[...] The film had action, adventure, romance, comedy, cool special effects, a unique look, and a classic serial feel like Flash Gordon, Buck Rogers, and others. It had everything I enjoy in a movie and it was right up my alley. If you liked The Rocketeer, Iron Giant, or "Star Wars," you'll like "Sky Captain". [...]
Going into this film, I had several worries. The first was that it would be all effects and no story. Fortunately, that wasn't the case at all. The characters in the film are well written. They have some great dialogue and the romance / bickering between Polly and Joe (Sky Captain) is reminiscent of that between Charlie and Rose in The African Queen or Han and Leia in "The Empire Strikes Back". The chemistry between Jude Law and Gwenyth Paltrow takes a little while to develop, but when it works it works well. The story also takes a little while to develop, but once you figure out the rules of this new universe and get into it, it ends up being a fun adventure. The supporting characters are also great. Dex is kind of like Q from the Bond movies while Bai Ling as The Mysterious Woman is this film's Darth Maul. Angelina Jolie is also a female version of Nick Fury as Captain Franky Cook.
My other worry was that I wouldn't like the retro look of the film. All of the shots are a bit fuzzy and sepia toned. It seemed OK in small doses, but I was worried that it would be a bit much to take for 2 hours. In the end, I think the fuzzy look added to the serial feel of the movie and it also helped make the effects look less fake. The sepia tone also helped cover up the blue haze that you often get in a blue screen movie. And while nothing groundbreaking was done with the effects, the unique imagery makes it impressive. The robots, vehicles, and cool environments are all fantastic. The sound effects also really helped the visual effects. Every time a robot would stomp, my seat would rattle and I could feel it in my stomach. Everyone in the audience loved it. [...]

[...] This is the kind of movie that you enjoy the more movies you've seen, if not for it's freshness and ambition than for it's geeky references. It's also the kind of movie to build a franchise on. After last night, I'm ready to see SKY CAPTAIN VS THE MARTIANS or SKY CAPTAIN AT THE CENTER OF THE EARTH. Hopefully, the Paramount marketing department will put some effort into promoting this, since the film is far more deserving than say their STAR TREK or MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE franchises. Moreover, the movie realizes what Roger Ebert once observed in his review of THE ROCKETEER--that great pulp movies, like say RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, use their origins as inspiration, rather than model. Compare RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK to TOMB RAIDER, or THE ROCKETEER to STAR WARS, and you'll get the point. SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW is of the latter variety--a movie that knows its goofy origins just enough to give them edge.& nbsp;Without a doubt, this is one of the best movies of the summer, and one of the most interesting movies of the year.
3 1/2 Stars out of Four.
Bei AICN gibt es gemischte Kritiken zu einer Testvorführung...
[...] the visuals were more than stunning. I think this is the first time I've seen cgi used for more than bigger booms or impossible monsters. That's all there too, but the digital environments, kick ass planes, giant robots, and sweeping vistas are only the obvious story. The call to Sky Captain that comes early on, where the camera sweeps up a radio tower that somehow impossibly dominates the northern hemisphere, or seeing a sea chart compass stretch for a mile or more under a vast sea is more in line with what makes the use of cgi in this film so interesting a departure. It evokes an era, a spirit, a whole world. Lucas has been trying to capture fantasy worlds with cgi in the latest Star Wars flicks, and he succeeds in realizing them, but Sky Captain and it's little flourishes made me feel a world that never was more than anything I have seen try to with cgi.
I've got to get into another screening. I really need to digest this film more. The subtle references (Wizard of Oz, King Kong, the 1138 address, the Lost World, and probably a few thousand more I didn't get) alone are worth trying to pick out. [...]

Bei AICN gibt es einen Bericht über die SCATWOT-Präsentation auf der WonderCon...
[...] imagine looking at a painting by one of the great comic and pulp artists of the 30's or a Fleischer Supes cartoon and seeing it happen in real life in an ass-kicking dog fight scene between an old time plane that has been tricked out with modifications and these bird-like flying wings -- THROUGH the buildings in New York.
The scene starts with Gwyneth Paltrow conning her way onto Jude Law's plane just as he's about to engage with the incoming squadron of flying wings. The chase takes them from this secret base on an island into Manhattan where Polly thinks she knows the quickest way to head off one of the flying wings, but her directions lead them into dead ends and scaffolding and basically Sky Captain has to shoot his way out of each one while staying on the tail of the flying wing they're chasing. We all went crazy when he shot this dart out of the nose of the plane to rappel himself around a corner.
Seriously, it felt like seeing the run on the Death Star for the first time. Everything we saw on screen was done in CG except the actors and it was pretty mind-blowing. I hate to bring up Episode III, but Lucas better watch his back. [...]

Paramount Pictures has moved writer/director Kerry Conran's Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow from June 25 to September 17. The move takes the special effects action-thriller, starring Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Giovanni Ribisi, away from the crowded summer. A September release also gives the studio a chance to do special events at Comic Con in San Diego, which takes place from July 22-25. [...]
Bei Trailer-News.com gibt es einen Kommentar zum kommenden Trailer...
Alex says: Unfortunately, the follow up trailer to the amazing teaser is not as good. With too much time on its hands this trailer gives too much detail about the plot and seems silly in trailer form. What this film will sell on is its look NOT its story. The trailer is more of a blockbuster style trailer like you might see for "Troy" or for "Pearl Harbor". There is discussion of the film's villain known as Totenkopf and that portion really drags down the other portions of the trailer. This movie still looks great, but this trailer may reveal some of the faults that were not present before.
Score: 15 out of 20

Bei CS! gibt es ein Interview mit Angelina Jolie...
[...] "I haven't seen the final and how it looks, but it's really Jude [Law] and Gwyneth [Paltrow's] film. I'm the shifty character that shows up towards the end, wearing black leather and an eye patch. It's great to work on, since I've known Jude for years, and it was nice to finally work with him. It is also all CGI. Sometimes, you have movies that rely on trick using CGI or special effects, and this one was based on the concept that if you have all this technology, what is the most fantastic thing we can do with it? What can we make? What can we do to really use this new way of making films, and they really did that. So that's exciting." [...]

[...] One of our last stops on the tour was a dip into an editing bay, where we were shown the (almost) final version of the first robot attack as seen on the preview reel. Suddenly, the Three-Strip Technicolor comment made sense; the colors really popped in this cut, making me excited to see what’s in store for the film’s more exotic locales. The action had also been noticeably tightened up from the earlier cut, which bodes well for the finished product.
Will SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW add up to more than the sum of its eye popping design work, or will it join the boundary pushing, but dramatically inert likes of TRON and DICK TRACY? With Avnet promising non-stop cliffhangers in the mold of the old serials, and franchise talk starting to bubble around the project, there seems to be every reason to believe that Conran and company have delivered. Still, with a hectic stretch-run staring them in the face, a second film is the last thing anyone wants to talk about.
Says Kevin Conran, "I hope *they* have fun making the sequel."

Der "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" Teaser-Trailer ist online !!!
Und bei AICN gibt es neben dem Teaser-Poster auch einen Kommentar von Harry Knowles...
[...] The trailer is essentially select images from the first 20 minutes of the film... ALTHOUGH - the few shots of Angelina Jolie... that's from about an hour and ten minutes in, and she's only in the film for about 25 minutes - (I believe, if memory serves)
The narrative arc of the film is essentially a mystery. Who is Totenkopf? What has happened to the world's most brilliant scientist? Why are fantastically advanced robots stealing massive generators and assorted technology from around the world?
After this initial attack on NY and Sky Captain's HQ, it then becomes a world wide pursuit to get to the bottom of these secrets. There is action in a vast array of locales. ALL the interaction you're seeing from the characters in this TEASER are from the initial moments. All the characters have histories with each other. Past unresolved issues. Polly Perkins is a reporter that is given the initial scoop on Totenkopf by an escaped scientist, that is attempting to stop the nefarious actions.
The whole film is aiming for a Pulp Action Adventure Science Fiction 30's aesthetic that has never been seen before in the realm of live action. It is heavily influenced by the 30's Science Fiction of Fritz Lang, Korda and Fleischer. However as the story moves on, not only does it have those influences, but also that of Buster Crabbe's FLASH GORDON and BUCK ROGERS... as well as the fantastic realms of EC's WEIRD FANTASY, WEIRD SCIENCE and more of the Alex Raymond SECRET AGENT X-9 and FLASH GORDON strips of the 30's.

SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW trailer is one of the most perfect, beautiful, holy shit cool as fuck wanna see wanna see my god, let's watch that again and again and again and again things I've ever seen. Paul Dini took me aside after it played and weeped about how desperately he wanted to see that film... right now.

[...] In all likelihood, SPIDER-MAN 2 will have its teaser ready for RETURN OF THE KING, that's what I'm hearing. I'm hearing the same thing for WORLD OF TOMORROW, which... btw is going to be called SKY CAPTAIN AND THE WORLD OF TOMORROW I here, due to the pre-approved 2nd and 3rd films which Paramount has given the thumbs up to. Looks like they want to brand the films with the name SKY CAPTAIN, much like Indiana Jones was later used in that series. [...]
[...] caught a few unfinished minutes of a movie called 'World of Tomorrow" here in New York and I thought it might interest you. I was surprised because I haven't heard much about this movie, but apparently it was shot entirely against blue screen on digital video by a first time director. It stars Jude Law, Gwenyth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, and Giovanni Ribisi.
And, even in rough form, it looks fantastic.
Like "Down With Love" was a 60s-style movie shot like a 60s movie, World looks almost exactly like a 1930s sci-fi flick. The fact that the backgrounds and other elements look hand-drawn actually adds rather than detracts from the appeal. This could be the first example of a movie in which the stiff and artificial look that the blue screen creates actually improves the overall effect. It reminded me of an Alan Moore comic come to life (Giant robots walking down the streets of Art Deco Manhattan? Awesome) [...]
Bei About.com gibt es ein Interview mit Bai Ling...
Paramount Pictures has picked up the U.S. Domestic Distribution rights to a film that I'm all sorts of gaga over. WORLD OF TOMORROW!!! The script is just amazingly geeky cool. Paramount picked it up because they didn't really have a huge film in place for next summer, since MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE 3 is taking its time, to make sure its done right. [...]

[...] Beautiful Chinese actress Bai Ling sounded like she had a lot of fun "kicking Jude Law’s ass" in the martial arts sequence of the just completed film, "World of Tomorrow."
Although she’s done martial arts in films before, she said, "This one is more stylishly done. Because I’m doing it [the martial arts], I’ll make her sexy and elegant. I’ll add that to it. Otherwise nobody can be like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee. If I’m doing it, I’ll have [to add] something else."
Ling describes her role in this futuristic action-adventure as: "I play a mysterious woman from the future. In the film, I’m kicking Jude Law’s ass all the time. It’s a science fiction and I’m doing a lot of Kung-Fu in it. It’s a very cool character, very stylish and very sexy."
The strikingly gorgeous actress looked very stylish and sexy herself at the Rob Reiner award ceremony held at the Grand Wailea Ballroom on June 12. You couldn’t help asking if she got to wear really cool outfits in the movie.
Ling, who’s comfortable about her femininity and sensuality, replied: "Yeah, you’ll see. I have on black leather. I have a chic futuristic look and red, red lipstick. I wear very stylish make-up. It’s special." [...]
[24.05.2003] Harry Knowles von AICN überschlägt sich vor Begeisterung wegen des Drehbuchs... Vorsicht SPOILER !!!
[...] Every 15 pages or so, the film has a cliffhanger, then picks up with a title card and shows you how they survived... or didn’t. I’m giddy about this flick. With Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie (as the one-eyed Captain Francesca Cook - essentially a female Han Solo type), Casey Affleck (as Dex the Sky Captain's all purpose scientific mastermind & buddy, that gets his ideas out of comics and pulps!) and the absolutely jaw-droppingly gorgeous Ling Bai as "the mysterious woman"... well, it’s got a great little cast - with many other parts still unknown. The great thing about it all is how effortlessly lived in the script feels. I mean, all these characters seem to have histories that we just pick up in the middle of, much like... oh, say Indy and Sallah’s relationship in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK. The film is alive with potential. Literally if nailed, it has the ambition to be a geek favorite for all time. As a failure, it’d be a glorious and tragic mistake that... "coulda been a contender..."
[10.05.2003] Die LA Times hat einen lesenswerten "Hintergrund"-Bericht veröffentlicht...
[24.03.2003] CS! meldet...
Casey Affleck has joined the cast of The World of Tomorrow, the independently financed sci-fi thriller that stars Jude Law, Gwyneth Paltrow and Angelina Jolie.
Variety reports that the effects-heavy film revolves around a reporter (Paltrow) and pilot (Law) who go on an adventure just before the start of WWII. Affleck will play Dex, a tech genius and right hand man to Law's aviator hero. Giovanni Ribisi had been in negotiations for the role. [...]

Jude Law and Gwyneth Paltrow will topline the big-budget science fiction thriller The World of Tomorrow from first-time writer-director Kerry Conran, says The Hollywood Reporter. The film aims to go into production in late February in London.
Jon Avnet and Marsha Oglesby, who developed the project, are producing through their Brooklyn Films along with Law and his wife, Sadie Frost.
The project is described by the producers as "retro sci-fi" in the vein of Raiders of the Lost Ark. Set at the turn of the 20th century, it follows a reporter (Paltrow) and pilot (Law) who team up on an adventure.
