It’s almost expected for movie toy merchandize to spoil something about the movie before it hits the big screen these days. It’s gotten so bad that James Gunn suggested that they not make a dancing Groot toy to ensure the final scene remained a surprise for fans. J.J. Abrams has been trying to keep the lid on Star Wars: The Force Awakens spoilers and leaks, but leave it to the toy makers to let some character spoilers out of the bag. (more…)

Sony Still Wants to Release ‘The Interview,’ Looking for Time/Place To Do It

- 12-22-14Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

interview

The Interview is a gift that keeps on giving at the this normally slow news time of year. Last week, Sony Pictures pulled the film from its domestic and international Christmas Day release after a threat was posted by the group of hackers that cyber-attacked the company, implying a 9/11-style attack on any theater showing The Interview. On Friday, President Barack Obama said it was a bad move, and Sony execs tried to downplay the idea that they caved, saying that they do plan/hope to release The Interview at some point in the future. But there’s more than just the will to release the movie, there’s the means. And despite rumors to the contrary over the weekend, there’s still no solid word on when or how The Interview will be seen by audiences no matter where they are. (more…)

Looks Like Marvel & Sony Might Have Struck A Deal To Save Spider-Man!

To say that Sony has been having a bit of a bad spell as of late would be a complete understatement. It seems like things are going from bad to worse for the company; with constant news hitting the headlines from the Sony Hacks debacle – with the studio eventually caving in to the hackers; admitting defeat by pulling Seth Rogan and James Franco‘s comedy The Interview from theatres nationwide. One interesting aspect of the hacks has been the ongoing leaks of ‘back-and-forth’ conversations/negotiations between Marvel and Sony that have been progressively hinting at some kind of eventual conclusion – and due to the relentlessness of Marvel director Kevin Feige – this has only made it all the more inevitable (he’s gained somewhat of a reputation as being a slightly formidable character). Thusly, it seems that the struggling company are willing to give up some of the proverbially fiscal Spider-Man pie, and it seems that Marvel is feeling rather sweet-toothed this time round: and we are saying to  executives, dig in and enjoy the party.

Peter Jackson Thinks Hollywood Relies Too Much On Technology… Wait… Huh?

Peter Jackson with Cam

The final installment of the Hobbit trilogyThe Battle of the Five Armies, has finally hit the U.S. theaters, and Peter Jackson has been doing the rounds to promote the movie, however, that’s not all he’s been talking about. It’s no secret that The Hobbit movies have received their fair share of criticism for myriad reasons; but one of the most ubiquitous critiques, has been Jackson‘s heavy reliance on CGI effects, as opposed to the practical effects that he used in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. However, coming off the back of these criticisms, Jackson has been ruffling feathers in the contemporary movie-making world with his critique on the state of the industry today; the Hollywood zeitgeist if you like, and it’s all rather dumbfounding indeed.
