James Cameron's Titanic in 3D!?
Next year will be the 100th anniversary of the year the infamous Titanic Sunk. Almost everyone knows about the boat, and it looks now James Cameron is setting his idea on a 3D Re-release. Cameron says  "There's a whole generation that's never seen Titanic as it was meant to be seen, on the big screen... and this will be Titanic as you've never seen it before, digitally remastered at 4K and painstakingly converted to 3D. With the emotional power intact and the images more powerful than ever, this will be an epic experience for fans and newcomers alike." So it looks like for the next generation this blockbuster, that used to stand firm as highest Grossing of all time with $1 Billion, which was soon overtaken by Avatar; another film Cameron directed, will be a reality. The winner of 11 academy Awards is coming back, for us to see in theatres and being honest, It will be great to see it in the cinema, being 16 I never had the chance.


This Week:

Kung Fu Panda 2 Releasing Worldwide:
On Thursday this week, the anticipated sequel to Kung Fu Panda will be released. Jack Black, the voice of Po is back again as the 'Kung Fu Master'. This time Po must defend the valley from a new villain called 'Emperor Albino' who threatens to take over China with a deadly weapon. With the help of The Furious Five, Po must defend the valley. This film actually seems to look like a decent sequel, and it will be good to see our overweight Panda in action once more. Lets hope for the best with this one. 





The Critical reception of Pirates of the Caribbean 4:
Well Pirates 4 finally became a reality and the critics have spoken. Rotten Tomatoes average score from the critics is 34%of them enjoyed it, with an average score of 5.1. However,  Internet Movie Database (IMDB) has gave it 7.3/10, based on 123 reviews and 7900 votes. For me I scored the film 66% because I was sort of half way there to enjoying it. It's going to be one of the most talked about films for a month or so, so get out and see this one and see what you think of it.

The Dark Knight Rises filming in IMAX
Warner Bros. has announced that filming has commenced on Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises.  Their announcement also confirms that the movie will be shooting on three continents: North America (Pittsburgh, New York, and Los Angeles), Europe (England and Scotland), and Asia (India).  Furthermore, the press release partially confirms our story when we said that Nolan was possibly shooting the entire film in IMAX.  It's not long now until we see Batman back in action. I can predict this film being a major box office smash, but let's hope it's a good film. The film stars Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Tom Hardy, Joseph-Gordon Levitt, Morgan Freeman, Gary Oldman, and Michael Caine.  The Dark Knight Rises opens July 20, 2012.





Pirates Week Over:
Last week the only films I reviewed where the Pirates of the Caribbean films. If you haven't checked any of them, then go take a look. All I can say it was an enjoyable series (which may not be over yet). A very enjoyable series, but gets worse as they go along. Maybe it's Pirates fatigue or just the writers are getting stupider with the plots each time.




Chris Hemsworth announces film: Snow White and the Huntsman
Straight away from the title you can tell they are trying to revamp fairy-tales and turn them into Twilightesque, dark toned movies. It just sounds ridiculous! Whoever felt the nee to take an innocent story like Snow White, and have her running about with a bow and arrow should get shot in the head with an arrow! The film is set to be released  2012 in December 21. It's a long way away, but I'm not looking forward to it.
