Faerie Evil: The Making of Maleficent

24 June 2014 11:14 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with director Robert Stromberg, production visual effects supervisor Carey Villegas, visual effects supervisors Seth Maury and Kelly Port, digital effects supervisor Darren Hendler, and previs supervisor Mark Nelson about reviving a Disney classic…

“There are not many production designers/visual effects people who have made the leap which doesn’t make sense to me because it seems like the perfect breeding ground to moving up into directing,” reflects filmmaker Robert Stromberg who started as a matte painter and became the Oscar-winning production designer for Avatar [2009] and Alice in Wonderland [2010].  “On Master and Commander [2003] I met Peter Weir and we hit it off.  I came in as a Visual Effects Supervisor and spent so much time with Peter that I became a liaison between him and Ilm.   We started talking about other things especially about characters and what it is like to direct.  I learned so much from »

18 June 2014 4:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Summit Entertainment has released an official synopsis for Gods of Egypt, director Alex Proyas’ (Dark City) fantasy adventure, which stars Gerard Butler (Olympus Has Fallen), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game of Thrones), Brenton Thwaites (Maleficent), Chadwick Boseman (42), Elodie Yung (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) and Geoffrey Rush (The Book Thief):

Magic, monsters, gods and madness reign throughout the palaces and pyramids of the Nile River Valley in this action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt.

First Artwork And Synopsis For Alex Proyas' Gods Of Egypt

17 June 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Fans have become a bit jaded when it comes to these mythology-based fantasy epics (thanks Clash/Wrath Of The Titans), but can Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City), and a very impressive (though decidedly non-Egyptian looking) cast change that? Below we have the first artwork and an exciting sounding synopsis. Magic, monsters, gods and madness reign throughout the palaces and pyramids of the Nile River Valley in this action-adventure inspired by the classic mythology of Egypt. With the survival of mankind hanging in the balance, an unexpected hero takes a thrilling journey to save the world and rescue his true love. Set (Gerard Butler), the merciless god of darkness, has usurped Egypt’s throne, plunging the once peaceful and prosperous empire into chaos and conflict.

‘Dracula Untold’ First Look Image & Poster: Dracula Begins

16 June 2014 10:27 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Not too long ago, NBC premiered a new Dracula series, featuring Jonathan Rhys Meyers as the title character. The TV show re-imagined Bram Stoker’s iconic vampire as being more of a dark superhero, who faces off against an evil order hell-bent on (secretly) controlling the world – and though it had camp entertainment value, it failed to attract the viewership numbers required to secure a second season. We’ll see if Universal has more luck with its cinematic re-imagining, Dracula Untold (see the first look image, above).

Dracula Untold was, once upon a time, formerly known as Dracula Year Zero, with Sam Worthington set to star and Alex Proyas (Dark City) onboard to call the shots. The basic premise is still the same ...

David S. Goyer Boards James Cameron’s ‘Fantastic Voyage’

2 May 2014 8:15 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Who would you want to direct an action-packed journey around the human body? While I’m tempted to say David Cronenberg, the answer “James Cameron” is probably the more solid proposition and just as well, as his remake of 1966′s Fantastic Voyage has reportedly shifted a little further along the digestive tract with the news that David S. Goyer is on treatment duty.

The story concerns a team of scientists who are miniaturized onto a tiny submarine and despatched into the body of a defected Russian scientist to ensure his survival and obtain his secrets. Richard Fleischer’s original film featured the eclectic casting of Raquel Welch (One Million Years BC) and Donald Pleasence (Halloween) and had the distinction of being novelized by sci-fi master Isaac Asimov (I, Robot). An interesting parallel to Cameron, who hired respected author Orson Scott Card (Ender’S Game) to write up The Abyss back »

What to Watch: Feb. 18-24, 2014

18 February 2014 10:05 AM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

What an amazing week for TV fans. As if you didn’t have enough stacking to do with the new, brilliant season of “House of Cards” on Netflix, there are four other full seasons in this week’s What to Watch that you really should watch front to back. And then there’s the still-amazing “Darkman,” a cult classic that perfectly captures Sam Raimi’s skill at controlled chaos. Finally, we have two ’80s horror flicks in one set in “Bad Dreams” and “Visiting Hours.” Check ‘em all out (Ok, you can skip the genre stinkers).

Exclusive: Patrick Tatopoulos is excited to be part of Batman vs. Superman

12 February 2014 6:20 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

“I’m working in Detroit on Batman vs. Superman [2016] and its super cold there,” states Patrick Tatopoulos (Dark City) who along with surviving a polar vortex which has swept North America is handling the production design for the project which brings together the two iconic DC superheroes. “At the end of 300: Rise of an Empire [2014] I met with Zack [Snyder] and he said, ‘I going to do this movie and want you to design it.’  I was stunned.  I thought, ‘Wow! Great.’  That’s where it started.  This is a crazy huge movie.  It’s taking a lot of energy but it’s something that someone like me needs to do in his lifetime.” 

“There’s a project that is close to me that I was going to direct and I said, ‘I need to do this,’” reveals Tatopoulos, who also helmed Underworld: Rise of the Lycons (2009).  “Working with »

Transcendence and the return of the 90s cyber thriller

9 January 2014 9:45 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Feature Ryan Lambie 10 Jan 2014 - 15:08

With tech thriller Transcendence out this year, Hollywood seems to be revisiting its 90s fascination with virtual reality, Ryan writes...

Like seasons, hairstyles and fashion, genre popularity in Hollywood runs in cycles. Historical epics have faded in and out of favour since the 1930s, for example, and appear to be on the rise again, with Ridley Scott’s Exodus, Darren Aronofsky’s Noah and two movies based on the Hercules legend all on the horizon. It's not just historical epics making a comeback, either. With Wally Pfister's directorial debut Transcendence, we could be in for a mini revival of the cyber thrillers of the 1990s.

If you don't know anything about Transcendence yet, you can catch up with the first trailer here. Briefly, it's about a scientist (Johnny Depp) who's killed by terrorists shortly after completing some groundbreaking research into machine intelligence. Grief stricken, »
