Kind of surprised that this thread hadn't been revived. Is everyone waiting for what Banno will say at G-Fest before weighing in? I'm not going to be there, so hopefully someone from this board who will be there will fill us in ASAP.
I looked up Banno on imdb, and don't see any recent producer credits. Has anyone seen any of his previous 15 IMAX efforts? How about this Robert Holden fellow? Is he based in the States, and have any of the "connected" folks that frequent this board tried contacting him?
Anyone have any opinions on what Godzilla will look like? Will they go retro with him?
BTW, I did see The Polar Express
this past winter at an IMAX in 3D. It was great! If this project comes to fruition, I can't wait to see how they utilize the format. Hopefully they'll do some stuff to give the audience the sense that they're at ground level amongst the monsters. One scene that comes to mind is the "That's my house!" moment from GxMG
. Imagine the house debris flying out of the screen in 3D (or for that matter the blown up jet crashing into the house scene in GMK
Oh, and the sound system of an IMAX theater!
I really, really hope this happens.
