By now you're well aware of the controversy surrounding Peter Jackson's decision to shoot 'The Hobbit' in 48fps, a higher frame rate that has given the movie, at least in the early going, a sped-up and slightly disorienting appearance. (Read our review right here.) It has almost exclusively dominated the conversation regarding the highly-anticipated prequel, and today we have Warner Bros. weighing in to assure us that, contrary to some reports, 'The Hobbit' in 48fps will not make you nauseous. Always nice to know!
Read the studio's full statement on the matter after the break.
While we wait patiently (ever so patiently...) for a director to finally be named to helm 'Star Wars: Episode 7', we must look elsewhere to feed our 'Star Wars' hunger.
George Lucas will certainly do nicely! Ever since the news broke that the man would be on board in an advisory role during the development of 'Episode 7' (and beyond), most of us have been wondering just how connected he will be. To hear Lucas tell it, he's just sort of going to be hanging around, waiting for people to ask him something.
'Star Wars' has entered a brave new world since its acquisition by Disney last month; it appears as though every day sheds a little more light on the fast-tracked remodeling of the Lucasfilm property. Most recently we learned that 'Empire Strikes Back' scribe Lawrence Kasdan is allegedly making a long-awaited return to the franchise; joining the cause as well is 'X-Men: The Last Stand' writer Simon Kinberg. The thinking at the time of that news was that Disney and Lucasfilm had hired the screenwriters to commence work on Star Wars: Episodes 8 and 9, but a new report suggests something a bit more ambitious may be at play...
Broken Lizard - the comedy team that brought us the cult favorites 'Super Troopers' and 'Beerfest' - has a new comedy coming out called 'Freeloaders' and the trailer has just crashed the 'net. Yes, its just as juvenile as you would expect. Yes, it stars Olivia Munn and that guy from Counting Crows (who also produces). And yes, we have to see this thing pronto.
Danny Trejo's Machete is rarely -- if ever -- squaring off against a foe he can't handle, but that has changed with a lawsuit that has put the badass in danger of being shut down.
Overnight Productions, which produced the original 'Machete' as well as the sequel 'Machete Kills,' is looking to cut ties with Robert Rodriguez, director of both pictures, and is seeking $2 million in damages for various alleged wrongdoings. And this could well see 'Machete Kills' shelved for the foreseeable future.
This holiday season, you'll probably be giving a geek you love a copy of 'The Dark Knight Rises,' which hits shelves on December 4. So, if you're going to be purchasing a copy anyway, you might as well get an "exclusive reward" out of it, right? Like a brand new look at 'Man of Steel,' Zack Snyder's Superman reboot?
Find out how you can help unleash Supes on the world early after the break.
As we revealed back in August, 20th Century Fox altered its original distribution plan for the 'Star Wars' 3D re-releases -- from dishing one out annually to giving them back-to-back releases -- with 'Attack of the Clones' and 'Revenge of the Sith' separated by a mere handful of weeks in late 2013.
Well, that has changed once again, as the studio has moved 'Sith' up; now it opens only two weeks after 'Attack of the Clones.' Find out the exact dates after the break.
Believe it or not, it has almost been 20 years since 'Wayne's World 2' came out. (That little piece of info just makes our bones creak.) A long time, yes, but it's never too late to reunite with old friends, which is why we're absolutely delighted to hear that Mike Myers is working on a 'Wayne's World 3' with the lovable public access hosts from Illinois.
Not only that, but Myers has apparently finished the first draft of the screenplay! Find out what it's about after the break. Shhwiiing!
Those 'Expendables' are still truckin'; despite being a combined age of 794 (well, roughly), the creaky action heroes are soldiering on toward 'The Expendables 3,' with Sylvester Stallone leading the charge. However, they just might be too old for this, um, stuff.
Stallone recently implied that the group will have to bring in new blood to keep going - and no, we don't mean a transfusion - we mean a new set of characters to shake things up and give the elder gentlemen a boost. So what does Sly have in mind? Find out after the break!
