Regardless of your feelings about Avengers: Age of Ultron, seeing the process of creation for a movie like that one is always fascinating. With so many moving parts to juggle, from actors and their characters and storylines to locations, effects, and all the post-production details, there are innumerable tricks and secrets to learn.
Yesterday we saw an Age of Ultron featurette showing some of the creation of Vision; today we have three more. One explains the effects that brought some powers to life. Two others explore how James Spader interacted on set with other actors including Mark Ruffalo, Elizabeth Olsen and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. (One neat bit: during takes, they had to use balls mounted a couple feet above Spader’s head as an eyeline for the giant Ultron.) Watch all three below, and prepare to Marvel at Mark Ruffalo’s continued astonishment at the particulars of his job. Read More »
Spotlight tells the story of the Boston Globe’s investigation into allegations of child molestation by Catholic priests, and just look at this cast assembled by director Tom McCarthy: you’ve got Michael Keaton, Mark Ruffalo, Rachel McAdams, Liev Schrieber, Brian D’Arcy James, Stanley Tucci and Billy Crudup playing people on both ends of the legal argument. The Spotlight trailer features them all, and it’s footage that is pretty difficult to resist in the end. Read More »
Back in April, during publicity rounds for The Avengers: Age of Ultron, some new information surfaced regarding the future of The Incredible Hulk, and whether or not Marvel Studios had plans for Mark Ruffalo to get his own solo Hulk movie.
A somewhat surprising reason surfaced as to why a new Hulk movie wasn’t in the works. Ruffalo said that Universal (which made the two previous big-screen outings for the big guy) still had the rights to any future Hulk movies, putting a kink in any plans Marvel might have. However, it turns out that’s not entirely true, and Universal may not be holding up Marvel at all. Find out more about the Universal Hulk rights after the jump! Read More »
As it stands right now, Captain America: Civil War will include every single Earth-bound superhero in the MCU minus two: Thor and Hulk. They’re even adding in the new people like Ant-Man. So why are those two characters not in the movie? Thor, at least, has a solo movie that should cover his absence but Hulk does not. Last we saw the mean, green machine he was in a S.H.I.E.L.D plane hoping to get lost from the world.
According to Mark Ruffalo, the actor behind Hulk, he hasn’t heard anything about the movie except from one person: Robert Downey Jr. Tony Stark himself told Ruffalo he was in Civil War, but Ruffalo says he hasn’t heard from anyone else beyond that. Read the Mark Ruffalo Captain America Civil War quotes and more below. Read More »

One of the best films of the new century is undoubtedly Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. It’s an innovative, beautiful, mesmerizing, heartbreaking and simultaneously uplifting romance. The Charlie Kaufman scripted, Michel Gondry directed film is one of my five favorites of all time, and I’ve explored and read about every facet of the film.
But there might be some of you out there who haven’t dug as deep. That’s why I wanted to post this featurette that dives into the unique and quaint visual effects of the film. Michel Gondry is known for using some interesting practical production methods, but this featurette looks at the seamless digital visual effects that helped complete the film. There are some effects here that you probably didn’t even notice.

Although it’s billed as a Captain America movie, Civil War at this point has a cast big enough to rival any Avengers team-up. Still, not every character in the MCU made it in, and one name that was conspicuously absent was Mark Ruffalo. Or so we thought. A recent post by Ruffalo suggests the Hulk may be joining his Avengers teammates for Captain America: Civil War after all. More about the possible Captain America Civil War Hulk casting after the jump. Read More »
