Singapore on 2 September 2010 has caught the eye of international film
distributors including Ghost House Underground (USA), Paramount Studios (USA) and Studio Canal/Optimum Releasing (UK/Europe). The producers of HAUNTED CHANGI are both delighted and humbled at the same time to be approached by the international distributors, all well-known specialists in the horror genre. “We are interested in possibly acquiring the NORTH AMERICAN RIGHTS for your film HAUNTED CHANGI. We believe that this may be suitable for our next slate of films for Ghost House Underground (Sam Raimi/Rob Tapert's production company) that will be released through Lionsgate.” David Pollison, Acquisitions Ghost House Underground.

merchandise, there were lobby cards, walking bill-boards, publicity floats, moving mascots and even costumed box office cashiers. New technologies and evolving sensibilities have dramatically transformed not just how movies are made but how they are marketed and consumed. How film releases were promoted was not just about increasing box-office takings but also about attracting sponsors and advertisers. Movie audiences today, accustomed to promotional strategies that involve twitter, blogosphere coverage and toy merchandising know little about the ways movies were promoted in the past and how these paved the way for contemporary marketing methods.
Box Office Hits – The Magic of Movie Marketing offers a glimpse of the creative and unique ways of movie promotion from the 1930s until the present - excavating rarely seen images and vintage pieces from the Cathay collection and archives. Promotional strategies ranged from the dynamic and creative, to the unsophisticated and gimmicky, to the cheeky and somewhat risqué, to the quirky and disarming.
Presented at The Cathay Gallery on the occasion of Cathay’s 75th anniversary from 16 July 2010 - 16 Dec 2010, the exhibition reveals an extraordinary breadth of images and artefacts that are testament to the times from which they emerge and to the pivotal role that Cathay held over seven decades.

According to Cameron, the eight minutes of never before seen footage includes new creatures and action scenes. He said: "Audiences repeatedly told me they wanted more of Pandora, and wished they could have stayed there longer. So we're making that possible."
If you've not yet seen the movie, then this is as good an opportunity as any to see the film the way it was meant to be seen- on the big screen and in 3D. And if you've not yet convinced you should it, maybe this will change your mind.

Call me a slow burner, but I only started to religiously follow the Japanese Film Festival in Singapore from 2005, and honestly, it's one of the premier festival for film buffs here given its eclectic programming from classics to contemporary offerings, with a free screenings to boot!
The Embassy of Japan and Singapore Film Society present the Japanese Film Festival 2010 - an eleven-day celebration of Japanese films - in Singapore. From August 19-29, festival-goers will be treated to 31 Singapore Premieres of groundbreaking Japanese classics, independent cinema and award winning titles that offer a rare glimpse into the Japanese film history, its culture and its filmmakers’ commentaries on the joys and perils of YOUTH. This year, the festival returns to the National Museum of Singapore's Gallery Theatre.
The showcase for this year includes:
1. Works of directors who led the revolutionary change in the 1960s which became known as the Japanese New Wave – a major turning point in the history of Japanese cinema, celebrating the works of OSHIMA Nagisa through his acclaimed works like Boy, Diary of a Shinjuku Thief, Sing a Song of Sex and Sinner in Paradise. Other works in this showcase include YOSHIDA Yoshishige's Good for Nothing and Bloody Thirst, IMAMURA Shohei's Hogs and Warships and A Man Vanishes, SHINODA Masahiro's A Flame at the Pier and ICHIKAWA KON's Ototo.
2. Works by young, aspiring directors birthed from 2 current initiatives in Japan:
a. The independently funded PIA Film Festival in Tokyo, with selections here from its 14th to 17th scholarship films which include A Stranger of Mine, Water Flower, Fourteen, ASYL and Mime-Mime.
b. The Visual Industry Promotion Organisation's New Directions in Japanese Cinema (VIPO NDJC) program, which will feature 10 short films from 2007 and 2008.
3. Latest award-winning films from up-and-coming Japanese filmmakers that are blazing a trail in the international film circuit, which includes KORE-EDA Hirokazu's Air Doll, Live Tape by MATSUE Tetsuaki (who was here in 2008's edition), YOSHIDA Kota's Yuriko's Aroma, NAKAMURA Yoshihiro's Fish Story, MIYANO Masayuki's LALAPIPO and YOKOHAMA Satoko's Bare Essence of Life.

Garfield is fast becoming one of the most respected and sought-after young actors working in the industry today. In a short career, spanning only five years, he has already been directed by, and starred alongside, some of the greatest names and received a BAFTA for a role that won him international praise. Garfield most recently worked with director David Fincher on the upcoming film The Social Network. He previously starred for Spike Jonze on his robot love story I'm Here, which premiered at Sundance this year. He plays the lead male opposite Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan in Mark Romanek's Never Let Me Go, due for release later this year.
Other notable screen credits include Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus playing opposite Christopher Plummer, Johnny Depp, Colin Farrell, Jude Law and the late Heath Ledger, Robert Redford's Lions For Lambs, where he starred alongside Redford, Tom Cruise and Meryl Streep; Revolution Films' "Red Riding Trilogy - 1974" directed by Julian Jarrold, where he lead a stellar cast including Rebecca Hall and David Morrissey, and his unforgettable portrayal of a young ex-con in John Crowley's Boy A, for which he earned the best actor BAFTA in 2008.
