He must have REALLY liked it to not even comment on it being shot and projected digitally
"'Batgirl' would have been the heroine's first appearance on the silver screen."
We forgetting Batman and Robin? Granted her name was changed to Barbara Wilson but she was still pretty much the same character.
This almost seems like a problem that should solve itself...if Marvel keeps blacklisting VFX studios they will be putting more and more workload on an increasingly small pool, leading to more and more of them failing to meet quotas and getting blacklisted, and eventually they'll run out of studios and have no option but to rethink how they're doing this right?
Yuck. I was looking forward to seeing Avatar again on the big screen and I don't mind that Avatar 2 is gonna be HFR since it was shot that way in the first place, but the first movie being interpolated like this for its rerelease has me less interested in seeing it.
This is beyond absurd. Sony is trying to take credit for another studio's success and not even doing a very convincing job.
The box office last year belonged to Disney/Marvel as it has for the last several years. Sony's two biggest hits were based on Marvel IPs and one was co-produced with Marvel Studios. Shang-chi outgrossed Venom and Black Widow was right behind it. And arguably the ball was set rolling by WB releasing Godzilla vs Kong in spring and surprising everyone with the turnout.
If Paramount should be thanking any other studio it's Disney. But they're not, because they don't have to. They made a good movie and released it, they don't have to share credit for it.
In the US at least they used to have have really serious competition from Panavision. Try to count how many classic movies were shot on Panavision from the 60s to the 2000s.
Panavision hasn't been able to really keep up with Arri in the digital age. The Genesis pretty much got stomped out of existence as soon as the Alexa hit. The DXL2 is basically a Panavised RED and I don't hear about it much. I think I've only seen two movies shot on it.
PV glass is still popular but most people are putting it on Alexas. That IS a big change from just 20 years ago when Panavision glass meant a Panavision body 99% of the time.
