Featuring state-of-the-art special effects never seen before, "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" represents a trailblazing moment in cinematic history. With more than 2000 effects shots, this unprecedented feature uses live action filmed against blue screen and fills in every frame detail digitally, after the completion of principal photography. More than six years in the making, this groundbreaking achievement in film is the brainchild of first-time writer/director Kerry Conran, in collaboration with producer Jon Avnet. As Conran says: “This film exists because of Jon Avnet’s maverick spirit, his belief in me and his love for this project.”

Threats

Although "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" has virtually no sets and no locations, Conran uses the latest in digital technology to immerse audiences in a breathtakingly detailed and lush, long-lost sci-fi world, where pulp fiction fantasies come to life. Flying high above New York City, the film opens with the Hindenburg III, a behemoth airship, docking atop the Empire State Building, the world's tallest port-of-call. Storm clouds rumble as snow blankets the city and startling news fills the screen: Famous scientists around the world are mysteriously disappearing. When deadly gargantuan robots trample the city streets, flinging cars and crushing buildings in their wake, on the investigation is Chronicle reporter Polly Perkins (Gwyneth Paltrow), who enlists the help of her old flame, Captain H. Joseph Sullivan (Jude Law) -- aka Sky Captain -- an ace aviator with daredevil flying skills.

Traveling to the Himalayan Alps, where they're trapped in an enormous ice cave wired with explosives, and to the tranquil valley of Shangri-la, Polly and Sky Captain battle terrifying flying robots, make an incredible mid-air landing on a mobile airstrip thousands of feet in the sky, and experience the wonder of underwater flight as they search for Dr. Totenkopf, the evil mastermind behind a plot to destroy the world. Will these two determined souls find the elusive Totenkopf in time? With the help of the courageous captain of an all-female amphibious squadron, Franky Cook (Angelina Jolie), and technical genius Dex (Giovanni Ribisi), Polly Perkins and Sky Captain may be our planet's only hope.
