The 404 at CES 2013: Where we pay tribute to Danny DeVito Video
We're back from CES and giving you an inside look at the three live shows from the CNET stage last week, including Danny DeVito, Felicia Day, and our visit to Insert Coin(s).
At the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Intel CEO Otellini chats with actors Danny DeVito and Morgan Freeman and others about the company's move beyond chips.
Brian Tong says it looks like the Danny DeVito of MP3 players...until you see the side view, that is.
ZDNet's Patrick Houston talks with Good Technology CEO Danny Shader about the company's plans to compete with Research In Motion in the enterprise market for mobile computing technology.
"On a Clear Day" is an inspirational drama with humor, about forgiveness and fortitude, from an exciting new voice in filmmaking. Filmed on location in Glasgow, the Isle of Man and Dover, the film centers on Frank Redmond (Peter Mullan). After decades of laboring as a Glasgow shipbuilder, this no-nonsense 55-year-old working-class man suddenly finds himself laid off. For the first time in his life, Frank is without a job or a sense of direction, and is too proud to ask for guidance. His best mates ? rascally Danny (Billy Boyd), timid Norman (Ron Cook) and cynical Eddie (Sean McGinley) ? are there for him, but Frank still feels desperately alone. An offhand remark from Danny inspires Frank to challenge himself. Already contemplating the state of his relationships with loving wife Joan (two-time Academy Award nominee Brenda Blethyn) and all-but-estranged son Rob (Jamie Sives), Frank is determined to shore up his own self-confidence. He will attempt the near impossible ? swimming the English Channel. As Frank plunges headlong into his new daily life, his astonished friends are swept along with him. Prodded by stalwart fish-and-chips shop owner Chan (Benedict Wong), the men support Frank, train him ? and keep their goal secret from his wife and son. Frank is unable to confide in those closest to him, but as the big day and moment of truth draw near, there is a sea change. Frank's family confronts him, and he realizes that he must repair his strained family ties. As Frank and those closest to him discover ? or re-discover ? reserves of love and compassion, he realizes that he is also swimming from one part of his life to another.
Set in the 1880's, this epic story pits three brothers against each other in the Australian outback. Directed by John Hillcoat from a screenplay by Nick Cave, the film stars Guy Pearce, Ray Winstone, Danny Huston, John Hurt, David Wenham, and Emily Watson.
A back stage pass into the world of Peter Jackson and the art of filmmaking. You can learn more from these detailed daily accounts behind-the-scenes of Peter Jackson's "King Kong" than some film schools can teach. This has got everything, including information on all aspects of filmmaking from location logistics to sound recording to costume design, even the journey of a roll of film. Of course there's also time spent with the director himself and the stars of the movie. Completely comprehensive and thoroughly entertaining.
Greetings from sunny Las Vegas! It's sunny, but not hot at all, which is awesome. Today's CES show was a nice dry run, but tomorrow is when the real fun starts. So make sure to stop by the CNET stage at 5pm pacific time to catch us live! Did we mention there will be giveaways?
In the great cinematic tradition of "Road Trip" and "Dude, Where's My Car?" comes "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle," which follows two likeable underdogs who set out on a Friday night quest to satisfy their craving for White Castle hamburgers and end up on an epic journey of deep thoughts, deeper inhaling and a wild road trip as un-PC as it gets. John Cho ("American Pie" 1 & 2) and Kal Penn ("Malibu's Most Wanted") take on the title roles in the film directed by Danny Leiner ("Dude, Where's My Car?") written by Hayden Schlossberg & Jonathan Hurwitz.
Tim Allen transforms from family dad to family dog and back again in this fresh update of the Disney comedy classic, "The Shaggy Dog." It all begins when a workaholic Deputy D.A. Dave Douglas (Tim Allen) takes on a case involving an animal laboratory - one that will take him away yet again from his wife (Kristin Davis) and kids (Zena Grey and Spencer Breslin), who already yearn for his all-too-distracted attention. But when Dave is accidentally infected with a top-secret, genetic mutation serum, everything he thought he knew about being himself and his family changes. Yet with his newly perked-up ears, and his front-row seat on the household carpet, Dave is able to gain a whole new perspective into his family's secrets and dreams. Now, he wants nothing more than to stop fetching and return to fathering - only first he'll have to stop the evil forces behind the serum...in an adventure that will bring the whole family together. The film also stars Robert Downey, Jr., Danny Glover, and Philip Baker Hall.
