Those ‘Smasher’ Boys Have Done It Again.


For any cinephile or movie aficionado, there are always hopes and dreams for movies that we know will never, (unfortunately) come true on film.  Luckily for us… (Trolly)Smasher and crew have an AMAZING library of concept trailers on their YouTube channel. The first one that we watched personally was the ‘Back To The Future 4’ trailer, and it blew us away.  Because of legal wranglings, there will never BE a ‘Back To The Future 4’… but you would never know that if you stumbled across this at random…

With nearly 200,000 subscribers, and nearly 200,000,000 views, the channel (edited by Rob Long) collaborates and supports professional/upcoming video editors and music composers worldwide.  Make sure to check out their channel here, and do be sure to subscribe.

Ghostbusters- Official Trailer


https://i1.wp.com/pixel.nymag.com/imgs/daily/vulture/2015/07/10/10-ghostbusters.w1200.h630.jpg

Having a gnarly apparition throwing up green ectoplasm all over Kristen Wiig’s scientist character, the first full scene of the Ghostbusters trailer, which arrived online Thursday, is full of slime and…more slime.  “We went right for the slime, and not just a little slime,” director Paul Feig tells USA TODAY. “It’s called ecto-projecting.”  This green-filled start was important for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot starring Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones (in theaters July 15). It pays tribute to the famous New York Public Library ghost scene from the original 1984 Ghostbusters starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. Switching from male to female Ghostbusters is a revive of the brand and gives Ghostbusters the opportunity to attract an even bigger audience.

But obviously, this Ghostbusters is entirely different.  “We wanted to plant a flag early. People don’t know what this movie is,” says Feig. “It’s a whole different team. But it’s kind of fun leading off with something iconic from the original.”  Feig, along with screenwriter Katie Dippold and producer Ivan Reitman (who directed the 1984 original), unveiled the trailer Wednesday to fans and media on the Sony Pictures lot. The trailer is promising and reminiscent of the iconic story yet with a updated spin and lots of good laughs.  Check the method.

 

When Trailers SPOIL Movies…

Everyone loves exciting movie trailers before a film, and with movie previews being released onto the internet before they even hit theaters, people are watching them with a frenzied frequency.  But what happens when trailers reveal TOO much about a film?  Mr. Sunday Movies, (1 half of the Weekly Planet podcast, of which I am a massive fan) delves into how over revealing plot information can destroy the way people walk into a film, and furthermore, 6 disastrous examples of when a trailer has put too much on display about a film.

THE MARTIAN – UI SCREEN GRAPHICS


 
The Martian tells the story of stranded astronaut Mark Watney and NASA’s efforts to bring him home. Based on Andy Weir’s novel, the story is set circa 20 years in the future, during NASA’s third manned mission to Mars. Predicated on real science, Director Ridley Scott and Production Designer Arthur Max drew on the expertise of specialists at NASA and the European Space Agency, and asked Territory to craft the screen graphics and UI that would be needed.

As a story that is mediated by technology, hundreds of screens are employed across eight key sets, forming the lens through which the drama unfolds.

Working closely with NASA, Territory developed a series of deft and elegant concepts that combine factual integrity and filmic narrative, yet are forward looking and pushing NASA’s current UI conventions as much as possible.

Territory’s plot-based graphics includes identities and visual languages for each set, and include images, text, code, engineering schematics, 3D visualisations based on authentic satellite images showing Martian terrain, weather, and mission equipment served across consoles, navigation and communication systems, laptops, mobiles, tablets, and arm screens throughout.

In all Territory delivered around 400 screens for on-set playback, most of them featuring interactive elements. With 85 screens on the NASA Mission Control set alone, a number of which were 6mx18m wall screens, there are many moments in which the graphics become a dynamic bridge between Earth and Mars, narrative and action, audience and characters.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Official Trailer – “For Prim”


https://i0.wp.com/nerdist.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/Hunger-Games-Mockingjay-Poster-09162015.jpg

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) didn’t step into the Hunger Games arena with the intention of changing Panem and teaching President Snow a lesson. She volunteered as tribute to take the place of her sister Prim (Willow Shields), and by doing so, she likely saved Prim’s life. Though they’re technically siblings, Katniss became Prim’s primary caretaker in the years after their father’s death. A new trailer for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 reminds us how important the relationship between Katniss and Prim has been to the series and to Panem.

The two minutes of footage barely hints at the dark road ahead–and yes, the worst is far from over–and instead looks back, beginning with the fateful moment when Katniss stepped onto the stage in District 12. She fought tooth and nail to stay alive for Prim, and once Katniss survived her first experience in the arena, Prim was a driving force that kept her moving forward. Prim grew up, became a rock for Katniss, and pointed out what her older sister couldn’t see: Katniss had become a symbol of hope, her actions inspiring citizens across the districts.
