Del Toro producing a Day of the Dead animated feature

Before you get too excited -- No, this is not a remake of George A. Romero's classic film Day of the Dead. There was already a remake of that starring Nick Cannon, and it was AWFUL. Reel FX has announced that they are working with Guillermo...

See Andy Serkis be a better ape than Caesar could ever be

This video makes sad, and there are two very-different-but-basically-the-same reasons for it. One is the fact that I was reminded by how unrealistic the CGI is in Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Seriously, it's awful. What's much sadder is...

Flixclusive Interview: Max Ivins, LOOK Effects [Part 1]

There are two types of interviewees: ones that need to be poked and prodded in order to say anything meaningful, and ones who will continue talking until you unintentionally cut them off during a pause. Max Ivins, Supervisor for the VFX com...

The Muppets masterminds wanted to keep things "tangible"

I think I've made it very clear that I am not a fan of CGI. Films like Rise of the Planet of the Apes are far less effective due to their reliance on CG characters. Fortunately, the men and women behind The Muppets felt the same w...

Toy Story 3 director preps next project
