Hi again,

In El Portal del 3D y la Animación you can find an interview Robert Zemeckis, the director of 'The Polar Express', Ken Ralston, the visual effects supervisor, and Steve Starkey, the producer, on the making of this amazing movie. You can find this interview in spanish and english languages.

Here you have the link to this interview in english:

I hope this could be interesting for you.

This is quite a find, thank you.

I've got no problem with this kind of film-making, and I wish them the best. I've yet to see the final result, so I can't judge it...but I'm wondering how well this movie is doing in the theaters? Any results, anyone?

I thought about $150. But the IMAX version is also already over $100 mil, isn't it?

Yeah, sorry I didn't include the IMAX numbers. That'll help a bit.
