    This may get some fans all hot and bothered, but this writer is just gonna come out and say it. While there is no denying George A.

    Cameron Unveils Titanic 3-D Footage for April 2012 Release, Talks 3-D, Exploration, Avatar

    James Cameron loves 3-D. He’s believed in it from the beginning—in fact, he’s personally responsible for the entire industry’s move toward 3-D, I was reminded at a Popular Mechanics high-rise lunch in Hearst Tower before Cameron accepted one of the magazine’s 2011 Breakthrough Awards (video of his Q & A, which digs into the Avatar sequels, and acceptance speech is below). Even though everyone told him and inventor Vince Pace that 3-D filmmaking was impossible, they rigged two HD cameras together “and figured it out,” he said, proving that it could be done. Thus they changed the entertainment ...

    Watch: Trailer For Christian Bale & Zhang Yimou’s Oscar Contending ‘The Flowers Of War’

    After winning his first Oscar last year for "The Fighter," can Christian Bale make it a repeat this year? Judging by the first international trailer for Zhang Yimou's Oscar-contending "The Flowers Of War," we somehow doubt it, but the scale of the film does look impressive even if the tone seems som...

    ‘Jupiter Ascending’ Will Be The Wachowskis Next Film, Shooting To Start Spring 2012

    First cropping up in the middle of the summer, the mysterious "Jupiter Rising" (now being called "Jupiter Ascending") was added to the already lengthy list of movies being eyed by The Wachowskis. And since 2008's eyeball-melting "Speed Racer," they've certainly had no shortage of movies to choose from. While "Cloud Atlas" is now in front of cameras, “Hood,” an “urban retelling” of the Robin Hood mythology with Will Smith sought to star, and the R-rated Iraq War gay romance picture “CN-9” (aka “Cobalt Neutral 9”) were also tossed around as possibilities. But the former sounds, frankly, pretty terrible and latter is not going to get financing f...

    Comments on the Age Discrimination Suit Filed Against IMDB

    At first when I read about the lawsuit, I didn't really take it seriously. Everybody's birth dates are on imdb. I go on imdb practically every day in order to find out how old people are. I like to look at see the age differences between male and female actors playing opposite each other, and I always like to look at the ages of women who play the mothers of other actors because you know that most times the women are never old enough to have given birth to the actor or actress she is supposed to be the mother of. My latest check was for the age difference -- 11 years -- between Dana Delaney and Joanna Cassidy who play daughter and mother ...
