  1. I figured since there's a topic about your recently purchased soundtracks why not have one for movies too? I recently bought all three Terminator films from Best Buy online using my Best Buy card. I will be getting them next week. I know I'm slow on getting them. There's a ton of films I still need to buy.
  2. Seemed to make sense to me to have a thread for general MCU news, rather than putting it all in Future Films thread, especially since each entry doesn't get their own thread, etc, and it's a popular film series with lots of news coming out all the time. For starters, here's a video about the various easter eggs that have been in the films This video catalogs almost every Easter egg in the Marvel Cinematic Universe
  3. Huh. http://variety.com/2014/film/news/rian-johnson-to-write-direct-next-two-films-1201226481/
  4. I couldn't find a relevant thread with the search function (and believe me, I looked) so I'm posting this here: http://www.empireonline.com/news/feed.asp?NID=23521 If an upcoming projects thread already exists this will need moving, but if not then I guess we now have a place to discuss future movies which aren't necessarily anything to do with John Williams, Indiana Jones or Spielberg etc and all in one tidy thread.
  5. Blade Runner 2 is reportedly in the works.
  6. I haven't and don't intend to for the foreseeable future. I love gadgets and appreciate good image quality as much as the next bloke, but for me Blu-ray is currently a needless piece of tech with little to recommend it's adoption. Like many, I'm perfectly content with the excellent quality dvd already provides, especially when upscaled cheaply and actually quite effectively; with a capable player and good tv set. As far as I'm concerned (as I suspect are most consumers) the jump in visual quality provided by BR just isn't noticeable enough to warrant the still very expensive price of the new kit which plays it. Then of course there is the ridiculous price markup of movie discs themselves - often a cheap dvd feature film can be more than triple the price just for the BR counterpart; Titanic for eg is a fiver on dvd, but twenty quid on BR. That is just taking the piss. I remember laughing at what they were asking for Pearl Harbor. Nah, for the moment I'll gladly stick with the brilliantly upscalable Xbox 360 (via VGA), since it makes little or no sense to purchase a standalone Blue-ray at the moment. I'll probably hang on a couple of years and pick one up at my local Tesco's for 50 quid. What about you?
  7. Everytime I see one of these I laugh, I haven't seen a bad one yet. They just did Attack of the Clones, and it's pretty funny too!
  8. It looks like we are about to learn even more profound truths about our very existence. Karol
  9. Read here. And here is the original Variety story. I don't know... This doesn't seem like a good idea to me. However, I'm curious who might compose the score. Marc Streitenfeld? Karol
  10. Well...this stinks. http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=56314 ADMIN NOTE: Click here to jump to the point in the thread where the film was confirmed. http://www.jwfan.com/forums/index.php?/topic/19778-official-indiana-jones-5-thread-spielberg-and-ford-confirmed-opening-july-19-2019/&do=findComment&comment=1232124
  11. http://www.mugglenet.com/app/news/show/7209 Looks like it. This is out of the blue. I can't help but feel that I'm being trolled somehow. No idea how it will work but... interesting.
  12. Admin note: For earlier news before JJ Abrams was signed, see Disney buys Lucasfilm and all subsidiaries for $4.05billion, will release Star Wars Episode VII in 2015 J.J. Abrams is directing Episode VII So at least we know who's scoring it then. Karol
  13. Disney/Pixar To Release 10 Animated Films Through 2012 All these new movies, yet no The Incredibles 2?
  14. Absolutely hilarious movie reviews that I stumbled upon. You'd think it would be hard to sustain the humor after over an hour, but not for this guy. Check them out, unless you're turned off by profanity and, um, disturbing sequences: http://www.blancscreencinema.com/redlettermedia/phantom_menace.html'>The Phantom Menace http://www.blancscreencinema.com/redlettermedia/clones.html'>Attack of the Clones He's also done Avatar and various Star Trek films.
  15. Peter Jackson comments on a movie version of The Hobbit. The short story: he doesn't expect the lawyers to work out a deal that'll let the movie be made in less than 4 years. Sounds like lawyers. :roll:
  16. Interview with Bryan Burke TrekMovie article on it The first real official word on the next film of the franchise.
  17. It's official now. Apparently it draws inspiration from Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. Henry Cavill returns, as does David S. Goyer. Nolan is an executive producer. Karol
  18. Star Wars stand-alone films confirmed..
  19. Some news regarding the sequel: The first Tintin has been very successful around the world. Mr. Jackson is very caught up in The Hobbit for a while. Assuming that it’s a success in America, when do you envision a sequel being able to move forward? Is it being moved forward right now? Kennedy: Oh yeah it is being moved forward, in fact Steven and I were talking about it this morning. We’re working on a script right now, we’ll see a script probably February or March. If we can do some camera capture this summer, which I think we could do, then we would be on track to have the movie either Christmas 2014 or summer 2015, and so that’s what we’re looking at right now. http://collider.com/kathleen-kennedy-jurassic-park-4-tintin-sequel-jurassic-park-3d/130315/ It seems Jackson will do the motion-capture stuff between Hobbits... Let's hope Williams ends up scoring it.
  20. There are some plans for Jurassic Park IV. Spielberg seems to have a great idea, though director is yet to be announced. He said in a recent interview, that if it is made, it will be the last film in the series. I suppose that means that all the dinosaurs will die or something. It seems interesting to see an ending of the Jurassic Park series once and for all. If there will be a JP4, do you think Williams will score it??
  21. According to Latino Review's El Mayimbe on Twitter, he has the inside scoop on who will direct the long-gestating DC movie that teams up Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and Flash. It was in the works long before last year's The Avengers revitalized WB's interest in it. http://twitter.com/e...565592906727424 And before people start questioning Latino Review's scoops as legitimate or not... they've broken over a dozen news that panned out. Such as Christian Bale getting cast as Bruce Wayne/Batman in 2004, Brandon Routh as Superman in 2005, and Heath Ledger cast as the Joker on July 2006. (You'll have to Google the news items, the original links are dead.) So it'll be a director WB likes, which could be dozens.
