VFX Summit Dublin: In service of the story

14 December 2014 7:00 AM, PST | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

At the second VFX + Animation Summit Dublin, international experts and growing local companies gathered to talk about issues such as global competition, tight schedules and training needs. Wendy Mitchell reports.

As Ireland’s VFX and animation industries continue to grow steadily, international experts have reminded the sector that competing in a global marketplace is not just about skills and technical prowess.

“The role of the VFX industry is to help stories; it’s important we embed storytelling from the beginning,” said Darren O’Kelly, MD of London-based The Mill, in his keynote address that kicked off the VFX + Animation Summit Dublin (November 29-30). “We must not let VFX and animation become a substitute for great stories.”

He continued: “I feel for some of our comrades who worked on projects like John Carter; there were absolutely breathtaking effects but a film like that gets neglected after a poor opening weekend… Unless we’re connecting with audiences we’re irrelevant »

This international trailer for Jupiter Ascending shares new action scenes

25 November 2014 2:39 AM, PST | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The Wachowskis have a daunting task with Jupiter Ascending. How can you convince audiences to buy into an entirely new fictional universe that could launch a potential franchise? Despite being pushed almost a year from it's original summer 2014 release, the studio is likely hoping this will be their Guardians Of The Galaxy rather than a bomb the size of John Carter. We have had two trailers released so far but neither has delved into the machinations behind how the characters end up where »

21 November 2014 1:15 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Ridley Scott’s epic Exodus: Gods And Kings opens in theaters in three weeks.

Jessica Chastain currently stars in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar where she plays a scientist trying to save humanity from extinction.

One year from now, Scott and Chastain, along with Matt Damon, come together in 20th Century Fox’s upcoming sci-fi film The Martian.

“Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars.

Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive—and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive.”

‘Star Wars’ First A.D. Tommy Gormley Calls for New Studio Facilities in Scotland

21 November 2014 5:35 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tommy Gormley, the first assistant director and associate producer on “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” has added his voice to calls for the building of a major film studio in Scotland.

Gormley, who has served as first A.D. on all of J.J. Abrams’ films, picked up BAFTA’s outstanding contribution to craft award on Sunday. His credits also include “John Carter,” “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” and Roland Emmerich’s “2012.”

In a statement, Gormley said: “Scotland is full of talented individuals and is blessed with being one of the most visually stunning countries in the world. It has incredible culture, varied architecture and spectacular scenery, making it an ideal filming location.”

He added: “More and more, the larger studios are looking away from Hollywood, and Scotland is ideally placed to take advantage of this, with the correct investment. There is huge potential here, but other similar-sized nations already have studio facilities, »

Lionsgate Faces Tricky Battle in ‘Hunger Games’ Stock, Box Office Success

19 November 2014 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

By any measure, “The Hunger Games” has made a killing for Lionsgate.

The young adult franchise about teenagers who must compete to the death in order to survive has generated more than $1.5 billion at the worldwide box office, and has helped the studio’s share price more than double in the past two years. But managing Wall Street’s expectations can be a gladiatorial sport in and of itself.

Lionsgate learned that painful lesson last year when its stock tumbled more than 10% the Monday after the opening of “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” which failed to meet its most bullish projections. With the latest film in the series, “Mockingjay — Part 1,” set to debut Nov. 21, the studio has to hope that box office prognosticators don’t get carried away.

But that’s easier said than done. Wall Street is banking that the upcoming installment will be one of the year’s biggest hits. »

Señor Fenix is in Search of Buck Rogers!

18 November 2014 6:07 PM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Whither Buck ?

Hola Gente, tis I Señor Fenix, he who must be obeyed!

In the wake of Guardians of the Galaxy I started to reflect on the pop culture landscape.  At a recent visit to Midtown Comics I noticed a pile of Dynamite Comics.  Dynamite is a label that publishes a few cool new titles and some really old licenses.  They were the ones that noticed that John Carter of Mars was public domain in the United States and thus we were treated to dozens of covers with large breasted naked Dejah Thorises.  Because of course, that’s what the comic book fans supposedly want.

So anyway….

One of the comics they publish is Buck Rogers.  This is based on the old newspaper comic strip that was a big deal in the 1930s and 40s.  Baby Boomers remember the Daffy Duck parody "Duck Dodgers" and later the 1970s Star Wars »

Escape Plan: Method Studios & The Maze Runner

9 November 2014 4:00 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg chats with Sue Rowe about Method Studios bringing the world of The Maze Runner to the big screen…

Outside of a 100 shots being outsourced for wire removals and clean-ups, Method Studios was given the sole responsibility of bringing the world of The Maze Runner (2014) to the big screen. “We did 530 shots on Maze and 150 were creature shots,” states Method Studios Visual Effects Supervisor Sue Rowe who did not have to deal with an intermediary. “It made communication a lot faster and sharper as I was speaking to the director every day.” Despite of making his feature directorial debut Wes Ball is familiar with visual effects. “With Wes’ background in animation we had a quick shorthand in how we wanted to describe things. Wes knows a lot about filmmaking and if he didn’t know about something he’d read up about it. The great thing about Wes is »

He gave an interview to MTV stating, “Gambit’s the only X-Man I ever loved. He’s the most un-x-Man X-Man that’s ever been an X-Man … he loves women and drinkin’ and smokin’.” The actor and the character also »

Fox moving forward with Gambit movie, writer hired

31 October 2014 4:08 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

The X-Men spin-off Gambit, starring Channing Tatum, press ahead. A writer's now been hired to pen the script...

2016 looks set to be a big year for Fox's X-Men movie universe. It's got the Deadpool movie scheduled for February, and then in the summer, Bryan Singer's X-Men: Apocalypse will debut.

It's in Apocalypse that we'll first get to see Gambit as played by Channing Tatum on the big screen. And that appearance is set to be a springboard for a Gambit standalone movie, that will reintroduce the character first played in the movies by Taylor Kitsch (in X-Men Origins: Wolverine).

Fox is moving the Gambit standalone project forward too, and it's now hired a screenwriter to put a draft of the film together. The writer in question is Josh Zetumer, who co-penned the script for the RoboCop reboot that was released earlier this year.

Channing Tatum is definitely on board to play Gambit. »

Taylor Kitsch Reveals He’s Definitely On Board For True Detective Season 2

27 October 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The second season of HBO’s True Detective has had more names linked to it than Marvel’s Doctor Strange. Following its mind-blowing first season, the amount of speculation and rumour concerning the season two lead roles came as no surprise whatsoever. After all, the show would make a welcome addition to any actor’s resume with its rootsy, guttural approach to the darkest recesses of humanity. Now, we can confirm another name who’s bagged a role – Taylor Kitsch.

Kitsch, who made the best of a bad situation in Disney’s John Carter, has long since been referred to in connection with the show. His name has been doing the rounds and was mentioned recently when Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn were confirmed as the two main leads, and once more when Rachel McAdams was offered the female lead. While McAdams is still unconfirmed, in an interview with AdWeek »

"John Carter" Cost More Than You Think

27 October 2014 2:21 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Creative accounting is nothing new in Hollywood, studios obfuscate the real budgets of productions with much of the public never let in on the real cost of a major movie. When shooting outside the United States though, especially in countries with more stringent tax laws, hiding those actual figures becomes a bit harder.

Take Disney's "John Carter". The costly sci-fi flop was previously said to have cost around $250 million to produce. Now, Forbes reports that the project cost Disney approximately $306.6 million to produce according to recently-released documents. That's more than the $284 million worldwide gross of the film.

The publication also reveals that Britain's tax authority paid Disney $42.9 million towards the cost of making the movie, more than any of Disney's other movies shot in the UK have received except for the upcoming "Avengers" sequel which has already scored $53.6 million in tax rebates. The magazine estimates Disney has spent around $2.7 billion »
