After a holiday break, Sam Mendes is back at work on the 24th James Bond film, Spectre. The film returns Daniel Craig, Naomie Harris, Ralph Fiennes, Rory Kinneear, and Ben Whishaw while adding Christoph Waltz, Andrew Scott, Dave Bautista, Monica Bellucci and Lea Seydoux to the cast. It opens November 6, so there’s a lot of work to do in the next few months.
Unfortunately, none of those cast members are in this new photo.
Instead, we get to once again see the film’s only officially revealed on-set star, the camera slate, which is now seen in a very evocative snow-covered locale. See the new Spectre set photo below. Read More »

We’re already familiar with the ins and outs of the Awesome Mix Vol. 1, thanks to our many repeat viewings of Guardians of the Galaxy. Now here’s the Awesome REmix Vol. 1 from music producer Mike Relm.
As with Godzilla and Iron Man, Relm took music, dialogue, and footage from Guardians of the Galaxy, chopped it up into little tiny pieces, and laid it back out into something fresh. The clangs and thuds of a fight scene turn into a beat; Rocket Raccoon’s “oh yeah” becomes a chorus of sorts. Watch the Mike Relm Guardians of the Galaxy remix after the jump. Read More »

For one reason or another, Jason Reitman is a polarizing figure among movie fans. Some really like his heartfelt, unique movies while others dismiss them as obvious. The same can be said about his live read series. Some enjoy reading about this fun, one-time-only event and others don’t see the point. No matter what side of that you fall on, you’re bound to like Reitman more after listening to this interview.
Reitman spoke on The Hats Off Show recently and the conversation went all over the map: to great sequels, traveling back in time, underrated actors, Reitman’s movies and an argument over the better Schwarzenegger film: Kindergarden Cop or Twins. There was also a healthy amount of talk about sports movies. Reitman mentions he’d be interested in doing one, especially if it had something to do with the untapped world of being a referee. Below, listen to the full Jason Reitman sports interview. Read More »
The world lost one of its favorite fathers today. Edward Herrmann, the long-time character actor best known for his role as Richard Gilmore on the Gilmore Girls, lost a battle with brain cancer Wednesday at the age of 71.
To a generation of fans, Herrmann was the loving, astute patriarch on the hit TV show but his career spanned much wider than that. On TV he appeared regularly on The Good Wife, St. Elsewhere, The Practice, and Oz. In movies, he’s probably best known for his pivotal role in The Lost Boys, but he appeared in Nixon, The Aviator, Richie Rich, Intolerable Cruelty, Annie, The Great Gatsby, The Purple Rose of Cairo and many others. He worked with the best of the best.
Whenever Herrmann appeared on screen, he quickly and quietly lent a commanding presence to his characters. His physical stature and ability to instantly generate sympathy served him well on many fronts. It’s a sad day. [TMZ]
When done correctly, you never even think of the power of digital effects. You sit down, you watch a movie, and you let the story wash over you. You never once think about the crazy amount of work that went into it. When you finally do step back and look at the incredible work and detail put into every single frame of every movie you watch, it’s staggering.
Part of the reason we can eventually appreciate the work of digital effects are videos like the one below. It’s a short sizzle reel of just some of Industrial Light and Magic‘s (ILM) work on The Russo Brothers’ Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Check out the Captain America Winter Soldier visual effects video below. Read More »

Fans can debate for hours on end whether or not Spider-man will crossover with The Avengers, X-Men with the Fantastic Four or any number of other combinations.
