IT Set Visit: Everything You Need to Know About the New Film!

You may have just learned that Tilda Swinton was considered for the role of Pennywise - and maybe didn't get it only because of scheduling conflicts - but there's more good stuff to glean from our visit to the Toronto set of IT (which was in September of 2016). Below you'll find some cool quotes and factoids about the new adaptation, which comes from MAMA director Andres Muschietti...

IT Set Visit: Tilda Swinton could have been Pennywise, and more fun facts!

You can say this about the newest version of IT: The creative teams behind the scenes have been thinking outside the box when it comes to casting Pennywise. When Cary Fukunaga was attached to direct the film (he still gets screenplay credit), he had cast Will Poulter - only 22 at that time - as the ancient evil that haunts the town of Derry. Obviously, Fukunaga exited the project and...

JoBlo.com goes to Cuba to visit the locales from Fate of the Furious (video)

While a large part of my job is spent hovering behind the warm glow of a computer screen, every so often I get unshackled from this ungodly machine and jetset to somewhere cool and interesting. So, when you're invited to check out the Cuban locales used for THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS it's a welcome respite from the day-to-day and a unique opportunity in itself (as well as a great...

Every bloody thing we learned on the set of Goon: Last of the Enforcers!

Before we journey into the hearts and minds of the cast/crew of GOON: LAST OF THE ENFORCERS , I must first admit that this was my very first set visit ever. I've officially broken my cherry with this trip and I can honestly say without a doubt that it couldn't have possibly been a better first-time experience. The cast and crew were shooting up north in Barrie, Ontario at the...

Alien Covenant Set Visit #3: Ridley Scott, Billy Crudup, & Demian Bichir!

Still in the "WAR ROOM" (READ PART 2 OF MY SET VISIT HERE) actors Billy Crudup and Demian Bichirand were brought in. Both were charming, funny and eloquent with Bichirand in particular being able to stand in for the "The Most Interesting Man in the World" from them Dos Equis commercials in terms of his look and just how damn compelling he was to listen...

Alien Covenant Set Visit #1: Everything we learned on set, plus SFX info!

When I was asked if I’d be interested in flying all the way to Sydney, Australia to visit the set of Ridley Scott’s ALIEN COVENANT ( New Trailer and Poster at the end of this piece) aka “used to be PROMETHEUS Part 2”; I didn’t have to think about it much, if at all!

Set Visit: Andy Serkis & Terry Notary Talk War for the Planet of the Apes

Above my head and all around us, the grey, cloud-choked sky began to darken. Then, in what precious light was left in the evening sky, I saw what looked like two humanoid robots making their way toward the sanctuary of our heated press tent. With cheshire grins stretched across their dotted faces, actors Andy Serkis and Terry Notary arrived in full motion capture regalia. As they each...

Set Visit: Dylan Clarke & Karen Konoval Talk War For the Planet of the Apes

It's a still and gray afternoon in Vancouver, British Columbia. As I exhale, I see spiraling ghosts of precipitation escape my lips with every breath. All around me the air smells like a combination of drenched pavement, freshly baked bread, and the burning of oil. I can hear the mechanical chatter of gears as workmen navigate cranes – several of which are carrying a green canvas the...

Set Visit: Everything You Need To Know About War For the Planet of the Apes

Rebooting a franchise can often be a tall order, particularly when launching your project in a time when anything that evokes nostalgia will be scrutinized harshly by the very audience you’re hoping to entertain. Most days, all it takes is a few images of concept art, alternate castings, or the announcement of re-shoots for fans to ‘release the hounds’ by expressing...

Central Intelligence: Hanging out on set with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart!

Watching Dwayne Johnson get bullied is a thing you probably can't imagine, but watch it I did in Boston one summer afternoon last year: Johnson - 6'5, roughly 266 lbs. - was berated, taunted, put down and basically sent scurrying away like a beaten puppy. Not before meekly asking Kevin Hart - about an entire foot shorter - if it was okay to leave. This was not the Dwayne...

Assassin's Creed Set Visit: Fassbender & Kurzel go in-depth on the film

Justin Kurzel and Michael Fassbender previously worked together on MACBETH, a visually stunning and exceptionally acted film adaptation of William Shakespeare 's play. During the production of that film, Fassbender brought a little project he'd been developing to Kurzel to see if he'd be interested in taking the helm. That "little project" was ASSASSIN'S...
