Following the release of Gravity, we've seen plenty of cool glimpses behind the scenes, including this impressive visual effects breakdown, and also some cool alternate poster designs for the marketing campaign leading up to the film's theatrical release. The film has been out on Blu-Ray and DVD for over a month now, but there's still some cool stuff to be seen. For example, how about an alternate opening to the Alfonso Cuaron film starring Sandra Bullock that would have changed the film completely? It adds another character into the mix that would effectively change how the entirety of the story unfolds. Watch it!
The revival of Godzilla from Monsters director Gareth Edwards isn't too far away, and after we featured some spectacular fan artwork for the film from Blurppy, we're back to the official hype machine chugging along with a new TV spot. This one focuses more on the human characters, and the fear and uncertainty of survival we face as the King of Monsters wreaks havoc across the planet. Elizabeth Olsen sounds scared when Aaron Taylor-Johnson isn't sure he's going to come back from whatever mission the military has tasked him with to stop the giant lizard. We really can't wait to see how this remake turns out. Watch below!
Following an Oscar nomination for American Hustle last year, Amy Adams is lining up another sci-fi project as she waits for Batman vs. Superman to begin shooting later this year for the pushed back release in the summer of 2016 where the film will face-off with Captain America 3. Deadline reports Adams is in early talks to star in Story of Your Life, a new film from Prisoners and Enemy director Denis Villeneuve and writer Eric Heisserer (the remake of The Thing and A Nightmare on Elm Street) we learned about in January. The thriller takes place on Earth after alien spacecrafts have landed around the world. Read on!
"That's their advantage... that's what makes 'em stronger." Whoa. Chilling new TV spot for Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes sequel that originally aired during "The Walking Dead" on AMC last night. The 30-second spot has now hit the web via YouTube, and to compliment the footage we've included a new poster debuted by our friends at Collider from CinemaCon. We saw footage at CinemaCon as well and can only reiterate the same - this movie looks amazing. And this little tease of new footage continues to hint at the setup to this sequel and the two sides of the war we'll see battling in this. One of our most anticipated.
"Do not under estimate the danger..." After teasing the trailer just a few months ago, the mesmerizing sci-fi coming-of-age short film Prospect has finally debuted online in full. The short just premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this month and was funded primarily through Kickstarter last year. In the sci-f film, a teenage girl and her father have traveled to a mysterious, toxic alien planet hunting for precious materials to make money. Above all it's just a very well-made, beautifully shot short that will draw you in to its world. I'm looking forward to seeing more from these filmmakers, but for now, watch this for free below and enjoy.
Just a couple days ago we featured a new round of artwork from Blurppy for their "Poster Posse" proposal. Now we have a second round of artwork celebrating the giant lizard, and these might be even better. There's plenty more pieces showing off the impressive size of Godzilla and his infamous radioactive energy blasts. As usual, we've picked some of the cooler pieces that were submitted to pay tribute to the monstrous reboot from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, but there's a whole slew of more great artwork (and variants) to check out at Blurppy, and plenty more Poster Posses coming later this summer, so stay tuned. Look below!
Following last year's teaser for the anticipated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, we're due for a new look at the summer release. And while we're not sure when the new trailer will hit (though X-Men: Days of Future Past would be a good time to debut a new trailer), we have some new behind the scenes photos showing Andy Serkis and Toby Kebbell in the motion capture suits used to create their ape performances as a guide for visual effects artists. There's another shot of Serkis on horseback speaking with Jason Clarke and Keri Russell, but the more interesting shots have the ape actors holding big guns. Look!
"No matter who or what he is, he's after our bounty." Earlier today, a couple posters showed off an interesting marketing aesthetic for Jupiter Ascending, the latest original sci-fi film from Andy & Lana Wachowski at Warner Bros. Pictures. Now the second theatrical trailer has arrived, showing off more of the vast sci-fi universe the siblings have created for the film starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. It looks pretty damn epic, giving the vibe of a blockbuster sci-fi fairytale, complete with cool weapons, weird alien creatures, and rocket boots. Plus Eddie Redmayne is having plenty of fun as the villain. Watch now!
A new trailer for Jupiter Ascending, the latest sci-fi endeavor from Andy & Lana Wachowski, should be arriving anytime now. In the meantime, the first posters for the hopeful summer blockbuster have arrived, and they're not all that convincing. Since the first trailer seemed a bit odd, and the Japanese trailer didn't improve that vibe much, Warner Bros. has a lot of convincing to do in order to get butts in the seats for this original sci-fi flick. Otherwise, the Wachowskis just might have another flop on their hands (which might be why The Matrix is rumored for a reboot). The two posters feature stars Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis, but the aesthetic is an odd, fantasy mix of The Great Gatsby and Cloud Atlas marketing. Look!
Just after the viral marketing for the indie sci-fi flick The Signal kicked off last week, we got the first trailer for the film that debuted at the Sundance Film Festival. Now a second poster has arrived for the film, and it's pretty trippy. A walking, radiation-suited figure (maybe Laurence Fishburne) is given a kaleidoscopic effect, and it's just a stylish image that catches the eye and even creates a bit of mystery. This is such a cool movie, and we hope audiences will seek it out this summer and enjoy the ominous feel, the twists and turns, and just an original sci-fi flick amongst a pool of franchises, sequels and reboots. Look!
There's already a feature film adaptation of the Square Enix video game Deus Ex: Human Revolution in the works with director Scott Derrickson and his Sinister co-writer C. Robert Cargill behind the project. But since we've yet to hear any updates about the film since 2012 (Derrickson has been busy with Deliver Us from Evil with Eric Bana), Moe Charif and his Decode Films production team decided to make their own 12-minute short fan film, and while the action leave something to be desired, the production quality is great, and it's something cool for fans of the game to sink their teeth into while the real film develops. Watch it!
Production on the franchise reboot Terminator: Genesis begins next month, and while the lead cast is set with Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke as mother Sarah Connor and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, we still don't have much in the vein of plot. The recent casting of J.K. Simmons in the role of a weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades since the story emerged in 1984. Now the Terminator himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, has revealed some tidbits about the plot, mainly his cyborg character and the confirmation of more time travel.
Earlier this month, some awesome artwork for X-Men: Days of Future Past surfaced online after Blurppy enticed some artists with one of their "Poster Posse" proposals. Now they're at it again, but this time they've used another forthcoming summer blockbuster as the inspiration, and it's a big one. Godzilla is on the verge of becoming a big deal again (literally, this is probably the biggest the King of Monsters has ever been), and with the film not too far away, we've picked some of the cool pieces that were submitted to pay tribute to the monstrous reboot from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, and they're pretty great. Look!
"How many times have we been here?" Tom Cruise has to die in order to win the war. That's what the new theatrical trailer for the action-packed sci-fi flick Edge of Tomorrow tell us as Cruise is forced to relive a battle that he only survived for five minutes to begin with. But with the knowledge that he can keep reliving this single moment in the war, we're betting he'll figure out how to live a lot longer, and he just might be able to save Emily Blunt too. Maybe it's just me, but I think this movie looks cool as hell. Has a Gears of War vibe to it, and I'm always a sucker for almost any film with a Groundhog Day spin on it. Watch below!
