“Kind of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, which is why I was so adamant in making it the best that we could,” Frasher said. "Super proud of it."
Seems was not just the logo:Saw it this afternoon and enjoyed it. Next up, IMAX with the guys only. The movie theatre we saw it in was LOUD. Ears still ringing but did not notice this while the movie was running. Yep, could feel it - also Jurassic Park in the adjacent movie theatre!!
Darkstar is too small - should be double that size at the very least. Like the shape though and the Skunkworks logo was a nice touch.
Impressed with the CGI of the Su-57s and the Tomcat flying. FYI - the Tomcat was from the San Diego Air & Space Museum collection - they got credit there in the end and a "free" paint job for it. "Different than the you know what country was the bad guy" paint scheme in the movie.
Enjoy the Day! Mark
The footage from a hand-held camera inside the cockpit of an Embracer Phenom 300E light jet showcases a pilot’s view of how the scenes of aircraft approaching and buzzing over the aircraft carrier might have been captured for the movie.
Yeah the mission should have been done with TLAMs, they can do it in terrain following mode without GPS, but then we wouldn't have had a great movie.I must say I was misty eyed at seeing the F-14 take wing…but still muttered “this mission demands a rod from god….no wings needed.
