Moonfall Opening Scene in LEGO

First up, to help hype up the release of "Moonfall" this weekend, Lionsgate had content creator OnBeatMan remake the opening scene of the wild sci-fi disaster movie using stop-motion animation and LEGO pieces. It's not even two minutes of the movie, but the level of detail in the space shuttle and its interiors, not to mention the cinematic lighting, really brings it to life, especially when disaster comes knocking in space.

Next, the visual effects artists from Corridor Crew used their talents to give Denis Villeneuve's most recent adaptation of "Dune" some throwback visual effects. More specifically, the combat training scene with Josh Brolin and Timothée Chalamet is given the same polygonal shields that appeared in the original movie's scene with Kyle MacLachlan and Patrick Stewart, but they have a contemporary touch.
