Crysis 2

TorrentFreak has released a rundown of the most pirated video games and movies of 2011.

Topping the list of games is the PC version of German developer Crytek’s hit sequel Crysis 2 with 3.92 million downloads, which is something of a surprise considering how many huge titles were released last year. It was followed by a much more expected name in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which was downloaded 3.65 million times for the PC. Battlefield 3, FIFA 12, and Portal 2 rounded out the PC list.

Ever want to watch the same episode of a TV show over and over again, but as if it were new every single time? Yeah, now you may have your wish.

Joking aside, THR is reporting that CBS has picked up a pitch from Mark Gordon, producer of the Duncan Jones film Source Code, which would see the show be converted into a new running TV series. The show will follow “three former federal agents who are part of a top-secret program. Each week, they’ll use “Source Code” technology to jump into the consciousness of people involved in tragic events.”

Flatliners

Sony has signed Ben Ripley, who wrote the screenplay for the Duncan Jones mind-bender Source Code, to pen a remake of the 1990 film Flatliners, which starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, and William Baldwin.

The original Joel Schumacher film centered on a group of medical students conducting near-death experiments.

Laurence Mark will produce the new film, which Deadline reports will be “a contemporary reimagining.” Right, remake, exactly, except let me guess: the group uses the Internet — better yet, Facebook! — to conduct the experiments!

Source Code movie posterSource Code
Directed by Duncan Jones
Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga, Jeffrey Wright
Release date: April 1, 2011

Graceful and complex cinema has been a stranger to the bulk of Hollywood productions recently. Long being that elusive beast that promises to resolve all triviality and heighten mediocrity to something astounding when it is adequately attained by a mind that is a true visionary. Inception, the most recent studio picture to attempt such originality, confounded us until our brain cells finally evaporated. We are still trying to gather our wits. But enter director Duncan Jones. He seems to have an artistic ability to present outlandish material in a straightforward manner while keeping our brain cells intact throughout the process. Refinement is what he is after, displaying, through his work, a contemptuous indifference to traditional and conventional norms. We saw hints of such audacity in Jones’ debut film Moon, which isn’t nearly as sophisticated and entertaining as his second feature film Source Code, a film that is proof that Jones’ mind barely senses the lifeless characteristics of conventional cinema. Characteristics, to him, that are ever diminishing.
