New Final Fantasy XV trailer shows off more crazy and weird road trip action

We’ve got to be honest: we don’t really know much about the plot of the upcoming Final Fantasy XV, but we’re irresistibly drawn to the idea of a road trip movie in a fantasy world. There’s just nothing like pulling to the side of the road and piling out of the car to beat down a crew of dudes in armor and some massive land mammals. And as for the story, it is coming together a bit: the latest trailer for the upcoming RPG just came out of the Jump Festa 2015 Japanese convention, and it does fill in a few more gaps. And no, there’s still no word on when this game will ship.

What if Captain America were an ’80s action movie star?

Captain America as the idealistic man out of time already works so well on the silver screen. But what if he were a rogue super soldier bent on revenge? This trailer reimagines Captain America: Winter Soldier as a cheesy ’80s action flick a la Die Hard and RoboCop, complete with a tough-as-nails voiceover, Wilhelm screams, and people getting kicked through exploding plate glass windows. If this were actually becoming a movie it would almost definitely be a flop. Still, if John McClane is Steve Rogers in some far-flung parallel dimension, we want to visit it.

Studio plans to remake ‘90s Stallone action flick ‘Cliffhanger’

It seems cheesy ‘80s and ‘90s action movies aren’t doomed to late night TV anymore. Cliffhanger, a 1993 action flick starring Sylvester Stallone as a mountain climbing rescuer, is in discussions to be “reimagined” according to Deadline. The report says that production company StudioCanal has a screenwriter on board to bring the movie back to life, though few details are available.

Cliffhanger is certainly a surprising film for a remake, though it did do well back in the early ‘90s. The story centers on Stallone, who gets tied up in a heist of a US Treasury plane carrying millions. Stallone is sent in to rescue the thieves when the plane goes down on the mountains — but he has no idea what he’s in for. Stallone actually had a hand in the…

How to seamlessly integrate CG and live action

Read more about How to seamlessly integrate CG and live action at CreativeBloq.com


The core of great VFX remains the same, but new tools are constantly changing how we work. The new ones I’ve added to my belt recently are photogrammetry and real-time raytracing. Photogrammetry, the process of building 3D elements from photography, has been around since the 1990s, but Autodesk’s 123D makes it free, easy to use and, most importantly, reliable.
