Lloyd Kaufman’s next movie is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s the Tempest. The last time he tackled the bard, we were blessed with Tromeo & Juliet, probably one of the greatest pieces of cinema ever created. To say I’m excited for this is an understatement.

Both of these trailers are ridiculously :nws:

I did find it amusing that fake breasts were shown freely but real ones were censored in that trailer.

It's going to be both 3D and high framerate, which is good because it means a bunch of theaters are going to be upgrading their equipment to handle high framerate since they don't want to miss on the biggest blockbuster of the year so future filmmakers who want to experiment with it won't be limited to a small handful of special theaters like Ang Lee's experimental high framerate movies were.

Good, the hobbit trilogy was terrible but the hfr made the 3d actually not a negative.

I kind of get the feeling they did that because if you state that OJ didn't do it Nicole Brown Simpson's surviving family will sue the gently caress out of you, and if you state that he did OJ will sue the gently caress out of you instead

Any kind of fictional depiction of the murder is in a no-win situation until it passes far enough into history that the surviving major players aren't interested in being litigious about it

Naw, OJ lost the civil suit, you can call him a murderer.

It's like when you watched Dragon Ball Z back in the day, and the incredibly bombastic narrator would spend five minutes recapping the events of the previous episode at the start, and then describe most of the events of the next episode at the end, so you basically only needed to watch every third episode or so to keep up with things. Next time, on DRAGON! BALL! Z!

My fav was the one that went almost literally "Which fighter will die in this next fight? Stay tuned for the next episode 'Dende Dies'!" *cut to image of his corpse*

Probably the funniest thing they ever did in the FF franchise was when they tried to claim that Vin Diesel (52) went to high school at the same times as Michelle Rodriguez (41.)

I find that they didn't tell Michelle Rodriguez they were bringing her character back to life for 6 until after she saw her character in the stinger at the end of 5 pretty funny. Also that she went to see Fast 5 in theaters even tho her character died in 4.

I'm pretty sure the Sonic movie is going to be fair to decent, make slightly over budget, and be forgotten about by April.

The kids in the theater were really into it. There's not much else to it though, it is very forgettable. Also Sonic randomly calls Jim Carrey Dr. Eggman twice for no reason, otherwise it's all Dr Robotnik.

Just looking over the schedule of upcoming movies and I spot Kevin Sorbo's face.



quote:

After the success of Climate Hustle 1 (being #1 per screen average), now we are facing a frenzied Green movement unlike anything we have ever seen -- a rising climate monarchy that seeks new adherents to their radical agenda. They want to silence all opposition down completely – muzzle respected scientists that disagree with them so that nothing stands in the way of their efforts to garner more power, money and influence. Worse, they insist the UN, and not our elected leaders, be the ones calling the shots on US climate and energy policy. They are not afraid to abuse science to achieve their ends. Theirs is an ideological agenda, a political philosophy opposed to American ideals of freedom. Climate Hustle 2 will pull back the curtain and expose the hypocrisy, efforts at making a new “green” religion, indoctrination of children in the classroom, and the flow of trillions of dollars into a massive hidden war on our culture, and much, much more.

Didn't Independence Day have to do without the involvement and endorsement of the US military because the Pentagon asked that they remove the references to Area 51 from the film and they refused?

Also, Hercules was fun, but I remember them killing Hades at the end and that just makes no loving sense. I could be mistaken.

Yes, it's not that hard to make do without military providing free props and labor, it just ups the budget a bit.

Nope, logos, etc of the US government are public domain. They'd have to go to a prop shop and rent them instead of using "real" ones for free, but nothing legal prevents that. As for corporate logos, that can get messy but Hollywood always comes out on top of those slap fights.

Thank you, I've learned things.

There's also Errors and Omissions insurance for in case you get sued for not clearing the rights for something you were supposed to but missed. So sometimes the insurance company's lawyer is who decides that a logo can't be shown regardless of what the rights actually are because their job is to minimize risk.

Pirate Jet posted:

I question the point of making a streaming service that limits video to ten minutes each when all you’re going to do is make shows whose episodes are split into three videos anyways.

The point is that it falls under the minimum video length to require paying guild minimum wage. Doesn't matter that it would've been a normal half hour show if you hadn't stuck credits in every ad break. Plus most of their scripts were written for tv format and they spent as little time as possible making them fit the quibi format.
