    Jim Cameron Honors Centenary Of Loss Of 1,517 Souls By Re-Releasing 'Titanic' In 3D On April 6, 2012

    After a dozen years as the top-grossing film of all time, a seemingly once-in-a-generation phenomenon, James Cameron's action-heavy period romance "Titanic" was finally unseated from its position as the biggest grossing film of all time by... James Cameron's action-heavy futuristic romance, "Avatar," which topped the earlier film's seemingly unbeatable $1,800,000,000 haul by nearly a billion dollars. But with "Avatar 2" not expected in theaters until 2015, the director has to find some way of keeping his coffers topped up (transplanting yourself into a Na'vi doesn't come cheap, you know), so he's going back to his number two film to give it t...

    Exclusive: Derek Cianfrance Talks Doo-Wop Christmas Soundtrack To First Feature 'Brother Tied'

    With Derek Cianfrance spending the last year picking up critical acclaim and awards recognition for "Blue Valentine" it's easy to forget that it's actually his second feature film. His first attempt at filmmaking came in 1998 with the sibling rivalry tale "Brother Tied." It played the Sundance Film Festival that year and earned strong word of mouth, but never made it to theaters. The years have worn on and recently, Cianfrance said he has a 35mm copy of the film sitting in his father's basement but that the biggest hurdle facing a proper release for the picture was the $300,000 price tag surrounding the doo-wop music in the film. We recently ...

    Todd Haynes Talks Creation And Legacy Of Debut Feature 'Poison'

    Almost 20 years later, Todd Haynes's debut feature is still a sucker punch to the gut. Erratic and experimental, playful and dark, IFC is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a week long exhibition of a new 35mm print at their theater in New York City. Probably the strangest (and strongest) first impression to give to the film world, "Poison" follows three interwoven stories, done in completely different styles to best illustrate the issue at hand. "Hero" is an extremely 90s faux TV documentary consisting of talking head townsfolk, the subject being the recent murder of a man by his son, who flew away after the crime. "Horror," a B-movie dri...
