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.

harry potter movie sequel

The Harry Potter books and film series may be over, but J.K. Rowling‘s Wizarding World continues to live on. There are the short stories and essays published on Pottermore. There is the upcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which explores this familiar universe in a different time and place. And then there is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, the ambitious stage play sequel to the original series currently dominating the London theater scene that Warner Bros. says won’t get a film adaptation anytime soon (but go ahead and ask them again in ten years).

So when someone asks film series star, Daniel Radcliffe, if he’d be willing to reprise his role as Harry Potter for a new movie, it’s all theoretical. But let’s face it – chances are strong you’re curious about what he says. It’s okay. You’re only human, and a Muggle at that.

A Monster Calls review

J.A. Bayona‘s adaptation of Patrick NessA Monster Calls is a five-hankie sobfest, a ruthlessly effective tearjerker even by cancer drama standards. The sniffles start with the premise. A boy (Lewis MacDougall) struggles with his mother’s terminal illness, and calls upon a giant tree monster for help. The monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) forces a deal upon the boy: he’ll tell three stories, after which the boy will have to reveal his own deepest, darkest secret.

Angela Lansbury in Mr Poppers Penguins

UPDATE: Entertainment Weekly has heard back from Angela Lansbury’s representatives, and the actress will not be appearing in season seven of Game of Thrones. Our original report of the rumor follows below.

Game of Thrones fans were none too pleased to learn that the next (and penultimate) season would return later than usual and run shorter than normal. On the bright side, though, it sure sounds like season seven will be worth the wait. Recently we heard Jim Broadbent was joining the next run of episodes for a “significant” role, and today a new rumor going around claims Angela Lansbury will pop up as well.  Read More »

Lego Ninjago short clip

Jackie Chan has shown off a lot of impressive moves and battled a lot of formidable foes over the course of his career. But in the first clip from The Master: A Lego Ninjago Short, his tiny plastic counterpart meets his match… in the form of an annoying little chicken voiced by Abbi Jacobson.

The short film, which premieres in front of Warner Animation Group’s Storks later this fall, looks plenty fun in its own right. But it also represents our best look yet at The Lego Ninjago Movie, the Lego Movie spinoff featuring Chan as a kung fu master who must lead his mentees against the evil warlord Garmadon. Justin Theroux narrates The Master, although you won’t hear him in this particular scene. Watch the Lego Ninjago short clip below.  Read More »
