Hollywood special effects offer spectacular creations or re-creations that make claims to our attention on the grounds of their 'incredible-seeming reality'. They can appear both 'incredible' and 'real', their appeal based on their ability to 'convince' - to appear real in terms such as detail and texture - and on their status as fabricated spectacle, to be admired as such.

They can appear both 'incredible' and 'real', their appeal based on their ability to 'convince' - to appear real in terms such as detail and texture - and on their status as fabricated spectacle, to be admired as such. At a seemingly very different end of the audio-visual media spectrum, 'reality' television offers the spectacle of, supposedly, the 'real' itself, a 'reality' that ranges from the banality of the quotidian to intense interpersonal engagements (two extremes experienced in Big Brother, for example). The two also overlap, however, nowhere more clearly and jarringly than in the ultimate 'spectacle of the real', the destruction of the World Trade Center in New York, live television coverage of which evoked constant comparison with big-screen fictional images. Impressions of the 'real' or the 'authentic' (or the authentic-seeming) are valued as forms of media spectacle in a number of other contemporary media forms. Other examples include the 'uncanny' verisimilitude of the latest developments in computer-generated animation displayed in films such as Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within (2001) and Shrek (2001), and the recent tendency to include scenes of real sexual intercourse in more 'legitimate' forms of cinema (even if this has been confined to the 'continental art film' sector). The aim of this edited collection is to explore some of the issues emerging from this fascination with both the impression of 'reality' and the fact that it is often presented and experienced as a form of spectacle; or, alternatively, the fascination with the spectacular and the fact that it is often considered in terms of its apparent 'realism'. Broad questions that will be explored through the examination of a wide range of textual material concern the nature and different forms of both 'spectacle' and of 'the real' .
