Last week, psychology researchers at the University of Utah published a study (in the online journal PLOS ONE) that aimed to measure the difference in emotional responses to watching a movie in 3-D as opposed to 2-D. The study found that there was no significant difference between the two formats — test subjects had the same level of emotional response whether they saw a scene in 3-D or in 2-D. As someone who sees a lot...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Sony has a woman-led movie set in the world of Spider-Man in the works, though not until 2017, according to a Deadline story last month. Marvel Studio President Kevin Feige, in an August interview with Comic Book Resources, did not commit to when a female superhero would lead one of its movies.

The multilingual Danish-American actor has performed in everything from English to Elvish. Now he tackles French — as well the power of silence — in Venice Film Festival entry “Far From Men,” a stark story about two men, a schoolteacher and a murderer, caught up in Algeria’s war for independence. Mortensen also learned some Arabic for the film by French director David Oelhoffen.

Filmmakers Alex and Stephen Kendrick seem to have the formula down — grossing nearly $80 million on four films made for less than $4 million combined. Only thing is the Kendrick brothers work far from Hollywood and, outside the world of Christian-themed cinema, many have never heard of their films. That could change.

Thankfully, that movie, Steve James’ documentary “Life Itself,” is a good one — a movie Roger would have enjoyed watching, and one in which he would have been proud to be participating.
