What I hope the CGI sequences will be like:

What I fear they will be like: 
Image result for mutt swinging vines

 

Hasn't the trailer already made clear which of those two this will look like?

Those are only a few examples.

 

Thousands and thousands of older films which cost nothing to produce still look better than millions-worth blockbusters being made these days. It's sad, really, to see so much money poured into projects for such a lame result.

The Jurassic Park one still looks great because the CG effect was composited onto a real set. Filmmakers today, including Spielberg, seem to think CGI is just as convincing, if not more, when it's contained in a green screen studio. The problem is the actors, whom aren't CGI.

Obviously the living actors need to be replaced by digital versions who can more realistically interact and blend in with the CGI background.

I don't fully understand the use of mocap if it's all animated.

 

With something like Davy Jones for example you need someone for the other actors to act against and who can interact with the environment (and still a lot of the character is animated from scratch anyway), as well as someone as a reference for the animators, but in a movie like Tintin or those Zemeckis movies it feels a bit weird.

 

I suspect Spielberg not being an animator might be part of it, but I dunno

The book is CGI catastrophe.

 

I've read now some parts of it and it's kind of horrible.

Not really. Gollum wouldn't have been anywhere near as successful without Serkis' performance. 

 

Within a fully CG cartoon animation? The actor's performance is arguably superior to animated performance work. It's a whole new level of expressive sophistication.

What do you think I meant with Indy V then? I'd happily see it as an animated mocap film like Tintin.

 

I thought you meant photo-realistic CGI.

Agreed excellent merger between an actual actors performance and digital animation.

Just watched the Comic Con trailer.  Looks okay, although with its use of Tom Sawyer, and the display of 80s pop imagery in a future setting, it looks like fan service stew.  MUST WATCH.

After seeing the trailer I am VERY dissapointed  that Williams chose another  boring historical drama over this

 

The movie looks cool from the trailer
