Mad Max: Fury Road directed “almost as a silent movie”

Speaking in an interview this week on Mad Max: Fury Road, director George Miller revealed some interesting bits about the now 4-movie long series. Hitting theaters just days ago, the fourth film in the series has received rave reviews - rare for a sequel, and even rarer for a film that's 30 years its predecessor's senior. Miller suggested this week that to make this film he didn't want to go any sort of traditional route. This entire series of films isn't a traditional sort of story, after all.

Mad Max: The Wasteland is the (working) title of the next film

Director George Miller confirms not only that there are two more films in the Mad Max film series planned, but that the next has a title already. While this may end up just being a working title, Miller suggests that they've got the name "Mad Max: The Wasteland" attached. Not too much of a departure from any other Mad Max film, to be sure. It also confirms that we're not really going too far away from the environment we've been in for the past three films.*

Popcorn Time gains an in-browser viewing option

Popcorn Time gains an in-browser viewing option

Popcorn Time, the so-called “Netflix of piracy”, went from a computer application to a mobile app, and now a new website is offering it as an in-browser option — meaning users are now able to watch pirated movies inside their web browser, perhaps proving the most simple version of the app to become available. The upside to this (for the pirates out there, at least) is that there’s no actual download or installation needed — one just browses, clicks a title, and it starts playing. The movie industry shudders.

Here is an Avengers fan so huge not even the Hulk could stop him.

And it easily outclasses that 4 foot tall Hulkbuster action figure that was recently prototyped. Even more impressive is that 26-year-old Xing Yile completed this monstrous project in a mere 2 months.

Pixar co-founder says smartphone, GoPro filmmaking are the future

It’s already happening on a small scale, but mobile videography just got a huge nod from Pixar co-founder John Lasseter.

Some films, like the independent ‘Romance in NYC’, have been filmed entirely on iPhone, and released into major film festivals; it’s likely just the start, too.

Jem and the Holograms trailer is just the worst

Jem and the Holograms trailer is just the worst

The first full-length trailer for the live-action movie Jem and the Holograms is released to mixed reviews. If you were looking for something Truly Outrageous, you might be in luck. For all the wrong reasons. What you're going to get isn't the cartoon version of Jem. You're not going to get something campy and fantastical. Instead you're just going to get Pitch Perfect again. Just in time for Pitch Perfect 2! And lucky you, this movie was given a budget of $5 million to shoot, shot as fast as possible, made into a Chick-Flick while its 80's-era partners are given more than 100x that budget.

Science Fiction: Roswell Alien Slides Debunked

Science Fiction: Roswell Alien Slides Debunked

Several sixty-year-old slides, recently claimed by their owner, Adam Dew, to be photos of aliens from Roswell, New Mexico, have been debunked. Just this past week, several people - citizens, UFO "believers" and even some so-called experts in the field - were invited to a New Mexico event to screen a documentary on the slides. As it turns out, the images show no more than the remains of a mummified child. The child currently resides in the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, after having visited San Francisco on temporary loan in the 1940s.
