Journey to Space IMAX

3-D IMAX goes back to outer space for a repeat of some space shuttle material and an extended CGI look at how a Martian landing might be accomplished. It's a grab bag of film sources, and only partly in original 3-D material. Shout! presents it in both 4K Ultra-hd and Blu-ray 3-D, but so far the 4K disc format hasn't a 3-D option.

Awards Season Continues With Visual Effects, Sound Mixing And Makeup Nominations

Today was a busy day for some of the smaller guilds with the Visual Effects Society, the Cinema Audio Society, and the Makeup and Hairstylists Guilds all announcing their nominations for 2013.

This is perhaps the easiest category to call in the entirety of awards season, and I don’t mean just here, but for the Oscar as well (Last year’s winner, Life of Pi, easily took this category before going on to claim the Oscar).

‘Gravity’ Tops Visual Effects Society Nominations

‘Gravity’ Tops Visual Effects Society Nominations
The Visual Effects Society has announced this year’s nominees for the 12th annual VES awards.

As previously announced, the Visionary Award will be presented to Alfonso Cuarón for “Gravity,” which led all films with eight vfx nominations. “Pacific Rim” received six, while “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” and Iron Man 3” received five each.

Those pics were nominated in the “Outstanding Visual Effects in a Visual Effects-Driven Feature” category. In a surprise, “The Lone Ranger” was nominated in feature supporting vfx. Disney’s disastrous Western was quite f/x-driven, though many of its effects were in-camera practical f/x, which aren’t a major focus for the Ves. Other supporting effects nominees include ”Rush,” “The Great Gatsby,” The Secret Life of Walter Mitty,” “The Wolf of Wall Street” and “White House Down.”

Nobable omissions from the top category include “Man of Steel” (which got 2 nominations), “The Wolverine,
