15 December 2011 4:15 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

British filmmaker Tim Burke’s The Bigger Picture Films production of the feature film L.A. Slasher is under way, and we have a teaser trailer for the serial killer project right here as well as word on the production, some exclusive stills, and more.

Set in the near future and with the tagline of "In the City of Angels, Some People Will Die to Be Famous," the narrative of L.A. Slasher follows the exploits of the titular character, a figure who for nefarious reasons (to be revealed – Tim Burke is keeping mum on that for now) "...abducts a series of fame-obsessed wannabe reality stars and assists them in their quest for celebrity by digitally distributing the torture and murder of the quartet to the Internet. As the clue-ridden video clips go viral, the Lapd and one very inquisitive viewer find themselves engaged in a desperate game of cat »

15 Films Fight for Oscars 2012 Visual Effects Noms, So Long "Immortals!"

10 December 2011 12:46 PM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

The Academy has picked fifteen films for the Visual Effects category. Out of the fifteen, ten will be chosen in early January, then five for the final nominations to be announced January 25.

If we're going to predict which films will be included in the final five, we're thinking "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2," "Hugo," "Rise of the Planet of the Apes," "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" (because for some reason, the Academy loves honoring "Transformers" in this category -- big, clashing eye candy!), and the critics-darling "The Tree of Life."

We'll find out January 25th if our Oscar crystal ball is accurate. For now, here are the 15 films vying for nominations (in alphabetical order):

"Captain America: The First Avenger" (Marvel/Paramount) Marvel VFX supervisor: Christopher Townsend

"Cowboys & Aliens" (DreamWorks/Universal) Ilm VFX supervisors: Roger Guyett and Eddie Pasquarello

“A Look Back” Harry Potter Featurette

10 July 2011 6:10 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2,” is the final adventure in the Harry Potter film series. To be released on July 15th, the much-anticipated motion picture event is the second of two full-length parts.

In the epic finale, the battle between the good and evil forces of the wizarding world escalates into an all-out war. The stakes have never been higher and no one is safe. But it is Harry Potter who may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice as he draws closer to the climactic showdown with Lord Voldemort.

It all ends here in this nostalgic, albeit wistful, video of the Harry Potter films. Sigh

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2″ stars Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, reprising their roles as Harry Potter, Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. The film’s ensemble cast also includes Helena Bonham Carter, Robbie Coltrane, Warwick Davis, Tom Felton, »

Ten years of making Harry Potter films, by cast and crew

7 July 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The actors, producers, directors and crew of the Harry Potter series tell Ryan Gilbey the inside story of the defining film franchise of the last decade

Tanya Seghatchian, co-producer/executive producer, Harry Potter 1-4: I started working with David Heyman at Heyday Films in 1997. We had a deal with Warner Bros to be the eyes and ears of the studio in the UK. I remember a friend of mine, Tony Garnett, who produced Kes, saying to me: "Listen, this deal will only last if you find Warners the equivalent of the Bond franchise." I read an article on a book that was due to be published, about a boy who discovers he's a wizard. It said it was going to be one in a series – so that's a franchise. I rang Christopher Little, Jo Rowling's agent, to introduce myself and win him over if I could.

Harry Potter FX Supervisor Talks ‘Good’ 3D for ‘Deathly Hallows Part 2′

29 June 2011 10:20 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

One of the most refreshing things about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 was the filmmakers’ decision to not upconvert the film to 3D. And, if hard box office numbers are anything to go by, it didn’t seem to hurt the film’s reception one iota.

Alas, we were not so lucky with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2, which has gone through that post-conversion 3D process and will probably be released in more 3D theaters than 2D. Still, there’s hope yet for a quality 3D experience, as Harry Potter Visual Effects Supervisor Tim Burke recently praised the final film’s 3D.

29 June 2011 7:41 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The 3D conversion of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 will leave fans "really impressed", according to the visual effects supervisor on the series. Tim Burke admitted that he knows some fans and industry critics are a "little nervous and sceptical" of 3D conversions, but insisted that the final film in the series will leave people pleased. "I think it's good, actually," he told the La Times of the 3D version. "I think people are going to be really pleased. I know everyone's a little nervous and sceptical of 3D these days, but the work has been done very, very well. "We've done over 200 shots in 3D and in the visual effects as well, because so much of it is CG, so the results are very, very good. I think everyone's going to be really impressed with (more) »

The Board of Governors also decided to extend an invitation to Restrepo codirector Tim Hetherington, the first time Academy membership has been bestowed posthumously.

Penrith cinema wins closure battle

6 April 2011 4:42 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Alhambra cinema in Cumbrian town granted 10-year lease after Hollywood-backed campaign raises more than £150,000

A Hollywood-backed campaign to save an English country cinema has triumphed, just as fundraisers looked to be facing an impossible task.

Widespread enthusiasm in the Cumbrian market town of Penrith galvanised a string of stars to buy shares or sign a petition to keep the Edwardian Alhambra open, while locals ran special screenings and raised more than £150,000.

The 100-year-old building faced sale and probable demolition in spite of running at a profit, because a bingo hall that shares the site has suffered "unacceptable" losses over the past three years.

But the landlord of both businesses, Graves (Cumberland), has reversed its insistence that the whole building be sold for development and has offered the Alhambra a 10-year lease.

A Graves spokesman, Vince Hughes, said: "Closing both Penrith cinema and the Opera bingo club was never a decision we wanted to make, »

Behind the scenes of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II

19 March 2011 3:19 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Everyone is starting to get excited about Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows: Part II, the film that will be the very last Potter film… ever, and the folks at Warner Brothers have sent us (via You Tube) a brand new behind-the-scenes look at the highly anticipated movie.

Here’s the official synopsis:

“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” the seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, is a much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts.

Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction—the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart. »

Horror at the Oscars Part III

12 March 2011 4:25 PM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Tremors? Nightbreed? Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat? 976-evil? Are all on the list this year. And though there were not huge horror wins in sound editing through screenplays, the Technical Awards never cease to bring out the horror veterans. Notably Tim Drnec who contributed to such VHS classics as Alien Seed, Destroyer, and Prison won for his work on “Spydercam 3D volumetric suspended cable camera technologies.” An award also shared with Ben Britten Smith and Matt Davis who both also worked on Constantine.

But among all the winners, the Academy also honored some great loses in 2010. And though they mentioned some of our heroes, Dennis Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2), Kevin McCarthy (Invasion of the Body Snatchers) and Dino de Laurentiis (King Kong), they did not mention Zelda Rubinstein or Corey Haim. But we will in this last section and the others lost to us last year.

So farewell fight fans and remember, »

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2: making the Hogwarts battle

23 February 2011 11:27 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The effects supervisor for Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2 has been revealing how one of the film’s key sequences has been tackled…

Please note: if you have no idea at all of what's coming up in the final Harry Potter film, then it's best to give this article a miss.

An interesting new interview with visual effects supervisor, Tim Burke, has appeared online, in which he chats about his work on the upcoming Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 2.

Burke, who has scored an Oscar nomination for his quite brilliant work on Part 1 (the opening half hour of that film, I maintain, is terrific, even if the following two hours is much harder work), has been chatting about putting together one of the major sequences for the last Potter film.

We're talking about the mass battle of Hogwarts, which has seen Burke and his team recreate »
