The Polar Express: Trailer Debut

The Polar Express: Trailer Debut

LONDON, September 22/PRNewswire/ -- Warner Bros. Pictures offers exciting new footage from the highly anticipated November 2004 release, THE POLAR EXPRESS.

The Academy Award-winning team of Tom Hanks and director Robert Zemeckis reunite for an inspiring adventure based on the beloved children's book by Chris Van Allsburg.

When a doubting young boy takes an extraordinary train ride to the North Pole, he embarks on a journey of self-discovery that shows, the wonder of life never fades for those who believe.

Sony Pictures Imageworks senior visual effects supervisors Ken Ralston, (five-time Oscar winner), and Jerome Chen, (2000 nominee), help bring this enchanting holiday story to life in full CG animation through Imageworks' next-generation motion capture process. Dubbed 'performance capture,' this innovative technique allows the actors' live-action performances to drive the emotions and movements of the digital characters.
