It’s safe to say we wouldn’t be understating fact if we said Fast Five wasn’t our favourite film. But things look like they’ve taken an intriguing turn in the Fast and Furious camp this week with word that Jason Statham – yes, that Jason Statham that Lewis loves – could be making an appearance in Fast Six and Fast Seven. The Justin Lin Fast Five follow-up is set to be shooting back-to-back with it’s seventh counterpart, if rumour proves to be true it’s expected that Statham will appear in the sixth alongside Dwayne Johnson. Of course it’s all rumour from an “unnamed source”, but the possibility of a Statham collaboration that really puts his driving skills to the test sounds like a good deal to us.

New Tintin Trailer Is A Shiner | Source: MSN | Film’s release: October 26, 2011

Top-notch talent doesn’t always ensure top-notch quality. Something many are likely to forget as The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret Of The Unicorn befriends them with the names of Spielberg, Serkis, Moffat, Cornish and Edgar Wright. Yet we’re not concerned, because the newest trailer for Tintin in one word looks sensational. Go watch it now, that’s all we have to share. Countdown those days!

Finding Nemo and Co. To Re-Release In Cinemas | Source: LA Times | Films’ release: Eternity

Bless Disney’s business sense; because boy, have they got a lot of it. Before we start, it’s important to note that Disney haven’t ordered the 3D cinema re-releases of Finding Nemo, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Monsters, Inc. because of The Lion King‘s tremendous success, the company actually started preparing these several years ago – it’s called foresight. Quite important to running a business like Disney’s and no, I don’t believe they’re milking a cow. These are old films with wonders that many generations haven’t witnessed and with the genre of animation suiting 3D more than anything else these are the perfect options for cinemas. If you want the low-down on dates, head here.

The images are here, in the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for a trailer soon!

Toshiba Launching First Glasses-Free 3DTV | Source: Engadget | TV’s release: December

Many early-adopters of 3D are rife with complaints over it’s compulsory glasses based approach. But Toshiba may just have the solution, the tech company are launching a autostereoscopic (glasses-free) 3DTV that will be priced around the $10K mark. One small part of the TV’s tech is the ability to automatically track the faces of up to nine simultaneous viewers and optimise the experience for each individual. There’s people who know a lot more about this than me so head over to the source for more.

Steve Jobs, 1955-2011

Many don’t realise that Steve Jobs – who sadly passed away on Thursday after a battle with cancer – actually fathered the Pixar we know today. In 1986, he purchased the company from Lucas Film and set John Lasseter and Ed Catmull the simple task of ‘make it great’. He was Pixar’s CEO until 2006 when he sold the company to Disney and became the largest shareholder in the Disney group. Until his death, Jobs was a director on Disney’s board and, of course, the former CEO of Apple.
