It’s Thanksgiving weekend, the ultimate time for families to hit the movie theater in search of wholesome fare that will please both Aunt Dawn and little nephew Woody. Thus, we’re getting an onslaught of kiddie fare this weekend: The Muppets, Arthur Christmas, and Hugo are all hitting theaters. Unfortunately for those films there’s a little phenomenon called Twilight to contend with. Here’s how the box office should shake out over the five-day weekend: READ FULL STORY

While this isn’t exactly how these famous fellas envisioned Titanic should return to theaters, they’d probably still be thrilled that James Cameron came around and found a way to bring back the 1997 box office Oscar-winning smash. And in 3-D, no less.
“I’ve been looking for years for an opportunity to put Titanic back on the big screen, because that’s really where it belongs,” Cameron says in a behind-the-scenes featurette. The writer/director goes on to explain that he chose the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic to bring the film back to audiences to “re-experience” the movie. Cameron, who refers to the movie as “my baby,” went on to talk about the challenges in making a 3-D movie that wasn’t initially shot in 3-D. “We cleaned it up and made it as pristine as possible,” he says of the update. Watch the full clip below. (Admit it, you get some goosebumps when you see Kate Winslet’s Rose looking at the ship for the first time, too.) READ FULL STORY
The second trailer for The Pirates! Band of Misfits proves the Pirate Captain, the main character in the Aardman/Sony Pictures Animation film, has more of a purpose than being the only time Hugh Grant will ever get to play a pirate: He wants to win Pirate of the Year, comedy ensues. Watch two versions of trailer No. 2 below. The latter, for international audiences it appears, is slightly different: the parrot and monkey get more play, and you don’t have to deal with the “Kick Some Booty” pun. (Lucky them!)

Take dozens of elves trained like Navy SEALs, throw them into a tricked-out Air Force One, and mix in some fancy Mission: Impossible-style rope maneuvers, and you’ve got Arthur Christmas. The latest 3-D holiday film spins Christmas as a military operation. Kris Kringle (Jim Broadbent) is the General, and his burly second-in-command (Hugh Laurie) is named… Steve? Well, I guess not every denizen of the North Pole can have a name like Dasher, Dancer, or Crumpet. Then there’s Arthur (James McAvoy)… Santa’s son is a lovable galoot who believes in Christmas more than anyone, and his heart-of-gold resolve comes in handy as he turns out to be — you guessed it! — the only one who can save the day. See how our unlikely hero is called into duty after the jump. READ FULL STORY
conversion for films that have a choice.” But after 60 weeks and $18 million, he says he feels confident that Titanic is as close to 3-D perfect as possible. “It’s 2.99-D,” he said with a wry grin. That said, Titanic will also be re-released in regular 2-D theaters, as well as in IMAX (in both 3-D and 2-D), which will enjoy some added picture since Cameron shot the film in “Super 35,” which allows for more image above and below a normal widescreen frame.
But what you really want to know is: How did the film look in 3-D? READ FULL STORY

“In my day, we watched war movies in 2-D. We didn’t even have rocket-propelled grenades flying over our heads!”
