  4. [UPDATED] Wondering Who Did the Voiceover Work for the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer?

    My Paaaalpatiiiiiiine!

    On first inspection, the voice in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer sounded a great deal like Benedict Cumberbatch (who still refuses to talk about Star Wars) to me. Names like Andy Serkis and Max von Sydow were also being tossed into the ring. Over the weekend, movie critics were saying they had confirmation of Serkis but weren't even giving vague sources so I remained skeptical. But Good Morning America has claimed it definitively as an exclusive.

    There And Back Again

  13. Planet of the Apes Fan Judy Greer Lives the Dream, Is Cast as the Female Ape Lead in Rise of the Planet of the Apes

    Mutatis Mutandis

    I'm just going to go ahead and put the best part of Judy Greer's interview with Vulture about her Apes casting right up front: "It's funny, because when I talk to my [Planet of the Apes-obsessed] husband about the movie, he's like, 'I don't want to know! I do want to know! Do you think you should tell me? Don't tell me!" Poor guy.

  14. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Casts Jason Clarke As Its New James Franco

    Officially Official

    We already knew that James Franco probably wouldn't be facing off against any damn dirty apes in Matt Reeves' Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, the sequel to 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes. And now we know who'll be fulfilling the role of ostensible-lead-because-they're-human-but-really-we-all-know-Andy-Serkis-is-the-star-here: Zero Dark Thirty's Jason Clarke.

  16. James Franco Might Not Be In Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, But As Long As Andy Serkis Is Still There We’re Cool

    I'll Allow It

    Dawn of the Planet of the Apes might find itself James Franco-less. In an interview with MTV, the Rise of the Planet of the Apes star has said that he might not be in the movie's sequel at all, or if he is, it might be in a very small role. I'm OK with that. I don't think anyone came out of the (surprisingly good) Rise of the Planet of the Apes, saying "Man, that James Franco did a good job." I mean, he did. I think he did. I don't really remember. The majority of my post-Rise thoughts were more along the lines of "Andy Serkis, YOU ARE A GIFT!"

  17. Forget Boring Interview Questions! Why Not Engage the Cast of The Hobbit In a Game of FMK? [VIDEO]

    Questions! Questions That Need Answering

    Get More: Movie Trailers, Movies Blog

    What, did you think that because The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has come out we would stop posting The Hobbit stuff? Oh, you sweet summer child. MTV's Josh Horowitz sat down with Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, and Andy Serkis for a round of Middle Earth-themed FMK, that most mature of games wherein you must decide which of three people (or people/Hobbit/orc/dragon/fiery disembodied eye, in this case) you would marry, which you would kill, and which you would, er, "have relations with." All of them take the questions quite seriously. (via: A.V. Club) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  18. Here’s All The Hobbit Stuff We Didn’t Post Yesterday

    There And Back Again

    We've been restraining ourselves from posting too much stuff about The Hobbit because, lets face it, this is not a LotR only blog and we would be straining at least a few people's patience. So here's all The Hobbit stuff from yesterday that we didn't post because we'd already done like two posts related to The Hobbit and dangit, The Hobbit people calm down with your premiere pictures, unreleased photos, funny quotes, new behind the scenes footage, and Colbert Report interviews. Oh also the Doubleclicks have a new Christmas song that's particularly appropriate this year.

  20. Andy Serkis is Mo-Capping a Family-Friendly Version of Animal Farm

    Andy Serkis has spent enough time in a Mo-cap suit to know what it takes to tell a compelling story using digital characters created from real-world performances. The man who made Gollum is planning on using that knowledge to good use: Serkis has announced that he will direct an adaptation of George Orwell's political allegory Animal Farm, which will rely heavily on performance-capture to transform animated versions of the story's talking animals into compelling characters.
