Post-production is frequently a total mystery to fans. Once is film is finished, sometimes a studio will release concept art or set photos showing us pre-production. We see the actual production on the screen and in lots of behind the scenes featurettes. But once filming is done, you’d think the movie was magically willed into existence with special effects, music and sound, all perfectly timed to specially selected shots.
Of course, that’s not the case. Post-production frequently takes much longer than either of the other two thirds of production, and is really where the film is found. You just don’t see the process because it all takes place behind closed doors. So it’s a rare treat anytime we get a glimpse at the post-production process on any movie. It’s especially exciting when we get the see how a big name filmmaker does it.
Which leads us to this awesome new video called “Transformers 4: The Final Touches.” In it, we see Michael Bay himself working with his editing team on the finishing touches of Transformers: Age of Extinction all the way up through the film’s premiere. Check out the Michael Bay Transformers 4 editing video below. Read More »

Just hours after I called Mad Max: Fury Road my most anticipated film of 2015 (other staff members, such as Germain, have a different film in their top ranks) the new trailer dropped, and melted the face off the internet. This trailer is total visual overload, with very little indication of the story to come. In fact, from what we know of Fury Road, that isn’t even a misrepresentation of the film. Like The Road Warrior, this is said to be primarily an action-heavy chase film, without much dialogue at all.
Still, there are some significant clues to take out of this new trailer. Below we’ve got dozens of Mad Max Fury Road photos from the new footage, and a lot of info about what’s to come in the film. Let’s over-analyze the trailer after the break. Read More »
I just listed Mad Max: Fury Road as my #1 most anticipated movie of 2015, and right on the heels of that list we’ve got a new trailer for the film. Watching this, my primary question is: How the hell does this movie even exist? This looks like pure, wonderful insanity, and like nothing we’d expect from the modern studio system. This seems to be a sequel that may barely be a sequel in modern terms; an orgy of practical effects and automotive destruction; and if some of those quick insert shots are to be believed, a dose of pure weirdness. Check out the new Mad Max Fury Road trailer below.

If you’re like us and have been obsessively thinking about Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the past two years, give yourself a pat on the back. According to Disney CEO Bob Iger, that incredible level of interest was a major factor in the recent release of the Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer. Originally, they weren’t going to release something this early, but felt that the fans had demanded it.
Iger talked about that, as well as J.J. Abrams‘ commitment to practical effects and the film’s gargantuan expectations and importance, in a new interview. Below, read about what the Disney CEO said about the Star Wars Force Awakens trailer release and more. Read More »
Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm and Star Wars fans have been clamoring for a bigger Galactic and Rebel presence in the Disney theme parks. We’ve posted many rumors about a new Star Wars land being planned for Disneyland in Anaheim — at one point they were even testing out an idea for a third park which would’ve combined Star Wars and Marvel, but word has it didn’t test well with females. The latest rumor is that a Star Wars themed land will replace Disneyland’s Toon Town with construction beginning in 2016.
Today we learn a bit more about what the future of Star Wars holds in Disney Parks with a confirmation that any Star Wars theme park rides and attractions will be based on the new films, and not the older original (boo) and prequel (yay) trilogies.

Sony’s first two Jump Street movies were a cinematic comedy reboot of a TV drama popular in the ’80s and ‘90s. The next Jump Street pic will be that, too, of course, but it might also be a revival of a sci-fi film series dating back to 1997.
The studio is reportedly considering making 23 Jump Street (or whatever it winds up being called) a Men in Black crossover. Maybe the space-set 2121 Jump Street wasn’t such a farfetched idea after all. Hit the jump for more on the potential Jump Street Men in Black crossover. Read More »
Were you too scared to click on the red-band Hot Tub Time Machine 2 trailer from July? Well, a green band trailer is now here and you can finally see what’s in store for the good friends who find a time machine.
This time around, the characters played by Craig Robinson, Clark Duke and Rob Corddry misuse their amazing toy and decide to go back into the past to fix the problems they create. They mistakenly end up in the future, though, alongside the son of the character played by John Cusack in the first film (Cusack isn’t back here), played by Adam Scott. Now they have to worry not only about the past, but the present, which is also the past in the future. Then it gets even crazier than that.
Hot Tub Time Machine 2 opens February 20 and you can watch the new trailer and see the new poster below. Read More »

Major spoilers for The Dark Knight Rises throughout
You’ve got to give it to Christopher Nolan. When I saw The Dark Knight Rises, I was pretty confident I knew what happened at the end of the movie. Bruce Wayne fakes his death, fulfills Alfred’s dream of seeing him in Italy, and he passes the mantle of Batman – a symbol – to John Blake. Say what you want about the rest of the movie (and we have) but I still think that ending is fantastic. By far the best thing about the movie.
But like I said, you’ve got to give it to Christopher Nolan. Years later and people are still debating what happened in those final few scenes. Case in point, Christian Bale was doing an interview for Exodus: Gods and Kings and was asked his thoughts on the ending. Listen to The Dark Knight Rises ending explained by Christian Bale below.
