Jurassic World - Indominus Rex Concept Art

When Jurassic World hit theaters in the summer of 2015, it had to at least try to match the screen presence of the majestic but deadly tyrannosaurus rex from the original Jurassic Park. That’s easier said than done, and despite having a meta sort of storyline about the fully functional Jurassic World creating a genetic hybrid beast to keep the park’s attendees interested, the so-called Indominus Rex wasn’t all that impressive. But perhaps it could have been.

Concept artist Ian Joyner recently shared a piece of concept art he created for Jurassic World, showing off an alternate design for the Indominus Rex. It’s quite the departure from the final creature we saw in the half-reboot, half-sequel, but it looks significantly cooler, in our opinion. Read More »

Mortal Engines

Author Phillip Reeve’s four-part Predator Cities book series isn’t messing around when it comes to its title: in the future depicted in the novels, cities have become actual predators.

Kong: Skull Island landed the top spot at the box office this past weekend, and if you took the time to see the action adventure, you were treated to some stunning visuals and incredible monster movie action. Now you can see some of the concept art that inspired the gorgeous cinematography that brought Kong to life, and while many of the images ended up being perfectly recreated in the movie, there are a couple of interesting pieces that didn’t make the cut.

Black Panther Concept Art

We’ve still got a full year until Black Panther hits theaters, but production is underway on the first solo outing for the African superhero who was added to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in Captain America: Civil War. While the first official stills haven’t been unveiled just yet, a sneak peek at what we might see from the movie has arrived in the form of concept art.

Thor Ragnarok Concept Art

Today brought Doctor Strange, Marvel’s most recent addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, to Digital HD. Since Marvel has some of the most rabid fans, they’ve already been combing over the special features for the home video release of the mystical superhero’s first adventure. One such feature includes a sneak peek at what’s in store for Phase 3 of the MCU, including some new concept art for the next installment of the Thor franchise.

Thor: Ragnarok is going to mix the franchise up a bit by taking Thor (Chris Hemsworth) on an adventure to the other side of the universe instead of heading back to Earth for the bulk of the action. Asgard is facing its biggest threat yet, but perhaps the toughest challenge the God of Thunder has to face before that is battling The Incredible Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), this time in a cosmic gladiator arena. The new piece of Thor Ragnarok concept art shows Thor and Hulk battling yet again after their first encounter in The Avengers, but it looks a little more intense this time. Check it out. Read More »

Maisie Williams as Wolfsbane in New Mutants

Production on the X-Men spin-off New Mutants is rumored to begin in April or May this year with The Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone at the helm. 20th Century Fox hasn’t made any official announcement about the project, but there have been plenty of details that have surfaced. Now one of those details seems to have been confirmed by Josh Boone himself.

Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has been linked to the cast of New Mutants, though no word on her involvement has been confirmed by anyone. Josh Boone may have just done that though by sharing a piece of art featuring the actress as Rahne Sinclair, the mutant who comes to be known as Wolfsbane, due to the fact that she can transform into a wolf.

Rust Animation Test Footage

A live-action adaptation of Royden Lepp‘s family-friendly graphic novel Rust has been in the works since the summer of 2011, a few months before it was even available to purchase. A year later, Attack the Block director and The Adventures of Tintin co-writer Joe Cornish was attached to direct the film, produced by Simon Kinberg, with a script by The Devil Wears Prada writer Aline Brosh McKenna. Since then, we haven’t heard anything about the project, but that changes today.

Sadly, there hasn’t been any update on the development of Rust, but it appears there may have once been an idea to turn the movie into an animated adaptation instead of a live-action movie. Some Rust test footage has been discovered online, created by animator Ryan J. Woodward, the same guy who has worked on movies like Space Jam, Osmosis Jones, The Iron Giant and Tomorrowland.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Ryan Gosling as Doctor Strange

Even though Marvel Studios ended up picking Benedict Cumberbatch to play the title role of Doctor Strange in the second theatrical release this year, there were several options that were on the table at various times. Actors like Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto and Ryan Gosling were once in the running, and now we get to see what it might have been like to have one of those actors wearing the cape of The Sorcerer Supreme.

Concept artist Court Chu has shared two pieces that he created when Marvel Studios was hoping to land Ryan Gosling as Doctor Strange. It sounds like maybe their desire was short-lived, or maybe Gosling quickly turned down the role, because he says, ““I worked probably not even a day on some version of Doctor Strange years ago, and back then they wanted Gosling.”
