Spend the holidays with Friends

Tuesday, December 1, 2015

 

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood has unveiled a brand new festooned display inside Stage 48: Script to Screen, inviting Studio Tour guests to spend this holiday season with “Friends.” Originally home to the iconic sitcom that ran for ten years on network television (1994 - 2004), Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood offers fans the rare opportunity to visit a special holiday display featuring vignettes and artifacts from beloved series “Friends” on the festively decorated holiday Studio Tour. 

 

The inviting scent of mulled cinnamon and nutmeg, along with garland and wreaths adorning Central Perk Café, set the tone as guests enter Stage 48: Script to Screen through the main lobby. Inside, the real Central Perk set is dressed in spirit of the season, and special holiday-themed “Friends” props and costumes have been brought out from the Warner Bros. Archives for a limited time only.

 

The display features the Holiday Armadillo from season seven episode “The One with the Holiday Armadillo,” in which Ross invents Santa’s friend after failing to source a Santa costume so close to Christmas. As “Santa’s Jewish friend,” the Holiday Armadillo hoped to introduce Ben, Ross’ son, to the joys of Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights and to appreciate his Jewish heritage. The Holiday Armadillo costume is joined by Joey’s Superman costume, which Joey donned as he stormed into the apartment while Ross struggled to tell Ben the story of Hanukkah in the midst of Santa Claus’ presence.

 

Additionally, fans can check out the turkey head Joey wore in a Thanksgiving flashback Phoebe recalls during season five episode “The One with all the Thanksgivings.” Joey put a turkey on his head to scare Chandler, but instead it got stuck and Joey, Phoebe and Monica struggled to get it off. The same turkey head can be seen again on Monica later in the episode when she seeks Chandler’s forgiveness for severing his toe and attempts to cheer him up by putting the turkey on her head. Monica’s unexpected gesture and cute quirkiness led Chandler to inadvertently tell Monica he loved her for the first time in their relationship.

 

Want to spend this holiday season with “Friends” at Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood? You can visit seven days a week with Studio Tours departing every 15 minutes.

Horror Made Here

Friday, October 2, 2015

Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood unveiled a brand new experience for fright fans as Horror Made Here made its debut. Featured inside the newly-opened Stage 48: Script to Screen and available for a limited time only especially for Halloween, Horror Made Here offers guests the opportunity to discover behind-the-scenes filmmaking secrets from some of Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema’s more sinister titles.

For a limited time only until Sunday 1st November, guests can get up close to iconic props and costumes from some of studio’s best-known horror films, as well as admire the art of horror make-up and prosthetics in a display created especially for the Studio Tour by Oscar®-winning special effects expert Christien Tinsley.

Freddy Krueger’s glove from Nightmare on Elm Street, the original cracked bedroom door from The Exorcist and the sinister stunt doll from Annabelle are showcased amongst a collection of ghoulish film props in the attraction’s Stage 48: Script to Screen. Unearthed from Warner Bros. Archives especially for the occasion, the authentic artifacts also include the spell book and wooden staff with totems and crystals from Practical Magic as well as the music box and ‘Miss Me?’ notes from The Conjuring.

Christien Tinsley, who was honored with an Academy Award® for Best Technical Achievement, received an Oscar® nomination for his work on The Passion of the Christ, and three Primetime Emmy nominations for Outstanding Prosthetic Make-Up on American Horror Story, Glee and Nip/Tuck has constructed a unique exhibit which demonstrates the step-by-step development of practical creature effects for horror films. Guests are able to see the process behind incredibly-detailed prosthetic special effects make-up. The artist’s display takes guests through the creative process, from design, sculpting and molding to painting and application (highlighted with tools, reference images and special effects supplies).

A spooky photo opportunity adds the final touch to the Horror Made Here experience; inviting guests to take the ultimate head shot. The final effect, achieved by a mirror illusion, shows guests with their head on a platter and provides fright fans with a fun memento of their visit.
