    Anyone seen these before? Or am I just bringing up some ol'sh¡t?

    IMO these images just set a slightly darker tone. How I wish this movie could have had some of this darker tone. Oh well.

    Just throwing these out there. I've never seen these before. I think they're all spectacular, well except for the truck/prison one. :up: for the rest of'em. Anyone else??

    We've seen them before, but no problem in seeing them again.

    I like them very much - the colours, mood and tone. But I think the 'Hitler rally' type imagery for Magneto was perhaps a little extreme. And concept art almost always looks better than anything real.

    I'd have no problem with the movie being a lot darker and moodier...I thought the use of light, darkness and shadow was not atmospheric enough in many places in X3.... Ratner went for vivid visuals rather than mood. And having seen how many scenes in Superman Returns were digitally treated to get the right 'lighting' (there was a thread in that forum showing the amount of digital work just on an exterior of the farmhouse), I'd imagine it's very expensive and time-consuming to alter the look of everything in that way.

    I hadn't seen those before. Thanks for sharing. I really like the last one, dunno why.

    Pretty cool, but it reminds me more of star wars

    Lots of production art is available on illustrator Daren R. Dochterman's official site.

    Nice one xii22_loop.:cyclops:
    Thanks!
    SF wasn't a problem with me really. Better than setting it in New York or LA - cities that have been attacked for countless times on film.:o

    Is the X3 script (pre Ratner) online? I'm very interested to see it.

    Save for the brief script review on AICN, I haven't seen it released.

    the style of that "shot" is really good, the tone, the colours.... is more artistic than what we got.

    I think the scene would have been better at night, don't you think? or in the evenning.
