Update: The game appears to have gone. The address www.keepherawake.com went directly to the game. Warner Bros have either moved or removed it.
Movie-list maker Brad Bourland has spent many thousands of hours over the past nine years ranking 9,331 movies. The list primarily includes films made in the English language from 1927 to 1999, and excludes documentaries, made-for-TV movies, shorts and silent films.
Did realise how many green screens were used in TV shows where you wouldn't expect them to be used.
The first-ever film version of Lewis Carroll's tale has recently been restored by the BFI National Archive from severely damaged materials. Made just 37 years after Lewis Carroll wrote his novel and eight years after the birth of cinema, the adaptation was directed by Cecil Hepworth and Percy Stow, and was based on Sir John Tenniel's original illustrations.
With a running time of just 12 minutes (8 of which survive), Alice in Wonderland was the longest film produced in England at that time. Film archivists have been able to restore the film's original colours for the first time in over 100 years.

/Film has posted more information about the Tron 2 teaser trailer that I posted yesterday. It appears it wasn't actually a trailer rather it was the product of 6 months of hard work by director Joseph Kosinski who made the 3-minute teaser to convince Disney that a remake was commercially viable.

I can still remember getting tickets from FHM to watch an early screening of the movie and being gutted when Drew Barrymore was killed in the opening scene. I watched the movie a year before getting access to the Internet so hadn't read anything about the movie.
I learnt about a site today whilst completing a survey on YouGov that is going to allow members of the public to take part in the production of a real movie.
CoProducer.org will allow people to choose the title of the movie, audition for roles, evaluate the script, choose the best trailer, edit the movie, help market it. Basically, people will have a say in every aspect of the movie.
The movie has already been funded so they aren't looking for people to contribute any more money. To reward people who contribute, if you complete between 6 and 12 surveys you will be entitled to receive an equal share of 55% of all profits.
If you want to take part, you need to visit the CoProuducer website and enter your email address before the end of July.
