aladdin clip

Before Aladdin was released theaters earlier this year to the tune of $1 billion worldwide, it seemed odd to pair director Guy Ritchie with the remake of the Middle Eastern-set Disney animated classic. But once the star Mena Massoud started crooning the lines to “One Jump Ahead,” it all immediately became clear. The stylish filmmaker, best known for his rapid-fire dialogue and editing combined with artful slow and fast-motion, put all of his techniques on display in the sequence for “One Jump Ahead,” which follows the titular street rat as he and an undercover Princess Jasmine (Naomi Scott) evade capture through the streets of Agrabah.

/Film has an exclusive Aladdin clip showcasing the techniques in this sequence, ahead of the film’s upcoming Digital and Blu-ray release. Watch the Aladdin clip below.

You can see how they did it with the character known as “The Corpse” in the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark make-up featurette below. Read More »

Now, a new Gemini Man featurette shows how they’re duplicating Will Smith and giving us a version of the actor we haven’t seen on screen since the 1990s.
