    Just out of curiosity, would anyone happen to know what format they shot the film on (film or digital) and what camera?

    The Arri Alexa seems to be the go-to digital camera for a lot of projects recently.

    Looking at the trailer for Iron Man 3, you'd swear this film was shot on film. John Toll did a beautiful job with using the Arri Alexa.

    I wouldn't say that. There are some clear shots that look off and the entire tone doesn't look like film. But overall it looks pretty good.

    I was kind of thinking that he used the Alexa in the first place because it's become the industry standard since it's release but I didn't want completely exclude film because there are still films being shot on the Arricam and Panavision Panaflex cameras
