A-D-I–N-U-G-R-O-H-O has drawn this brilliant A4 color pencil portrait of Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man from ‘Iron Man 3.’ I strongly recommend giving A-D-I–N-U-G-R-O-H-O’s page a look, this is just one of a number of excellent pieces to feast your eyes on.

With the film landing in cinemas on February 14th, 20th Century Fox has unleashed this new clip from the fifth installment in the Die Hard series, ’A Good Day To Die Hard.’ Lead by Bruce Willis, who’s reprising his iconic role of John McClane, and Jai Courtney, who’s portraying McClane’s son Jack, ‘A Good Day To Die Hard’ co-stars Sebastian Koch, Yulia Snigir, Cole Hauser, Amaury Nolasco, Megalyn Echikunwoke and Anne Vyalitsyna. Directed by John Moore (Max Payne), ‘A Good Day To Die Hard’ brings John McClane to Russia for more action-packed shenanigans. My interview with Jai Courtney for the film can be read here (more to come).
The synopsis for ‘A Good Day To Die Hard’ is as follows: “Since the first Die Hard in 1988, John McClane has found himself in the wrong place at the wrong time, with the skills and attitude to always be the last man standing, making him enemy #1 for terrorists the world over. Now, McClane faces his greatest challenge ever, this time on an international stage, when his estranged son Jack is caught up in the daring prison escape of a rogue Russian leader, and father and son McClane must work together to keep each other alive and keep the world safe for democracy.”
Planet Baab’s most celebrated space traveler, Scorch Supernova (Brendan Fraser), is a global hero whose interplanetary exploits are televised for the enjoyment of his ardent fans. With the help of his brainy brother Gary (Rob Corddry), head BASA Mission Control, Scorch has become a legend, winning the love of beautiful television reporter Gabby Babblebrock (Sofia Vergara) and the devotion of Gary’s hero-worshipping son Kip (Jonathan Morgan Heit). When BASA’s no-nonsense chief, Lena (Jessica Alba), intercepts a distress signal from the Dark Planet, a notoriously dangerous world in the far reaches of the universe, Scorch jumps at the chance to attempt the once-in-a-lifetime rescue mission. But Gary tries to discourage his bother from making the trip, knowing that no intergalactic explorer has ever returned from the faraway world (also known as Earth). ‘Escape from Planet Earth’ will be released on February 15th in the US. As of yet, still no word on a UK release date. The voice cast also includes Craig Robinson, Sarah Jessica Parker, William Shatner, George Lopez and Jane Lynch.
With ‘Escape from Planet Earth’ being your first animated film, how did you find the process of voice recording? I can imagine that it’s a very different way of capturing a performance?
Jessica Alba: Definitely! It was really interesting to do – I look forward to getting better at it (laughs). I felt like I finally got the hang of it in my last session, I was like, “I wish the whole thing was like this!” (laughs). But it was nice having the freedom to be very playful and silly, because your face isn’t on camera, so you can have any kind of expression! You don’t have the director coming over and saying, “Can you please not make that face when you say that?” (laughs).
