Here's some cool Dawn of the Planet of the Apes concept art

I really enjoyed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. It's smart, cool to look at, and I still want to grunt "AAAAAAAAAPESSSSSSSSS" from time to time. It's got its problems (that I've realized in retrospect), but it's a good film ...

Check out this cool Transformers: Age of Extinction Dinobot art

As bad as Transformers: Age of Extinction is, it has a few saving graces. One of them is the cuddly, yet super spiky looking Dinobots. Since the first trailer, the film had been hyping up the appearance of these fan favorite ...

The Amazing Spider-Man's suit could've looked worse

Here's sweet concept art of Iron Man 3 and The Wolverine

The Wolverine and Iron Man 3 turned out surprisingly well. Since the character building was done well, it would've been a shame if the rest of the movie wasn't handled as well. Josh Nizzi (an artist who's worked on The Avenge...

Director Richard Raaphorst reveals new horror projects photo
Director Richard Raaphorst reveals new horror projects
by Hubert Vigilla

At the end of our interview with Richard Raaphorst, the director of Frankenstein's Army, he mentioned two new biological horror projects that he's developing, both of which are conceptually great.

One of them Raaphorst described as follows:

...one is based on Dutch legends in which there are children who are buried in the soil. They come back. Their hands grow above the surface, and the hands are in the shape of mushrooms begging for mercy. And when you eat those mushrooms, those kids are going to haunt your head.

The second project involves scientists tampering with the Higgs boson, also known as the God particle. I'm still a bit hazy on what it is, actually, but if I'm understanding this right, the Higgs boson is supposed to confer mass to all objects in the universe.

After the cut, Raaphorst describes both projects. In the gallery is some concept art that Raaphorst created for both of these films, which are tentatively titled Fungus and Higgs. [Editor's note: As Roscoe pointed out in the comments, the mushroom project is actually Children of the Moor rather than Fungus. I've included concept art from Children of the Moor to reflect this correction.] To view more of Raaphorst's concept art and other work, visit richardraaphorst.com.

Wreck-It Ralph was one of last year's pleasant surprises. It was predictable, but completely filled to the brim with charm. What especially won me over though was WIR's videogame cameos. While the brunt of the story was withi...

Pixar concept art for The Good Dinosaur and more photo
Pixar concept art for The Good Dinosaur and more
by Hubert Vigilla

The good people at Pixar have released some concept art for their upcoming movies. The concept art from Monsters University looks pretty familiar, but the rest of the concept art gives us a first glimpse at future Pixar projects.

First off, there's The Good Dinosaur, directed by Bob Peterson. Slated for May 30, 2014, the plot goes something like this: "What if the cataclysmic asteroid that forever changed life on Earth actually missed the planet completely and giant dinosaurs never became extinct?"

Next there's Pete Docter's The Inside Out, which is slated for June 15, 2015. It's been described like so: "the inventive new film will take you to a place that everyone knows, but no one has ever seen: the world inside the human mind." (aka an adaptation of Herman's Head.)

And then there's concept art for the still untitled Dia de los Muertos film directed by Lee Unkrich. The film will be out in 2016, though there's no plot info currently available.

Check out the concept art in the gallery.
