Visual Effects Artist’s Miniature Sets, Dioramas Enhance ‘Hereditary’

In addition to creating prosthetics for “Hereditary,” multidisciplinary Toronto-based visual effects artist Steve Newburn designed and built the miniature house and dioramas that are key to the storytelling in writer-director Ari Aster’s supernatural horror film, now in theaters.

“To be able to get in on the miniature side, which in this day and age of computer effects is not something that’s really done as much anymore, was a lot of fun,” says Newburn, whose credits include “The Mummy,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Inception.” “If I could spend the next 10 years doing projects like this with the miniature work featured so prominently, it would be a nice 10 years.”

Miniatures are seen throughout “Hereditary” because the film’s main character, Annie Graham (Toni Collette), specializes

in that art form, drawing inspiration from her family’s everyday life, which takes a dark turn after her mother dies. “The miniatures tell

What Tom Hiddleston Looks Like as Riddler in the Dceu

What Tom Hiddleston Looks Like as Riddler in the Dceu
As a response to some fan casting that we never knew we needed, Redditor BatFlashHunterDesign created a detailed piece of fan art showing what actor Tom Hiddleston would look like as the Riddler in a future Batman movie. All things considered, it looks pretty great.

Tom Hiddleston has played the villain Loki in a number of McU movies over the years, until what seemed to be his final appearance in Avengers: Infinity War. Hiddleston should theoretically have a bit more free time now that his time with Marvel Studios has come to an end. While he likely wasn't anyone's first pick to play Edward Nygma / the Riddler, this fan art does look promising, and may be enough to change people's minds.

While it's unclear if the Riddler will make an appearance in the upcoming movie The Batman, being directed by Matt Reeves, there have certainly been a number of rumors

Will Jurassic World 2 Devour the Summer Box Office?

Will Jurassic World 2 Devour the Summer Box Office?
After an utterly disappointing Memorial Day holiday weekend and the first frame in June, the summer box office has slowly but surely started to rebound in the past few weeks. Ocean's 8 put up a strong debut of $41.6 million two weeks ago, and last weekend, The Incredibles 2 set a new box office record with a whopping $182.6 million, the highest debut ever for an animated movie, shattering the previous record of $135 million by Finding Dory. Even if The Incredibles 2 pulls off a minimal drop it will still fall to Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, with a projected debut of $193.7 million.

We made this opening weekend projection back in May with our summer box office predictions list, but when the first round of predictions from other analysts surfaced later that month, they put this epic sequel's opening weekend between $140 million and $150 million. We're still sticking with our original prediction, though, which would be an

A Riot Breaks Out In New Wonder Woman 1984 Set Video

You try and inconspicuously film a massive daylight riot in the USA’s capital city and before you know it, it’s all over the internet for everyone to see. Is nothing private these days? Certainly not when it comes to Wonder Woman 1984.

Apparently depicting a clash between the Navy Memorial and the National Archives in Washington, D.C., this footage captures what went down on set. We see the camera crew track Diana and Steve throughout the crowd, presumably as they try to steer clear of everything that’s kicking off. But don’t just take my word for it – have a look at the footage for yourself below:

Update: Incredibles 2 set for superhero-sized $182 million domestic opening weekend

Update: Weekend estimates are now putting the Incredibles at a three-day domestic haul of $182 million. Original story follows…

It’s celebration time at Disney HQ once again, as Pixar’s long-awaited sequel Incredibles 2 is tearing up the North American box office this weekend on its way to a whopping $175 million domestic opening.

The film, which has delivered Pixar its seventh A+ CinemaScore, earned $69 million on Friday and is well above tracking estimates of between $110 million and $140 million.

A $175 million haul would shatter the previous record for the biggest animated opening ever – set by fellow Pixar sequel Finding Dory with $135 million – and would also put the superhero sequel ahead of live-action releases such as Iron Man 3 ($174.1 million), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice ($166 million) and The Dark Knight Rises ($160.9 million).

The original The Incredibles opened with $70 million back in 2004 on its way to a domestic total of $261.4 million and a worldwide haul of $633 million.

10 Best Villain Actors Working in Hollywood Today

Tom Beasley on the 10 best villain actors working in Hollywood today…

Ask most actors what kind of role they like playing the most and they’ll tell you that they love having the opportunity to play a full-throttle, moustache-twirling villain. The old adage that bad guys have more fun is definitely true on the big screen, where it’s good to be bad on just about every level.

But not all screen baddies are created equal. There are some actors seemingly born to play the worst possible specimens of humankind – and indeed alienkind – in movies. With that in mind, Hollywood seems to have a travelling rep company of actors who can knock even the most generic of villainous roles out of the park with ease.

In that vein, let’s take a look at the 10 best villain actors in today’s movie world.

Venom Director Says Tom Hardy Gives A Tour De Force Performance

On paper, Eddie Brock and Venom are two very different characters.

One’s a mild-mannered reporter with slight anger issues, while the other’s an unhinged anti-hero that’s best described as an inky blank demon with pointy teeth. And yet, for Sony and Ruben Fleischer’s upcoming movie, Tom Hardy will be lending his voice to the alien symbiote, all the while headlining the spinoff pic as Eddie Brock.

He’s pulling double duty, essentially, which ought to draw comparisons to the actor’s dual performance in British crime drama, Legend. This time around, Hardy’s delving deep into comic book territory – not for the first time, mind you, given he brought a palpable sense of dread and menace to The Dark Knight Rises – and the result is a “tour-de-force performance,” according to director Ruben Fleischer:

Tom’s just so incredibly entertaining to watch. Duality is clearly something that fascinates him,

Eddie Brock Revs Up in New Venom Photo

Eddie Brock Revs Up in New Venom Photo
Venom is only a few months away from hitting theaters and an official production still from the Sony film has been released featuring Tom Hardy's Eddie Brock. Fans are still trying to figure out what to make of the new Venom movie. Hardy is continuing his tradition of having a weird voice and this one might just take the cake, besting his former co-star Christian Bale in The Dark Knight Rises. Whatever the case may be, the first tease of the symbiote looked pretty awesome, so hopefully there's a lot more of that going on when the movie opens in theaters.

The new production still from the Venom movie comes to us courtesy of Empire magazine. Eddie Brock is featured in the new image sitting on his motorcycle, ready to race into some danger, possibly under the influence of the symbiote. It's not the most exciting image ever shared for Venom,

10 Inception Facts You Never Knew

10 Inception Facts You Never Knew
It's the mind-bending thriller from Christopher Nolan starring Leonardo DiCaprio and so many of his usual suspects that we love. However you interpreted that ending, one thing is certain: Inception gives us plenty to think about, movie fans. Here we'll take a look at 10 things you never knew about Inception.

A freudian slip.

Rather than weigh in with a definitive answer, Christopher Nolan carefully protects the ambiguity of the film's ending, allowing movie fans and film scholars the space to debate what's real. The writer/director did reveal some of the movie's influences, however. In addition to the myriad myths, music, and religious history incorporated in Inception, Nolan cited the work of Ian Fleming, the Wachowski siblings, and Sigmund Freud in a 2010 La Times interview.

The dream team.

Nolan relied on his own experiences rather than volumes of research when it came to dreams as he penned this passion project

Matthew Modine Starring in Teen Baseball Drama ‘Chance’

Matthew Modine Starring in Teen Baseball Drama ‘Chance’
Stranger Things” star Matthew Modine will portray a baseball coach in the independent family drama “Chance.”

John B. Crye, a distribution executive with Wrekin Hill Entertainment and Newmarket Films, makes his feature directorial debut from a screenplay by Michael P. Daly (the real-life coach) and Seth Daly. Former actor Michael Hagerty is producing under his production company, Okerty Entertainment. Filming begins June 6 in Ohio.

“Chance” is based on the life of local baseball star Chance Smith, who committed suicide in 2012 at the age of 16 following a breakup. “I’m proud to be a part of this unique project — a town coming together to work through their grief at losing a cherished member of the community by sharing their story,” Crye said.

The drama raises questions how teens communicate with each other and the responsibilities of the adults who are raising and mentoring. The script is based upon actual text messages,

Gal Gadot (‘Wonder Woman’) could become the first female superhero to win Best Hero at the MTV Movie and TV Awards

The MTV Movie and TV Awards first handed out the award for Best Hero in 2006, and then brought the category back in 2012 and every year since. It was exclusively a boys club for most of that time, but women have won for the last two years in a row, and now there might be a third: Gal Gadot, who currently leads our predictions with 8/13 odds for playing the title role in “Wonder Woman.” She would be the first female comic-book hero ever to win the award.

But it’s not like there have been a wealth of female superhero movies to reward over the years. “Wonder Woman” broke the glass ceiling when it was released in 2017 to critical acclaim and huge box office totals ($821 million worldwide). Before that female comic book characters were relegated to ensemble movies and didn’t get to headline their own films: Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) in the “Avengers” movies,

Marvel Clarifies The Pronunciation Of ‘Symbiote’ For Sony’s Venom Movie…Sort Of

Is it sym-bee-ote, or sym-bye-ote?

Amid all of the discussion and rampant speculation that emerged from Venom‘s first full trailer, Marvel fans were left puzzled by the pronunciation of ‘symbiote,’ given Jenny Slate’s corporate character insisted on adding a rather odd emphasis on the middle syllable.

It’s a small hang-up in what is undoubtedly a cracking trailer for Sony and Ruben Fleischer’s adult-oriented reboot, which promises to be every bit as dark and intense as Venom‘s original comic book run. Speaking of which, ComicBook.com has spotted a moment in “Amazing Spider-Man #800” where Marvel appears to clarify the pronunciation of ‘symbiote’. You know, just to set the record straight.

As you’ll see below, the issue features a brief exchange between Daily Bugle editor-in-chief J. Jonah Jameson and Eddie Brock himself, who references the infamous symbiote while speaking on the phone.

The Latest Honest Trailers Episode Takes on Every Christopher Nolan Movie

Christopher Nolan is a master filmmaker that has made some incredible films in his career. Some are better than others, but all of them are great! In my opinion, the guy hasn't made a bad movie and I don't think he ever will. Just in case you need a reminder of the films Nolan has made, here's the list: Following (1998), Memento (2000), Insomnia (2002), Batman Begins (2005), The Prestige (2006), The Dark Knight (2008), Inception (2010), The Dark Knight Rises (2012), Interstellar (2014), and Dunkirk (2017).

The latest episode of Honest Trailers takes on all of these films and has a good time poking fun at Nolan's signature style and the things that we see from him in most of his films. Some of the things that the video targets are the plot twists, how every Nolan protagonist is basically the same kind of guy, the style of his films, the music and more.

Honest Trailer For ‘Every Christopher Nolan Movie’ Shows That Even The Best Are Far From Perfect

Everyone on Earth is able to watch a Christopher Nolan film and realize that the filmmaker is one of the best in the business. His craftsmanship is almost unparalleled. However, if you go on IMDb or social media, you might think that Nolan is the Second Coming and that his filmography is nothing but classics (minus “The Dark Knight Rises”). Basically, Christopher Nolan is the film god for many on the Internet.

Is Solo Finished at the Box Office, or Can It Win One More Weekend?

While Disney's Solo: A Star Wars Story had no trouble coming away with a box office win over the Memorial Day holiday weekend, the movie made more headlines for how it failed to impress, underperforming with a three-day tally of $84.4 million and a four-day Memorial Day holiday weekend total of $103 million. The Star Wars spin-off had the extended holiday weekend all to itself in its debut, but this weekend it will face three newcomers, Stx Entertainment's Adrift, Paramount's comedy Action Point and Blumhouse Tilt's thriller Upgrade, neither of which will usurp Solo, or even Deadpool 2, most likely, for what could be a rather tame weekend. We're predicting Solo will come out on top with $39.7 million.

Solo: A Star Wars Story debuted in 4,381 theaters, the fifth-widest release of all time, behind The Dark Knight Rises, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Avengers: Infinity War and Despicable Me 3. It

Honest Trailers Takes Aim at Christopher Nolan, Aka ‘The Internet’s God of Cinema’ — Watch

Honest Trailers Takes Aim at Christopher Nolan, Aka ‘The Internet’s God of Cinema’ — Watch
“You first knew him as the guy who made ‘Memento,'” begins the Honest Trailers takedown of Christopher Nolan. “Then he was the guy who saved Batman. Now revisit the retroactively perfect films of the internet’s God of Cinema. Makes sense, because only God could vote ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ the 66th best movie ever made [on IMDb].”

Honest Trailers has had its way with numerous Christopher Nolan films individually over the last several years, from “Interstellar” to “Memento” and “The Dark Knight,” but the group’s latest video brings every Nolan film together for the ultimate light mocking. From Nolan’s time-bending narratives to his preference for shades of blue, Honest Trailers nails all the trademarks that make the director a modern auteur.

Nolan was most recently in theaters last summer with “Dunkirk,” which earned Oscar nominations earlier this year for best picture and best director. The filmmaker has

Watch Test Footage Of Bane And Catwoman From The Dark Knight Rises

Here’s one from the archives: a featurette from The Dark Knight Rises designed to introduce Bane and Catwoman into Gotham City.

Played by Tom Hardy and Anne Hathaway, respectively, each character gave the Caped Crusader a run for his billions, though it was ultimately Selina Kyle who fought alongside Bats when Gotham needed her most. Bane? Well, he was more about bringing DC’s most famous city to its knees, even if his plan proved to be a little wonky in the end.

But make no mistake, if Hardy’s hulking brute sought the ruination of Bruce Wayne – physically and mentally – then he certainly achieved his goal, culminating it the moment when Bane broke Batman’s spine, and seeded the comeback story to end all comeback stories.

All of this (and more!) is outlined in the archived featurette above, which includes an interview from director Christopher Nolan about the
