John Carter‘s here and it’s almost gone but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a fine, fine film with lots of great things to love.
Somewhere down that list of great things are the special effects, provided by a number of companies around the world. One of these, London’s Cinesite, have posted this reel of their contributions.
Lots of flying machines, some glass structures and the “info-floor”, all of which were handled deftly, I think.
That reel would have been a mighty specific trailer for the film, but I know there are audiences out there that would have responded to it. Unlike, I suppose, some of Disney’s earlier efforts.
Go see John Carter now on the big screen, while you have the chance.
