’12 Monkeys’ Trailer: Everybody Is Already Dead

12 monkeys TV trailer

Earlier this week at the Syfy TCA panel, co-exec producer Terry Matalas said that the channel’s new series adaptation of 12 Monkeys is a “complete reimagining” of the original film. “We didn’t want to redo the movie and so we changed everything from the top down.” The movie in question, of course, is Terry Gilliam’s 1995 time-travel thriller in which a convict (Bruce Willis) is sent into the past in an attempt to find information about a virus that later wipes out most of humanity. Now there’s a 12 Monkeys TV trailer, and Syfy’s version sure looks a lot like a remake.

Boba Fett lives

Boba Fett lives. I mean, you knew that. Despite falling into the Sarlacc pit during Return of the Jedi he managed to escape, and later showed up all over the place in the Star Wars expanded universe. He even fell into the Sarlacc again, and after getting out was best man at the wedding of the bounty hunter Dengar. Seriously.

But nothing in Star Wars is canon until it ends up in a movie, The Clone Wars (or Rebels) TV show, or comes out of the mouth of George Lucas. Today, during a Reddit AMA, Star Wars historian J.W. Rinzler said he’s had conversations with Lucas where the Star Wars creator confirmed that Fett is alive. Get that quote, and some other highlights from Rinzler’s talk below. Read More »

Duncan Jones Mute

Even as he puts the finishing touches on Warcraft, Duncan Jones is already looking ahead to his next project. And though Warcraft represented a step forward for him in some ways (it’s certainly his biggest film in terms of budget) it seems he’s eager to go back to a project he’s been working on for some time already.

Jones has hinted that he wants to take another crack at Mute, a Blade Runner-esque sci-fi project set in Berlin. If that sounds vaguely familiar, that may be because he’s been talking about it on and off for years — since before Moon was even released, in fact. Hit the jump to read Jones’s comments and learn more about his potential next film.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Concept Art

Updated: We have added more concept art at the end of this post from July 14th 2014.

I love looking at concept art. Often the art created to inspire the movies is more incredible than the films themselves (for example, look at some of the beautiful concept art created for the Star Wars prequels). The Aaron Sims Company were hired to create some concept art for Matt ReevesDawn of the Planet of the Apes, and have put some of their work online for all to admire.

ASC worked closely with Weta on both films to design all of the main and ancillary ape characters from the ground up. In the Rise of the Planet of the Apes, they sculpted a bust for Caesar to ensure a hyper-realistic feel. In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, ASC worked on aging the apes and creating the apes’ ceremonial look, which includes face paint and other ornamentation taken from nature.

While the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes concept art features some shots of the Apes living and hunting in the wild, I was more taken by the portrait work focusing on the faces of Koba, Caesar, Cornelia, and Maurice. One big revelation is that the Apes almost wore primitive clothing. Check out the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes concept art after the jump.

dawn of the planet of the apes

Weeks before the release of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, director Matt Reeves decided to change the ending. They had shot a completely different alternate ending sequence, but he wanted to go for something different. Find out what happened in the deleted Dawn of the Planet of the Apes ending, and why it was changed only weeks before release, after the jump.

guardians of the galaxy

In filmmaking, the score is almost always one of the last pieces of the puzzle. By the time a composer completes and records their score, the movie is almost always in the can. It just needs a tweak here or there before it’s done. That’s the usual order of things. For James Gunn‘s Guardians of the Galaxy though, things moved in a different order.

Gunn worked with composer Tyler Bates (300, Watchmen, Super) very early in the process so the actors could listen to the film’s eventual score during the creation of the movie’s most emotional moments and action scenes. The hope was hearing the film’s score so early in the process would let them better understand the film’s tone. Read the full quote below. Read More »

jurassic_world_logo-better

Even though the dinosaurs might eat you, Jurassic Park was always a place people wanted to visit. In Jurassic World, that’s exactly what happens. The 2015 release surmises that a fully functioning and safe dinosaur theme park has finally been opened for business…and people are bored of it. An attempt to satisfy that boredom with something new and exciting sets off the a frightening new chain of events.

A working theme park means many things. Merchandise, hotels, vacations and helpful brochures handed out at the gate to help people maneuver through the attractions. A fan has got their hands on the Jurassic World brochure. It not only gives some idea of what’s in the park, it probably hints at what’s going to go wrong there, too, come June 12, 2015. Finally, it teases a possible cameo by a late night TV host.  Read More »
