BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Recently, The Weinstein Company announced plans to partner with Netflix on a unique distribution model for the anticipated sequel, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2. The news, however, didn’t go over well with everyone in the industry.
While it's not the longest wait between sequels, the fourteen years that fans have been waiting for a proper follow up to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon have flown by like Chow Yun Fat himself. Today we not only have a firm release date for the film's release, but we also have two gorgeous photos and some news on the film's unique distribution model.
As a special extra promotion for the new screenings of Forrest Gump - which is a one-week-only engagement - Paramount Pictures has announced a team up with IMAX to commission the artwork you see, which will be given out in theaters with purchase of a ticket. If you're hoping to pick up one of these prints, I would highly recommend going to a theater on Friday night.
It was only about five years ago that James Cameron's Avatar changed the world's perspective on the cinematic experience and both IMAX and 3D. And while we've seen some marvelous titles take advantage of both formats in the time since, the reality is that the industry is now regularly looking for a way to stay fresh and innovative.
We've been hearing rumors about Star Wars: Episode VII possibly filming with IMAX cameras since September of last year, but only now has the format been 100% confirmed. And we're getting an early look at what is probably the planet Tatooine in the process.
Paramount Pictures is re-releasing Forrest Gump on September 5th, 2014. This will be a special engagement, only on IMAX screens, intended to
After years of flirting with the format in an on and off fashion, Universal and Legendary have signed an agreement to bring fifteen of their films to IMAX screens from 2015 to 2017. If you love muscle cars and dinosaurs on a larger than life screen, then Christmas has come early.
The past couple of months have been chock full of material promoting the new Godzilla movie, and today is no exception. Two clips and a poster had landed, and they’re just as impressive as the already formidable marketing we’ve already seen. But can it look good enough to make everyone forget “that” Godzilla movie? What lies within this link is probably the strongest argument yet that yes – this is going to make everyone think “that” Godzilla movie never existed.
With a December 2015 release date, it’s full power on Lucasfilms’ first Disney-distributed effort. You’ll get to see the relatives and descendants of Luke, Han, Leia and (hopefully) Chewbacca in the IMAX format next holiday season, a real treat for those who appreciate JJ Abrams’ widescreen vistas.
Alfonso Cuaron's beautiful and impressive epic Gravity has been making headlines ever since it debuted on the fall film festival circuit last year, but today it has yet another milestone to add to its incredible list of achievements.
Re-releases like this are always great because they can give people a chance to see titles that they may have missed during the first theatrical run, but Gravity is a special case. Even if you saw Gravity back when it was out in October, you should make a point of trying to see it again. After all, the material demands the screen size, and in the future IMAX screenings will be much less available. Take the opportunity when it presents itself.
Ever since The Dark Knight, director Christopher Nolan has been seen as a hardcore advocate of IMAX technology - particularly over the widespread use of 3D. Because of the filmmaker's prior usage of IMAX cameras on both The Dark Knight and The Dark Knight Rises, it was no surprise when it was announced that he would once again be using the larger format film making his latest project, the sci-fi epic Interstellar.
With the 3D trend visibly dying out, movie theaters and studios are looking for even more ways to get people to actually leave their houses to go to the movies, and thus far the hippest new thing is IMAX. The large format that used to be limited to planetariums has been used to dazzling effect in films like The Dark Knight Rises and the upcoming Gravity, and more and more filmmakers are adopting it to make their big-budget spectacles all the more spectacular. Will J.J. Abrams be the next to jump on board?
IMAX Corporation, Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions announced in a release that Brad Pitt’s global zombie apocalypse thriller has been digitally re-mastered into the IMAX 3D format, and will be released into select IMAX theaters domestically for a one-week engagement beginning Aug. 2.
It seems almost a given for big budget action-adventures, but Summit Entertainment makes it official with a new please release: Divergent will hit theaters in IMAX next spring. IMAX Corporation will digitally re-master the finished film and give its audio a mix befitting of The IMAX Experience®, making the movie even more spectacular for those willing to pay a little extra.
