Star Wars cantina scene rough cut

The rough cut of the Star Wars cantina scene is a thing that crops up online every once in a while, thanks to it having been a part of the Star Wars: Behind the Magic CD-ROM release way back in 1998. This cut of the cantina scene features rough early audio and no music, but some of the dialogue is different, the performances are often very different, and there’s a good bit of material that didn’t make the final cut. So if you haven’t seen the Star Wars cantina scene rough cut, watch below. Read More »

Escape From New York Wishlist

I think I’ve been guardedly positive about the Escape From New York remake in the past, but today I’m not feeling so charitable. This shouldn’t be a thing. But it might still be a thing, and a new report lists three names that top the Escape From New York wishlist for stars. Sitting right at the top is Charlie Hunnam, of Sons of Anarchy and Pacific Rim.

Cosmic Motors movie

Michael Bay has made a career of making cars look cool on screen, and he’s hoping to continue that trend. He’s on board to produce a film for Warner Bros. called Cosmic Motors, based on a book of futuristic designs by Daniel Simon.

Simon, who has been a designer, for vehicles in particular, on films like Prometheus, Oblivion, Tron Legacy and Captain America: The First Avenger, released the book in 2007. In it, he creates a far away sci-fi universe through vehicles. Each chapter tells a story of the design and purpose of a futuristic, awesome looking car/hovercraft/motorcycle. We’ve got a gallery of examples below.

Now, Bay and Warner Bros. have hired writer Kyle Ward to adapt the book into a screenplay. Read more about the Cosmic Motors movie, and the book below including a bunch of new photos. Read More »

everything wrong with Armageddon

The guys at CinemaSins have returned with a new Everything Wrong With… video essay. This time the video takes a look at Michael Bay‘s 1998 feature film Armageddon. Some people seem to hate these videos, but it seems like few can resist from clicking through and hitting the play button. I’m sure we’ll see fewer complaints in the comments this time, with a 14-minute video making fun of a Michael Bay movie.

That said, I love so much about this movie, and Bay’s earlier efforts when he had a producer that was powerful enough to say “no” every once in a while. Watch Everything Wrong With Armageddon, embedded after the jump.
