The full collection of all eight Harry Potter films plus three bonus discs is Amazon’s gold box deal of the day. They’ve marked it down 50% from its $500 list price. Besides the discs, the set also comes with a label collection and 48-page design book. This is the definitive Potter box for now, so get on it. Mischief managed.
Before Jennifer Lawrence struck it big with ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ she was in a little indie film no one’s ever heard of called ‘The Hunger Games’ and the odds are clearly in your favor because it’s down from its $40.00 list price. For the next four hours only.
While 35mm will never truly go away (I’d like to think it’ll share a similar fate as vinyl, due to its unique properties), this may be the beginning of the end for the format.
Kind of makes me sad to see the old big boys sitting in the corner looking all dejected and useless. Last week we got our new Sony Digital projectors. We now have four digital and three 35mm theatres. There are plans to turn all of our theatres into digital theatres but its a long and arduous process. Not only do they have to change the projector but they have to change the screen as well. I’m glad we’re done for now.
The future is here!
Did not expect the digital projectors to be almost half the size of the 35mm ones. They’re quite large.
Sony is “quietly testing” features that will be exclusive to people who purchase a movie on iTunes, such as the ability to clip scenes from their movies to share on social networks as well the ability to search for certain words in the script. It’s their hope that features like this will entice people to purchase on iTunes instead of DVD while simultaneously acting as an experiment to what’s possible within the digital medium.
I feel like it has to be better than that in order to win people over.
Huge, big, fat news. Wow.
Statement posted just now by Kent Walker, Vice President and General Counsel of Google: Today, the court granted our motion for summary judgment in Viacom’s lawsuit with YouTube. This means that the court has decided that YouTube is protected by the safe harbor of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) against claims of copyright infringement.
This is an important victory not just for us, but also for the billions of people around the world who use the web to communicate and share experiences with each other. We’re excited about this decision and look forward to renewing our focus on supporting the incredible variety of ideas and expression that billions of people post and watch on YouTube every day around the world.
Youtube aren’t infringers! Clips of South Park for everyone!
Note: Viacom plans on appealing, so this isn’t over yet.
