How High-Frame-Rate Technology Killed Ang Lee’s Gemini Man
God help me, I watched Ang Lee’s Gemini Man twice. The first time I saw the film, I was wowed by its action set pieces, in particular a wild motorcycle chase through the streets of Cartagena in which 51-year-old assassin Will Smith is relentlessly pursued by a deadly 23-year-old clone of himself nicknamed Junior. The chase was dizzyingly fast — dazzlingly, disorientingly so — and I do believe I winced and yelped audibly at one point when Junior whacked his older self with the rear of his bike.
A couple of days later, however, I saw the film again. This time, the same chase felt flat, lifeless, phony. Suddenly, I could tell that Junior was largely a digital creation. His movements seemed fake and cartoonish. The bike stunts felt like, well, stunts. Will Smith’s anguished, breathless responses were programmed and unconvincing, as if he’d suddenly forgotten how to act.
Oddly enough, this second time, I was watching Gemini Man in the director’s preferred viewing format. Like his previous feature, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk, Lee shot Gemini Man using allegedly-revolutionary-but-mostly-confounding high-frame-rate technology — in this case, filming at 120 frames per second instead of the traditional 24 frames per second, which is what pretty much all movies have been shot at since the dawn of the sound era. When I saw Gemini Man for the first time at 24fps, as a regular old movie in a regular old movie theater without any fancy new technology, it actually worked okay. At a higher frame rate, though, the grandeur of the big screen suddenly evaporated, and the whole thing seemed … if I may use a scientific word, dinky. Even the explosions felt weirdly small and inconsequential.
To be fair, not all that many people saw Gemini Man at 120fps — that is, if they bothered to see it at all — since only 14 theaters in the U.S. were apparently even capable of showing it at that frame rate. Many screens — more than a thousand of them, in fact — did show it at 60fps, which is still a high frame rate, though not quite as high as Lee intended. None of it worked, business-wise: The film has proved to be a massive flop, and seems set to lose its studio $75 million.
It would be silly to blame the film’s failure on the technology, but I’m going to go ahead and blame the technology.

Proponents of high frame rates (like Ang Lee and Peter Jackson, who shot the Hobbit prequels at 48fps, and James Cameron, who was once reportedly intending to shoot the Avatar sequels at 120fps) believe that this provides clearer, smoother, more realistic images, particularly when it comes to depicting fast movements, adding a level of detail that 24fps struggles to capture. So, Gemini Man is filled with scenes designed to showcase this technology; besides the Cartagena motorcycle chase, there’s also a dimly lit fight in the catacombs of Budapest, as well as a final melee involving a mysterious masked super-soldier doing crazy, rapid-fire kung fu.
There’s no denying that there is something impressive about being able to see all sorts of tiny details in such sequences. And a high frame rate does make for a more realistic image; studies have shown that when processing higher frame rates, the brain starts to lose its ability to tell the difference between real motion (a.k.a. real life) and the illusion of motion (a.k.a. movies). But in this case, realistic does not always mean better. It’s the same thing that happened with Billy Lynn. The hyperreality of the image had the countervailing effect of making everything else seem phony: the acting, the makeup, the sets, even the stunts and the CGI.

The thing is, movies aren’t real, and when we try to make them real, we realize just how not-real they are. Our suspension of disbelief — the very thing that we need for the art form to work — dissipates. The smoothness and clarity of the image doesn’t make us feel like we’re sitting in a room with the characters from Gemini Man, it makes us feel like we’re suddenly sitting on the set with the actors from Gemini Man, watching them struggle through their lines. Yes, we notice more details, but we don’t necessarily notice the right details; some of my friends who saw Gemini Man at 120fps complained of the film’s awkward product placement, such as its perfectly lit cans of Coke; at 24fps, I didn’t notice these. More distressingly, the high frame rate also undermines the film’s other great innovation: the creation of a digital, younger version of Will Smith to play Junior. At 120fps, we can clearly see the character’s limited range of expression.
It turns out the not-entirely-real frame rate of 24fps provides a necessary filter — a cognitive distance — between the audience and the image, and that slightly dreamy, unreal quality may well be essential to conjuring the illusion of what we call cinema. A whole vernacular has developed around the classic frame rate. Without it, the cinematic enterprise falls apart. Earlier this year, for an article on motion smoothing, I interviewed David Niles, an engineer and pioneer in HDTV technology. (Motion smoothing and high frame rates are different issues — and different controversies — and I’m not about to get into that here, but I think it’s fair to say that, in its ideal state, a motion-smoothed image would look like a high-frame-rate image.) Niles told me of tests he’d done showing the same footage at different frame rates to viewers. “We would take a scene between a couple of actors, shoot it at 60 frames per second, or even 30 frames, and then shoot it at 24 and put it in front of audiences to see how they interpreted it,” he told me. “With 24 frames, people liked the actors better — they felt the performances were better.” In effect, this was the same experiment I carried out with myself when I saw Gemini Man twice.
Here’s the weird thing: Ang Lee knows all this. He understands that high frame rates actually require a different approach to cinematic language. “It’s a different media with different perception, different requirements,” he recently told IndieWire. “Digital doesn’t want to be film, it wants to be something else. I think we need to get past that and discover what it is.” But Ang Lee, with his sober, classical film style, his fondness for long takes and elegant close-ups — the very things that I would argue make him such an essential artist of our time — is possibly the major director least suited to trying to make high frame rates work. For all of Gemini Man’s exciting action scenes, by and large it’s a traditional drama, shot in a traditional manner, acted traditionally. It’s an Ang Lee film! It has no business being shot or shown at high frame rates.
There is a potential model for how high-frame-rate cinema might work. In the late 1990s and early 2000s, before high-definition cameras became commonplace in motion-picture production, a lot of independent films and documentaries were shot on high-end digital video cameras, which were often running at slightly higher frame rates — in the U.S., NTSC video ran around 30fps, whereas in Europe, PAL video was around 25fps. Filmmakers were aware that these images did not look like celluloid. The resolution was lower, and the frame rate gave the images a decidedly un-film-like look, even when you had the resources to transfer your footage to 35mm and project it at 24fps.
With those early digital-video movies, if you opted for a traditional shooting style, your footage started to look like a soap opera. People got around this problem of video by developing a more vérité style, relying on handheld images, fast-cutting, and extreme, often fragmented close-ups. (The Dogme 95 movement, with its slightly-tongue-in-cheek “vows of chastity” for production methods, also helped influence this aesthetic.) Video sometimes allowed for a greater intimacy onscreen as well, so elements of performance began to change; the so-called “mumblecore” movement dates to this period as well. As does, interestingly, the “shaky cam” aesthetic used in many mainstream studio movies. Two of my favorite films of this era, Michael Mann’s Collateral and Miami Vice — shot, by the way, by Dion Beebe, the cinematographer of Gemini Man — exploit both the you-are-there intimacy and the agitated fragmentation of digital video.

It Chapter Two Full Movie: is a 2019 American supernatural horror film based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name, produced by New Line Cinema, Double Dream, Vertigo Entertainment, and Rideback and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. It is the sequel to 2017’s It and the second film in the It film series. The film was directed by Andy Muschietti and written by Gary Dauberman, and features an ensemble cast including Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Watch “It Chapter Two Full Movie”
IT Chapter Two’s Biggest Problem Is The Kids
IT Chapter Two isn’t as good as the first movie, and one of the major reasons for that is how it uses the kids from 2017’s IT. Once again directed by Andy Muschietti, IT Chapter 2 sees Pennywise return after 27 years away, once again coming to torment Derry and its inhabitants, which leads to the return of the Losers’ Club.
Now fully-grown adults, IT Chapter Two finds that most of the Losers have moved on from Derry and mostly forgotten about what happened with Pennywise, until Mike Hanlon brings them back to fight him. The change of cast and scope was pre-ordained by the decision to split Stephen King’s IT novel into two different movies, one telling the story of the Losers as kids, and one as adults. However, IT Chapter 2 brings back most of the cast from the first IT movie, but unfortunately, it’s to its detriment.

IT Chapter Two’s Opening Is Too Brutal (& Hurts The Rest Of The Movie)
Appearing through flashbacks, with some de-aging effects applied to try and make it look like no time has passed, IT Chapter Two’s story hinges on the Losers as kids, and it becomes too much. A lot has been made of IT 2’s epic runtime, and these constant flashbacks are a big part of that. While some provide a bit of new context, such as in the plotline regarding Richie’s sexuality, many of them simply cover old ground. Because each member of the Losers has to find their own token, then it means each corresponding kid has to appear, and things start to get very repetitive pretty quickly. IT Chapter Two fails to give its adult meaty storylines that push their characters forward, and being so stuck in the past is a major cause of that issue.
Not only does having the kids so involved make IT Chapter 2 much longer than necessary and overly repetitive, but it also highlights larger issues with the film that might not have been so obvious otherwise. The young cast of IT is quite brilliant, and the adults of IT Chapter Two cannot compete. Where the former are funny, charismatic, and have a great chemistry, the adult cast – with the exception of Bill Hader and James Ransone – are much more stilted and given far less to do. This would have been a problem for IT Chapter 2 anyway, but it’s made into a much starker contrast by having scenes regularly switch between the adults and the kids.
IT Chapter 2 bringing back its younger cast is an understandable decision, since the first movie was so popular, and the performances of Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis et al were a big part of IT’s success. However, it fails to blend the two together, which shows the dangers with splitting King’s book into two such distinct parts (and, on a broader level, why IT is such a tricky novel to adapt as a whole). IT Chapter Two has a few different problems, including not being scary enough, its opening act being too brutal, and underusing Bill Skargård’s Pennywise, but the one that hurts the movie the most is the over-reliance on and constant use of the kids.

Terminator: Dark Fate review – Arnie’s back, and it’s never going to stop
ames Cameron co-produces the latest in the humans v machines odyssey – featuring a fierce Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger as a cyborg Grandpa Walton
o in Terminator’s beginning is his end and in his time-travel action franchise is the ending that brings him back round to another beginning: basically replaying the famous elements from T1 and T2 with some new actors, new twists, newish attitudes to sexual politics, famous lines slightly changed (“Come with me or you’ll be dead in 30 seconds”) and with Arnie himself good-humouredly assuming a wise old-timer attitude, like a cyborg Grandpa Walton.
The Terminator franchise has come clanking robotically into view once again with its sixth film – it absolutely will not stop – not merely repeating itself but somehow repeating the repetitions. Terminator: Dark Fate is co-produced by its original creator, James Cameron, who has also co-written the story. It’s that type of late-period action movie we have seen with Sly Stallone’s Rocky and Rambo properties: a kind of endstopped reboot, which gives the series a new lick of paint, younger cast members, a sprinkling of up-to-the-minute social touches, while also conveying a solemn finality, as if graciously acknowledging its own classic status – though certainly keeping the door open for more films.

So much has happened since Cameron’s sci-fi action classic from 1984 made a mainstream icon and star of Arnold Schwarzenegger. The 1991 sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day – although in my view lacking the steely clarity and force of the original – was dynamically filmed and a huge smash. Then we had a tiresome run of rusty turkeys on a laborious back-to-the-future theme: Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003), Terminator Salvation (2009) – without Arnie – and the irritatingly spelt Terminator Genisys (2015). In the course of all this, Schwarzenegger found time for a brief tenure as governor of California and Christian Bale, playing freedom fighter John Connor in Terminator Salvation, became notorious for an on-set rage-filled meltdown, tape-recorded and uploaded to the web.
But now we are in Mexico, close to the Texas border, almost three decades on from the second Terminator, where smart young auto worker Dani Ramos (Natalia Reyes) finds herself being menaced by a terrifying humanoid-robotic figure who descends naked to Earth in a crackle of lightning in the time-honoured manner: Gabriel Luna has the stern but featureless T2-ish role of the Terminator-Who-Disappointingly-Isn’t-Arnie. But then another figure comes down to Earth stark naked and is apparently on Dani’s side: this is Grace (Mackenzie Davis): a female equivalent of the gallant Kyle Reese from the first film. Then the legendary figure of Sarah Connor herself, played by Linda Hamilton, appears with some heavy weaponry, also intent on saving young Dani, and she is not the only one who is to be on her side. It won’t be long before the great Austrian-American appears, the Terminator ancestor, now living incognito like someone in a witness protection programme, and pretending to be a curtain-fitter called Carl. It’s a pretty droll appearance for the great man.
So you don’t need an MA in terminatorology studies to figure out that this Dani is someone destined to be of enormous importance to the humans’ resistance uprising against their future oppression by the Skynet tyranny. But wait. Wasn’t that supposed to have been forestalled by Sarah Connor’s heroic efforts? Erm, yeah, but then there was a new oppression from some machines called Legion. Oh.
Rambo and the Terminator: the cold war warriors are back
Basically, Arnold is called upon to reprise a character I always thought was fundamentally wrong: the nice Terminator, the Terminator on the side of the angels, although Hamilton’s Sarah Connor has some fierce dialogue scenes with him, unconvinced that he can be anything other than evil. It’s good to see Hamilton getting a robust role, although, sadly, she has to concede badass superiority to Davis. This sixth Terminator surely has to be the last. Yet the very nature of the Terminator story means that going round and round in existential circles comes with the territory.

Everything We Know About Frozen 2
Six years after Disney’s Frozen became an obsession for kids around the world, the story of Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, Olaf, and Sven will continue with Frozen II. The long-awaited sequel will see the animated gang leave Arendelle and travel to an ancient forest where they hope to discover the origins of Elsa’s extraordinary powers.
Directed by: Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee
Written by: Jennifer Lee and Allison Schroeder
Starring: Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Jonathan Groff, Jason Ritter, Josh Gad, Evan Rachel Wood, and Sterling K. Brown
The original Frozen currently ranks as the 15thhighest-grossing movie of all time; it earned $1,276,500,000 worldwide.
While the enormous success of Frozen had audiences eager for a sequel, it took a while for Disney to officially announce the idea. When asked about the possibility of another film in April 2014, Walt Disney Studios co-chairman Alan F. Horn said that their main focus at the time was getting the Broadway musical version of Frozen off the ground.
Frozen II was officially announced in March 2015, during a Disney shareholders meeting.
Disney chairman/CEO Bob Iger believes that Frozen could become one of the company’s key properties. “Mickey Mouse was created in 1928, and he’s still one of our most popular characters,” Iger told CNBC in 2014. “People are downloading Mickey Mouse shorts on the internet fairly regularly. I think that’s an interesting example of when you have a character or stories that people love, there’s no reason why if we don’t continue to support these characters and this franchise, there is no reason why it can’t last a very, very long time … [W]hen you have something that is as good as Frozen in today’s world, and you treat it well, meaning you continue to support it and fuel it with basically new creativity, there’s no reason why it can’t keep going at all. It’s not a fad.”
The first official teaser for Frozen II dropped on February 13, 2019 and logged 116.4 million views in the first 24 hours it was online, making it the most viewed animated movie trailer of all time (and the 15th most viewed movie trailer overall).
Like the first film, Frozen II will be rated PG.
Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee, who co-directed Frozen, will reunite to co-direct the sequel. But don’t be surprised if you see a lot less of Lee in the director’s chair: In June 2018, it was announced that Lee and Pete Docter would be taking over as chief creative officers at both Disney Animation and Pixar.
Expect to see a lot more of Elsa’s personality in Frozen II. In an interview with Fandango, Chris Buck noted how Elsa “had such a dramatic journey, and at the end she’s just starting to feel like she can open up and have some fun again. That’s what was really good about the short [Frozen Fever]—we could have fun with Elsa. And that personality … you will see in the next one.”
Walt Disney Studios will release Frozen II on November 22, 2019.

10 Fan Theories About Frozen ii We Hope Are True
Frozen 2 was one of 2019’s most anticipated movies to begin with, and the hype only intensifies as the November release date draws closer. Despite releasing back in 2013, Frozen’s popularity has remained strong over the years.
10 Most Lovable Quotes From Frozen
It took a while for a sequel to be officially confirmed, but fans have been creating and sharing theories for years now. The enticing trailers and tidbits from interviews have only increased the theories out there, especially where Queen Iduna, King Agnarr, and the magic in this universe are concerned. Naturally, not all the theories listed here can happen, with some even canceling each other out.
Take a look at 10 Fan Theories About Frozen 2 We Hope Are True.
This has been a popular theory ever since the first Frozen movie came out. Queen Iduna and King Agnarr are confirmed to play a role in Frozen 2. They’ve already been seen via flashback in the trailers and Queen Iduna will be voiced by Westworld star Evan Rachel Wood. If done right, Elsa and Anna’s parents being alive could be satisfying and emotionally rewarding. It’s all about the execution, as shock value won’t be enough to make this plot twist work. It could also break the common trend of parents being killed at the beginning of Disney movies, instead exploring how a family rebuilds when they’ve been separated for years.
Elsa’s got the market on ice powers covered, leading some to believe she will meet her match in the form of an individual who wields fire powers. This character could be brand new and serve as a formidable villain who tests Elsa like never before. There is also the possibility that the one with fire powers won’t be a villain. In fact, some fans have theorized that Anna could have fire powers, the two siblings creating a magical balance of ice and fire.
One of the trailers for Frozen 2 begins with a flashback of Elsa and Anna’s father King Agnarr telling his children a story of a place called the Enchanted Forest. Regardless of whether or not Elsa and Anna’s parents are actually alive, it’s a possibility that King Agnarr will narrate the film. It would be fitting to begin with him telling the story of the Enchanted Forest to Anna and Elsa, and then narrate their story when they travel there searching for answers. It would add to the fairy tale storybook quality of Frozen 2 and be a nice way of showing that in a way he’s watching over his daughters in their adventures.
The swirling leaves in the Frozen 2 trailers have led many to believe that the sequel will feature a character with powers related to Fall, much like Elsa has powers related to Winter. Fans have taken this theory a step further by positing that there are four superpowered royals, with each of them wielding powers related to each of the seasons. There are four runes in one of the trailers, with each rune possibly representing each of the superpowered individuals. Some have even said that Anna will have powers related to Summer, while new characters will possess powers related to Fall and Spring.
One of the most impressive displays of Elsa wielding her power in the first film was when she created the snow monster named Marshmallow, a fierce creature who did her bidding. The marketing for Frozen 2 has shown rock creatures similar in size to Marshmallow. It’s possible that the film will feature monsters created by different elements. Elsa can still unleash her snow monster, while characters who have powers related to other natural elements will use monsters created by rocks, fire, water, and so forth. It would certainly be epic to see Marshmallow tangling with the rock monsters and other elemental creatures.
Building off the idea of there being spirits related to the main natural elements comes the theory that Bruni will end up being a fire spirit. Marketing related to Bruni so far shows the cute salamander-like creature as a companion of Elsa’s. That would make it surprising for Bruni to be the fire spirit. The basis for this theory comes from the fact that a fire spirit hasn’t been revealed yet, while spirits related to most of the other natural elements have already been revealed. It would be neat to see Bruni take on more importance than expected.

Disney’s Winning Streak Ends As “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” Flops
In recent years, Walt Disney (NYSE:DIS) has released a parade of sequels, spinoffs, and reboots that build on its most popular franchises. This strategy has helped Disney dominate the U.S. and global box office. In two of the past three years, Disney films have captured more than a quarter of domestic box office receipts, beating the studio’s closest rival by nearly 10 percentage points.
However, while this strategy has been extremely successful, it isn’t foolproof. Investors were reminded of that this weekend, as highly anticipated Maleficent sequel Maleficent: Mistress of Evil came up well short of expectations at the domestic box office.
2019 has been an amazing year at the box office for Disney
Disney entered this weekend on pace for its biggest annual box office victory yet. The House of Mouse had already grossed more than $2.8 billion in the U.S. and Canada this year from 10 films, not including movies from the recently acquired 20th Century Fox studio. That put its year-to-date domestic box office share at 32.1%, more than double that of its nearest rival.
The vast majority of Disney’s year-to-date box office haul has come from five blockbusters: Avengers: Endgame, The Lion King, Toy Story 4, Captain Marvel, and Aladdin. Those five movies all rank among the top six movies of the year for the domestic market, which includes Canada. Combined, they have grossed more than $2.6 billion domestically, led by Avengers: Endgame’s $858.4 million domestic haul, good for No. 2 all time.
Finally, a stumble
Disney’s biggest box-office disappointment of the year came this past weekend, with the release of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. Back in 2014, Disney’s Maleficent — a live-action adaptation of the animated classic Sleeping Beauty, told from the perspective of the original film’s villain — became an unexpected smash hit, grossing $241.4 million in the domestic market and $758.5 million worldwide. Disney looked to repeat that success this fall with a sequel.

MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL MAY BE DISNEY’S BIGGEST BOX OFFICE DISAPPOINTMENT OF 2019. IMAGE SOURCE: WALT DISNEY.
Unfortunately, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil got off to a terrible start, grossing just $36.9 million at the domestic box office on opening weekend. That was barely more than half of Maleficent’s $69.4 million opening-weekend haul from five years ago. The studio — and industry pundits — had expected a much stronger opening, albeit not at the level of the original Maleficent film.
To be fair, strong audience reviews should allow Maleficent: Mistress of Evil to surpass $100 million at the domestic box office this year. In addition, the movie started strong outside the U.S., bringing in $118.1 million overseas on opening weekend. That said, revenue splits are far less favorable for studios in key international markets like China than in the domestic market. As a result, Maleficent: Mistress of Evil faces an uphill battle just to be profitable for Disney.
Two heavy hitters on deck
Fortunately for Disney, the poor showing from the Maleficent sequel doesn’t mean the studio is doomed to end 2019 on a sour note. In fact, the House of Mouse has two highly promising titles queued up for release in the last two months of the year.
First up is Frozen 2, which will hit theaters on Nov. 22. The original film grossed more than $400 million at the domestic box office in late 2013 — and nearly $1.3 billion globally — and the cultural impact of the film has only grown over the years. The poor box office performance of Maleficent: Mistress of Evil serves as an important reminder that there are no sure things in the movie business. Nevertheless, Frozen 2 represents a higher-probability bet by Disney and could easily surpass the original’s impressive box office haul.
Finishing off the year, Disney will release Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker on Dec. 20. The final film in the current Star Wars trilogy is virtually guaranteed to be a hit at the box office. Both of the previous installments were released in mid-December — just slightly earlier than this year’s Star Wars film — and had grossed more than $500 million before the end of those years.
Thus, Disney is on track to blow past its record-setting 2018 domestic box office haul of $3.1 billion. Maleficent: Mistress of Evil’s poor start will make it hard to reach $4 billion in domestic box office receipts, but even that remarkable milestone may be within reach. This will get Disney off to a great start in its new 2020 fiscal year, potentially paving the way for Disney stock to deliver another strong performance.
