New Noah Featurette and a Plethora of Images – Early Reviews Positive

21 March 2014 10:19 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Paramount PicturesNoah movie will finally be released in theaters Friday, March 28th and the first reviews coming in are very positive.

Variety critic Scott Foundas calls director Darren Aronofsky’s film a, “bold, personal, visually extravagant take on the Old Testament tale.” (review)

The Hollywood Reporter’s critic, Todd McCarthy, writes, “Working on by far his biggest budget in the wake of the great global success of Black Swan, Aronofsky bulks up his film not only with naturalistic spectacle but with fantastical elements that evoke both Ray Harryhausen and Peter Jackson; creatures rise up from the sea, a whole forest takes instantaneous shape at Noah’s convenience and there is far more swordplay and fighting than one ever imagined in this story.” (review)

Devin Faraci over at Badass Digest has the best review of the bunch. “And don’t get me started on what God is doing. Noah doesn »

"Avatar" Sequels To Use Extra Deep 3D

16 March 2014 11:55 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Appearing at London's 3D Creative Summit in a pre-recorded interview, "Avatar" director James Cameron is doubling down on 3D for the "Avatar" sequels as he thinks he was "probably too conservative" with its use in the first film.

Cameron says: "I'm going to open up my depth more on the Avatar sequels. In my defence, I thought I might be making a three-hour movie and nobody had ever gone more than 90 minutes so we didn't know if people were going to go crosseyed and have their eyeballs melt. Now we know good stereo is good stereo and you can watch it indefinitely."

Cameron urged filmmakers to 'go nuts' with 3D and praised the three other films that are generally seen as the benchmark for quality 3D presentations - "Life of Pi," Hugo" and "Gravity".

Cameron says: "Incorporate it into the storytelling in ways that aren't gimmicky but are fun and seductive to the eye. »

Film Review: ‘Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart’

16 March 2014 8:52 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A boy born on the coldest day on earth survives only by the grace of a magical ticker in “Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart,” a steampunk-rock musical reverse-engineered from an album by French band Dionysos and the popular tie-in book written by its frontman, Mathias Malzieu. Co-directed by Malzieu and musicvideo helmer Stephane Berla, this charming, yet oddly miscalibrated computer-animated fairy tale combines gothic, Tim Burton-esque elements with a younger-skewing porcelain-doll look, confusing auds as to who’s being targeted exactly. The answer: no one in particular, as Malzieu seems to be making this idiosyncratic, overly precious film mostly for himself.

After saving infant Jack’s life by installing a mechanical apparatus where his frozen heart had been, a well-meaning witch makes clear that he must closely follow three rules or risk irreparably damaging the high-maintenance thingamabob that’s keeping him alive. First, Jack should never touch the hands of his heart. »

James Cameron rallies 3D filmmakers

The Avatar director urged filmmakers to “go nuts” with 3D and predicts the medium will come “roaring back” to the home market.

James Cameron delivered a rallying cry to the film industry in an exclusive pre-recorded interview, screened to a packed audience at London’s 3D Creative Summit.

The director of Avatar urged filmmakers to “go nuts” with 3D and admitted that he was “probably too conservative” on his 3D blockbuster.

“I’m going to open up my depth more on the Avatar sequels,” he revealed. “In my defence, I thought I might be making a three-hour movie and nobody had ever gone more than 90 minutes so we didn’t know if people were going to go crosseyed and have their eyeballs melt. Now we know good stereo is good stereo and you can watch it indefinitely.”

He pointed to the approach of Ang Lee, Martin Scorsese and Alfonso Cuaron who were confident enough to ask questions »

Let's Stop with How Great TV is and How Bad Movies are Nowadays

14 March 2014 1:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Sasha Stone at AwardsDaily.com wrote a piece yesterday headlined "Where the Oscars Go when Television Starts to Lead" and it's an interesting, if not exactly a narrowly focused piece. It largely stems from the success of HBO's "True Detective" that ultimately makes a connection with the the rise in tent pole films in Hollywood and what she perceives to be a defection of great storytellers from feature films to cable programming. Here's a paragraph I found interesting: What will become of the Oscars now that television is doing what movies used to do back in the 1970sc Television is where the artistic courage is happening when it comes to American film narrative. With this, the fourth consecutive year that Best Director went to a man born and educated outside America, one has to start to wonder about what kind of a ship we're building here.

Helmer Jeunet Slams Hollywood’s Approach to 3D at London Creative Summit

12 March 2014 12:50 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Jeunet pulled no punches at the 2014 3D Creative Summit in London March 12 as he criticized Hollywood’s approach to 3D and bemoaned poor-quality exhibition.

“I think Hollywood is killing 3D,” Jeunet told the assembled international industryites on day one of the two-day event. The audience was there to see footage from Jeunet’s first 3D film, “The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet,” above. The outspoken helmer elicited applause as he criticized the use of 3D for fast-cut, action-focused summer blockbusters and also lambasted post-production conversion, leveling direct criticism at Paramount’s “World War Z.”

His stereographer on “T.S. Spivet,” Demetri Portelli, who also handled Martin Scorsese’s “Hugo,” blamed a late decision to convert “World War Z” in post, not allowing the filmmakers to plan for 3D. “A problem is that often the director and cinematographer don’t know they are making a 3D movie, »

In the Disney vs. Warner Bros. attempt to see who can release their version of a live adaptation of The Jungle Book first, Disney is maintaining their lead with in-place director, Jon Favreau, and is now first to the casting mark.

According to Deadline, Idris Elba (Thor: The Dark World) is in talks to be lending his voice to the killer tiger Shere Khan as a VFX character that is being overseen by Rob Legato of Avatar and Hugo.

Warner Bros. continues to lag behind, not having cast anyone nor deciding on a director, though Ron Howard seems to be first pick as we reported previously.

We’ll be sure and keep you posted on the latest for both adaptations. »
