New Films 2013

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    How can actors make so many films per year?
    Owen Wilson, for example, is making 6 films in 2013. I'm just surprised at how he can learn 6 different scripts and make that many films in one year. It's like learning and filming a film in 2 months. It's seems like they just want to do as many films as they can to get paid instead of really putting their heart and soul into the movie...
    Maybe I'm being stupid, I don't know. Maybe actors are super humans and can learn and perfect scripts quickly.
    Anyone got any other thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      Easy: i have near photographic memory for stuff I read/hear. Repetition for you would be key.

      Also I doubt he films 6 in one year but could be. Some small time actors star in B movies and the filming takes only 1 month.

      But if you mean 6 films coming out the same year, then who knows when it filmed??? There is post production and takes up to 2 years to put a movie together when it's done in the can.

  3. QUESTION:
    What is the bridge Javert jumps from in the Les Misérables film 2013?
    I recently saw the film for Les Misérables in the cinema, and I was wondering what bridge in Paris it was that Javert jumps from? I'm going to Paris in the summer and I'd love to see it. In the film there are concrete bids over one side. I know that doesn't really help but please tell me if you know!

    • ANSWER:
      I'm not really sure, but I pulled out my copy of Les Miserables and read the part where Javert commits suicide. It says he was at the Pont au Change, which I did look up an is an actual bridge in Paris. Perhaps this is the bridge the studio used or recreated.

  4. QUESTION:
    What's the difference between a director and a producer and a little poll?
    Ok why does the director and producer do. And who creates the story? Is it like the producers ask a director to write a script or the directors make a script and the directors hire them????
    And also a little poll for fun 😀
    What are your top 5 anticipated films of 2013?
    Mine are
    Man of steel can't wait for the trailer before the hobbit!!!!!!
    Star Trek into darkness also trailer befor the hobbit!
    Despicable me 2
    Monsters university 😀
    And world war z
    I think 2013 will be an epic year for movies!!!

    • ANSWER:
      Writers create a story and the script and submit it to the major studios.

      If a story and script are chosen to be made, the director is the creative person who is in charge of everything you eventually see on screen, whether it be location, actors, lighting, effects etc.

      Producers are the managing director of the film, who manage all of the resources involved in creating and marketing it, including finance, HR, buying, and admin. This leaves the creative or artistic team free to concentrate on what they do best, whilst the management team can maintain a very high professional standard within the relevant business disciplines.

      Hobbit, Star Trek and Star Wars film all due in the future - very exciting.

  16. QUESTION:
    Should i read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald before watching the 2013 movie?
    I wanted to buy the book,but i'm afraid that reading it might spoil any suspense in te movie..so must i read it before watching the 2013 movie of it?

    • ANSWER:
      Oftentimes, I find that the the book is much much better than the film or tv series of the same name. I've read The Great Gatsby, and the story line could be complicated for some. If you want to be able to follow the movie well enough, you should read the book. OR you could watch the movie, then read the book.

      Either way, reading the book tends to spoil the movie for me. Personally, I think that some of the best book-into-movies are the Harry Potter movies, and Life of Pi. These followed the original story line closely so I didn't scream hell fire and bloody murder hahaha. But then, it's really up to you.

  17. QUESTION:
    What movies will you be watching in 2013?

      Unforgiven- Japanese
      Gangster Squad
      47 Ronin
      The Hobbit part 2
      World War Z
      The Great Gatsby

  18. QUESTION:
    What do you think of the new SuperMan Movie in 2013?
    Just like with SpiderMan, SuperMan is getting a new set of films called. SuperMan: MAN OF STEEL, what do you think about the idea. Do you think SuperMan is overpowered, who is gonna play Lex Luthor, and how will kryptonite get involved?

    • ANSWER:
      well there is no Lex Luthor. There's General Zod who is kryptonian so he wouldn't need kryptonite to harm superman as his attacks can hurt superman. I think that it looks good, however it shows Clark Kent as a crab fisherman, which makes no sense as he's always been a journalist at the daily planet. If they get rid of that I think it would lose a lot of classic superman appeal.

  20. QUESTION:
    How often does netflix and lovefilm update their films?
    Lets say a film came out on the 20th of January 2013, when would it be able to be streamed on both:
    A)Netflix
    B)LoveFilm
    Also which one is better in your opinion and give reasons if you want. Ya know, you don't have to but it would be much appreciated!
    Thanks :)

    • ANSWER:
      This cannot be answered as it is different case by case.

      Some film studios refuse to offer their films for streaming at all.
      Some films refuse to offer their films to be streamed on Netflix some refuse to allow LoveFilm to stream their movies. Some studios don't allow either platforms to stream their content and only allow other platforms such as iTunes, Amazon Instant Watch or their own content provider such as HBO.

      So to find out when a new film will make its way to Netflix or Lovefilm one would have to know what studio owns the film and if they have a deal with either provider.

      But for instance take a small film like "Jeff Who Lives at Home" it was released 16 March 2012 and showed up for streaming in Jan. 2013 so that is roughly 10 months. "One For the Money" was released Jan 2012 and showed up Jan. 2013 so that is roughly 12 months. A really small film "Sleepwalk With Me" was released August 2012 and again Jan. 2013 it was being streamed so roughly 8 months.

      So you might say a year for bigger studio films and 8 months to 10 for smaller indie films.

      As to which is better? I cannot say with any true degree of accuracy (due to the fact that Lovefilm is not available in the US) but here is an article comparing the 2. It is from November of 2012 so it should be up to date.

  21. QUESTION:
    What is the difference between "Filming" and "production"?
    One of my favorite show's season 3 is going to start "production" early 2013.

    • ANSWER:
      I do believe "filming" is the actual taping of the show & production is the whole thing from writing to filming to editing & probably includes some 'business wining & dining"

  22. QUESTION:
    List Of Pixar Films That Are In Production And Are Going to Make?
    Please List all of the films that pixar are making just now and a list of movies that pixar is going to make?

    • ANSWER:
      What you need to do is go to http://www.imdb.com and look and see for yourself. Pixar has films scheduled up to 2012 or 2013 listed there, so to list all the films that they will be releasing and when they will be doing it is a moot point. Check out the Internet Movie Database, where they specialize in stuff like that. They also keep track of films by other studios. It wouldn't hurt to become a member of IMDBpro while you're at it so you can answer these questions instead of asking them!

  23. QUESTION:
    How can I meet the Ghost Adventure crew while on my honeymoon in Vegas?
    We are going to honeymoon in Las Vegas in early 2014 a few months after our marriage in June 2013. The one thing that would make my honeymoon besides my new hubby would be to meet the Ghost Adventure crew and just get a signed Vegas t-shirt. I am not a fanatic, but really enjoy the show. How can I arrange this?

    • ANSWER:
      1. Find out where they will be with your here, who knows if that show will still be on the air or even in Las Vegas when you get here, they tour the whole country filming, chances of them being here in that month is pretty slim in my expectations - but I've been wrong before. Given that they are there to work and film what ever they are trying to catch, they probably won't want to be disturbed.

      2. Contact the production company and find out if they have an open set so you can visit them (you also contact the production company to find out where they are).

      2a. They should have a website where you can contact them and find this information out. (or the station that airs them in your area). You can also buy them from their site generally or have a link to the site that does sell them.

      3 Good luck.

  24. QUESTION:
    What is the best place to learn theatre performance in MONTREAL?
    I've studied acting for film at Carter Thor, and am looking to diversify my range by going to either a cegep or university or private schooling in Montreal. The Carter Thor class is very intensive which makes its students grow a lot, so I am searching for something as equaly demanding. Any suggestions/stories/experiences?

    • ANSWER:
      I strongly recommend you the "National Theatre School". It is highly reputed, diversified and complete, but very selective on entries...! It is situated in the center of the artistic neighbourhood of Montreal: Le Plateau. It is the top of the top theatre/comedy/drama school in Montreal.
      The tuition fees are relatively high:
      For Canadian citizens and permanent residents, tuition fees for the 2013-2014 school year are ,600. For non-Canadian citizens, the tuition fees for the 2013-2014 school year are ,200.
      The address is :
      National Theatre School of Canada
      5030 St. Denis Street

  25. QUESTION:
    How do you find out where a movie is being filmed?
    Hello all.

    I need to know how you find out where the exact location of a movie will be filmed.
    There is one being filmed at the start of 2013 in my hometown and I have already emailed the production company and they have told me they wont give out any information.
    My friend and I are planning to go on a trip to the location when it takes place and try and meet the actors involved as its one of the biggest things to happen in our state for a while.
    Who can I contact or where can I look for information?
    Any advice/ideas help would be VERY much appreciated! Thanksyous.

  26. QUESTION:
    Is the new Oz movie supposed to be related to the original Judy Garland Oz movie?
    Also, I understand there are several Oz films. I'm confused with whether or not they are supposed to be related, or are just different versions.

    • ANSWER:
      The "Oz" movies are based on the characters/story of Frank L Baum. The only two that are related are The Wizard of Oz (1939) and Return to Oz (1985), all the others are retellings of the same stories. The new movie Oz: The Great and Powerful (2013) is based on the world of Oz but isn't specifically connected to the series other than characters because it happens before the first book "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" and isn't even based on any books like the previous films. Think of it as similar to the book "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West" a telling of unestablished history from another author's point of view.

  27. QUESTION:
    What are some good films coming out in the cinema ?

  28. QUESTION:
    What are the chances that a movie, where casting has started will be made?
    Okkay so if the lead roles in a movie have been cast does this confirm that they are definidly planning on making a film? Like excluding any unforseen problems will the movie be made? Can you give me guess of what precent of the movies that reach this point are many are actually made? And how much longer till it is made if the 1st 2 lead roles were cast? Thank you so much!

    • ANSWER:
      Probably about 99% chance that it will get released if they have actually started casting all the roles. But if you are looking at rumors of the potential lead actors, those are just rumors and the chances aren't as high.

      As for how long, if you can't find a release date for the movie then it won't be coming out until at LEAST late 2013.

  29. QUESTION:
    Which one of these places should I travel to?
    For my 16th birthday, my mom, dad, 17 year old sister and I are planning on traveling somewhere. We've been thinking of Sydney Australia, Barcelona Spain, Rome Italy, Cancun Mexico, Aruba, the bahamas or Honolulu. I've already been to Hawaii though, so we've not taking Honolulu into toooo much consideration. We want to go to an entertaining, adventurous, beautiful kind of place. We will be traveling in the middle of January 2013, by the way. Which one do you think we should go to and why? What is there to do at each one of them? Any other suggestions?

    • ANSWER:
      Barcelona, one of the best European cities and very tourist friendly!

      Suggest you arrive afternoon/evening of day 1, "see" Barcelona for 2 days and leave on day 4. BEWARE if day 2/3 is Monday, change as all State buildings closed on Mondays!

      Have visited Barcelona many times for business/pleasure. Also cruised from there. We always stay at Hotel Regina:-

      http://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Hotel_Revie…

      It is a Best Western, reasonable prices, restaurant if you arrive late, plenty of eateries around square and down Las Ramblas.

      Get the (cheaper than taxi and very comfortable) airport coach into the centre. It terminates at the main square Catalunya. Hotel is 2 minutes walk from the opposite side of the square from where the airport coach stops.

      You can walk down Las Ramblas at night and catch the subway back to the square at the bottom. If you have time carry on at the bottom and go over to the port area (IMAX theatre there, shows English language films in rotation to Spanish) and very welcoming!

      Do be wary of pickpockets, often gypsy women selling flowers from a tray (but their hands are free under tray frisking you!

      Next morning go back to where the airport coach stopped and get on the other bus stop for the tourist buses which operate a hop on hop off service around the 18 main points of interest in the city. Multilingual guides on all coaches. You can't "do" all 18 in a day they are so good/varied, so buy 2 day ticket (discounted)!

      When ready to leave catch a the airport bus back to the airport.

      ===
      Not much difference between Hawaii, Cancun, Aruba, Bahamas - so no "new experience".
      Sydney is very good but still just another interchangeable world class (expensive) city!
      Rome is also very good but for first time European visit Barcelona is better/more organised.

      Been to all of them!

  30. QUESTION:
    Can someone film a walkaround of a 2013 yz450f?
    I have been trying to find a video of a 2013 yz450f, even though people have bought them already, no one has made a video or done a walkaround, can someone please film a walkaround of a 2013 yz450f and link it on this question.

    • ANSWER:
      Maybe they have pre-purchased next years model which will come out probably November, but to my knowledge it isn't in the dealers yet...and nothing on the web about it either....

      If they have already got the bike it can't be a 2013 model, it is a 2012 model because it has been made in 2010...

  31. QUESTION:
    The classic horror movie "Carrie" is being adapted into a 2013 version. What do you think of this?
    A 1976 version plus a 2002 version of the Stephen King book has already been made. Now a 2013 version. What do you think?

    • ANSWER:
      "Plug it up! Plug it up! Plug it up!"

      They're gonna keep remaking stuff until people stop paying for it. Which will probably never happen. Those of us who value creativity and ingenuity in our art/entertainment must face the fact that we are simply in the minority. We have grown apart from Hollywood. So the only thing we can do is find another source for our film needs. Thank the gods we have the internet and that TV's and radio's have "Off" buttons.

  33. QUESTION:
    What is the best time to start queuing for a London film premiere?
    I want to get into a film premiere in London Leicester Square, to stand inside the big barriers but behind the metal gates on the red carpet so I can get the actors autographs. But what is the best time to start queueing so I can get in?
    There is a film I desperately want to go to the premiere of that comes out in 2013, but don't want to be disappointed! Please help!
    I didn't think you had to be invited to stand in the crowd on the red carpet... I thought anyone could do that, like fans and stuff.
    I don't mean actually walking the red carpet and watching the film! I obviously know that is for the stars and people that get invited. I just mean stand behind the metal gates while stars walk the red carpet to get their autographs. I've seen people put it on twitter that they went to the Twilight premiere and they didn't get invited. But for that film premiere a lot of people camped out. I hope I won't need to do that for the film I want to go to in 2013

  34. QUESTION:
    How do you keep someone from stealing your idea?
    I'm writing a script for a horror movie. Me and a couple of friends are going to film it and out it up online. But I'm worried that someone might steal my idea. Do I get it copyrighted or something?

      All written work is presumed to be copyrighted, but that provides only so much protection, because there are plenty of people who ignore copyright law. If you want to protect it, keep the number of copies to the bare minimum and mark them all with your copyright information, such as:

  35. QUESTION:
    What did you think of Les Miserables 2013?
    Opinions on the film? I have already had a mixed review from friends, what do you think about it?
    I live in the UK so it was released in 2013 for me.

    • ANSWER:
      I think it was phenomenal, i consider it one of my favorite movies now. Every actor/actress shined, the stand outs for me though were Anne Hathaway, Hugh Jackman, Eddie Redmayne, Samantha Barks, and my personal favorite was Daniel Huttlestone as little Gavroche. It was really sad if you're not already familiar with the story, and it was very well made. I feel like even though it was long, it should have been a little longer though, it felt like some things were missing from the story.

  36. QUESTION:
    Are there any inappropriate scenes in A Haunted House 2013?
    I wanted to know if there are any inappropriate scenes, like sex scenes or anything related to that, in A Haunted House 2013 movie. I don't want to see it if there is because then it would be awkward with the person I'm going to go see it with. If you have watched it, please let me know! We're going to see it tomorrow, so I want to know if we have to go to a different movie or not.

    • ANSWER:
      Alright so I recently saw this film and thought it was hilarious. Howerver, there are several moments where there are sex scenes(there not actually showed but you can here them) and there are also uncensored clips of female parts. So yes, that would be extremly akward but other than that, this movie is very funny and will definately make you laugh.

  37. QUESTION:
    Why are some Australian new release films at cinemas so late to be released?
    There are two films I am looking forward to seeing at the cinemas; Lincoln by Steven Spielberg and the new Dickens Great Expectations adaption. Both these films were released in 2012 (Lincoln Nov. 9 in US and Great Expectations 30 Nov in UK), however are being released in 2013 in Australia (Great Expectations: 7 March, Lincoln: 7 Feburary). And why shouldn't I just watch them online for free right now and not pay a cent rather than wait 3-4 months?

  39. QUESTION:
    Any ideas on when Sherlock season 3 will come out?
    I've heard rumors about it coming out sometime in 2013, but I don't know...any of you know?

    • ANSWER:
      They begin filming in January.
      It is expected to air in the UK in either the summer or fall of 2013. If you're in the U.S., we usually get it here about 6 months after they get it there. They have not given a definite release date for either the UK or the U.S.
      The only thing I know, is that at the question & answer session held by PBS in the spring in NYC with Benedict Cumberbatch, Steven Moffat, and Sue Vertue, the director of programming for PBS promised that it would be shown here "sometime in 2013."
      If they live up to that promise, I think the best we could expect here is sometime closer to the end of the year. As much as I would like to have it be the fall, also, I would be REALLY surprised if we got it before December of 2013.

  41. QUESTION:
    How to use webcam with telescope?
    I attached a black 35mm film cannister to my webcam and put it on to my telescope, however there is just a white unfocused image showing :( How can I correct this?
    Thanks, Tom
    I have removed the focuser from the webcam, do I need to take something else off too?

    • ANSWER:
      Well ..., first I suggest that you pick up a copy of "Astrophotograpphy for Web Cams - Robert Reeves". It is filled full of information to help you with WEBCAM based Astrophotography.

      Focusing the webcam is or any camera for that matter is very difficult but it is achievable.
      1) During the day, find an far off object like the top of a church steeple and achieve focus with your eyepiece.
      2) Remove the eyepiece and insert the webcam and mark position of the telescope focuser with a pencil.
      3) Back the telescope focuser out until you can see a sharp image. Mark this position with a piece of tape or permanent marker. In this way you'll know where exact or near focus is at night rather that trying to fumble with it in the dark.
      4) If going all the way out doesn't work then return to your marked position and turn the telescope focusing knob so that the focuser travels inward.
      5) If this doesn't work then the image is not squarely hitting the CCD chip and you'll need to realign the canister.
      6) Once sharp focus is achieved, mark this position with a piece of tape or permanent marker. In this way you'll know where exact or near focus is at night rather that trying to fumble with it in the dark.
      7) Once you've completed steps 1-6 go out and try it at night. as of 19-Jan-2013 the moon is pst first quarter and it should be an easy target for you to practiced with. Also, Jupiter is almost directly overhead and it is another excellent target.

  44. QUESTION:
    Do the things in the Film 'Earthlings 2005' Still go on today in 2013?
    Of course, some still does, I suppose what I am asking is specific to Europe and if you know, which parts of the film have been banned now?

    In England, I don't think it has been possible to euthanize an animal without the painless injection for a long time.. Does it still go on in America?

    Thanks
    Yea, It's very Sick* I was wondering to myself, how can those people do it, they must have no soul, mind or heart. They should be fired lol.

    And If anyone says (well if they don't do it we won't have anything to eat), well hundreds of thousands of animals and species on this earth do just fine without a production line of slaughtered cheap meat.

    • ANSWER:
      yes. the only thing that has changed is that now they happen a lot more often on much larger scales back then and the demand for animal products has increased dramatically and spread to other parts of the world which were traditionally on diets pretty low in animal products, and in those countries (like China) the demand for all animal products has increased with the increase in the number of wealthy in those countries, be it domestic animals or wildlife.

      Since then, there has been discussion to end some things like banning sow crates, but it's all just talk and plans so far. And indeed, in the US it's common to gas animals as a killing method which can take up to 20 minutes to kill animals. Banned in some states, but legal and widespread in many.

  45. QUESTION:
    When is the Maximum Ride movie coming out?
    I've recently read the books and while browsing the internet it had said 2013. However, I'm being told by a friend that its been moved back. Help please?

    • ANSWER:
      This adaptation based on James Patterson’s bestselling 8-book series has really gone through a mess. The book rights were originally purchased by Columbia Pictures. However, after going through a year of production they ended up passing over the reins to Universal in 2010. Hitting yet another bump in the road, Twilight director Katherine Hardwick, who for years has been attached to direct this film (and just shortly after demanding a script re-write) recently dropped the project. It appears as if screenwriters Mark Fergus and Hawk Ostby (Iron Man; Cowboys and Aliens) will write a new take, so who knows, maybe getting a new director is a good thing, and this project will finally begin to move forward. However, as there still isn't a director attached to the film there's no telling when or if there will ever actually be a movie. They're still waiting to get the green light.

  46. QUESTION:
    is it still classed as child pornography if the child films themself?
    2013 has become a very strange year for viral videos on the internet. People have been putting videos on youtube that abuse the rights of their nudity+ standards policy.

    A few weeks ago a video of a girl eating her used tampon was uploaded to youtube and a few hours later if was removed by youtube.. but by the time it got taken down people had already seen it and uploaded it to facebook where anything goes. So this video went around facebook getting millions of views.

    A few weeks later another video went viral of a woman "claiming to be high from drugs" making her dog have sex with her. This video was also removed from youtube but again shared on facebook before youtube took it down. Again millions of views there

    Now people on my facebook are talking about " a girl fingering herself on camera". I have not seen the video and to be honest i dont want to because lots of people are saying that the girl int he video is only 14 years old. Am i correct in saying that a 14 year old girl masturbating on camera would be classed as child pornography? Even if she took the video herself would this still be classed as child porn?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes. Child pornography is classified by the subject material, not by the person uploading it. If a 14 year old uploads a video of two adults having sex, that video doesn't become child pornography simply because the 14 year old uploaded it. So it becomes about the what is in the video itself and not about the person uploading it.

  49. QUESTION:
    Is there an official hunger games cast yet?
    I've heard that they will start filming in 2011 and i've looked online and havent found anything official. But i feel like there should be a cast by now. so if anyone knows please tell im desperate, thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      lol @ the other answer.

      There is no official cast. Nothing has been announced by Lionsgate regarding cast, only rumours and people suggesting cast ideas. There is also, no solid release date. I have seen many articles/imdb pages stating that the release date is 2011, 2012 and even 2013. Because casting has not started, and they are still yet to get funding for the movie, this probably means the movie won't be out until 2012. That is just a guess though :)

  50. QUESTION:
    When will we exspect Catching Fire to be in theaters?
    I know hunger games just came out. I've seen it twice! I've also read all the book and I'm just wondering when the next movie is going to come out! If yu haveany information I would love to hear it, and is filming already under way? And do you guys know how much money Hunger Games has made? Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      I've answered this question about 10 times, so I hope i'm right haha

      It's scheduled to relase on 22 November 2013, and apparently they're beginning shooting sometime in the summer.

      The Hunger Games took 4 million worldwide in its opening weekend and became America's fastest-selling film that isn't a sequel.
