52 Movie and Film Innovations to Watch

— November 2, 2008 — Pop Culture
Who doesn’t like movies? They’re great entertainment and spawn new products. Movies are sometimes eagerly anticipated as shown by trailers. Their demise is premature as several innovations have been introduced to deliver movies in novel ways via watches, cell phones, legal downloads and with 3-D technology.

Some people even enjoy making movies, perhaps from children’s drawings or using the movie trailer format as a clever birth announcement. Iconic movies are also ripe for spoofing. Movie subjects range from celebrity pets like the Beverly Hills Chihuahua to best selling books like Harry Potter. The older generation are not to be forgotten for there are boomer stars and even one very senior adult movie star.

So get the popcorn ready and watch this cluster of movie and film innovations!
