In some places in the world (including one of my local theaters… YAY!) G.I. Joe: Retaliation is actually debuting tonight. But still rolling with the official release date, Twitziller posts the latest update today, focusing on filming techniques.
Considering so many of the trailers and TV spots include shots in the dead of night with explosions and gunfire, it’s pretty evident that lighting is going to play a large role in the way G.I. Joe: Retaliation effectively portrays battle. In fact, even as we see Firefly rolling up on his motorcycle and unleashing his robotic explosive drones the importance of lighting cannot be understated.
It’s always a challenge to show a dark environment, yet allow enough vision so the viewer knows what they’re seeing. From all appearances, G.I. Joe: Retaliation has accomplished this.
