Prometheus 2 - Have you got what it takes?

Damon Lindelof was the genius behind the script for 2012’s VFX emblazoned Prometheus, but it was unveiled earlier this year that he will not be returning to write the script for the sequel.

'The Croods' clubs the weekend box office!

'The Croods' clubs the weekend box office!

After last week’s mention of 'Despicable Me 2' arriving soon to hit cinema screens, it’s fair to say that animation is very much in the public eye at the moment, and the trend continued this weekend as animated movie ‘the Croods’ has dominated the box office.

Project Green Screen!

Project Green Screen!

Most film lovers out there will be well vested in the work of legendary director and writer, Robert Rodriguez, and especially if you’re a fan of the grindhouse double bill, then it’s fair to assume that you are probably an owner of at least one Rodriguez DVD.

Lovable Film, Despicable Me 2.

Lovable Film, Despicable Me 2.

I loved the first slice of 'Despicable Me'.  And it’d be an understatement to say I am excited about this new trailer and release of ‘Despicable Me 2’ this summer! On the site, you can see some of their 3D turntables of the CG car they designed that is amphibious, there’s also some concept art on there too.

James Cameron gets lost in Pandora.

James Cameron gets lost in Pandora.

One of my colleagues here at Escape asked me recently to name the film which has had the most profound effect on me in terms of ‘visual cinematic experience’ and, without hesitation, I said; Avatar

90 years of the BBC in 60 seconds.

90 years of the BBC in 60 seconds.

If you live in the UK and watch television from time to time, you might find yourself familiar with the BBC… well to be honest, unless you live in a cave and aren’t aware of the technological progression of the western world over the last 100 years, you will definitely have heard of the BBC.

Will Emma still be the Belle of the Ball?

Will Emma still be the Belle of the Ball?

You may remember earlier this week I got a little excited about the prospect of Emma Watson playing Cinderella in Walt Disney Pictures’ live action adaptation of the fairy tale.

'Masks' - The most fantastically bizarre animation you'll see all year!

'Masks' - The most fantastically bizarre animation you'll see all year!

We reckon that this is quite simply on of the most excellent (and unique) animated shorts you’ll have seen in a while!

An animation by Patrick Smith, created entirely on the back of a pre written score by musician Karl Von Kries. This short shows a mad scientist that perfects a cloning process of a small grey population of people. Who in turn are edible to  the larger, superior Masked folk. The little grey clones have a trick up their sleeve though, so make sure you watch until the end!


The animated short has won a number of awards in it’s time, and if you haven’t seen it yet – click away

Every Young Girl’s Dream (well, quite a few…)

Every Young Girl’s Dream (well, quite a few…)

I’ll probably get in to trouble if I say that EVERY young girl dreamed of having their very own Prince Charming slip on the glass slipper and whisk her away from a life of boredom, ill-treatment and endless cleaning, but it would be fair to say that quite a few girls grew up getting lost in this particular fantasy, and it would appear that Emma Watson is one of them!

Who ya gonna call…?

Who ya gonna call…?

I’m showing my age here, but one of my favourite flashbacks to my childhood is of being sat on the sofa with my younger brother staring wide-eyed at the TV screen while bumbling scientists Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd and Harold Ramis got slimed over and over in the supernatural comedy classic, Ghostbusters. Released in June 1984, I was too young to go and see it at the cinema but I never failed to catch the re-runs when it appeared in our homes during the years that followed, usually around Christmas time if my memory serves me correctly.
