ESCAPE PLAN 2 - In cinemas and on Digital HD from 20th July

 
Strap yourself in for the second instalment of the explosive and electrifying action franchise, as the on-screen forces of Sylvester Stallone (Creed, The Expendables) and Dave Bautista (Blade Runner 2049, Guardians of the Galaxy) combine in Escape Plan 2, available in cinemas and on Digital HD from 20th July 2018, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.


Years after Ray Breslin (three-time ACADEMY AWARD© nominee and GOLDEN GLOBE© winner Sylvester Stallone) fought his way out of the escape-proof prison called "The Tomb," he's organised a new top-notch, for-hire security force that includes some of the best in the business. But when one of Breslin's team goes missing – inside a computerised techno-terror battle-maze known as HADES, where human combatants brawl like beasts – Breslin goes back into the secret lock-up to save his friend. To attempt this near impossible mission, he enlists his old friend Trent Derosa (Dave Bautista) and the returning surveillance expert Hush (Curtis '50 Cent' Jackson), to help him return from the gauntlet with both his friend and his life.


Following on from the success of the first film in 2013, Escape Plan 2 aims to build on the story and characters that connected so well with action movie fans the first time around, elevating them to a whole new white knuckle ride into the dystopian land of the dead. With some of the action genre's biggest hitters coming together, Escape Plan 2 promises audiences one hell of a ride.

UK TRAILER: - STUDIO 54 will be released in the UK & Ireland on 15 June


STUDIO 54 was the epicentre of ’70s hedonism—a monumental magnet for beautiful stars, casual sex, and mounds of cocaine, a den of excess that defined its own rules and enshrined the ostracized, queer, and fabulous. Matt Tyrnauer (Valentino: The Last Emperor) chronicles the rise and fall of this nightclub’s founders: two best friends from Brooklyn, Ian Schrager and Steve Rubell, who conquered New York City only to have it crumble before their eyes.

With rare footage, a parade of colourful patrons and staff, and brutally honest interviews with Schrager himself, Studio 54 is a riveting study in contradictions. Inside the palatial theatre-turned-disco, the crowd revelled in an atmosphere of total acceptance, whether drag queen, octogenarian, waiter, or celebrity. Yet outside, a frenzied, excluded mob yearned to be noticed by the doorman and ushered into the sanctum of pulsating love. Schrager and Rubell’s glittering creation sprang from carefree naiveté and unbridled ambition—yet those same instincts managed to destroy it. This bracing story reveals how even the most culturally potent and transformative phenomena can be vulnerable and fleeting.

Sci-Fi Legend Neil Johnson’s 14th Feature Film announced; Tracey Birdsall to star


Neil Johnson will direct EVOLUTION WAR, a “Terminator”-esque science fiction film headlined by award-winning actress Tracey Birdsall.

Birdsall is fresh from the award-winning Sony release “Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter” and newly-released rom-com “Who’s Jenna…?”. In EVOLUTION WAR,  she  plays Angel-D, a hero of the great machine war who returns to Earth to discover a terrible plague has wiped out humanity.

The film reunites Birdsall & Johnson, who have collaborated together on several films, including the upcoming “The Time War”.

Currently shooting, EVOLUTION WAR is described as a mix of “Terminator” and “Pacific Rim”, a science fiction film which sees the hero forced to build an army of robots to battle an army of mysterious creatures that are taking over the surface of the Earth.

The film also features Marilyn Ghiglioti (“Clerks’’), Brooke Lewis (‘’Starship: Rising’’), and Tony Gibbons (who voiced Hoagland in Johnson’s ‘’Rogue Warrior: Robot Fighter’’).

EVOLUTION WAR is expected to release late Summer

Interview with Steeve Leonard and Caroline Labreche - Directors of Radius


Ahead of Horror Channel’s UK TV premiere screening of RADIUS, directors Steeve Leonard and Caroline Labreche talk last minute casting, corpses and making the FrightFest audience cry…

Horror Channel is broadcasting the UK TV premiere of RADIUS. Are you a fan of the channel?

Steeve: We unfortunately don’t have Horror Channel in Quebec, but from what I’ve seen from you guys, it looks awesome. I would’ve loved growing up with that on my TV!


The film has a highly original premise. Where did the inspiration come from?

Steeve: It was a long process, 4 years I think… At first we wanted to do something like Oldboy, with a man and a woman who realize they share a dark past; that’s where the serial killer aspect came to mind. We didn’t write much based on that alone. Then later, when the radius of death idea came to us, we decided to merge these two ideas and see if we could intertwine them together.


The film carries us into deep emotional waters as well as being a cleverly-spun Sci-fi thriller. What is the underlying message you want people to take from the film?

Caroline: We always wanted people to exit the movie and start asking themselves: “if your memory is erased, are you still guilty for your past crimes, can you be convicted if you truly don’t remember”? And we, as the writers, still don’t have a clear answer for this. Liam’s redemption (or at the very least, his punishment) was always something along the lines of what we have now. Our idea was that upon learning and absorbing the fact that he used to be utter scum, the good half of Liam would turn out to be stronger, and it would make him do the right thing. But again, does he truly deserve to die, now that his good half is aware and repentant? Hmm…discuss!


What were the biggest challenges you faced making the film?

Steeve: As with any film, big or small, the answer is: time and money. I’m sure Ryan Johnson (Star Wars) would say the same thing.


Is it true that the lead actor, Diego Klattenhoff, was only cast four days before shooting started?

Caroline: Yep! So was Charlotte Sullivan (Jane). Sometimes casting just happens that way. Getting the right actors on board is a combination of timing, budget, schedule, personality, marketability, etc… And sometimes getting all of these things to click takes a while. We got our leads late in the process, but we got exactly what we needed: talented actors who took the material and made it their own. We love the work they did.


There’s a funny production story about you trying to make a corpse out of a sack of potatoes. We’d like to know more!

Steeve: There’s a scene in the movie where (SPOILERS Diego has to dump a wrapped up body in a pond, and, we didn’t have the necessary dummy to wrap up. Anyway, the props department had to work fast, so they told us they’d make a dummy out of 50 pound sacks of potatoes. We said okay, and they built the thing — wrapped it up in a tarp and everything, and it looked like a human body. So… on the day, we get Diego on the boat and the crew hands him this wobbly, 200 pound body, and then we get the camera ready — we had a drone above him, too, and we were pretty excited about that.

So anyway, we get ready and then we tell him to drop this thing in the water on the count of three, and we were gonna do this thing where, as soon as the body starts to sink, we’d fly the drone upwards really fast, creating this cool dizzying shot. So we countdown: 1…2…3… he dumps it in and… It. Does. Not. Sink.  And then it hits all of us at the same time: oh… yeah… potatoes float. I felt my soul step outside my body and slap me in the back of the head for being such a moron. Anyway, we tried to punch holes in the tarp to make it sink. We tried it again but it never really worked. So we had to move on without that shot. I made it work in the edit, but that cool dizzying shot never got made.


When the film received its European Premiere at FrightFest last year it got a tremendous reception from both critics and the audience. What are your abiding memories of the event?

Steeve: Obviously, the UK showings were a great treat for us. Everybody was nice and very supportive of the film. But I think the two major moments Caro and I will take away are, firstly, the moment we walked into the theatre and saw the Imax-sized screen the film was going to be shown on. At that moment, we felt very small, very undeserving, very nervous. It was like: “oh crap, how will the film look and feel on such a huge screen”? But when it started, it was also very cool, very epic to see. The second moment was at the end of the movie, when Liam pulls the trigger: I turned around and looked at the audience, and I saw a bunch of guys wiping the corners of their eyes. I turned to Caro and said: “I can’t believe it, we made English people cry! This is working!” It was a good feeling!


How did you start your filmmaking career together?

Steeve: Caro and I have been making films ever since we enrolled in film school. We’ve always worked together. Caro has done some side projects without me — she’s actually shooting another movie this fall. One day I fear that she’ll finally realize that I serve no purpose whatsoever in our directing duo, hahaha!


How would you describe the chemistry / working relationship between you?

Steeve: On set, Caro usually deals with the technical side of things, while I go and talk to the actors. Then we meet up and discuss everything, make some adjustments, and that’s about it. We do a take or two, then try some variants that either me or her have in mind.

Caroline: we also like to be extra prepared. We discuss and over-analyse everything in advance, we storyboard as much as possible — we always have a shot list on hand. When we get on set, we usually have an answer for every situation.

Steeve: and we never argue on set. We keep that for home, hahaha!


Finally, what’s next?

Caroline: We’re currently working on another sci-fi thriller, this time with horror undertones.  We can’t say much right now, as we’re getting ready to shop the script all over town.  We also have a robot sci-fi film and a slasher film with a neat twist in the works.

Radius is broadcast on Fri 25 May, 9.00pm, Horror Channel

Exclusive Interview with George Russell - The Director of Troll Inc.


This May, you won’t find a more newsworthy, valid and significant film than Troll Inc., a powerful chronicle on the world’s most famous internet troll.

Director George Russell‘s spellbinding expose on Andrew ‘Weev’ Auernheimer will be available on VOD May 22.

From innocent meme culture to malicious propaganda, the avant-garde has moved online and they have an agenda. Emerging from deep within underground computer programming culture, internet trolls are disenfranchised and using the click-bait obsessed mass media to propel their performance art into the mainstream. Whether mischievously entertaining the masses, influencing presidential elections, or manipulating journalists and corporations, trolls are either saving us or driving our culture off of a cliff.

Prosecuted as a whistleblower by the Federal Government, Troll Inc. follows the world’s most famous Internet troll, Andrew Auernheimer, and his merry band of provocateurs as they take on corporate America, the media, and political-correctness.

Hung on a meticulously framed, no-holds-barred interview with Auernheimer that took three, six-hour days, and at which the only sustenance served was plenty of high-definition rope, the film features case studies of his most notorious, just-barely illegal actions, like that time he revealed a gaping security hole in the iPad’s partnership with AT&T and when he erased all books with homosexual content from Amazon dot anything-but-calm.

After viewing Troll. Inc., its hard not to wonder if the grand scale of these invasions into our privacy and passions, by virtue of their regularity and overwhelming scope, didn’t somehow numb us to the very notion of privacy and normalizing this new Internet “fake news” attack culture, paving the way for the Kremlin to master the art of the troll and undermining our democracy right under our noses and in our own virtual backyards.

We spoke to Mr. Russell ahead of the VOD release.


Where and when did the idea to make TROLL INC. come from? What was the motivation?

I was reviewing books for popmatters.com and was assigned Parmey Olson’s We Are Anonymous: Inside the Hacker World of Lulzsec, Anonymous and The Global Cyber Insurgency. Some guy named “weev” was mentioned in the book repeatedly and sounded intriguing. I was supposed to go to Afghanistan and shoot a documentary on an Army unit, but they were reassigned and the film fell apart so I’d been looking around for a topic for another film.


Is this a world you yourself were familiar with before the movie?

Prior to making the film I’d never heard of Internet trolling or knew anything about it. When this started it was back in 2012. At that time you had to be involved in Internet subculture to actually know anything about trolling. LulzSec was the beginning of that culture exploding into the mainstream as they combined trolling with hacking and used memetic imagery in their stunts, and they were regularly featured on television news. Even at that time 4chan still was relatively underground and most people would have no idea what you were talking about if you mentioned that site.


I imagine your knowledge of the world greatly increased as the film kicked in?

Yes, I became immersed in the culture and in all of its significance and absurdity. It may have been the last proper subculture in the US, as in a culture that is unknowable to an outsider. It had its own language, imagery, myths, beliefs and initiation rituals. It combined elements of art, music, computer know-how and an underlying sense of alienation from the mainstream. All components of a new birth of culture. Now, memetic imagery is mainstream and sold on t-shirts at the mall. The same thing happened to the punk movement. It’s hard to imagine but people once thought punk rockers foretold the end of civilization. Maybe they were right but were just wrong about the timeline.


What kind of research did you do into this world?

When I started on the film it was December 2012, moving into 2013. It was a lifetime ago in terms of how fast culture and world events are moving. There wasn’t much research to be done beyond jumping into the world and seeing what I could find out. I got on IRC, I hung out on 4chan, I read Gabriella Coleman’s work and an advanced copy of Wendy Phillip’s This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things. It took me back to my adolescence of dialing into BBS’s and hanging out with friends who would phone phreak (steal telephone service). It surprised me that trolling came out of computer programming culture. The first actual, verified, Internet troll was a woman computer programmer in the 1990s who operated on Usenet under the moniker Netochka Nezvanova (the name of Dostoevsky's first novel). She was part of what would have been called early Gen X, the whole cyberpunk thing. It was her and her boyfriend sharing an account, actually. But, the point is she would go into discussion forums on Usenet (the largest online discussion group at the time) and mess around with all these earnest academics and computer programmers. They weren’t used to someone arguing in bad faith and purposefully disrupting a discussion so they had no idea what to do with her. I actually tracked her down. She works as a software engineer and sales person at a music production software company. She wouldn’t agree to go on camera but if you look hard enough on the web there is an interview with her by some European documentary filmmaker from way back in the late 90s or thereabouts. It’s a trip.


And into Andrew, himself, did you research him before you tracked him down?

Beyond what was in Parmy Olson’s book and what was available on the web, no. There was a New York Times Magazine article by Mattathias Schwartz that many people referenced, and actually Schwartz made him famous with that article by portraying him as an absolute bad ass. That article turned up in the FBI information I got through a freedom of information act request. So, wherever Schwartz is nowadays, he is the one responsible for Andrew Auernheimer.


And how did you track him down?

Andrew is one of the few, possibly the only, Internet trolls who is open and public about it. Most people remain anonymous because they have normal jobs and families, stuff like that. At the time Andrew was on Twitter and you could just tweet at him and he’d usually respond. This was right before his federal court case. He said we should talk after the case was decided. Sometime in 2013 he was found guilty and at that point he agreed to be part of the film. We shot the interviews with him during the time he was still free but waiting around for sentencing.


Did he have any requirements when he agreed to do the movie?

No requirements. He’s a savvy guy when it comes to the media. He embodies the saying that no publicity is bad publicity. He truly doesn’t care what people say about him.


What is the motivation of the film for you?

The initial motivation was the need to make a film and having a subject present itself that other people were not trying to approach. You’d be surprised how much competition there is in the documentary world for good subjects. Then, the novelty of discovering this hidden culture that had arisen and flourished all of its own accord away from the prying eyes of commercialism became the draw for me. It was the creativity of the human spirit in all its modern beauty and trashiness, humor and depravity on full display. Then, to discover most of these troll practitioners were usually hyper-intelligent misfit computer programmers made it all the more interesting. The legal stuff was a necessary part of the story but not something that I found appealing. People are prosecuted all the time frivolously and Andrew found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, having pissed off the wrong people. What made this story different was that he was the embodiment of this troll culture that we’ll never see again in its original state, but that is now permanently part of our world.

Ideal Home - Trailer and Poster


In cinemas and on Digital HD from 6th July, 2018

Comedy superstars Steve Coogan (Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa, The Trip) and Paul Rudd (I Love You, Man, Ant-Man) star as a bickering couple who have to deal with a serious reality check, when a long lost grandson shows up looking for his family, in the hilarious Ideal Home, available in cinemas and on Digital HD from 6th July 2018, courtesy of Signature Entertainment.

Flamboyant TV chef Erasmus Brumble (Coogan) along with his director and long-term partner Paul (Rudd), are happy going through life playing as hard as they work. But suddenly they have to decide whether to grow-up or continue down their well-trodden path, when Erasmus’s estranged grandson, Bill (played by Jack Gore), unexpectedly turns up at their door, after his father is taken away to serve time in prison.

Having another mouth to feed can always come with its strains, but the couple’s fears that they are not yet cut out to be devoted parents become apparent very quickly, with their lavish social lifestyle (and an extensive erotic film collection) getting in the way of their duties as responsible guardians. As unsuited as this small family may initially seem, the loving bond they eventually form is threatened to be broken when Bill’s father warns he’ll take him away upon his release from jail.

The kings of comedy come together for this year’s must-see film hilarity, when Ideal Home hits cinemas!

The festival was designed to help spotlight both emerging talent within the horror genre and those who have helped build it. Over two days, Fractured Visions will be showing eight new feature films and two classics along with ten new short films. The goal is to source the best in today's independent horror cinema. The festival will be offering awards in a number of categories, and the line-up of judges includes filmmakers, distributors and sales agents. The winning filmmakers will then be provided with an offer of world sales representation and UK distribution.

Co-Festival Director Phil Escottt commented:
‘The main goal of the festival is to help filmmakers avoid the sharks that are circling the UK film industry. Having been through it myself and having experienced both the good and the bad that the industry offers new filmmakers, we’re trying to help as many filmmakers as we can avoid the pitfalls that await many newcomers to the industry - especially within the horror genre. We also want to bring the best of the genre to the big screen for fans to experience films that would otherwise be destined for DVD shelves or VOD release because they have not been backed by a studio.’

The Poster
The idea behind the poster was simple: a hand-drawn EC comics homage that harks back to the golden age of horror and comic imagery. To bring this to life, the festival commissioned artist Martin Walker. Martin Walker, grew up on a steady diet of Hammer Horror classics and 80s juggernauts like The Lost Boys, Friday the 13th and Creepshow, all of which helped to firmly cement his love of the horror genre at a young age. His favourite comics are Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing, The Ultimates and Batman. He defines his style of painting as, ‘never quite as good as envisioned.’

Festival Submissions
Submissions are open now. If you’ve created a gut-crunching feature, a throat-ripping short or an eye-opening documentary that will set the horror world on fire – Fractured Visions want to see it. The festival will be taking place at the Tramshed Cinema, where everyone will be welcome to kick back, grab a beer and enjoy the films in luxury, thanks to the Tramshed’s beautiful seating.

Submission Deadlines
Regular Deadline: 31 May 2018
Late Deadline: 31 July 2018
Extended Deadline: 10 August 2018

The Rape of Recy Taylor - Poster and Trailer


Synopsis
Recy Taylor, a 24-year-old black mother and sharecropper, was gang raped by six white boys in 1944 Alabama. Common in Jim Crow South, few women spoke up in fear for their lives. Not Recy Taylor, who bravely identified her rapists. The NAACP sent its chief rape investigator Rosa Parks, who rallied support and triggered an unprecedented outcry for justice.

The film exposes a legacy of physical abuse of black women and reveals Rosa Parks’ intimate role in Recy Taylor’s story. An attempted rape against Parks was but one inspiration for her ongoing work to find justice for countless women like Taylor. The 1955 bus boycott was an end result, not a beginning.

More and more women are now speaking up after rape. Our film tells the story of black women who spoke up when danger was greatest; it was their noble efforts to take back their bodies that led to the Montgomery Bus Boycott and movements that followed. The 2017 Global March by Women is linked to their courage. From sexual aggression on ‘40s southern streets to today’s college campuses and to the threatened right to choose, it is control of women’s bodies that powered the movement in Recy Taylor’s day and fuels our outrage today.

My Friend Dahmer - New UK Poster and Trailer


Marc Meyers's MY FRIEND DAHMER is the haunting, sad, funny, true story of Jeffrey Dahmer in high school, based on Derf Backderf's critically acclaimed 2012 graphic novel of the same name and Meyers's own 2014 Black List script.


 Jeffrey Dahmer murdered seventeen men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured and incarcerated. This is the story before that story.


Jeff Dahmer (Ross Lynch, Disney Channel's 'Austin & Ally') is an awkward teenager who collects roadkill. It's the end of his junior year and he's practically invisible. His family life (Anne Heche as Joyce Dahmer) is coming undone. He fixates on a neighborhood jogger (Vincent Kartheiser, 'Mad Men') who routinely passes by his house. By the start of senior year, he acts out, throwing epileptic-like fits in the halls. His goofball antics win over a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club headed by Backderf (Alex Wolff, Nickelodeon's 'The Naked Brothers Band'). This camaraderie can't mask his growing depravity as approaching graduation Jeff spirals further out of control


UK & Ireland Release date: 1st June
Certificate TBC / Running time 107 Minutes

HOLLYWOOD, Calif. 10/05/18 — Paramount Pictures announced today that it will host a special screening of the enduringly popular cultural phenomenon GREASE at this year’s Cannes Film Festival to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary.  John Travolta and director Randal Kleiser will take part in the Cinéma de la Plage event on May 16th when fans will have the chance to relive the unforgettable moments, sensational soundtrack and classic love story at a spectacular outdoor screening of the newly restored film on the beach..

Youth and the Best Chinese Films to Own in 2018


With so many great Far Eastern films being released right now, it’s a great time to be a fan. Showing rich cultural diversity, while crossing genres and still challenging expectations, many of these films have generated impressive box office returns and loyal fandom with global audiences.

As part of this exciting output, China is well regarded within the creative filmmaking community and rightly so. Through many critical and commercial hits over the years, they have shown strength both locally and internationally, with a growing list of stars and filmmakers also crossing over to international fame.

To celebrate the much-awaited home entertainment release of Feng Xiaogang’s award-winning Youth, arriving in the UK before anywhere else, we look at some of Chinese cinema’s hottest home releases this year for collectors to seek out…

Wolf Warrior II
Breaking box office records and making global headlines, Wu Jing’s action epic matched the scope and scale of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters and pitted his heroic ‘Wolf Warrior’ soldier against a group of mercenaries led by villain, Frank Grillo (Captain America, The Purge: Anarchy). With action choreography from the world-famous 87Eleven Action Design (the team behind many MCU movies, plus John Wick and Atomic Blonde), the film stunned audiences by blending Chinese martial arts cinema (arguably unbeaten anywhere in the world) with Hollywood style production values. The film is out now on Blu-ray and DVD.

Monster Hunt
Combining live action and animation, this highly inventive fantasy-comedy-adventure was a huge commercial hit. Director and animator Raman Hui (Shrek the Third) said: “the message in the film is to understand and accept differences, to see the world through others' perspective and to foster more understanding between people.” While the film was released domestically in 2015, it had a long-awaited UK home release in early 2018 and a sequel is out too. The film is now on Blu-ray and DVD.

Special Mission
Following hot on the heels of titles like Wolf Warrior II, Operation Mekong and Operation Red Sea comes the all-new Special Mission. This old-school inspired action movie stars underrated talent Fan Siu Wong (Ip Man 1 & 2, The Story of Ricky) in a dangerous mission to rescue a royal princess. With the Chinese military trend so strong at this point, the appetite for the genre shows no sign of slowing down. The film is released in Chinese cinemas in April, and arrives elsewhere in the world later this year.

Detective Dee: The Four Heavenly Kings
Martial arts movie legend Tsui Hark (Once Upon a Time in China, The Swordmaster) returns for a third outing in his multi-award winning saga. Blending historical-adventure, action and mystery, the first film starred Hong Hong icon Andy Lau (Infernal Affairs, Shock Wave Tunnel), while the second chapter (a prequel) starred young Taiwanese-Canadian actor Mark Chao who returns for this highly anticipated sequel. Undoubtedly worth the wait, it’s in Chinese cinemas soon and will be released internationally later in the year.

Youth
Picking up multiple awards following its theatrical release, including Best Film at the recent Asian Film Awards, the new sweeping epic from visionary filmmaker Feng Xiaogang (The Banquet, Assembly) is an absolute must-see. In this story, after Xiaoping joins the military, delicate dreams are dashed by China undergoing a revolution and the events of the devastating Sino-Vietnamese War, forever changing the lives of all the young recruits. Released in the UK on home formats for the first time anywhere in the world, Youth is one of the most thought provoking and important films you’ll see this year.

Youth is out now on Dual Format (Blu-ray & DVD) and Digital Download from Cine Asia

Terminal (2018) - New Trailer


Terminal is an upcoming drama thriller film written and directed by Vaughn Stein. The film stars Margot Robbie, Simon Pegg, Dexter Fletcher, Max Irons, and Mike Myers.

The film is scheduled to be released on May 11, 2018, by RLJE Films.

Synopsis
In the dark heart of a sprawling, anonymous city, TERMINAL follows the twisting tales of two assassins carrying out a sinister mission, a teacher battling a fatal illness, an enigmatic janitor and a curious waitress leading a dangerous double life. Murderous consequences unravel in the dead of night as their lives all intertwine at the hands of a mysterious criminal mastermind hell-bent on revenge.


Technological Advances in Cinema


Entertainment has come a long way since the camera obscura and magic lantern were considered cutting-edge technology.

It’s almost unimaginable that such novel ideas were the norm, given that cinematic experiences today involve the biggest screens, ultimate picture quality and complete surround sound. Since the Golden Age of Cinema, massive strides have been made towards visual storytelling that have been so groundbreaking and innovative, they have transformed a rather sedate experience of sitting in the dark staring at a screen for 2 hours, into a fantastically immersive event people have fallen in love with.

In a post-Avatar world, people demand quality, nuance and, above all, an unforgettable experience. As a result, technology has improved at a staggering rate, stretching the possibilities of cinema to its limits. One of the main propagators at the top of the tree in the technological revolution, IMAX, is celebrating its 50th birthday this year and continues to push the envelope with the recent release of Avengers: Infinity War, the first Hollywood film shot entirely with IMAX cameras. To celebrate this milestone in the history of cinema, we’re listing the biggest technological advances in movie-going history. From old-school filmmaking, to the futuristic meta-experiences of today, the transformation is truly astonishing…

Where it all began 
Cinématographe: Every technological marvel must have a prototype to use as a base to evolve from, which, in hindsight, will inevitably look like a breezeblock on a stick. Though it’s not the first motion picture camera ever made, the Cinématographe took, printed and projected film. This was an advancement that catalysed the formation of the film industry at the latter part of the 1800s and built the foundations of what we call ’cinema’ today.

The lens of the Cinématographe was responsible for popularising film and led the charge of innovators and inventors who sped to perfectly capture the moving image. The Lumière brothers’ invention has cemented them into movie history and is responsible for perpetuating one of the most popular urban myths of a train gaining in size on the screen, causing an audience to stampede out of the auditorium believing it to be real. The Cinématographe proved the catalyst for technological advancement in film, and thus opens our list.

Making Noise
Talkies: The line “My Precious”, wouldn’t have had quite the same effect if the dialogue for The Lord of the Rings popped up on a card 10 seconds after a character spoke. Nor would it be as impactful if Gollum was accompanied by the sound of Honky-Tonk piano music. Silent cinema has its charms and is not to be scoffed at in the slightest; look at the success of The Artist. But sound and visuals are now an essential symbiotic relationship that a modern cinema audience may take for granted.

It’s been 91 years since the first ‘talkie’, The Jazz Singer, wowed audiences. Synchronized sound was the Achilles’ heel of motion pictures at the beginning of the 20th century and studios scrambled to release a story that had more to it than a soundtrack and effects; to create true immersion. The Jazz Singer contained live recorded singing by Al Jolson and was fundamentally ground-breaking. In the years following its release, Hollywood erupted with sound and has never looked back.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Colour: The addition of colour to black and white moving images was developed around 1902, not long after the development of cameras that had the capability to capture moving images. It wasn’t until the invention of Technicolor that colour in film really took off. Cinema purists would undoubtedly know that the first feature shot in Technicolor – The Gulf Between – is now lost, with only a few frames surviving. To the layman, The Wizard of Oz is likely the first title that springs to mind when discussing colour in film.

Though Technicolor was heralded as a triumph in the 1920s and 30s, it is perhaps not as big an advancement as sound being added to the screen. For instance, the dawn of colour in film didn’t trigger a frenzy of filmmakers running to abandon black and white. In fact, in more recent times, filming in black and white has become a cliché of modern art-house fare. That is not to downplay the magnitude it had, though. A Hollywood without colour would be starkly different and less successful than the one we know today. It is perhaps the most important visual advancement in cinematic history and one that brought fantasy one step closer to reality.

Seeing is Believing
IMAX: How is it possible to improve upon a form of entertainment that solely offers sound and pictures? How much more did film have to offer past the Golden Age of Cinema and the addition of colour to the moving image?

Quality.

Immersion isn’t one sided; it isn’t the sole responsibility of the audience to feel immersed in the story they are viewing on-screen. To craft a memorable experience, quality does a majority of the heavy lifting. Enter IMAX. Since 1968, it has been at the forefront of large-format immersive sound and images, and has been unparalleled in the mainstream screenings of quality films. It picked up where the Golden Age left off; experience. The expanded aspect ratios showing up to 40% more picture, breakneck speed of advancement and cutting-edge projection systems have made IMAX into a behemoth in which filmmakers can design for and revel in.

The impact of IMAX stretches beyond the screen, with Christopher Nolan using IMAX cameras as his weapon of choice for key scenes in The Dark Knight and Dunkirk. As CGI and visual effects get better, so does the technology supporting the medium that allows the unimaginable to appear real.

Avengers: Infinity War has continued the trend of using IMAX cameras to bolster an audience’s experience with expanded aspect ratios and crystal-clear projection. However, it is on the precipice of a new era in filmmaking, having been shot in its entirety on IMAX cameras. From source to finished product, Avengers: Infinity War will have all the hallmarks of a medium that has transformed cinemagoers’ experiences forever and will be the first film of its kind.
