The Muppets teach cinema etiquette in new video

The Muppets continue their effortless return to the zeitgeist by lending their talents to the brilliant cinema ad below.
 
It’s for the Americans, so we won’t get to see it in Blightly’s magnificent cinemas - they’re probably filming a bloody Orange version as we speak - but it’s just as funny on the small screen.

Is the Halo movie back on?

Has the Halo movie finally fought its way out of development hell?

“A film adaptation is set in 2012. It will be conducted jointly by two heavyweights of American cinema: Steven Spielberg and Dreamworks,” says the press release for Halo: Cryptum, after a little translation.

Human Centipede II to get UK cinema release?

“This work was passed with no cuts made,” says the ruling for The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) on the British Board of Film Classification website.
 
We never thought we’d hear those words about about a film that has been using the phrase “Banned in the UK” to sell itself to other countries.
 
It’s only when you look a little deeper you realise it’s not quite the Full Sequence, as the BBFC’s remarks include the line: “Cut version. Pre-cut by company in line with DVD version.”

Robert Downey Jr. takes on vintage detective Perry Mason

Has Robert Downey Jr. got the detecting bug?
 
First he pulls off an impressive turn as Sherlock Holmes (“upending the character’s long-standing stuffiness with contemporary verve while nailing the eccentric bent of Arthur Conan Doyle’s great British detective”). Now he fancies his chances as Perry Mason!
 
According to a report in Variety, a Perry Mason film would take place in the 1930s and be set in the “rough and tumble world” of early Los Angeles.

James Cameron to film Avatar sequels at 60 frames per second

There are some famous equations out there. E=MC². The Pythagorean Theorem: a² + b² = c². Now James Cameron has added a new one: more frames = better 3D.
 
Higher frame rates seem to be the way Hollywood is going and Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit is currently being shot at 48 frames per second (fps) rather than the standard 24fps most movies use today.
 
However, JamCam says he aims to shoot the Avatar sequels at 60fps to create top notch 3D.

Sigourney Weaver talks Ridley Scott’s Prometheus

Sigourney Weaver says she has spoken to Ridley Scott about Prometheus and is much more positive about the Alien prequel (which she’s not in) than Ghostbusters 3 (which she would be).

“I actually talked to Ridley about this very idea and I’m delighted he’s doing it. I feel it’s in good hands.”

Are you pleased that Prometheus has Ripley’s seal of approval?
