Paramount Pictures announced today that there is a new app for the movie, TF3: Defend The Earth, that allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to scan the posters and convert them into an augmented reality experience. The app allows users to track down their nearest posters and, once they activate the augmented reality, participate in an exciting immersive game. So we’d suggest heading to your nearest IMAX or AMC to find out more!
In the news after the jump, find out which director is planning to reboot “War Games,” see the new poster for “Brave” and surprise yourself at what fourth dimension is being implemented for “Spy Kids: All the Time in the World.”
Seth Gordon To Reboot “War Games”
Seth Gordon is definitely a director who likes to keep us guessing. He won our hearts with the 2007 documentary “The King of Kong,” transitioned into the film industry with the romcom “Four Christmases,” and is now ready to make us laugh our socks off in July 8’s “Horrible Bosses.” His next move is yet again a new one: Deadline has learned that he is readying a reboot of MGM’s “War Games.” This is definitely a pairing we’re looking forward to watching.
“Brave” Posters Hit The Web
Color us curious about Disney/Pixar’s latest original property, “Brave.” It’s not set to hit theaters until July 22, 2012, but the new poster for the flick (courtesy of EW) certainly highlights its darker elements. “What we want to get across [with the teaser] is that this story has some darker elements,” director Mark Andrews told EW. “Not to frighten off our Pixar fans — we’ll still have all the comedy and the great characters. But we get a little bit more intense here.”
Ron Howard And David Koepp Adapt “Spy Vs. Spy”
Ron Howard has a lot of films on his plate right now between “Rush” and “Dark Tower,” but now according to Deadline he’s taking on a new property as well: “Spy vs. Spy.” Based on the comic strip from Mad Magazine, Howard is looking to direct a live-action adaptation from Warner Bros alongside his producing partner Brian Grazer and David Koepp, with a script being written by John Kamps.
Emma Thompson Might Pen “Annie”
It’s nice to have good relationships in Hollywood. Will Smith has turned to his “Men in Black III” costar and the star of the Broadway musical he produces (“Fela! “), Emma Thompson, to see if she would adapt the version of “Annie” he is producing that will star his daughter Willow, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. There is no word from them on whether she’ll end up writing herself in as Miss Hannigan, but here’s hoping.
The Fourth “Spy Kids” Movie
Jumps The Shark Is In Smell-O-Vision
Yes you read that right, Robert Rodriguez is bringing back the Hollywood classic, Smell-O-Vision, to enhance the experience of “Spy Kids: All The Time in the World in 4-D.” What else did you expect that “4-D” to stand for? “After ’Spy Kids 3,’ I had to do something new, add another surprise,” Rodriguez told USA Today. Well, consider us surprised.
Warner Bros Enters “Blood Wars”
Prepare for the vampire genre to be reinvented (allegedly) yet again. TheWrap has learned that Warner Bros. has picked up the project “Blood Wars,” a story in which vampires have control of the world and humans are their slaves, and the humans have to infiltrate the vamp army and plan a rebellion. If successful, the film could return vampire movies to the action genre, but from where we’re standing, “Twilight” hysteria is still pretty popular.
