(Source: AintItCool) Hey folks, Harry here… Got an email from a panicky ABking pointing to this story over at Marketsaw regarding an alleged 8 Trailers that Fox has cut for AVATAR that were then all rejected by James Cameron due to their inherent lameness. Plus rumors on ShoWest, and even some particularly off-putting rumor about Spielberg & Jackson on TINTIN (also not true btw). Now – shortly after the email from ABking – I began getting a flood of similar emails from some of you other readers also wanting me to address this story.

Soho-based LipSync Post has been a reputation in post production, visual effects and digital intermediates over the 21 years it’s been in business. Some of the high-profile films that LipSync has worked on in recent years includes The Bourne Ultimatum,Hellboy II, and 28 Weeks Later.

The company has more recently moved decisively into production, investing in more than 14 films over the past two years, including up-coming British indie feature How to Lose Friends and Alienate People, starring SimonPegg, Kirsten Dunst and Jeff Bridges. Lip Sync also recently wrapped the DI and visual effects shots for The Secret of Moonacre, Gabor Csupo’s follow-up film to Bridge to Terabithia.

Patton Oswalt is a comedian who is able to combine nerd/geek topics with a withering righteous indignation. Recently on  his MySpace page he unleashed following diatribe directed at people complaining about the faithfulness of Zack Snyder’s Watchmen adaptation (this is a partial excerpt, please visit his MySpace page for the full text):

“You’re all going to go see it, you resentful nerd mafiosi. And you’ll walk in rolling your eyes and you’ll walk out whistling sadly through your teeth because the fuel of the Nerd Mafia is disappointment and exclusion.

Tell you what — before you go and see THE WATCHMEN, plunk down and watch CATWOMAN, GHOST RIDER and DAREDEVIL. And use those seven hours (and don’t pretend like you don’t have seven free hours in your day) to get out all of your disgust and the-world-owes-me-my-daydreams-made-real attitude you strut around with.

DreamWorks’ big-budget bet, “Monsters vs. Aliens,” has faced one hurdle after another — including a whipping from the blogosphere over its extravagant Superbowl ad in January. But now comes the worst news yet: Fewer than half of the theaters that were supposed to be ready for digital 3D projection will be ready by the movie’s release on March 27.

DreamWorks announced a year ago that it expected 5,000 theaters to be 3D-ready for a wide 3D opening of “Monsters.” But the economic recession has further delayed the already-long-delayed conversion of movie theaters to digital projection.
