  1. Over the past two weeks, dozens of pirate streaming sites had their homepages stripped from Google's search results. The removals are triggered by a series of targeted takedown requests sent by the law firm Kilpatrick Townsend, which acts on behalf of several major Hollywood studios. Over the past two weeks several pirate streaming sites have seen their homepages disappear from Google’s search results. Earlier this week we reported how GoMovies switched to a new domain name, for this very reason, but on closer inspection it appears that several other sites have suffered the same fate. While homepages have been removed before, the takedown notices that triggered the recent removals seem to be a systematic effort. They are all sent by the prominent law firm Kilpatrick Townsend, which acts on behalf of a variety of Hollywood movie studios. The notices, of which the first was sent roughly two weeks ago, all follow a similar pattern. They identify infringing content on pirate streaming sites and list the individual URLs for these movies. In addition, however, many also include the homepage, which often highlights the same movie as a “new” or popular title. In the case of Gomovies.is, a request was sent on behalf of Warner Bros. to remove Wonder Woman’s streaming page from Google, as well as the homepage where the movie was listed in the popular section. This worked, not only for the GoMovies domain name but also for dozens of other streaming sites including yesmovies.org, watchfree.ac, xmovies.is, watch29.com, vivo.to, tunemovie.com, putlockervip.com, playmovies.to, moviesub.is and fmovies.ac. The takedown notice The example above is just the tip of the iceberg. Over the past two weeks the law firm has targeted many pirate streaming sites, acting on behalf of Warner Bros, Walt Disney Studios, Paramount Pictures, NBC Universal and others. This effectively removed dozens of pirate site homepages from search results. To outsiders, it may seem like a homepage is just another link but for site owners, it’s a crucial matter. Many of these streaming sites rely on their brand name to remain findable in search engines, and when the homepage is removed, it’s nearly impossible to rise to the top of search results. Although Google removed many of the early requests, it’s not blindly removing all URLs. In response to several recent notices the search engine decided to take “no action” for the homepages, which is why gomovies.sc, cmovieshd.com, ap551.com, and others remain indexed. It’s possible that the infringing content was no longer linked on these homepages when Google reviewed the DMCA notices in question. As for GoMovies, they simply decided to move to a new URL and remove any infringing content from the homepage so they don’t face the same problem in the future. TorrentFreak
  2. Vodlocker.to is offering an interesting service that not only provides streaming movies and TV shows in the browser but also allows them to be published anywhere on the web. After entering the movie's IMDb number, users get an embed code which can be entered into any web page, where the movie will play in a YouTube-like window. There's even support for Chromecast. While torrents are still the go-to source for millions of users seeking free online media, people are increasingly seeking the immediacy and convenience of web-based streaming. As a result, hundreds of websites have appeared in recent years, offering Netflix-inspired interfaces that provide an enhanced user experience over the predominantly text-based approach utilized by most torrent sites. While there hasn’t been a huge amount of innovation in either field recently, a service that raised its head during recent weeks is offering something new and potentially significant, if it continues to deliver on its promises without turning evil. Vodlocker.to is the latest in a long list of sites using the Vodlocker name, which is bound to cause some level of confusion. However, what this Vodlocker variant offers is a convenient way for users to not only search for and find movies hosted on the Internet, but stream them instantly – with a twist. After entering a movie’s IMDb code (the one starting ‘tt’) in a box on the page, Vodlocker quickly searches for the movie on various online hosting services, including Google Drive. Entering the IMDb code “We believe the complexity of uploading a video has become unnecessary, so we have created much like Google, an automated crawler that visits millions of pages every day to find all videos on the internet,” the site explains. As shown in the image above, the site takes the iMDb number and generates code. That allows the user to embed an HTML5 video player in their own website, which plays the movie in question. We tested around a dozen movies with a 100% success rate, with search times from a couple of seconds to around 20 seconds maximum. A demo on the site shows exactly how the embed code currently performs, with the video player offering the usual controls such as play and pause, with a selector for quality and volume levels. The usual ‘full screen’ button sits in the bottom right corner. The player can be embedded anywhere Near the top of the window are options for selecting different sources for the video, should it become unplayable or if a better quality version is required. Interestingly, should one of those sources be Google Video, Vodlocker says its player offers Chromecast and subtitle support. “Built-in chromecast plugin streams free HD movies/tv shows from your website to your TV via Google Chromecast. Built-in opensubtitles.org plugin finds subtitles in all languages and auto-selects your language,” the site reports. In addition to a link-checker that aims to exclude broken links (missing sources), the service also pulls movie-related artwork from IMDb, to display while the selected movie is being prepared for streaming. The site is already boasting a “massive database” of movies, which will make it of immediate use to thousands of websites that might want to embed movies or TV shows in their web pages. As long as Vodlocker can cope with the load, this could effectively spawn a thousand new ‘pirate’ websites overnight but the service generally seems more suited to smaller, blog-like sites that might want to display a smaller selection of titles. That being said, it’s questionable whether a site would seek to become entirely reliant on a service like this. While the videos it indexes are more decentralized, the service itself could be shut down in the blink of an eye, at which point every link stops working. It’s also worth noting that the service uses IFrame tags, which some webmasters might feel uncomfortable about deploying on their sites due to security concerns. The New Vodlocker API demo can be found here, for as long as it lasts. Article source
  3. DVD-Ranger reports he found a new variant of the Blu-ray audio watermark copy protection Cinavia in the movie Mechanic: Resurrection from the movie studio Lionsgate. Besides a new Cinavia variant, the movie also seems to be protected with other new copy protections. According to DVD-Ranger the Cinavia signal on the Mechanic: Resurrection movie isn’t continous like on other movies, but instead it’s in some “long played segments”. In the first part of the movie the Cinavia signal appears to be absent to be introduced at about 20 minutes again. DVD-Ranger suspects the movie studios have taken measures against CinDe, his free Cinavia detection software. Apparently changing the the start of the Cinavia signal tricks CinDe into thinking the movie isn’t Cinavia protected. I won’t be showstopper according to DVD-Ranger as he writes, “However, will this hinder CinDe to do its job? Not really, because you can still scan each segment of the playlist. Maybe we will update CinDe soon to scan inside the file with a variable start time.” He goes on writing, “Personally, I have to say, I find it an honor that the film studios have taken note of CinDe. But it is crazy that the studios now fight against information tools.” Databases for the movie Mechanic: Resurrection are now available for CinEx HD, but DVD-Ranger reports they might not work properly because the movie also contains other copy protections. CinEx HD only removes Cinavia, so the other copy protections have to be beaten by Redfox and/or DVDFab first. More information can be found on DVD-Ranger’s blog. Article source
  4. After Saturday's story about the code samples in the new movie Arrival, an anonymous reader reminded us of this classic essay at Nmap.org: Nmap.org has a tradition -- the first person to notify them when new Nmap appears in a new movie wins a signed copy of Nmap Network Scanning "or a T-shirt of your choice from the Zero Day Clothing Nmap Store." (The site adds that "movie script writers, artists, and digital asset managers are also welcome to email Fyodor for advice.") And Nmap.org just added another film, Oliver Stone's new movie about Edward Snowden. According to the site, even the movie's trailer features Nmap. Anybody else have their own favorite stories about code in the movies? Nmap In The Movies Article source
  5. Louis Theroux's much-anticipated upcoming movie investigating The Church of Scientology has been leaked online ahead of its UK/US theatrical release. My Scientology Movie, which was funded by the BBC, appeared on torrent sites a few hours ago in perfect quality. Born in Singapore to an American father and English mother, Louis Theroux has grown to become one of the UK’s most-loved documentary makers. Last weekend Theroux fans were treated to a follow-up to the filmmaker’s interview with Jimmy Savile, the now-notorious entertainer and sex offender who brought scandal upon the BBC. However, that was a mere hors d’oeuvre to the UK premiere this Friday of Theroux’s biggest creation yet. My Scientology Movie is Theroux’s long-awaited big-screen debut, with a documentary that investigates and ultimately pokes fun at the famous church of the same name. Funded by the BBC , My Scientology Movie had its initial airing at the London Film Festival in October 2015 but fans of the documentary maker have been treated only to trailers ever since. This morning, however, all that changed. Just a few hours ago, Theroux’s latest offering appeared online and began spreading across torrent and file-hosting sites alike. TF is informed that the release first appeared on a fairly well-known private tracker. However, we were unable to confirm that before publication so have omitted its name from this report. According to numerous sources, the theatrical release has a duration of 99 mins and this ‘pirate’ copy lives up to that billing, indicating that this indeed the full movie intended for release later this week. Louis gets a grilling Also noteworthy is the quality of the release. Often leaked ‘cam’ versions appear online in the days after a commercial release but this is an almost perfect copy, something that will be of concern to the movie’s funders at the BBC. The big question now is where the copy originated from. Sometimes so-called DVD screeners provide the kind of quality we’re looking at here but in this case, the people behind the release indicate that the movie was captured from a ‘WEB Rip’ source, i.e some kind of streaming system available over the web. Rather than ‘pirate’ in nature, these sources are often official. OSN in the Middle East, for example, sometimes offers movies before their official release in the West. The same can be said of various South Korean services, hence the Korean subtitles that are visible on many early, good quality movie releases. The police get involved Since the leak is so fresh (and also since much of the United States is still asleep) downloads of My Scientology Movie are currently fairly modest. That is likely to change as the day progresses and the news spreads. Update: The movie had a theatrical release in the Netherlands earlier this year but is yet to premiere in the UK or US. Update2: Two separate sources indicate the movie has been ripped from iTunes. Source: https://torrentfreak.com/louis-therouxs-my-scientology-movie-leaks-online-before-theatrical-release-161005/
  6. Plex is a pirate’s best friend. It’s by far the best way to get movies downloaded illegally from the computer to TV. Sure, Plex has a handful of useful, legal features, but let’s be honest, its big claim to fame is hosting and serving downloaded movies. And now the company behind the software announced a service where users can stream movies, photos and music stored on Amazon’s cloud as if the content was streamed locally. But don’t tell Amazon about the pirated stuff. The Plex Cloud, as the new service is called, got a fair amount of coverage when it launched earlier today. On the surface it’s exciting. No longer would users have to constantly run and maintain local servers to host. Plex Cloud essentially lets users create their own Netflix. All the movies and photos and music are hosted in the cloud — the same cloud Netflix uses, actually — and they’re called down to devices on demand. Even the Plex server software is streamed from the cloud. Users just have to pay the $60 yearly fee for unlimited storage on Amazon Web Services. And this is where it gets hairy. Amazon explicitly bans users from hosting infringing content on its servers — content such as downloaded movies. I haven’t tried the service yet, though Plex offered to get me a beta pass as soon as they’re available. I expect it will work even with movies downloaded from The Pirate Bay and countless other sites. Amazon Web Services does not prevent users from uploading such content. But AWS will likely remove it as soon as it’s identified. Amazon is not alone in this stance. Uploading such content to cloud services has long been a point of debate. Some users feel as long as the content is not publicly shared or advertised, the content will run under the radar of Amazon, Google, and the rest of the cloud providers. Plex’s stance on uploading illegal content to AWS is predictable: “Those who use Plex Cloud should abide by the Terms of Use of both Plex and Amazon,” a company spokesperson told me when asked specific questions about AWS’s policies around downloaded movies. Even operating in a gray area, Plex Cloud is an interesting step in personal computing. It removes the need for personal infrastructure to achieve the same outcome as if the Plex software was running on a home computer. And this is the promise of cloud computing. As for the Plex Cloud, if I relied on Plex to serve downloaded movies and TV shows to my family, I would keep that content stored safely and privately on a server in my basement next to the crock pot and Halloween decorations. If I did such a thing. But I don’t. Article source

  8. Can’t remember that movie? This AI video search helps find films from the details you know Have you ever struggled to come up with the name of a movie? When you get stuck trying to explain a film to your friends using a web of celebrity gossip and vague descriptions, Val.ai may be just what you need. The Artificial Intelligence system can analyze basic descriptions of any movie, and churn out deep search results that get those titles from the tip of your tongue to a watchable screen. It could soon be used to help make video recommendations based on specific aspects of the movies you like most. Valossa is an AI tech firm based in Finland, and Val.ai is their first release. The technology is still being refined in its beta testing phase, but plenty of search results will already get you directly to the titles you need. Searching for “Tom Cruise kills aliens” will return Edge of Tomorrow as the first result, and Valossa suggests search ideas from “movies with Sean Connery in red pants” to “all movies that are comedies in Hawaii”. The AI technology behind Val.ai is based on years of research conducted at the University of Oulu in Finland, according to the Valossa team. The Val.ai system analyzes movies and videos to identify individual concepts, like places, themes, specific actors, and more. In the hands of content and service providers, Val.ai should be able to make any database of video content fully searchable in real-time. Val.ai can interpret chained voice commands, like an initial search for “epic history movies” which can then be further refined by a command like “only show me the ones with large battle scenes.” In future versions, Valossa hopes that Val.ai will become fully compatible with voice command systems like Alexa. As of now, Alexa integrations are also still in the beta testing phase. The basic Val.ai technology for real-time video content analysis has already been tested with Finnish TV broadcasts, and Valossa hopes international providers, producers, and advertisers might pick up the technology soon. For now, you can start using their deep search feature online to help you find the name of that one movie you can’t quite remember. Source

  10. For many years torrent sites were the go-to destination for most movie and TV-show pirates. However, new data shows that this is no longer the case. The vast majority of unauthorized videos are now consumed through pirate streaming sites, good for more than 57 billion visits during last year alone. A decade ago online video streaming was still a relatively new phenomenon. YouTube had just celebrated its first anniversary and Netflix hadn’t even rolled out its streaming service. The piracy landscape also looked quite different at the time. Streaming sites were pretty much non-existent and the vast majority of all movie and TV-show piracy was torrent related. This has drastically changed in recent years. According to a new report published by piracy tracking outfit MUSO, streaming sites have taken over as the prime source of video piracy. New figures released publicly this week are part of the company’s annual report, which shows that nearly three quarters of all movie and TV-show traffic now goes to streaming sites. The data from MUSO covers visits to 14,000 of the largest global piracy websites from 226 countries. In total, the company recorded 141 billion visits to pirate sites last year. More than half of these visits relate to video piracy, which includes movies and TV-shows. The vast majority of these, 57.84 billion (74%), are visits to pirate streaming sites. According to MUSO, there is a clear transition away from P2P sites and services to streaming. This can in part be explained by improved Internet connectivity across the globe. Despite the availability of legal services, the United States tops the list of video pirates, representing 12% of total traffic, which is good for nearly 10 billion visits. Torrent site traffic is slowly declining, for video content at least. Roughly 17% of the traffic went to torrent sites, and MUSO reported a clear downward trend during 2015. Direct download sites account for 8% of video piracy visits, which is relatively stable. The data further reveals that both streaming pirates and torrent users predominantly use desktop machines to visit these sites, 72 and 77 percent respectively. This means that mobile piracy remains relatively small. Visits to streaming sites by device (Muso.com) The movie and TV-show figures are in line with the overall trend MUSO revealed earlier, where pirates move away from torrent sites to other distribution platforms. “Piracy audiences are becoming better connected, more tech savvy, and know what they want, which is why so many of them have chosen to stream infringing content, rather than download it illegally,” MUSO’s CCO Christopher Elkins says. Overall, MUSO’s report concludes that the piracy ecosystem is rapidly changing. It will be interesting to see how the reported traffic trends develop during the years to come.

  11. Microsoft has been hard at work improving its Groove music app on Windows 10 in recent weeks, with a long string of updates making their way out. It hasn't forgotten about its other major entertainment app on the OS, though. Microsoft's Ellen Kilbourne has shared details of a new update for the Movies & TV app (known as Films & TV in the UK) heading to Windows 10 users. The update is being made available first to those in the Windows Insider Fast ring, bringing a range of improvements to the app on PC, phone and HoloLens: You can now control the Movies & TV app on your console (Xbox Preview Only) using the Xbox app on your PC or phone. We changed the experience when you choose a movie or TV episode that you’ve already partially watched. The app now asks if you want to restart from the beginning or continue from where you stopped last time. This means you don’t have to use the transport controls to get back to the beginning if you’d like to start over again. When searching for content from the Movies & TV app, you can now see Store search results too. This gives easier access of Store content from the consumption app and is especially important for console users who are only using the Movies & TV app to playback Store content. You might notice that they search results aren’t as high quality as they have been in the past within the Store app…that issue is known and is being addressed. We added more telemetry to tell us which codecs you’re using so that we can better understand the types of files you have. The update bumps the version number up to 3.6.2350.0, and assuming everything goes smoothly with its Fast ring testing, it's likely to become more widely available over the next week or two.

  15. Last week hundreds of thousands of people downloaded a copy of the blockbuster "London Has Fallen," and some of these pirates are in for a nasty surprise. To recoup some of the losses, the makers are sending automated $300 'fines' to those who get caught. In addition, over a thousand U.S. citizens have been sued. Many Hollywood insiders see online piracy as a major threat, but only very few are willing to target file-sharers with lawsuits or settlement demands. Millennium Films and LHF Productions, two companies behind the blockbuster “London Has Fallen” have no problem crossing this line. A few days ago a high quality Blu-Ray rip of the movie appeared online, more than a week before the official release. Since then hundreds of thousands of people have pirated the film, much to the outrage of the studios. To compensate the potential revenue loss of these and earlier leaks, LHF Productions has filed lawsuits against more than 1,000 people in recent weeks. The cases are filed against “does” who are only known by their IP-address, with the studio then trying to uncover their real identities by subpoenaing their ISPs. After their personal info is released, the accused Internet subscribers will get a settlement offer, which can go up to several thousands dollars. A relatively straightforward way to recoup damages, but there is an even easier option. In addition to the lawsuits the film’s production company Millennium Films has started sending automated settlement demands to U.S. Internet subscribers. These settlement offers bypass the courts and are sent as part of a DMCA notice. Several Internet providers voluntarily forward these notices to the account holders associated with the infringing IP-addresses. Excerpt from the notice The language in the notices will be quite intimidating to some. After listing the evidence, Millennium Films’ anti-piracy partner CEG TEK warns that the subscribers could face a potential lawsuit. “CEG informs you that you may be held liable for monetary damages, including court costs and/or attorney fees if a lawsuit is commenced against you for unauthorized copying and/or distribution of the Work listed above,” it reads. However, the letter also offers a way out. By settling the case right away and paying $300, all problems will go away. To increase the pressure, CEG TEK adds a hard deadline that expires after a few days. “If you fail to respond or settle within the prescribed time period, the above matter may be referred to attorneys representing the Work’s owner for legal action. At that point the original settlement offer will no longer be an option, and the settlement amount will increase significantly,” the company adds. Those who follow the link are directed to the settlement page where the suspected pirates can pay their dues directly through a credit or debit card. CEG TEK’s settlement page CEG TEK is not a new player on the scene, but it’s rare to see notices for such a high-profile movie. The company mostly works with players in the adult industry, who typically demand a few hundred dollars per infringement as well. Despite all the anti-piracy activity, thousands of people are still sharing “London Has Fallen.” This means that there’s enough potential for more lawsuits and automated fines. Article source
  16. We've got shiny ships, aliens with oddly geometric lines on their faces, and an intense crash landing. Star Trek Beyond Trailer #2 (2016) - Paramount Pictures The second Star Trek Beyond trailer dropped this weekend, and it gives us a much better sense of what our heroes will be dealing with in this flick. For those who haven't been paying attention, the premise of the new movie is pretty simple: New bad guy Krall (Idris Elba, unrecognizable under spinyface makeup) wrecks the Enterprise with a seriously badass weapon; everybody is marooned on a planet; and there are motorcycles. Given that the movie was directed by Justin Lin of Fast and the Furious fame, you can bet that the action scenes are deluxe and the motorcycles look great. Star Trek Beyond was co-written by comedian Simon Pegg, who plays Scotty, and the snippets of dialogue we get in this trailer are pretty hit-or-miss. All the daddy issues confessions we get at the beginning of the trailer are just awkward and feel like warmed-over crap from the first movie. But there are a couple of funny one-liners, and I like the repartee between Spock and Bones. But is this the Trek movie you've really been waiting for? Many fans felt like Star Trek Into Darkness was, shall we say, less than great. So there's nowhere to go but up. The movie is out in the States on July 22. Article source
  17. Social networks are increasingly being used to spread copyrighted content but rather than take down infringing items individually, entertainment companies would like to take a broader approach. Should copyright holders be allowed to wipe out communities with millions of members to protect copyright? VKontakte (or Russia’s Facebook as it’s often known) is the largest European social network with 300 million registered users, around a third of which are active. Due to the way it hosts user content largely without question, VK carries huge amounts of infringing movies, music, TV shows. Like similar sites, vKontakte has groups dedicated to endless regular topics. It also has groups dedicated to movie and TV show piracy inhabited by those looking to obtain content for free. Of course, copyright holders have the ability to take this content down via regular takedown notices, but like their counterparts in the West they’re tired of playing whac-a-mole. To this end, copyright holders are now teaming up to put vKontakte under pressure to remove entire groups from where infringing content is being made available. Under the immediate spotlight are the ten largest groups specializing in movies and TV shows. They are huge. Alexei Byrdin of the Internet Video Association informs Russia’s Izvestia that each group has a minimum of one million members while the largest has more than seven million. As a result the rightsholders’ anti-piracy group wants vKontakte to completely take them down. “We have repeatedly appealed to the groups themselves to remove the content, but the complaints were not satisfied and content continued to be active,” says WebKontrol CEO Olga Valigurskaya, adding that if vKontakte wants to do the right thing it should either delete all the content or remove the groups altogether. However, vKontakte’s owners over at Mail.ru (who own all three top social networking platforms in the country) see the situation somewhat differently, as do vKontakte themselves. “In most cases we refuse to block communities specializing in video content as we consider this measure excessive,” a vKontakte spokesperson explained. “Instead, we remove specific videos that violate the rights of a particular copyright holder, provided that the rightsholder has provided all the necessary documents. And managers of these communities are sent a notification about the inadmissibility of posting illegal content.” Rightsholders wanting broad anti-piracy action and tech platforms demanding a precision approach is a common and growing theme online today. A similar war of words is playing out in both the United States and Europe, where whole sites are being censored and entertainment companies are demanding a “takedown, staydown” approach to copyright enforcement. Whether they will get their way remains to be seen, but in the meantime the battle lines are being drawn in Russia – and unsurprisingly it’s copyright versus tech all over again. “The platform should stop IP violations. If they cannot stop the violation in any other way, except to remove a whole group, then it is necessary to remove the group,” National Federation of the Music Industry (Sony, Universal, Warner, EMI) chief Leonid Agronov told Izvestia. Agronov’s stance was predictably rejected by Sergey Grebennikov, director of the Regional Public Center of Internet Technologies (ROCIT), a non-profit with a mission to popularize the Internet. “Deleting whole groups is unlawful,” he said. “Removals should concern only the videos, for which rightsholders have rights.” There can be little doubt that the issue of infringing online content is largely descending into a worldwide battle not between copyright holders and actual pirates, but between entertainment companies and Internet platforms such as vKontakte, YouTube and Google. It won’t be settled any time soon. Article source

  19. After decades of waiting for a new Ghostbusters movie, here’s your first footage from one. To celebrate the launch of this awesome trailer, we talked with director Paul Feig, producer Ivan Reitman and writer Katie Dippold, and they told us why this trailer reintroduces so many of the things we love. GHOSTBUSTERS - Official Trailer This trailer starts by nudging your nostalgia with familiar music and visuals. Then, once we get to the new stuff... it still feels familiar. We see a library ghost, Slimer, proton packs, and Ecto-1—but everything is just slightly tweaked and modernized. Even the characters, three radically different scientists and a local resident, mirror the original film. Meanwhile, the humor feels a bit more physical than the first movie, which is in line with Feig’s other movies (Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy) but it mostly works. Really, what you get here is simply, a brand new Ghostbusters. Wednesday, speaking to an audience of super fans in Los Angeles (who stood and cheered the trailer, twice) as well as members of the press, Feig explained that the nostalgic feel of the trailer is part of the movie itself. “I’d be bummed if I didn’t see the Ecto-1 and all that stuff,” he said. “So we wanted to make sure we give those nods—but make them our own, and give them their own original origin story. When you see the movie, there will be a lot of things you’re happy to see, but they’re coming at you at a slightly different way.” Make no mistake, despite the cameos, and the recognizable people, places and music, this new Ghostbusters is a reboot, not a sequel. The film-makers wanted to start from scratch, so this world, and these characters, would have to earn their place. “To say ghosts have existed for 30 years [would be] a different world,” Dippold said. “In the original it’s so fun to see the ghosts unleashed for the first time and we didn’t want to skip over it.” Plus, Feig added, “I didn’t like the idea of them being handed technology. I wanted to see it developed.” The fact that the characters develop the technology themselves is also one of the things that carries over from the first movie: Science is crucial to the film. “It was really important to us to make them scientists,” Feig said. “That’s what I love about the first one, the idea that Ivan, Dan [Aykroyd] and Harold [Ramis] had—people fighting the paranormal with science—just really resonated with us.” So in this movie, Erin, played by Kristen Wiig, is a particle physicist. Melissa McCarthy’s character, Abby, is an expert in the paranormal. Kate McKinnon plays Jillian, a nuclear engineer who creates all the technology. Finally, Leslie Jones’s Patty joins the team because she knows New York, and the film needed an “everyman,” just like Winston in the original. Feig also said he cast these actresses because their on-screen personas line up perfectly with the characters. “Kristin is this kind of vulnerable comedian, Melissa is a headstrong comedian, then you’ve got Kate who’s just the weirdo-nut, and Leslie is just a powerhouse that comes at you,” he said. As for the ghosts our heroes are fighting, Feig wanted them to look very particular and familiar, before things begin to go off the walls. “Being such a science nut, I wanted these ghosts to be what I always considered a ghost to be, which is dead people coming back.” he said. So the main ghosts of the movie are humanoid, but things will definitely change. Change has been at the heart of this new Ghostbusters from the beginning. Early on, a small but vocal group of people began complaining about the new team being all female. However, Feig said that’s not addressed in the movie. “The first movie worked, because it had four of the funniest people in it,” he said. “I just wanted the funniest people, and the funniest people I happen to know are these women. Ghostbusters is for everybody” And Feig sees this as the beginning of a new era of Ghostbusters. “I have such a love for this property and what I really wanted to do was bring it to a new generation. Give a new generation their own team,” he said. “This comes from such a pure place,” Feig continued. “This thing that [Reitman, Aykroyd and Ramis] created, this idea is such a great idea. It’s such an amazing franchise that had two amazing movies, but it could just keep going. There’s so many things you can do with it. It just seemed terrible to leave it in a box.” Well, no matter what happens next, that box is finally opened again. Article source
  20. For several years YIFY has been one of Hollywood's biggest arch-rivals and most-recognized pirate brands. Interestingly, it always remained a mystery what those four letters stand for. Now the veil has been lifted after a New Zealand court confirmed the name of the group's founder. In 2010 a fresh movie piracy brand began to conquer the Internet. Bypassing the so-called ‘Scene’, YIFY joined a new breed of release groups who publish their work directly to torrent sites. In fact, YIFY, which later rebranded to YTS, started its own torrent website featuring high quality releases of the latest movies. As the years went by the group amassed a huge following, and a year ago its website generated millions of pageviews per day. A true success story, but one that ended abruptly last October. Hollywood sources tracked down the founder of YIFY and filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit in New Zealand. This meant the end of YIFY and YTS, but surprisingly the case was never heard in court. Instead, both parties agreed to a private settlement outside of court, keeping the identity of one of YIFY’s key players out of the public eye. However, this didn’t last long. Last week a New Zealand court confirmed the identity of the YIFY founder to the local Sunday Star Times. The news outlet reported that the movie studios filed their lawsuit against Yiftach Swery, a 23-year-old app and website developer. Several years ago YIFY told TorrentFreak that the name was “just a random alias” but this explanation is hard to maintain now. While we have always doubted the randomness of the popular tag, Yiftach Swery leaves little room for speculation. Indeed, we confirmed with someone in the know that the YIF part is derived directly from the founder’s name. In theory, the same could be said for YTS but this stands for “YIFY Torrents Solutions,” our source says. It’s worth noting that Yiftach was not the only person behind YIFY. In fact, towards the end he was no longer actively involved in encoding and uploading movies. How many other people were involved in the group remains unknown. TorrentFreak did hear that other people connected to YIFY have been “approached” by the movie industry over the years, but Yiftach is the only one who signed a settlement deal. One thing is very clear though, the original YIFY team is not coming back. Instead, Yiftach and his former colleagues will probably focus on picking up their regular lives again. That said, the YIFY name lives on in the memories of million of pirates. While most of its shine has been lost, YIFY will certainly go down in history. Article source

  22. If Napster co-founder Sean Parker's plans come to fruition, the latest movies will be available for viewing from day one in the home via a set-top box. But despite support from big name directors, not everyone is happy. According to a 600 theater chain, Screening Room will only provide quick, quality content for torrent sites. Last week news broke that having dumped the recording industry on its head a decade-and-a-half ago, Napster founder Sean Parker is now turning his attentions to the world of cinema. Unlike his now infamous file-sharing service, this time Parker intends to do things by the book, licensing content from its creators and delivering it to the public. However, disruption is still a mainstay of the entrepreneur’s business model, with Screening Room planning to offer day-and-date movies to the masses in the comfort of their own homes. For a not unreasonable $150, Parker and his associates want to supply a set-top box with the ability to show brand new films for $50 per shot to be viewed once during a 48 hour period. It’s a proposal that has almost everyone excited but in a variety of different ways. With the studios considering their options and yet to officially weigh in with their verdict, big name names in the industry are being less cautious. Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Peter Jackson and J.J. Abrams have come out in support of the plan, verbally and in some cases financially too. But while momentum builds on the director level, opposition is mounting from the businesses that are most likely to be affected by the project. The Art House Convergence (AHC), a cinema group representing 600 theaters, has just published an open letter concerning Screening Room. AHC are clearly rattled by the proposition and the negative impact it could have on the cinema market. “The Art House Convergence, a specialty cinema organization representing 600 theaters and allied cinema exhibition businesses, strongly opposes Screening Room, the start-up backed by Napster co-founder Sean Parker and Prem Akkaraju,” the letter begins. “The proposed model is incongruous with the movie exhibition sector by devaluing the in-theater experience and enabling increased piracy. Furthermore, we seriously question the economics of the proposed revenue-sharing model.” It’s clear from AHC’s announcement that they see content shown in cinemas as more effectively guarded from potential pirates. Introduce that content into the privacy of the home environment and it will necessarily herald in a whole new world of piracy. “We strongly believe if the studios, distributors, and major chains adopt this model, we will see a wildfire spread of pirated content, and consequently, a decline in overall film profitability through the cannibalization of theatrical revenue,” AHC says. “The theatrical experience is unique and beneficial to maximizing profit for films. A theatrical release contributes to healthy ancillary revenue generation and thus cinema grosses must be protected from the potential erosion effect of piracy.” AHC’s argument develops with what it sees as an undermining of exhibitors’ investment in digital technology, technology that was somewhat forced upon them in the name of piracy prevention. “The exhibition community was required to subscribe to DCI-compliance in a very material way,” AHC writes. “Those exhibitors who were unable to make the transition were punished by a loss of product. The digital conversion had a substantial cost per theater, upwards of $100,000 per screen, all in the name of piracy eradication and lowering print, storage and delivery costs to benefit the distributors. How will Screening Room prevent piracy?” DCI Digital Cinema Specification – Piracy That question is yet to be answered by Screening Room but if the service is to ever get off the ground, notoriously hard-to-please studios will demand a very clear say in how content is protected throughout the entire process. While digital compliance is certainly not only for theaters, AHC believes that some adopters of Screening Room could simply go back to exploiting the analog hole. “If studios are concerned enough with projectionists and patrons videotaping a film in theaters that they provide security with night-vision goggles for premieres and opening weekends, how do they reason that an at-home viewer won’t set up a $40 HD camera and capture a near-pristine version of the film for immediate upload to torrent sites?” the chain asks. Of course, there’s very little Screening Room can do to stop a determined pirate from finding ways to copy their content, but it is entirely feasible for each movie screening to be embedded with watermarks similar to the ones already in place in theaters around the world. Tracing content back to an individual set-top box would then be somewhat straightforward but of course by then the damage would already be done. But while piracy is one of AHC’s biggest complaints, it all comes boils down to what they see as a huge undermining of their business model through the wiping out of the theatrical windowing system. “Our exhibition sector has always welcomed innovation, disruption and forward-thinking ideas, most especially onscreen through independent film; however, we do not see Screening Room as innovative or forward-thinking in our favor, rather we see it as inviting piracy and significantly decreasing the overall profitability of film releases,” the chain concludes.
