Weta Workshop's Ghost in the Shell Robot Geisha

A live-action movie adaptation of Ghost in the Shell is on the way, as you may have heard, and excitement levels vary from person to person after the controversial casting of Scarlett Johansson in the lead role.

But anyone who’s a fan of movies—no matter what their thoughts on this movie happen to be—appreciates the use of practical effects, and Ghost in the Shell has some incredible ones. Mythbusters star Adam Savage and his Tested YouTube channel paid a visit to the special effects masters over at Weta Workshop recently, where he was shown some of the work they created for Ghost in the Shell. More specifically, the robot geisha. A great deal of work went into creating them, and there’s a phenomenal amount of detail to appreciate. This video alone doubles my interest in the movie simply knowing they went this route over digital effects when possible.

You can see what Weta built in the video below.

Super Bowl Spot for Ghost in the Shell starring Scarlett Johansson

Sure, Ghost in the Shell may be wrapped up in a whitewashing controversy, but Rupert Sanders‘ adaptation of the popular manga and anime starring Scarlett Johansson does look good visually. The film takes place in a highly technological futuristic setting, with a special-operations task-force made up of former military officers and police detectives assembled to act as a counter-terrorism force against corrupt officials, companies, and cyber-criminals.

Now Paramount has released the new TV spot that will appear during the Super Bowl this Sunday. Check it out below.

Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell

Back in April we saw the first image of Scarlett Johansson from Paramount Pictures’ live-action adaptation of the Japanese manga Ghost in the Shell.

Now Paramount is doing something a little different. They haven’t released the first teaser trailer, or a quick teaser video to promote the release of the first trailer as we see so often these days. Instead, they’ve released five brief teaser videos, each with a few moments of footage.

The 33

In the summer of 2010, 33 Chilean miners were trapped underneath 2,300 feet of rock, when the mine they were working in caved in. The real-life event became the subject of international news, as people around the world watched to see the outcome. 69 days later, the 33 members were freed.

News events like these are also good for dramatizations, and come November of this year, we will get to see the big screen adaptation of the event that unfolded before the world’s eyes. The 33 stars Antonio Banderas, Rodrigo Santoro, Juliette Binoche, James Brolin, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bob Gunton, and Gabriel Byrne.

Now WB has released a trailer for the film, which you can check out below.

Movie Review: Godzilla (2014)

Adam Frazier reviews Gareth Edwards' GODZILLA
Godzilla
Director: Gareth Edwards
Writers: Max Borenstein (screenplay), Dave Callaham (story)
Cast: Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn
Legendary Pictures | Warner Bros.
Rated PG-13 | 123 Minutes
Release Date: May 16, 2013

“We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried. Most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita; Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says, ‘Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.’ I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.”

– J. Robert Oppenheimer

In 1954, Ishirō Honda transformed the trauma of war into art with Godzilla, a science fiction film about a gigantic radioactive beast that rises from the depths of Tokyo Bay. The primordial force of nature firebombs Tokyo with its atomic breath, leveling the city and killing thousands. Honda created a walking metaphor for the nuclear devastation of World War II – a fantastic, out of this world creation that could embody the fears of an entire nation.

Godzilla is the granddaddy of kaiju cinema, but it’s also a very poignant and mournful drama – a Japanese film made at a time when the country was still reeling from the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, as well as H-bomb testing in the Pacific. Since then, Godzilla has become an international icon of devastation, spawning nearly thirty sequels. The King of Monsters endures because he is the perfect conduit through which to exorcise the predominant fears of our time.
