ILM uses something called Performance Retarget to turn the actors – in leotards and masks that record facial movements – into talking, fighting turtles. Pablo Helman, a VFX Supervisor, elaborates on how the process of capturing “performances” on actors can help effects artists translate that into what you see on screen in the movie.
Luke Evans shows off his take on classic vampire in these two new clips for Dracula Untold. Can the actor join the ranks of the all-time great Draculas alongside Christopher Lee and Bela Lugosi? I guess we'll find out this October...
"She has to get away from their clutches." What is wrong with Effie? That's the question that plays at the center of the biopic Effie Gray. And from the look of its first trailer, the simple answer is that it wasn't easy being a woman in the Victorian age, where sex and desire were four-letter words.
The new Hunger Games: Mockingjay Trailer - Part 1 is here and did anyone else just get chills? There's really nothing like the sight of people holding their fingers up while looking at Katniss with support, determination and readiness. The anticipation for the first part of the two-part adaptation Mockingjay is already on the rise as November approaches.
If I'm understanding the translation of the Japanese YouTube description properly, this robot was in part created by a man named Okuyama Tetsushi, and, as you can see, it's most impressive (and terrifying) feature is the fact that the face is full of expression and actually looks like it is talking while responding to a reporter's question.
The journey to Fast & Furious 7 has been extremely difficult, littered with obstacles that the crew has managed to overcome. But you know that the tributes – like the one Vin Diesel shared from the set of the movie – will continue right up until the moment that Fast & Furious 7 opens in theaters next April.
In a normal year, this would be a film making the rounds at film festivals, ready to contend for Oscar. Perhaps that’s just not in Serena’s cards.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit remains a classic example of new techniques used with old fashioned storytelling, and it holds up to this day. But it wasn't always the film we know and love today, and in this recent find, you can see what was originally planned for everyone's favorite would be murderer.
For all the greatness that was jam-packed into the Captain America sequel, there was some flubs in its making. And Marvel's cool enough to share the silliness with this newly unveiled blooper reel.
Extraterrestrial, the second feature from filmmakers The Vicious Brothers, brings us a group of teenagers engaged in a battle to the death against bloodthirsty aliens. Oh, and it has Michael Ironside in it, too.
It's been a full 21 years since the release of Steven Spielberg's original Jurassic Park, but the magic has not disappeared from the film one iota since its release. Certainly helping maintain the film's iconic stature in pop culture is John Williams' amazing score, which is an inclusion on every list of great cinematic music. Now, however, that classic theme has gotten a lyric-covered update, and the man spreading the good word about it is none other than Dr. Ian Malcolm himself, Jeff Goldblum.
With football season upon us Disney has unveiled a pigskin-themed promo for their upcoming animated adventure Big Hero 6. But aside from some lame attempts at topicality, this teaser gives us a look at some of the non-Baymax protagonists of this superhero ensemble.
Director Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla should have been one of the best films of the 2014 summer blockbuster season. I want to stress the “should have” part there, because while it was certainly enjoyable in spots, it’s hard to look at Edwards’ giant monster movie and not see a whole lot of missed potential.

Those of us who lived through the '80s and '90s may have nostalgia for cassette tapes, but many of you will also remember that they were a complete pain in the ass. For those that don't remember or weren't alive for the experience, tapes occasionally decided to get completely sucked into the gears and mechanisms of the devices that played them, and unless you caught it quickly, were very careful with it, and were handy with a screwdriver, that tape would be destroyed permanently.
Into the Woods isn't the only feature adaptation of a stage musical that will make good use of Anna Kendrick's singing abilities. As you'll see in the clip below, the Pitch Perfect star will be singing her heart out in the feature adaptation of The Last 5 Years. Watch her express her adoration and affection while she distracts her man...
