This is what I wish they'd do with Indy V.

 

I would actually prefer it, now that you mentioned it

I wouldnt!

 

Perhaps gamers like Lee could get past the Uncanny Valley. I know I could not.

Did Tintin look like Harrison Ford?

 

That was a cartoon.

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

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.

Naturalistic movement and performance capture.

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.

I thought you meant photo-realistic CGI.

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

But Gollum is a different case to the one I'm talking about. It's actually rather close to animation from scratch from a model. They didn't work Avatar style back then.

Well Steef, I'd also be happy to see them using the de-ageing technique on Ford too, were it on the cards. I was blown away by it in Ant Man.

It was very good in Ant-Man. Probably too cost prohibitive for a full 2 hour movie though.

Nor do I. but it would have to be perfect, every single shot throughout the whole film. Not like Tarkin in Rogue One.

Tarkin looks shit. They just about got away with it on a secondary character, but there's no way that work could be passed off on a big lead.

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
