After the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ shooting that left 12 people dead and another 50 injured, theaters across the country are addressing security concerns as sold-out crowds return to theaters for the weekend.
In 1984, a young Disney animator named Tim Burton directed his live-action debut, the short film ‘Frankenweenie.’ Disney planned for the short to run before a theatrical re-release of ‘Pinocchio,’ but once they screened the completed project, they fired Burton on the spot.
Burton, of course, went on to a somewhat legendary career as a filmmaker and in 2010 made Disney over $1 billion on ‘Alice in Wonderland.’ And now, in 2012, Disney is finally OK with the idea of a little boy who brings his dead dog back to life.
Every year it seems like the summer movie season starts earlier and earlier. You can argue that last year it started in April with the release of ‘Fast Five.’ This year, you can argue that it starts in March with the release of ‘The Hunger Games.’
The 2012 Oscars managed to include the expected and shocks all at the same time. Odds on favorite, ‘The Artist’, won five awards including Best Picture, Best Actor for Jean Dujardin and Best Director for Michel Hazanivicius. But ‘Hugo’ gave it a run for its money, also bringing home five awards (though none in the major categories).
