San Andreas 4DX

Violent shaking, swirling winds, billowing smoke, and that’s just inside the movie theater. Since the opening of the United States’ first 4DX theater in Los Angeles, CA last year, there really hasn’t been quite as perfect a marriage of experience and material as that theater and San Andreas. Where a film like Transformers: Age of Extinction certainly works in 4DX, San Andreas is about characters being in an environment that moves around. (That being an earthquake.) So, unlike other action movies that have used the technology, it seemed like, at least on the surface, San Andreas would be the perfect film for /Film to use as our triumphant return to 4DX.

So, was it worth it? Find out in our San Andreas 4DX video blog. Read More »

Star Wars Rebels Season 2 premiere

UPDATE: The Star Wars Rebels season 2 premiere described below will premiere June 20. Read more info after our original article.

Darth Vader is on the trail of Kanan, Ezra, Hera, Sabine and Zeb in the season 2 premiere of Star Wars Rebels. The hour-long episode won’t be on Disney XD until this summer, but a few hundred lucky fans at Star Wars Celebration were treated to an early sneak peak.

/Film was on hand and recorded a video blog immediately after the screening to talk about the Rebels Season 2 premiere. We do touch on a few minor spoilers so beware, but it’s not a spoiler to say the episode is an amazing piece of television. A story that absolutely could very easily be a Star Wars movie.

Universal Pictures CinemaCon 2015

I just got home from Las Vegas, where for the last week I had attended the CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest), the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors each year.

Thursday afternoon we saw a presentation from Universal Pictures showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Jurassic World, Everest, Crimson Peak and The Secret Life of Pets and more. In previous years Universal has come to CinemaCon with a ton of footage from their line-up up to a year and a half in advance, this year’s presentation in comparison was disappointing. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free Universal Pictures CinemaCon reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

Fantastic Four poster header - Fox CinemaCon 2015

I just got home from Las Vegas, where for the last week I had attended the CinemaCon convention (formerly ShoWest), the largest gathering of movie theatre exhibitors each year. The convention is packed with talks about subjects such as how to maximize profits, and features a show floor filled with the newest and best concessions equipment. More notably, most of the major movie studios hold presentations of upcoming film line-ups for the next year and beyond. Companies even show some of their films early to get some excitement from those booking the screens.

Thursday morning we saw a presentation from 20th Century Fox showcasing some of their big upcoming films including Peanuts, Poltergeist, Paper Towns, Hitman: Agent 47, Victor Frankenstein, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, Fantastic 4, The Martian, Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant and David O Russell’s Joy and more. After the presentation I recorded a spoiler free 20th Century Fox CinemaCon 2015 reaction video reaction with Steve from Collider, which you can watch that now embedded after the jump.

Force Awakens video reaction

Our own Peter Sciretta and Germain Lussier were in the hall this morning at Star Wars Celebration for the hour-long The Force Awakens panel and subsequent reveal of the film’s second teaser trailer. If you haven’t watched the trailer yet, first, why not? It’s tremendously good. And second, watch it here, then hit the jump for a video reaction from consummate Star Wars nerds Peter and Germain, with a special appearance from Eric Vespe, perhaps better known as an occasional hobbit and Quint from Ain’t It Cool News.  Read More »

San Andreas Johnson Gugino

This past Saturday, Warner Bros. had the honor of hosting the most anticipated and speculated about movie panel of WonderCon 2015. Would the studio show anything from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which will be debuting a trailer in May? The answer was “No.” They did, however, show some incredibly impressive footage from two of their huge May releases: George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road and Brad Peyton’s San Andreas.

Part of the /Film team, in this case myself and Peter Sciretta, were on hand and recorded a video blog minutes after the panel to give you our impressions of the brand new footage from both Mad Max and San Andreas. Watch it and read more below. Read More »
