Gut Renovation

Welcome to Williamsburg, New York's new bohemia. Or is it? In the late 1980s artists moved into this working class neighborhood, populated by small manufacturers, Polish butchers, and auto repair shops, just across the East River. SoHo took 30 years to change from an artists' bohemia to an art gallery hotspot, to an outdoor shopping mall; Williamsburg's demise has been much faster, due in part to a 2005 zoning law change.

Joo Ji Hoon, Hong Ji Young Reteam For Third Time

There’s a new romantic comedy film in the works by director Hong Ji Young of Naked Kitchen, and she’s looking to reunite with Joo Ji Hoon (Five Fingers) for a third time (she also did some work on the script for Antique Bakery). Exciting, since those are the projects of his that I like most.

"Evil Dead" Remake With No CG Effects

Fede Alvarez, the director behind the upcoming "Evil Dead" remake, is extremely proud of one particular fact about his film - there is not a single instance of CGI (computer effects). Alvarez talked with io9 about doing the film entirely practically with make-up and prosthetics:

"We didn't do any CGI in the movie. There's no CGI in the movie. Everything you will see is real, which was really demanding. This was a very long shoot, 70 days of shooting at night.
