Mexico’s Anima Studios Leaps into Virtual Reality (Exclusive)

18 July 2017 4:34 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Latin America’s most prominent animation house Anima Studios has made its first foray into virtual reality with “Cantinflas Presents: The Time Machine,” a seven-minute animated Vr short that plays during a ride at the Selva Magica Amusement Park in Guadalajara, Mexico. The Mexico City-based animation company developed and supervised the production of the Vr ride in collaboration with amusement park giant Ventura Entertainment. German Vr ride companies Ambient Entertainment and Vr Coaster were also partners on the project.

“As our first virtual reality project, we had the amazing opportunity to work in such a different and powerful medium and explore its many possibilities,” said Anima COO Jose C. Garcia de Letona. “It was ideal for our first venture into Vr as there’s no need for other devices aside from the special glasses provided by the ride,” said Garcia.

“Having in the short feature such an emblematic character as Cantinflas is an honor by itself,” he »

‘Selfish,’ ‘Mom,’ ‘Hedgehog’ to Bow at Annecy’s Mifa TV Pitches

14 June 2017 11:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Annecy, France —  “Mom Hurries Home,” “Selfish” and “The Tales of the Hedgehog” feature among eight projects at an Annecy Mifa TV Pitches session which looks to have grown in importance and quality over recent years.

This year, 136 projects were submitted for a maximum of eight slots, said Mifa projects head Geraldine Baché, adding that among all the Mifa Pitches’ categories, the TV Special & Series has grown the most in these last few years.

“Due to the quantity of projects we receive, I can honestly confirm that quality has also much improved,” Bache added, saying that Mifa received projects from all over the world with a personal identity and a strong personality. “Most are innovative but definitely try to match market demand, which is quiet new in fact!”

Fielding different demands from broadcasters, Mifa has consciously created a session, taking place June 15, with a notable diversity in projects’ geographical origin, genre and primary target. »

Review: "World Without End" (1956) Warner Archive Blu-ray Release

14 June 2017 10:05 AM, PDT | | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Hank Reineke

There’s enough cross-plot evidence to suggest that some ideas woven into World Without End (Allied Artists, 1956) were based in part on H.G. Wells’ classic 1895 novel The Time Machine. Wells’ immortal tale would, of course, soon follow the less-celebrated World Without End as a lavish, big-screen Hollywood feature of 1960. Though director-writer Edward Bernds readily admitted to familiarity with Wells’ The Time Machine, he insisted his screenplay was a wholly original creation. Though the similarities between the two works cannot be discounted, Bernds refutation has merit. Certainly modern science-fiction’s fascinations with time and space travel were hardly of the abstract, and most certainly predated Wells’ own literary musings on the subject.

That said, Bernds World Without End is of its own time and primarily a stereotypical 1950s Cold War-era vehicle. It’s a call for a return to reason and détente in the decade following the game-changing horrors of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. »

Death Line aka Raw Meat

13 June 2017 12:37 PM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

This early gore-horror picture has a remarkable emphasis on human values, believe it or not, with a ‘monster’ that nevertheless is a paragon of loving gentleness. Add Donald Pleasance as a surly, posh-hating police inspector, and the shock value makes the Hammer films of the early ’70s taste like weak tea.

In 1972, making a horror film was a safe way to start a career: almost anything screen-able could get a release, and if your show had enough shock value, it might even get positive critical attention. »

Rescuing the Runes: The Almost-Lost Original Long Cut of Night of the Demon

20 May 2017 10:29 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »


— A Savant Guest Article by Wayne Schmidt

Fires, clerical errors, and lab mistakes have caused films to become unavailable in good quality, or even lost forever. Studio indifference also allows vintage films to be ignored to death, while their negatives rot in cans. So it’s great to hear a ‘lost film’ story with a happy ending.

A note from Glenn Erickson: About twenty years ago, when I worked at MGM, I had some contact with MGM’s in house Film and Video Services team, and learned how the department maintained the MGM library of film titles. My old friend Wayne Schmidt was at the time over at Sony, and busy doing much the same work for that studio’s older Columbia film library. Naturally, the first thing I asked about was the status of both studios’ Hammer film collections!

Wayne had also been a video editor, and even »

World Without End

14 March 2017 10:49 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

“Thru the Time Barrier, 552 years Ahead… Roaring To the Far Reaches of Titanic Terror, Crash-Landing Into the Nightmare Future!”    … and as Daffy Duck says, “And it’s good, too!” Allied Artists sends CinemaScope and Technicolor on a far-out timewarp to a place where the men are silly and the women are… very female. Hugh Marlowe stars but the picture belongs to hunky Rod Taylor and leggy Nancy Gates.

ABC's Time After Time: Do You Plan to Watch Week After Week?

5 March 2017 7:59 PM, PST | | See recent news »

You can’t change the channel these days without stumbling upon a time-travel show. The newest one to join the craze: ABC’s cat-and-mouse thriller Time After Time, an adaptation of the 1979 movie of the same name, which itself was based on Karl Alexander’s novel.

Time After Time Is Mashing Up All of H.G. Wells' Greatest Hits for the Ultimate Book Report

3 March 2017 2:30 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Calling all lit majors! A cat-and-mouse race through time featuring literary icon H.G. Wells and none other than Jack the Ripper may be the jumping off point for ABC's new series Time After Time, but, unlike the 1979 book and movie of the same name that the upcoming thriller is based on, The Time Machine won't be the only Wells novel to inspire the proceedings. "I've always loved this project. I've just been a big fan of [director] Nicholas Meyer from the word go, growing up. That movie is what led me to actually read H.G. Wells," series creator Kevin Williamson told reporters at a recent screening of the premiere. "I'd always sort of stayed away from his writing. I found it »

Arrow Midseason Trailer & Are The CW DC Shows Doomed To Fail? Our Readers Answer

18 January 2017 2:46 PM, PST | | See recent LRM Online news »

Earlier today I posted a Supergirl pic where Kevin Smith showed a new Dc alien, and now I have an extended Arrow trailer for you. Check it out!

So here we see the return of Laurel Dinah Lance, The Black Canary, or so it seems. I think by now we all know it is actually Black Siren, which is Flash's Earth-2 version of Laurel that is actually an evil doppelganger. Flash created a Multiverse, and it has allowed us to bring back long dead characters or alternate versions of themselves, typically evil, to pop-in for an episode or two. We have already seen 6'ish Harrison Wells, which is a play on H.G. Wells name (the author of The Time Machine), and there is no telling just how many characters could be brought back. In fact, we could see Reverse-Flash die and the multiverse could have infinite versions of him and »

ABC's Time After Time: How Hard Is It Being TV's Sixth Time Travel Show?

10 January 2017 3:05 PM, PST | | See recent news »

The producers of Time After Time are Wells aware that when the ABC drama makes its debut, it will be (conservatively speaking) TV’s sixth current series with a time travel element.

That, however, makes things a bit easier, says executive producer Kevin Williamson (The Following), seeing as viewers are just a bit more likely to be familiar with “time ripples,” the Butterfly Effect and such.
