"Hateful Eight" Featurette Explains Panavision

Dark Horizons - Wed, 11/25/2015 - 4:44pm

As we know, the upcoming release of Quentin Tarantino's 182-minute long western thriller "The Hateful Eight" scores a two-week 70mm "roadshow release" at Christmas followed by a more standard wide opening on January 8th.

While cinephiles have a basic idea of what a 'roadshow' presentation entails (namely a musical overture and intermission) and why it's so special that 'Hateful' was shot on 65mm film using Ultra Panavision lenses. So, a new seven-minute featurette hosted by Samuel L. Jackson which explains the technology and the history of both roadshow presentations and Ultra Panavision.

Various key people involved from kid in a candy store Tarantino to the more austere cinematographer Robert Richardson discuss working with the same camera lenses that shot some of the biggest movies of all time and hadn't been used since the 1960s and have only been employed on ten other features.

"Force Awakens" PG-13, Omaze & Infinity Tease

Dark Horizons - Wed, 11/25/2015 - 4:44pm

Not unsurprisingly, Disney's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has scored a PG-13 rating just several weeks ahead of its release. The MPAA has given the rating for "sci-fi action violence".

All of the "Star Wars" films bar 2005's "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" have been rated PG. 'Sith' also scored a PG-13 for "sci-fi violence and some intense images". Eight of 2015's top ten earning films were also rated PG-13.

Next up, J.J. Abrams has posted a new video for Omaze's 'Force for Change' initiative with the clip also teasing a potential Mark Hamill appearance next week.

Finally, Disney has debuted a new 'Force Awakens'-themed "Disney Infinity" game trailer. The only playable characters in the Infinity version of the film are newcomers Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron and Kylo Ren but the trailer suggests other familiar faces will appear as well including BB-8, Han Solo and Chewbacca.

The 'Force Awakens' playset will be released the same day as the film - December 18th.

"Supergirl" To Cast A Teenage Superman

Dark Horizons - Wed, 11/25/2015 - 4:44pm

CBS's new DC Comics drama "Supergirl" has only teased Superman's presence so far - mostly cameos of a the character shot from behind or in shadow.

Now they're poised to introduce him on the show but not in the way you'd expect - a 13-year-old actor with "future leading man looks" is being sought to play the potentially recurring role of a teenage Kal-El says TV Line.

First appearing in the thirteenth episode of the first season, the character will appear via a series of flashbacks that will establish the cherished bond between him and Kara.

"Supergirl" started strong out of the gate on CBS but has since seen drop-offs. Even so, the most recent episode still managed to pull in a 1.5/5 rating and 7.2 million viewers in Live + Same Day ratings.

Jennifer Lawrence Announces Directing Debut

Dark Horizons - Wed, 11/25/2015 - 4:44pm

After an acting career that has succeeded on practically every level, Jennifer Lawrence is now branching out with her directorial debut feature, "Project Delirium," already in the works.

The story is basef on Raffi Khatchadorian's 2012 New Yorker article "Operation Delirium" which can be found here and deals with a secret chemical weapons testing program run by the U.S. Army during the Cold War.

Military doctors tested the effects of nerve gas, LSD and other drugs on 5,000 U.S. soldiers in Maryland in the 1950s and 1960s to gauge the effects on their brain and behavior. A class-action lawsuit was then brought by the surviving soldiers against the federal government.

Speaking with EW, the actress says: "It's funny, I've wanted to direct since I was 16 and always thought I should start making steps towards that. If I had tried to do it earlier, I wouldn't have been ready. Now I actually feel ready."

Lawrence and "Trainwreck" comedian Amy Schumer are also co-writing a screenplay together for a film in which the two will play sisters. Lawrence is now in cinemas with "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2" and has "Joy" opening at Christmas.

"Force Awakens" Tracking For $185-210M Open

Dark Horizons - Wed, 11/25/2015 - 4:44pm

Following comments by Disney chairman Alan Horn to temper expectations, the first tracking figures have arrived for J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" with these earlier opening weekend box-office predictions pegging the film at scoring somewhere between $185-210 million says Deadline.

Disney sources are being more cautious and putting the amount somewhere around $170 million, unfortunately projections for openings above $100 million are decidedly hard to peg down due to such a small sample size. The biggest December opening weekend to date was 2012's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" with $84.6 million.

The announcements come as J.J. Abrams revealed last night on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" that the first word spoken in the movie is "this". The same episode also included a comedic skit with Harrison Ford and Chewbacca settle a long-running feud which you can see below.

Finally, a new still of Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameon is online at Empire along with a bunch of different covers for the magazine which you can see in the gallery:
