More so than pretty much any movie this summer, you’re going to walk out of Matt Reeves‘ Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and think, “How the HECK did they do that?” The combination of technical expertise mixed with dramatic artistry is absolutely magnificent and, somehow, a huge step up from the already-impressive Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Mix those elements with a complex, emotional story of acceptance, family and prejudice, add in a ton of huge action, and you’ve got one of the best films of the summer.
As for that question of “How,” author Matt Hurwitz has your answers in the new book Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Dawn of Planet of the Apes: The Art of the Films. Out July 8, it’s filled with concept art and behind the scenes images from both films and, below, we’ve got some exclusive early glimpses. Check out the Rise and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes concept art below. Read More »

You may have noticed the upcoming issue of Empire Magazine Australia has a pretty unique and awesome cover. It’s an illustration of several popular and influential filmmakers, next to images from their films, all to commemorate a special “Director’s Cut” issue. Filmmakers such as Steven Spielberg, David Fincher, Joss Whedon, Francis Ford Coppola, Sofia Coppola, Michael Mann, David Lynch, John Woo, Danny Boyle, Guillermo del Toro and others contributed content to the issue, so a special cover was made.
The cover is by popular artist Joshua Budich and we talked to him about how it all came about. Below, check out the full image he submitted to Empire and read more about it. Read More »
The Dinobots are what it’s all about in Transformers: Age of Extinction. From the film’s earliest iterations, the idea to bring in the fan favorite characters was at the center of the film’s construction. They then became the focus of the marketing and were the reward in the theater once they finally show up in Michael Bay‘s long movie.
When designing something that important, of course, what we see on screen is never the only version. It’s the final version after months and months of concepts, designs, approvals and denials. One of the artists involved, Wesley Burt, uploaded a bunch of Transformers 4 Dinobots concept art to Facebook and, below, you can see alternate versions of the characters. Read More »
Denis Leary and FX are teaming up once more. Leary’s show Rescue Me (above), which he co-created with Peter Tolan, ran for seven seasons on FX, ending in 2011. Now the channel has ordered a ten-episode first season of Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, in which Leary stars as Johnny Rock, a would-be rock star who nearly became a sensation in the early ’90s before torpedoing his career my making terrible choices.
The new series will premiere in 2015, but we now have the first image of Leary and co-stars John Corbett, John Ales, and Robert Kelly as a paunchy rock band with attitude and some horrible hair. Check it out below. Read More »
Many of us are huge Star Wars fans, and the mere thought that there’s a new film being shot right now is enough to give chills. Now go beyond that thought and daydream about visiting the set. Seeing the Millennium Falcon, touching it, learning a few pieces of information, would be a feeling that’s almost too wild to imagine. Most fans would probably have an emotional breakdown right there at Pinewood.
Kevin Smith is a long time Star Wars fan. Since Clerks, almost every one of Smith’s movies and projects has talked about the franchise, or featured some kind of fleeting reference to or influence from Star Wars. So it must have been pretty awesome for the director to travel to London and visit the set of J.J. Abrams‘ Star Wars Episode VII. How awesome was it? Smith broke into tears. Read More »
The first 4DX movie theater in the United States opened in Los Angeles last weekend. Located in theater 6 at the Regal Cinemas LA Live in Downtown LA, the 104-seat theater books one first-run 3D movie at a time, and augments the showing with real-world physical effects. Those effects are the fourth dimension.
So, timed with the movie, you basically experience a theme park ride. Your seat rumbles and moves around, water squirts, there’s smoke, flashing lights, lumbar effects, gusting wind, even scents. The presentation admirably tries to bring the viewer into the movie.
Michael Bay‘s Transformers: Age of Extinction was the first film to play in the format here, so Peter Sciretta and myself were given a nearly three hour 4DX experience. This was great in that we were privy to the full slate of 4DX effects, but the film also became a tasking mental and physical exercise. Below, we present a video blog about the experience, along with a bunch of photos and a brief rundown of how Transformers: Age of Extinction translates into 4DX. Read More »
