Lets face it, 3D movies are not going away any time soon. Every year we’re seeing more and more films being released and re-released in 3D. So why not experience the 3D in the best way possible?
There are several 3D formats. RealD? Dolby 3D? IMAX 3D? XpanD 3D? Which is the best 3D format? I attempt to answer that question in this weeks edition of Q&A. We’ll take a look at the technical differences, and the advantages and disadvantages between the four big choices. We’ll show you why your local multiplex picked one format over another, and we even got some of the top 3D filmmakers and 3d experts to comment.

It sounds as if the Dimension remake of Hellraiser has stalled out once again. Can’t pretend to be sad about that, really. The film has been an on-again, off-again thing for years as the Weinsteins try to figure out a way to bring Clive Barker‘s unsettling tale of family tension, physical limits and sexual horror back to the screen. A number of ‘hot at the moment’ horror talents have been attached, then fallen away after spending time developing the story.
Most recently Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) have been attached to write and direct, but this week said it looked like their version wouldn’t happen. But you can see some concept art for the film they were trying to assemble. And it ain’t bad, or at least this Pinhead has something going for it. Check the gallery below. Read More »

The story of the Hellraiser remake that has long been in development at Dimension just keeps taking new turns. Quite a few possible directors have been attached to the project in the past few years, and just this week there was a rumor that Christian E. Christiansen, recently in talks to direct, then supposedly off the project, was not only back on but ready to make a PG-13 version of the story. Cue a massive wave of fan disinterest at the notion of a PG-13 Hellraiser.
Whether in response to that backlash (highly unlikely) or just because things hadn’t actually been sorted out yet (far more likely) there’s a new report that My Bloody Valentine 3D and Drive Angry 3D creators Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer will direct the new take on Clive Barker‘s horror landmark. Let me guess: it’ll be in 3D. Read More »
When I first started to hear about Drive Angry 3D, which Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D) is directing with Nicolas Cage, I expected something that might look rather like Faster, the Dwayne Johnson film that just got a teaser today.
But I should have known better — a bunch of set visit reports have just gone online, and Lussier, Cage and others involved in the film are making Drive Angry sound like a much more intense, violent film. And if the concept art is any reliable indication (50/50 chance of that) then it could be a positively apocalyptic experience. Read More »
