Bending The Light
Whenever film buffs hear the words "Michael Apted" and "documentary" together, they think of his groundbreaking "Up" series, where he has revisited the same group of people every seven years for the past fifty years now. The bad news is that "56 Up" was only two years ago, so we still have to wait five years for "63 Up." The good news is that you can watch the trailer for Apted’s new documentary "Bending The Light" right now.

Consider it a shock then, because 48 years after “7 Up” first aired on television, a new installment checking in on its diverse group of subjects is set to air this month.

It’s hard to tell if a filmmaker is in 'Director Jail' or if he just doesn’t feel like working. After the critical and commercial misfire “Lucky You,” Curtis Hanson (“L.A. Confidential,” “Wonder Boys,” “8 Mile”) didn’t have much going on. Then 2011 came around, and he made the well-received HBO Wall Street docudrama “Too Big To Fail,” and began filming, only a few weeks ago, the Gerard Butler surfer movie, “Of Men and Mavericks.”
