How ‘Furious 7’ Created a CGI Version of Paul Walker For His Unfinished Scenes

Published

on

With the untimely passing of Paul Walker midway through the production of Furious 7, now in theaters, it was questioned for months how they would replace the unfinished shots needed with the star. Many stories were circulated including the complete scrapping of the film, but with the help of CGI and Paul’s brothers Cody and Caleb Walker they were able to finish the movie and fill in the gaps that Paul had not yet finished.Universal Studios has created what could be toted as the largest and most profitable original film franchise of the last twenty years.

Yes, the films has its quirky and outrageously unrealistic stunts but overall it’s exactly what many go to the movies to enjoy. Over the last 14 years we have watched an undercover FBI agent and a street racer by the name of Dominic Toretto sweep the box office in the hunt for James Bond like stunts and action scenes. Though when the unexpected death of Paul Walker shook the world in late 2013 the movie was put on hold and then reworked to release almost a year later.

It has been confirmed that WETA, the well known digital effects company, recreated Walker in the final scenes of the film. This is the same team that brought you Gollum in The Lord of the Rings and Caesar in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. I have seen the film and could not find one scene in question outside of the one making the rounds on Twitter currently from one of the final scenes in the movie. At first glance and especially while in the theater I didn’t think much of it until analyzing the image later that it was indeed a slightly different than what I had seen in the rest of the film. In my own opinion, I thought the movie was very well done considering one of the major stars passed midway through production. It’s astounding what we can do with post production and Furious 7 paid outstanding respect to a fallen costar in the best way possible. What do you think? Do you see the difference, or would you have noticed while in the theatre?

Now, this is not a new trick production companies are pushing out but of course it’s become much easier to pull off with companies such as WETA at the helm. Check out more of their work at the link provided and be sure to sound off in the comments below as to what you think about the added scenes of Paul Walker.

Michelle Rodriguez Change from childhood to 2019 (Then and Now)

Published

on

Michelle Rodriguez – american actress, screenwriter, and DJ. Rodriguez spent her childhood shuttled between the Dominican Republic, Texas and Puerto Rico. She landed her first role in the film Girlfight after beating out 350 other hopeful actresses who auditioned for the lead. Rodriguez endured months of intense physical training in preparation for her role as the angry and fearless Diana Guzman. It paid off—the role garnered her rave reviews from audiences and critics alike. She also won the Gotham Award for Breakthrough performance. Roles in the telefilm 3 A.M., opposite Danny Glover and Pam Grier, and feature films The Fast And The Furious starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker and Resident Evil (2002) followed.

In 2005 she joined the cast of the hit ABC series Lost, playing tough girl Ana-Lucia Cortez. While in Hawaii shooting the series, Rodriguez was arrested on a DUI. The incident violated her California probation for a hit and run DUI and driving with a suspended license.

She served 65 hours out of a five day sentence behind bars in Hawaii, and was due to serve 60 days in jail in California, but spent just over four hours there before being released due to overcrowding. Her bout with the law didn’t hurt her career, however, as she landed a starring role in James Cameron’s mega-hit Avatar (2009), then she had the opportunity to return to the Fast & Furious franchise with Fast & Furious 6 (2013).

She also starred in Machete Kills(2013) alongside Danny Trejo and Sofia Vergara, and Furious 7 (2015) alongside Vin Diesel. Michelle’s latest credits include the action thriller The Assignment (2017) with Sigourney Weaver, the animated comedy Smurfs: The Lost Village (2017) with Julia Roberts and Joe Manganiello, and the action thriller The Fate of the Furious (2017), in which she reprises her role as Letty ‘Ortiz’ Toretto alongside Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson.

Paul Walker’s Daughter Awarded $10.1 Million In Lawsuit Over His Death

Published

on

The 19-year-old reached a settlement with the estate of Roger Rodas, the driver who was also killed.Meadow Walker, the 19-year-old daughter of actor Paul Walker, has been awarded $10.1 million in a settlement with the estate of Roger Rodas. Both Rodas and Walker died when the Porsche Carrera GT Rodas was driving crashed and exploded Nov., 20, 2013.

”The amount paid by the estate of Roger Rodas into a trust for Meadow Walker only covers a fraction of what her father would have earned as an international movie star had his life not tragically been cut short,” Meadow’s lawyer Jeff Milam said in a statement to People on Thursday. “Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash. Meadow’s lawsuit against Porsche AG — a $13 billion corporation — intends to hold the company responsibly for producing a vehicle that was defective and caused Paul Walker’s death.”

On Monday, a judge ruled that there was not enough evidence to prove that Porsche was responsible for the crash in the lawsuit brought by the Rodas estate. However, Meadow’s lawyer says that ruling has no impact on his client’s case against the car company.”The issues in the cases are very different,” Milam said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “The federal case was filed on behalf of Roger Rodas, who was the driver of the Porsche Carrera GT and was killed instantly upon impact. Meadow’s father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle’s defects. A significant portion of the judge’s decision was based on his rejection of evidence because of missed deadlines and also a failure to sue Porshe AG, the manufacturer. Meadow will continue the fight to hold Porsche accountable for selling a defective product that kills.”PAUL WALKER

Daughter’s Lawyer Says PORSCHE’S VICTORY IS IRRELEVANTPorsche will have to pay up dearly in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Paul Walker’s daughter, despite the car company’s win against the driver’s widow … so says Meadow Walker’s lawyer. Attorney Jeff Milam tells TMZ, Porsche’s big victory will have no impact on Meadow’s case … for several reasons. First, a federal judge ruled against Roger Rodas’ widow, and Meadow has filed in a different legal system … L.A. County Superior Court.

The federal dismissal has no bearing on Meadow’s case. Even more important, Milam says Rodas was killed instantly upon impact, adding, “Meadow’s father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle’s defects.” TMZ broke the story, the judge in the Rodas case ruled the claim that the fuel cell was compromised in the crash is irrelevant, because it has nothing to do with the cause of his death. Meadow’s lawyer is claiming the fire was the cause of Paul’s demise, and he’d still be alive were it not for a defect in the cell. Milam says, “Meadow will continue the fight to hold Porsche accountable for selling a defective product that kills.”
