With Universal Pictures’ The Wolfman redux in day five of its American release (the flick earned $30 million over the weekend and registered as number #3 at the box office) and the horror fanbase divided over the movie’s use of practical FX versus CGI in the realization of its titular creature, we thought we’d bring you a portion of our chat with FX man Rick Baker, who weighed in on the subject.
Some last minute goods to get you even more geared up for this weekend's release of Universal's The Wolfman -- nine video interviews with the film's stars and legendary make-up artist Rick Baker! Pull up a seat and let's get started!
Dread Central (in this case scribes Heather Wixson and yours truly, Sean D.) hit the red carpet for the Chiller-Eyegore Awards and opening night of Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios in Hollywood, CA, and brought back some ocular candy, including video interviews, from the rather boisterous festivities that you can see below.
Never mind his six, count 'em, six Oscars, come October 2nd Rick Baker will be getting his due from Universal and horror fans everywhere as he's set to take home the Chiller-Eyegore Award for his incomparable designs and makeup effects that have created indelible imagery in over forty-two horror films!
Leave it to STYD to find a batch of conceptual pieces by makeup FX artist Rick Baker online at ZBrushCentral. Do they provide an early look at star Benicio Del Toro's change from mild-mannered Lawrence Talbot to the creature known as The Wolfman? We won't know for sure until later this year, but in the meantime they sure do make for some fun speculation!
Rick Baker received the Tesla Award from the International Press Academy on the 14th, and during his speech discussed his work on The Wolfman remake, which he admitted he had no idea why it’s been delayed for almost a full year.
There's no doubt that Universal will have this pulled down quickly!
Rick Baker may be an amazing FX and make-up man, but he really won our hearts at Comic-Con this year during a round table session that included Uncle Creepy after The Wolfman panel.
Tristan just got out of The Wolfman panel at Comic Con (lucky bastard) and came back with both good and bad news.
