Pictures from the set of "47 Ronin" emerged online. This is the first shot of Keenu Reeves in his Kai costume:
"Kai (Reeves), an outcast who joins Oishi (Hiroyuki Sanada ), the leader of the 47 Ronin. Together they seek vengeance upon the treacherous overlord who killed their master and banished their kind. To restore honor to their homeland, the warriors embark upon a quest that challenges them with a series of trials that would destroy ordinary warriors. ... Inspired by styles as diverse as Miyazaki and Hokusai, Rinsch will bring to life the stunning landscapes and enormous battles that will display the timeless Ronin story to global audiences in a way that's never been seen before."
"The Dictator" is new movie to be released in May 2012, featuring Sacha Baron Cohen AKA Ali G, Borat or Bruno.
The heroic story of a dictator who risks his life to ensure that democracy would never come to the country he so lovingly oppressed.
Here is the first official picture of Sacha Baron Cohen wearing a look alike Saddam Hussein dictator costume. You have to expect this movie to be as shocking as Borat or Bruno, so you'll probably either love it or hate it!
When Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse” hit movie theaters in 2007, I walked out of that theater knowing one day I would figure out how to dress like Cherry Darling for Halloween, machine gun leg and all. Clearly the issue with this costume is not so much in the fabrication of a machine gun as it is in the the faked disappearance of a limb from the knee down. How the hell do you vanish a leg from knee to toe?
I am actually referring to Daniel Radcliffe. In a recent interview with Digital Spy:
We put the glasses on and eventually we realized I was allergic to them. I was allergic to the Harry Potter glasses because these two rings of whiteheads and spots had come up around my eyes. It took us about a week to realize that it was actually the glasses.
I am just a sucker for stuff like that. This is awesome.
Awesome gallery and story:
The boy insisted for months that he wanted to be a robot for Halloween. His sister was a robot when she was his age. We looked at various robot images on the computer and he was most intrigued by Robocop. After I showed him the trailer, there was no convincing him otherwise. He was going to be Robocop. Which was good, because Detroit has a Cancer. That Cancer is Crime.
I found this on Instructables.com this morning, well worth sharing with our readers.
When my son told me that he wanted to be Edward Scissorhands for Halloween, I knew that we were going to have a blast making the costume for him. Everyone in the family had something to add - my son of course offering the piece de resistance by literally becoming Edward that Halloween night :)
The costume was originally made for Halloween 2010 from what i can gather. This turns out to be a pretty inexpensive costume but nevertheless a great look!
Collect belts from used clothing stores. We ended up with ten belts for our then 4 year-old son. Obviously, bigger bodies will need more belts. They were collected over a period of several months anytime we were near a Salvation Army. Find black belts of all shapes and sizes with lots of grommets, studs, big metal buckles, etc. The more visual variety the belts have, the more interesting the costume will look.
For safety purposes, the parents used silver plastic knives and even "file the teeth down with sandpaper".
This is the costume Billy Crudup was wearing in the movie Watchmen as Dr. Manhattan.
2500 LEDs that could produce the light blue effects.
How did Billy Crudup fare with the heat of 2500 of them?
The LED’s did not actually run that hot, and they were not on for any length of time. We turned the suit off as soon as the take was over. The suit was never on for more than 10 minutes straight. If it did provide any warmth, that was a good thing because we shot the movie in Vancouver, BC in the middle of winter.
This is the illuminated, street-legal motorcycle inspired by the computer animated cycle from the 2010 film Tron: Legacy. Designed for casual cruising and slow ride-bys at shows, it is made from a steel frame covered by a fiberglass cowling that replicates the sleek look of its computer-generated imagery counterpart. Electroluminescent strips built into the tire cowlings, wheel rims, and body illuminate the cycle. It is powered by a fuel-injected Suzuki 996cc, 4-stroke engine. Riders lay at a near-horizontal position astride the padded leather seat, with feet on foot pegs that control its 6-speed constant mesh manual transmission and hands on the handlebars for throttle and braking. The hubless wheels are former truck tires built up then custom-shaped to fit onto one of two counter-rotating rims spinning within each other, providing the broad-tired authenticity of the computer cycles from the movie. A chain-driven friction drum manages acceleration and braking from the handlebars. It has spring-loaded front and rigid rear suspension. Its wet sump lubrication system eliminates tubes and hoses for oil pick-up, facilitating its streamlined, minimalist design.
Sixteen actors dressed as zombies were injured Tuesday when they fell from a platform during filming of a new movie in the "Resident Evil" series, officials said, and rescue workers at first were startled at the seemingly catastrophic scene.
Can you imagine the rescue crew getting on the seen, looking at at all these individuals obviously hurt (they were disguised as zombie) and not know it's a movie set!
The victims' gory zombie costumes made it difficult for crews to assess the severity of the actors' injuries, said Peter Macintyre, Toronto emergency medical services spokesman.
The good news is that nobody was seriously injured, and the medics were able to figure it out!
