It does look quite good, and it's nice to see Denzel Washington working with Tony Scott again, but aside from the almost-obligatory post work and some limited visual effects (which are present in most films - even Polanski's Oliver Twist had some VFX), I'm not sure how relevant this post is to a CG forum......

Thanx for the reply
yea i have had coments like this on some of my previous posts, I guess at times it becomes unclear weather or not certain links should be posted in the cg news section. The reason I posted is because i noticed some vfx in the trailer, so i assumed that this film would have quite a bit of cg in it. I have also seen some posts to do with operating systems and also computer hardware, so in some way that kinda blurs the line for me. Mods please move this thread if you see fit.

Regarding the movie, yea it looks great, with a lineup including Tony Scott, Jerry Bruckheimer, Denzel Washington, and Harry Gregson Williams on the sound, its got me pretty excited.

Harry Gregson Williams on the sound, its got me pretty excited.

I didn't know he was doing the score - I'm a fan of his work (although you can totally hear where the MGS theme came from if you listen to the Speed main theme, which I only recently noticed).

And yeah, sometimes posting stuff like this can be a grey area, although I'm fairly sure that this one falls short of the criteria, even though there are some visual effects in the trailer. I'm guessing that there'll be more explosions and gun-battles than CG work in this movie, if Scott's previous efforts are anything to go by.

Still, thanks for posting.

So I wouldn't exactly call that "limited visual effects". :)

heheheh, very clever.:) The effect that cought my attention is when they show four days in the past, it was exactly how I imagined looking through time would look like, reminds me of the a string theory explanation I heard.

Woa... looks nice; one of my favorite movies ever is Crimson Tide, so im really excited about this one, it reunites almost the whole group; i wasn´t a big fan of Domino btw, so i hope Scott can control himself with this outting, putting the storytelling first and the style next, and not the other way.

edit: that girl looks a lot like halle berry :surprised

The effect is nicked from advert i saw a while back where they do a timeslice with a long exposure, kinda like a moving the camera with slowsynch, or firing a slave maybe a third to a half later. Wish i knew the advert, maybe orange or vodaphone..


haha im awesome! - its orange's muck about advert:

Well, that's not immediately apparent by the content of the trailer, nor the premise of the movie itself. I am glad that there's considerable CG work in the movie, and I really liked their work on The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, so I'm really looking forward to this now. I think they worked on Man on Fire, too.....

Deja Vu...yes it is. the title is justified by the impression of deja vu in this trailer.
same voice than in other trailers, same structure in the montage, same sounds, musics, dialogues, explosions etc..

:rolleyes:
