'Snowpiercer' (2014) Movie Review

25 June 2014 11:56 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Imagine, in an effort to stamp out global warming, humans shot a chemical compound into the atmosphere that not only stopped global warming, but froze the entire Earth, killing ever living organism on it (oops)... every living organism except for those that survived on a train known as Snowpiercer. The Snowpiercer is a train built by a multi-billionaire who doubted the chemical shot into the atmosphere would solve anything and wanted to guarantee his survival, survival that depended on a perfectly balanced ecosystem, an ecosystem he designed and maintains on said train with tracks that manage to circle the globe. All that remains of humanity, that survived the frozen apocalypse, now lives aboard the Snowpiercer. Director Joon-ho Bong (The Host), along with Kelly Masterson (Before the Devil Knows You're Dead), has adapted the French graphic novel "Le Transperceneige" for the big screen, beginning with a short prelude defining the events »

'Titanic,' 'Seinfeld' top best of '90s poll

25 June 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Ahh, nostalgia. Between VH1’s I Love the 2000s and National Geographic’s The ’90s: The Last Great Decade?, it appears that there’s been a whole lot of looking back at our fairly recent history. But how do people really feel about the turn of the century?

Through a survey, Nat Geo gauged America’s attitudes toward the ’90s specifically, asking whether it really was “The Last Great Decade.” Here are the pop culture results:

Titanic (21%) finished in a statistical tie for best movie of the decade with Forrest Gump (22%). Leonardo DiCaprio was voted the most crush-worthy male celebrity with 28% of the votes, »

What are the 36 Most Expensive Movies Ever Madec

21 June 2014 9:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Update: Thanks to a reader I've added Speed 2 to the list, if you find more that should be added let me know and we'll see if we can make this a little more accurate. In today's Hollywood, movies don't seem to exist first and foremost as pieces of entertainment or as even great stories to be told. Yes, you could argue that as far back as the studio system has existed it's been a "business first" attitude, but a focus on budgets, box office and salaries seems to be at an all-time high. If you disagree, fair enough, but as a willing participant in such coverage I'm also somewhat ashamed to admit I think the heavy focus negatively effects the kind of movies we get. So, what am I going to doc I'm going to give it even more coverage. Business Insider has posted a list of the 30 most expense »

Ajay Devgns film being shot by Titanics cinematographer

20 June 2014 3:33 AM, PDT | BollywoodHungama | See recent BollywoodHungama news »

Ajay Devgn has taken on a new avatar. Having acted in socially relevant films like Zakham and The Legend Of Bhagat Singh and directed a film on Alzeihmers (U Me Aur Hum) Devgn has now become the messiah of globally acceptable meaningful movies. His production Parched set in Rajasthan is being shot by no less than Russel Carpenter. It is being made as two separate films in English and Hindi. The English version would be sent by Devgn to various festivals across the world.

Russell Carpenter was the cinematographer of James Cameron's Titanic. Interestingly the film is co-produced by a very accomplished Indian cinematographer Aseem Bajaj who has shot Devgn's Golmaal films.

Aseem's wife Leena Yadav (who directed Ben Kingsley and Amitabh Bachchan in Teen Patti) directs Parched.

"But such realistic cinema should be able to reach a wide audience. Gulaab Gang was so brilliantly marketed. But one of »

Which movie makes you cry the most? Digital Spy staff picks

19 June 2014 5:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

In case you haven't heard, The Fault in Our Stars is kind of a sad film. The reaction across the pond (where the film has been out for a couple of weeks) has essentially been one long, drawn out ugly-cry, to the point where Slate have even released a handy guide to keeping your eye make-up intact.

Even the movie's stars Ansel Elgort, Nat Wolff and Laura Dern aren't immune, as they admitted in our video interview. We also asked them what other films have made them cry, which sparked a discussion back in the office about the most effective tearjerkers of all time.

Below, Digital Spy staffers reveal the films that are guaranteed to leave them a weeping mess.

Good Will Hunting – Emma Dibdin, Features Editor

While prototypical inspirational teacher movie Dead Poets' Society is arguably a more obvious pick, Robin Williams's similarly inspirational performance here as wry, »

From ‘Harry Potter’ to ‘Hunger Games,’ How Theme Parks Have Caught Franchise Fever

5 June 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Lionsgate investors who presumed there was no more value to wring out of “The Hunger Games” beyond its final installment next year got a nice surprise last week. CEO Jon Feltheimer announced a new way to capitalize on the mega-franchise: A touring exhibition devoted to the movie will kick off next summer, the first element of a bigger plan aimed at putting the studio in the theme park business.

Indeed, blockbuster entertainment franchises are getting integrated into the parks with increasing frequency. Universal Studios Hollywood unveiled Despicable Me: Minion Mayhem in April, expanded with Super Silly Fun Land, the seaside carnival featured in the film. Up next: Universal is teaming with Warner Bros. to open Diagon Alley, a faithful re-creation of the London location from the “Harry Potter” films, on June 20.

James Cameron Is Loosely Attached to the 'Terminator' Reboot

2 June 2014 1:09 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Filmmaker James Cameron certainly has plenty on his plate at the moment, prepping three sequels to his record-breaking blockbuster Avatar. However, the filmmaker's influence can also be seen in the upcoming Terminator reboot, which started principal photography back in April. During a Q&A session at the Hero Complex Film Festival, James Cameron revealed that he is "loosely attached" to the project, without receiving credit, to make sure that the movie stays true to the character, while hinting that Arnold Schwarzenegger's T-800 character is at the "front and center" of the movie.

"When Megan Ellison bought the rights, she asked me if I wanted to be involved. I said 'Well look. I don't mind standing behind the curtain and whispering like some court advisory in 15th century Italy or something.' My goal in that was not to insinuate myself artistically but to try to make sure they stayed »

Cameron On His Role In "Terminator: Genesis"

2 June 2014 12:56 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Though he's not officially a part of it, James Cameron revealed at the Los Angeles Times' 2014 Hero Complex Film Festival this week that he had a small hand in the upcoming "Terminator" reboot.

At last report, the film isn't a straight up reboot. Rather, it's pulling a move similar to 2009's "Star Trek" reboot and this month's "X-Men: Days of Future Past" - using time travel elements to effectively reset the franchise's continuity without invalidating what came before, effectively creating an alternate universe for the new films to play in.

A key element of that is Arnold Schwarzenegger, returning as a T-800 whose 'bio-exoskeleton' ages in the film so ultimately it resembles the actor's current 67-year old physical form. It's Arnold's front-and-center involvement that Cameron had a hand in. He says (via Slashfilm):

James Cameron considering Terminator 2 3D re-release

2 June 2014 11:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

James Cameron has said that he is considering re-releasing Terminator 2 in 3D.

Speaking at the Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Film Festival this weekend, Cameron was asked by an audience member whether he would release the Terminator films in 3D, reports Slash Film.

The filmmaker ruled out releasing the first film in 3D, saying: "[The Terminator] - I don't think so because you could upgrade it to 3D but it's still pretty gritty, available light photography, low budget film-making.

"We'd spend more converting it to 3D than we spent on the movie. That feels a little imbalanced to me."

However, Cameron said there was a greater possibility of re-releasing the sequel.

"But Terminator 2 is a more polished film and, I think, it has a kind of timeless appeal," he explained.

"If there was someone who was interested in doing that, and we could make a good case for the business model like, »

James Cameron Wrote All Three ‘Avatar’ Sequels At Once

2 June 2014 10:45 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Filmmaker James Cameron crossed the $2 billion mark for a second time in 2009: his “Avatar” behemoth also went on to be become the highest grossing film of all time (right behind his “Titanic,” the second highest grossing film of all time, but to be fair it was only around $1.8 billion when it first came out and grew upon re-release). So you might think he’s lost a little momentum with his upcoming “Avatar” sequels, but it’s more likely that Cameron has nothing to prove these days and would rather get it right rather than rush into production (novel thinking in Hollywood these days). The reason Cameron has taken so long? Well, he wanted to shoot all three “Avatar” films back to back to back. And so, getting three screenplays to where they need to be is not something one does overnight. How did he do it? During this weekend’s L. »

Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D Could Happen, Says James Cameron

2 June 2014 10:18 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The Los Angeles Times Hero Complex Film Festival is turning out to be quite an exciting event for fans of classic sci-fi. Earlier today, we brought you news of Sigourney Weaver’s comments that she “could imagine” returning to the Alien franchise for a fifth installment in the future, and now we have news that James Cameron is interested in revisiting one of his classics too – albeit in a slightly less exciting way. If comments he made to an inquisitive audience member are to be believed, a 3D release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day is a definite possibility.

After all, Cameron previously converted his gargantuan disaster romance Titanic to 3D, a move which paid off in spades for the acclaimed director. When asked about the possibility of seeing 3D conversions for The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Cameron said there weren’t any plans, but then added the following: »

James Cameron Talks Terminator: Genesis Which He's Loosely Attached To

2 June 2014 8:45 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

There's no argument that director James Cameron brought us the best Terminator films that have been made. None of the other movies have lived up to the awesomeness that he brought audiences. A new trilogy of films is currently in development, and the first one, Terminator: Genesis, is currently shooting. 

During a recent Q&A at the Hero Complex Film Festival, Cameron talked about his past and current involvement with franchise. He revealed that he's loosely attached to the upcoming films, but he won't receive any credit for them. One of his biggest contributions to the films was to ensure that the story will focus on Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s character.

Here's what Cameron had to say at the event. Thanks to /Film for the quote.

I pay attention to [the new Terminator films] but I’m not terribly concerned about it one way or the other. I’ve had to let it go. There »

James Cameron Explains How He Almost Directed Series of Spider-Man Films

2 June 2014 5:18 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

During the La Times Hero Complex Film Festival, James Cameron spoke about a bunch of topics, including how close he came to directing a "Spider-Man" film, which was right before he directed "Titanic." "Spider-Man was kind of going nowhere," he explained. "Canon, a very low budget film company back in the 80s, had it briefly. Nobody had really done anything with it. Marvel characters in general weren't being developed very well at that time." Cameron continued: "I got Carolco Pictures to buy Spider-Man. I was going to launch that as a series of films. I wrote quite an extensive treatment, I think eighty or ninety pages long. And then again when Carolco collapsed, those rights were in play and I didn't pursue it because I was on to 'Titanic' and I was doing other things." He went on to say that just because he was interested in Spider-Man, »

James Cameron on his attempt to make a Spider-Man movie

1 June 2014 11:57 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in the early 90s, coming off the success of The Terminator, Aliens, The Abyss and the blockbuster Terminator 2: Judgement Day, director James Cameron turned his attention towards the fledgling superhero genre and Marvel’s Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man. Ultimately, he would fail to get his Spider-Man movie off the ground, paving the way for Sony to acquire the rights and launch the first series of movies under Sam Raimi, and now during a Q&A at the L.A. Times Hero Complex Film Festival, Cameron has spoken briefly about his attempt to bring the wall-crawler to the screen:

Spider-Man. Spider-Man was kind of going nowhere,” states Cameron (via Collider). “Canon — a very low budget film company back in the 80s — had had it briefly. Nobody had really done anything with it. Marvel characters in general weren’t being developed very well at that time. I got Carolco Pictures to buy Spider-Man. »
