Avatar 120 fps

Unlike some of his esteemed colleagues, James Cameron has never shied away from new technology. He’s been a proponent of 4K resolution and higher frame rates for years. In fact, he’s been telling people he wanted to shoot his Avatar sequels in 60 FPS since 2011 — before Peter Jackson’s 48 FPS Hobbit even hit theaters.

Now it seems Cameron may go even further than that. Douglas Trumbull says Cameron’s Avatar producer Jon Landau is interested in his MAGI process, which captures and displays images at 120 frames per second in 4K and 3D. Hit the jump for more details.

Dead Snow 2 Red vs Dead trailer

Poor Martin. The only survivor of the first Dead Snow discovers in Dead Snow 2: Red vs. Dead that his troubles are far from over. You see, the infected arm he had to hack off in the last film has since been replaced by a Nazi zombie arm, and it’s got a mind of its own. Specifically, a mind determined to carry out Hitler’s orders.

Fortunately, he’s got some allies. Martin (Vegar Hoel) is joined this time by a trio of Americans (played by Martin Starr, Jocelyn DeBoer, and Ingrid Haas) who call themselves the “Zombie Squad.” Watch the Dead Snow 2 Red vs Dead trailer after the jump.

David Fincher 20000 leagues

This fall brings the release of Gone Girl, David Fincher‘s first theatrical release since 2011′s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. In between the two films, he was circling several others including the Dragon Tattoo follow-up The Girl Who Played with Fire and Disney’s Jules Verne adaptation 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

The latter is definitely dead at this point, with Fincher even offering up an explanation as to where things went wrong. The director sounded a bit more optimistic about The Girl Who Played With Fire, however, predicting that Sony would do “something” with the project. Hit the jump to read his comments on 20000 Leagues and the Dragon Tattoo sequel.
