  3. QUESTION:
    is there going to be another star trek movie?
    As you all know J.J Abrams directed the newish movie "Star Trek" I was just wondering if they are planning on making a sequal? I would be surprised if they didb'nt because the first one was such a success.

    • ANSWER:
      yeah may the 17th 2013 release date http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1408101/

  4. QUESTION:

    • ANSWER:

  5. QUESTION:
    How many Professor Layton games will there be?
    I love Professor Layton games and wondering how many of the games are there?
    1. How many games are there
    2. Have they been released
    3. What is your personal favourite?

    • ANSWER:
      Three games (the first trilogy) have been released in English

      > Professor Layton and the Curious Village (2008)
      > Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box (US) / Pandora's Box (UK) (2009)
      > Professor Layton and the Unwound Future (US) / Lost Future (UK) (2010)

      The fourth game (the first of a prequel trilogy) will be released later this year (2011)

      > Professor Layton and the Last Specter (US) / Spectre's Call (UK)

      The fifth game will be released in English next year (2012) for the 3DS

      > Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle (working title)

      The untitled sixth game (finishing the prequel trilogy) is currently in development for the 3DS but will probably not be released in English until 2013

      A crossover game Professor Layton vs Phoenix Wright is also in development for the 3DS

      Whether there'll be more games or another trilogy is anyone's guess

      There's also the movie Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva (released in the UK and scheduled for US release later this year) set between the fourth and fifth games

      A second movie, set between the fifth and sixth games, is being written and there may also be a third movie (likely depending on the commercial sucess of the first two)

      While the majority of players consider the third game (out of the first trilogy) to be their personal favourite, opinion remains divided as to which is the best, etc

  6. QUESTION:

      Eclipse may be released 2012 and Breaking Dawn 2013. Official released dates will be announced closer to the date.

  7. QUESTION:
    How much does it take when they release a movie/episode?
    I mean, like...for an episode how long do they rehearse? And film? And how long do they wait for the people to release it? Same for the movie, too, please! Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      It depends on the type of show or movie; and don't forget that there are different phases of making the TV show or film. Pre-production, where the script is written, the roles are cast, and the sets are built; production, when the actual footage is shot; and post-production, when the film or show is edited down to a final product.

      For a TV show, you have to keep in mind that at any given time, they're working on multiple episodes--e.g. on a given day a few are in the process of being written, one is being shot, and one or two are being edited.

      For a typical network sitcom like "How I Met Your Mother," the script takes a few weeks to write. The actors get their scripts on Monday (guest stars are cast a week or two beforehand); they do a "table read" where all the actors read their lines to see how the show flows, what jokes work, and what parts of the script may need tweaking. Rehearsals continue on Tuesday, and the show films on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (shows that have a studio audience, like "Two and a Half Men," film on Thursday or Friday, doing the exact same show twice so that in the editing process, they can choose the better version of each scene from the two takes).

      Then the show is edited, a process that usually takes a week or two. Then the show is ready for air--but of course when it actually gets aired depends on the network's schedule; sometimes it's as early as a few days after it's done editing, sometimes it's a few weeks.

      So basically, on a sitcom, they shoot a new episode every week, but pre-production and post-production take additional time. A show like HIMYM shoots from August to March, taking sizable breaks for holidays.

      Hourlong dramas usually take 7 to 10 working days to rehearse and shoot, but essentially the process is the same.

      With movies, again there's a wide range of projects, differing in scope, budget, and genre, and each take different lengths of time. A low-budget film that's mostly drama and has very little in the way of special effects can take just a couple of weeks to shoot and several weeks to edit, while a big-budget special effects movie like Avatar or The Dark Knight Rises could take years from shooting to release (the new Superman movie was done filming months ago, but won't be in theaters until Summer 2013).

      And when it comes to movies that aren't surefire blockbuster hits, even when they're complete the studio can take its time to release the movie at an appropriate time, taking into consideration the time of year (e.g., horror movies around Halloween time, holiday movies around Christmas, romantic movies around Valentine's day; big-budget blockbusters around the holidays and early summer) as well as possible competition (you don't necessarily want to release your movie on the same weekend that a big movie that everyone wants to see is coming out).

  8. QUESTION:
    when will the sequel to the host by stephenie meyer come out?
    when will the sequel to the host called 'The Seeker' by stephenie meyer come out? I know she may not do it but i looks like there 's a pretty good chance she will. If she is going to do it do you know when she will?

    • ANSWER:
      Her website is hopelessly out of date. You'll find the most up-to-date information on fansites such as Fanpop.com and in interviews with Stephenie Meyer. However, she is very, very careful in mentioning future projects. First, there was a leak about the Twilight book "Midnight Sun" which she had been working on. Second, she says if she mentions a possible book the media treats that as a commitment, so she doesn't like to speculate. Third, she said at the present, her time is not her own and she can't write in that atmosphere.

      All that being said, she did mention about a year or so ago that she had written the outline and first chapters of "The Host" sequel "The Soul", to be followed by the 3rd book of the trilogy "The Seeker". My thought is-- they are currently casting forThe Host movie which will start filming in February to be released in March, 2013 (Saoirse Ronan as Mel; Max Irons as Jared; Jake Abel as Ian; William Hurt as Jeb--see MovieInsider.com), and if there are going to be sequels using the same cast, she had better write them soon before the actors get too old for the parts!

  9. QUESTION:
    What is going to be the next animated Disney movie(Besides Princess and Frog)?
    The Princess and the Frog has been shown, what is going to be the next Animated Disney Movie?

    • ANSWER:
      2010 thanksgiving - Rapunzel
      That may be the last CG disney movie we'll see in awhile since they shelved "King of the Elves" recently. Instead, Disney plans to release a 2D animated movie every 2 years. Still in development are two hand-drawn animated movies.

      2011 - Winnie the Pooh
      2013 - The Snow Queen
      2015 - might be another Ron Clements and John Musker project (they were responsible for The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Hercules, Treasure Planet, and The Princess and the Frog).

  10. QUESTION:
    Is there a possibility of there being an iron man 4?
    Do they have enough comic info to make it go on for longer than just 4.
    In my opinion Supper Hero movies(and Harry Potter)should make more than 3, 4, maby even 5! Cuz they have so much info and people like them so much that they should just go on as much as it can.

    • ANSWER:
      The backstory is there to make dozens of movies about Iron Man. The problem isn't story material, it's Hollywood red tape, mixed with public reception.
      Eventually, Iron Man will grow old with audiences. He hit out of nowhere and became super popular, but the test of time is to see if he will be popular in 5 years (I think it's likely, but who knows. As it is, we're kinda in the "comic book" movie age. The trend will likely move on to something else pretty soon, because the market is starting to get over-saturated with comic book films)

      As it is, Marvel/Disney just announced that Iron Man 3 will be released on May 3rd, 2013. Time will tell if he's even popular enough at that point in time for the 3rd film to be a sucess like 1 & 2

      So in short, it's totally possible. As long as the corporate big wigs think that there's money to be made from Iron Man sequels, we will get more and more...

  12. QUESTION:
    What is an acceptable error rate with the death penalty?
    First, let us dismiss the absolutely absurd possibility of the police and prosecutors intentionally fabricating evidence or withholding exculpatory information. LOL, I mean, that would NEVER happen outside some crazy liberal, Hollywood movie. Are you kidding me?

    Even though in real life, that would never occur, from time to time, the police and prosecutors may actually make a mistake. As such, some may argue that on a long enough timeline, the execution of an innocent person isn’t a possibility, but an inevitability.

    As such, if you support the death penalty, what error rate would you find acceptable? Please, be as specific as you can. For instance, if for every 500 people we execute, 499 are guilty as sin and 1 is truly innocent and you’re OK with that, just say so.
    Wait a second now, you’ll get no argument from me that stowing away a person in a 6 x 10 concrete cell for life is equally as cruel as killing them outright, nor will you get any argument from me that the structure of our appellate system is a bit bizarre.

    That being said, there is a way to fix wrongfully imprisoning a person. There isn't a way to fix wrongfully executing one.
    Again, I agree, but while there are exceptional doctors and terrible ones, we still need doctors. While there are honest prosecutors and detectives, and a few corrupt ones, we still need those as well.

    But, the death penalty?

    We don’t *need* that. Big difference.

    • ANSWER:
      First, innocents are more at risk without the death penalty.

      Therefore, those opposed to the death penalty need tell us what their acceptable number of innocents dead is.

      Secondly, yes, innocent are at risk of execution.

      In the modern era, post Furman, 1972, possibly there have been 0.4% of those sent to death row who were actually innocent (1).

      All of those were released upon appeals (1).

      That is a remarkable record of accuracy.

      I don't think there is, per se, an acceptable number. All human endeavors have error.

      The goal is to keep that to a minimum, do better and improve.

  13. QUESTION:
    What time is the world suppose to end in 2012?
    I AM NOT A CONSPIRISIST
    I am only 13 and I don't know what to believe.
    I would just like to know if there is any exact time?

    If anything was to happen I would want to be with my family. That is why I am asking.

    • ANSWER:
      Please don't fall for this. There isn't a scientist on the planet who says anything is going to happen. The claimed 2012 doomsday is a hoax. Everything the scam artists are saying about 2012 is a pack of lies.

      The Mayan calendar doesn't end, it just recycles. The Maya didn't predict anything for 2012. They didn’t make prophecies and the end of one cycle and start of another was an event to celebrate.

      The people talking about all the signs of the end times happening now don’t realize that they have been happening throughout history.

      The History Channel doomsday schlockumentary consists of lies, half truths, and wild speculation.
      There were no ancient prophecies concerning 2012. Nostradamus never mentioned it. No one predicted it before the hoaxers started claiming it. This was after their 2003 doomsday failed to occur on schedule and they needed to keep selling their books and assorted doomsday garbage.

      None of it is said or supported by scientists.

      All the claimed astronomical events are either impossible or have no effect on us.

      The Solar maximum is now expected to occur in May 2013 and to be less energetic than average. It could interfere with electronics and communications.

      We aren't going to have any alignments aside from the apparent alignment that occurs every year at the December solstice.

      Geomagnetic reversal (polar reversal) takes hundreds to thousands of years to occur. We wouldn’t even feel it happening.

      Nibiru doesn't exist. It came from Z. Sitchen's misinterpretation of ancient Sumerian references to the planet Jupiter. Even Sitchen didn't claim it would come back in 2012 (he said 2085). Nancy Lieder, who hears aliens in her head and originally said her "Planet X" would be here in 2003) took over Sitchen's imaginary planet and changed her doomsday date to 2012 when her original prediction failed.

      The Institute for Human Continuity isn’t a real organization. It is a website advertising the movie 2012. It is run by Sony Pictures and if you look around on the site, you will find that the “Press Releases” are all about characters in the movie. It is all fictional.

      That covers most of the absurd claims. The world will still be here after 2012, along with most of us.

  14. QUESTION:
    What all do you think will happen in the third seasons of Ironman Armored adventure?
    So what all do you all want to happen in the third season? I hoping to introduce some other heroes like The avengers, spiderman or Fantastic Four. Though I heard that the third seasons will have wolverine in it. Maybe bring back some villains like Rhona or AIM.

    • ANSWER:
      "Story Editor Brandon Auman says work for a third season is being talked about in December 2011 and specifically introducing Wolverine to the series if the third season is confirmed.[17]

      On May 25th 2012, James Harvey reported from Nicktoons that the 2012 finale will be a specific season end, and not a series end. "The network is slated to air new episodes of Iron Man: Armored Adventures weekly through the summer, up to the final episodes of the second season."[18] Nicktoons has not confirmed when such third season will be released such as tie-in for the 2013 Iron Man 3 live action movie or 2014. No major plotline of such third season has been revealed.

      James Harvey later reported the series was canceled. First on June 20th 2012, stating the 2012 finale is a series finale. "Iron Man: Armored Adventures continues its run of all-new episodes, heading toward its series finale, on Nicktoons Network. ..."The final episodes of the Marvel Animation CG-series will feature the return of familiar villains and a large-scale invasion."[19] On July 6th 2012, Harvey again reported that the series will end in July 2012 with the last episodes of season 2. "The network lists the episodes below as the final episodes of the CG-animated series."[20]

      Formal confirmation of such cancellation has not been issued by Nicktoons on the series as of July 2012, suggesting the show may continue into a third season.

      Christopher Yost has said "nothing formal has been decided." suggesting that the two shows (Armored Adventures and the unnamed XD specific series [see below]) could run concurrently if Armored Adventures is continued into a third season."

  15. QUESTION:
    How would a Civil War in DC Comics shake down?
    Let's say Marvel's Civil War story happened in the DC Universe instead. How would it work? Who would be on what side and ultimately, who would win and how would things change going forward. Detail would be awesome.

    I would think that the Bat-team would lead the anti-registration side, while Superman would be the face of the pro team.

    • ANSWER:
      Clark what's up bro?

      That's kind of difficult to predict considering the fact that DC Comics has the
      "Justice League" consisting of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash
      The Green Lantern, Aquaman and The Martian Manhunter. Although the DC
      Comics "Justice League" has rotated over the years the only way I see that
      kind of "Civil War" happening is if the "Justice League" split up, took sides I
      could see half of DC Comics being with Batman. And the other aligning with
      Superman if that was the case I really couldn't pick a winner in this war that
      could be declared a DRAW seeing how both superheros are evenly matched.

      DC Comics plans to release a "Justice League" movie similar to how Marvel's
      releasing "The Avengers" on May 4, 2012 and don't forget that The Dark Knight
      Rises gets released on July 20, 2012 this year also. I can see both of the films
      earning some "big numbers" at the movie box offices around the world. And up
      next for Christopher Nolan he plans to release "Man of Steel" in 2013 this is a
      reboot of "Superman Returns" released in 2006 hopefully, the new Superman's
      movie does better numbers at the box office compared to the previous released.

  16. QUESTION:
    What Do You Think Is Going To Happen On 2012?
    A lot of people keep saying that the world is going to end on December 21 of 2012. But other people say that the Earth will shift. So I just want to know what you think about 2012.

    • ANSWER:
      It doesn't really matter what anyone thinks. All that matters is what can be proven. Guess what! The doomsayers haven't a single scrap of evidence or any indication that anything unusual is going to happen. The claimed 2012 doomsday is a hoax. Everything the scam artists are saying about 2012 is a pack of lies.

      The Mayan calendar doesn't end, it just recycles. The Maya didn't predict anything for 2012. They didn’t make prophecies and the end of one cycle and start of another was an event to celebrate.

  17. QUESTION:
    Is there really a new hobit movie coming out soon?
    If so is made and produced by the same director that made LOTR?
    Awesome!!! Im watching The Return of the King now. I have watched one of the three almost every week since they came out on DVD. These movies are epic. The heartfelt emotion that the characters portray and the bonds they share blended with the music and story make these movies real.

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, The Hobbit Part 1 will be released at Christmas 2012 and Part 2 at Christmas 2013; they are being directed and produced by Sir Peter Jackson (who did The Lord of the Rings), as well as with Fran Walsh and Phillipa Boyens who also did the script and production for The Lord of the Rings.

      As someone who is fond the music, you may also be pleased to hear that Howard Shore who composed and orchestrated The Lord of the Rings will also be returning to do the music for The Hobbit.

  18. QUESTION:
    Why in the world do people think the planet will end in 2012?
    The Mayan calendar is supposed to 'end' on December 21, 2012, and we are all supposed to go through a global catastrophe. Why do people think the human race will die because a calendar ends? I mean, my calendar ends and nothing happens except the need for a new one.

    • ANSWER:
      Because they are being constantly bombarded with it by the Hysteria Channel and by the 2012 hoaxers.

      The claimed 2012 doomsday is a hoax. Everything the scam artists are saying about 2012 is utterly false.

      The Mayan calendar doesn't end, it just recycles. The Maya didn't predict anything for 2012. They didn’t make prophecies and the end of one cycle and start of another was an event to celebrate.

  19. QUESTION:
    What hoax/story the internet conspirators will create after 2012 if it won't happen?
    Suppose everything goes alright, nothing happens on 21 dec 2012, then what will these websites, conspirators do after that?

    Will they start another prediction like 2020 or 2034 or 2036?

    • ANSWER:
      A while ago, I thought that they would go with the next "Ancient calendar date" of September 20, 2020 (it is a different Ancient calendar).

      However, I now see that the attention span of the gullible North American is so short that they could simply pick a date 6 months later and people would still go for it, hook line and sinker.

      The same charlatans were running the Planet-X hoax (end of the world of May 13, 2003) and they created the Big 2012 Hoax during the summer of 2003, giving it a lead time of nine years. It almost died. In fact, by the time Sony Pictures were about to release Roland's movie "2012" (which is a lot closer to the 2003 version), popular interest in the Big 2012 Hoax had almost disappeared, scaring them. That is when they came up with all the fake "documentaries", later revealed as disguised ads for the movie. Some of these are still shown AS IF they were real documentaries.

      Therefore, it is obvious that if you want to catch the American public, nine years is WAY too long. Now, I tend to go completely the other way: I expect MANY ends-of-the-world for 2013 alone.
      Not all from the same charlatans, of course.

      Isaac Newton did NOT predict the end of the world for 2060.

      What he did say is that the end of the world can NOT be before 2060. I could be centuries after.

      The Mayans did NOT predict the one for 2012. They were just as surprised as we were to learn that they did... and slightly more annoyed (given they were blamed). Even their Mesoamerican Long Count calendar does not end (they know that); the lie - that it ends - was invented by some dude from Minnesota who had also claimed that he was a reincarnated Mayan god.

  20. QUESTION:
    You think ultron will be the avengers 2 villain?
    Since antman and wasp are joining, it seems like a perfect plot.

    • ANSWER:
      The only confirmed villain for "Avengers 2" (2015) is Thanos, revealed at the end of the first movie as the mastermind behind Loki's plot--but it's not yet known to what extent he will appear in the sequel. There are a couple of reasons the producers may choose to downplay his role: 1) Thanos will also appear in Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" movie; 2) DC's Justice League movie will release the same year as "Avengers 2", featuring Darkseid, a villain similar to Thanos.

      This leaves the film with a villain vacancy. Joss Whedon has said he originally wanted a second, beefier villain in "Avengers" to give the team something more to strike at physically (Loki is something of a psychological opponent), but Marvel decided against it. He wouldn't say which villain he had in mind, but it's possible he will show up in the sequel.

      Here's the current release schedule for Marvel films (which may change):
      "Iron Man 3" - May 2013
      "Thor 2" - Nov. 2013
      "Captain America 2" - Apr. 2014
      "Guardians of the Galaxy" - Aug. 2014
      "Avengers 2" - May 2015
      "Ant-Man" - Nov. 2015

      Mandarin is the confirmed main villain of "Iron Man 3" (alongside Firepower, Coldblood and Aldrich Killian), and as has been the precedent, occurrences in the character films influence the flagship film, so it's possible Mandarin could return.

      The "Thor 2" villain, alongside Loki, is Malekith the Accursed, but the Enchantress is also rumored to have been cast. "Captain America 2" villains will be Winter Soldier, Arnim Zola and Crossbones. Actor Frank Grillo, who plays Crossbones, has said he'll appear in "Avengers 2". Radioactive Man is believed to cameo in "Iron Man 3", perhaps in a credits sequence.

      In the comic books, Enchantress, Arnim Zola, Crossbones and Radioactive Man are all affiliated with the Masters of Evil. My guess is that Marvel is setting up the Masters of Evil as the major antagonists in "Avengers 2". In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see original Masters of Evil leader Baron Zemo also make his debut in "Captain America 2".

      Although Ultron later led the Masters of Evil, he was created by Ant-Man, and the "Ant-Man" film won't be released until after "Avengers 2". I'm not sure how this could work chronologically. I expect Ultron will be set up as a villain in a later film.

      Dang, this became a long answer after that research. 😀

  21. QUESTION:
    When does the movie Pitch Perfect come on Netflix?
    I want to see pitch perfect soooo bad! Does anyone know when it comes to Netflix?

    • ANSWER:
      This is a bit complicated but generally for what are considered top earners or popular films it is 9 months to 1 year after the theatrical release date. "Perfect Pitch" was released in September of 2012 so the earliest would be next May. But these numbers are not written in stone it also depends on how well the DVD sells and how well the DVD is rented.

      To start with Universal which owns "Perfect Pitch" release the DVD.

      Then they require that Netflix wait one month before offering the DVD to be rented. This would be at the end of Jan 2013.

      Then they require that Netflix only offer renting for 4 to 6 months before they are allowed to offer it for streaming. It is that 4 to 6 months where things get tricky. If the industry shows a massive slow down in DVD sales and DVD rentals then Netflix will be allowed to offer it for streaming sooner but most likely that won't happen. So an educated guess is May of 2013 for streaming.

  22. QUESTION:
    Is the 2012 story a prophecy or myth?
    I've heard crazy things about 2012 and a lot of these things sound true and are just too hard to believe! I'd really want something to tell me everything about this and tell me,"is this a prophecy or myth"? I really need an answer because this is just freaking me out and giving me the chills 24/7!

    • ANSWER:
      It is neither a prophecy nor a myth. It is a hoax created by frauds and wackjobs to make money.

      The claimed 2012 doomsday is a hoax. Everything the scam artists are saying about 2012 is utterly false.

      The Mayan calendar doesn't end, it just recycles. The Maya didn't predict anything for 2012. They didn’t make prophecies and the end of one cycle and start of another was an event to celebrate.

      The people talking about all the signs of the end times happening now don’t realize that they have been happening throughout history.

      The History Channel doomsday schlockumentary consists of lies, half truths, and wild speculation.
      There were no ancient prophecies concerning 2012. Nostradamus never mentioned it. No one predicted it before the hoaxers started claiming it. This was after their 2003 doomsday failed to occur on schedule and they needed to keep selling their books and assorted doomsday garbage.

      None of it is said or supported by scientists.

      All the claimed astronomical events are either impossible or have no effect on us.

      The Solar maximum is now expected to occur in May 2013 and to be less energetic than average. It could interfere with electronics and communications.

      We aren't going to have any alignments aside from the apparent alignment that occurs every year at the December solstice.

      Geomagnetic reversal (polar reversal) takes hundreds to thousands of years to occur. We wouldn’t even feel it happening.

      Nibiru doesn't exist. It came from Z. Sitchen's misinterpretation of ancient Sumerian references to the planet Jupiter. Even Sitchen didn't claim it would come back in 2012 (he said 2085).

  24. QUESTION:
    What will happen to the Earth when all the planets line up in 2012?
    what will happen will the world end or
    Will it cause violent earthquakes and volcano eruptions?
    i cant not lie im freaking out

    • ANSWER:
      Well, since the planets won't and can't actually align in 2012 or any other time, it will cause nothing. The so called planetary alignments people talk about are not actual alignment in space. It is only how they appear in our view of the sky. Even so, there aren't any happening in 2012. If the planets could align, the gravitational effect on Earth would be less than that of the Moon.

  25. QUESTION:
    Will there ever be an Artemis Fowl movie?
    The books are really good and I've done some research and it says that the movie was written but I'm not sure.

    • ANSWER:
      AF author Eoin Colfer said in August that there is a script and a director (the writing/directing team is Jim Sheridan and his daughter, who made the movie "In America"). There's no cast, no studio financing, and no production start date, but the interview suggests that shooting may begin sometime next year, which would likely mean a 2012 release date.

      http://www.artemis-fowl.com/author_inter…

      Artemis Fowl Movie
      What will be in the movie?

      The movie’s plot will combine the storylines of both of the first two books, Artemis Fowl, and Artemis Fowl: The Arctic Incident. Colfer has been deeply involved in this, and has created a whole new ending, though he promises that the movie will remain quite faithful to the books.
      Why has it taken so long?

      Filming on the movie was due to begin a few years ago, but a dispute arose between Miramax, and Disney, when Bob and Harvey Weinstein left the company to start “The Weinstein Company.” This dispute delayed production for many years, but thankfully, has finally been resolved, with both Disney and The Weinstein Company now owning the rights. The movie is now progressing with the script finished, and casting rumored to begin sometime over the coming Summer.

      Some reports suggest that another reason for the production being delayed was that the value of the U.S. Dollar fell in comparison to the Euro.
      So what do we know for a fact about it?

      Well, we know a few things. Firstly, the rights to the first three books have been purchased. The first two have been used in this movie of course, but does this hint at a sequel being planned?

      Secondly, the movie, or at least part of it, is being shot in Ireland. This is likely as Colfer lives in Wexford, Ireland. This county has been used for parts of the filming of “Saving Private Ryan” and “Braveheart”, whilst Ireland as a whole was the filming location of the more recent, “Arthur.” Furthermore, the Irish Government places relatively low tax on such creative projects (In an effort to build the industry within the country).

      Unfortunately, “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” was also originally scheduled to be shot in Ireland, but moved on.
      Who is playing who?

      Casting is yet to begin, and so, no-one is set to play any of the parts yet. Originally, a boy (His name was never given) was chosen to play Artemis, but due to the huge delays, he grew too old for the part. Recently however, Aidan Mitchell has expressed an interest in the part, and Colfer has said that he would like to have a cameo role as a goblin.

      A few details on the non-acting staff have been released as well, and you can read about them on our casting page.
      When is it due out?

      Filming is yet to begin, so the movie is still a long way off. At a guess, you could hope for sometime in 2012-2013

  27. QUESTION:
    Is earth truly going to become a wasteland in the near future?
    This is on the topic of global warming and I ask this because the future looks hopeless for the earth as a result of the many events that have been occurring recently like the record levels of methane in the Arctic (http://arctic-news.blogspot.ie/2013/03/record-methane-in-arctic-early-march-2013.html), the albedo loss as a result of the loss of the Arctic Ice and the melting of the Greenland Ice Pack.

    The reason I ask about the earth becoming a wasteland is mainly due to the fact that recent weather extremes appear to have weakened food production on earth with severe weather like drought affecting US agriculture. I fear that the world will soon become something like the world in the novel known as The Road whereas cannibalism and starvation are the main regime as the Arctic looks to melt out completely due to extreme fracturing of the Arctic Ice (http://neven1.typepad.com/blog/2013/03/crack-is-bad-for-you-and-sea-ice.html) which could lead to the Arctic melting out this summer (perhaps either in late June, early July or at some point in August) pushing the earth to the limit with regards agriculture.

    That is the end of my standard fears, however there is something much worse that I fear whereas I feel and have been told that the above scenario with regards global starvation will take a number of years to occur, there is one scenario that will push that to a number of days following the melt of the Arctic Ice and that is this article here: http://killerinourmidst.com/ whereas a mass methane release from the Arctic Basin and the Permafrost will cause rapid warming and bring society to a standstill in a matter of days.

    So I must ask this question; does the near future hold the above scenario, do people think it holds the worst case scenario where humanity is left starving and if so what timescale would you suggest from it (I am referring to the second scenario with the mass methane release).

    • ANSWER:
      I would consider those extremely low-probability worst case scenarios.

      Instead, what I suspect will happen, and as far as I know what most scientists suspect will happen, is that we will have a slow increase in "normal" weather-related disasters (droughts, floods, and so on). This may spark wars, and lead to a lot of deaths both directly and indirectly, but I sincerely doubt it's going to become some kind of movie-fodder cannibalistic wasteland. Think more slow slide into worse and worse conditions, until either we blow each other up fairly dramatically or we just starve and fight our way down to a more sustainable population.

      All this, of course, is only if we don't *act* to stop AGW, which is in my opinion a far, far preferable outcome.

  28. QUESTION:
    On IMDB; can an untitled movie project do not display on IMDB?
    If a working movie or television project is in progress. Is it possible for the movie or television project cannot be posted on IMDB. And, how soon would the project be announced on IMDB with the cast and crew of the project?

    • ANSWER:
      A link may exist on the IMDB even though a title has not been decided yet.

      The link below is for an untitled film slated to come out in 2013 starring Ryan Reynolds & Bradley Cooper.

      Although when a film is in development it could always get cancelled before it really even gets started.

      Cast and crew announcements depend, sometimes IMDB will show someone as rumored or someone may drop out of a film. The studio also has a lot of control over announcements but then a contract can affect when information about a film is released.

    • ANSWER:
      Hi Jared,

      Unfortunately there is no rule for when a film shown at Sundance will end up in the theater. This is simply because of too many factors:

      1) Is someone interested in picking up the film for theatrical distribution?
      --MOST films shown at Sundance are NOT distributed theatrically.

      2) If there is interest, can the come to financial terms?
      --Lets say a company is interested in distributing the film theatrically...does not mean the filmmakers will want to sell the rights at the price the distributor is offering. Maybe they work it out...maybe the deal dies.

      3) If picked up for distribution, when does it fit into the distributors distribution schedule?
      --May get picked up, but they will need time to have prints made, and get theaters. It is also likely the distributor has many other films they are releasing. Can they fit it in 6 months from now? 9 months from now? Maybe the terms of the deal don't financially require them to release it and it waits even longer?

      A better question for MOST Sundance films is how long after to they get released on video (DVD, streaming, etc). But once again you can apply the same questions, because distributors have video release schedules and so on.

      I have seen Sundance films get released 6 months later and some not for years.

      Sorry, but that is the reality and I know not the concrete answer you were looking for.

      Best thing to do if you are targeting a specific film is just keep checking for its release whether theatrical or video. As of today, everything I am seeing for "Very Good Girls" is reflecting that the release date is TBD.

      Hope this helps.

      The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune
      Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
      And by opposing end them. To die, to sleep--
      No more--and by a sleep to say we end
      The heartache and the thousand natural shocks
      That flesh is heir to. 'Tis a consummation
      Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep--
      To sleep--perchance to dream: ay, there's the rub,
      For in that sleep of death what dreams may come
      When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
      Must give us pause. There's the respect
      That makes calamity of so long life.
      For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,

      To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
      But that the dread of something after death,
      The undiscovered country from whose bourn
      No traveller returns, puzzles the will
      And makes us rather bear those ills we have
      Than fly to others that we know not of?
      Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
      And thus the native hue of resolution
      Is sicklied o'er with the pale cast of thought,
      And enterprises of great pitch and moment
      With this regard their currents turn awry
      And lose the name of action.--Soft you now,

      He waited, (they were strangers)
      Till they were out of hearing
      To bid them both be happy.
      'Be happy, happy, happy,
      And seize the day of pleasure.'
      The age-long theme is Age's.

      And yet not know they have it.
      But bid life seize the present?
      It lives less in the present
      Than in the future always,
      And less in both together
      Than in the past. The present
      Is too much for the senses,
      Too crowding, too confusing-
      Too present to imagine.

    I am a big fan of Caitlin Stasey, she has recently starred in such movies such as "All Cheerleaders Die", "Lust For Love" and a ABC comedy "Please Like Me."

    I am curious if anyone is aware or if anyone has any links on any news about these features, and more importantly, when they will reach UK screens?

    Also will there be a sequel to "Tomorrow When The War Began"?

    • ANSWER:
      Hi. I'm a fan of Caitlin's from the UK, too. In answer to your questions:

      'Please Like Me' is due to air starting February on ABC2 in Australia. I can't imagine it will be shown on terrestrial channels in the UK because Josh Thomas, the star, is unknown here. However, I'm hoping I'll be able to download it from somewhere online. If I find a link, I'll let you know. If it's the case that the show is later released on DVD, I will of course buy it.

      'Lust for Love' is in the latter stages of post production. I don't know if it will see general release in the US or UK yet, because it's a indie film, though even a limited release would be great. I'm sure it will eventually be available on DVD though, because I was a backer of the Kickstarter project which funded the movie, and a 2-disc DVD is one of my rewards. I'm hoping to receive the DVD before the film's theatrical release, not after.

      The thriller 'Evidence' was shot in around August/September of 2011, if I remember rightly, and has had more than a year in post-production, so I think that's due out soon. 'Chu and Blossom', a comedy, was shot in Florida in August/September this year, so will probably be in post-production for a while yet. 'All I Need' is an indie horror/thriller and it was shot in LA around late September/October, this year. I don't know when this is due out, though I'm sure it's sometime during 2013. A second horror/thriller, 'All Cheerleaders Die', has (I think) wrapped shooting just before Christmas, though I may be wrong on that. I don't know if any of these four movies will be released theatrically in the UK, though I suspect 'All Cheerleaders Die' might be, as it sounds like a relatively bigger budget production. Either way, all four are bound to later be released on DVD.

      'I, Frankenstein' was shot in Melbourne in around March/April this year, though it won't be out until September 2013 in the US, after its release was delayed by seven months. This is a big-budget affair, so it will almost certainly be released in the UK, though I don't know if it will debut here at the same time as in the US. I'm hoping we might even get to see it before the Yanks do. Caitlin plays a gargoyle in the movie :)

      As far as a sequel to TWTWB goes, the last I heard was that a screenplay based on the second and third books in the series had been completed. Unfortunately, things don't look promising as regards getting the original cast back together. Lincoln Lewis recently Tweeted that he had met with director Stuart Beattie, and that the possibility of a sequel (with the same director and cast, at least) seems remote :/

      Hope that helps! If you're looking for more up-to-date news on Caitlin's projects, I can thoroughly recommend her Facebook page. It's not run by Caitlin herself but I know the young lady who does run it, and she is always the first to dig up new info, so if you 'like' the page, I'm sure you'll be kept abreast of any further developments :)

  32. QUESTION:
    Why do they think the world is going to end in 2012?
    How would the planets lining up with the earth make the world end? I don't understand why people are saying the world is going to end when it has made it through a million predictions before that the world is supposed to end.

    • ANSWER:
      The only "they" who think the world is going to end in 2012 are people who, as famous Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson so tactfully put it, "didn't take enough science in school."

      The planets won't and can't actually align in space. The "alignments" that people talk about are only as they appear in our view of the sky. That is a far cry from actually aligning in space. We aren't even going to have an apparent alignment in 2012, though. In addition, if the planets actually could align, their combined gravitational effect on Earth would be less than that of our Moon.

      The claimed 2012 doomsday is a hoax. Everything the scam artists are saying about 2012 is utterly false.

      The Mayan calendar doesn't end, it just recycles. The Maya didn't predict anything for 2012. They didn’t make prophecies and the end of one cycle and start of another was an event to celebrate.

      The people talking about all the signs of the end times happening now don’t realize that they have been happening throughout history.

      The History Channel doomsday schlockumentary is all lies, half truths, and wild speculation.
      There were no ancient prophecies concerning 2012. Nostradamus never mentioned it. No one predicted it before the hoaxers started claiming it. This was after their 2003 doomsday failed to occur on schedule and they needed to keep selling their books and assorted doomsday garbage.

      None of it is said or supported by scientists.

      All the claimed astronomical events are either impossible or have no effect on us.

      The Solar maximum is now expected to occur in May 2013 and to be less energetic than average. It could interfere with electronics and communications.

      We aren't going to have any alignments aside from the apparent alignment that occurs every year at the December solstice.

      Geomagnetic reversal (polar reversal) takes hundreds to thousands of years to occur. We wouldn’t even feel it happening.

      Nibiru doesn't exist. It came from Z. Sitchen's misinterpretation of ancient Sumerian references to the planet Jupiter. Even Sitchen didn't claim it would come back in 2012 (he said 2085). Nancy Lieder, who hears aliens in her head and originally said her "Planet X" would be here in 2003) took over Sitchen's imaginary planet and changed her doomsday date to 2012 when her original prediction failed.

      The Institute for Human Continuity isn’t a real organization. It is a website advertising the movie 2012. It is run by Sony Pictures and if you look around on the site, you will find that the “Press Releases” are all about characters in the movie. It is all fictional.

      That covers most of the absurd claims. The world will still be here after 2012, along with most of us. Go to the site below and read about the hoax. Unlike the doomsday sites, they aren't selling anything.

  34. QUESTION:
    What is the deal with 2012. Who predicted the end of the world and who didn't?
    If you don't have a source don't post an answer. I'm so sick of how many people have no idea what there talking about. They hear one thing from a friend and then think they know everything about it. I know that the mayan calender ends in 2012, but did anyone else say that.

  35. QUESTION:
    Do you think they will put out the Star Wars saga again in theaters, because of 3D?
    Now with all these 3D movies, I'm thinking Mr. Lucas has got to be thinking about it.

    • ANSWER:
      Already thought of and is coming to a theater near you starting in 2012 as "rnrstar137" says. However, "michelleglawson" is wrong about the release order. It will NOT be ep IV that comes out in 2012 ... it will be episode I. Another will be released each year ... IE: ep II in 2013 etc. Episode VI will be the last one to come out in 2017 ... which will be the 40 year anniversary of the release of ep IV in 1977. Gotta think that Lucas is gonna have some kind of "wild party" with that release.

    is there any chance of a new Childs play movie?
    I love the Childs play movies. Chucky tiff and shitface/glen/glenda are crazy. It seems as though in the end of seed of chucky there is a major setup for a new movie but i have heard nothing
    Well if they are doing a remake i hope it is as good as the original. But i was really hoping for a continuation of the series

  37. QUESTION:
    Which film are you anticipating more: The Wolf of Wall Street or The Grand Budapest Hotel?
    Martin Scorsese's next or Wes Anderson's next (which Johnny Depp was just confirmed for, as is Owen Wilson, and if they're in, we can assume the rest will be).

    Two surprisingly awesome ensemble casts and the two greatest filmmakers of all-time (in my opinion, of course). I couldn't be more excited. 

    BQ: What are the odds that The Grand Budapest Hotel is released next year?

    BQ2: Top five Owen Wilson films (without Wes Anderson's involvement)?

    • ANSWER:
      The Wolf of Wall Street. As much as I love Wes Anderson, my answer will always be The Wolf of Wall Street. This is Scorsese's first crime-drama since The Departed, and one could say that that was a pretty good movie. I've heard that the script is a mixture between Casino and Raging Bull, and Jonah Hill's character is a Joe Pesci-esque role. How awesome does that sound?

      that being said, once the official plot is announced for The Grand Budapest Hotel (interesting name BTW), and a filming date is announced, it is definitely my #2 most anticipated!

      BQ- let's see... Moonrise Kingdom filmed in May-ish of 2011 and was released at Cannes May-ish 2012. If we get some good news about the cast being confirmed, a producer being announced, and if it miraculously filmed later this year, it'll come out in 2013. But we have never seen a Wes Anderson film in back to back years... I really hope so though

      BQ2-
      Midnight in Paris
      Meet the Parents
      Zoolander
      Wedding Crashers
      Hall Pass

    I hope this won't be the last we here of Daniel Radcliffe...

    • ANSWER:
      It's emotional for me, yes. Harry Potter has built my life. I remember when I was younger and waited for new books and movies to come out and was ecstatic about it. ♥

  42. QUESTION:
    Why are soundtracks bundled with bluerays so much now?
    Why are soundtracks bundled with bluerays so much now?
    Recently i've been noticing an increase in japanese anime soundtracks being treated as "extras" in Blueray bundles. This usually leads to some pretty high prices ranging from 86 to as high as 380 dollars. As a person who loves buying music this is very discouraging considering when all i want most of the time is the soundtrack and NOT the mere 4 episodes rendered in blueray quality

    I'm not quite up to speed on how the Japanese music market is doing but i'd be willing to assume that maybe it isn't profitable to release CD's on their own anymore? That's my guess but i can't be sure on that. Also if i may ask another question could someone tell me if the artist receives more support if people buy the animation CD or buy the bundled blueray packs with the CD included as an "extra"? If so how much usually? Sources would be appreciated!

    Thank you for your time
    Here are some examples

    http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=ANZX-3855

    I've looked every place i could but the only way to get the Original soundtracks for these shows is to buy the blueray bundles which can leave your wallet VERY empty.

    • ANSWER:
      You're right. Recently there has been an increase of anime OSTs being bundled together with Blu-ray and limited edition DVD releases.

      To be honest, I think they do it to increase the sales of the DVD & Blu-rays.

      DVD and Blu-ray sales are the best indicators of how well an anime show does (profit-wise). Especially those late night anime that don't rely too much on merchandise.

      It's not that there aren't any anime soundtracks that are sold by itself, there are. But it seems doing it this way works well to increase sales + if the releases sell well, the composer would still get a share of the profit (anime movie OSTs are almost always released standalone... almost).

      Sword Art Online, for example, have been consistently selling well for both Blu-rays and DVDs.
      http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2013-02-05/japan-animation-blu-ray-disc-ranking-january-28-february-3

      I think it's mostly to do with the people who produces the anime. If for marketing purposes, they decide that it would be much more profitable to get the OST bundled, then they'll do so. Different animation studio might choose to not bundle it.

      It's sad, because I would really love to own some of those OST albums too.

    • ANSWER:
      2012 – A Scientific Reality Check

      The Galileo spacecraft's view of the Moon and Earth On December 16, 1992, 8 days after its encounter with Earth, the Galileo spacecraft looked back from a distance of about 6.2 million kilometers (3.9 million miles) to capture this remarkable view of the Moon in orbit about Earth. Image credit: NASA/JPL There apparently is a great deal of interest in celestial bodies, and their locations and trajectories at the end of the calendar year 2012. Now, I for one love a good book or movie as much as the next guy. But the stuff flying around through cyberspace, TV and the movies is not based on science. There is even a fake NASA news release out there… So here is the scientific reality on the celestial happenings in the year 2012.

      Nibiru, a purported large object headed toward Earth, simply put - does not exist. There is no credible evidence - telescopic or otherwise - for this object's existence. There is also no evidence of any kind for its gravitational affects upon bodies in our solar system.

      I do however like the name Nibiru. If I ever get a pet goldflish (and I just may do that sometime in early 2013), Nibiru will be at the top of my list.

      The Mayan calendar does not end in December 2012. Just as the calendar you have on your kitchen wall does not cease to exist after December 31, the Mayan calendar does not cease to exist on December 21, 2012. This date is the end of the Mayan long-count period, but then – just as your calendar begins again on January 1 - another long-count period begins for the Mayan calendar.

      There are no credible predictions for worrisome astronomical events in 2012. The activity of the sun is cyclical with a period of roughly 11 years and the time of the next solar maximum is predicted to occur in the period 2010 – 2012. However, the Earth routinely experiences these periods of increased solar activity – for eons - without worrisome effects. The Earth’s magnetic field, which deflects charged particles from the sun, does reverse polarity on time scales of about 400,000 years but there is no evidence that a reversal, which takes thousands of years to occur, will begin in 2012. Even if this several thousand year-long magnetic field reversal were to begin, that would not affect the Earth’s rotation nor would it affect the direction of the Earth’s rotation axis… only Superman can do that.

      The only important gravitational tugs experienced by the Earth are due to the moon and sun. There are no planetary alignments in the next few decades, Earth will not cross the galactic plane in 2012, and even if these alignments were to occur, their effects on the Earth would be negligible. Each December the Earth and Sun align with the approximate center of the Milky Way Galaxy but that is an annual event of no consequence.

      The predictions of doomsday or dramatic changes on December 21, 2012 are all false. Incorrect doomsday predictions have taken place several times in each of the past several centuries. Readers should bear in mind what Carl Sagan noted several years ago; "extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence."

      For any claims of disaster or dramatic changes in 2012, the burden of proof is on the people making these claims. Where is the science? Where is the evidence? There is none, and all the passionate, persistent and profitable assertions, whether they are made in books, movies, documentaries or over the Internet, cannot change that simple fact. There is no credible evidence for any of the assertions made in support of unusual events taking place in December 2012.

  44. QUESTION:
    A question about movie casting auditions?
    Lets say for example that a certain movie is going to be released in 2013, how soon do they begin the casting auditions?

    • ANSWER:
      There's a lot of variables in there to give you any kind of accurate time frame for casting. Some depends on the shoot schedule and the post production schedule. Those two variables in terms of length of time for each could depend on the genre of film. For instance if it is a heavy special effects film it may very well take anywhere from 2-3 months to 8 months to shoot and an entire year or more to finish post production. Such was the case for Battleship. It shot in the summer/fall of 2010. It has been in post production all of this year including a few reshoots and additional shots, and won't be released until May 2012. Casting for that film was done in Spring/early summer of 2010.

      A small indie film with very few visual effects will not need nearly as much time to shoot or post. However if a film is already giving a date for release in 2013, chances are its a blockbuster film and will be heavy on the effects so the producers are probably already making deals at the top agencies for their star cast and the day player, smaller cast members will be added a few months or weeks before they start shooting.

      The Institute for Human Continuity isn’t a real organization. It is a website advertising the movie 2012. It is run by Sony Pictures and if you look around on the site, you will find that the “Press Releases” are all about characters in the movie. It is all fictional.

      That covers most of the absurd claims. The world will still be here after 2012, along with most of us.

  49. QUESTION:
    What do u guys think about 2012 the end of the world?
    would it be really happen?

    • ANSWER:
      The only people who think the world is going to end in 2012 are those who, as famous Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson so tactfully put it, "didn't take enough science in school."

      The planets won't and can't actually align in space. The "alignments" that people talk about are only as they appear in our view of the sky. That is a far cry from actually aligning in space. We aren't even going to have an apparent alignment in 2012, though. In addition, if the planets actually could align, their combined gravitational effect on Earth would be less than that of our Moon.

      The claimed 2012 doomsday is a hoax. Everything the scam artists are saying about 2012 is utterly false.

      The Mayan calendar doesn't end, it just recycles. The Maya didn't predict anything for 2012. They didn’t make prophecies and the end of one cycle and start of another was an event to celebrate.

      The people talking about all the signs of the end times happening now don’t realize that they have been happening throughout history.

      The History Channel doomsday schlockumentary is all lies, half truths, and wild speculation.
      There were no ancient prophecies concerning 2012. Nostradamus never mentioned it. No one predicted it before the hoaxers started claiming it. This was after their 2003 doomsday failed to occur on schedule and they needed to keep selling their books and assorted doomsday garbage.

      None of it is said or supported by scientists.

      All the claimed astronomical events are either impossible or have no effect on us.

      The Solar maximum is now expected to occur in May 2013 and to be less energetic than average. It could interfere with electronics and communications.

      We aren't going to have any alignments aside from the apparent alignment that occurs every year at the December solstice.

      Geomagnetic reversal (polar reversal) takes hundreds to thousands of years to occur. We wouldn’t even feel it happening.

      Geomagnetic reversal (polar reversal) takes hundreds to thousands of years to occur. We wouldn’t even feel it happening.

      Swine flu has a mortality rate of less than 10%, as compared to 70% for the avian flu that was going around a couple of years ago. We had a round of swine flu in the late sixties and guess what? The world didn’t end.
