Heyman: 3D not right for Paddington

10 hours ago | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Producer of Gravity and Harry Potter discusses why a 3D version of Paddington was not considered.

Paddington producer David Heyman has answered why the upcoming family film will not be available in 3D.

“We felt there was no added experiential value to having Paddington in 3D,” Heyman told an audience at a preview screening on Saturday. “We didn’t even discuss it.”

Heyman produced the Harry Potter series and Gravity, arguably one of the best 3D films of recent years.

But he dismissed the idea of making a 3D version of Paddington and said: “You could easily do 3D to get more money. But there are some films where it’s right and some where it’s not.”

Director Paul King also argued against the use of 3D as it would have gone against the “classic” feel he was attempting to achieve.

“It’s quite a domestic setting for 3D. What were people »

New TV Shows Could Break Into Crowded SAG Awards

20 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

One thing you’ve got to hand to the SAG TV voters, they’re loyal to a fault. When it comes to the categories for individual acting, once they find someone they like, they stick with them.

Each year a host of veterans, not to mention a steady stream of series newcomers, is forced into the cold by familiar, entrenched names in comedy and drama alike.

So amidst the universal mourning for the “Breaking Bad” and “30 Rock” finales, there must have been a certain amount of secret glee among thesps. After all, the spot Bryan Cranston occupied in male actor, drama, for five consecutive years is now open for business, as are Alec Baldwin and Tina Fey’s in the comedy division, where they competed, and usually triumphed, a total of 15 times.

Opening up Cranston’s slot is particularly tantalizing, since the drama field is crowded indeed. Steve Buscemi of »

New UK sci-fi and fantasy shows to look out for in 2015

20 November 2014 9:54 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Androids, magic, parallel worlds, ghostly crime, and the apocalypse. Here’s a raft of new forthcoming UK sci-fi and fantasy TV…

The superhero genre may be taking up residence in cinemas for the foreseeable, and Game Of Thrones and The Walking Dead are leading Us TV's genre output, but what can fans of UK sci-fi and fantasy look forward to seeing on television over the next year?

There’s Doctor Who of course, which appears to be in rude health and going nowhere, a Christmas Special from Black Mirror, and a hint of new Red Dwarf on its way. (And of course, if there’s anything like justice in the world, the terrific In The Flesh will be recommissioned for a third series.)

If though, you’re thirsting for something new, 2015 is promising to deliver a handful of geek TV gems. We’ve scoured the new UK commission announcements for anything spooky, »

Questions We Have About Disney's 'Cinderella' (Trailer)

19 November 2014 2:26 PM, PST | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Director: Kenneth Branagh is a strong filmmaker, from "Dead Again" to Shakespeare to "Thor." "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit" was not his finest hour. So he may be ready to redeem himself with something really good. There's more leeway with fairy tale family fare.  Producers: Alison Shearmur (ex-studio executive), David Barron ("Harry Potter"production manager) and Simon Kinberg ("X-Men" writer-producer) have solid mainstream studio credits. Cast: Lily James ("Downton Abbey") and Richard Madden ("Game of Thrones") are strong as the two romantic leads, while we can't complain about Wicked Stepmother Cate Blanchett or Fairy Godmother Helena Bonham Carter, who can handle anything.  Writer: Aline Brosh McKenna is a veteran studio screenwriter, from "The Devil Wears Prada" to "We Bought a Zoo." But it's always tough to know who did what; Chris Weitz ("About a Boy," "Golden »

The Magical New Cinderella Trailer, Poster, And Images Sparkle

19 November 2014 11:42 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

On Wednesday, Walt Disney Studios debuted the beautiful new trailer for Cinderlla. A live-action feature inspired by the classic fairy tale, Cinderella brings to life the timeless images from Disney’s 1950 animated masterpiece as fully-realized characters in a visually-dazzling spectacle for a whole new generation.

The trailer introduces audiences to Lily James (“Downton Abbey”) in the iconic role of Cinderella, a beautiful young woman with a gentle spirit who, despite the cruelty and abuse she is subjected to from her stepmother and her daughters, continues to remain positive and steadfast, as well as the first images of Oscar winner Cate Blanchett (“Blue Jasmine”) as the wicked stepmother, Richard Madden (“Game of Thrones”) as the dashing, intelligent and thoughtful Prince, and the one-of-a-kind glass slipper.

The slipper was designed by three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Sandy Powell (“The Aviator”) and produced by Swarovski, and is a magnificent work of art.
