"Shoot into the shadows" is called up-stage lighting.
Your last paragraph confused me slightly, are you saying that Halloween and Friday the 13th aren't substantial, successful, groundbreaking horror films...?
Being inspired by a style of shooting is one thing, but emulating surely can only lead to complete unoriginality? Be inspired, learn and create a unique shooting style of your own, is the message?
Any one have ideas of where in the UK it'll be screening? I presume the Leicester Sq Odeon?
When I watch a trailer (or any video for that matter) on my phone, I automatically turn my phone landscape so the 16:9 fills out the entire phone. The Baby Driver 9:16 trailer only works if you keep your phone vertical, which I thought wasn't the way most people watch 'quality' videos such as trailers on their phones. Am I wrong?
'...the only film to ever feature Robert De Niro and Al Pacino on screen together...'
Weren't Robert De Niro and Al Pacino together in Righteous Kill?
