Now we know that you've been gushing about how crazy great the trailers were from yesterday's Super Bowl, but there's one movie from that pile of trailers that wasn't there.

It's like a breath of fresh air when you walk into a movie theater and watch a film that's been one hundred percent created from a person's mind. There's no previous material that it's based off of for you to look up. The script's conception was done solely through one or two persons which blossomed into the movie that you see before you. This week we'd like to touch upon some of the original...

It must be good to be Joseph Gordon-Levitt—the gifted actor not only starred in some of 2012’s biggest and best films (The Dark Knight Rises, Lincoln and Looper), he was (still is?) one of the frontrunners for Bruce Wayne/Batman in the upcoming Justice League film series, as well as the Batman cinematic reboot.  And now, the lucky guy is now “in the...

TOPS List image
This has been a huge pivot point for movies in how they're made and distributed. 2012 was the year where the film industry turned its back on 35 millimeter film (which has been the standard for well over a century), with digital projection no longer just an option but the standard. At the same time a filmmaker like Paul Thomas Anderson shot a movie on 70mm - a format that hadn't been used...

liam neeson shoots in taken 2
It's no surprise that Taken 2 opened big, but doing fifty million was well above expectations. People loved the first film, and this looked to deliver more of the same. And unless the film collapses after opening weekend, it should do over a hundred million domestic. Also: poor, poor Frankenweenie.

Hotel Transylvania
There are three films opening this weekend: Hotel Transylvania, Looper and Won't Back Down. With the latter, I haven't heard much chatter about it, but that's partly because I'm in no way its target demographic, and neither are most people who read movie news websites. Selective and smart marketing could work for...

And in February 2013, we'll get A Good Day to Die Hard, the fourth sequel to that classic film. But will it be a case of diminishing returns? It's hard to say, but now...
