Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell trailer

Imagine if you will a story that might be set somewhere between Harry Potter and The Prestige — a wild tale of rival magicians set in an alternate version of early 1800s England, featuring the influence of faerie and real-world history alike. That’s one way to describe Susanna Clark’s epic novel Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, and if that makes the novel seem like a daunting piece of work to adapt for television, it is.

BBC One will soon air a Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell series, created by Clark, Toby Haynes, and Peter Harness, with Bertie Carvel and Eddie Marsan in the two lead roles. If this first Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell trailer is anything to go by, the BBC may have come up with a corker of an adaptation. Check out the lively footage after the jump. Read More »

Black Mass trailer

Hollywood doesn’t give us a lot of great gangster movies anymore, so when there’s one on the horizon that looks promising, we all get excited. Is this the next Scarface, White Heat, Goodfellas or Godfather? We don’t know yet, but Black Mass certainly has a shot at success.

Directed by Scott Cooper (Crazy Heart) the film stars Johnny Depp as Boston gangster Whitey Bulger, who became an FBI informant to help take down the Italian mob. The film co-stars Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Bacon, Dakota Johnson, Peter Sarsgaard, Jesse Plemons, Corey Stoll, Rory Cochrane, Sienna Miller, Adam Scott and opens in September.

Ang Lee 120 frames

Twenty-four frames per second has served us just fine for almost a hundred years. Modern technology, however, always strives for more, and filmmakers recently began to experiment with a higher frame rate. Shooting at higher frame rates would, in theory, make a moving image more realistic (because more info is being fed to us) and make it much more open to manipulation.

James Cameron is considering making the Avatar sequels in a higher frame rate and we all know Peter Jackson shot The Hobbit trilogy in 48 frames per second. That experiment is considered a failure because of the public outcry against the result, but I’m sure Jackson himself is happy with the raw results, even if audiences never saw it the way he intended.

Now, another filmmaker who has been flirting with high frame rate is taking a dive into that world. Sony executives confirmed that Ang Lee will shoot his next project, the Iraq war film Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, at 120 frames per second. Read the Ang Lee 120 frames news below. Read More »

It’ll be shot as a mock-documentary, like The Office, centered on the behind-the-scenes antics of making a new TV show. Through that, the show will delve into the personal lives of the characters for the first time ever. Read more about the new Muppets TV show below. Read More »
