Now that the film about the rap group N.W.A, which will be called Straight Outta Compton after the band’s 1988 album, is really moving forward, producers have had to actually find people to play all the group’s principals. Not long ago we heard that Ice Cube was pushing forward his own son to play the key role of Ice Cube. And with that set, choices have also been made with respect to actors who will play Dr. Dre and Eazy-E. Read More »

We get to see a lot of computer generated special effects breakdowns these days, but nothing like this. Today I came across a video showing the before and after shots from Steven Spielberg‘s Jurassic Park. While the film is known as one of the first blockbuster films to extensively employ computer generated effects, there are actually only 15 minutes of dinosaurs in the film: 9 minutes of which are Stan Winston’s animatronics, and only 6 minutes of ILM’s computer animated versions. But those six minutes are quite impressive for a film released over 20 years ago (1993). After the jump you can watch a six minute video which breaks down the Jurassic Park special effects showing how the computer generated dinosaurs were added to shots in post production.

Luke Evans is one of those actors who constantly seems to be on the verge of breaking out, without quite getting there. He’s appeared in lots of high-profile projects (Clash of the Titans, The Three Musketeers, Immortals, The Raven) and even a couple of pretty good high-profile projects (The Hobbit, Fast & Furious 6), without achieving household name status.
But he continues to try, and his next stab at superstardom will be this fall’s Dracula Untold. Directed by Gary Shore, Dracula Untold chronicles the origin story of the world’s most iconic vampire. As it turns out, he wasn’t always evil incarnate. In fact, the new Dracula Untold poster and image, released today, have a strong Dark Knight vibe to them. Get your first look at Dracula Untold after the jump.

Dumb and Dumber To is actually happening. It’s incredibly hard to believe but it’s true. Twenty years after the release of the comedy smash by the Farrelly Brothers, Jeff Daniels and Jim Carrey are reprising their roles to continue the story of numbskulls Harry and Lloyd. Set in real time after the events of the first film, the duo set off to find Harry’s daughter. In the process, of course, they do lots of really dumb stuff.
The first trailer is out and it almost feels like a Saturday Night Live skit. This is actually real? Yes, it is, and it’ll hit theaters November 14. Below, watch the first Dumb and Dumber To trailer and see some new photos too. Read More »

Ice Cube is contributing to the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton as a producer, but at 44 he’s obviously too old to play a teenaged version of himself. So director F. Gary Gray has cast the next best thing: Ice Cube’s son, O’Shea Jackson Jr.
The young star is the first actor announced for the film, with the other main cast members expected to be announced in the near future. Get the latest details on the project after the jump.
