Jurassic World featurette

This week brings Jurassic World, the biggest movie of the year so far, to Blu-Ray and DVD, so fans can get all the new dinosaur madness they can handle from the comfort of their homes. And they can also dive behind the scenes of the making of the massive blockbuster that has reinvigorated the franchise started by Steven Spielberg in 1993.

But if you happen to be waiting for someone to get you the movie for Christmas or something like that, check out a Jurassic World featurette on how the Indominus Rex was created, complete with some early animatics of the genetically modified hybrid in action. Read More »

Dismaland is closed

Banksy‘s Dismaland is closed for good. The dark twist on Disneyland — or an honest depiction, if you loathe the place — highlighted the works of artists Damien Hirst, Jenny Holzer, and others. It’s one big interactive art piece. For all of you who were lucky enough to have visited Dismaland, damn you. For those of us not fortunate enough to have attended, thankfully there’s plenty of photos and videos for us. Watch Dismaland: The Official Unofficial Film after the jump.

Robin Williams Aladdin outtakes

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been 23 years since Disney’s animated musical Aladdin hit theaters. And while it’s not a special anniversary for the film, the film comes to Blu-Ray for the first time on October 13th, which means there are some cool new special features that are coming to light.

One such feature reveals Robin Williams Aladdin outtakes from his voice recording sessions as Genie, one of most iconic roles from the late actor’s celebrated career. And a tease of the never-before-seen footage of Williams firing on all cylinders has surfaced online. Watch it below! Read More »

Sicario visual effects

If you haven’t ventured out to theaters to see the drug trafficking action thriller Sicario, allow me to recommend that you stop dragging your feet and take a chance on what may be one of the best films of the year. It’s an intense, white knuckle flick featuring a bad ass performance from Emily Blunt, and a scene-stealing turn from Benicio del Toro.

And when you see the film, you probably won’t realize there are actually a bunch of impressive, unnoticeable visual effects in the movie. But a Sicario visual effects reel from Oblique FX shows just what was real and what was digitally created. Having just seen the movie recently, I was floored after learning just how many visual effects were employed. However, if you haven’t seen Sicario, beware of minor spoilers. Read More »

Inside Out Bing Bong

Bing Bong has plenty of reason to be suspicious of change in Inside Out. As Riley’s imaginary friend, he gets shoved further into the sidelines the older she gets. But at one point in the development and production process, director Pete Docter imagined the lovable creature as being a bit more disgruntled, and a bit more active in his resistance to change.

A just-released deleted scene shows an earlier version of Bing Bong that Docter describes as “a radical non-conformist” and “an even more extreme version of Joy.” Watch the Inside Out deleted scene after the jump.  Read More »

Moana first look

Audiences were blown away by the footage shown from Disney’s forthcoming animated adventure Moana at D23 back in August, but at the time, the film from The Little Mermaid veterans Ron Clements and John Musker hadn’t yet revealed an actress for the titular role.

That changes today as the studio has announced 14-year old actress Auli’i Cravalho, a native of Oahu, Hawaii, has landed the part. Along with the announcement, Disney released a Moana first look photo (above) showing her character alongside the legendary demi-god Maui (voiced by Dwayne Johnson), as well as a featurette introducing Cravalho and explaining how she got the coveted part.

Back to the Future Part III set video

Yesterday brought a lot of fun updates for fans of Back to the Future, from the forthcoming arrival of Pepsi Perfect (in a very limited supply) to a trailer for Jaws 19 to the arrival of skateboards modeled after the iconic hoverboards from the film, just as the word for the floating device has been recognized by the dictionary.

And now we bring some unique footage from a Back to the Future Part III set video, shot by someone who just happened to live next door to the house that was used as the McFly residence. She’s a peeping tom! It’s nothing too revealing, but it gives you a good idea of the vibe on a film set, which usually requires a lot of standing around. Read More »

Macbeth featurette

Macbeth, from director Justin Kurzel and starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, appears to be, if nothing else, a visually overwhelming adaptation of the play by William Shakespeare. Fassbender plays the general Macbeth, of course, who becomes king through treacherous violence, while Cotillard plays his devious and ruthless wife Lady Macbeth.

This Macbeth featurette features interviews with those three primary voices (Shakespeare not included) and features interesting notes just as Kurzel saying the script read like a western, and the idea that Macbeth is suffering from PTSD.

There are some good “making of” shots here, too, which are just as visually striking as the film’s footage itself. Fortunately, this featurette is just a bit more substantial than most things of this type. Running five minutes long it’s still a pretty digestible piece of marketing, but it gives the actors room to talk, and so we’ll take it.

Watch it after the jump.  Read More »
