This was a bit of contractually-dictated press puffery which didn’t accurately reflect Andy’s participation in that first film. Fact is, Andy’s physical participation in the first film was nonexistent. The first shot, Gollum alone in h ... < < < more > > > less < < <

From the Alien Weyland Yutani Archive: "During Alien's pre-production, Ridley Scott drew up a story board presentation of Alien for 20th Century Fox. Impressed with what Ridley had presented they doubled the budget from $4.5 million to $8.5 million. These storyboards are known as 'Ridleygrams'. This story board presentation contains ... < < < more > > > less < < <

Take a hint, TERMINATOR 4 Producers!

"Arguably the most startling thing about "District 9" -- which exceeded all commercial expectations by hauling in $37 million over opening weekend -- is that it cost just $30 million to produce. That’s peanuts in Hollywood, especially when compared with the price of, say, the advertising blitz for "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." ... < < < more > > > less < < <

excerpt: "For almost a decade, Kubrick has been developing a film project known as AI (as in artificial intelligence), which promises to graduate from computers to an android who thinks, is self-aware, and ages. Inspired by "Super-Toys Last All Summer Long," the short story by British author Brian Aldiss (see page 134), AI is set in a ... < < < more > > > less < < <
