The issue covers three films that ILM contributed visual effects to: Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Revenant and Spectre.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Walt Disney Pictures and Lucasfilm Ltd. present the beginning of a new trilogy set in a distant galaxy, 30 years after the fall of the evil Emperor Palpatine, in which regional governors jockey for power, and survivors of the Rebel Alliance and the last order of Jedi Knights confront new Imperial threats. Director J.J. Abrams conjures exotic worlds and bizarre creatures, working with visual effects supervisor Roger Guyett, special effects supervisor Chris Corbould, special makeup effects supervisor Neal Scanlan and artists at Industrial Light & Magic, Base FX, Kelvin Optical, Blind Ltd., Propshop and Imaginarium Studios.
The Revenant
Leonardo DiCaprio stars in this 1820s drama about a frontiersman who, after being mauled by a bear, seeks revenge against those who left him for dead. Celebrated Birdman director Alejandro Iñárritu helmed the project, with visual effects by ILM, One of Us, Cinesite, MPC Montreal, Soho VFX, and Vitality Visual Effects, and creature effects supervised by Mark Rappaport
Skyfall director Sam Mendes returns to helm the newest Bond feature, Spectre, which pits 007 (Daniel Craig) against a sinister organization out to bring down MI6. Chris Corbould orchestrated Bond-scale practical effects on stage and on location, while artists at ILM London delivered spectacular visual effects shots, under the supervision of visual effects supervisor Mark Curtis.
