it doesn't give me much to anticipate. i'm not dying to see what the dragon looks like. i'm dying to see the dragon sneeze, hairball, and/or roll on the ground. the kid is a mystery to me. it's got adults dropping e bombs, and that gets me worried.

because i'm easy but i'm sassy too. this is destined to be my favorite 2016 multiplex movie. for me the real kickers arrive in the helicoptering, tracking shots across treetops, and the general composition of the sequence with the kids turning around in the bus, then the kid turning around while on top of the bus, and:

"I must whisper it to you—not because Im ashamed but because it is so Dear to me that I must keep it close to me by whispering—"

Looks great. I keep wondering how the Ghostboy vibe fits into the Disney machine but this looks like the perfect synthesis. Would love to know the BTS on the WTWTA nod on the poster.
Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

Bizarrely, it never came up. When I first saw the poster I quietly sent an e-mail with the WTWTA dvd art in response but it was never acknowledged. The only concern was trying to not make it feel like Jungle Book or Good Dinosaur. I guess creatures peeking out from behind things are just embedded in the lexicon of poster designs. All in all, I'm really happy with the poster.

I was wondering how much Disney was worried about that as far as the marketing goes. It is a bit of a boom time for feral children and their large animal friends.

synopsis:

Quote
For years, old wood carver Mr. Meacham (Robert Redford) has delighted local children with his tales of a fierce dragon that resides deep in the woods of the Pacific Northwest. To his daughter, Grace (Bryce Dallas Howard) who works as a forest ranger, those stories are little more than tall tales until she meets Pete (Oakes Fegley), a 10-year-old with no family and no home who claims to live in the woods with a giant green dragon named Elliot. From Pete's descriptions, Elliot seems remarkably similar to the dragon from her father's stories. With the help of Natalie (Oona Laurence), an 11-year-old girl whose father Jack (Wes Bentley) owns the local lumber mill, Grace sets out to determine where Pete came from, where he belongs, and the truth about this dragon.

^this is a favorite credit of mine because it could very well be, based on looking at imdb credits, that Lowery and Healy met on the set of Joe Swanberg's Alexander the Last, for which Lowery was a writer, an additional editor, sound recordist, Ry Russo-Young was wardrobe ffs, these were the wild west days of upcoming independent filmmakers, and Lowery was right in the center and indeed you can see Ghostboy on stage at a point in the movie. textures. i like those things. this job is bringing some textures, and other credits include The House of the Devil, Detachment, Ain't Them Bodies Saints, James White.
