Brad Bird The Spirit
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.

chappie behind the scenes

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.
