Sounds like things are moving along on Legendary Pictures upcoming Dune reboot project with director Denis Villeneuve, with one or two notable updates. The first being that it appears cinematographer and longtime Villeneuve collaborator Roger Deakins will NOT be the eye behind the lense on this project. Deakins picked up an Oscar for his most recent collab […]
In a wide-ranging interview with Screen Crush, cinematographer Roger Deakins talks about his plans for the upcoming Blade Runner 2. We're just treating the new one as what it is; it's an entirely separate movie that will stand by itself. I mean obviously it has elements that connect it to the original. But it's going […]
I really hope he'll also be doing Villeneuve's Story of Your Life too.
It’s still got Sam Mendes, John Logan writing and of course Daniel Craig, but Bond 24 will be lacking one important element that made Skyfall such a smash.
Angelina Jolie is in Hawaii to shoot a her new film, Unbroken, and she's not alone.
IMAX want you to pay a premium to see an inferior version of Skyfall.
Splish splash, Bond's taking an early bath.
Including some very groovy stop motion demonstration video.
I'm fresh out of the IMAX Remix event held to coincide with Comic-Con and there will definitely be more to say about that later. For now, though, let's discuss their big finish: the premiere of an IMAX exclusive trailer for Skyfall, the next James Bond picture. The key point of interest is the introduction of […]
When I think of Shepard Fairey, two things come to mind immediately: the Obey! images, with the face of Andre the Giant; and the Barack Obama Hope posters. It's fascinating that he's now trying to get a new movie of George Orwell's quintessential dystopian novel 1984 off the ground – an unexpected but very logical […]
The Sony Vaio product placement extends to even the on-set pictures, look. Here's Roger Deakins, Sam Mendes and Judi Dench on the set of Skyfall, the new Bond picture. And… there's another guy. The focus puller I assume? This obviously isn't M's real office. I assume this comes when she's in exile…? What is this […]
The word was that Bond 23, Skyfall, was being shot digitally by Roger Deakins, a recent but vocal convert to the format. Well… apparently not. UPDATE: Or apparently so. We've confirmed with Arri that the film is in fact being shot digitally, top to bottom. I feel particularly stupid because a) I checked this previously […]
We told you back in September to expect Ola Rapace to join the cast of the new Bond film, and his casting has just been officially announced. As we said back then, he's withdrawn from some showjumping trials to fit in his movie commitments, but I can't say I blame him. He was disappointed to […]
Let's start with some pictures from the set of Skyfall, the Sam Mendes-directed James Bond film. These reveal one of Bond's cars for the new picture… a Land Rover. That he isn't even driving himself. And he's got a stubbly little beard. Certain purists must be having fits. But, look – the car is loaded […]
One day in the future, scholars with far more disciplined minds than ours will answer, in a word, the reason that the two greatest British cinematographers of the late 20th and early 21st century were both called Roger, Messrs. Deakins and Pratt. And that world will be "coincidence." The BSC* have put a pair of […]
Two official images from In Time, formerly Now, formerly I'm.Mortal, have been released and they each show Amanda Seyfried and Justin Timberlake running. Each picture features the same "scaredy running face" acting, though Seyfried is louder in one, Timberlake is louder in the other. I guess that makes them a well suited pair, though I […]
Josh Hylton writes for Bleeding Cool I love it when filmmakers play coy. They let something slip, then they try to be vague about it, as if nobody listening caught on. It happened not too long ago with Inception and The Dark Knight cinematographer Wally Pfister and the whole Catwoman incident. And now it's happening […]
