Digital Domain once again joined the G.I. Joes to create spectacular visuals for this sequel to the 2009 movie. This time the Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy, Cobra; they are also forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. Digital Domain took on the challenge of creating vehicles and aircraft that look fantastic and amazing, but which are also plausible — from HISS tanks to a Zeus Satellite, intercontinental Ballistic Missile, Cobra commander’s dual-jet-engine-powered helicopter and a weaponized exploding motorcycle. The nanomites are back too, evolved and artfully developed by Digital Domain artist into a transformative reveal.
