This fantastic video recreates the lobby scene from The Matrix using Lego minifig versions of Neo and Trinity. There’s also a fascinating behind-the-scenes video that shows how a six-second segment of the video took an hour and a half to create.

leviathan-concept-700x302

Filmmaker Ruairi Robinson has been working on a sci-fi film called The Leviathan and the proof of concept trailer looks amazing. It features a giant, whale-like beast flying through the air with a crew on a spaceship fighting it off. A brief description reads:

By the early 22nd century mankind had colonized many worlds. Faster than light travel was made possible by harvesting exotic matter from the eggs of the largest species mankind has ever seen. Those that take part in the hunt are mostly involuntary labor.

Robinson was attached to the Akira remake at one point, so this isn”t the work of an amateur. This is definitely going to be worth your time to watch.

Back in Time is a Back to the Future documentary that has been in the works since last year when it debuted on Kickstarter. The filmmakers landed an interview with Christopher Lloyd and have since interviewed others including Robert Zemeckis, Michael J. Fox, Lea Thompson, Bob Gale, and Alan Silvestri to name a few.

In other words, the project has gotten bigger and that means another round of funding is needed to help with post production and distribution. So, the project is back up on Kickstarter along with the news that it will be released this October to coincide with time that Marty McFly arrived in 2015 in the movie. From the Kickstarter page:

Malka Media Group, Patchwork Media, and Director Jason Aron are pleased to announce that the documentary feature film BACK IN TIME will premiere in Hollywood, California on October 21, 2015, as a part of the We’re Going Back fanfest honoring the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future. The film will release digitally and on Bluray/DVD on or shortly after October 22nd, and will be available for preorder via a Kickstarter campaign beginning March 9th.

The biggest ever British Quidditch tournament was held over the weekend at Wayne Manor, but Batman was nowhere to be found. There were 24 teams who gathered at Wollaton Hall and Park where scenes from The Dark Knight Rises were shot.

The host team was the Nottingham Nightmares who fought teams like the Bangor Broken Broomsticks, Durhamstrand and Kent’s Flying Chaucers. Although they don’t fly, they do run about with broomsticks between their legs and play a game that’s part handball, part dodgeball, and part rugby.

Southampton Quidditch Club won the event and even got a trophy for their efforts.

The Battle of Hoth in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back is a tense scene full of action and danger for our heroes. Now it’s been recreated by Lego featuring upcoming sets and it’s less about tension and more about crazy fun.

Everyone blows each other up, then rushes to rebuild as characters from all the movies end up battling it out while a wampa watches the action and gnaws on a turkey leg. Yeah, it’s that kind of awesome.

Looks like everyone has buried the hatchet as Draco Malfoy was seen with Fred, Ginny and Ron Weasley having a pretty good time a few nights ago. The group looked very happy as all the actors met up in a bar, posed for some photos, and posted them on their various social media pages.

See their posts after the break.

Harrison-Ford-As-Rick-Deckard-In-Blade-Runner-Interview-1600x955

The last few months have been big on nostalgia. We’ve got the return of Star Wars of course, but there’s also Neill Blomkamp’s Alien film, Twin Peaks, the Terminator reboot, and even DuckTales and Inspector Gadget for crissakes.

Now comes word from Variety that Harrison Form is confirmed for a return as Rick Deckard in the Blade Runner sequel. Prisoners director Denis Villeneuve is in negotiations to direct.

The script comes from Hampton Fancher (who co-wrote the original film) and Michael Green with input from Ridley Scott. All we know about the plot thus far is that it will take place several decades after the original film.

Ford recently said that the script was “the best thing that he ever read”, which may or may not mean anything. Regardless, how do you feel about the reality of a Blade Runner sequel?
