Back to the Future Hollywood Bowl

Last night at the Hollywood Bowl, the record was broken for the largest Back to the Future screening. An estimated crowd of over 16,000 people watched the film on the big screen, accompanied by live orchestration.

As you know, I’m a huge Back to the Future fan, so of course I was in attendance for the monumental event. After the jump you can find more information, alongside my thoughts and also some photos and video of the event.

Diary of a Teenage Girl UK trailer

After making a splash at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, the indie sensation The Diary of a Teenage Girl is coming to theaters next month. The film may not have made our list of the Best of Sundance 2015, but it’s certainly one of those indies worth seeking out this summer.

Now a new trailer from across the pond has surfaced, showcasing a tale of sexual exploration and coming-of-age, driven stupendously by a breakthrough performance from Bel Powley. And coming through with outstanding supporting performances are Alexander Skarsgard and Kristen Wiig too. Watch The Diary of a Teenage Girl UK trailer below! Read More »

Terminator 2 T-1000 special effects

Today brings Terminator: Genisys to theaters, mashing up all sorts of elements from the previous films in the franchise into one big, convoluted mess of a time travel sci-fi adventure. (Though our own Peter Sciretta didn’t hate it.) But at the very least, the film does get people talking about what I think is the best film in the series, Terminator 2: Judgment Day.

While the newest film brings the liquid metal T-1000 model back into the fray, albeit in the form of Byung-hun Lee instead of Robert Patrick, this time the liquid effects of the regenerating Terminator are done digitally. But back in 1990, even though the film was a pioneer in digital effects, many gags had to be done practically by Stan Winston Studios. And we have a fantastic look back at how the Terminator 2 T-1000 special effects were created. Watch below! Read More »

In 2013, two “Die Hard in the White House” movies entered the box office arena. Only one emerged, and it headed straight across the pond.

The two arrive in London to attend the funeral of the British prime minister. But when the event becomes a target for terrorists, they must team with an MI6 agent (Charlotte Riley) to prevent the world as we know it from ending. Watch the first London Has Fallen trailer after the jump. Read More »
