The Amazing Spider-Man movie: Dennis Leary talks Captain Stacy, slightly censored

The Amazing Spider-Man movie: Dennis Leary talks Captain Stacy, slightly censored

With The Amazing Spider-Man in theaters this week, it's high time you read up on the making of the film and it's future as spoken by the stars themselves, today's interview being with none other than Dennis Leary. Playing the role of Peter Parker's girlfriend Gwen Stacy's father, Leary lets it be known that he's not letting go of the series as easily as the classic plot-line surrounding his character would suggest. Note that this interview is especially littered with swearwords and spoilers galore, so if you're rather young or don't want to know what happens to Leary's character in the movie specifically, watch out - otherwise dip in on this rather candid talk with the actor.

Andrew Garfield speaks candidly on playing The Amazing Spider-Man

The next blockbuster comic book film headed to theaters this summer is The Amazing Spider-Man, and we got the opportunity earlier this month to speak to none other than the friendly neighborhood super-hero himself: Andrew Garfield. As part of a press junket in New York City that included everyone from Emma Stone to Martin Sheen [our talk coming up later this week], including the director Marc Webb as well, it was Garfield who came off as the single most jolted and excited cast or crew member involved. Have a read on how Garfield jumped into the role of Peter Parker and his superhero alternate identity Spider-Man below, and don't forget to keep your mask on!

The Amazing Spider-Man: Emma Stone talks up her first big-budget effects film

Ted Movie “hits the top bar” with Visual Effects Producer Jenny Fulle

Ted Movie “hits the top bar” with Visual Effects Producer Jenny Fulle

This week as the fuzzy teddy bear toting R-rated Seth MacFarlane movie Ted comes out, we got the chance to interview Jenny Fulle of The Creative-Cartel, the group responsible for overseeing the visual effects for the film. As it is with many of the films The Creative-Cartel works with, Ted presented them with the challenge of creating a set of effects that were top-notch with a budget that was less than your everyday average blockbuster effects film would present. The result was no less than a perfectly legitimate looking transformation of MacFarlane to the body of a toy bear stuffed into a comedy with essentially no other visual effects to speak of. It had to look real, and it certainly does.

Prometheus: SlashGear meets Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce and Logan Marshall-Green

The alien creatures in Prometheus might arguably steal the show, but whether they're antagonist, host or just plain meat, the human cast is equally important. SlashGear sat down with stars Michael Fassbender, Noomi Rapace, Guy Pearce and Logan Marshall-Green after the Prometheus world premiere to talk post-curtain rumors, working in the shadow of Ripley, and how the whole film might actually be a robot love story.

Director Ridley Scott is a man who needs little introduction: the genius behind Gladiator, the original Alien and, of course, Prometheus. SlashGear sat down with Scott - along with Prometheus writer Damon Lindelof - shortly after the movie's worldwide premiere, to talk director's cuts, the difficult balance of religion and science, and to find out about "The F*cking Cappuccino Theory of Astrophysics."

Prometheus: We talk Alien and tech with Ridley’s writer duo

Prometheus has arrived with a bang, Ridley Scott's expansive Alien prequel, and SlashGear sat down with writers Damon Lindelof and Jon Spaihts to talk Quadrilogy canon, SpaceX and angry androids. Jointly responsible for a screenplay that has spawned intense debate and no small amount of controversy, both Lindelof and Spaihts have a history of creating science-fiction that's as cerebral as it is explosive.

Men in Black 3 VFX pros describe “an onion” of imagination

Men in Black 3 VFX pros describe “an onion” of imagination

This week we got to sit down with the Visual Effects Supervisors from Sony Pictures Imageworks behind Men in Black 3, premiering in the USA tonight. As any Men in Black fanatic knows, the two main characters, J and K, have their single-letter names taken from their original civilian titles - oddly enough, the two men we interviewed this week go by the names Ken Ralston and Jay Redd - working equivalents of those two protectors of the universe working here to bridge the gap between reality and utterly insane fiction in the Men in Black world. What we found was that not only was this film captured with several different types of cameras and techniques, it was done in a specific Men in Black style, with time travel, fully digital copies of Will Smith and Josh Brolin, and none other than a completely re-imagined Cape Canaveral, not to mention New York city itself.

The Pirates! Key Animator speaks: Claymation machines forward

The Pirates! Key Animator speaks: Claymation machines forward

This week we've had a talk with Key Animator Ian Whitlock from the brand new film The Pirates! Band of Misfits, he giving us the lowdown on why this claymation epic sticks to its roots while exploring a new scale for the genre. The Pirates! Band of Misfits is directed by Peter Lord, features Hugh Grant in his first animated role as the Pirate Captain, and has superstars like Salma Hayek and Jeremy Piven voicing the bad guys. What we're interested in though isn't the voices, it's the technology behind the film itself - how does a next-generation claymation movie compete with the high-definition environment of special effects here in our modern Hollywood world?

3ality Technica speaks on Prometheus: ‘the best experience possible with 3D’

This week we sat down with 3D rig and software company 3ality Technica's Stephen Pizzo to discuss their newest products and how they played a part in the filming of recent giant Hollywood films as Prometheus. Turns out, Pizzo (3ality Technica's senior vice president) told us, it was Head Cinematographer Dariusz Wolski that convinced Ridley Scott that 3D was a possibility for a film such as the Alien prequel Prometheus - and that with the gear that was available today, they could film the movie the with the same ease and precision they'd be afforded with 2D equipment. In fact, 3D was made possible with essentially no extra effort on the part of the film crew; read on for the first part of the full SlashGear interview.
