3d Graphics Are Amazing In The New Spiderman Movie
Spiderman has a new movie coming out. It is basically a reboot after the third movie by Sam Raimi was poorly received. You know, the one that starred Topher Grace as Venom? They are calling this remake or reboot or whatever you want to call it, The Amazing Spiderman. One thing I must say, is that the 3d graphics they have used for this movie are indeed amazing. If you have checked out the trailer, you will see a sequence towards the end of a first person viewpoint of Spiderman himself that is very cool. I have heard many people say that this reminds them of the game Mirror’s Edge and I couldn’t agree more. If you haven’t played it I suggest you go buy it as it is probably cheap by now. The first person view has a remarkably rendered 3d architecture of a city. Not to mention Spiderman’s hands and feet running and crawling furiously up the sides of buildings and pipes. I am not sure if they are releasing this movie in 3d cinemas, but I am pretty sure it would look awsome in Real D. In any case, hats off to the 3d modelers in the effects studio responsible. They have truly done outstanding work.
Even the detail in Spiderman’s hands and feet were modeled well. Here’s a very good look at the new webshooters:
Try and find some pictures of Mirrors’ Edge on the internet and you may find something very similar to this:
Last, but definitely not least I’m going to comment on Spiderman’s new suit. The old spiderman suit was obviously a cloth material and this one is more of a rubbery latex type material. I think this may be a production design strategy as it is easier to make things look rubbery with CGI. It also is probably less CPU intensive than to mimic the flow of natural cloth in the rendering process. Anyone notice that Superman’s new suit is similar?
Maybe that’s the reason for all these rubber outfits in superhero movies lately. Atleast they didn’t go full on cgi as they did with the Green Lantern. Regardless, this new Spiderman movie looks to be cgi intensive, but for the good.
