    Futures of Entertainment.

    I have had the pleasure of attending Futures of Entertainment, the MIT conference founded by Henry Jenkins's comparative media studies department, for the past two years. I found this year's program even more satisfying than the last one, which I wrote about in this hurried dispatch. There's something uniquely compelling about sitting in a room filled with academics and industry vets alike as they grapple with finding a common ground. As a movie guy, I was fascinated by the efforts of the team behind Purefold to create a transmedia storytelling experience out of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner universe, and my heart went out to the efforts of The...

    Avatar May Debut at Knowles Butt-Numb-A-Thon

    AICN's Harry Knowles has long cultivated close friendships with powerful filmmakers. Peter Jackson showed him The Lovely Bones before any one else, and now I hear that James Cameron, who often calls Knowles when he wants to promote something, is trying to override studio Twentieth Century Fox's antipathy toward the Austin-based webmaster (who likes to blast co-chairman Tom Rothman) by giving him Avatar to screen at his annual December 24-hour film marathon Butt-Numb-A-Thon. The BNAT shows classic films as well as such premieres as The Passion of the Christ, Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy and King Kong, Dreamgirls, Chicago, Magnolia, ...
