Marvel's Victoria Alonso was the keynote speaker at yesterday's Visual Effects Society Production Summit at the W Hollywood, where she revealed that the highly-anticipated sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron has over 3,000 visual effects shots, the most of any movie in Marvel history. This breaks the studio's record of 2,750 VFX shots held by this year's Guardians of the Galaxy, while Captain America: The Winter Soldier had over 2,500 visual effects shots.
She also revealed that the studio will use between seven and 12 visual effects companies in five to seven different countries for Avengers: Age of Ultron, which is currently in post-production. She also addressed the need to hire more women in the visual effects industry.
"There's a lot of you boys out there. Where are the girls? You need to get them here. It's better when it's 50/50. It's okay to allow the ladies in; they are talented and bring you balance. We »
“We were headed for the edge of sanity, like we were apparitions, phantoms,” Brendan Gleeson narrates over haunting vfx in the first trailer for Ron Howard’s “In the Heart of the Sea.” “Trust gave way to doubt. Hope to superstition.”
Chris Hemsworth battles a bull sperm whale — and personal demons — in the movie based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s book, “In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex,” about the real-life story that inspired Herman Melville’s “Moby Dick.”
Hemsworth stars as the first mate of the Essex, a ship struck by a gigantic whale in 1819, leaving its crew shipwrecked and stranded for 90 days, thousands of miles from home. After the attack, the sailors head to South America and are forced to resort to cannibalism to survive.

A new piece of promo art for Avengers: Age of Ultron has hit the web. Courtesy of ComicBookMovie.com, the art seems to come from Hot Toys, and shows Earth’s Mightiest Heroes lined up with their respective heights listed. It also features an infuriatingly blanked-out look at Vision, Ultron himself, and the long-awaited Hulkbuster armor. Check it out…
While the art doesn’t show much, it does give us an idea of how the Hulkbuster and Ultron will compare to the Avengers. It will be mighty hard for the likes of Iron Man and Captain America to take down the 8 foot tall Ultron, but will Hulk be able to hold his own against Tony’s 11 foot Hulkbuster armor? We’ll just have to wait until Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters to find out…
Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for release in the UK on April 24th 2015 and »

Avengers: Age of Ultron will soon start dumping a ton of toys in stores near you, which means we'll get our first look at a lot of things from the movie in plastic or promo art form. While we've seen Hulkbuster in previous movie concept art, a new image, reportedly from Hot Toys, shows off the full-scale of this weapon designed by Tony Stark to control and capture an outraged Hulk.
We also get a look at all of the characters and their full sizes in this scale chart. It reveals that the 8'5" Hulk will have to contend with an 11' Hulkbuster, which sounds like quite a fight. How will Hulk be able to beat back this iron monstrosity? It also reveals that Ultron stands at a quite tall 8', just 5 inches shorter than the green goliath. Black Widow is the shortest of all Avengers, standing at just 5' »
Infuriatingly, Vision, Hulkbuster and Ultron are all blanked out in the image which seemingly originates from Hot Toys/Sideshow Collectibles. We do at least get a decent look at the costumes worn by the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Age of Ultron as well as how they all match up in terms of size. The image originates from here, though we have to thank @galliettd for the heads up! What do you guys think about this latest piece of promo art? Sound off below! Click on the image below to view the slightly larger version. Avengers: Age of Ultron stars Chris Evans, Chris Hemsworth, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Cobie Smulders, Paul Bettany, James Spader, and Samuel L. Jackson, and is set to be released on May 1st, 2015. »

Industrial Light & Magic, the in-house effects company established by George Lucas in 1975, is still one of the leading forces in the industry and is responsible for working on some of the biggest movies over the past five decades. They are currently working on director Joss Whedon's superhero sequel Avengers: Age of Ultron and will begin working on Star Wars: Episode VII in just a few short weeks as principal photography wraps on J.J. Abrams sci-fi epic. Both movies are expected to push boundaries and break new ground at Ilm.
Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm means Ilm will be working on more Disney movies, including all of those Marvel sequels and spin-offs that are planned throughout the rest of this decade. To celebrate, and for work purposes, the company has launched a new studio in London, and held a grand opening this past week. President Lynwen Brennan was there to speak with IGN, »
Watch the first trailer for Ron Howard’s action adventure In The Heart Of The Sea, based on Nathaniel Philbrick’s best-selling book about the dramatic true journey of the Essex. The film is scheduled to open on March 13, 2015 in theatres and IMAX.
In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance.
In The Heart Of The Sea reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. Braving storms, starvation, panic and despair, the men will call into question their deepest beliefs, from the value of their lives to the morality of their trade, »

In today’s cinematic battle to the death, we’ve got Chris Hemsworth – the God of Thunder himself – squaring off against the great white whale known and feared in high school English classes across the country: Moby Dick. Let’s get ready to rumble with this new trailer for In the Heart of the Sea. The upcoming feature, starring Hemsworth and directed by Ron Howard, is based on the true story that inspired Herman Melville’s classic whaling novel. Hemsworth and his shipmates set sail only to encounter the vengeful whale and engage in a fight for survival. Here’s how Visual Effects Supervisor Jody Johnson describes the creature: “He's kind of like Clint Eastwood. He's a high plains drifter. He comes and helps out his own...

As a title, In the Heart of the Sea doesn't really capture the intense action and drama of Ron Howard's upcoming seafaring movie, which stars Chris Hemsworth as an early 19th-century whaler locked in combat with a gigantic sperm whale. At some point during the trailer, which points out that the true disaster tale contributed to Melville's inspiration for Moby Dick, the leviathan runs deep after being harpooned by the crew of the S.S. Essex—toppling masts and sending the ship sideways. You almost expect the level-headed member of the crew to mutter, "Ye shall require a bigger boat, »

A collection of new posters for upcoming films has landed online. Briefly: In the Heart of the Sea – The first trailer for Ron Howard's telling of the tragedy of the Whaleship Essex landed earlier today, and now we have one of my favorite posters of the year. It's ominous without being overbearing. The film opens March 13, 2015, and stars Chris Hemsworth, Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, Ben Whishaw, and Brendan Gleeson. Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb – Meanwhile, we have a contestant in the running for worst poster of the year. I don't know if this is an awful photoshop job or if everyone is supposed to look like a cardboard cutout. The film opens December 19th, and stars Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Owen Wilson, Dan Stevens, Ben Kingsley, and as you can see from the poster, lots and lots of other people as well as a monkey with keys. »

In the winter of 1820, the New England whaling ship Essex was assaulted by something no one could believe: a whale of mammoth size and will, and an almost human sense of vengeance. The real-life maritime disaster would inspire Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick. But that told only half the story. “Heart of the Sea” reveals the encounter’s harrowing aftermath, as the ship’s surviving crew is pushed to their limits and forced to do the unthinkable to stay alive. »

The movie also stars Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy,Tom Holland, Brendan Gleesan Spanish actor Jordi Mollà and Ben Whishaw as novelist Herman Melville. ...Read More »
I never pictured Ron Howard as much of a Roland Emmerich guy, but that's the unexpected spirit exploding off the trailer for his latest film, "In the Heart of the Sea." The film tells the true story the American whaleship "Essex" and its ill-fated run-in with a mighty sperm whale in November 1820. The story became the basis for Herman Melville's contemplative novel "Moby Dick." Howard's version of the story looks more like that time the Kraken ate Jack Sparrow, a beefed up, seafaring 'Apollo 13.' That's not bad thing. Staring Chris Hemsworth as First Mate Owen Chase, the film recounts the crew's experience surviving the Jaws-on-steroids high seas encounter. Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Ben Whishaw, Jordi Molla are all aboard as costars, with Tom Holland and Brendan Gleeson playing young and old versions of the narrator. Charles Leavitt ("Blood Diamond," upcoming "Warcraft") wrote the original draft of the script, »

Ron Howard and Chris Hemsworth have reunited for In the Heart of the Sea, a film based on the real life sinking of the whaling ship Essex in 1820 by a bull sperm whale and Nathaniel Philbrick’s non-fiction book of the same name. The incident served as inspiration for Herman Melville’s classic novel, Moby-Dick. Hemsworth plays the ship’s first mate, while Benjamin Walker, Cillian Murphy, Tom Holland, and Brendan Gleeson fill out the rest of the cast. Howard is not known for making the darkest of films, so it will be interesting to see how morbid this film gets, given the very bleak turn the true story actually got. The film looks like it could be one to look out for when it is released on March 15th, 2015.

It's taken more than ten years for Hollywood to adapt In the Heart of the Sea, Nathaniel Philbrick's National Book Award–winning tale of the whaling expedition that inspired Moby-Dick, but now, thanks to Ron Howard, the movie is finally here.
