‘Interstellar’ Opening Three Days Early in IMAX

Interstellar header

The only real way to see a Christopher Nolan movie is in IMAX. The filmmaker specifically makes his films for the large screen format, and with each subsequent movie he innovates in multiple ways. For his latest film, Interstellar, Nolan put IMAX cameras on planes to capture new footage. In the coming weeks, we’ll surely hear more about his IMAX use. Film projection in IMAX is important to him, too, and the flagship location, the TCL Chinese Theater IMAX, is specifically putting in a film projector for Nolan’s movie.

So we’ll say again: the only real way to see a Christopher Nolan movie is in IMAX. And it turns out, you’ll have a chance to do that a few days earlier than anywhere else. Multiple IMAX theaters are selling tickets to see the Interstellar IMAX experience on November 4, three days ahead of the wide November 7 opening. Read More »

Rush Hour TV series

Here’s a concept: we’re going to run one article with the headline “that movie you’ve probably seen is now being turned into a TV series.” TV is the new revenue stream, it seems, for companies that can no longer rely on a steady stream of home media revenue. The latest development concerns a Rush Hour TV series, which film director Brett Ratner and producer Arthur Sarkissian will exec produce for Warner Bros. TV. Read More »

‘Zombieland 2′ Back on Fast Track With New Writer

ZOMBIELAND

Much like the characters implied by the title, Zombieland 2 keeps coming back to life. The original writers, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, have been thinking about a sequel for years and eventually spun some of those ideas into a Amazon TV pilot. The show was not picked up, and most thought that was the end. Like a good zombie, however, the feature version of Zombieland 2 is now rising from the grave.

A new report says Sony Pictures has hired Dave Callaham, writer of the first two Expendables movies, to pen a sequel with Ruben Fleischer expected to return and direct. Read More »

Dwayne Johnson in Tooth Fairy

Because Dwayne Johnson doesn’t have enough action/adventure franchises already, he could find himself with yet another one on his hands. The actor has confirmed he’ll star in The Janson Directive, based on the book by Bourne author Robert Ludlum. Akiva Goldsman is writing the script.

new John Wick trailer

I don’t think I spoke to anyone at Fantastic Fest who saw John Wick and didn’t like it. I heard praise for Keanu Reeves‘ turn as a killer, for the action and overall direction of Chad Stahelski, who was Reeves‘ stunt double in The Matrix, and stunt choreographer for Man of Tai Chi, and, yeah, for the dog. You’ll see the dog again in this new John Wick trailer, and get a taste of everything else, too, as it promotes the story of a former assassin (Reeves) who goes back into action to target gangsters who have “taken everything from him.” Read More »

Days of Future Past VFX

As Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past hits digital home distribution and will soon be on Blu-ray and DVD, we’re getting a barrage of behind the scenes featurettes exploring the creation of the film. Fox assumes we’ve all seen the movie, and is now attempting to attract audiences with teasing glimpses of the techniques used to create the film. Know what? It’s working. Here’s a Days of Future Past VFX breakdown from Digital Domain, showing how some of Mystique’s transformations were created, and providing great detail on the development of the baseball stadium used in one big sequence.

In addition we’ve got few other Days of Future Past bits, including a deleted scene with Mystique, and a couple character-specific featurettes focused on Sunspot and Bishop. Read More »

Yet another big-screen classic is making the leap to the small screen.
