Famous scientists around the world have mysteriously disappeared and Chronicle reporter Polly Perkins (Gwyneth Paltrow) along with ace aviator Sky Captain (Jude Law) are on the investigation. Risking their lives as they travel to exotic places around world, can the fearless duo stop Dr. Totenkopf, the evil mastermind behind a plot to destroy the earth? Aided by Franky Cook (Angelina Jolie), commander of an all-female amphibious squadron, and technical genius Dex (Giovanni Ribisi), Polly and Sky Captain may be our planet’s only hope.
Featuring state-of-the-art special effects never seen before, “Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow” truly represents a trailblazing moment in cinematic history. Filmed entirely against blue screen — with every frame digitally filled in after principal photography was completed — this groundbreaking achievement in film is the brainchild of writer/director Kerry Conran, in collaboration with producer Jon Avnet, and marks Conran’s first venture into the world of major motion pictures.
