James Newton Howard’s Pawn Sacrifice Score To Be Released On Sept. 11

2 September 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Coming to theaters in two weeks is director Ed Zwick’s riveting Pawn Sacrifice.

It’s the story of Bobby Fischer, America’s foremost chess player, who faced the reigning champion, Boris Spassky of Russia, in a series of matches that held the world spellbound.

For fans of 1972’s “Match of the Century,” the film is everything you’re hoping for. Zwick’s movie is flawless right down to the re-enactment of the 1971 interview with Dick Cavett.

Bobby Fischer first makes waves in the elite world of chess as a 6-year-old whiz-kid from Brooklyn famous for his laser-like concentration and ability to dominate all challengers. By his teens, the boy wonder has gone from chess savant to international grandmaster, but his meteoric rise is punctuated by unpredictable personal behavior and escalating demands that raise hackles in the conservative chess establishment.

As he travels the globe with manager Paul Marshall (Michael Stuhlbarg »

Cooper (1893-1973) and Ernest B. Schoedsack (1893-1979) with a retrospective cycle dedicated to their films.

Jurassic World Scribe Sets Sail For Legendary’s Kong: Skull Island

19 August 2015 8:57 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Having wrapped up script duties on Isla Nublar and Colin Trevorrow’s box office behemoth Jurassic World, screenwriter Derek Connolly is ready to set sail for a new resort according to The Hollywood Reporter, with Legendary’s Kong: Skull Island now smack bang between his crosshairs.

With filming set to kickoff later this year, it’s understood that the extent of Connolly’s work will be relatively minor, adding an extra sheen of polish before the cameras begin rolling on the film’s Hawaiian set – it’ll also shoot in Vietnam and Iceland. Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ creature feature has been doing the rounds across some of the industry’s more notable writing talents, with Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein, John Gatins and Dan Gilroy all contributing to the screenplay over the past few months.

Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Corey Hawkins are currently locked down for the daring expedition, after Kong: Skull Island »

‘The Flash’: VFX Supervisor Armen Kevorkian on Bringing Gorilla Grodd to Life

13 August 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Translating some of DC Comics’ most iconic villains from the page to the screen is always daunting for the creative team behind “The Flash.” But none more so than Grodd, an 800-lb. gorilla with psychic abilities and genius intellect who goes toe-to-toe with the CW show’s super-powered hero just as believably as the series’ human antagonists.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” and Peter Jackson’s “King Kong” have raised expectations for viewers accustomed to seeing photo-real creatures on screen, and yet “Flash” visual effects supervisor Armen Kevorkian and his team at Encore Hollywood eschewed the motion-capture approach utilized by those blockbusters in favor of computer animation.

“We start from scratch — that way we have total control,” Kevorkian says. “We have some really talented animators here and it was just a matter of me demonstrating what I thought the scene needed, what the shot needed, and going through »

A brief history of cinema practical effects, in 10 films

12 August 2015 3:43 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

From George Melies through to Peter Jackson and Jj Abrams' Star Wars film, the rise, fall and rise of practical effects explored...

From the very earliest days of cinema, practical effects have been the big draw for audiences. The very first films may have wowed the crowds with images of trains pulling into a station, but it was the fantastical made real that fired the imaginations of millions, and led to film as we know it - narrative flights of fancy which have entertained and made us gasp for well over 100 years. But the last 25 years have seen practical effects fall by the wayside.

Digital effects created in a computer took over, and allowed filmmakers to dream even bigger. But practical effects are beginning to make a comeback. Some of this is due to audiences feeling the CG burnout; no longer quite believing what they’re seeing, resulting in »

Samuel L. Jackson Vs King Kong On Skull Island!

7 August 2015 3:48 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

tumblr

It’s only been a few weeks since Michael Keaton and J.K Simmons left T-rex sized holes in the cast of Legendary’s Kong: Skull Island, but it seems two new Hollywood behemoths are ready to bridge the gap. Empire Online is reporting that both Samuel L. Jackson (Hollywood’s busiest man) and Tom Wilkinson are in talks for the blockbuster.

Jackson is reportedly filling Simmons’ shoes (word on the street is he’s a bad guy), whilst Wilkinson will take on another prominent role, albeit not the one left by Keaton.

Keaton and Simmons are a little more excitingly placed in the zeitgeist right now following their turns in some of last year’s best movies, but there’s no denying Wilkinson and Jackson can be the bomb. They certainly have the big credits (Sam Jackson is famously in every movie, ever) and might even lend much »

Avengers Star Samuel L. Jackson In Talks For Kong: Skull Island

6 August 2015 7:34 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

According to Deadline, Samuel L. Jackson (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), John C. Reilly (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins) are all in early talks to star in Legendary Pictures' Kong: Skull Island. The site reports that Jackson would take over the role vacated by Jk Simmons, and Reilly tops a "small list" of actors that are being lined up to replace Michael Keaton. Wilkinson has apparently been offered a different lead role.  Though the movie has been referred to as an origin story for the great ape, it's also been called a reboot and is not expected to tie into Peter Jackson's 2005 King Kong remake. The plot will focus on "a team of explorers venturing deep inside the treacherous, primordial island." Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce with Alex Garcia, and Eric McLeod is on board as exec producer. Universal Pictures will »

Watch: Supercuts Run Down the Worst Special and Practical Effects

15 July 2015 2:34 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Special effects have come a long way in a very short amount of time, and that becomes especially obvious after taking a look at the two videos below. The first is a supercut of the worst special effects of all-time, highlighting scenes from Deep Blue Sea (1999), The Mummy Returns (2001), King Kong (2005) and more. Funny thing is, I saw all three of those movies in theaters and it isn't until looking back at them in this video that I recognize how poor their effects are. Will there come a time where we do the same with today's filmsc The second video is yet another super cut, this one focused specifically on the ten worst practical effects of all-time. It contains a few honorable mentions in the form of the dam jump in The Fugitive (1993) and the bed scene in Howard the Duck (1986), among others, but here are the ten films that »

A trip to the newest Universal ride has us thinking about the park's big changes

2 July 2015 1:30 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

As I wrote in one of my "25 Years In La" pieces, I was a tour guide at Universal Studios. Technically, we were "studio guides," and in my time at the park, I did many different jobs. I was Leatherface for a full run of Halloween Horror Nights, and I managed to win a nod for "Best Scare" at the end of the event. That doesn't really mean anything, but it felt great at the end of a really tough eleven or twelve straight days. I worked "Backdraft" when it was an attraction that took up a full soundstage, and I made up my own slightly insane tweaks to the script that entertained me, if no one else. My friend and I figured out where we could stand in the "E.T." ride so we could say names to it at the beginning of the ride, since the end of the ride »
