Chappie visual effects

Earlier this summer, we featured a very brief look at the visual effects that helped bring Neill Blomkamp‘s futuristic fairytale Chappie to life. A live performance on set was done with Sharlto Copley (District 9), and then the actor was replaced entirely with visual effects, and now we get to see just how perfectly the effects mirror Copley’s performance.

Ash vs Evil Dead Making-Of

We’ve seen a couple trailers for Ash vs Evil Dead, now it’s time for the behind the scenes featurette. This one should do the trick; it’s a couple minutes of bland but enthusiastic quotes from Bruce Campbell, producer Robert Tapert, new co-star Lucy Lawless, and composer Joseph LoDuca, among others. It’s got some good shots of the show’s creation, and one or two good bits, including Lucy Lawless’s comment that the show is a “jolly splatter-fest!” Check out the Ash vs Evil Dead making-of video below.  Read More »

Star Trek Beyond Leonard Nimoy

Thanks to the Omaze charity efforts of the Star Trek: To Boldly Go campaign, we’ve gotten some glimpses behind the scenes of the forthcoming sequel Star Trek Beyond, including some new aliens, the new Starfleet uniforms, and the cast showing off their best dance moves on the bridge of the Enterprise.

And with one week left to donate, thereby earning the chance to win a walk-on role in the move from director Justin Lin, a new charity video has just surfaced with a Star Trek Beyond charity video that also acts as a Leonard Nimoy tribute, complete with the cast giving Spock’s customary farewell.

The Empire Strikes Back without music

It’s hard to imagine what Star Wars would be like without the incredible music of composer John Williams. The themes created by the master of movie music are just as iconic as the movie itself, and more recognizable than 95% of the scores we hear for movies. But how does Williams prepare to write music for films?

Some vintage footage from 1980 shows Williams sitting down with producer George Lucas, director Irvin Kershner and producer Gary Kurtz to watch a cut of The Empire Strikes Back without music in order to figure out what he wants to do with the score for these scenes. In the clip, you actually get to see footage from the Star Wars sequel with a temporary soundtrack, and it’s absolutely fascinating. Read More »
