The movie “Avengers: Infinity War”, both the first and the second parts, will be filmed entirely using IMAX cameras, making them the first two movies to do so.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer rehashed in 16-bit stylings

The Internet can’t get enough of modern media being turned into 16-bit masterpieces. We’ve seen numerous examples via the always wonderful (and somewhat disingenuously named) 8-bit Cinema, for example, and some have even taken to creating philosophy videos in fun pixelated stylings. It’s no surprise, then, that someone has created a rendition of the latest Star Wars movie’s trailer rehashed as a 16-bit video game, bringing back memories of playing Star Wars games on the SNES. Video after the jump!

Tom Hardy wants to play Marvel’s ‘The Punisher’

It's no secret that some actors have pushed to take on the roles of iconic superheroes (and super villains), and now Tom Hardy can be counted among them. He has had many notable roles in popular movies over the years, and now he's pining for his own slot in the Marvel universe -- he will take just about anything he can get (within reason), it seems, but he is particularly interested in the role of "The Punisher", the anti-hero who brings about his own sense of justice to the streets.

Sony is making a Jump Street and Men in Black crossover movie

Sony is making a Jump Street and Men in Black crossover movie

This past December, the Sony hack led to emails being revealed that spoke of a Jump Street and Men in Black crossover movie. The company, obviously, didn’t confirm the information, but fast-forward a few months and we have now got word that, yes, the movie previously leaked will indeed be happening. It is an unusual enough movie that it provoked surprise when word of its first arose, and now doubly so now that we know it’s a real project.

The film will be starring, among other, Eric Roberts.

In their latest attempt to encourage those creators to stick around, YouTube will “release several feature length films over the next two years, all driven by YouTube stars”. The films will naturally debut on YouTube.

Transformers 5 movie confirmed, expected for 2017

Yesterday it was confirmed that a fifth Transformers movie will be produced, expanding the franchise yet again with what will hopefully be a reversal of the progressively disappointing film series. The confirmation was given during a Hasbro earnings call yesterday during which the company’s CEO Brian Goldner said the movie was expected to hit theaters in 2017. The movie itself hasn’t yet begun production — in fact, there’s not even yet a story in place, though it has been teased that we could end up seeing a storyline from any part of the Transformers’ history.
