    Anyone who has read the Walter Isaacson biography of Steve Jobs (or just followed his story over the years) knows there’s a lot of source material to draw from when crafting a movie. But Steve Jobs biopic screenwriter Aaron Sorkin revealed today at Hero Summit that his movie, at least as currently conceived, will feature only three 30-min scenes presented in real-time, depicting… Read More

    Timing Is Everything: Indie Movie Discovery Platform Prescreen To Close Its Doors

    It was just last September that we covered the launch of Prescreen, the startup founded by former Groupon and Zoosk execs that aimed to help independent films find the publicity they nearly always lack. To do so, they built a curated, on-demand video platform that would give filmmakers and distributors an alternative to traditional ad and distribution channels, while giving users an easy way… Read More

    MovieTickets.com to sell movie tickets on the Xbox 360

    In a lateral move that is akin to a car company selling buggy whips, MovieTickets.com will start selling movie tickets through an Xbox 360 interface, thereby allowing players to experience a thing called “real life” and perhaps take part in a common courtship ritual known as a “date.” As you see from the description, you don’t actually buy the movie tickets via… Read More

  • Predators Trailer: "This planet is a game, sir"

    What is it with these Predators? Don’t they have anything else to do besides hunting and killing human beings? Don’t they have some kind of Predator opera to go to or Predator literature to create? Anyway, this is the trailer for Predators that we’ve been waiting for and it looks pretty cornhole. You know it’s going to be a rough movie when 90% of the trailer dialogue… Read More

    Atari's Missile Command (from 1980) to become live-action movie

    In case you needed another indicator Hollywood has run out of ideas, here is a new one for you: Atari is about to sell the movie rights to Missile Command, a shooting game that hit arcades back in 1980, to 20th Century Fox and another movie production company. Getting the license doesn’t necessarily mean we ever get to see a Missile Command movie on the big screen, but a first step has… Read More

    NSFW: Is Porn Movie Merchandising the Next Big Money Maker?

    The right merchandise can turn a movie into a mega movie franchise. A movie licensing industry that accounts for 25% of all toys sold in a typical year, the right toys, video games, clothing, accessories, iPhone apps, and action figures can rake in the serious bucks. Numbers released last week for “Transformers 2″ show that the movie led to toy sales worth $592 million only six… Read More

  • Avatar toys go augmented-reality, courtesy of Mattel and Total Immersion

    This is a crazy fun demo of the new Avatar toys by Mattel. Each toy includes a little card that is scannable via webcam and creates an on-screen augmented reality robot or character.

Total Immersion made the technology and even added a… Read More

  • Review: G-Force

    In what could be a first for us I’m going to talk about G-Force, the new Jerry Bruckheimer Disney movie. To be clear: this is a movie for kids. I have a kid. So I saw it. Anyway. Where to begin: this is a movie about guinea pigs with special powers who can talk and fight against forces that will destroy our great nation. In this movie they fight against a nefarious consumer electronics… Read More

    NSFW: Totally weird "Robo-Geisha" movie trailer

    First, let me say the movie “Robo-geisha” is for real (see the imdb entry). Second, I rarely use the word “weird” when I blog about Japanese stuff, but the trailer for this film is weird (and thankfully in English). And third, the trailer is NSFW and definitely not suitable for children. Read More
