C-3PO Episode 7 Suit

We know that Andy Serkis‘ performance capture studio The Imaginarium is heavily involved in JJ AbramsStar Wars Episode VII, but we never considered to ask if classic characters like C-3PO would be computer animated or played by a man-in-suit.  Well, apparently when JJ Abrams first called Anthony Daniels, he asked the British actor to voice our favorite protocol droid in the new series. As you know, Daniels not only voiced the character but played the droid on screen  in a tightly created armored costume in the original trilogy, although the character was heavily CG animated in the prequels. So is C-3PO a performance capture computer animated creation in Episode 7? Find out the full story of the new C-3po Episode 7 suit, after the jump.

netflix Judd Apatow

Before films like The 40-Year-Old Virgin made him the new king of big-screen comedy, Judd Apatow was best known for small-screen cult faves like Freaks and Geeks and Undeclared. He took a step back into TV a couple of years ago with Lena Dunham’s Girls, and now he’s taking another with Love.

The new comedy already has a two-season commitment from Netflix, and some great pedigree on its side. Apatow created the show with Girls writer Lesley Arfin, and Gillian Jacobs and Paul Rust are set to play the leads. Hit the jump for all the details on the Netflix Judd Apatow show.

Ed Helms’ ‘Vacation’ Sequel Starts Shooting

Vacation sequel

“No, no, no NO NO NO NOOOOOOOO” is how our own Peter Sciretta reacted when news of a Vacation sequel first hit /Film five years ago. Despite his objections, though, New Line pressed on, and as of today the Vacation sequel / reboot / spin-off thing has finally started shooting.

Ed Helms plays Rusty Griswold, now all grown up with a family of his own. But don’t worry — Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo will still reprise their roles as his parents, Clark and Ellen Griswold. Christina Applegate, Chris Hemsworth, and Charlie Day also star. Get all the Vacation sequel details after the jump. Read More »

Venom

As great a character as Spider-Man is, his villains are often just as interesting. That’s one of the many reasons Sony is moving ahead with a Sinister Six film before they get back to The Amazing Spider-Man 3. They’re also moving forward with a solo film for one of Spidey’s most popular villains, Venom. That one will be directed by Alex Kurtzman, but we don’t know much about it other than that it is happening.

In a new interview, the director gave an updating saying Ed Solomon will start writing the script soon, and that choosing which character would be under the suit in the film hasn’t been an easy decision. Read the Alex Kurtzman Venom quotes below. Read More »

Powers

After so, so many years of trying, Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming‘s Powers is finally coming to the screen this December thanks to Sony’s PlayStation Network. Sharlto Copley and Susan Heyward lead the cast as two cops who specialize in cases involving “Powers,” i.e., people with superpowers.

Shooting on the sci-fi cop drama began about a month ago, and today the first pic of Copley and Heyward in character has finally been released. Hit the jump for your Powers first look.

Shaun of the Dead score

The films of Edgar Wright are known for their eclectic musical choices, but it’s the pop song choices that are typically revered. The scores are highly underrated, to the extent the score for Wright’s first film, Shaun of the Dead, has never been available anywhere in any format.

That changes this weekend at MondoCon in Austin, TX. Mondo will release the Shaun of the Dead score by Daniel Mudford & Pete Woodhead on vinyl as part of a carnival style, record-tossing booth. There are two editions, too, both with cover art by Jock.

But that’s not all. Previously announced, Mondo will release LPs of Nathan Johnson‘s score to Rian Johnson‘s Looper and Alex North‘s abandoned score for 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both have art by Jay Shaw.

Below, check out looks of all the LPs and read more information about them. Read More »
