VOTD: New THX Intro Goes Ethereal

new thx intro

When a THX intro plays in front of a movie, you know you’re in for a treat. The movie may be terrible but you know that it’s going to look and sound great. That knowledge made the old school THX intros a sort of comfort blanket for film fans. A guarantee of quality in an industry where crap is often good enough.

Now, a new intro is out there and it’s a bit more ethereal than we’re used to. There aren’t any mechanical flowers or flying robots; it’s just a journey into deep space. Check out the new THX intro below. Read More »

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies release date

Briefly: After so, so many years of development, with just about every director-star combo imaginable, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies finally has a set release date. Screen Gems will put the comedy horror mashup in theaters February 19, 2016, putting it up against the Naomi Watts thriller Shut In.

Based on the hit novel by Seth Grahame-Smith, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies moves the plot of Jane Austen‘s Pride and Prejudice to an idyllic English countryside littered with the undead. Lily James, Bella Heathcote, Ellie Bamber, Millie Brady, and Suki Waterhouse play the five Bennet sisters. Sam Riley, Douglas Booth, Jack Huston, and Matt Smith are their would-be suitors. Burr Steers directs. [Coming Soon]

Vacation movie release date

Briefly: In a move of supreme confidence, Warner Bros. has just bumped the Vacation reboot from October to July 31. That’ll put it up against Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, which is sure to be one of summer’s biggest movies. No matter; the John Francis Daley and Jonathan M. Goldstein directed film, which is both a reboot and sequel to the classic Chevy Chase series of films, is coming right on its heels.

Ed Helms plays Rusty Griswold, the grown son of Clark and Ellen (Chase and Beverly D’Angelo, who both cameo), who takes his own family on an sure-to-be-doomed vacation. Chris Hemsworth, Leslie Mann, Christina Applegate and Charlie Day, co-star. [THR]

yankees Sandlot

This’ll be short and sweet. Several members of the 2015 New York Yankees took time out of Spring Training for some play acting. They reenacted one of the most famous scenes from my favorite sports movie of all time, The Sandlot, and their version of the scene is created with eerie precision. Even as a lifelong Mets fan, this video makes me like the Yankees a little bit more. But just a little. Check out the Yankees Sandlot reenactment below. Read More »

deadpool movie filming

Mark it on your calendar, Deadpool fans. March 19, 2015 is the day we saw the first images from the set of a Deadpool movie. Stars Ryan Reynolds and Morena Baccarin both tweeted out images of their set chairs with a makeshift, paint-splattered logo marking the start of production.

It’s been a long road for the film, which was first announced in 2009 and sat in development hell until the test footage shot for the then head of 20th Century Fox leaked online. Fox then saw the fan desire for the film and put it on the fast track.

Deadpool will be released February 12, 2016 and below you can see the Deadpool movie filming images. Read More »
