Pan’s Totally Normal Flying Boats Look Fun

18 May 2015 11:34 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This second Pan trailer is, in truth, fairly similar to the first, but the one major difference is there's a lot more boat action here. Look at these boats go. It's like the CGI from Life of Pi shook hands with the chase action in The Fast and the Furious and said, "Hey, we should definitely have babies, and they should definitely be chase scenes involving boats that hate water." Gnarly. Here's hoping Vin Diesel pulls a Matt Damon–from-Interstellar, appears out of nowhere, and says that he's the captain now. »

Scorsese’s 'Silence' to wrap in Taiwan

5 May 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Martin Scorsese’s Silence, based on Japanese author Shusaku Endo’s novel, will wrap on May 15 after filming for 14 weeks in Taiwan.

Scorsese, the film’s producer Emma Koskoff and actor Andrew Garfield attended a press event in Taipei on May 4, along with Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je and Catchplay chairman Harvey Chang.

The film received subsidy and production support from Taipei City government and Taipei Film Commission and was also partly financed by Catchplay, which is the film’s distributor in Taiwan.

Scorsese said that as a Catholic he was drawn to Endo’s novel, about a Jesuit missionary in 17th Century Japan, which tackles the issue of God’s silence in the face of suffering. He first wrote a draft in 1992 but it has taken 15 years to bring the project to the screen.

Although the novel is set in Japan, Scorsese explained that he was introduced to shooting in Taiwan by Ang Lee, who filmed »

Martin Scorsese’s ‘Silence’ To Wrap In Taiwan

4 May 2015 9:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Martin Scorsese is in the final few days of shooting “Silence,” his historical drama about faith and religion. Some 14 weeks of photography in Taipei will be completed May 15.

At a press event in Taipei on Monday, Scorsese spoke of the long journey to making the film, which is based on Shusaku Endo’s novel “Silence” about God’s silence in the face of human suffering. Scorsese had prepared a draft of the screenplay as early as 1992, but said that the origins were deeper still.

“The subject matter presented by Shusaku Endo was in my life since I was very, very young. I was very much involved in religion, I was raised in a strong Catholic family,” Scorsese said.

While the book is set in 17th century Japan, Scorsese located the production in Taiwan, following an introduction by Ang Lee. It was entirely shot in the territory with various locations in Taipei (Yangmingshan, »

Why 1980 Was the Best Year in Movie History

27 April 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

All week long our writers will debate: Which was the greatest film year of the past half century.  Click here for a complete list of our essays. How to decide in the grand scheme of things which film year stands above all others?  History gives us no clear methodology to unravel this thorny but extremely important question. Is it the year with the highest average score of movies?  So a year that averages out to a B + might be the winner over a field strewn with B’s, despite a few A +’s. Or do a few masterpieces lift up a year so far that whatever else happened beyond those three or four films is of no consequence? Both measures are worthy, and the winner by either of those would certainly be a year not to be sneezed at. But I contend the only true measure of a year’s »

Ang Lee's Next Movie Will Use an Even Higher Frame Rate than 'The Hobbit'

23 April 2015 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Ang Lee is one of a small number of filmmakers we trust with seemingly gimmicky innovations. His adaptation of Life of Pi provided us with further reason to accept that 3D can be an artistic tool and not just a means for Hollywood to increase ticket prices. Now, we can put our faith in the concept of high frame rate, as Lee's next feature, the 3D war movie Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk, will reportedly be shot digitally at 4K resolution and 120 frames per second.  You are probably now thinking of Peter Jackson, another filmmaker we've tended to trust with new cinema technology. He shot all three Hobbit movies at 48 frames per second, but after viewers reacted negatively to its employment on the first installment, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey...

Ang Lee Confirms He's Already Shooting His Next Film in 120Fps 3D

22 April 2015 8:00 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

We all thought we were done with High Frame Rate projection after The Hobbit, but it looks like that's not the case. During Sony Picture's annual presentation at CinemaCon this week, director Ang Lee appeared in a recorded video from the set of his new film based on the book Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk. He talked about how making Life of Pi in 3D taught him how remarkable of a filmmaking tool 3D is. He has since explored new filmmaking technology even further, deciding to shoot this next film at 120 Fps (frames per second) and in 3D (again). No footage was shown, and they didn't mention anything else about it being released in Hfr, but it sounds like Lee is now getting into Hfr after James Cameron and Peter Jackson. It was also mentioned this is the first time any film has been filmed fully in 120Fps. Cameron and »

Ang Lee Shooting ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ at 120 Frames Per Second, in 3D

22 April 2015 7:51 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ang Lee is shooting all of military drama “Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk” at the ultra-high frame rate of 120 frames per second and in 3D.

Lee discussed the film — his first since he won an Oscar for directing “Life of Pi” — as part of Sony’s CinemaCon presentation on Wednesday in a special video message from the set in Georgia. He said it will be the first film ever shot entirely at the 120 frames per second rate, which is aimed at immersing viewers in modern-day military combat that soldiers experience.

Sony executives have been touting the notion that they are pushing ahead on the technical front in filming. Lee had previously announced that he is using the Sony F65 camera and shooting at the ultra-high frame rate — more than twice the rate at which Peter Jackson shot the last two Hobbit films.
