Tom Hiddleston, Jessica Chastain Charlie Hunnam and Mia Wasikowska film scenes for Guillermo del Toro’s new movie ‘Crimson Peak’ on May 6, 2014. The cast, on location at Dundurn Castle in Hamilton, seemed to be having a fun day shooting together.

DreamWorks Animation Studios has announced the addition of a black female heroine (gasp!) to its repertoire of white dogs, green ogres, snails, Neanderthals, pandas, white people and Antz. In doing so, it joins an elite club consisting of … well, nobody.
Not one major Hollywood studio has released a 3D animated feature starring a black character.
GUYS THIS IS BASED ON ‘THE TRUE MEANING OF SMEKDAY’ BY ADAM REX AND I AM READING IT RIGHT NOW AND IT IS ACTUALLY REALLY AMAZING AND MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS SHE DOESN’T HAVE HER SWEET-ASS AFRO PUFFS SHE HAS IN THE ILLUSTRATIONS.
The character is Gratuity Tucci and when her planet is taken over by aliens (who also take her mom) who declare it theirs because they discovered it, she sets off on a road trip (she taught herself to drive, ‘crazygood, as good as nascar’ she says) to the human relocation area of Florida where she meets up with a Boov (one of the aliens) named J-Lo who decides to stick with her. She isn’t pleased.
I’m not done yet but oh my god, it’s really great. She also has a cat named Pig. Who joins her on the road trip. As one does.
OH MY GOD THEY’RE DOING SMEKDAY THIS COULD BE SO AWESOME OH MY GOD PLEASE DON’T EFF IT UP DREAMWORKS!!!
Pacific Rim is a Visual Effects phenomenon in every detail of its being. The film’s effects were produced by Industrial Light and Magic, a studio that stands as a pinnacle of digital arts. This video shows the making of the Hong Kong battle sequence, which was pretty much done almost entirely digitally. This battle sequence looks so realistic, the ability of the ILM crew is beyond comparison. There aren’t many inside looks into the work of ILM, so it’s incredibly fortunate that they released this to the public. Watch and be amazed!
Hell, they made such a great realistic work on that movie, it was a worth movie to watch.
"It was so hard, we did it last"
That’s the spirit.
why wasn’t this movie nominated for an oscar for its visual effects again?
and are we going to talk about the fact one of the dude’s last name is jaeger?
I found it interesting that the men refer to G Danger with he pronouns, while the woman referred to G danger with she pronouns.
"[director] david slade and i had long conversations about the kubrick-ian feel of this show. we are telling a story of a man who makes his living with his imagination who slowly loses his mind over the course of the season. we are telling a version of [the shining], except the guy is not an alcoholic.”
