It was over a year ago that we saw the first posters for the latest incarnation of Tarzan. This time we get to see a film both in 3D and shot completely using motion capture (the same effect that was achieved to create films like Avatar).
The latest iteration of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic story will be arriving on the big screen next summer, this time under the direction of Reinhard Klooss (Animals United). Kellan Lutz (Twilight, Immortals) leads the motion-capture cast, alongside Spencer Locke (Resident Evil: Afterlife) as Jane, and Jaime Ray Newman (A Town Called Eureka), Robert Capron (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Mark Deklin (Gcb), and Trevor St. John (One Life to Live).
One of the most classic and revered stories of all time, »

It’s a zombie! It’s a demon! Nope. It’s a Zemon!
The Canadian horror-comedy Dead Before Dawn 3D combines the best of the underworld and the undead in the form of the Zemon, a new breed of monster that’s out to make night a living Hell for a group of college kids thanks to an ancient malevolent curse. Featuring a cast that includes Diary of a Wimpy Kid’s Devon Bostick and the legendary Christopher Lloyd, Dead Before Dawn 3D has the distinct honour of being the first-ever 3D Canadian movie! If you thought Zemons sounded awesomely terrifying before, just wait until you see the monster mash-up in 3D.
We went one-on-one with the movie’s director and star April Mullen, who just happens to be the first ever female director to tackle a 3D movie. Read on to hear all about the birth of Zemons, the talented cast and crew, »

When Jennifer Lawrence landed the role of Katniss Everdeen in the first “The Hunger Games” two years ago, neither she nor the film’s producer, Nina Jacobson, nor financial backer Lionsgate could imagine the magnitude of what would transpire for all of them.
The then-20-year-old actress had already landed on Hollywood’s radar for her brilliant turn as Ree Dolly, a determined Ozark teen searching for her missing father in 2010’s “Winter’s Bone.” But while the critically acclaimed movie earned Oscar nominations for the film and for Lawrence’s performance, it grossed a paltry $6.5 million at the domestic box office.

Jacobson had earned respect as a savvy film executive at Universal, DreamWorks and Disney, but she hadn’t yet set the world afire as an independent producer. And Lionsgate, despite having carved out a respectable niche as a scrappy independent studio, best »

Constantin Films has released the first trailer for their motion-captured/awkwardly animated film Tarzan. Currently playing in Germany and Russia, the English version will star Kellan Lutz (Twilight, Hercules: The Legend Begins), Spencer Locke (Resident Evil, Cougar Town), Robert Capron (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Frankenweenie), Jamie Ray Newman (NCIS, Catch Me If You Can) and Brian Bloom (Tmnt, Saints Row IV). The film finds Tarzan and Jane fighting against an evil CEO who took over Tarzan's parents business after they died in a car crash.
The early concept art was bad enough and the latest trailer supports this idea. The animation is distracting and makes the human characters look strangely inhuman, and although we hear very little dialogue, what we have is hammy and terribly written. Check it out here...

It was only two years ago that 20th Century Fox started taking consumer products a little more seriously, tapping Jeffrey Godsick to expand the way the company exploits its films and TV shows through theme park rides, live events, T-shirts, toys and other merchandise.
That’s not to say the consumer products arm, overseen by 20th Century Fox TV chairmen and CEOs Gary Newman and Dana Walden, had done so badly in focusing largely on “The Simpsons,” “Family Guy” and other TV properties.
The hit animated show has easily been 20th’s biggest moneymaker, with the yellow characters minting a lot of green — more than $4.6 billion from the sale of consumer products alone during the series’ 25-year run. As Bart Simpson would say: Holy cash cow, man!
And 20th still feels there’s more coin to collect. This year, 20th has aggressively gone after a slew of new deals to make sure Homer, »

Chloe Grace Moretz burst onto the scene in 2010 with a standout performance as Hit-Girl in superhero satire Kick-Ass. The young actress promptly followed that with memorable performances in Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Let Me In and the Oscar-nominated Hugo and has since established herself a credible and highly sought after performer in a number of genres.
However, her appearance as the title character in this month’s Carrie – the third film based on the Stephen King novel – just may be the role that makes her a bonafide movie star, just as it served as a breakthrough for Sissy Spacek back in 1976. Moretz already has ...

To mark the release of Treme: Season 3 on September 30th we’ve been given 4 copies to give away on Blu-ray.
From the award-winning writers of The Wire, HBO Home Entertainment announces the 30 September 2013 DVD and Blu-ray release of The Complete Third Season of the two-time Emmy® and Grammy® Awards nominee Treme, following its broadcast on Sky Atlantic. This will also be available to own and watch instantly via blinkbox from 17 June 2013.
Season three begins 25 months after Hurricane Katrina. Crime and corruption are up, culture is being trampled, and the people who matter – the workers, families and dreamers who live here – have had enough.
HBO’s drama series Treme revisits the musicians, chefs, Mardi Gras Indians, and other familiar New Orleans characters who continue to rebuild their lives, their homes and their culture in the aftermath of the 2005 hurricane that caused the near-death of an American city. The series’ focus is still on ordinary people, »
David Bowers? More like David Bow-wow-ers. The Flushed Away, Astro Boy, Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Roderick Rules and Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: Dog Days director is said to be taking on Clifford The Big Red Dog. For those not in the know, it’s about a big red dog named Clifford. Together with his owner Emily Elizabeth, Clifford journeys through life being gigantic and awkward, but always loved.
The books originated back in 1963, and under the watchful eye of Universal Studios, the film will become a CGI/live-action. This probably makes Bowers a grand choice, having worked in both styles over the years. The script comes from Matt Lopez, writer of The Sorcerer’S Apprentice.
We’ll now engage in the painful wait to see who will be cast to voice such a gigantic pup. The late great John Ritter voiced him in the animated series, but »

A feature film adaptation of the popular Clifford the Big Red Dog childrens book series is moving right along, but not without a slight change. When the project was first announced, Universal Pictures planned to make the film in concert with the animated company Illumination Entertainment (Despicable Me, The Lorax). Now The Wrap reports that, though Universal is still moving forward with the pic, Illumination has dropped off and Chris Meledandri is no longer producing. This might have something to do with the fact that the feature is now being envisioned as a live-action project, with the titular dog being the only CG-animated portion (as with Ted and Paul). Nevertheless, movement continues as David Bowers is now in talks to direct from a script by Matt Lopez. Bowers previously helmed the animated features Flushed Away and Astro Boy, as well as two live-action Diary of a Wimpy Kid sequels. No »

HBO’s popular television show Treme: The Complete Third Season picks up two years after Hurricane Katrina has ravaged New Orleans, a time when crime and corruption are on the rise, and outsiders with their own agendas are starting to pour money into the city.
For the people of New Orleans, even the promises of redevelopment come with strings attached, and every dollar that shows up – whether from government disaster relief, or from venture capital, or even from those seeking to remake New Orleans in the wake of Katrina – carries with it new dynamics and new risks. National interest has waned, moving on to the next headline, but those who know and love the Crescent City have no choice. They must find their way back to what matters in the life of their city. »
With the release of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters, Hollywood’s endless quest for the heir to the Harry Potter throne continues. Luckily for fans of the series, this installment, though far from original, is fun, light and fast-paced enough to both entertain its young target audience and keep parents in tow from falling asleep.
For those who either missed the last Percy Jackson adventure or have forgotten the series’ set-up in the strangely long lapse between this and 2010′s The Lightning Thief, Percy (Logan Lerman) is the teenaged, demigod son of Poseidon, the Greek god of the sea. He resides at Camp Half-Blood (a blatant Harry Potter lift, but honestly, what isn’t in these kinds of movies?) with his friends, all also descended from Greek gods and goddesses.
This time around, Percy and his friends are forced to embark on a quest for the Golden Fleece, located in »
