Here is a recap from The Cynic:

  • Newsstand issues now have the movies covered listed on the cover... Subscribers will get a text-free cover... all issues have the show titles on the spine, but now the 5 films covered in this issue are on the cover, with 3 titles above S-Man's right arm and 2 titles below... There is an explanation on why the newsstand issues will now come with its contents on the cover as well as the spine... Something to do with retail marketing....
  • DA VINCI-Ahem is correct. They shot at Lincoln Cathedral. Rainmaker did the Saint-Sulpice Paris church.
  • XMEN3- Article doesn't mention anything about Weta coming on late..They did the final battle and Iceman transformation. 178 total shots...
  • SUPERMAN model work~Haven't read the article yet, but the "stats" page lists New Deal with Matthew Gratzner supervising... They are listed as doing "Metropolis disaster- tunnel fire miniature construction and photography". Neil Corbould was Special Effects Supervisor for the floor effects...
  • POSEIDON~ ILM did 96 shots, with the opening CG shot covering 4329 frames.. There is a nice 2 page spread showing only photos from the shot....
  • I'm just now starting to read the S-MAN article...Just finished the one on X3....I didn't know New Deal had a digital department!.(they did the miniature house when Phoenix is going nuts and some composites/effects)... Anyway, Mark Stetson was fx supervisor on SR 'cuz he and director Bryan Singer were developing a remake of LOGAN'S RUN when the chance to make SR came up... So there you go...
  • Interestingly, Framestore CFC did the most shots on the film (301). SPI did 286, with most of the flying and completely CG S-Man shots as well as the space shuttle sequence... Framestore did the shots of S-boy underwater (ala underwater Harry Potter shots) and The Orphanage did the shots of S-Man falling from space. I do know that R & H used the old Forrest Gump effect to animate old footage of Marlon Brando as S-Man's father and use it in scenes in Superduperman's fortress of whatever it is called..

Thanks to The Cynic again for the heads up.
