not really Thor related but Dino De Laurentiis has passed

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...urentiis-44522

De Laurentiis produced more than 500 films in his 70-year career, and was nominated for more than 35 Oscars, winning his first in 1956 for Federico Fellini's "La Strada."

Famed film producer Dino De Laurentiis, who was behind Serpico, War and Peace and Dune, has died. He was 91.

De Laurentiis, who has been making movies for nearly 70 years, passed away inside his Beverly Hills home, where lived with his third wife, Martha. He has six daughters; his only son, Federico, died in a 1981 plane crash. His granddaughter, Giada, is a chef on the Food Network.

“Cinema has lost one of its greats," Rome Film Festival founder Walter Veltroni told the AFP. "The name of Dino De Laurentiis is tied to the history of cinema."

De Laurentiis was born to pasta-maker parents on Aug. 8, 1919 in Torre Annunziata, which is near Naples, but moved to the U.S. in the 1960s.

De Laurentiis entered the film industry at age 20, and went on to produce more than 500 movies, including those by Federico Fellini and Roberto Rossellini.

He won his first Oscar in 1956 for Fellini's La Strada, and another in 1957 for Nights of Cabiria. He was nominated at least 30 more times, and received the Irving G.Thalberg Memorial Award in 2001 at the Oscars for demonstrating a "consistently high quality of motion picture production," according to Bloomberg.

“I’ve been very lucky in my long life,” De Laurentiis said afterward. “On three continents, in diverse cultures, through happy moments, not-so-happy moments, and moments as marvelous as this one, I’ve had the privilege of working with the cinema’s greatest masters.”

The Venice Film Festival honored him with a lifetime achievement award in 2003.

See to ME seeing a pirated version is fine and dandy BUT like a Star Wars film or LotR film Thor to ME is a must see in the Theater to get the whole effect.
You just can't get that at home, at least I don't know anyone with a theater system that would do those movies justice.

Thor is most definitely a cinema experience. People would be nuts to settle for a cam version of this film.

I can't wait for the sound and feel of Thunder and lightning strikes.
The Glory of Asgard visually will be amazing!

Well the only two films I see coming out in December by Paramount are True Grit and The Fighter.
I can see Thor being attached to either really.

As opposed to when it's usually the other way around, and the rest of the world watches pirated versions of the movie before it comes out in their countries.

This seems like a move against piracy to me.

Yeah, piracy's usually much more rampant in other countries. Even if it does leak to torrent sites here in the US, the vast majority of people are likely to watch it in theaters rather than pirating it.

yeah TV movies nothing like the Caliber they are today.
I grew up back then even used a shot of the Spider-man stunt man on a wall as Reference at a fine art school because they were dead set in us having references. that ticked them off. lol
It wasn't Marvel studios tho. I know some of it was Cannon wasn't it?

To the Piracy issue. I would rather in fact 10000% rather go see it in movie theatres (here in Orlando we have an 80 ft. IMAX on I drive ) in all its glory then on a crap shaky cam with people heads showing.

Ive been waiting for this movie since the moment I got wind of it almost a year ago. There is no way Im going to defile my viewing of this and the other Marvel films by "borrowing" a crap version online.

And thats my piece

Warblade had also pointed out Thor is distributed by Paramount and Tron By Disney. Unless the two distributors worked something out it doesn't look like Thor will be on Tron.
I would think since Disney owns Thor that being different Distributors wouldn't make a difference.

I don't think distributors make a difference.

I've seen plenty trailers attached to movies from a different studio.
wasn't the dark knight trailer on some prints of Spiderman 3? I definitely recall seeing that trailer, but I didn't see any Warner Bros movies earlier that year..

Yeah I'm thinking the same thing BG.
When I worked at the Theater years ago they put what trailers they wanted on the films because they had several theaters in different cities but limited screens and drive-inns. so They'd get you to go to one theater by advertising in the other theaters what was showing where.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Disney recently buy the distribution rights for Thor, Captain America and all subsequent Marvel films?

This is because a projectionist has added the trailer to a movie, not because it comes with the movie.

Future films. Thor is still with Paramount.

So we're basically looking at The Fighter or True Grit in December which is the 17th and the 22nd for Paramount to attach the trailer too.

Tron Legacy is coming out on Dec 17th! That's where the trailer is supposed to be because it's a Disney movie also.
