News From the NAB
+ Avatar producer Jon Landau has revealed during the NAB Technology Summit on Cinema that the upcoming sequels to James Cameron’s 2009 sci-fi blockbuster will utilize new technologies to motion capture performances under water. Rather than simulate the water in CG, Landau notes that in-tank capture will allow artists to get performance information on the actors’ facial expressions and experiences in the water. Motion-capture with digital character replacement was a key element of the first Avatar film. Landau also revealed the sequel team is considering utilizing high frame rate (as seen in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit), which doubles the standard 24 frames per second to 48fps—despite some critics and theater-goers complaints about the effect of HFR on the viewing experience.
First 'Man of Steel' TV Spot Has Some New Footage
Warner Bros. has released the first TV spot for Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. While it features the same Kevin Costner voiceover and the same music as the previously released teasers and trailers (see "Full 'Man of Steel' Trailer"), there are a few tantalizing seconds of new footage.
Snyder’s film, which stars Henry Cavill as comicdom’s original superhero, is set to open nationwide on June 14th. The highly anticipated Man of Steel movie has a lot riding on it as Warner Bros. desperately needs a hit superhero franchise to fill in the gap until a new Batman movie can resurrect the only DC Comics superhero series that has found big screen success in the 21st Century.
