  • 22 Before And After Shots Reveal How Much Of Your Favorite Movies Are CGI

    When you’re watching a movie, you expect monsters and spaceships, and all manner of things that don’t actually exist to be computer generated. However, with the quality of contemporary visual effects, filmmakers are relying on computers more and more and real life less and less. Thanks to computer generated images, a director realize his exact vision for every scene. Buildings, trees, weather—all can be manipulated with computers and blended in seamlessly. Pretty soon, we won’t even need actors. Won’t be so smug then, will you George Clooney? Check out more photos at Business Insider.

  • Seth Rogen And Zac Efron Interview For Workaholics [Video]

    In the best ever ad that’s not really an ad at all, Zac Efron and Seth Rogen interview to be the new cubicle-mate of Workaholics’ Adam, Ders, and Blake at TelAmeriCorp. The hilarious interview, filled with filthy language and blatant homoeroticism, is actually funnier than most of the current season of the show. And you don’t even realize that the segment is to advertise for the upcoming movie “Neighbors” until the very end. This is how advertising should be done.

  • 1 Star Amazon Reviews On Movie Posters Are Hilarious [25 Photos]

    Remember the days when film reviews were written by critics who were eloquent writers, imparting knowledge along with their well though out opinions? Lame. Thanks to the Internet, we can all voice our inane opinions and plaster reviews on sites like Amazon while we’re perched atop our toilets, dropping a deuce. In fact, as I write this piece about the lack of professionalism of Amazon users, I am sans pants and drinking a beer. But who cares? These reviews may not have the insight of a James Agee piece, but they’re certainly a hell of a lot more entertaining to read. For more great movie posters, follow “Awful Reviews” on Facebook.

  • The Red Band Trailer for “Neighbors” is Robert De Nirific

    The redband trailer for the upcoming comedy, Neighbors looks hilariously filthy to say the least. Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne and Lil’ Franco headline the cast of the new family meets frat bros comedy. Seth Rogan and Rose Byrne are ready to start their new family when a fraternity moves in next door. After a mishap involving the poilice turns their relationship sour, Efron and Franco start pulling pranks on Rogan and his family, only to be payed back by Rogan. A classic Tale of feuding neighbors and Robert De Niro impressions. Nick Stoller is directing the piece which means it should live up to “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and “Get Him to the Greek” standards.

  • Hilarious “Gravity” Alternate Scene [Video]

    Sure, “Gravity” was a great movie, but if they had included this bit, it would have been even better. For more work from the genius behind this, Krishna Shenoi, check out his website, featuring more videos, paintings, music, and photography. Also, his 1950s “Inception” trailer is pretty great, too.

  • Edge of Tomorrow Trailer

    Tom Cruise stars in this near future action flick which an alien race attacks earth and our military is unable to counter. Cruise plays Lt. Col. Bill Cage (please let him be a decendant of Nic Cage) is dropped into action parachuting in a futuristic D-Day beach mission. He dies, then relives the attack, then dies again, then… well you get it. It’s Groundhog Day meets Minority Report. And just like Groundhog Day, Cage gets better at predicting the enemy’s attacks with increasing skill. Emily Blunt plays Toms sidekick/love interest/murderer. If anything go see it so you can watch Tom Cruise die 100 times. We’re kidding Tom. We love you, you’re just great.

  • Klingon Beer? Make It So

    The Federation of Beer, a Canadian company who produces Vulcan Ale, the first official Star Trek beer, exlcusively in the Great White North has announced their second brew, which will be available here in the States. Warnog, a drink imbibed by those relief map faced Klingons on TV’s The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine, will be released as a “Roggen Dunkel” style ale, brewed by Indiana’s Tin Man Brewing Company. A press release from the Federation of Beer describes the beer: “Warnog’s aroma is predominantly mild banana and clove produced by the German wheat yeast, supported by subtle sweet malt character from the use of Munich malt. The flavor draws heavily from the blending of the rye malt and traditional clove character, creating a very rich and unique flavor. The inclusion of wheat and caramel malts help to round out the mouthfeel of this beer, making this Dunkelweizen hearty enough to be called a Klingon Warnog.” The aforementioned flavors are a bit different than most would ascribe to a Klingon’s palate, but it makes sense that Earthlings would like things a bit lighter. At least they didn’t try to make the highly intoxicating Bloodwine. Yet. 

  • “X-Men: Days of Futures Past” Release Second Trailer

  • 12 Terrifying Unused Gravity Poster Ideas

    British visual effects house Framestore not only worked on the vfx for “Gravity,” they also designed the poster. However, the poster that we all recognize was not the only one made up. Recently on the Framestore blog, they offered a peak at a dozen other “Gravity” posters that were not used,  probably for the better. Even if you’ve never seen the movie, which was plenty terrifying on its own, some of these posters are enough to make your heart race.

  • The Awesome Vehicles of James Bond [13 Photos]

Is it weird that the Mercury Cougar is probably my favorite of these?

  • The Trailer for The Giver Looks Nothing Like the Book You Were Forced To Read as a Child

    You may have a flashback if the title of the summer sci-fi blockbuster, The Giver strikes a chord.

  • What Would Die Hard Be Like If It Starred Pugs? Now We Know [Video]

    My only complaint about “Die Hard With Pugs” is that there should be even more pugs. All we get are pug John and Holly McClane and I would have liked to at least see a Hand Gruber pug. And maybe a Sgt. Powell pug, too. Also, I think we can all agree that “A Good Day to Die Hard” would have been much better if John McClane, Jr was played by a pug. I’m not talking about some cop/dog buddy movie a la “Turner and Hooch,” though. I think the character should still be CIA operative John McClane, Jr. He just happens to also be a pug. Somebody get me Hollywood on the phone.

  • Wes Anderson Centered [Video]

    One of the first rules many photographers and cinematographers hear is to never center their subjects. In fact, centering is often thought to be amateurish. Well Wes Anderson either never got that memo or just doesn’t seem to care and things appear to be going all right for the guy. After this video, you’ll never  watch his films the same way again. Do you think my roommates would mind if I drew a line down the center of the big screen TV and watched Wes Anderson movies all day?

  • 50 Historical Figures According To The Movies [50 Photos]

  • The Anchorman 2 Gag Reel Could be Better than the Movie

    Anchorman 2 got some mixed reviews to say the least, but the movie had a lot to live up to. It’s a matter of opinion if the film lived up to the high standards expected from the cast and especially the first film. But this is a gag reel, nothing to do with the movie, just a few of the best comedians in the world unable to keep their composure. The reel is a part of a collection that can be found with the digital release of “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” next week and with the Blu-ray and DVD on April 1.

  • 1000 Movies You Need to See Before You Die

    Jonathan Keogh, a YouTube super-cut “composer” used a book based on Steven Jay Schneider’s series, plus 215 extra titles as well to curate this list. “This epic little monster took me one year to the date to finish. I tried my best to make it an overpowering exercise in film. In another 130 years, this will be a completely different list. It was important to start with a film projector because film itself is becoming/already is a thing of the past.”

  • Lego Announces Star Wars Sandcrawler [6 Photos]

    Lego has announced the newest addition to their Star wars line and it is quite impressive. The Jawas’ Sandcrawler from the first movie has been recreated on a massive scale, utilizing almost 3300 pieces. That means there will be lots of frustrated dads come holiday season. The mobile droid junkyard is big in Lego terms, at 9 inches high, 18 inches long, and 6 inches wide. The minifigures that come with the set include Luke, Uncle Owen, C-3PO, R-2D2, 4 Jawas, and more droids and droid parts. The set won’t be available until May, which gives you plenty of time to save your allowance, since the Sandcrawler will set you back $300.

  • The Real Wolf Of Wall Street [Infographic]

    Martin Scorsese’s “Wolf of Wall Street” will be released on DVD this month, so if you haven’t gotten a chance to see it, you soon will. And if you have seen it, you know you want to see it again. As everyone knows, it’s based on the true story of Wall Street sleazeball Jordan Belfort, but just how true is it? Get a quick rundown on the life of the real Belfort with this infographic then imagine what kind of movie it would have been if he stayed on the path to become a dentist…

    Th long awaited follow-up to 2005′s “Sin City” is set to be released on August 22. The first trailer is now out and “Sin City: A Dame To Kill For” is looking even more stylish than the original. Many actors from the original are returning, such as Mickey Rourke, Powers Boothe, and Jessica Alba (thank God), and they will be joined by plenty of actors new to the series such as Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, and Eva Green (thank God). 

  • Photoshopping The Oscars Selfie [12 Photos]

    Both the talented and talentless over at Reddit’s Photoshop Battles are duking it out with their takes on the celebrity-heavy Oscars selfie. As good as the creepy photo from “The Shining” is, I think the current best is the lonely Bradley Cooper with cardboard cutouts of his fellow stars.

  • The Award For Parents Of The Year Goes To…Cardboard Box Office [20 Photos]

    After moving to a new country and the birth of baby Orson, Lilly and Leon found themselves with an abundance of cardboard boxes. Obviously, the only logical thing to do when you find yourself in such a predicament is to recreate classic movie scenes with your family and make a website to share your creativity with the world. And so they did. You can keep up with the family at Cardboard Box Office, where a new photo is added every weekend. Let’s hope they keep it up well into Orson’s angsty teenage years.  

  • The Evolution of the Warner Bros Logo

    Any self proclaimed movie buff knows that major studio logos have always kept a basic brand identity through the years. Paramount mountains, Universal globe and the WB shield to name a few, but have almost always kept a general brand identity. Designer Christian Annyas has compiled a great collection that shows the evolution of the Warner Bros. logo over the past 90 years. “During 90 years the Warner Bros. shield has undergone a series of refinements. Three variations reflect transitions in ownership (Warner Bros.-Seven Arts in 1967, Kinney in 1969 and Warner Communications Inc. in 1972). In 1984 Warner Bros. returned to the shield set over a background of clouds. The corporate names below the shield have changed over the years, but the logo has been a shield ever since.” View the entire collection at Christian Annyas’ site here.

  • Dennis Rodman’s North Korean Exploits Will Be Turned Into A Comedy Movie [Link]

    At least some good is finally coming from Dennis Rodman’s bizarre, alcohol-fueled, “hoops diplomacy” mission to North Korea. A comedic film based on the Worm’s January journey to North Korea and his mind boggling relationship with its despotic leader is now in the works with “Ride Along” director Tim Story attached to the project. Is a nation rife with human rights abuse an apt subject for a goofy comedy? Maybe with the right cast…

  • Gravity’s VFX Revealed [Video]

    British visual effects company Framestore has released a video showcasing all the work that went into creating the amzing visual effects for Best Picture nominee “Gravity.” The amount of planning that went into every shot of the almost entirely CG film is mind-boggling. And the fact that viewers were able to accept the virtual world as real life is a testament to Framestore’s cinematic accomplishment.
