    Woah, haha, that would suck. Sometimes in a weird way, I wish it was 2007 it was coming out, just because I do enjoy all this anticipation, and when the movie comes out all that will be gone. But there probably will be a sequel to look forward to.

    This is old stuff, but now that there's a misc section I think this info is now thread worthy. :)

    http://www.vfxworld.com/?atype=articles&id=2771You'll need a username and password to read it, but I posted all that was said about SR.

    The Prevalence of Previs
    Andrew Jones, cto for Pixel Liberation Front (Superman Returns), says, “We are doing a lot more work to visualize the look and feel of the projects we are working on. When people watch our more recent previs, they typically have a much more emotional response than they did in the past. In the technical arena, there have also been several leaps forward recently toward using the tools from previs to enhance the actual shooting. For example, on motion-capture sets, it is now possible to look at a live retargeted CG character being driven by an actor on the stage. As that sort of technology takes hold, previs is becoming an even more important tool for preparing the digital assets and sets that will be needed later in the process of making a film.”

    It's like Christmas morning, you open everything and then you get depressed 'cause all the fun is over, all the anticipation. But yeah you've gotta' look forward to the sequel.:)

    The more I get into this the more I wish it had no connection to the previous movies, no offense to the fans of those, and I'm not bashing them but in my opinion even the first two were not good.

    The storie were just icky. I can't stand that voice over crap when Lois is flying with Supes in the first, and the world turning thin at the end which made no sense, and in 2 the kiss thing etc.

    I just wish this was a fresh start.

    I'd love to get a preview a day before. I just watched the Benchwarmers last night at a local theatre and I think it's officially released today. Got free tickets to see it from a radio promotion. I was thinking the whole time that they should do something similar with Returns, that'd be awesome!:up:

    How was the Benchwarmers? It looks good. I'm happy to see Spade and Rob together again in a movie. Reminds me of the good ole' SNL days.

    Well, its hard to say. Rob Schneider didn't really do anything funny at all in this one. Maybe a few parts, but he was the serious, non-loser of the group. Everyone looked up to him. There were some instances that got a pretty good laught. John Lovits saying he sat down to pee when he was a kid was nice. There are a few surprises in there for some people that liked a certain 80s show with a car and a certain 60's show with a car, but I wont give away much more than that ;) I'd give it about 3.5 out of 5 or something like that. Its a decent film with a few good laughs, but I'm a big fan of Anchorman, and since that movie, I've yet to find a comedy I laughed that much when I watched it.

    I saw that about Tennesee, we don't get anything like that here in the Boston area. It's scary. I don't know if anything happened in the Carolina's, I called Metropolisman earlier tonight, he didn't mention anything.

    Good to hear everything is cool there. They're on their way here actually. We have a tornado watch until 6 am. Check this out:

    :eek::eek: Pretty scary. If Metropolis Man and myself do not post anymore, you know why :) I'm a little creeped out tonight and I need to humor myself.

    We had some small damage in my area...some parts of Ky were hit worse than around me....but they got hit bad in Tenn....about 12 people killed so far. We were watching all the weather stuff while it was going on around us...but I haven't looked at it for a little while now.

    I hope everyone here is safe tonight.
