Trailer looks fantastic, I can't wait.

this looks like a big budget ABC afterschool special.

LOL, true. The first film was okay, but no great shakes. I like the fact these films are centered around a small group of friends. I've given up complaining about awful CGI. It's a given. It's kinda weird because CGI in animated films continue to improve and break new grounds. Just look at the advancements in character animation in the Dragon films? But CGI in live action films looks more cartoonish.


I think that really depends on film and the standards set by the studio and the director. For example, the effects in Star Wars The Force Awakens and the first two Bad Robot Trek films are startlingly good. They created real worlds and seamlessly blended practical sets and environs with computer generated elements. I love those films on a visual level a great deal.

The only Spider-Man films to truly convince me a guy was actually thwipping around the city were the two Marc Webb films. They got his mass exactly right.

Oh, come on, you cannot give up. Seriously, the CGI work 15 years ago looks better than this stuff in this trailer. I guess it continues to being down scaled and funded to little overseas software sweatshops, this stuff looks barely better than television visual effects, and a lot of shows on cable look as good or better than this. And you are right, the top scale CGI in animation is worlds beyond most live action films now.

Scott, you are right on this, the Star Wars pictures recently were quite good, but that was largely because Disney pretty much let them spend almost as much as they wanted on the visual effects, and at least Force Awakens was either all, or almost 100% ILM work, top notch, and a lot of it physical models and props.

I don't disagree with any of that.

Depends. Rogue One CGI was very cartoonish. A lot of the stuff in The Last Jedi was terrible. Namely the whole climax of the film.

Man, I have to keep fixing these things for you, Solium. No problem, though, happy to do it!

Really enjoying everyone's enthusiasm for this movie. embarrassment

Regardless I'm still very much looking forward to Spider-Man: Far From Home. Also Spider-Man Homecoming was very good, imo. Excited to hear what Giacchino comes up with for Mysterio and the movie's European setting. This is easily one of my most anticipated scores of the year. In fact, I'm more hyped for this score than for Silvestri's Avengers: Endgame.

The film's opening is Tuesday June 2nd in the US, hopefully we get some news about the soundtrack album soon!

I know the physical CD is intended to drop on Friday July 5th, but perhaps it'll get a digital release on Friday June 28th?

This is easily the score I'm most looking forward to this year after only Rise of Skywalker, up there with Hollow Knight Silksong and Celeste Chapter 9.

The Amazon entry also indicates a June 28th CD release!

What an ugly cover!
It is the movie poster...if they used photoshopped floating heads someone would complain about that. No pleasing people.
