How Samuel L Jackson’s De-Aging on ‘Captain Marvel’ Cut Shooting Time in Half

How Samuel L Jackson’s De-Aging on ‘Captain Marvel’ Cut Shooting Time in Half
Samuel L. Jackson, who is 70 years old, was made to look 25 years younger as Nick Fury for the ’90s throwback movie “Captain Marvel.” And though the studio has previously de-aged Michael Douglas (“Ant-Man” films), Kurt Russell (“Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”) and Robert Downey Jr. (“Captain America: Civil War”), the work on Jackson is the first time Marvel has done this for a co-lead actor for an entire movie.

De-aging is a meticulous, time-intensive process. Part of that process involves filming a body double that the visual effects artist can use as a reference. In making the leap between a handful to now hundreds of shots, Marvel tasked the company Lola Visual Effects to make some tests to see what Jackson could look like without the aid of a double. The payoff was enormous.

“That process works if you’ve got five, eight, maybe 10 shots. But in a movie

Surf Guitar Virtuoso Dick Dale Dies at 81

Tony Sokol Mar 18, 2019

The King of the Surf Guitar knew his axe from the bottom up. Dick Dale elevated the instrument.

Rock and roll pioneer guitarist Dick Dale, "King of the surf guitar," died at the age of 81, according to Variety. The news was confirmed by drummer Dusty Watson. The cause and location of Dale's death have not been released.

Dick Dale was one of the original shredders of rock music. He was fast and loud enough to be called the father of Heavy Metal and he told Fender how to give their amps juice. But his aggressive staccato shredded strings and picks, just ripped through them during performance. He didn't do it out of rage, he loved his guitar, which he called The Beast, and wanted to be everywhere on it at all times when he was plugged in. He learned the instrument from the bottom up.

Dick Dale Dies: ‘Surf Guitar King’ And TV/Film Soundtrack Staple Was 81
Dick Dale, whose jangly, reverb-heavy surf guitar style was the soundtrack on numerous film and TV productions, died on Saturday. No cause was given, but Dale had been in ill health for a number of years, even as he kept up a crowded touring schedule.

Dale’s music was a featured attraction in such films as Pulp Fiction, Escape From L.A., Space Jam, Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle and Garfield 2, among many others. He was equally prolific in TV music, and even had a few acting stints, including an uncredited role in Elvis Presley’s Let’s Make Love in 1960.

But it was as a musician that Dale made an indelible mark. His versions of “Pipeline” and “Misirlou“ (the theme from Pulp Fiction) are considered rock ‘n roll classics, and Dale branded the unique surf sound on several generations of fans. He continued to tour despite a host of health problems,

Forrest Gump Is Getting a Bollywood Remake

A Bollywood remake of Forrest Gump is on the way. The remake is titled Lal Singh Chadha and it features Indian superstar Aamir Khan in the main role that Tom Hanks made famous in the Robert Zemeckis-directed original. The original movie was released in 1994 and is based on Winston Groom's 1986 novel of the same name.

Who likes free movie tickets! Who likes weird, mind-bending, smart, cool, funky, and all-around head-scratcher kinds of films? Who lives in the New York area?

Captain Marvel Meets Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction Mashup

Captain Marvel Meets Jules Winnfield in Pulp Fiction Mashup
Captain Marvel stars a de-aged Samuel L. Jackson in the year 1995. That is one year after the debut of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, which also stars Jackson. It was a true cultural phenomenon at the time. A new mashup video between the two very different movies has been made. It's pretty amazing what Marvel Studios was able to pull off with the de-aging technique on Jackson and Clark Gregg in the Carol Danvers standalone movie. It's hard to tell that anything was done to their faces at all.

Jimmy Kimmel Live is not the first to think of Captain Marvel and Pulp Fiction parallels, but they whipped up a mashup that is perfect. In the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe project, Brie Larson's Carol Danvers and Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury are seen in a bar where Danvers is questioning a young Fury.

Jimmy Kimmel Mashes Up ‘Captain Marvel’ and ‘Pulp Fiction’ and It’s Great (Video)
Jimmy Kimmel’s mind went to the same exact place yours probably did when he heard that “Captain Marvel” takes place in the 1990s and co-stars a digitally de-aged Samuel L. Jackson.

But don’t think we’re complaining.

“What Disney did to cut 25 years off Sam Jackson’s face, they really knocked this one out of the park,” Kimmel gushed before running a clip that mashed up a diner scene from “Captain Marvel” with the very celebrated final act of Jackson’s 1994 film “Pulp Fiction.”

Watch the clip from Tuesday’s episode below:

Thanks to the magic of CGI, @SamuelLJackson looks exactly like he did in 1995… #CaptainMarvel pic.twitter.com/Qv4lMVjqGq

Frankly, we’d watch the hell out of that movie.

‘The Hummingbird Project’ Exclusive Clip: Alexander Skarsgård Dances Through The Hallways Because Of One Millisecond

A little over a month ago, the first trailer for “The Hummingbird Project” was released. The footage shown gave viewers a clear indication that this film is going to be one of the more entertaining projects hitting the first part of 2019. But for my money, the standout moment of the trailer is the scene where star Alexander Skarsgård does the best dance committed to film since perhaps John Travolta in “Pulp Fiction.”

And in honor of the film’s impending release next week, we are thrilled to exclusively present the entire dance sequence, capped off with an equally impressive chase sequence through a hotel hallway and ending at a tennis court.
