When Danny Boyle was announced as the director of James Bond 25, the movie world was abuzz with what his version of a Bond movie would look like. But alas, that buzz was cut short when Boyle suddenly left the project in August last year, citing that dreaded term: “creative differences.” Boyle hasn’t spoken since on the reason he clashed over the vision of the film with star Daniel Craig and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson, but in a new interview, he illuminates why he left the project and why he feels no ill will toward current director Cary Fukunaga. Read More »

Lost footage from Ralph Bakshi‘s animated film, The Lord of the Rings, finally expands on a scene fans know all too well from Peter Jackson’s trilogy.
Bakshi’s film, released in 1978, tells the story of two J.R.R. Tolkien books, The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers. In the live-action versions by Jackson, those films are linked by Gandalf’s battle with the massive Balrog in the Mines of Moria. Bakshi’s film has a version of that battle, but it’s very sparse and, frankly, pretty cheesy.
Now, after 36 years on the cutting room floor, Bakshi’s full early vision of the epic showdown has come to light via lost animation cells Check out some Lord of the Rings lost footage below. Read More »
Back to the Future: Part II opens with the ending scene from the first movie. But anyone who has seen the movie more than once will know that the sequence was completely reshot. I’m sure there are a multitude of reasons why they didn’t just use the same footage, including the fact that Claudia Wells, who played Marty McFly’s girlfriend Jennifer Parker in the original film, had been recast with 1980’s movie hottie Elizabeth Shue. Also, the movie was shot nearly five years later, so they probably wanted Marty and Doc’s appearances to seem consistant with the rest of the film. But even then, they needed to try to make the reshot sequence look almost exactly the same as what was shown in the original film. The “a rejuvenation clinic” excuse Doc gives Marty once they arrive in 2015 was likely a excuse to get rid of the old man make-up Christopher Lloyd was forced to wear in the 1985 scenes of the original film.
Justin Taormina has put together a video comparing this repeated sequence. Hit the jump to watch it now. Read More »
