Blade Runner 2

Director Denis Villeneuve (Sicario) begins principal photography on Blade Runner 2 this month. The sequel takes place decades after Sir Ridley Scott‘s 1982 film (around 2047 or 2050, says Scott), but we know little about the plot or even whom the project’s star, Ryan Gosling, is playing. Villeneuve hasn’t spilled any significant new details lately, but he has shared some artwork. Below, check out the Blade Runner 2 concept art.

Hollywood has been getting plenty of flack, and justifiably so, for the whitewashing of roles that should be meant for actors and actresses of different ethnic backgrounds. From Gods of Egypt to most recently Ghost in the Shell, plenty of minorities, especially the actors within these groups, are upset at the lack of diversity in mainstream Hollywood. Therefore, some might not be happy with the proposed concept art for a live-action adaptation of Akira that has been circulating.

Concept artist Ruairi Robinson was once working on one of the many iterations of the gestating live-action adaptation of the classic manga that Hollywood has been trying to get off the ground for years. In a couple pieces that have surfaced online, Captain America franchise star Chris Evans and Looper star Joseph Gordon-Levitt were depicted in the lead roles as Kaneda and Tetsuo respectively.

Justice League logo 700x300

Earlier this month, our own Peter Sciretta visited the set of Warner Bros.’ Justice League and returned with hopeful reports of a movie with more heart and a more colorful personality than the divisive Batman v Superman had. But as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. So today, we’ve got some art for you to feast your eyes on.

A new bit of Justice League concept art has been revealed thanks to the digital HD release of the Batman v Superman Ultimate Edition, and it offers a better look at the whole gang: Batman (Ben Affleck), Superman (Henry Cavill), Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), the Flash (Ezra Miller), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher).

spider-man 4 concept art

Sam Raimi‘s Spider-Man 4 is one of my all-time favorite “What If?” movies. I’m in the small fan club of weirdos and losers that enjoys the heck out of the completely batty and bonkers Spider-Man 3, but it’s no secret that Raimi was dissatisfied with how that film turned out. With one more good movie, he could have redeemed the series and sent Tobey Maguire’s Spidey out on a high note. Spider-Man 4 could have been the one that redeemed all of Peter Parker’s (hilarious and great, if you want my dumb opinion) dancing.

But then things went wrong. Raimi abruptly walked away from the film in 2010. Sony moved ahead with The Amazing Spider-Man and we all know how that turned out. Spider-Man 4 was kaput. However, a few very cool pieces of art have surfaced online, giving us a glimpse at what could have been.

Newt

Alien Day may be a fake holiday cooked up to promote Alien-related products and projects, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate and enjoy it. Director Neill Blomkamp, for one, got in on the festivities by unveiling a bit of concept art from his delayed Alien sequel that Sigourney Weaver says is still happening. It’s especially intriguing because it shows an adult Newt, fitting with earlier reports that the film would ignore the events of Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection. Check it out below.  Read More »

finding dory real life inspiration

Last month, I traveled to the Monterey Bay Aquarium to talk to Andrew Stanton and the filmmakers of Pixar’s upcoming Finding Nemo sequel Finding Dory. On my visit, I got to preview 30 minutes of the upcoming film and chat with many of the filmmakers at Pixar who are creating Dory’s next adventure. But not only that, I got to learn how Pixar took multiple research trips to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which served as inspiration for the Marine Life Institute seen in the final film.
