Trailer #2: "Heroes"

This is looking very good.

What I'm liking with these trailers so far is none of the footage has a post look to it. I can't tell. I can assume things but that's just guesswork.

I'm thinking if there is anything that could betray a vfx-ey looking shot in this film it might come down to some wanky digital camera work. But haven't seen that so far. Looks good.

"From the director of Lone Survivor...and also Hancock and Battleship, but we won't mention those". :lol:

But seriously, looks better and better with each trailer.

I agree with you, Shane. It all looks great, but if anything is going to jump out as being HEY GUISE IT'S-A ME, CGI!, it might be something like all-digital camera moves of the inner-workings of pipes/machines (looks like a few glimpses in that trailer) or some big CG flyovers of the burning oil platform.

FxGuide's coverage of Deepwater Horizon here via podcast interview by Mike talking to ILM's Craig Hammack:

and ArtofVfx interviews Craig about the film:

ILM also updated their credits for the film:

Scott Farrar was the 2nd unit vfx supervisor, Hammack ILM's vfx supervisor and London's portion of vfx supervised by Mohen Leo and John Galloway(both of whom were working on Rogue One as well so I don't know how they juggled that!).

Welp, I'll gladly admit I was wrong. :lol: I really liked the movie and I don't recall a single moment where something jumped out at me as being overtly CG. Stunning work that I couldn't tell where it began and where the live-action plates ended. So kudos to the VFX team and their well-deserved Oscar nomination. :thumbup:
