What works on the page and in our imag...

    Up in the Air: Opening Sequence

    One of my favorite opening sequences from a movie is Jason Reitman's for Up in the Air, which sets the tone perfectly for the movie. It's a swinging cover of "This Land is Your Land" and was designed by Shadowplay. It was devilishly hard to shoot. I asked Reitman about this; his full answer is on th...

Already a huge hit in Asia, which financed the original two-part $80-million five-hour war film (the most expensive movie ever produced in China), the two-and-a half-hour western cut of Red Cliff launched stateside last week in...

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, ...
