Immersed in Movies: Uli Hanisch and Hugh Bateup Talk 'Cloud Atlas' Production Design

19 December 2012 10:30 AM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

While "Cloud Atlas" may be the most polarizing movie of the year (winding up on both year-end best and worst lists), there's no denying its ambition and beauty: it's the ultimate time travel movie about connecting and reconnecting and grappling with free will and destiny. And the production design plays a crucial role in defining the six periods that overlap the 500-year ripple. However, it made sense both economically and logistically to split the "Cloud Atlas" production into two units, with designer Hugh Bateup ("The Matrix Reloaded," "The Matrix Revolutions," "Speed Racer") working with Andy and Lana Wachowski and Uli Hanisch collaborating with Tom Tykwer ("Heaven," "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer," "Three"). Team Wachowski was responsible for Victorian 1849 in the South Pacific, 2144 in Neo Seoul, and the cataclysmic aftermath of 2321 (paired with the 2346 epilogue). Team Tykwer was »

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2

16 November 2012 7:00 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2

Directed by: Bill Condon

Cast: Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson, Taylor Lautner, Peter Facinelli, Billy Burke, Michael Sheen

Running Time: 1 hr 55 mins

Rating: PG-13

Release Date: November 16, 2012

Plot: After the birth of Edward and Bella’s daughter, Renesmee, the Volturi feel threatened. Now the Cullens and the wolfpack must gather friends together in order to protect the family.

Who’S It For? Not only will the Twi-hards be desperate to say goodbye, the ones who are skeptically dragged along should have a pretty good time as well.

Overall

It’s not a vampire movie. It’s a superhero B-movie. Yeah, I know. I was surprised too.

We are saying goodbye to one of the most beloved movie franchises of all time. It’s probably the most hated as well. I read the first novel and thought it was mindless entertainment. The movies have always varied from “Ok” to “Not bad. »

DVD Release: Burning Man

1 November 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

DVD Release Date: Nov. 27, 2012

Price: DVD $24.98

Studio: IFC

Up and coming British actor Matthew Goode (Leap Year) stars in the acclaimed Australian movie Burning Man.

Written and directed by Jonathan Teplitzky (Better Than Sex), Burning Man tells the story of Tom (Goode), an English chef at a chic restaurant with a beautiful wife (Bojana Novakovic, Drag Me to Hell) and son. After a tragedy, Tom’s life falls apart and he turns to a series of sexual encounters with different woman to drown out his sorrows, neglecting his family and endangering his job.

The drama, which isn’t rated, also stars Rachel Griffiths (TV’s Brothers & Sisters), Essie Davis (The Matrix Revolutions) and Kerry Fox (Shallow Grave).

Burning Man was not screened in theaters in the U.S., so the DVD represents the film’s Stateside premiere.

Still, critics who did see the movie praised it. New York Times‘ Andy Webster said, »

Looper: 5 Things That Made It Best Film Of 2012

12 October 2012 12:46 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It is the case in this age of social media, television, Internet and an unremitting desire to make as much money as physically possible that it’s rare that a film doesn’t come to us with the billing that it will redefine cinema; push the boundaries of how we think and make us wet ourselves with excitement. 2012 has been a year rife with films just like this, be it one film trying to out superhero the other, another trying to out franchise the other or another reboot trying to make audiences cry more than others: we’ve had plenty of films with promises that aren’t fulfilled. Lucky for the disillusioned, Looper appeared as if from thin air to meet every expectation we were promised, and then some. Looper was pitched as an intelligent sci-fi that would stamp Rian Johnson into the minds of mainstream cinema goers, compete with »

Image Conscious: A conversation with visual effects supervisor Randy Goux

3 October 2012 12:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with visual effects supervisor Randy Goux about his career...

“I’m from Cape Cod, Massachusetts,” states Method Studios Visual Effects Supervisor Randy Goux.  “My father is a musician and an artist.  I see a lot of what I have become from what I grew up with; there was a lot of observing and letting things affect you first before you put your stamp on things.”  It was by osmosis that the young salesman for a high end visual effects software got involved with the VFX industry.  “I ended up becoming one of the demo artists for Alias/Wavefront when I was 21.  From there I wanted to make movies.”  He notes, “I went along for the ride, started knowing how to do stuff well and working in studios, and here I am.”  Contemplating what is a great visual effect, Goux asks, “What do you say when someone puts »

Exclusive: Kimble Rendall Talks Bait 3D Blu-ray

17 September 2012 11:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Kimble Rendall talks about his bloody horror-thriller Bait 3D, available on Blu-ray 3D and DVD September 18

Most directors don't become filmmakers overnight, with many cutting their teeth working in other capacities before ascending to the director's chair. Australian helmer Kimble Rendall is one such director, serving as an editor and producer before making his directorial debut with the 2000 thriller Cut. He also served as second unit director on blockbusters such as The Matrix Reloaded, The Matrix Revolutions, I, Robot, Ghost Rider, Underworld 3: The Rise of The Lycans, and last year's Killer Elite. He returns to the helm with Bait 3D, debuting on Blu-ray 3D and DVD September 18. I recently had the chance to speak with Kimble Rendall over the phone about this new release. Here's what he had to say.

I read there were a few different versions of the script going around before you became involved. I »

Shock Interview: Bait 3D Director Kimble Rendall

12 September 2012 1:48 PM, PDT | shocktillyoudrop.com | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

The last time Australian filmmaker Kimble Rendall was at the helm of a feature-length horror film was the 2000 slasher film Cut, which featured the likes of Molly Ringwald and Kylie Minogue.  But make no mistake, he's been quite busy since then working as a second unit director on films like The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, I, Robot, Ghostrider and Underworld: Rise of the Lycans.

Rendall is combining his experience in body count horror and high-caliber action fare with Bait 3D, his super fun sophomore feature outing in the director's chair opening September 14th in limited release and coming to DVD/Blu-ray September 18th.

Starring Sharni Vinson, Julian McMahon, Xavier Samuel, Alex Russell and Phoebe Tonkin, the film concerns a supermarket that is flooded after a tsunami and the remaining survivors who are trapped inside with two great white sharks.

Can James Cameron save Avatar sequels from Matrix meltdown?

12 September 2012 4:09 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

If he's not careful, the director's back-to-back sci-fi sequels could end up bloated, directionless and painfully self-important like many a film franchise before them

By the end of this year, James Cameron will have finished writing the scripts for both Avatar 2 and Avatar 3. As has been widely reported, these movies will then be filmed concurrently with the first one tentatively set for release in 2015. It's a risky strategy: plenty of other film franchises have attempted back-to-back sequel productions and, more often than not, at least one of those films has ended up being actively terrible.

Think Back to the Future 3, or the endless finale to the last Lord of the Rings film. Or Pirates of the Caribbean 3, so long and impenetrable that watching it feels like spending a month in a Chinese prison. Or either Matrix sequel, both of which could easily vie for the title of Worst Anything That Has Ever Existed. »

Indy 4, Star Wars Ep1 Are Biggest Letdowns

27 August 2012 12:17 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Total Film has taken a poll and assembled a list of the Top 50 most disappointing movies of all time - films for which there was a certain or even considerable amount of expectation and which, frankly, turned out to be fairly terrible.

Practically every household name filmmaker is on this list - Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Stanley Kubrick, Francis Ford Coppola, David Fincher, Oliver Stone, Peter Jackson, Quentin Tarantino, Michael Mann, Steven Soderbergh, Tim Burton, Sam Raimi, the Wachowskis, M. Night Shyamalan, Ridley Scott, Cameron Crowe, Ang Lee, Zack Snyder, Roland Emmerich, Robert Rodriguez, Kevin Smith and many more.

Topping the list was Spielberg's "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" with Lucas' "Star Wars: Episode One - The Phantom Menace" not far behind. Both were returns almost twenty years later to franchises that were the gold standard of many who grew up in the late 70's and 80's, »

25 August 2012 3:05 AM, PDT | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

TotalFilm magazine put together a list of Top 50 most disappointing movies of all time, taking a look at films that were highly-anticipated, but turned out to be pretty awful. Topping the list is "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," with the magazine stating that it had all the ingredients in place, including Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and Harrison Ford. But in the end, the film was nothing more than some CGI, a nuclear fridge moment, and aliens. Also on the list are "Prometheus," "Star Wars: Episode One - The Phantom Menace," "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "Godfather Part 3." Take a look at all fifty choices below and let us know if you agree with the selection. 50. The Tourist (2010) 49. Congo (1995) 48. Shrek The Third (2007) 47. Speed Racer (2008) 46. The Lovely Bones (2009) 45. The Lady In The Water (2006) 44. The Avengers (1998) 43. Ghostbusters 2 (1989) 42. Alexander (2004) 41. Public Enemies (2009) 40. Jennifer's Body (2009) 39.

Make Death Matter and Give Characters Their Due

20 August 2012 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Death is a profound thing. It has long been utilized in the art of storytelling to make the fiercest of impacts. From the first written work of fiction (“Beowulf”) to the works of Shakespeare to the films of Uwe Boll, death has been ever present. When handled correctly, a death can be a haunting memory in a film, a momentous moment that effects the viewer on a very real and very emotional moment. Let’s cut to the jump so we can discuss a lot of spoilery stuff and bitch about how a thoughtless death is cruel to the character and an affront to the audience. The reverse of this coin, and what’s got me riled, is when a beloved or respected character is given the shaft. A poor death. A worthless death, one that doesn’t advance the character or embody him, but rather disposes of him. It seems of late this has been happening »

Will ‘The Hobbit”s new tech be enough to satisfy audiences?

2 August 2012 7:48 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

As a rule, I don’t revisit a subject (well, not often), but a recent USA Today story by Brian Truitt spurred me to go back to a piece I wrote last month (http://www.soundonsight.org/when-great-leaps-forward-arent-or-the-art-of-looking-bad/) triggered by a Washington Post story about Peter Jackson’s screening of 10 minutes of his upcoming The Hobbit:  An Unexpected Journey at CinemaCon.

Jackson is shooting Hobbit in a new digital 48 frames per second format which gives the image a startling clarity – according to the Post’s Ann Hornaday, maybe a bit too much clarity for some eyes.

Jackson is still pushing the 48 fps format not just because of how it enhances Hobbit, or even as the next big technological advance in filmmaking, but as a matter of industry survival.  Let me quote from Truitt’s story:

When “Great Leaps Forward” Aren’t – Addendum: Thoughts on ‘The Hobbit’

The Dark Knight Rises, and takes Imax with him

24 July 2012 7:03 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Christopher Nolan is singlehandedly transforming the prospects of the biggest picture show of all

It may be that the awful events at the Century 16 multiplex in Aurora, Colorado, will forever cast a shadow over cinema-going. Yet The Dark Knight Rises could also point the way to a brighter future for an increasingly troubled industry. It could help reshape the way we watch movies.

The film includes 72 minutes of footage shot on the Imax system, the most ever for a studio narrative feature. For director Christopher Nolan, that meant working with cumbersome, jitter-sensitive and noisy cameras capable of only three-minute takes and requiring 20 minutes to reload. Still, he's in no doubt that the extra effort was worth it. He believes he has secured in return "the best quality image that has ever been invented".

In an Imax ("image maximum") camera or projector, 70mm film runs sideways, taking up 15 sprocket holes per frame instead of 35mm's four. »

'Hunger Games' Final Chapter 'Mockingjay' Officially Gets Two Films

10 July 2012 2:34 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Since over a year ago, there have been rumors that Lionsgate was looking to split the final chapter of The Hunger Games series, the third book titled Mockingjay, into two films, much like their sister company Summit did with Twilight: Breaking Dawn and Warner Bros. did with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Now the split seems official as Deadline now has release dates for the two-part finale. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part I will hit on November 21st, 2014, and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part II will arrive a year later on November 20th, 2015. My thoughts on the split below. A whole year between the finale seems pretty brutal, but that's exactly what Twilight fans have had to deal with between the Breaking Dawn films. I would prefer a six month wait between them like The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, but I think there's a bigger problem »

James Cameron to shoot three Avatar sequels back-to-back?

27 June 2012 5:44 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We've known for some time that James Cameron planned to follow 2009's mega-blockbuster Avatar by filming two sequels back-to-back, but now it seems that the visionary filmmaker will throw a third into the mix - at least, according to a report over at Showbiz411, who claims that Sigourney Weaver is preparing to film three sequels one after another once she finishes work on the TV drama Political Animals.

Cameron has already stated that he intends to develop three sequels to Avatar - claiming back in May that "I’m in the Avatar business. Period. That’s it. I’m making Avatar, Avatar 2, Avatar 3, maybe Avatar 4, and I’m not going to produce other people’s movies for them" - but this is the first indication that he plans to shoot all three back-to-back. Nevertheless, it should be noted that the article does not quote Weaver directly, so take »

The Wachowski’s Jupiter Ascending Plot Revealed

1 June 2012 10:29 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Andy and Lana Wachowski (creators of The Matrix franchise) are back with their first original movie since “The Matrix Revolutions” in 2003. They’ve since adapted Alan Moore’s “V for Vendetta” as producers, wrote and directed a “Speed Racer” film, and are currently finishing post production on their novel adaptation “Cloud Atlas”. The Wachowski’s have an upcoming original sci-fi film lined up entitled “Jupiter Ascending”, something being referred to as a return to form for the duo.

Vulture posted a detailed plot summary for their latest opus, which sounds more familiar than anyone was expecting. It takes place in a universe where;

“human beings are just the Cro-Magnons, or even the Australopithecines, of what beings can ultimately go on to become in the galaxy. (These) higher forms of life are watching us from other, albeit this time non-meta worlds, but actual, other worlds, as in planets and moons.  These »
