http://movietrailers.apple.com/movies/sony_pictures/passengers/passengers-trailer-1_h1080p.mov Trailer came out today, releases same day as Rogue One. Sci-fi pic about a man & a woman waking up 90 years too early on a spaceship, and everything that ensues. Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game) is directing and the Black List script has been around since 2007, written by Jon Spaihts (early drafts of Prometheus, Doctor Strange), Keanu Reeves was attached for a while, so were Emily Blunt, Rachel McAdams, etc. Rodrigo Prieto shot this on Alexa 65 & Primo 70 (at least, that's what IMDB says, the Alexa 65 stuff is 100 % true though). This is definitely, along with Live By Night, some of the best Alexa 65 footage I've seen, Prieto is a great great DP, looks cool. On an unrelated subject, I was wondering. At about 10K a day for Alexa 65 + optics + Codex Vault 65 rental, how do these big productions (like Assassin's Creed, Live By Night, etc) justify shooting on Alexa 65? It'd be much cheaper to shoot on film, hell, maybe 65mm would be cheaper than Alexa 65, I don't really get it, not to mention the insane logistics that must be involved in processing the footage, and that kind of data. Maybe the 6K rez is great for the VFX people, but it's not like anamorphic 35mm is that far off.
