Spider-Man Into the Spider-Verse concept art

When I spoke with producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller about Sony’s spectacular Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Miller told me about the filmmakers’ stylistic approach to the movie. “The idea was, you always see these amazing ‘art of’ books that have these very stylistic, impressionistic paintings that are so beautiful, and then they go through a pipeline and become a CG movie that looks similar to other CG movies. And we were like, ‘Why can’t we make it look more like the actual concept art, but actually like that concept art?'”

Now some of the film’s concept art has made its way online, and you can take a look at some alternate versions of Miles Morales (voice of Shameik Moore), Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld), Aunt May (Lily Tomlin), and more. And yes, you pervs, there’s a naked version of Jake Johnson‘s Peter B. Parker.

game of thrones ice spiders

In George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire novels, he wrote a scene in which Bran Stark’s nanny, who’s nicknamed Old Nan, tells the little lord a story about The Long Night, a deadly period of Westerosi history in which a cold, hard winter fell that was “endless beyond all memory of man.” Old Nan explains that the terrifying White Walkers hunted with their “packs of pale white spiders big as hounds.” A slightly altered version of the scene appeared in season one of HBO’s Game of Thrones, laying the groundwork for those icy eight-legged creatures to appear in the show at some point.

Now, with the eighth and final season set to debut in April, Martin has released our first-ever look at the ice spiders from his fantasy series. Take a look below. Read More »

the predator concept art

Remember The Predator? Shane Black‘s sequel/reboot hit theaters this year, but it seems like everyone already forgot about it already. Maybe we’d all still be talking about The Predator right now if it had kept one of the script’s early ideas intact: Predator-monkey hybrids. That’s right – at one point, The Predator was going to feature Predator DNA mixed with monkeys and other animals. But it never came to pass. Instead we got Thomas Jane telling terrible jokes! See The Predator concept art below.

force awakens concept art

Not to open up a can of worms, but one of the major complaints regarding Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the way the film handled Luke Skywalker’s story arc. Several fans were outraged that Luke would be hiding out on an island, ignoring his friends. The blame fell squarely on Rian Johnson, with many accusing him of not understanding Luke as a character. But here’s a twist: newly surfaced concept art created before both The Last Jedi and The Force Awakens proves that this was the direction Luke’s story was heading all along. In fact, it might have even had a darker twist.  Read More »

force awakens luke skywalker

Luke Skywalker remained out of sight, but never out of mind, through much of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Then he appeared as a bearded Mark Hamill in the final few seconds of the film. But we almost saw a glimpse of Luke earlier in the film, through the tumultuous vision that Rey receives when she picks up Luke’s long lost lightsaber. The twist: he wouldn’t have been played by Hamill but by actor Robert Boulter, in a re-enactment of the famous The Empire Strikes Back duel.

And now, we know what he would’ve looked like.

The film stars Keri Russell in her first major horror feature role, as well as Jesse Plemons and young actor Jeremy T. Thomas. The production remains under an intriguing veil of secrecy, except for a handful of images posted on the production’s Instagram teasing a haunting, eerie film.

ant-man and the wasp concept art

Although the Quantum Realm played a pivotal part in the plot of Ant-Man and the Wasp, we still don’t know much about this realm. Only reachable when Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) shrinks so impossibly small that he enters a whole other dimension, the Quantum Realm was meant to be impossible to escape — which is why the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) has spent the past 31 years stuck there.

But how did Janet van Dyne survive this abstract, nightmarish realm? By turning into a road warrior-cum-desert nomad it seems — all worn threads and cool steampunk-y masks. But the original Ant-Man and the Wasp concept art for Janet van Dyne was completely different, and suggests an intriguing expanded story for the Quantum Realm.
