Welcome to the first of, what I hope to be, a daily segment known as Lost in News. I will do my best to bring you the latest and hottest movie news and headlines from around the web so you don’t have to surf around finding them. I will try to to post this daily but during busy periods or slow news weeks it might be a bit more sporadic. Have a hot tip or some news I missed? Drop me a line john at (note change the at to @) lostinreviews.com
Several posters (Iron Man 2, Avatar, & Tron) that mostly movie geeks will get excited about were rounded up by the fine fellows at Film Junk.
Speaking of Film junk, they have been running down their top 20 picks of the decade. So far I tend to agree with all of their picks.
The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, out 6/30/10, will also be released as a lame blown up 35mm print as an IMAX ‘Experience’. As a reminder, this is nothing more than a marketing gimmick. The picture quality is WORSE when they do this. The only addition is the IMAX soundtrack and the extra 2-4 dollars you spend on a ticket for it. Pretty sure that won’t stop the Twi-hard’s from going to see it any way.
In some welcome news: Universal Pictures announced via Twitter yesterday that The Wolfman, out Febuary 12, has received an R rating from the MPAA for bloody horror, violence and gore. My interest in this film has bumped up yet again based on some other last minute changes that I hear the film has undergone.
Rounding out today’s news round up is the trailer for the Nic Cage starring Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean Trilogy) produced live action/modern The Scorers Aperntice that showed up on youtube today.
