Disney is pressing forward, and man is it weird to see. The company has rebranded Fox, which it purchased last year for $71 billion. 20th Century Fox will now be known as 20th Century Studios, while Fox Searchlight will change to Searchlight Pictures. The first 20th Century Studios branded release will be the new Call […]
Filmmaker James Cameron had the distinction of holding the top 2 slots for highest grossing films of all time until last week. His Avatar still holds the #1 position, but Marvel Studios Avengers: Endgame sank the #2 slot holder of Titanic just last week. Cameron took to Twitter to share this….rather strange congrats to the team over at Marvel […]
If you've been following the box office reports from the last two weeks, you more than likely were anticipating this bit of Avengers: Endgame cash money news. According to box office watchers on the wall, the 22nd Marvel Studios film just passed James Cameron's Titanic for the number 2 spot on the list of the top grossing […]
Welcome to the latest edition of BC Toy Spotting! We are in and out of stores pretty much every day, and we figure (ha!) why not show all of our fellow collectors what we are coming across on pegs and shelves. As collectors, we know that staying on top of what is in stores can […]

Welsh actor Bernard Fox passed away today form heart failure, he was 89 years old. Fox had a long a varied career and what you know him best for really depends on your age. In the 1960's he played Colonel Crittendon in eight episodes of Hogan's Heroes. He also made nineteen appearances as the womanizing Dr. Bombay […]
Perhaps Woo will trump James Cameron and actually nail the love story stuff too.
Brendon's whipping boy is given a soapbox to share his favourites. It's the least we could do.
Anybody else fancy The Third Man in 3D? Anyone?
There was a boatload of people gawking at this one a few hours ago: For the purposes of this test, Jack is being played by Jeremy Sisto, latterly of May and Law & Order. You'll barely notice he's there though – Winslet leaves absolutely no doubt as to why she won the part. Will Ultimate […]
Kate Winslet and Jeremy Sisto look at rude pictures and talk about souls. Sort of.
Titanic. Now with added depth... and also height.
A simple update to a previous story.
With doubts that 3D camera rigs could hold up to the desert shooting conditions, George Miller and his cinematographer, John Seale, have opted to film the new Mad Max movie, Fury Road, in 2D, then up-convert to 3D in post. Typically not a popular decision, Titanic and, to a large extent Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter […]

This Friday, Titanic returns to the big screen in a rather impressive new 3D version. Yesterday we had a masterclass from the film's writer-director James Cameron and producer Jon Landau on how to handle a 2D to 3D conversion correctly, and what the process can do for an audience. Today, let's take a little detour […]
Last week, I got to speak with Jon Landau and James Cameron about the new 3D version of Titanic, Avatar’s sequels and spin-offs and the whys and wherefores of 3D filmmaking.
This week I found myself at a screening of some footage from the forthcoming re-release of Titanic in 3D, along with a Q&A with producer Jon Landau. Titanic is just one of 'those' films – nearly everyone has seen it and nearly everyone has cried at it at least once, even if they won't admit […]
