Filmed on location in New Zealand, the meticulously designed production, with
visual effects by an international team of artists, was four years in the
making! Also in this issue: Simon Wells' (grandson of H.G. Wells) adaptation of
the science fiction classic, The Time Machine, with effects from Digital
Domain and make-up effects by Stan Winston Studio. Plus, Ridley Scott's Black
Hawk Down, and the Gale Anne Hurd production of Clockstoppers.
