I'm sure James meant "now" instead of "not" because the trailer was there. I found the 1080p trailer on a torrent site and it's beautiful.

Ooops. I corrected my prior post.

Since I posted a link to the HBO site, it's obvious I meant NOW. HEHE.

Oh sorry, I'd been reading about how the trailer was released then it was gone then it was back (but not for Canadians). So I figured James was saying it was gone again, I should have thought that through a little more.

I just re-watched BoB. After checking out the making-of again, I was stunned to hear how much it cost, and how long it took to film. I'm sure Pacific won't dissapoint.

Anyone know if they are shooting on film or digital?

The preview/trailer that I saw the other night on HBO-Canada certainly had quite a CGI heavy "look" to it - reminded me of the first trailer I saw for G.I. Joe (although I'm confident the narrative will be vastly superior).

It wouldn't surprise me if they went digital because they're adding in so much post-production "blowed up real good!" stuff.

They used lots of CGI on BoB as well... it just was really well done. There were shots that I had no idea that they weren't real. For example, the retreat of the German forces after surrender as Easy advances...

They will do a nice "making of" for Pacific, too... it will just be awhile before we see it!

HBO programs used to be aired on the Movie Network prior to the establishment of HBO Canada which is now the exclusive home for HBO first run productions.

Canadian broadcast of Band of Brothers starts tonight.... don't recall it ever being shown in HD here yet.

And frankly this is the only thing that prevented me from cancelling Movie Central's progressively weaker and weaker HD package.

Good to watch as a lead-in to 'Pacific'

I'm in the middle of reading (Kindle version) "With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa". Great book.

So far, I've recorded the "Making Of" show 5 times (HBO Canada HD and TMN HD) and every time something else has aired in its place.

I thought things would change today but nope. It's on again tonight on TMN. We'll see.
