Jumanji Photo

At the beginning of the month, Dwayne Johnson offered us a hint as to what we can expect him to be doing in Sony Pictures new take on Jumanjiby way of some concept art. The movie isn’t a reboot, but rather a continuation of the events that happened in the first film from 1995, complete with some kind of tribute to Robin Williams planned. Now the first photo from the set has been released, and it’s clear this will be much different from the original Jumanji adaptation.

game of thrones spin-off

Update: This article has been updated with quotes from A Song of Ice and Fire creator and author George R.R. Martin. The short version: don’t get your hopes up. Yet.

Game of Thrones season 6 was a monster at the at the 2016 Emmy Awards, winning Best Drama Series, Directing for a Drama Series, and Writing for a Drama Series. Toss in the various technical awards the show also snagged and you’re looking at a massively popular, critically acclaimed series that has now won a record 38 primetime Emmys. So yeah, of course HBO wants to remain in the Westeros business for as long as possible.

However, we probably shouldn’t expect series creators and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss to stick around beyond the current iteration of the series, which is set to conclude with two shortened final seasons. There could be a Game of Thrones spin-off yet, but it would have to be under the watchful eye of someone else.

death note tone

Now that he’s successfully resurrected the Blair Witch franchise, filmmaker Adam Wingard is preparing to tackle another beloved genre property. His next movie is Death Note, a live-action adaptation of the hit manga series (and subsequent anime adaptation). But according to Wingard, this one will be less Blair Witch than The Guest, at least in terms of tone.

Speaking about his upcoming project in an interview, Wingard teased a return to “something kind of weird” for Death Note, promising nudity, swearing, and “a ton of violence.”  Read More »

Amy Adams in NOCTURNAL ANIMALS teaser trailer

The fall festivals have yielded a bounty of excellent films, and one of the most talked-about right now is Nocturnal Animals. The second feature from fashion designer turned filmmaker Tom Ford stars Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal in an unusual, engaging, and drop-dead gorgeous tale of love and revenge.

Nocturnal Animals is actually two narratives braided together. In one, Susan (Adams) receives a manuscript for a novel by her ex-husband Edward. The two have long been estranged following an unforgivable betrayal on her part, but the book has her reflecting upon their history together. The other is the story laid out in Edward’s book, following a father, Tony (Gyllenhaal), whose family is brutally assaulted on a deserted road one night.

Game of Thrones Season 6 VFX Reel

I’m a sucker for visual effects breakdown reels in general, but I’m really a sucker for Game of Thrones visual effects breakdown reels because they showcase just how much of HBO’s fantasy drama is quietly enhanced by intelligent, often invisible special effects. Sure, everyone knows those dragons are CGI, but your eyes don’t always catch the numerous set extensions. You probably don’t even realize that the sky has been replaced and the lightning digitally modified in many scenes.

And as one VFX reel reveals, a great deal of the violence is brought to life through some surprisingly effective trickery, combining digital and practical elements in a seamless fashion.

NOCTURNAL ANIMALS teaser

The first wave of reviews for Tom Ford‘s Nocturnal Animals are mostly positive. The critics who aren’t particularly taken with Ford’s romantic crime thriller describe it as a hollow piece of work. Ford’s moving debut A Single Man received similar criticisms from its few detractors, so it sounds like we should expect a similar response to his latest film, although it looks and sounds like a completely different movie.

Below, watch the Nocturnal Animals teaser for the trailer.
