Paramount has released a trailer for James Cameron’s 3D update of his 1997 film Titantic. I think the verdict is in on this movie, and since the trailer is on my computer, I can’t really comment on the 3D. However, I was reminded of how much I hate “My Heart Will Go On.” Click here for what Steve though of the footage he saw last month.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates, Jonathan Hyde, Victor Garber, Bernard Hill, David Warner, Gloria Stuart, and Bill Paxton. Titanic opens in 3D on April 6, 2012. It will also be re-released in 2D.
I’m among the defenders of Tron: Legacy. Mostly because of the visuals (duh), but I think the filmmakers put a lot of interesting ideas up on screen, then failed to explore them fully. Legacy does not live up to its full potential, but lays the groundwork for a great sequel.
We know that Disney always hoped to establish a franchise. The studio commissioned a sequel script last April and is reportedly very close to an official greenlight. (Not to mention the animated series Tron: Uprising on Disney XD.) But the extent of Disney’s planning may surprise you. A new report suggests that Disney already has a teaser for Tron 3 in the can, and it will appear as a Tron: Legacy DVD extra. As long as you don’t mind spoilers for the teaser or Tron: Legacy, hit the jump for details.
[Update: There's a listing for "Additional Production Material" for the Tron: Legacy DVD that, if it is this teaser, adds a bit of intrigue to the story. Details below]
The Black Death is spreading to American shores with the premiere of a red band trailer. The film, starring Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings), is set during the first outbreak of the bubonic plague in 14th century England. Bean plays a knight, Ulric, who is tasked with discovering the secret of a small group of villagers who can resist the plague’s effects. He is guided by a young monk, played by Eddie Redmayne (The Other Boleyn Girl). Black Death also stars David Warner (TRON) and Carice van Houten (Valkyrie), directed by Christopher Smith (Severance).
If you were a fan of fellow LotR alum Karl Urban’s brutal Viking saga Pathfinder, you’re sure to love the Dark Ages violence of Black Death. Hit the jump for the red-band trailer and full synopsis.
