This is so great. Famous movies you know and love — like Citizen Kane, Blade Runner, The Shining and others — are re-imagined and re-told in the form of a 30-second animation movie trailer. So E.T. becomes a horror flick, The Big Lebowski is now a Kung Fu tale and Citizen Kane becomes a story about a Gross Butt and not Rosebud.
Even though it’s incredibly hard to believe and goes against sound sun rises in the east and sets in the west logic, Chris Hemsworth (and to a lesser extent Thor) is not a perfect being that doesn’t make goofy mistakes. This gag reel proves he’s human after all! Just like us! And sometimes moments get awkward and sometime he falls and sometime he flubs up. But, damn, he makes it look so fun to screw up.
Movie magic makes fantasy worlds feel real everyday, but this short film called “Icons” takes it to a whole other level by transforming one actor over and over again, putting him in multiple iconic scenes and works of art in a single incredible shot. From the Thinker to Mad Men to Reservoir Dogs to Daft Punk.
The announcement last year that Los Angeles would be replacing its high-pressure sodium streetlights — known for their distinctive yellow hue — with new, blue-tinted LEDs might have a profound effect on at least one local industry. All of those LEDs, with their new urban colour scheme, will dramatically change how the city appears on camera, thus giving Los Angeles a brand new look in the age of digital filmmaking. As Dave Kendricken writes for No Film School, “Hollywood will never look the same.”
White Heat is a classic gangster film from 1949, starring James Cagney. It is a thoroughly Los Angeles flick, filmed almost exclusively in the Greater Los Angeles region, including scenes shot at Warner Brother Studios in Burbank. The film is considered a classic for many reasons — but what’s interesting specifically in terms of Gizmodo is its depiction of what, at the time, cutting-edge technologies that have been adapted by the police to track down Cagney’s gang.
The Los Angeles Times reports that Paramount Pictures is the first major Hollywood studio to ditch 35mm film and go all-digital for United States theatre releases, with The Wolf of Wall Street being shipped to theatres in digital format only. Sorry film fans, it sounds like that’s a wrap.
It may not look like much right now, but this strip of blown-out, busted-up buildings is usually swarming with celebrities. Movies like Zero Dark 30, Iron Man and National Security were all filmed here, at what’s known as the Blue Cloud Movie Ranch, a series of sets scattered out across 100 acres just north of Los Angeles.
