One of the mostly highly anticipated movies of the blockbuster season this year is Rise of the Planet of the Apes directed by Rupert Wyatt and starring James Franco, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Brian Cox, Tom Felton, David Oyelowo and Andy Serkis as ape prime himself, Caesar.
It's another light week in horror title releases, but don't fret; the big name is out on a different form of media (hardcover book).
It's been a few months since last we spoke about Kristopher Aaron Morgan's The Home, but wow, have the folks behind it used that time wisely! Some casting news has hit online this morning, and dare we say the line-up is pretty impressive.
Were you a fan of Neill Blomkamp's District 9? If so you'll want to check out The Art of District 9: Weta Workshop, which just became available for pre-order and illustrates the guns, the aliens, the vehicles, the graphic language - the whole world of District 9 that was designed and developed at Weta Workshop.
Weta has revealed its first collectible figure from Neill Blomkamp's District 9: a sculpture of Christopher Johnson and his son, the two hero "prawns" as they are condescendingly referred to by the humans of Johannesburg.
It's been a while since the last time we updated you on The Home. Almost fifteen months to be exact. What can we tell ya? Sometimes the really good shit takes a while to get cooking!
Looking for a hot babe that knows how important it is to take a walk on the dark side? Then allow us to introduce you to Darkchylde. From the Press Release
A while back we told you guys about one of the many new projects Weta was lending their skilled hands to, a film called The Home.
Does anyone out there remember a little New Zealand horror film called The Ugly? It was one of those low-key flicks that came around direct to DVD here in the States just over a decade ago and got a good amount of buzz for its time. Well, if you have fond memories of it, The Ugly’s director, Scott Reynolds, is getting ready to make his first film since 2001, which also happens to be the first in a new South Korea/New Zealand co-production treaty.
It’s good to see that, even though they could easily do nothing but work on huge-budgeted films for the rest of their existence, Weta is still willing to help out the little guy when they feel the project is deserving enough.
