Odds & ends: “Red Shoes” moves to NWFF, “Spider-Man” in 3D, and more

News from all over today . . .
— Went to see the restored print of “The Red Shoes” last night at Seattle Art Museum and it was spectacular. What a joy to see this exquisite film looking fresh and new, with softly sparkling colors that took my breath away. (I have the Criterion DVD of this movie and thought that the restoration couldn’t look that much better, as the DVD looks quite good. I was wrong.) If you couldn’t make it last night, remember that the restored “Red Shoes” opens tomorrow for a week’s run at Northwest Film Forum. Go and be thrilled.
— Pencil in July 2, 2012, on your calendar: That’s the day the newly rebooted and re-cast “Spider-Man” movie will be in theaters. And, as Sony announced yesterday, all that webslinging will be in 3D. No word yet on who the new Spidey will be; I’d still put money on Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
— Speaking of 3-D, Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” (which I can’t wait to see; Helena Bonham Carter’s makeup alone makes it one of the more interesting films of the season) just might have a shortened theatrical run. The Hollywood Reporter writes that Disney has approached theater owners in attempts to negotiate a 13-week run rather than the usual 16, with the ultimate goal being to get the surely profitable DVD out sooner. It’ll open March 5; might not want to wait too long before getting tickets.
