The Top Movies Of 2013

4. INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS The Coen brothers might be the closest thing to a sure bet to making my top ten list but in all honesty the first time I saw their latest I was underwhelmed. Cut to a second viewing and repeated obsessive listening to a beautiful soundtrack, and I'm in love with it all. It just gets richer and richer. http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2013/12/17/the-best-movies-of-2013/

'Elysium' VFX Supervisor Dishes On 'Chappie,' Game Spinoffs And Blowing Droids To Bits

"But his thoughts of immersiveness plays a secondary role to where he's thinking, 'We could do a game of this film, or we could do this.'" He couldn't say whether we'd be seeing the HULC suit or the world of "Elysium" appearing in games anytime soon, but Muyzers says early in the process of shooting the film, "There was some kind of talk about using a games-type approach to some of the shots, but [Blompkamp] wanted it to feel overall like a feature film." To that end, the crew experimented with this aesthetic in throughout the shoot, going so far as to invent a new camera that evolved the "Bullet Time" aesthetic of the "Matrix" films (you can see it in the slow-mo mech explosion). "We created a new camera rig called the Arc Rig, which is an array of Canon 5D still cameras that all create video at the same time. So a little like [the "Matrix" films'] 'Bullet Time,' Still, that specific visual only made its way into the earthbound gun battle/heist early in the film. http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2013/12/17/elysium-vfx-supervisor/

If Katniss Faced Tauriel From 'The Hobbit,' Evangeline Lilly Knows Who Would Win

Any movie that's going to have Greek gods and half-breeds in it is going to need some impressive special effects work to back up the creatures.

As anyone who has seen the movie knows, Tyson is a cyclops, and putting one eye on an actor is harder than you might expect.

'Percy Jackson: Sea Of Monsters' Blu-ray Exclusive: Behind The Creature Effects

There was "Phone Booth," then "Buried," and even "ATM." But "Freezer" might take the cake. "Freezer," as you might imagine, is about a man who is trapped in a bathroom. Okay, we're lying. http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2013/12/12/you-have-to-watch-the-trailer-for-freezer/

Exclusive 'The Legend Of Hercules' Photos: Kellan Lutz Is A Man And A God

You Have To Watch The Trailer For 'Freezer'

It may have started with "Batman Begins," but the superhero origin story is still a popular route to go when tackling an iconic character on the big screen. Just last year, we saw Superman get rebooted with "Man of Steel," and next year, one of the world's first superheroes is getting an origin story of his own. In "The Legend of Hercules," "Twilight" star" Kellan Lutz is taking on the role of the legendary half-god and taking him all the way back to his roots. We've scored a whole bunch of exclusive photos from "The Legend of Hercules," including several of Lutz in various kind of sheets and armor, if you're into that kind of thing.
