Men in Black 3 official trailer

The official trailer to Men in Black 3 is out, with Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin and Emma Thompson starring. The first one, to me, was great. I loved it, the second one felt like a paycheck... and this one actually looks great.

 

 

The trailer above shows off the story, where it seems K (Tommy Lee Jones) removes himself from this timeline and J (Will Smith) has to find him. Plenty of great special FX in between, and great actor Josh Brolin plays the stone-faced K in the past. The usual humor seems in place and I look forward to seeing the movie when it comes out.

Apple TV update brings TV shows to Australia, Canada and the UK

TV show downloads have been available for everyone, but for most, it has been locked down to just iTunes. This has now changed due to an over-the-air update to the Apple TV boxes in Canada, Australia and the UK.

Apple TV is now a source of TV downloading, for between $2.49 and $2.99, you can download full downloads of your favorite TV shows and watch them over and over again. Apple have just recently traded single TV show episode rentals for a TV show downloads service, which is great.

 

Every episode purchased will be streamed with no limit from the iCloud storage locker. If you have an Apple TV, turn it on, it should pop up saying an "update is available," update your Apple TV. If this doesn't work, go to Settings, General and then Update. After that, enjoy streaming TV episodes on the cheap!

Thought the Saw movies were over? Well, Lionsgate want to play a game...

Saw when it came out, was great. It was something different amongst a sea of the ageing horror genre, which has been stabbed, murdered, and raped behond Hollywood comprehension. While the Saw series ran kind of stale, you can't deny the twist endings and pure horror of those traps.

Saw 3D was the most expensive of the series thus far, it did receive a nice bonus in the box office due to 3D, but it failed to live up to expectations. This is why Saw didn't make an appearance this year, and why Paranormal Activity 3 was the only major horror Halloween release.

 

But, there will be more games to be played with Lionsgate Vice Chairman Michael Burns speaking to CNBC Tuesday about the potential merger with Summit Entertainment and has let this bit of information out onto horror fans ears (or eyes?):

 

I'm sure, some day, you'll see Saw back in the picture.

Michael Bay in talks to direct Transformers 4

Michael Bay did say he was done with Transformers after Dark of the Moon, the third outing in franchise. Shia LeBeouf has said the same thing multiple times, but the old saying goes "money talks," and I'm sure a lot of the green has been waved under Bay's nose.

Bay's next movie is a "low budget" flick called "Pain and Gain," after which would leave him open to direct a fourth Transformers movie in late 2012. Bay has had a long-held desire to make Pain and Gain and is reportedly one of the major road blocks in a fourth Transformer movie being made. If a deal is finalized, Pain and Gain will begin filming early next year to keep Bay happy, and then get him back behind the camera for Transformers 4 directly after Pain and Gain.

 

Bay has made a comment or two regarding another Transformers movie, he was quoted at the grand opening of Transformers: The Ride:

 

We're talking about it, but there's nothing right now. I'm going to do a tiny movie first, then we'll talk about it, if I potentially do it.

Popcorn Hour C-300 set to launch, is BDA licensed

Syabas have just announced the Popcorn Hour C-300, which is a BDA licensed unit that can play commercial Blu-rays and DVDs. The C300 sports Sigma's SMP 8647 SoC, USB 3.0 slave functionality, the usual NMT apps such as a BT downloader, Usenet downloader and NAS functions.

The Popcorn Hour C-300 goes down a different path with its BDA licensing, which costs quite a bit more over the A-300 player. If you want full Blu-ray support, you'll pay $349 compared to the A-300 which has a price tag of $219. A fair bit of a difference, but that's what the price is for the full Blu-ray license.

'24' feature-length movie is happening

24 is a show I really loved on TV. Kiefer Sutherland played the role so well and while you really need to suspend your disbelief when watching it (why doesn't he eat, shower, go to the toilet, recover from gun wounds, the list goes on), it's still a great show.

 

TweakTown image news/2/1/21805_12_24_feature_length_movie_is_happening.jpg

 

News of the movie has been rumored for quite a while now, but it seems that Imagine Entertainment and Fox have gotten the project off the ground and started the clock on '24'. Kiefer Sutherland is the key to this working and they're working around him and shooting when he's available, in April next year.

 

Nothing is known about the movie, but 24 finished its TV stint with Jack going on the run from the Government [again]. I'm guessing something will happen that requires him to come out of hiding, but how they'll get the "24 hour" feeling into a 90 - 110 minute movie is going to be the bigger question.

Get ready for The Hangover Part III

I still remember the first "Hangover" movie, I had read about it and heard good things pre-release, saw it at the cinema and thoroughly loved it. The second one was a bit "meh" and the third one whilst just confirmed is meant to "not adhere to the structure [of the first two movies]."

Hangover star Bradley Cooper confirmed with the National Ledger that a third "Hangover" movie could be coming soon. He said that the third installment should begin filming in September of 2012, and that he believes the movie will take place in California.

 

He told TV host Graham Norton:

 

I hope we'll start shooting next September. I know (director) Todd Phillips is working on the script. We stuck to the formula in the second one but the third would need to close the trilogy. I think it'll take place in L.A. and not adhere to the structure.

Apple TV is coming, details are finally worming out of the apple

I didn't think this would be this soon, details on Apple TV, but here we go. Apple analyst Gene Munster has reiterated his belief that Apple is set to launch a TV in 2012.

 

Munster made the comments at Business Insiders' IGNITION: Future of Media conference this morning. Gene is so sure that Apple TV is coming he told anyone thinking of buying a new TV set to actually wait, because Apple's TV is going to be that awesome.

I wrapped a few days ago so that will be the last time I'm taking that cowl off. I believe that the whole production wrapped yesterday, so it's all done. Everything's finished. It's me and Chris - that will be the end of that Batman era.
