Comic Con 2015 show floor photos

The entire SlashFilm crew is all over San Diego for the rest of the week, and if you’ve been paying attention to the front page, then you already know that we’re covering Comic-Con like crazy. We tossed up some photos of downtown San Diego with the buildings covered in upcoming movies and TV shows, and now we have an inside look at the show floor.

Comic-Con is massive, and it’s impossible to get pictures of everything, so we decided to just get some snapshots of things that we personally thought were cool. Whether it’s unique displays, awesome props, collectible toys, spectacular artwork, we just wanted everyone to see some of the coolest stuff from the show floor.

Check out our Comic Con 2015 showfloor photos after the jump! Read More »

Game of Thrones Hardhome Night King

In Season 5, Game of Thrones sent Jon Snow north of the Wall to convince the wildlings to ally with the Night’s Watch against the undead. Well — kind of. In a more strictly accurate sense, Game of Thrones sent Kit Harington and some other actors to Ireland, to swing some prop swords in front of a green screen on set. VFX wizards then turned that footage into the epic fantasy battle we saw on our TVs.

But that’s the thing about the effects on Game of Thrones. They’re often so good, it’s easy to forget they’re effects at all. That is, until something like this Game of Thrones Hardhome VFX breakdown hits, and we get to see just how much work goes into these sequences. Watch the video after the jump.  Read More »
