Civil War: Trailer 2, The Best Shots (imo)

Civil War

Civil War

Know idea why Marvel doesn’t do at least SOME color correction etc so I did some for my favorite shots from the new trailer. Which are basically the storyboard.


Poor Winter Soldier, Awesome shot of Cap and shield. Tony, his sad moment realizing he and Cap are enemies. OMG it’s T’Challa which sounds French toasty. Scarlet Bitch wailing on Vision. I guess we now know who in addition to Agent Carter is killed. The moment Tony decides he has to rip Cap in half. No battle screws with her hair. Vision goes down. Obligatory Hawkeye who should be home . No idea who this is. Iron Man about to blast Cap. Cap looking rougher than we’ve ever seen him. Team Cap, in the next frame Wanda starts to fly so that’s interesting. Team Tony.  IS THAT WEBBING? IS THAT? Webbing is confounding even for Cap. Classic shot. There he is, mashed with Cap.

The art generated by doing science is particularly beautiful. Especially from centuries past.

Scott Kelly & NASA: Abstract Artists

NASA got Scott Kelly to the International Space Station where he made amazing art. He also spent a year there, and he got back safely.  A historic achievement. Non fiction science fiction. We were obsessed with the smallness of the 2016 presidential campaign so it wasn’t particularly talked about.

Kelly always points out that the accomplishment is not his alone, that the NASA community deserves equal credit.  Still, he was the one floating in space for a year.

While floating in space he created a series of abstracts, Passing Over the Land Down Under. They’re shots of Australia.

I think they’re among the great artworks this century.

Astronaut Scott Kelly took these photos of Australia from the International Space Station and posted them to Twitter.
