Marvel’s Inhumans was shot with IMAX cameras, so it doesn’t look like a typical pilot blown up to IMAX – with all the small screen inadequacies painfully apparent.
Instead, everything feels the right size, but the CG sets (the city of Attilan on the dark side of the moon) lack weight – which wouldn’t matter so much if the script was better and the acting of widely varied quality.
Riviera is a ten-part series thriller, set in the south of France, that follows Georgina (Stiles), newly married to billionaire Constantine Clios when he is killed in a yacht explosion. She is shocked to discover the fortune that maintained his immaculate, ever-so-tasteful lifestyle is tainted with dishonesty, double-dealing, crime, and ultimately murder.
The series stars Julia Stiles, Iwan Rheon, Lena Olin, Adrian Lester, Phil Davis and Anthony LaPaglia.
Riviera is the new scripted drama from Sundance Now. It will premiere on Thursday, September 14th.
At Comic-Con 2017 ABC showed the new IMAX trailer for Marvel’s Inhumans – it showed us more footage and gave us our first look Triton, Karnak and Gorgon in action, and hints of Medusa’s power. We also got a bit more Lockjaw (never a bad thing!).
Marvel’s Inhumans’ two-hour premiere will run in IMAX theaters for two weeks beginning on September 1st – it will then premiere on ABC on September 29th.
