Tornado chasers' truck shoots IMAX from inside storms

By James Martin on August 22, 2011

Filmmaker Sean Casey has been chasing tornadoes for more than a decade. And it takes one tough ride to get in and out of the violent storms safely. We met up with the storm chaser this week at The Tech Museum in San Jose, Calif., where his IMAX film, Tornado Alley, opens today. Driving directly into violent storms with an Imax camera, Casey attempts to document a high-definition view of a direct hit from an F3 tornado, giving moviegoers a large-format view of one of nature's most violent displays. (F3 tornadoes are considered severe and characterize a storm with winds of 158 mph to 206 mph.) Read More on news.cnet.com...

Watch: Trailer For Tsui Hark’s IMAX Sized ‘Flying Swords of Dragon Gate’ With Jet Li

By Kevin Jagernauth on August 22, 2011

While Tsui Hark certainly has his fans around the world, for us, we’re mostly waiting for him to make something to match the inspired audacity of 2000’s “Time And Tide.” As anyone who has seen that movie knows, it’s a ridiculously awesome and totally bonkers action flick that still has some of its setpieces seared into our brain (the shootout between guys scaling two tenement buildings anyone?). Everything since has been kind of disappointing, just lacking the sheer balls-out verve of that flick. Read More on blogs.indywire.net...

Sneak peek: 'Happy Feet Two in 3D'

By Scott Bowles on August 18, 2011

George Miller wasn't looking to make back-to-back cartoons about the environmentally fragile residents of Antarctica. But Mother Nature can be a wicked executive producer, Miller has learned. "I was all set to do another Mad Max in Australia," he says. "And it kept raining. And raining. And raining. After about 12 months, we decided to do Happy Feet Two instead." Miller, a chameleon director whose credits include the Mad Max series, the Babe franchise and now the Happy Feet story, says he plans to return to the post-apocalyptic world of Mad Max when he's done with the pre-apocalyptic world of Happy Feet Two in 3D, which hits theaters Nov. 18.

HOLLYWOOD - It's full speed ahead for Tom Cruise. Looking to reactivate his career with the Dec. 21 release of Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Cruise has been keeping busy these days, what with his big-screen singing debut in the rock musical, Rock of Ages, currently shooting and due out next summer.
