Apes vs. bear. Who ya got?
Apes. Together. Strong.
Not a very experienced director but we’ve got high hopes.
They’re not just throwing their own poop anymore.
He’ll lead man against those dirty apes.
The higher frame rate will make everything look too…look too…too REAL, man.
His amazing performances don’t negate the fact that he looks ridiculous in those motion capture outfits.
You can’t have a rainbow without the rain…unless it’s a CGI rainbow, I suppose.
Andy Serkis is the only person doing what he’s doing. He doesn’t need an award for that distinction.
I’d be ripsh*t too if I saw someone messing with John Lithgow.
Zemeckis, take notes.
And no, one of them is not ‘The Squeakquel”
You know what could really ruin your morning commute? Being bludgeoned to death by a pack of hyper-intelligent apes.
Do you think he’ll take off the mo-cap suit while directing?
Tyler Labine says the monkeys will get you all farklempt.
Andy Serkis should just live in his mo-cap suit from now on. The actor has agreed to once again put a ring on it to reprise the role of Gollum in The Hobbit.
With Angelina locked down to play the role that Liz Taylor made famous, Deadline reports that producer Scott Rudin is “pretty close” to locking someone down to helm this mighty, might vessel.
Over the weekend we got c*ck-teased with snippets of images from a first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever. Now Empire has officially unbuttoned its blouse and unleashed the goods. We have three honest-to-goodness official images.
Jamie Bell plays Tintin and Snowy his dog is played by…not Andy Serkis! Haha! Gotchu! You totally thought that since it was a mo-cap animal it HAD to be Andy Serkis. He's not in every mo-cap movie, ya know? But he is in this one, as Captain Haddock. You couldn't keep that guy away from a unitard with diodes on it if you tried.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever doesn't come out until next Christmas, so check out the pics after the jump to get a taste.
When did Maxim shoots get so old timey?
I know that I work for the Internet and am supposed to automatically love everything Simon Pegg does by default, but this trailer for Burke and Hare really doesn't portray the film in a favorable light. Andy Serkis's motion capture looks really convincing. It's almost looks like he's real.
The story is based on the true story of Irish serial killers in Edinburgh, Scotland who murder their victims to then sell them as medical cadavers. The trailer cites the desire to save enough money to bang Isla Fisher as the motive behind the slayings. I can't imagine a court where that defense wouldn't hold up.
Check out the trailer after the jump…
Little-known Hollywood funfact: Andy Serkis is 3-feet tall.
The first set pic from Rise Of The Apes has made its way online showing James Franco and Freida Pinto walking along with Andy Serkis. Not entirely certain what is going on in this scene, but it seems that James Franco's character is trying to impress Pinto by taking his helmet-wearing brother to Chuck E. Cheese. Just kidding. Of course this is Serkis in a mo-cap suit for his performance as the chimp Caesar in the upcoming film. It really does look like a still from Rain Man or "How's Your News?" though. (JustJared)
See the full pic after the jump….
Andy Serkis will be suiting up in weird, wirey crap once again to play Caesar, the chief chimp in charge of the Rise of the Apes. This should be a breeze for Serkis having worked extensively with motion capture to portray Gollum in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the 25-foot gorilla in King Kong, and Captain Haddock in Spielberg's Tintin.I'm really interested to see what WETA comes up with for this film. Now that I know it will be Serkis making raspberries and throwing his poop around (generally known as pulling a Kiefer Sutherland), I'm much more interested. But what of Hollywood's animal actors? It looks like they will be completely frozen out of this production. I just don't have the heart to tell Buckaroo. He's already blown his anticipated earnings on that lavish banana hill.Poor bastard.
