speedracer-mar27-03.jpg

    Another fresh package of images, this time being from what we think will be one of the summer’s biggest hits, Speed Racer. We can honestly tell our self that Speed Racer will be a blockbuster favorite because of what we seen so far, and a bonus that includes the magic touch of The Wachowski Brothers. Luckily our hands got some of the few new images, as well as some of the quotes, including detailed explanations behind the visual style straight from multiple visual effects supervisors.

8 DALSA 4K Origin Cameras To Be Used In Quantum Of Solace

March 25, 2008

   It was announced today, by DALSA Digital Cinema, that there will be a visual effects shot in film ,Quantum of Solace, that will use 8 DALSA 4K cameras.  We do not know much about the cameras because the company is keeping the details to themselves.  All we know is that the sequence involves 8 shutter-synchronized DALSA 4K Origin cameras shooting simultaneously.    Kevin Tod Haug, the visual effects designer, made the choice of using DALSA for the film.  

“The DALSA Origin was the only uncompressed, high-resolution, low-noise camera system we could count on to do what we needed to do. The folks at DALSA were completely supportive of all our complex needs. We could not have done this sequence without them.” 

After they used the cameras, David Stump, the consulting VFX cinematographer, had this to say,

“Working with uncompressed 4K gave us the ability to mine the maximum amount of detail from the scene. The low noise floor of the DALSA enabled us see every nuance of detail from the dark blacks of the clothing.” 

Rob Hummel, President of DALSA Digital Cinema, had this to say about the experience,

“We were incredibly excited to be chosen for this complex part of the movie.  It was amazing as we watched all eight cameras shooting and pouring data into the CODEX disc units. In total, we recorded over 3.8 gigabytes of image data every second. After a year of fine tuning the DALSA camera system, we felt we were ready to put the camera to the test. Of course, passing this particularly tough test, with eight cameras synchronized together, was the best outcome I could imagine!”

March 21, 2008

    On the official site for Indy 4, there is a new video of Shia LaBeouf talking and training for his adventure with Indiana Jones. The video is very interesting and makes me want to see the movie even more. The feature video shows Shia training to use a sword and it also shows him playing around with an knife. I can’t imagine how cool it must be for Shia, to be making this movie with Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford. And hearing John Williams’ music during the video just brings back that old movie magic feeling, simply beautiful. You can check it out here. Let us know what you think of the video.

March 21, 2008

    Paramount Pictures has released the firsts photos of Snake Eye from the upcoming film G.I Joe. My opinion is that the costume seems pretty much too CGI, but still looks great and i believe the Snake Eyes will be amazing in the movie. In a USA Today article, director Stephen Sommers talks about Snake Eye and says “He’s the world’s greatest ninja, but he’s also next-generation. He’s not afraid to use a sword one second, and a split-second later he’s pulling out his Glock.”

Well, it is finally here, the teaser trailer for ‘The Incredible Hulk’ . The trailer is pretty entertaining, the cgi looks pretty good as well. It’s impossible to tell if the film looks better than the first ‘Hulk’, since the trailer for the first one wasn’t too bad itself. There are only a few shots of the Hulk and Abomination as the trailer mostly follows Bruce Banner. Check the trailer out for yourself.

   Iron Man will be released in numerous international markets on April 30th, 2008 but will still be released in the U.S on May 2nd, 2008.  This stinks!  Now everyone will have to try and avoid spoilers for the movie.  If a movie comes out on a certain day, it should be released the same day everywhere else.  Originally, this is what Paramount Pictures International announced would happen at Showest.  Oh well, just got to be careful after April 30th.
