Steven Spielberg arcades in movies

In honor of the news that Steven Spielberg will be directing a big screen adaptation of Ready Player One, here is our September 2014 posting about Spielberg’s love for video games and specifically his 1980’s arcade game collection.

An Arcades in Movies supercut has been posted online chronicling arcade games in cinema from the year 1975 to 1994. And to add something extra, I’ve included a gallery of photos of a young Steven Spielberg and his arcade collection from the 1980’s as well as details on a forward the young filmmaker wrote in a book on arcade video games. Check out the Steven Spielberg arcade game collection photos and more, after the jump.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator Genisys interview

In July of last year, I visited the set of Terminator: Genisys. You can hear what I learned while on set here. While on set, we talked to the cast and crew of the new film. Over the next few days we’ll be running transcripts of these on set interviews. Today we begin with Arnold Schwarzenegger, who reprises his role as a T-800. But this is a T-800 like we’ve never seen before, in this new film set within a divergent timeline. Read the full Arnold Schwarzenegger Terminator Genisys interview after the jump.

Terminator Genisys set visit

On July 11th 2014, I traveled to New Orleans to visit the set of Terminator Genisys, the fifth installment of the Terminator film franchise. My visit to the set of McG‘s Terminator Salvation four years prior couldn’t have been more different than my experience on the latest installment.

Salvation director McG had talked up Jonathan Nolan’s script (right on the heels of The Dark Knight‘s release). He showed us a ton of practical creations designed by Stan Winston’s Legacy Effects; we explored gritty lived in sets made out of dilapidated buildings in Albuquerque, saw a room of cool concept art, and we watched Christian Bale film a “should have been” iconic scene. But of course, it wasn’t a remembered moment — because the film was widely panned by critics and fans alike.

On the other hand, my visit to the Terminator Genisys set could not have been more the opposite: the sound stages were lined wall to wall with giant green screens, we saw no endoskeletons, and we saw no animatronic puppets. Instead we watched Arnold Schwarzenegger walk across the set for a “walk and talk” scene late in the film. Instead of a full on-assault to convince us this was going to be cool, we were met with a low-key, more confident and assured presentation from everyone involved.

We know how Terminator Salvation turned out; will this be any different? I’ll be completely honest, I was way more impressed with what I saw on the set of Terminator Salvation, but that might be because the crew of Terminator Genisys seemed much more guarded — their plan not only involved this film, but a trilogy of movies. Despite being very cagey with details, all of the people we talked to seemed much more confident this time around. What I can tell you is what I learned while on set. Read out Terminator Genisys set visit after the jump.

Star Wars Tie Fighter - Star Wars anime fan film

Animator Paul Johnson (youtube user name OtaKing77077) spent four years worth of weekends animating this incredible Star Wars anime fan film Star Wars: TIE Fighter. Paul explains:

What if there was an Empire-focussed short Star Wars animation, drawn with the crazy detail and shading of classic 80s anime that’s all but vanished from Japan nowadays? Well, I tried my best. Apologies in advance for not living up to Venus Wars standards. Drawn and animated by yours truly over 4 years’ worth of weekends, with music by the living guitar solo Zak Rahman and sound design by up and coming audio technician Joseph Leyva. Fans of Lucasarts’ seminal 1994 TIE Fighter game may notice a few familiar sights and sounds. That “incoming missile” noise gives me horrible flashbacks to this day…

The resulting fan film is beautiful and makes me wish Disney had opted for a more stylized look for Star Wars Rebels. (No complaints, I’m sure we’ll have years of animated Star Wars television shows to look forward to.) Watch Paul Johnson’s seven-minute Star Wars anime short film Star Wars: TIE Fighter embedded after the jump.

Penn Jillette Director's Cut clapboard
Anyone who has been reading this site for any length of time probably knows that I’m a magic geek and two of my idols are the magic duo of Penn & Teller. Not only do they have a magic career spanning 40 years, but their many television shows and movies are equally impressive. So I’m excited to introduce this exclusive short guest post from Penn Jillette himself, presenting a behind the scenes video from his upcoming film Director’s Cut.

The film itself looks really interesting, the kind of story that could only come out of the democratic crowdsourcing process. The supercut-like clip gives you a fast-paced look at the making of the movie, but from the perspective of the clapboard that gets clapped before every single take of the film. Through this perspective, we get to see the film’s shooting locations, we even get a glimpse of Penn in costume as well as the other actors/characters in the film. Read Penn’s guest blog and watch the Director’s Cut clapboard video embedded after the jump.
