First, there's a strange question: how and why are Warner Bros. and Paramount co-producing Christopher Nolan's sci-fi epic, 'Interstellar'? Then there's the strange answer: because Warner Bros. wanted to be part of Nolan's next film so much that they were willing to give another studio the rights to future 'Friday the 13th' and 'South Park' movies to make it happen.
'Star Trek 3' has been the topic of discussion for a lot of Trekkies, especially now with J.J. Abrams moving over to direct the upcoming 'Star Wars: Episode 7' movie and a certain Enterprise actor or two who said they'd be disappointed if he decides to not return for a third film. With or without Abrams, however, (and it'll probably be with, if only on a production basis) is Paramount already prepping 'Star Trek 3' for 2016?
"To 3D or not to 3D?" is a question moviegoers often have to ask themselves when hitting the multiplex to see the latest blockbuster, but the debate doesn't stop at the paying customer. Sometimes it's the filmmakers themselves who are dubious about the technology, even as they work with it. This issue has come to light after J.J. Abrams revealed that he himself was not sold on converting his latest, 'Star Trek Into Darkness,' into 3D initially. In fact, he had it forced upon him by the studio.
It was no secret that the 'Paranormal Activity' franchise would probably add a fifth movie to its roster, and this direction seemed all the more forthcoming after the fourth film's recent box office success opening weekend. Now the news is official -- we can expect another installment. But that's not all.
Just the other day, we remarked on how little is known about the plot of 'Paranormal Activity 4,' but then one of our intrepid movie critics got to see a "work-in-progress screening" of the film at Fantastic Fest and revealed a ton of details. Now you can see bits of what he saw through the latest trailer for the October spook-a-thon. Check it out after the break!
'The Loved Ones' is finally hitting theaters this summer courtesy of Paramount. The wicked little horror film - described as a cross between 'Sixteen Candles' and 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' - that blew up SXSW in 2010 has a brand new trailer to get you excited about this bloody prom flick.
The trailers for 'The Dictator' have certainly underwhelmed and given us little more than yet another ethnic Sacha Baron Cohen alter ego. In a smart move, Paramount just released the opening scene from the film proving that whoever cut that trailer together before had no idea how to sell this film.
Found footage has proven highly profitable, particularly for horror films. Following the success of 'Paranormal Activity' and 'The Devil Inside,' Paramount's Insurge banner is understandably riding that gravy train until it ends -- and now they want to marry that profitable gimmick with another highly profitable title: 'The Ring.'
