Really, they'd be rushing around collecting revisions to go into the next scheduled quarterly public data update, not publishing them immediately, but you have to embellish things a little for Hollywood.

This LEGO AT-ACT from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story strides through the palm trees

1 Share

Builder Ben Cossy intended to make a small scene set on the planet Scarif from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but ended up with an imperial sized project, creating this stunning AT-ACT Walker.  The bulkier sister to the standard AT-AT, this walker has a heavier animalistic design, consistent with its construction site deployment.  Ben taps right into this aesthetic, imbuing his model with a weighty sense of gravitas, doubling the hinged knee joint on its longer legs, as well as triple plating the armoured body.  Yet, it’s that first decision to situate the composition on the planet surface, where the AT-ACT can tower over the tiny palm trees, that truly captures its ominous sense of scale.

We Have RDJ to Thank for That Emotional Scene in Avengers: Infinity War

1 Share

Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland in Avengers- Infinity War (2018)

We were all emotionally wrecked by Infinity War in multiple ways, but the near-universal gut punch was witnessing our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man fall victim of Thanos’ bullshit environmentalism.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, in the commentary track for the film, the Russo brothers reveal that, initially, the drawn out scene between Peter and Tony wasn’t supposed to last that long. Like most of the characters, he was supposed to maybe get a few words out and then crumble into dust. “If I remember correctly, it was [in the script] ‘I don’t feel too good.’ Tony looked down at him. He said, ‘I’m sorry’ and disappeared,” Joe Russo says in the commentary.

However, the brilliant, beautiful, and cruel mind of Robert Downey Jr. knew that it would be more emotional if the scene was dragged out to really get the impact of the bond that we’ve seen develop between Peter and Tony between the three films they’ve been in together. Considering the fact that Tony found himself responsible for this teenage boy, it’s a great reminder that when Tony is calling Peter “kid,” it’s not just a nickname.

“At the end of the day, he kept driving: put more and more emotion into it, and just went up to Tom and said, ‘You don’t want to go because you’re a child. And you’re using your strength as Spider-Man to fight this,'” Anthony Russo says. “And then that was the performance that came out.”

He adds, “It was a pretty spectacular performance for a 21-year-old actor.”

Um … thanks, RDJ? It says a lot about a film when you can logically know that they are going to find a way to correct this slaughter, but you still find yourself emotionally devastated. But it also shows how much the cast and crew believe and trust each other in making these sorts of creative choices. Whatever comes next in Avengers 4 is going to be the end of a golden era of comic book movies, and while I’m excited to see what comes next, I’m also sad to know we are gonna very likely going to say goodbye to many of the characters we’ve come to love.

The Star Wars Rebels Season 4 Blu-ray Is a Fitting Tribute to the Series and Franchise

If the Star Wars Rebels season 4 Blu-ray was only 15 minutes long, it would still be worth the purchase. That’s because the release (which has about seven hours of content, don’t worry) includes an incredible 15-minute featurette called “Forces of Rebellion,” which is just series executive producer Dave Filoni talking…
