Batman v. Superman Took Some Serious Work.


batman_1

Say what you will about Batman v Superman (and let’s face it, there’s a lot that can be said), but the visuals were amazing. Some were better than others obviously because Doomsday certainly didn’t look that great, but this new VFX reel from Scanline VFX puts the spotlight on how they enhanced this world and created many of the locations most of us probably just assumed were actual places and sets.  The visuals in Snyder’s movies are always pretty distinctive, but this video really emphasises just how different he made our world look to help create the DC Films Universe. Of course, the huge amount of special effects shots no doubt played a big role in why Batman v Superman’s budget was so massive, something which has resulted in its impressive box office haul being considered “disappointing.”  Anyway, watch the VFX reel below and then let us know your thoughts in the comments section.

Toasted Pets?

Every once in a  while, you see promotional artwork that catches your eye, but the item or object the promotion is for escapes you.  Brosmind out of Barcelona, Spain, have designed the “Toasted Pets” series.  “The cutest way to keep your favorite things” is the tagline, but I’m still not exactly sure what they are.  Upon discovering the promotional video below, I was even more perplexed as to why a Spanish company would create their ad in broken English using a think Japanese accent, but HEY, normal is boring.  Made in aluminum, leather, wood and plastic, the first exclusive edition of 50 copies. Price: €130. Worldwide shipping. Click right here for availability.

The T-Block Watch.

T – Block re-defines time through an original quality timepiece and has a very futuristic look.  It boasts a robust design that’s unlike any other watch you’ve seen. Clear, LEDs are embedded in a tough polyurethane case and seamless matching strap. When the watch is in sleep mode, the LEDS are dim, but if you want to know the time or date, just hit one of the buttons and the  lights appear, revealing the time and day.
