So that’s a BIG Congratulations going out to Andy Serkis! He’s on FIRE these days!  Right on the heels of being honored at CinemaCon with the Vanguard award for his amazing work in performance capture, an art form he has pioneered and because of it has changed the world of acting.

That’s it for now! May the force be with you!
