Keep in mind that the following story has not been confirmed by Sony so this could very well not be true. However, I feel I need to express my thoughts on the situation if it does appear to be true.

According to Ain’t It Cool News, Sony’s “The Amazing Spider-Man 3” might not be opening in 2016 as previously expected. Here’s the extremely brief quote:

I have been told that “The Amazing Spider-Man 3” has been moved to an undetermined date in 2017. Time for a second reboot? Continue reading

Hey, remember “Avatar?” Y’know, the highest grossing movie of all-time? Well, it’s been nearly five years and director James Cameron is still trying to get started with work on the sequels. It’s basically just been all talk and no real solid news. But now, we have our first piece of information in months . . . and it’s really weird.

Cameron recently spoke out about if Sigourney Weaver would return to the cast in the three planned sequels and he said the following. Beware of spoilers of the first film, but I’m sure you’ve seen “Avatar” by now. Continue reading

pacificrimbanner

“Pacific Rim” was one of the most fun films I had seen in the past several years. Guillermo Del Toro knew how to masterfully construct cheer-enducing action sequences featuring larger-than-life robots and monsters. It was truly a visual feast to watch, especially in the IMAX 3D format.

Well word just came from Del Toro himself that he is “working very, very hard with Zak Penn,” on the script for a sequel! Continue reading

“Ant-Man” Director Is . . . A “Yes Man!”

"The Break Up" Los Angeles Premiere - Arrivals

Marvel has gone through hell with this “Ant-Man” movie ever since Edgar Wright left the project. There have been several names for directors the studio was interested in including Adam McKay, Ruben Fleischer, David Wain, and Rawson Thurber. For some reason, Phil Lord & Chris Miller were never mentioned, but I digress. Clearly, they wanted comedy directors. Now, it’s officially been announced that Marvel has their guy – Peyton Reed, director of “Yes Man” and “The Break-Up.” Continue reading

James Gunn Speaks Out About 3D and IMAX in “Guardians of the Galaxy”

Today on his Facebook page, director James Gunn made a post talking about his experience with the IMAX 3D conversion of Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Here’s what he had to say:

Just got out of working on the Guardians cut for IMAX 3D and I’m unbelievably excited about it. “Guardians of the Galaxy” has been planned as a 3D film from its very inception. Yes, if you see the film in 2D, you’ll get a full experience. But the 3D experience promises a little something extra. Unlike many directors, I’ve been actively involved with converting every shot to 3D, making sure it works perfectly for the story and the film, making sure it’s spectacular and immersive without being silly, distracting, or overly showy. 3D conversion was once far inferior to shooting in 3D, but over the past couple years new technology has allowed us incredible control over the 3D effects, making it equal to or in some cases greater than shooting in 3D.
