Denzel Washington Never Goes to the Movies

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celeb News,

Denzel WashingtonDenzel Washington never goes to the cinema because the paparazzi ruin the experience for him.

The 58-year-old actor may have a distinguished acting career, but he admits he's not really a fan of taking a trip to the movies himself because he hates being bombarded by photographers afterwards: "I don't go to the movies; well, you know, it becomes a drag. You've got to go to certain theatres. I went to Century City [in Los Angeles, California] once and by the time I came out, they were waiting, the paparazzi, so it kind of messes up your experiences."

The Flight star claims the last film he can remember watching at the cinema was The Hurt Locker - which was released in 2008 - but he is adamant he must have been to see a flick on the big screen at least once in the last five years to watch a movie. "I'm embarrassed to say I'm not much of a film-goer ... I haven't been to the movies in a while. I'm trying to think of the last movie I saw in the theater. It wasn't The Hurt Locker, it had to have been one since then!" he explained.

Jonas Brothers

Disney’s held a press conference recently to drum up publicity before the release of their new concert film, Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, scheduled to hit theaters this Friday.

“We can’t give too many details as to what cities or how many cities we’ll be going to,” Nick Jonas stated. “This is a concert experience not only because you’re watching a show, but because you’re a part of it. You’re a part of our family in the movie and we want to be there with them when they see it.”

Isn’t that sweet? But will even this clever bit of promotion help the Jonas Brothers movie beat the flick at the box office? Not bloody likely.

NFL Offers Live 3D Game

Football Field

The NFL decided to broadcast the first live 3D football game. It was shown in theaters in LA, Boston and New York last night. Team owners, journalists and producers were invited to see the technology developed by 3ality Digital. They planted three 3D crews, with their own commentary, next to 2D counterparts for the game between the Oakland Raiders and S.D. Chargers. They call it an “up close, personal, visceral experience.” We call it a little too close to the action and were glad to hear that it is not going to happen on a large scale any time soon.

Racier Trailers Coming to Theaters

Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Trailers,

red band trailer

If you purchase a ticket at a Regal Cinemas theater anytime soon, you may see something new on your movie screen:  a red band trailer.

These - intended for ‘restricted audiences’ only - would contain scenes viewable at R, NC-17 or unrated films.  They would be mixed in with the normal green band previews that ‘have been approved for all audiences’ by the MPAA.

Although clips with more adult matter - such as crude and sexual content - are not new to the internet, theater chains have been wary of playing them fearing they’d be viewed by the wrong demographic.

Digital Movie Screens Come to Hollywood

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Corporate News, Misc. Tech, Movies,

Hannah MontanaAccess Integrated Technologies says it has joined with Disney, 20th Century Fox, and Paramount to convert 10,000 movie screens to digital. AIT figures it will cost up to $700 million and take 3 years to complete the project, which was started in October with the transformation of 3,700 theaters. For an additional $25,000 for extra hard and software, the same screens can be used for 3-D movies, such as the recent Hannah Montana flick. Hollywood knows that they make more money than 2-D, so we guess the amount will pay for itself since we don’t see any bigtime celebs offering to take pay cuts.
