"The Chair" On DVD- February 17, 2015

11 February 2015 9:57 AM, PST | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

From Anchor Bay Entertainment, Sneak Peek the Starz Original Filmmaking Experiment, "The Chair", a followup to Project Greenlight', available on a 5-disc DVD Set, containing all 10 episodes and 2 feature films, February 17, 2015:

"...'The Chair' charts the path of two directors through the process of bringing their first feature to the screen - each armed with the same script. The series documents - with an unflinching eye - the creation, marketing and theatrical release of the two adaptations. Both directors are given the same budget, and both versions use locations in the same city. Through online voting, the audience determines which director will be awarded $250,000.

"The screenplay itself is a coming-of-age feature length comedy that chronicles the first homecoming on Thanksgiving weekend by a handful of college freshman who are fumbling towards adulthood, written by Dan Schoffer.

With actor Zachary Quinto ('Star Trek') and his producing partners, »

'Halloween' is being 'recalibrated': 5 things I'd like to see in the horror reboot

9 February 2015 7:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

With the exception of Rick Rosenthal's reasonably effective "Halloween II," I'm mostly indifferent to the "Halloween" films that followed John Carpenter's 1978 original -- a list that includes Rob Zombie's 2007 and 2009 entries in the series. As Carpenter himself once said: "I felt that there was no more story after the original." Hard to disagree! But because Hollywood is Hollywood and there's money to be made, the producers are now "recalibrating" the franchise with "Saw" writers Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Am I keen on this idea? Not particularly! But since they're gonna make this regardless of what I think, here are five things I'd like Dunstan, Melton and the producers to consider when crafting the new installment. 1. Take a cue from the subtlety of Carpenter's original One of the main reasons I love the original "Halloween" is that it's actually understated -- hell, even elegant. It's a slasher, »

As a result of 20th Century Fox re-arranging its release slate for the next couple of years, the untitled Bourne sequel set up at Universal is making a move. The fifth chapter in the Bourne series will now be delayed by a further two weeks, shifting its initial release from July 15th to July 29th, 2016. Filling a prime slot vacated by Matt Reeves’ next Planet Of The Apes sequel – which will now open in July 2017 – the next entry in the amnesiac spy saga is destined to reunite franchise alums Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon.

After years of the duo refusing to consider another sequel, they eventually reached a decision to resurrect Jason Bourne and Damon himself broadcast the news on his Project Greenlight show. Director Greengrass and leading man Damon originally exited the series following the third instalment, The Bourne Ultimatum in 2007. Despite Universal’s enthusiasm to continue forward with further sequels, »
