DC Movies- if at first you don't succeed...

Recommended Posts

Not sure how a horror movie involving thousands of CGI characters from a totally CGI environment would be 'cheap to produce'.  Heck, the cost of Alien Covenant was like $100 mil.

 

Anyway, as Bazza illustrated, I was referring to the ideas/direction of the WB execs in picking this movie.  IMO they're obviously backsliding in a major way.

Mostly because animators, lighters, and compositors (especially those that work in India and China) are much cheaper than live-action film crews, actors, stuntmen and extras. Plus, greenscreen shooting is much cheaper than location shooting, and even cheaper than soundstage shooting with physical sets. And a lot will be saved by not needing any A-list actors (or what passes for A-list in the DCEU).

Most of the time, you don't actually SEE the bad guy in horror films.  Alien is almost over by the time you get a real, full-body shot of the xenomorph.  That's partly due to budget, and partly due to the fact that its more effective and scary to not quite understand what you're up against.

And partly because the suit the actor playing the Alien wore didn't stand up to prolonged inspection in good light.
