Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back Retold in Iconscope

Ultimate 2001 Summer Movie Trailer

Summer movies incoming! Let’s do this thing!

I posted the 2010 trailer one year ago and it was a big hit. So here is the newest edition. I take absolutely no credit. That all goes to Mike Eisenberg of screenrant.com.

Which movies are you most excited for?

The Dark Knight Rises ending is not printed in the production script

“To get into the production office, you have to have someone meet you and there are keys and various doors that lock. The script you read in the production office, and there is no ending because [Nolan] tells you the ending so that it doesn’t leak and get out, and people spoil it on the internet.”

Gustavo Hernández‘s The Silent House is a Uruguayan horror movie which was shot in one long 79-minute continuous take. Click through to head over to slashfilm for the trailer as well as their review of the movie.

Watch The First Five Minutes of ‘Source Code’

Duncan Jones, the man who made Moon (as his Twitter name states) is back with his sophomore film, Source Code. The mind-bending sci-fi film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Colter Stevens, a military captain who somehow finds himself inside the body of another man for the final eight minutes of his life. In that time, he has to find out who blew up a train full of passengers before the bomber strikes again. Also starring Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright, the film just had its world premiere at South by Southwest and will open everywhere on April 1. If you’re exceedingly excited for the movie, Yahoo has posted the first five minutes, which really do suck you in.

Pay what you want for a sneak preview of Freakonomics: The Movie

Screenings in ten cities offer fans an opportunity to see the upcoming film based on the internationally bestselling book for a price that they choose. New York, NY (September 15, 2010) Magnolia Pictures and the Green Film Company announced today a unique screening program in ten cities across the country that will allow filmgoers to choose how much they want to pay for an advance look at Freakonomics: The Movie.

The highly anticipated film version of the internationally bestselling book by Stephen Dubner and Steven Levitt hits theaters nationwide on October 1st. These pay-what-you-want screenings offer fans a chance to see the film on Wednesday, September 22nd, over a week before its official opening, at Landmark Theatres in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Washington, DC, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Philadelphia, Denver and Seattle.

Tickets for the screenings are now available, and are being exclusively sold online through MovieTickets.com. Filmgoers can choose how much they wish to pay-anywhere in the range of $.01 to $100, with the completion of a short questionnaire. The survey, which after completion gives access to the ticket buying page on MovieTickets.com is accessible here.

How much do you like Lost?

Leicester Square’s Prince Charles Cinema has announced that they will screen the entire series of Lost, all 121 episodes, in a three day marathon.

They plan to begin the marathon at 10:00 am on September 13th 2010 and will keep it playing until the final fade out. They claim this will be three days, but the average episode runs 42 minutes. If they took absolutely no breaks what-so-ever, the marathon will run three and a half days. I would guestimate that it will take more than 4 days in total to screen every single show.

Apparently, the first 280 people who arrive will be eligible to take part in the marathon and fans are being encouraged to pre-register via lostmarathon@taylorherring.com. Prince Charles Cinema director Gregory Lynn says that paramedics will be on standby throughout the screenings and breaks will be permitted.

James Cameron Claims “The Hurt Locker” Would Have Been Better In 3D

I think [The Hurt Locker] would have been better in 3D. Absolutely. It wouldn’t have been hugely better in 3D, but I’m talking a future where you don’t have to put ‘in 3D’ on the movie poster anymore, the same way you don’t put ‘in color’ on posters anymore.

Portable Blue Laser from Wicked Lasers

Don’t let the Arctic name fool you, this laser possesses the most burning capabilities of any portable laser in existence. That’s why it’s also the most dangerous laser ever created.

According to a warning label, it sets fire to skin and other body parts. Add to list of impractical shit I must have. ($197.97)

Apparently LucasFilms is demanding that they cease production of a laser that looks so much like a lightsaber. I demand they they cease production in favor of creating a real lightsaber.

Thought provoking. I’m going to have to look into this. BechdelTest.com for more information.

Very excited for this unique movie.
