David Fincher To Give 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea The 3D Treatment

Filed under: Film FlickersDisneyTech Talk

david fincher to do 20000 leagues under the sea remake in 3d

Looks like The Social Network director David Fincher should have no problem getting a new generation excited about Jules Verne's classic story 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

Fincher, along with Disney, will be giving 20,000 Leagues the 3D touch, and they'll be doing it right with this one.

They'll be using "state-of-the-art 3D camera equipment," which should ensure that we get a quality 3D film as opposed to another Clash of the Titans.

Should be VERY inneresting to see a 3D Disney movie from the guy who directed Se7en.

Thoughts???

Pirates Love Avatar!!!

Filed under: Film FlickersTech Talk

pirates love avatar

Looks like pirates have set their sights on Pandora!

James Cameron's Avatar has been named 2010's most popular illegal download, with over 16 million BitTorrent downloads alone!

Avatar has received 51 percent more BitTorrent downloads than last year's #1 illegal download, Star Trek.

Other films on the unfortunate Top 10 List include Kick-Ass, Inception, Shutter Island, Iron Man 2, Clash of the Titans, Green Zone, Sherlock Holmes, The Hurt Locker, and Salt.

Don't worry too much, James! We're sure plenty of folks will still pick up Avatar on Blu-Ray & DVD to stuff those stockings!

Now, get going on that Avatar 2 script, bb!

James Cameron Puts 3D Movies (That Aren't Made By Him) On Blast!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry PotterTech Talk

james-cameron-slams-post-production-3d-conversion-in-filmmaking

Silly filmmakers!

Don't you know that 3D movies only work if James Cameron is making them?!

LOLz!

The director has recently once again spoken out against the technology being used in the filmmaking process, specifically if it's being converted in post-production.

He explains:

"I maintain you can't do a good conversion of a two-hour movie with high quality in a few weeks like they tried to do with Clash Of The Titans. I don't mean to throw that movie under the bus because my buddy Sam [Worthington, from Avatar] is in it, but I think everybody realized that this was a point at which people had gone too far. You see another stumble with the most recent Harry Potter movie from the same studio making the same mistake - except really getting spanked for it now because they didn't get the film done. They announced it in 3D - threw a bunch of money trying to convert it to 3D in post-production and it simply didn't work. They just didn't get it done. Post-conversion should be used for one thing and one thing only - which is to take library titles that are favourites that are proven, and convert them into 3D - whether it's Jaws or ET or Indiana Jones, Close Encounters… or Titanic."

Titanic, huh? How convenient!

This guy can be a real piece of work, and we don't COMPLETELY agree with the reasoning behind his thought-process, but we do have to say that he makes some good points!

Especially regarding Harry Potter! The movie looks amazing as is, and doing a hack 3D job last minute could have seriously hindered the quality of the movie-going experience!

Let's hope that productions use a little more restraint when deciding what gets converted, instead of focusing on how to bump up the price of the ticket!

What do U think?? Do U agree with Cameron??

Harry Potter Coming To 3D Blu-Ray!!!

harry potter coming to 3d blu ray soon

The only thing better than seeing DanRad in crystal-clear perfect quality is to see him flying around your living room during a 3D game of quidditch!

Warner Bros is currently working on bringing the Harry Potter series to 3D blu-ray, starting with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.

They've begun work on the Half-Blood Prince conversion to 3D, and we're glad to hear that they intend on doing it right, instead of rushing through the process, like they did with the infamous 3-Disaster Clash of the Titans.

No word yet on specific time frames for when these 3D conversions will be released, especially for earlier Harry Potter titles, but we're glad to hear they're on their way.

Should be inneresting to see if they decide to re-release the 3D Harry Potter films in theaters, like what Fox is doing with the Star Wars series.

Are U excited for 3D Harry Potter to make its way into your home?

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part I To Be Released In 2D ONLY!

Filed under: Film FlickersHarry Potter

harry potter and the deathly hallows part I to be released in 2d only

We cannot express enough how impressed we are with you, Warner Bros!

Warner planned to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part I in 3D, but because they couldn't get a quality 3D conversion done by the release date, they've decided to release the film solely in 2D.

Given the fact that Warner was responsible for releasing the poorly executed 3D release of Clash of the Titans, we are ecstatic that they learned their lesson and won't make the same mistake twice! It's refreshing to hear.

Here's the statement Warner Bros released regarding the loss of Harry Potter's 3rd dimension:

Warner Bros Pictures has made the decision to release Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 in 2D, in both conventional and IMAX theaters, as we will not have a completed 3D version of the film within our release date window. Despite everyone’s best efforts, we were unable to convert the film in its entirety and meet the highest standards of quality. We do not want to disappoint fans who have long-anticipated the conclusion of this extraordinary journey, and to that end, we are releasing our film day-and-date on November 19, 2010 as planned. We, in alignment with our filmmakers, believe this is the best course to take in order to ensure that our audiences enjoy the consummate “Harry Potter” experience.

Producer David Heyman said, “For 10 years, we have worked alongside Alan Horn and the studio, whose priority has always been to preserve the integrity of Jo Rowling’s books as we have adapted them to the screen, and this decision reflects that commitment.”

Director David Yates continued, “This decision, which we completely support, underscores the fact that Warner Bros. has always put quality first.”

As scheduled, on July 15, 2011, we will deliver to conventional and IMAX theaters our final installment of the film franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, in both 2D and 3D formats.

We are proud of U for having integrity, Warner!

How do U feel about the next Harry Potter being released solely in 2D?

Hobbit Update…And Then Second Breakfast Hobbit Update!

hobbit_movie_to_be_in_3d_and_ian_mckellan_awaiting_papers_to_sign_to_attach_himself_to_project

We've got all types of Hobbit updates for you today!

Get comfortable with your breakfast, or second breakfast, or your elevenses, and get ready for Hobbit news mania!

For those of you who want to immerse yourselves in Middle Earth, much like how Avatar immersed us in Pandora, you'll be pleased to know that The Hobbit will officially be released in 3D!

If only they could somehow incorporate three dimensions of Orlando Bloom into the movie…we'd start waiting on line in front of the theater now…even though the project is still awaiting the official greenlight.

In other Hobbit-related news, Ian McKellan is ready to sign on as Gandalf. As soon as he's given the papers from Peter Jackson, he's totally on board.

McKellan believes that The Hobbit will get the greenlight soon.

Here's what he had to say about it:

“It’s still a matter of MGM and Warner Bros. sorting things out, but I’m told they’re close.”

We're def excited for Ian McKellan to get attached to the movie AND we're thinking this one could work well in 3D, assuming they do it right and they don't half-ass it like Clash Of The Titans.

What do U think about all this Hobbit-related news?

Harold & Kumar To Return In 3D With Showering Nuns!

nph3de.jpg

We could fill an entire White Castle crave case with all the updates on A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas 3D, which is now officially slated for release in Christmas 2011!

A very exciting piece of news is that this Harold & Kumar movie will be filmed in 3D, and not converted in post, like Clash of the should have been 2D Titans

Comedian/actor Thomas Lennon, who will play Harold & Kumar’s uptight white friend in the movie, had even more fun news:

“There’s a tremendous amount of pot in the movie and a lot of nudity.”

Lennon also mentioned that they had shot a scene with nude showering nuns. Sounds like a great time to us!

The most important piece of news remains the fact that NPH will return. For those of you who had the privilege of watching the scene in Harold and Kumar 2, where Neil trips on mushrooms while Rob Corddry praises him for his role in Starship Troopers, you know he’s incredible!

Are U pumped to see Neil Patrick Harris in 3D?
