Video: The filmmakers from Sneaky Zebra are back with a sequel to a 2013 short film called Prop Wars, where countless movie replicas are used in an epic battle between a group of friends. Prop Wars: Prop Harder draws its inspiration from countless blockbusters including Tron: Legacy, The Force Awakens, Men In Black, Evil Dead and even the endless Marvel movies, but half the fun is trying to spot the less-obvious references and nods.
Video: On a comedy or drama, a costume designer's job is pretty straightforward. Design, then either buy or create, the clothes that will be worn in the film. But on a superhero movie, once you design the costumes, they can't be bought in a store -- they have to physically be constructed. One of the companies who does this is Ironhead Studios.
I'm sure lots of Giz readers have already placed their pre-orders for Tron: Legacy ahead of its April 20 release and are planning to spend the whole Easter weekend hanging with Kevin Flynn. But if you don't fancy paying $50 or so for the 3D/Blu-ray combo, you'll also be able to download on-demand versions from Foxtel in 3D, HD or SD (masochist!) on the very same date.
If you're a Jeff Bridges fan, Tron: Legacy was a double dose of awesomesauce. But how on earth did they turn back the clock on the dude to get a young Clu running the show? While I wish there were a fountain of youth - or some sort of Mission Impossible-style mask? - the time-bending technique is revealed in this exclusive video.
Have you ever wondered about the creative process behind all that software art you see in movies such as Minority Report? You've probably wished your operating system's interface was blue-on-black, at any rate. Josh Nimoy, the man behind the special effects for Tron Legacy, has described how the movie's software art came about - and provided a unique glimpse at some stills from the creative journey.
I have a sad confession to make - I missed Tron: Legacy at the cinema. But it was a conscious choice! I wanted to watch the original in HD before seeing the sequel. And it looks like I'll be able to do that soon, with The Digital Bits has a heap of leaked box artwork that indicates the two films will be released in unison on Blu-ray!
