DCMA takedowns sent to any Vimeo video with “Pixels” in it

What do you do when you have a multi-million dollar embarrassment of a film? Why issue take copyright notices on anything and everything that has the film's name on it, whether or not it make sense. As if the flack it received for the "Pixels" wasn't enough, now Columbia Pictures is reported to be behind a series of DCMA-induced removal of Video content. The alleged crime? Only that said videos have the word "pixels" in them. Nevermind if they're not even related to the film.

Today it was revealed that Michael Cera will be voicing Robin in the movie, joining a cast that largely comes from the LEGO Movie.

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’s Comic-Con trailer is pitch-perfect

The Man from U.N.C.L.E.’s Comic-Con trailer is pitch-perfect

Rebooting a 60s franchise without slipping into camp or cliché is tricky, but it seems 2015's The Man from U.N.C.L.E. may well manage it. The Guy Ritchie spy film has been more than a little overshadowed by the usual roster of superhero blockbusters, but if the latest five minute trailer for the movie from Comic-Con 2015 is anything to go by, it could be a safer bet for your theater dollars. Set during the 1960s, it brings together the best of US and Russian secret agents to foil a nuclear bomb plot.

Netflix’s original movies start arriving this October

It wasn't too long ago Netflix announced plans to make some original movies. The backlash in the industry was immediate. Some theaters revolted over same-day streaming releases, others called for boycotts. Not all were upset about the news, though, and it has largely boiled over. Netflix will proceeded with original movies the same way it has with original shows, and hopefully it won't let its users down. Though it has been vocal about its ambitions, the streaming service was quiet about its timeline. Now that has changed.

For surprise hit Tangerine, iPhone the movie camera of choice

For surprise hit Tangerine, iPhone the movie camera of choice

Necessity is the mother of invention, but moviegoers were still astonished to hear that unexpected Sundance 2015 hit Tangerine was filmed entirely on iPhone. The high-energy, sharply comic, but also touching film wasn’t the first to rely on Apple’s smartphone, but with a theatrical release this week it’s perhaps the highest-profile. After an early screening in San Francisco, I sat down with Tangerine’s writer/director Sean Baker and co-screenwriter Chris Bergoch to find out how the iPhone helped shape a movie that at times can be as challenging to watch as it is rewarding.
