Trivia

Extensive handheld IMAX camera work was accomplished by DP Hoyte Van Hoytema who often had to man a rig weighing as much as 60lbs fully-loaded. Because of its top-heaviness, key grip Ryan Monro would stabilize the unit by physically holding it during complex takes. See more »

A Must See.
16 July 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What a Brilliant movie. We saw this on the night of the World Premiere, intense and packed full of fabulous acting... The camera shots were absolutely spot on, and you couldn't look away for a second without missing a perfect scene. The entire score, coupled with the dialogue and videography made this film and I cannot wait to see it again.
