This will be interesting for sure. Im glad to see Polar doing as well as it has so far in theatres and from what most people say, the IMAX version is a must see!

Heard Doug Chang did some of the matte paintings as well as alot of the concept art. Was refreshing to see a cg movie not go all plastic looking with tons of ambiant lighting.
