Are you ready for this? The world premiere of Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse was nothing short of fire at the Regency Village Theatre this past weekend. Celebrities came from near and far to mingle and take in the film that is on the cutting edge of something new.
Angel Parker and the family were four of many in attendance at the Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse premiere. The celebrity mom smiled while surrounded by her husband, Eric Nenninger, and kids, Naomi and James. Caron Butler and his family (pictured above) were also present for all of the on-screen action at the screening. He and his party of five were joined by Garcelle Beauvais and her sons Jaid and Jax.
Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is definitely one of those movies outside of this sphere of filmmaking. Not only does the motion picture show the effects of modern-day technology, but Into The Spider-Verse also presents a plot twist in which there is a whole universe of spidermen and spider-women. Imagine that possibility!
Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, and Rodney Rothman recently spoke with Slash Film to explain how they made Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse look so appealing.
“At its core, we took the idea of traditional hand-drawn animation and the rules of that, and then took CG animation and blended them together. That’s the super simple version of it,” Persichetti said. “A little deeper in the weeds is that we had these characters modeled based off of drawings, and then once we did that, we realized some of the really expressive parts of the designs were actually the line work. We went in and figured out a way to draw line work on top of these characters three-dimensionally, and then that line work could accept light if it needed to, or not.”
There was also a bit of playing with the frames so that the movement appeared more authentic. You can see how the directors work to create perfection onscreen when Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse comes to theaters on December 14, 2018. Check out the film’s trailer below!
