Inhumans teaser

The Inhumans are an odd bunch. While making my way over to Honolulu, Hawaii to visit the set of the latest Marvel show along with other bloggers and reporters, I enjoyed the oddities of Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee‘s take on Marvel’s Royal family midair. Perhaps it wouldn’t translate to the most accessible or financially responsible series, but the comics (and the family contained within) went to some fantastical, out-of-this-world territory. The ABC series is still set out of this world, at least partially, but is looking to ground the genetically super-powered characters. But they’re initially going big, though, by shooting the first two episodes on IMAX cameras.

Below, check out our Inhumans set visit report.

3D movies are a source of controversy. They require clunky glasses that darken the screen, give you vertigo, and make you look like a dork.

dunkirk in imax

Christopher Nolan has had a long-standing love affair with IMAX, using the grandiose cinematic format in many of his films — but he promises that Dunkirk will push the boundaries of the technology beyond anything you’ve ever seen.

It’s going to “give the audience the most visceral experiential two hours that they can hope for,” Nolan said of his World War II epic, which is based on the true story of the thousands of Allied soldiers who were trapped and surrounded by the German army on the beach of Dunkirk.
