I remember as a child walking out of the movie Tron and thinking "I love anything to do with the future". Movies like Tron, War Games and Star Wars were the seeding inspiration around my life as a product builder in financial markets and more recently in web applications.
What’s really interesting is how Apple is promoting these pre-release HD trailers. The content is rich and attracts traffic. Very smart Apple. Is the strategy is to get conversion to Quicktime format? Or, is to get high end CGI work to be associated with their brand which is also very strong in device and web design.
They are also pushing the new fantasy scifi called Avatar which is definitely worth a look even just for the pure CGI talent.
