Avengers: Infinity War is now available on Blu-ray and DVD, and to mark the occasion, Marvel Studios has released some clips from the superhero sequel’s special features.

Thanos visual effects

13 visual effects vendors collaborated to make 18 digital characters for Avengers: Infinity War, and Josh Brolin‘s villainous Thanos is the most important of them all. The entire movie hinges on that performance, and if you don’t buy him as a living, breathing character, Marvel would have had their own Steppenwolf problem to deal with. Thankfully, Thanos ended up being one of the best CGI villains in cinema history – thanks in large part to the hard-working team at VFX company Digital Domain.

To promote the superhero sequel’s home video release, /Film was invited to take a tour of the company’s L.A. facility and learn the steps they took to bring the Mad Titan to life. I brought a couple of cameras along and put together an in-depth video about how the Thanos visual effects were created and incorporated into the movie.

This goes far beyond those videos that simply show a scene with one VFX layer at a time added into the final version. This is detailed stuff, and I hope you check it out below. Read More »

Jack Ryan featurette

The late Tom Clancy‘s novels are famous for the level of technical accuracy and specific details he would insert to give readers a sense of authenticity. So it’s no surprise that Jack Ryan, Amazon’s new streaming series about Clancy’s most famous character, is aspiring to that same level of specificity on the small screen.

In this new Jack Ryan featurette, we take a look behind the scenes at the new John Krasinski-led show and see interviews with the showrunners, military advisors, and more to find out the lengths to which the production went in order to make the audience feel immersed in a grounded, realistic world.

jungle cruise set

The Jungle Cruise ride was one of Walt Disney’s first pet projects, a Disney Parks attraction that simulated a riverboat cruise down several major rivers of Asia, Africa and South America. And legend has it that Walt Disney himself was the very first skipper for the ride’s opening day — which is probably why Dwayne Johnson and the team behind the upcoming Jungle Cruise movie have put so much heart and soul into the live-action adaptation of Disney’s beloved attraction.

In a new teaser video from the set, Johnson hypes up the movie once again, giving viewers a sneak peek of the awe-inspiring Jungle Cruise set.
