When Eastenders actor Ben Hardy was cast in X-Men Apocalypse, everyone thought he was playing Angel. Bryan Singer even posted concept art of Angel in the movie, but there was no mention of Hardy. Reports denied the actor was playing the winged X-Man, creating some confusion. Now, the director has confirmed Hardy is Angel, and he’s even revealed some new concept art to illustrate the character. Check out the X-Men Apocalypse Angel concept art below. Read More »

We all remember Frank Miller‘s adaptation of Will Eisner‘s The Spirit, or maybe we’re trying to forget it. That wasn’t the first time Hollywood attempted to bring the comic book classic to the big screen. One of the previous attempts was to turn the story into an animated movie, with a young director named Brad Bird creating a fake pitch trailer to try to sell the feature. This was of course before Bird went on to direct The Iron Giant, The Incredibles or Ratatouille. He was a young filmmaker just out of Cal Arts.
Find out the Brad Bird The Spirit adaptation story, see some concept art and even read a letter Bird supposedly wrote to pitch the project to Steven Spielberg.

Exactly one year from today, we’ll be sitting down for the opening weekend of Zootopia, the next big-screen adventure from Disney Animation. To celebrate that fact, the studio has revealed a new bit of Zootopia concept art showing off the story’s unique setting.
As promised, it looks kind of like a natural habitat “if you squint.” Basically, it’s the city an animal might build if they could design their own. Check out the Zootopia concept art after the jump. Read More »
The name Neill Blomkamp has been everywhere of late. He’s directing the next Alien movie. He says he messed up his last movie. But the one thing that keeps getting lost in all of that talk is that he has a new movie out March 6, called Chappie. It’s the story of robot which gains consciousness, and appears to be infused with the director’s trademark social commentary, high-octane action and a big time cast.
We’ll have more on the film as release approaches but we’re excited to reveal some brand new images from Titan Books’ Chappie: The Art of the Movie. It’s out March 3 and is filled with concept art and behind the scenes images, many of which focus on Sharlto Copley‘s performance capture role as the lead character.
Below, check out brand new Chappie behind the scenes images. Read More »

For every Disney project we see released, there are tons that never see the light of day. A new example for that list is an abandoned Toy Story video game that was going to be set in space. It was being developed by Avalanche Software in the time between releasing their Toy Story 3 game and moving onto the current, ultra popular Disney Infinity.
So what did this mystery Toy Story in space game look like? Artist and animator Sam Nielson has put up some concept art for the game on online. Check out the Toy Story video game concept art below. Read More »
Jupiter Ascending, the latest sci-fi epic from The Wachowskis, hit theaters this weekend and didn’t do too well. It grossed around $19 million over its opening weekend, which is about what Speed Racer did in 2008. Both film had big budgets and expectations but will ultimately be considered box office failures.
That’s unfortunate because both movies are visual marvels. Whether you think Jupiter Ascending is brilliant or boring, there’s little denying the costumes, props, sets and production design are pretty masterful. They’re a beautiful amalgamation of ideas from sci-fi, fantasy, anime, manga, video games and more, filtered through the visionary eye of the Wachowskis.
Of course, it’s not like Lana and Larry sit around designing all this stuff. They hire talented designers, concept artists and so many others to visualize their ideas, which they then approve or discard. Now, we’ve got our hands on a whole slew of Jupiter Ascending concept art that gives a great look at a bunch of the tech in the film, as well as some hints that Channing Tatum’s backstory might have played a larger part in the movie. See the Jupiter Ascending concept art below. Read More »
