Days of Future Past VFX

As Bryan Singer‘s X-Men: Days of Future Past hits digital home distribution and will soon be on Blu-ray and DVD, we’re getting a barrage of behind the scenes featurettes exploring the creation of the film. Fox assumes we’ve all seen the movie, and is now attempting to attract audiences with teasing glimpses of the techniques used to create the film. Know what? It’s working. Here’s a Days of Future Past VFX breakdown from Digital Domain, showing how some of Mystique’s transformations were created, and providing great detail on the development of the baseball stadium used in one big sequence.

In addition we’ve got few other Days of Future Past bits, including a deleted scene with Mystique, and a couple character-specific featurettes focused on Sunspot and Bishop. Read More »

By premiering Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Legend in IMAX and on Netflix on the same date, Netflix, IMAX, and The Weinstein Co. are disrupting the traditional theatrical release model. And not surprisingly, traditional theaters are none too happy about that.

Update: Variety reports the U.S.’ Carmike, Canada’s Cineplex, and Europe’s Cineworld have now joined Cinemark and Regal in refusing to show the movie.

Gotham season trailer

We’re into the second week of Gotham, so audiences are starting to get a good idea of what Bruno Heller and his cast and crew have planned for Batman’s home town. (Hint: it seems to be an uneasy combination of camp and very serious drama, and we’ll give it another couple weeks to see how that balance settles.) A new Gotham season trailer now teases what’s to come for the rest of the year. Here you’ll see the murderer Victor Zsasz, along with hints of a few other characters.  Read More »

Beauty and the Beast writer

Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast is getting a polish from a guy who should know a thing or two about bookish, attractive outsiders. Stephen Chbosky, the author/screenwriter/director behind YA classic The Perks of Being a Wallflower, has just come aboard to rewrite the live-action adaptation. Bill Condon is directing.

Interestingly, the hire pits Chbosky against his own Perks star Emma Watson, who’s attached to lead the competing Beauty project at Warner Bros. Unless she jumps ship for Chbosky, that is. Hit the jump for more about the new Beauty and the Beast writer.
