Now that the sequel to Tron: Legacy seems unlikely to ever see the light of day, I suppose we'll have to look elsewhere for our Joseph Kosinski/Jeff Bridges team-up fix. That reunion looks like it will be arriving sooner than we expected with the news that Jeff Bridges has joined the ensemble cast for Kosinski's No Exit, a firefighter film focusing on true story of the Granite...

In tech and gaming we talk a lot about the concept of the “uncanny valley,” which is the idea that the closer a fake human comes to looking like a real human the more uncomfortable it will be to look at — until it’s indistinguishable from the real thing, at which point everything is Ok again. In the world of entertainment, the uncanny valley is nearly always brought up in reference to the way a computer-generated character looks — for example the de-aged Jeff Bridges in “Tron: Legacy or every character in the 2007 “Beowulf” movie. They look real, but »

Tron 3 is no longer in development, so Zayn Malik's "Like I Would" music video will have to suffice. The 23-year-old singer premiered the music video for his latest single overnight, following the releases of "Pillowtalk," "iT's YoU" and "BeFoUr" from his album, Mind of Mine. Though Malik has not confirmed that the video was inspired by 1982's Tron or 2010's Tron-Legacy, it nevertheless feels referential. Like Jeff Bridges' Kevin Flynn, Garett Hedlund's Sam Flynn and Olivia Wilde's Quorra, Malik wears a light-up motocross-inspired suit. And, thanks to the laser light show, Malik would look right at home in Disney's digital universe. Director X— who's »

Magic Sword is one of the more unique acts to find their name in music fans mouths in recent months. The anonymous duo have created an enigmatic presence for themselves by combining genre-bending compositions with comic book folklore, and their new Ep, Legend, sees a return to true form.
Productions akin to what Daft Punk put together for 2010’s Tron: Legacy accompany electric guitar riffs fit for hair metal ballads throughout Legend. The Ep release coincides with that of a comic book of its namesake by the same creator, so it stands to reason that the music is intended to accompany the story of its main character, The Keeper (which also happens to be one of the member’s pseudonyms).
Magic Sword’s debut album, Volume One, came out in 2012 – also with a comic book of the same name. The project gained traction and every copy sold out, necessitating a »

Meet the films sequels that might not be dead, but are certainly stuck in some kind of limbo...
Every now and then, a sequel that appears to have been in the cooker for a while – Zoolander 2, Dumb And Dumber To, Anchorman 2 – finally escapes into the wild. But the journey to the screen can be a very lengthy one, and this little lot are still trying to find their way to your local multiplex…
Disney gambled hard on bringing Dick Tracy to the screen in the summer of 1990, backing the vision of director and star Warren Beatty, and hoping to ape the success that Warner Bros had enjoyed the summer before with Batman. Yet whilst Dick Tracy hit, it didn’t hit too hard. The studio adjusted its-then blockbuster strategy accordingly, and it wouldn’t really be until it got to the likes of »
Fight like hell. This isn't so much a live-action trailer as it is an impressive VFX cinematic trailer, but it's worth featuring anyway. This new trailer is for the latest version of the popular Doom video game and it's made by director Joe Kosinski (aka Joseph Kosinski), the same filmmaker that directed Tron Legacy and Oblivion.

Fire it up below and enjoy some action. This video comes from YouTube (thanks to SlashFilm for the tip). "Celebrate Doom's upcoming launch with our all-new live-action cinematic trailer.

Electronic music in film is key at this event, and if your knowledge of the subject extends little beyond that Daft Punk cameo in Tron: Legacy, it’s a chance to brush up on a history that goes right back to the mid-1930s. Sunday brunch screenings this month include key examples, such as Bride Of Frankenstein and Hitchcock classics Spellbound and The Birds (next month: John Carpenter), and theremin queen Lydia Kavina gives a concert – performing her music for Tim Burton movies such as Mars Attacks! – and introduction to the instrument at St George’s Bristol. Other highlights include a screening of Suede’s new film Night Thoughts accompanied by a Q&A, maverick composer and one-time Pink Floyd collaborator Ron Geesin in conversation, 20s Ukrainian silent film Arsenal with a live score, and a new Frank Zappa concert film.

Joseph Kosinksi is no stranger to making trailers to hype up people. And we're not talking about standard trailers you put together once you're actually done with a movie. We're talking about a package put together out of thin air. That's what he did to land the job directing Tron: Legacy. Disney didn't quite know what they wanted to do with the project, so Kosinski begged them to give him just a little bit of resources to put together a test. The resulting footage blew away the studio and the movie got the green light. Since then Kosinski, who unsurprisingly got his start working in computer graphics, has been able to focus full time on his own feature film projects (his next movie is No Exit, a drama about firefighters), but every now and then he dips a...

However, Joseph Kosinski is no stranger to bringing video games to life in a very cinematic way having directed outstanding commercials for video games like Halo 3 and Gears of War. And […]

“Doom” is stepping up its marketing campaign with a live-action trailer directed by Joseph Kosinski, the filmmaker behind “Tron: Legacy” and Tom Cruise sci-fi movie “Oblivion.” The 60-second clip is little more than a long and violent action sequence full of signature “Doom” monsters. It looks cool, but obviously doesn’t not reflect much of anything about the game aside from, maybe, tone. The video’s description says “the trailer evokes the pillars of ‘Doom”s gameplay: Relentless Combat, Terrifying Demons, and Bad Ass Guns.” Also Read: 'Doom' Video Game Reboot Unveils Bloody Campaign Trailer, Release Date (Video) Bethesda and »

Ready to fight like Hell? Armed with his trusty shotgun and a never-say-die attitude, today’s ferocious cinematic trailer for Doom unleashes id Software’s musclebound space marine, mowing down every abominable hellspawn in his path.
As this is a cinematic sizzle reel, the snippet is more a showcase of Doom‘s stylish world – not to mention the monsters therein – than core gameplay. Even still, directed by Oblivion‘s Joe Kosinski, it’s undeniably an enticing teaser of what’s to come, with Doomguy causing all sorts of chaos as he tears his way through the depths of Hell.
“Fight. Like. Hell. Celebrate Doom’s upcoming launch with our all-new live-action cinematic trailer. Directed by Joe Kosinski (Oblivion, Tron: Legacy), the trailer evokes the pillars of Doom’s gameplay: Relentless Combat, Terrifying Demons, and Bad Ass Guns.”
In anticipation of the shooter’s arrival, a closed beta will take place this coming weekend. »
