On the screen, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is all about bright white and pitch black. But on the set, the dominant color was green — as in green screen.
As these two Sin City: A Dame to Kill For behind-the-scenes videos show, almost everything you see on screen aside from the actors is really made of pixels. If you’ve ever wondered what the film might look like without all the fancy VFX work, find out after the jump.

You would need an encyclopedia to know how many different versions of the original Star Wars Trilogy are out there. From obvious changes made to create the Special Editions, or the addition of “Episode IV” to the first film, to more subtle ones like color correction or audio tweaks, there are dozens of different versions of each film. All fans want, though, are the original negatives, with no “special” additions, but corrections to make them look and sound as good as modern technology will allow.
Unfortunately, that’s probably never going to happen because of rights issues and George Lucas’ wishes. So a group of fans made the Star Wars Despecialized Edition, a painstaking project that’s still in progress. The Despecialized Edition removes all the additions and tweaks slathered onto the films over the years, while simultaneously upgrading the sound and picture to modern standards. The results are pretty incredible and a new featurette shows the jaw-dropping changes and work put into the project. Read More »
The reasons to see Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame to Kill For are numerous. The incredible cast for one, which includes Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green, Dennis Haysbert, Stacy Keach, Jaime King, Ray Liotta, Jeremy Piven, Mickey Rourke and Bruce Willis. The filmmakers are another, the iconic storyteller Frank Miller and maverick Robert Rodriguez. There’s the pulpy, exciting source material. And now, we even get a Quentin Tarantino trailer to boot.
But to truly experience a film like this, one that was probably more than half made in the computer, you almost have to see it in 3D. It was specifically crafted that way. In a new featurette, exclusively debuting on /Film, you can listen to the filmmakers and stars talk about the 3D in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Watch the Sin City 2 3D featurette below. Read More »
The show floor at San Diego Comic-Con is an obstacle course crossed with a puzzle. You’ll traverse masses of people and giant booths to find cool things of interest that could be hidden anywhere. For movie fans, one of the best (and best-hidden) booths was for Legendary Pictures. Though it was extremely tiny, it had very cool things from three movies: Warcraft, Pacific Rim and Crimson Peak. We covered all of them during our Comic Con coverage but the Legendary folks have provided a video tour of their own, featuring director Guillermo del Toro explaining some of the secrets behind Crimson Peak and the amazing Pacific Rim Oculus Rift experience. See the Guillermo del Toro Comic Con videos below Read More »
With Captain America: The Winter Soldier hitting digital formats later this month (before its September 9 bow on Blu-ray), Marvel has begun rolling out hints of the special features. Two deleted scenes from the film just made it online along with a tease at a blooper reel.
Like most deleted scenes, you totally understand why these were cut. Each provides a piece of information that’s either pointless or better conveyed in another scene. Still, finding out where Cap’s new suit went, plus to see Cobie Smulders go at Maximiliano Hernández is pretty great.
Check out the new Captain America The Winter Soldier deleted scenes and blooper reel below. Read More »
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 »

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.
