    Review: 'The Adventures of Tintin' Is All Hollow Spectacle & No Joy

    Tintin is a terrible journalist. It has to be said -- his walls are covered with framed news stories about his exploits rather than work published under his byline, he takes not one note (pity his poor fact-checker) and not even by the laxest of Fox News standards could he be considered objective, g...

    Will Apes Speak In 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' Sequel?

    One of the big questions when entering this summer's surprisingly entertaining "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" was whether or not the apes, led by fuzzy rebel commander Caesar (played by Andy Serkis), would end up speaking in the movie. Most of the apes remained mute. But that could change, accord...

    Visual Effects Supervisor Joe Letteri Talks Creating Caesar In 'Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes' & Andy Serkis' Oscar Chances

As a visual effects supervisor at Peter Jackson's WETA Digital, he had a hand in two of this year's most discusse...

    Review: Steven Spielberg's 'The Adventures Of Tintin' Is A Gloriously Enjoyable Mo-Cap Marvel

    Across his 40 year career as Hollywood's most beloved filmmaker, Steven Spielberg has tried his hand at many different things -- the blockbuster thrill ride, the family film, the comedy, the war film, hardcore science-fiction, serious dramas and whatever it was that "The Terminal" was, a diverse range of pictures united by that certain Spielberg je-ne-sais-quoi. But there's something he's never tackled directly himself; the animated film. Sure, he's produced TV cartoons like "Animaniacs," and even the occasional big-screen one, like "An American Tail" and "We're Back," but for the most part, the Bearded One has always preferred live action to...

    LFF '11 Review: 'Wild Bill' Is An Immensely Likable Directorial Debut From Dexter Fletcher

    For whatever reason, directorial debuts by British character actors tend to lean towards the gritty kitchen-sink drama; Tim Roth, Gary Oldman and, more recently, Paddy Considine have all broken their filmmaking cherry with uncompromisingly tough, bleak subject matter. Considering that it involves abandonment, council estates and the risk of being taken into care, one might be forgiven for expecting the same from Dexter Fletcher's first film, "Wild Bill." But then, Fletcher's best known for being one of the central quartet, alongside Jason Statham, Jason Flemyng and Nick Moran, in Guy Ritchie's debut "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," and ...

    Steven Spielberg Says 'The Adventures Of Tintin' Is "85% Animation, 15% Live Action"

    And More We Learned From Empire Magazine's Feature On The Steven Spielberg Animated AdventureIt's been three and a half years since Steven Spielberg's last movie (and nearly six since his last good one), but the wait is nearly over as "The Adventures of Tintin" (or to give it its full international title, "The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn") hits Europe in a few short weeks, and it started screening for press in the last few days, with reviews emerging from London in the last 24 hours. The film, a long-in-the-works performance-capture version of Hergé's boy-detective hero, marks the great director's first entrance into the w...
