Transitioning Comic Books To The Big Screen

Transitioning Comic Books to the Big Screen

Bringing a comic book to the big screen is challenging. First, almost every series of comics, no matter how obscure, has devoted fans. And many of those enthusiasts maintain very specific ideas about how a movie should portray a comic book hero — strong opinions about casting choices, costume designs, and dialogue. If a film diverges too far from the way comic books depict a certain hero, many devotees won’t be shy about venting their

Top Bollywood Movie Stars

Bollywood is a fast growing film industry, producing several titles each year. Although the features aren’t readily available in all theaters, you can access some of them through your Internet service, like the packages available at

Without a doubt the Khans are the kings of Bollywood. Aamir, Shahrukh and Salman have managed to rule almost unopposed at the box office for the past two decades. Salman has overcome his reputation as the bad boy of Bollywood to become one of the most successful stars in the business. Shahrukh, arguably the most recognizable Hindi film actor, has built a business empire out of his fame including a visual effects company and a cricket team. Moving on from his early roles as a romantic lead in such films as “Rangeela” and “Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak”, Aamir has become the face of intelligent Bollywood cinema. He has broken new ground as a producer for more serious fare like “Lagaan”, “Dhobi Ghat” and “Peepli Live”.

Aside from the Khans, Akshay Kumar has made his mark in Hindi cinema, successfully making the leap from action films to comedies in recent years. Hrithik Roshan, who caused a stir with his first film “Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai” in 2000, has since branched out to action films (“Dhoom 2″) and dramas (“Guzaarish”).

The older scions of the Bollywood scene are not without competition. Younger actors such as Imran Khan have come to forefront for his comedies “I Hate Luv Storys”, “Delhi Belly” and “Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na”. Ranbir Kapoor’s diverse range of roles in “Rajneeti”, “Anjaana Anjaani” and “Barfi!” have established him as a top name. Ranveer Singh has also met with success after his debut in the critically acclaimed comedy “Band Baaja Baaraat”.

Bollywood’s established female stars like Aishwarya Rai, Kajol and Preity Zinta have given way in recent years to newer faces like British beauty Katrina Kaif whose film pairings with Salman Khan in “Partner” and “Ek Tha Tiger” have rocketed her to stardom. Kareena Kapoor has gained as much attention for her romantic relationships with co-stars Saif Ali Khan and Shahid Kapoor as for her work in “Jab We Met”, “3 Idiots” and “Heroine”. Meanwhile, Vidya Balan has been praised by Indian critics for playing strong female roles in “Ishqiya”, “No One Killed Jessica”, “The Dirty Picture” and “Kahaani”.

Technology And The Future Of Animated Films

In the early days of computer-generated animation, many people predicted that 3-D films would fail.
