The Force Awakens Visual Effects

Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now available on home video, which means you can watch the feature-length documentary that chronicles the making of the film. It doesn’t go quite as in-depth as I was hoping, but it’s still a fascinating look behind the scenes at the effort that went into reviving one of the biggest franchises of all time.

Now a new makeshift featurette provides a little bit of a different visual effects breakdown than we’re used to seeing. Using a combination of footage from the set without visual effects, animatics, concept art and some documentary footage, the video runs through the scene where Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega) have to run from the First Order to escape Jakku.

hardcore henry behind-the-scenes

When I interviewed Hardcore Henry director Ilya Naishuller at SXSW last month, we spent a fair amount of time talking about how shooting this film was a total pain in the ass. But that’s what you get when you set out to make a first-person perspective action movie – you get a lot of hard days and long nights and migraine headaches. And while I have mixed feelings on Hardcore Henry, the film is impressively assembled and utterly unlike anything you’ve seen before and the process of how it was shot is genuinely fascinating. Hell, a documentary about the making of the movie would be as compelling as an actual action film.

And while no such documentary exists (yet), a music video comprised entirely of footage from the film’s shoot has arrived online and it’s an incredibly entertaining, if slightly nerve-wracking, watch.

guardians of the galaxy 2 set tour

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 has been quietly filming for some time now, with only the occasional Sylvester Stallone sighting reminding us that the next adventure of Marvel’s motley band of space scoundrels is only a year and change away. But now, we have our first proper and official report straight from the set. Heck, straight from Star-Lord himself. A new video featuring Chris Pratt has arrived online, in which the always-endearing actor takes us on a tour of the film’s set.

But there’s an ulterior motive here: charity. Yep, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is the latest major movie to ask fans to open their wallets for a good cause in exchange for swag and, for one lucky winner, a chance to come visit the set of the film.

game of thrones season 6 featurette

Game of Thrones has no shortage of monsters. Some of those monsters are human beings, scoundrels and killers and torturers, who just need a great actor to bring them to life. Others, like the zombies and those mysterious ice demons, require a little more practical elbow grease.

A new featurette has arrived, showing off the ever-popular show’s prosthetic department and offering a cool glimpse at just how much time, energy, and effort goes into making a single White Walker. And since there seem to be more and more of these guys every season, that’s a lot of time, energy, and effort.

Daredevil Season 2

The first season of Daredevil had a damn good villain in Wilson Fisk — one of the best in the MCU, along with Loki and Kilgrave. So how does the show top that in season 2? Well, by bringing on not one but two classic figures to antagonize our poor beleaguered devil of Hell’s Kitchen: a hardcore vigilante known as the Punisher, played by Jon Bernthal, and a dangerous former flame called Elektra, played by Elodie Yung.

The final trailer for Daredevil season 2 debuted earlier this week, but today Netflix served up another little taste of the trials and tribulations to come in the form of a new featurette. This one focuses on Daredevil and the Punisher, with Bernthal and Charlie Cox on hand to talk up their characters. Watch the Daredevil season 2 featurette after the jump.  Read More »

Terminator Genisys Visual Effects

It’s no secret that Terminator Genisys wasn’t the movie that most of the franchise’s fans were hoping for and it certainly wasn’t the box office hit that Paramount Pictures hoped that it would be. The previously planned sequels were put on indefinite hold, supposedly so a readjustment could be made to the future of the film series, but then any follow-up was seemingly canceled back in January. It’s certainly a bummer that we won’t see the franchise continue, but that’s what happens when the studio makes a mediocre movie.

However, there was some decent work done on the movie in the visual effects department, especially when it comes to recreating a younger version of Arnold Schwarzenegger to fight the aged Terminator who has been taking care of Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) in this wholly confusing alternate timeline. A new Terminator Genisys visual effects breakdown has just debuted online, showing how much work went into the sequel. Read More »
