Hardcore Henry is the world’s first fully first-person action movie, in which the audience sees from the point of view of the main character. That’s a simple idea, but making it happen was insanely complicated—and dangerous. People were, at times, flirting with death. But for director Ilya Naishuller and star Sharlto…
Ever played a game like Halo or Call of Duty and thought, “Why don’t they just make movies like this? First person action films where you can do or kill any and everything?” Well, now they have. It’s called Hardcore Henry.
Image Engine, the Vancouver-based special effects company that worked on Neill Blomkamp’s Chappie, has posted up a VFX breakdown reel that shows just how they transformed Sharlto Copley into the film’s titular robot.
Chappie, the childlike super-genius robot, is the best thing about Chappie, the movie. And a large part of that is due to Sharlto Copley’s insane performance, done via motion capture. We’ve got an exclusive clip from the movie’s DVD featurettes that shows how Copley created the character.
Sharlto Copley (District 9) brought the titular robot of Chappie to life, thanks to performance capture and director Neill Blomkamp, but as it turns out everyone wanted him dead. We spoke with the Chappie'scast — Copley, Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver — about the violence they inflicted upon this adorable robot.
We've had a bevy of casting news for Sony's adaptation of Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming's comic already, but today comes the big one: Elysium's Sharlto Copley will be the superhero-related homicide investigator Christian Walker, while Michelle Forbes will play the superheroine Retro girl.

Great news, we're finally going to see the space horror flick Europa Report! Magnet has purchased the rights to Sebastián Cordero's found footage film, starring Sharlto Copley.

Oh hell, Neill Blomkamp's Elysium looks cool. We can not wait to see District 9's Neill Blomkamp and Sharlto Copley teamed up one more time. Copley plays the demented henchmen named Kruger, left on Earth to police the garbage planet, while the rich dine in the classy space station called Elysium.
Why is Matt Damon bald? Why is Sharlto Copley's character so insane? Why does everyone on the awesome high tech space station for rich people still use paper 150 years into the future? We rounded up the cast of Neill Blomkamp's new class warfare action movie Elysium and got answers, on camera.
We've seen possible footage from the mysterious space flick The Europa Report, which is about a team of astronauts headed out to explore one of Jupiter's moons. This newly released production still reveals yet another sweeping view of the gorgeous ship.
Very little is known about Sebastián Cordero's space exploration flick, The Europa Report. The only clues we have are a small plot description: "A crew of international astronauts are sent on a private mission to Jupiter's fourth moon." But just recently a viral site for the flick appeared, and it's stuffed with…
Neill Blomkamp and Sharlto Copley blew our minds with District 9. Can they do it again with Elysium, a far-future political thriller set on another planet? Let's hope so: They've got a budget, now they're lining up distributors and actors.
