New Gravity Poster for Imax

I feel I haven’t professed my love enough for Gravity probably because when I got around to actually watching it, it was already in the last days of it’s theatrical run, and it seemed that I wouldn’t have anything else to add to the all round acclaim the movie has received.

Now that it’s been nomimated for a ton of academy awards and has a new run in Imax theatres, the producers have come up with a new poster  which looks pretty cool, it does have a bit of a nod to Kubricks 2001: A Space Odyssey but then again so does the movie.

Since opening in October 2013, the film has become the highest-grossing IMAX release of 2013, both domestically and globally. It’s also the 3rd most popular IMAX DMR® film of all time worldwide.

Defintley worth another rewatch in Imax, if you can get your hands on some tickets!

Despite the Gods Trailer: Jennifer Lynch and the making of Hisss

The Trailer for Despite the Gods combines two things that I love hearing about: the making of a movie that ends up in a disaster for the film makers (Lost in La Mancha, Heart of Darkness) and non-indians thinking that India is a mythical land of enlightenment,  nirvana and cows but ending up finding that levels of insanity that they could never imagine. (Think the guy from the Oatmeal who went to India).

 

 

 

 

Here’s the trailer:

 

I never watched Hisss as I could never find a decent copy of it but I was always intrigued by this weird cross over movie starring Malika Sherawat (who is awesome) and David Lynch’s daughter especially after our good friend FilmiGirl loved Hisss and even wrote up this awesome review. Plus we get to see more of Sherawat which we can all applaud. I’m really looking forward to watching Despite the Gods for all these reasons.

 

And a movie that gave us Malika Sherawat in this Holi Song can’t be all evil can it?

Momentos by Nuno Rocha

Beautiful short film by Portugese Director Nuno Rocha commisioned by LG. I have one of their TV‘s and am very satisfied (so LG throw some money the Upodcast way) and besides that the short film is beautiful. But then again , I have a heart that beats hard and fast. Keep a tissue handy for any tears and check out these achingly moving 6 minutes of cinema after the jump:
