure and the fifth dimension is love. The major rule: once the mystery and the chills have subsided, the revelations are enlightening and the welcomes warm. Thankfully, Denis Villeneuve‘s Arrival is more worthwhile than that. The film juggles a bit of world-building with meaty, compelling characters while trying to make linguistics look cool. No easy task, but the film does so in a breeze »

Cameraperson (Kirsten Johnson)

A travelogue through one artist’s subconscious, Cameraperson is perhaps the most plural film of 2016 – a formal, tonal, situational, and pacing exercise that lulls viewers into thinking it’s set on one thing before turning towards seemingly new territory. And it never feels out-of-balance because director Kirsten Johnson has, by building this film around moments that “marked” her, granted such an intimate experience that it almost feels wrong to intellectualize much of anything that’s going on here, »

41 trailer scenes that didn’t make the final film

6 February 2017 3:24 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Leane Feb 10, 2017

Star Wars, Terminator 2, Fantastic Beasts and more: they all have scenes in the trailer, that never made the final film...

More often than you might think, scenes that appear in movie trailer don’t turn up in the finished film. This can leave trailer-loving audience members confused as the credits roll, wondering if they dropped off and missed something important.

A couple of massive movies have done this recently, and the internet has been quick to fill in the blanks with speculation. Fingers have been pointed at tinkering studio bigwigs and extensive reshoots, when the reality is often a little less dramatic: filmmakers always chop some footage in the edit, and they rarely have much involvement in the trailers. »

Are the Academy Awards really biased against blockbusters?

4 February 2017 4:35 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Angus Houvouras on whether the Academy Awards are really biased against blockbusters…

You’ve gotta love James Cameron. If ever a director has earned our collective respect, it’s the guy that brought us Terminator, Aliens, T2, The Abyss, and True Lies. Then again he also brought us Dark Angel, Avatar, Titanic, and a ringing endorsement of Terminator: Genisys. That last one is crazy enough to put a nice coat of tarnish on his platinum finish among film fans.

Cameron talked recently about how blockbusters are generally ignored by all the major awards. This generally accepted concept was challenged by Cameron who believes this line of thought to be blatantly unfair against the big budget movies that rarely get mentioned during award season when studios are promoting smaller stories and more dramatic fare.

Blockbusters have never really been considered Oscar bait in the creative categories. Sure, you’ll find »

Where the Terminator franchise went wrong (by James Cameron)

30 January 2017 11:12 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Simon Brew Jan 31, 2017

James Cameron on the Terminator sequels, and how to make the series relevant again.

Ever since Terminator 2: Judgment Day swept the box office back in 1991, a couple of important things have happened surrounding the Terminator franchise.

Firstly, James Cameron has never made another film in the series, only popping his head above the parapet to praise Terminator: Genisys ahead of its release back in 2015 (Cameron is one heck of a filmmaker, less successful as a film reviewer).

However, for the next Terminator film, due around 2019, Cameron is back. He’s got a creative role on the new film, although he won’t have time to direct it, given his commitment to four new Avatar movies. Instead, Tim Miller (Deadpool) is said to be directing the next Terminator film.

But where has the series gone wrong? Plenty of us could get a Powerpoint presentation out of that question. »

Movies and TV Shows That Would Make Perfect Slot Machines

30 January 2017 8:52 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Movies and TV shows have always served as a perfect source of inspiration for slot machine designers. The Vegas Palms casino online has quite a few of them, titles like Jurassic Park, Bridesmaids, Terminator 2: Judgment Day and Battlestar Galactica (with a Jurassic World inspired slot machine reportedly in the works). Movie and TV show inspired slots are great not only to retain players but to promote upcoming movies, too – at least two of the above were released in time for their respective franchises’ revivals.

The world seems to have an unlimited supply of movies, yet the number of slot machines inspired by them is rather low. It’s a pity – fans should be able to enjoy the company of their favorite stars in a bit more active fashion. Here are a few franchises that could make perfect slot machines, bringing them one step closer to their fans’ hearts…

James Cameron Doesn’t Think The Alien Franchise Has “Worked Out Terribly Well”

27 January 2017 3:30 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Hollywood hasn’t always played nice with some of its biggest franchises. Occasionally, you get some truly great ones that managed to maintain their integrity throughout the entire run, but more often in the industry, franchises are run hard into the ground. Before the age of cinematic universes, studios had a tendency to rely solely on the name recognition of their sequels, and this trend is what led to the downfall of some greats, including the Alien franchise.

The original film (directed by Ridley Scott) hit theaters in 1979, and went on to become a staple in the horror/sci-fi genre. 1986 saw the release of the more action-oriented sequel Aliens, which was directed by James Cameron. Since that point, the film franchise kind of went off the deep end. Alien 3 had all the best intentions, but ultimately fell short of expectations, and Alien: Resurrections..let’s pretend that never happened, »

James Cameron Planning New 'Terminator' With 'Deadpool' Director

23 January 2017 1:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Released when he was just 32, James Cameron's The Terminator immediately established him as a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood. The sci-fi thriller, made for an estimated $6.4 million, earned more than $80 million worldwide, an enviable return on investment for a movie that wasn't made for a major studio. Cameron, who worked initially as an art director, production designer and special visual effects artist before making his directorial debut on Piranha II: The Spawning, quickly lined up a big-budget sequel, Aliens, which took the horror premise of the original and transformed it into a rockin' action movie that made more than $131 million worldwide, a huge figure at the time. Terminator 2: Judgment Day flipped the original's premise by making Arnold...

Whoa! Cameron Coming Back For A True Terminator 3? With Deadpool's Tim Miller?!

22 January 2017 9:27 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Forget Avatar. If there is one franchise that many fans really want filmmaker James Cameron to return to, it’s The Terminator. This film series has had one heck of a ride, no doubt about that. After two amazing movies that remain recognized as milestone achievements in cinematic history, we were given a mediocre third film, an okay TV series, and a terrible fourth film. Just last year, James Cameron himself talked up Terminator Genisys as the true successor to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and that film turned out to be as much of a train wreck as the last one, despite having all the best intentions.

However, an interesting report from Deadline states that James Cameron will be regaining the rights to The Terminator in 2019, and that he is in the process of “godfathering a new iteration of the film that might finally get it right.” That’s right. »
