THE COLLISION: Episode 5 – Tweet Seats, 48 Frames-per-Second, THE FIVE-YEAR ENGAGEMENT, and More

     April 30, 2012


Last week was CinemaCon, and we reported on what Universal, Sony Pictures, Disney, Paramount, and Warner Bros. had to show off to journalists and theater owners.  While we showed you some of the posters, and Steve told you his thoughts on the footage he saw, on this week’s episode of The Collision, Adam, Dave, and I discuss not what’s coming to theaters, but what might be changing inside them.  Specifically, we explore if “Tweet Seats” (screenings or seats where patrons are allowed to use their phones) and 48fps will save theaters or just make the experience worse.  We also planned on discussing The Pirates! Band of Misfits and Safe, but since we were running long on time, we decided to give The Five-Year Engagement our sole attention.  Finally, we finished up with our recommendations, and you can check out trailers for those recommendations after the jump.

Adam’s Recommendation: Parks and Recreation (There’s not really a trailer, so here’s a clip from last week’s episode where Andy (Chris Pratt) gives a synopsis of Rambo):



Dave’s Recommendation: Leon: The Professional
