More people should talk about this movie. Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow is a great example of retro science fiction, a homage to the 1940s period of science fiction and a good story besides. I wish the colors were better or just embrace the black and white, but nothing’s perfect. The movie did introduce new forms of digital effects work but sadly doesn’t get the same treatment as The Matrix in this period. Sadly the movie was buried in competition at the theaters but you really should check it out.
And then check out the new art book coming from Dynamite. It promises to go over the history and influences of the movie and the effects created for the movie that are still used in today’s films.
