The "Crossing the line" one is only a short movie and was apparently only shot by Peter Jackson as a test for a new digital camera.

Quote:

"Jackson recently directed a short film entitled "Crossing the Line" to test a new model of digital Cinema camera RED ONE. The film takes place during WWI, and was shot in two days. "Crossing the line" was shown at NAB 2007 (national association of broadcasters) in 4K resolution. Clips of the film can be found at Reduser.net."

It's this quote that I find interesting:

"Additionally, Jackson will produce a remake of The Dam Busters in 2007"

Here's a hi-res (http://www.pixomondo.com/web/showreel/index.htm) version of The Red Baron trailer. Looking at the entry in IMDb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0365675/) it looks like the release date has been pushed back to 2008. It looks good, though I can't tell much about it's historical accuracy from the trailer. The posted reviews of a test screening don't bode well, unfortunately.

Crossing the line looked interersting, too. Presumably, Peter Jackson had most of the props he needed in his hangar in New Zealand (he's got an impressive collection of WWI aircraft.) Probably thought "Well, I'd like to test this new camera, but what to shoot.... Maybe I can do something with these..."

The Red Baron looks more like Crimson Skies than a WW1 movie based anywhere near reality, but the Crossing The Line trailer is definitely intriguing. I'd like to check that one out.

Red Baron looks like it's going to be a visual feast. The actors are good too.

That red baron trailer actually is not the official movie trailer, but a reel put together by the company that made the special effects.

I am cautious bout "the red baron" really. It's way too possible its getting a very flat love story thing from all what I read.

Is it just me or does the aerial combat in the Red Baron trailer look far too fast ?

The Crossing the line footage looks far more realistic in terms of manoeuvering speeds ( also nice to see a 2 seater being attacked ). Of course, PJ has some real WWI aircraft so I assume that his footage is not CGI - is the Red Baron stuff all CGI ? Anyone know ?

OMG I hope somebody encourages PJ to do something more with CROSSING THE LINE. It looks fantastic.
Red Baron, I'm not so keen. The RFC and Imperial Germany Airforce seem to be equipped with X-wings again !

Same here. Thanks for posting the links.

I'd love to see a remake of The Dambusters. That, George Lucas' Tuskegee film, The Red Baron.......the next few years might have some great aviation cinema.

Speaking of WWI movies, I watched "The Blue Max" the other day. Great movie.

Blue Max is a great movie - I mostly love it for it's "subtleness" in comparsion to newer films.
Has a great score by Jerry Goldsmith aswell.
I especially love the score for the attack sequence, wich you can watch on youtube here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zrkpvL8NoU4).

As for the Red Baron movie - I shure hope that Beowulfs concerns ( wich I share )will not turn out to be reality, but even then I will still love it for the sake of the fight sequences.
You know, I even enjoyed Pearl Harbor for those.
Crossing the Line of course looks more real as far as the planes go ( they are real afterall ), but anyone who can't appreciate real looking WW1 planes in the most detailed and accurate camo jobs I've ever seen even if they pull x-wing manouvres should put their prioritys straight.
What is the alternative afterall?

It seems The Blue Max will somehow never be outdone,soooo realistic and DARK bought it on DVD and on my 14th time watching it.The DR.1 scene going under the bridge scattering farm animals is worth it alone,letz hope we can perform such thrills in Knights of the Sky...HORRIDO!!
