spider-man into the spider-verse b-roll

Voice acting is an undervalued profession, one that we don’t get to see much of unless it’s a star-studded affair like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

But the newly released Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse b-roll footage gives us a peek behind the curtain, where stars Shameik Moore, Hailee Steinfeld, Jake Johnson, Liev Schreiber, Brian Tyree Henry, Luna Lauren, John Mulaney, and Kimiko Glenn apparently act in full hair and make-up. But no one is as extra as Nicolas Cage, who shows up in a full suit and gives his whole being into voicing his character.

Beauty and the Beast ride

You know that feeling when you’re lounging around, watching the Disney animated classic Beauty and the Beast, and thinking to yourself, “Man, I wish I could be inside that ballroom while Belle and the Beast bust a move on that slick-ass dance floor”?

Take a look at some early footage from the new Beauty and the Beast ride, which will be the first ever ride-through attraction based on the 1991 movie. Read More »

the lego batman movie 2

Did anyone else assume that a sequel to 2017’s The LEGO Batman Movie had already been announced? I could have sworn that Warner Animation Group had given a sequel the go-ahead, but it turns out that no announcement ever came through official channels – that is, until director Chris McKay revealed on Twitter that he’s working on The LEGO Batman Movie 2 “right now.”

del Toro Pinocchio

If you were hoping the stop-motion Guillermo del Toro Pinocchio movie coming to Netflix would turn out to be family entertainment like the Disney version, think again. The Oscar-winning filmmaker, who has been trying to get this film made for years, recently confirmed that the adaptation is to be political, and not geared specifically towards children. Of course, with del Toro involved, you probably could’ve guessed that.

spider-man into the spider-verse peter parker

A major part of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is about the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man we’ve known and loved for the past two decades, Peter Parker, passing the mantle to the younger Miles Morales (Shameik Moore). So wouldn’t it have been fitting for Peter Parker to be played by the first actor to bring the character to life on the big screen? Well, it turns out that Tobey Maguire, who played the webslinger in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy from 2002 to 2007, was considered for the part that ultimately went to Jake Johnson.

Into the Spider-Verse technique

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which has earned rave reviews so far, is being hailed as the best animated movie of 2018. That comes down to a matter of taste, which makes the claim debatable. But here’s something that’s definitely not up for debate: this film doesn’t look like any other animated feature.

So how exactly did directors Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman achieve that look? I sat down with them last week and asked them about their visual Into the Spider-Verse technique, and while the full interview will be published closer to the film’s release, their answer to that question is worth highlighting now.
