The Force Awakens VFX reel shows surprising use of real props

These days, almost everyone expects "movie magic" to involve some computer generated images, especially in action films and most especially in science fiction action films. Naturally, Star Wars: The Force Awakens is one such movie and, indeed, the film is filled with CG shots. 2,100 out of 2,500 shots in total, to be precise. But while this VFX clip does show the extent that CG was used in the film, it also reveals at the extent it was not used, expertly weaving real world, physical props and sets when possible and only falling back to baked graphics when necessary.

It’s not that I like crappy movies; rather, the genre suffers from one big problem: true fear is very hard to impart through traditional film. That’s where virtual reality comes in.

Independence Day: Resurgence trailer sows seeds of hopelessness

Independence Day: Resurgence trailer sows seeds of hopelessness

The first trailer for Independence Day 2, a.k.a. Independence Day: Resurgence, which unexpectedly landed in the middle of a Sunday afternoon football game, is depressing. And no, that's not because of Will Smith's absence. Many of the original ensemble has once again been gathered by director Roland Emmirch, only perhaps to be killed off (or not) this time around. It's because the aliens are back, and they're back with a vengeance. Not to mention a more epic force. The trailer naturally paints a dark and depressing scenario where now you really get to question whether the Earth and its inhabitants survive this second bout.
