In Search Of Humans header

I’m not sure if /Film readers are looking forward to The Maze Runner, as it might look like another young adult book adaptation. But the footage that was screened at Comic Con surprised those in attendance, and I think it will we will all be pleasantly surprised by the film when its released.

We’ve been following filmmaker Wes Ball since the release of his computer animated short film Ruin a couple years ago. (He has a deal with Fox to eventually make a big screen adaptation of the short.) Ball is part of a new generation of filmmakers who display a mastery of computer-generated imagery and know how to use it as part of the filmmaking toolset. Yesterday the filmmaker went on a mini-rant on Twitter about how he believes audiences are ready for a fully-CG computer-animated feature film for adults, and how he wants to see a “photographic” quality computer-animated feature. He even teased a project he’s been working on for some time. Check out some concept art, a poster and a concept pitch teaser trailer for Wes Ball‘s In Search Of Humans. Learn more, after the jump.

Simpsons Family Guy Crossover

The Simpsons and the Griffiths have danced around each other for years, sharing Fox’s Animation Domination programming block and taking good-natured jabs around each other on their respective shows. But it’s only this fall that they’re coming face-to-face for the very first time.

At Comic-Con this weekend, attendees got a first look at the upcoming Simpsons / Family Guy crossover in the form of a five-minute preview. Now the clip has just hit the web, and you can check it out after the jump.

Game of Thrones gag reel

The Lannisters are tough, poker-faced bastards, but the actors who play members of one of the elite families of Westeros can’t always keep a straight face on set. Luckily the cameras are rolling even when some of these folk are in their more vulnerable moments, and so we’ve got an entertaining Game of Thrones gag reel from season four. (Worry not; it’s not just the Lannister family caught in weird moments here. If you’re a Lion-hater there are still plenty of highlights here to enjoy.)

There are no big spoilers here, though I’m not sure why you’d be watching this sort of reel if you’re not caught up on the show in the first place. Check out the video below. Read More »

Hannibal Season 2 gag reel

The world of Hannibal is a deadly serious one, full of intelligent psychopaths able to realize their  ”designs” with terrifying precision. But as the Hannibal Season 2 gag reel shows, the set of Hannibal looks much more lighthearted.

After the jump, watch Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, and the rest of the cast screw up during takes and screw around between them.

Blood Meridian James Franco

James Franco directed an adaption of the Cormac McCarthy novel Child of God, which opens in some theaters on August 1. But Franco also wanted to adapt McCarthy’s novel Blood Meridian, and even Franco admits the book seems like an “un-filmable” novel. That didn’t stop him from trying, and a few years ago Franco shot a test reel for the project. This 25-minute reel features characters from the novel that fans will very much recognize. Notably, the Judge appears, played by Mark Pellegrino. The Kid is played by Dave Franco, and Scott Glen and Luke Perry show up, too, as Tobin and Glanton.

This is very much a test reel — a rough edit, and lacking any polished sound mix — but it’s interesting to see Franco explore this particular sequence at length. If this was ever made as a traditional feature, this whole sequence would likely be condensed in a significant fashion. Additionally, the cast here may not have ended up in the feature. Note to anyone unfamiliar with Blood Meridian: this is not safe for work. Read More »

Darren Aronofsky's Noah behind the scenes

Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah hits home video on July 29th 2014 (preorder it here) and Paramount has released a bunch of video clips from the making of documentary on the blu-ray release. I really liked the film, and its always great to see real clips of Darren Aronofsky directing a film. These clips go to show just how much cast and crew it takes to bring this tale to the big screen. One of the clips shows the elaborate rig which creates the rain at the beginning of the flood sequence. Watch the Noah behind the scenes video clips after the jump.
