Film ain’t dead. It is having a hard time, but that combination of polyester and emulsion that records light with such a warm, natural “feel” still has its adherents. And those acolytes, including major movie industry players such as Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, and J.J. Abrams, are doing their bit to maintain an active business relationship between studios and Kodak.
Now, dealmaking revelations show that studios, pushed in part by the filmmakers named above, have made a deal with Kodak to purchase a certain amount of film each year, allowing film stock production to continue. Read More »

Here’s the second full trailer for Christopher Nolan‘s new film Interstellar. This is what we saw at Comic Con last week, and it shows so much more of the journey into space, and also of the Kubrick influence that plays heavily on parts of the film. We see more of the problems that plague Earth, and which lead to that journey. We also see more of Matthew McConaughey as he explores reaches far away from Earth, and get more of an idea of the toll that takes on him. But more than anything else, we see a stunning depiction of the universe. Watch the new Interstellar trailer below, hopefully on the biggest screen you have handy.

Somewhere at the cross-section of technological advancement and artistic expression lies Christopher Nolan. The director of The Dark Knight, Memento and Inception is well-known for being beholden to film, and in particular to IMAX film. IMAX continues to produce film cameras for directors like Nolan to use, but IMAX projection is quickly moving away from film. These days, an increasingly large percentage of IMAX theaters have digital projectors, and the company is working towards laser projection.
So where does that leave Nolan’s latest film, Interstellar? As in the past, Nolan shot much of Interstellar on IMAX film cameras. He would obviously prefer it be projected that on film, too. In a new interview, the president of IMAX said they’d oblige. Interstellar will be projected on IMAX film at “somewhere around 50″ theaters. Read More »

Matthew McConaughey needs to give his management team a raise. The actor had a huge 2013, appearing in three Oscar-caliber films including Dallas Buyers Club, for which he was given his first Oscar-nomination.
